Trader Joe’s, Target and Misc. Friday Favorites

Hey y’all! Or maybe I should say hey fall. Would you believe we had a little rain two days this week? To most of you that may not seem like a big deal, but here in California rain in September is un-us-u-al. We haven’t seen or felt a raindrop in months. Crazy, huh? Today is Friday and I’ve got Trader Joe’s, Target & misc. Friday Favorites to share with you.

Friday Favorites, Coast to Coast

Birthday boy in the house!!! This is guy is turning…well, that’s not important, but today’s his day!!! Happy Birthday to our number one man in the Richardson house.

Trader Joe's Hair Mask

I think I saw this on one of Carrie’s posts recently. I decided to grab a tube one of the last times I was in TJ’s and I’m so glad I did. It’s thick, creamy and smells dreamy. HA! Seriously, I’m one of those girls that loves the smell of sunscreen and the beach. The smell of this reminds me of the Tropicana suntan oil we basted with when we were laying out on blacktop or the roof to get that killer tan. It’s a great conditioner and I’ll definitely being buying more of it.

Trader Joe's Salt Scrub

Yet another item I’d seen recommended somewhere. If you want to treat yourself to a little at home spa day, grab a jar of this. I’ve been using it on my elbows, chest, knees and heels several times a week. It leaves them super moisturized and the smell of lavender is divine.

Coconut + body butter. Need I say more. If you want a super creamy moisturizer, then this is it. This is the kind of cream I used all winter when we lived in Minnesota. My legs would be so dry and itch and something like this would really help. I’ve been using it on the days I use the lavender scrub for a one, two punch. Apparently they have a pumpkin variety now. One of these and a lavender scrub would make a great gift for a girlfriend.

A girl can never have too much plaid. #wordstoliveby The colors in this shirt are gorgeous and the fabric is nice and drapey. I knew I wanted it from the first time I saw it.

When I spotted this, I knew it and the plaid shirt were a match made in heaven, and I was ?right. It’s super soft and you might even call it squishy. It will look good over a basic long sleeve tee or a turtleneck, with leggings or a pencil skirt. You could even belt it with this belt for a less boxy look.

Don’t judge. I wore this sweatshirt two days in a row and broke out my newest pair of Zella leggings. #totalcomfort #alldayeveryday Right now it looks like only solids are available in the sweatshirt, but the prints circle in and out of stock, so if you want one like mine, keep checking.

Remember that time I wanted a bracelet and was afraid it would be too big, but ordered one anyway? Oh happy day, it fit and they are BOGO again. Not the lame kind of BOGO that’s buy one get one half, but real BOGO. Buy one, get one FREE. These are some of my top picks. Don’t kill the messenger, but Christmas is only a little over 9 weeks away. #nokidding

    Such cute fashion picks today! Love your plaid shirt and poncho AND sweatshirt! And the TJ’s Coconut Body Butter is a staple for me. I tried the Pumpkin spice version one year and couldn’t get into it, so now I just stick to coconut. If you try it let us know what you think!

    • September 30, 2019 / 9:19 am

      Oops…I just bought 2 of the pumpkin versions to take to my girls next week. I guess we’ll see. LOL

    Good finds today. I tried on a cardigan that is similar in shape to your poncho. It was darling, but I was wondering if the lack of sleeves would be a deal breaker. (?)

    • September 30, 2019 / 9:19 am

      Thanks friend. You know I love a good sale! The sleeve thing doesn’t bother me especially since I won’t probably wear it without something underneath. XO

      Thank you Grace. I just found all these comments you’ve made that were filtered out because you were new and I wasn’t notified. My apologies. XOXO

    That’s a great deal on those bracelets. Christmas…who am I kidding…I want them for myself!!

    Did you see that TJ’s has a pumpkin body butter too? It smells amazing! Love your plaid top and that cute poncho!

      Please do. I’m so much happier when the hills are green instead of this nasty brown. LOL

    I love that hair mask and I did mention it on one of my TJ’s posts! Thanks for the call out. Ohh, I was just thinking this morning that I really need to go in AE sometime soon. I really need a couple of new flannel shirts and that oversized sweatshirt looks SO soft and I might need that! LOL! I also love their jeans and need a couple new pairs. I just got the TJ Pumpkin Body Butter and I haven’t tried it yet. OMG, I bought over $200 of pumpkin stuff at TJ’s the other day. I am just absolutely nuts. #donttellthehusbandlol


  12. September 20, 2019 / 7:54 pm

    Your comment about ‘lame BOGO’ made me laugh out loud! I HATE those BOGO 1/2 off! Puhlease girl! That’s a load of bologna! I’ve been eyeing those bracelets lately, checking them out again now!

  13. September 21, 2019 / 12:39 am

    Oh those bracelet look good! And coconut body creme! Ah yes, that s a long time ago I used that! Have a great weekend!

  14. September 21, 2019 / 7:59 am
