It’s Time for Friday Favorites

Hi friends! It’s Friday and you know what that means. It’s time for Friday favorites. I hope you’ve had a great week. For me it sure feels like a lot longer than a week ago that we were on our vacation. I’m ready to go back! I’m linking up with the usual suspects to share all the things that made us happy this week.

I decided to branch out and try a new primer. I love my Avon Magix, but every so often I just want to see if there’s anything out there I might find more effective. So far I like it. It does a really nice job of mattifying my T-zone. I’m giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I’d do 5, but it doesn’t contain SPF.?

The same goes for dry shampoo. I’d been using Batiste for a while and ran across this Hask dry shampoo and figured what the heck. I’d give it a whirl. Once again, I like it. Of course I’m not exactly an expert on dry shampoos and use them more freshening up, but it seems to do the trick. The Hask comes in a variety of kinds from volumizing to charcoal purifying to Biotin thickening. And just in case you noticed the St. Tropez face mist in the background…it’s good!!!

Rocksbox, Coast to Coast

This is my latest box from Rocksbox. I wore these earrings on vacation with my bathing suit everyday. (they’re actually a pale pink, contrary to the picture) Just in case you’re new around here, here’s what it’s all about. You pay $21 a month, make a wish list, receive 3 pieces in your box to wear as long as you want, or wear once, send back and get something else. Your $21 is applied to any piece you choose to purchase that month. If you want to buy all the pieces in a box, you’ll get an extra $10 off. Use my code COASTTOCOAST2XOXO for your first month FREE. Who doesn’t like FREE?


A couple of weeks ago Andrea (Momfessionals) shared a new nail polish she was obsessed with and dag-on-it if I didn’t feel the same way. Stupid as it may sound, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I finally bought it this week. It’s called Toned Down, the perfect gray/blue/purple depending on the light.


Well it’s taken a sweet forever, but my Nordstrom sale boxes have finally started rolling in. The website may not have crashed this year, but it sure has taken long enough for stuff to ship. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but as my brother says, “it is what it is”.

Two of the things I’ve received are these Zella leggings and Zella tank. Not gonna’ lie…I love both of them. The leggings are 7/8 which means they are a great length for my short legs. They have a pocket on the outside of both thighs where you could stick a credit card or maybe even your phone. Of course you won’t want to work out with your phone on your leg. The tank is awesome too. I bought my first Zella tank a while back and it quickly moved to the front of the line. This one will be doing the same thing. It has a little bit of a low back with a bar across it and is just adorable. I wear a medium in both of these. I don’t like my workout clothes to be tight.

    I need a new nail polish color. I did try a non toxic one and I’m going to see if I can keep that up. But that color is amazing Lisa,

    I absolutely love that polish! I think the six of us should have a pre-Austin beach vacay! Ha!

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:15 am

      Thanks girlie! A beach vacay with the six of us sounds heavenly. XOXO

    Nice wrap-up, Lisa. I like the nail polish on you–I guess I’m too old to wrap my head around the grey/blue polish trend, but I can enjoy it on others! Glad to hear your sale purchases are arriving!

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      Thanks Kim! You aren’t too old for anything friend. Just do it!!! XOXO

    I love pretty much all things Zella, but I’m seriously late to the game in terms of buying Zella leggings – and those are so cute on you! You basically always look flawless!

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      As always, you are way to sweet. You should try a pair of the Zella leggings. I bet you’d love them. Happy Monday!! XO

  9. July 26, 2019 / 9:36 am

    Loving the Zella look. And as for that pic of you and the kids, adorable. So adorable that I almost missed that can dress, love it, and just perfect on you. But I was a little taken aback when I read about wearing earrings with your bathing suit … I really must up my game, my beach look right now is sooo not earring-worthy!
    Happy weekend hugs, Mary x.

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      You’re a hoot Mary! I just decided to go for it with the earrings. I love the Zella workout wear. Have a great week sweet lady!!! XO

    Well you are doing all kinds of branching out! The nail polish, the dry shampoo, and the primer – who are you?? Hahahaha!!! That primer sounds nice, my skin is so dang oily!
    Look at how fab you are in those leggings – that running is agreeing with you my friend!

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      For real! Who am I? You are such a sweet cheerleader my friend.XOXO

  11. July 26, 2019 / 8:19 pm

    Those Zella leggings and tank are almost too cute to work out in! They look great on you! Love your new nail polish too!

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      Thanks Laura! I wore the top Saturday and loved it!!! XO

  12. July 27, 2019 / 1:04 am

    Love the necklace! Enjoy your weekend and I hope to see you on my Fancy Friday linkup party!

  13. July 27, 2019 / 5:15 am

    That nail color is so pretty on you Lisa! I’d take cute tank and comfy leggings as well! 🙂

  14. July 28, 2019 / 9:17 am

    I love the subtle pattern on those leggings! I am not really a bright, splashy leggings kind of gal, haha. And I have a bar necklace just like that one you got from Rocksbox–I love it and always reach for it when I’m not sure what to wear! Hope you’re having a great weekend, Lisa! xoxo

    • July 29, 2019 / 9:03 am

      Hi Jess! I’m the same with leggings, although I did order a bright pair to try. We shall see. Hope you had the best weekend! XO
