Friday Favorites and Still Locked Up

Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. You know what I mean? Friday Favorites and still locked up, is just an example. HA! Making fun of our situation at this point is a must. Do you know what I’d give to go to a restaurant, sit down and order? Me either, but I’m pretty sure it’s a lot. LOL We are for sure going to have a story to tell. I can at least insert all the praise hands here that the weather is nice. I feel so much better when it’s warm and I can get outside. That is for sure a favorite.

I initially sent these jeans back with my last Prime Wardrobe, but kept thinking about them, so you know what that means. I reordered them. Seriously friends, these jeans are so comfortable. The material is fantastic. It’s super soft and stretchy. The only drawback is the high waist. It’s pretty darn high. HA! So you know I must really like them if I’m willing to overlook that. I also like the button front. I think it’s a fun detail and more flattering than high waist jeans with a zipper. This top comes in 3 colors, and this the 3rd summer it’s been brought back. That’s a sign of a good piece. You can wear it out, tucked in, or tie the front like I have here.

In the picture of the jeans, I don’t have any makeup on (except mascara). I’ve been using this Self Tan Serum for the face, and I LOVE the effect. The color is very natural, and it’s easy to use. I apply it in the morning when I get up. You aren’t supposed to apply any other products for a couple of hours, so that’s why I do it then. You could also apply it at night, but I don’t want to risk it getting on my sheets. I have a discount code for 15% off if you want to try it for yourself. Can you guess what it is? CoasttoCoast of course

Now you know I have a favorite tanning mouse that I’ve been sharing, but when I was asked to try the face serum above, I was also asked to try a couple of other products from the same brand. One of them is a Self Tanner Dry Oil. I think it must be called a “dry oil” because it absorbs pretty quickly without leaving your skin “greasy”. The color is very natural. I already have a good base tan right now, so I put it on just one leg and I could see the difference. It wasn’t orangey or weird looking, it just made my tan look deeper. See for yourself. The color developed pretty quickly, but continues to develop for 24 hours. The same coupon code can be used on this for 15% off as well. Code: CoasttoCoast

On a side note: I think it’s so hard to document tanning product results very easily. ?

Golden Star Beauty Tanning Oil

Well, I know this is a repeat from last Friday, but I am just really so excited that I like these smoothies from Revive Superfoods. When I was approached, I was hesitant. I mean it could go sideways real fast. You know? This was the 3rd one (out of 9) that I’ve tried. They have all been equally yummy and are soooo easy. I do love a good smoothie, but I don’t like dragging out all of the ingredients to make just one. #timesuck Just remove the lid, pour in liquid of your choice (I use almond milk), and then dump in the blender, Magic Bullet, whatever it is you use. I add a couple of spoonfuls vanilla Greek yogurt to mine for added sweetness. Put the lid back on and stick in your straw! Easy-peasy! These have fruits, veggies, proteins, chia seeds, and flax seeds depending on the flavor.
Use my code COASTTOCOAST255 for 55% off, and the be sure to let me know how you like them.

Let’s talk sales for just a minute. Nordstrom has some new markdowns and all of these TB Miller sandals are included. The patent leather are 33% off. If you’ve been thinking about investing in a pair, this would be a great way to start. They are so cute, and a great price. The navy pair with white stitching has a thicker bottom for those of you who don’t like a really flat shoe. These are even pricier than the regular TB’s, and they are on sale for 40% off. This is also the perfect time for big purchases at Nordstrom while you can get 10X the reward points if you’re a card holder and 5X if you’re a regular Nordy member.

I took advantage of the 10X points to order a couple of things myself.

This one will come as no surprise. You know how I feel about smocking.❤️ I think this will be the perfect top to wear with my new wide leg crop jeans.

Aren’t these so cute?! Yet another item I’ve been eyeing for a while. I think they just came on the Nordstrom site, so I ordered this tan pair. I kinda wanted the clear, but they sold out quickly in my size…make that all sizes. I’m crossing my fingers these won’t be too wide, because they sure are cute!

My niece turned 18 and I sent her this as part of her birthday gift. When it came in the mail, I wanted to keep it for myself, but I was a good aunt and sent it to her. It’s a great deal and makes for a perfect gift. I had a cute little seersucker makeup bag monogrammed with her initials and sent them together. This would be a great grad gift too.

And because we all need a little laugh every now and then….

    That tanning oil sounds so good – I love our tanning mousse but I am always game to try anything new. So glad you got those jeans. Now I need to remember not to bring mine when I come visit so I don’t end up taking both yours and mine home with me – you know how I roll! Ha!!

      I totally agree about not “stealing” Lisa’s jeans!

    • June 22, 2020 / 9:45 pm

      I think you’ll love the tanning products. I’ll be anxious to see what you think. XOXO

    Yes, we do have to just sit back and laugh about all this! Plus, we know who’s in control. Warmer weather definitely helps and your pool! Mmm May have to get another pair of Millers. Glad you got the jeans. They’re fun and look great on you. Have a super duper weekend my beautiful friend! xo

    That face tanning serum sounds good – I need to check it out! And I love your jeans – a high waist is a bummer (I totally agree) but they seem to fit you perfectly and are very flattering.

    • June 22, 2020 / 9:45 pm

      It really is. The color is excellent. I am loving these jeans in spite of the high waist. LOL

    • June 22, 2020 / 9:45 pm

      Oh my goodness…I’m sure. I’ll be so happy when we can start eating out. XOXO

    • June 22, 2020 / 9:38 pm

      The smoothies are so easy and yummy. I’ve like almost all of the ones I’ve tried. There was one I wasn’t crazy about, but I’ve still got a few more to try. I’m loving the jeans. XO

  10. June 12, 2020 / 5:19 pm

    I’m so glad we aren’t still locked up. We were going stir crazy!! Tomorrow we are having a scavenger hunt at 3 Goodwills, just for something fun to do!!
    I love my wide leg pants…I bet you wear them more than you ever thought…that’s how I’ve been.

    The face tanning serum sounds really good and I love that Tarte set! Those memes are so funny! Have a good weekend!

      The serum is great and she loved the Tarte set! YAY! XO

  13. June 13, 2020 / 6:33 am

    I would have wanted to keep that Tarte set too! Things are open here in Texas, but shopping doesn’t feel the same. Yesterday was the first day I noticed that the streets were crowded with cars and the restaurants seemed full. People are ready to get out. Hope you have a good weekend!
