While life is crazier than ever there are two things you can count on me being consistent with, healthy living and Friday Favorites! Without further ado here are all the things I’m loving, eating, or buying!
Favorite Treat of the Week
These Chocolate Chip Cookies. I made them for ice cream sandwiches, but I prefer them all alone. They are seriously the most delish cookies and I think you should make them for Santa this year. You’re welcome.
Favorite Kitchen Tool
OXO Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop! People this is a cookie making game changer and with all the holiday cookies you’ll likely be baking in the coming weeks you’ll want one! You’ll thank me later. As basic as this sounds, I love my slow cooker. When life gets busy my Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker saves my family from eating out more often than not. I’m not kidding when I say I use it weekly.
Favorite Internet Deals of the week
I finally purchased a decent blow dryer and wow it makes a big difference! I was in the market because mine died on me mid blowout…. don’t let that happen to you. I’ve always just purchased a blowdryer from TjMaxx, or the like. Since I was tired of recently it every two years or so I decided to spend some money and invest in a blow dryer. Anyway, I love it and it’s currently on sale and has a free gift with purchase (online and in-store). I purchased the Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer ($79) and received a Styling wand free! Here’s the gist, FREE Styling Tool with any $39.99 Hot Tools Styling Tool purchase (offer valid 10/22/17-12/30/17 or while supplies last).
Best Purchase of the Week
OK, ladies when was the last time you were fitted for a bra. Even better, when was the last time you purchased a new bra?! Yeah, it has been nearly TWO years for me. Let’s just say my bra hasn’t fit properly in a long time (aka it’s WAY too big). When I went to Victoria Secret the other day I walked straight to a sales gal and explained my situation. After we determined my size, I told her the type of bras I like, and TA-DA I was trying on 3 different options and purchased two of those styles. I was in and out in 20 minutes! Best bra shopping experience ever and the girls are much happier. What did I buy? I purchased this Front-close Bralette in black and blush (currently on sale for $15; purchased a small) and this Perfect Shape Full Coverage Bra in almost new, because I’m basic like that. I should note, while it says full coverage it’s more of a medium coverage demi bra. I should be good for a few years now, hahaha.
Favorite ‘Healthy’ Food Product
I use the term healthy loosely because truly how healthy are protein bars. However, they are a great grab and go option. I always pack bar when I’m traveling because you never know. Personally, I typically grab a Perfect Bar (only when I have extra fat to spare) or an RX bar, but recently I discovered Think Thin bars. Yeah, yeah you’re probably thinking I’m late to the game, but have you tried the latest seasonal flavor, Dark Chocolate Peppermint?! Yup, game charger. Macros are on point at 19c/5f/10p making it tasty afternoon snack or treat.
