Friday Favorites

Hi friends! This is one of those weeks that has just flown by. Of course it would, since I’m basically on vacation. HA! Wednesday I woke up in the wee hours of the morning and realized I totally forgot to get a post out. I guess that’s a sure fire sign of a good trip. Well I’m not going to let Friday Favorites get by without sharing at least a few quick things with you and linking up for Friday Favorites.

Coast to Coast Friday Favorites

Sunday, Soma had a big bra event and everyone could get ONE bra for $15. ANY BRA!!! Katie and I ran in right before they closed to take advantage of the offer. I’ve never had a really nice strapless bra. I typically buy them at TJMaxx or Marshall’s for about seven bucks. I’m happy to report I walked out with a convertible, strapless, pushup bra that’s normally $58 for $15. All the praise hands!!! I also got one of their Enbliss bras [because Katie couldn’t find one she liked]. Again…praise hands!!! I’ve been wearing the Enbliss version everyday and loving it. The fabric and fit are fantastic. #triplef not triple F. LOL!


Rocksbox #4! This one was really good! Two of the pieces were Kendra Scott. The earrings and bracelet. The earrings are from the new summer line. They are beautiful and not heavy…like you’d think they’d be. The bracelet is awesome. I have a set of 3 from KS and this one stacked perfectly with those. It’s super easy to bend to fit my wrist and lightweight. The choker necklace is Gorjana and is the perfect piece for layering with other necklaces.

In case you’re new around here, let me give you a quick run down on how Rocksbox works. It’s a subscription service that costs $21 month. You go on the Rocksbox website and make a wishlist and then you receive a box with 3 pieces to try…but before the box is mailed you have the opportunity to swap any/all pieces. #lovethat You can return the box as many times as you like and get new pieces to wear as long as you are paying the monthly fee. Have a special event and need jewelry but don’t want to buy it? You can get it from Rocksbox and then send it back. So easy. Use code COASTTOCOAST2XOXO for your first month FREE. #tryityoumightlikeit


Y’all know I’m in Nashville working on Katie’s apartment. I had ordered this desk and she and I put it together. It was pretty easy with the exception of a few weird screw thingys that were hard to turn and we had to be really careful not to split the wood. For a desk that comes in a box it’s really good quality, sturdy and absolutely adorable. #highlyrecommend

Okay, here’s your helpful hint for the Friday favorites. I have suffered with mouth ulcers my entire life. #ouch I think some people are just more prone to getting them. #unlucky Someone told me to try putting Alum on them. What do you know? It works. I’ve probably tried every home remedy out there in the last 50 years, and this one is the one that yields the best and quickest results. #giveitatry

    I’m glad you’re having a great time. The desk is adorable and love your bracelet stack. Anytime you can find a quality bra on sale is a win!

    You had ordered some comforters (or at least one) – did you like it?

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      We used the white one. I’m going to do a post on her whole room soon!

    Great tip about the Alum!! Katie’s table is so great. You did good mama!! Arm Candy there girlfriend!! Keep on having fun with your peeps, love you!!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      It really works well for me. Hope your week is off to a great start.

    Thanks for sharing about alum! I only get them when I get super stressed (I had them so bad right before our wedding because I wanted everything to go well). That is an amazing deal on bras! I wish I knew about that! I should sign up for their emails!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      Absolutely, it’s great to have tips like that in your back pocket. I’ll send you a referral from Soma?

    I enjoyed finding out about your favorites by visiting from Shelbee’s link up.

    My Rocksbox stylist needs to step up her game. I haven’t been thrilled with my last two boxes. Boo! Glad to see you having so much fun with Katie!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      OH NO!!! Did you make a wishlist and are you switching out pieces when they send the pre-shipment email? I do that!

    I just loved my first Rocksbox, I bought all 3 items! I got a ton of discounts on them, because I had a person sign up with my code, a bday code and some other stuff. YAY!! I put my account on hold for 3 months… may get a box every few months for fun. WOW, I love your last box!! LOVE it. You and Katie have so much fun together! Always love watching on IG Stories and reading on here about your adventures. Hope she loves the new apartment!


    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      I’m so glad you liked your Rocksbox. Putting it on hold is a great idea. Just get one every so often. We have so much fun together and her apartment has turned out so cute. I’m going to do a post on it!

  11. August 17, 2019 / 7:26 am

    Triple F…ha, ha! I bet you had a wonderful time helping Katie set up her apartment. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      We’ve had a ball and it’s turned out so cute!!! Thanks Tanya!!!

    Filling away the alum idea for future reference. I get what we have always called canker sores about once a month or when I am sick. Have swish peroxide in my mouth with good results but this sounds as good or better. Thanks!

    Love the desk. That Target has everything. Is Katie going to school in Nashville? Vandy?

    I wrote a bra hunt post a few months ago and at the time tried Soma but the bra they sent had some serious pleating or wrinkling on the cups. Have heard great things about Enbliss. Need to try them again. Good job on getting such a bargain!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:47 pm

      Target does have everything! She goes to a small private school.

    I’m impressed that you and your daughter put the desk together. Some items can be soooo darn frustrating to get together properly. I’m impressed and know that it was more enjoyable doing it together. Yes, I’ll file the Alum hint away for future use. Have a great new week!

    • August 20, 2019 / 3:38 pm

      And then we did the television stand. We’re quite impressed with ourselves. LOL

    I love Katie’s new desk. What a fun season of life to be in…I know, the workload isn’t so fun but there’s something about that time period that feels so full of adventure and promise! And I love Soma bras too – third love and I have an Aerie bra that is pretty good!
