Back again with Friday Favs! This week, since Charity is starting school on Monday, I am going with a more of a “back to school” theme. So, without further ado….
It’s Friday, Friday, Friday! Ok, that song was annoying, but amazing on Tuesdays nights when my manager at QuikTrip would sing it to me. Not the manager, manager, but the 2nd assistant. Yes, Tuesday overnight was my Friday. Leave me alone.
So, here we are again! With the Favs!! Wooot!
Its our Lasko 18″ Stand fan (with a remote). We have had many fans in our relationship. I have to say, this has been my favorite. It has not 3 settings, but 4. And a remote! Brian likes the remote part, maybe a little too much. With this heat, it stays on 4 and nothing lower. Its that hot and our air conditioner works overtime. Like most fans in houses with pets, you have to clean the thing 1-2 time a month. No big deal. I learned after arguing with it quite a bit that taking a screwdriver to the front really helps the front cage pop off, but be careful to TURN IT OFF. Also, its helpful to do it when the “hot one” (Brian) is out of the house. All in all, it moves my hair. It helps keep our tiny apartment cool, I would buy Lasko fans again.
These deserve a little backstory, Charity’s hair kept getting in her way at karate. I went to Target and I bought these babies: Scünci No Slip Grip Evolution Gel Elastic Hair Ties. Yea, long name. Either way, we bought them and I was able to snag 3. Since I still have not gotten my hair cut, my hair MUST go up. So, I use one of these. I am not usually a fan of something so large, but I love them. They hold all of my hair that is capable of going up and stay. That is huge! They also work for Charity’s thick mess of wavy hair. Even better. All in all, I would totally buy them again and I am recommending them!
Please note, unless otherwise stated, I bought all of the stuff on my Friday Favs with hard earned money. I was not paid, perked or compensated for telling y’all about my stuff, I just love them! Thanks!
Happy August y’all!! Its flipping hot! I am trying to stay cool, but I still have a post to do! Moving on….
This guy, from SimpleHuman is amazing. We were skeptical of spending so much hard earned dough on a trashcan but, it has been worth it. I try to keep things that Lucky can’t have out of his reach, and this guy has been a lifesaver to do it. We got ours at the Container Store (never been before living here) and I haven’t regretted it! Lucky can’t have chicken bones and we get Bootleg Chicken sometimes around here, I don’t feel bad about throwing the bones away and locking the lid. Lucky has tried to (occasionally) get into it, but he has not been successful, it falls over and stays locked, thank God. The slim design has been great for our tiny-ass-apartment but will work in any space.
Sinful Colors, I love this nail polish. I found it a few years ago at Walgreens. I know they sell them at Walmart also. They are the best bang for your buck. Some of the colors require a top coat, since it dries more of a matte color, but its not that big of a deal. I used to try to use Wet N Wild, but their polish is so cheap and chips off in less than 24 hours. Not with Sinful Colors. They are $1.99 and come in so many colors!
Back again with Friday Favs! I think from now on, I will just be featuring 2 things in my Friday Favs posts.
First up! Chocolate! What girl doesn’t love chocolate?
Actually, just ask Brian, I am not a huge fan of chocolate. Haha. However, Hershey’s Nuggets with Toffee and Almonds are amazing. They have extra crunch and so tasty! I like toffee, but usually it is a large hard piece and I can’t chew it without thinking I am going to break my teeth. Not so pleasant when you are supposed to be enjoying a piece of toffee. There are just bits of toffee, so no teeth breaking feelings. You just can’t trust me alone with a bag of this.
I love Thermacare HeatWraps! They are amazing. I have a bad back, so I have used them when it gets really bad and I still have to work. I love them because you can just put it on and it stays good for 8 hours. They have them for other body parts too. I have used the ones for your knee and the menstrual relieve ones pictured above. They work amazing for what aches. Its like having a portable heating pad. Love it!
They also have cold wraps. These are new, I have not tried them, yet. I am sure there will be a time that will come. If you head over to their website, they have coupons going on right now.
P.S. Just as a reminder, I am not paid or perked in any way to write about my Friday Favs. I buy everything just like a normal person.
Welcome to the new blog!! Hopefully, I can get the kinks out and make this a smooth transition for us all! In the meantime, here are some things I love!
Where The Red Fern Grows was my favorite book as a child. I have a copy of it today that I loaned to Charity a few months ago. I read it over and over and cried every time I read it. I am thinking maybe a read is in my future. This is from Good Reads:
Billy, Old Dan and Little Ann — a Boy and His Two Dogs…
A loving threesome, they ranged the dark hills and river bottoms of Cherokee country. Old Dan had the brawn, Little Ann had the brains — and Billy had the will to train them to be the finest hunting team in the valley. Glory and victory were coming to them, but sadness waited too. And close by was the strange and wonderful power that’s only found…
An exciting tale of love and adventure you’ll never forget.
Pepperplate is an app I recently found. I love it because I can add a button on my Favorite’s Bar and add recipes from whatever site I am looking at. It also has easy import from several well known sites. Its also FREE!!
That isn’t the best part, though. I love that I can make a menu for the week, which is something we do on paper. I can also add a recipe to my grocery list. The other nice thing about this site: I can access it from all of my devices whether I am on my laptop (via the website), iPad (via an app), or my phone (also via an app found in Google Play). It syncs them all!
Now, if I could get it to hold my pantry list and cook the food for me, we would be in business! A girl can dream, right?
I only have 2 this week off the top of my head, I apologize. Check out the book (or give it to your kiddo) and check out the app/website! I love it so far!
I was not paid or perked in any way to let y’all know about these things. They are just my favorite things and I am sharing them with you. As always, I buy everything like a normal person and these opinions are my own, unless otherwise stated.
Its Friday again! I am back to tell you products that I am loving!
