Friday Favorites (11/21)

From food to beauty to shopping, I have lots of good things to share with you today, so let’s get started!


Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar

Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar

If you read my weekend grocery haul post, you already know that I bought a peanut butter & jelly Larabar on a whim.  I’ve been wishing that I bought more than just one all week long, and I definitely plan on getting a few more very soon.  If you are a PB&J lover, you will go crazy for these!  (Update from my dear friend Kirsten: Another bonus is that this flavor doesn’t melt in hot cars, diaper bags, or purses!)


Silk Almond Milk Coffee Creamer

Vanilla Almond Creamer

OK, I honestly thought this was kind of gimmicky when I saw it in the grocery store.  Of course, that didn’t stop me from buying it.  I guess that I was just curious to see how this coffee was any different than regular vanilla almond milk.   I’m happy to report that this was a total win.  I cannot use regular coffee creamer because of my dairy intolerance, and sometimes I really do miss that consistency in my coffee and find that almond milk can water it down a bit too much.  This is the answer to my prayers…or at least it would be if I prayed about my morning coffee.


Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola

Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola

Ever since I received a sample of this granola in the mail, I’ve been adding it to my yogurt as a snack, and I even sprinkled some on top of my pumpkin smoothie this morning.  I’m a big fan of Nature’s Path in general and love that their products don’t contain any funky ingredients.  Store-bought granola often contains lots of processed sugars, but this granola is super healthy and “enriched with pumpkin and flax seeds to offer up an impressive 450 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids and 1500 mg of Omega-6 fatty acids.”


Reviva Labs Rosewater Facial Spray

Reviva Labs Rosewater Facial Spray

I’ll use this spray several times throughout the day.  It is very effective when it comes to refreshing and moisturizing my skin and even setting my makeup.  Also, it works wonders for getting rid of any cakey-ness that my makeup might cause.   And of course, it smells like roses.

I have been using Ebates since 2006, and I am huge, massive, ginormous fan.  If you haven’t already signed up, you really should get on it before you start your holiday shopping.  Basically, you can earn cash back every time you shop at certain stores.  Some stores offer more cash back than others, but most of them run promotions and you can often find coupon codes.  Throughout the years, I have racked up almost $500 in cash back, and I am still kicking myself for all of the times that I forgot to use Ebates before making a purchase! You can use my referral code to sign up if you would like, but whether you use my code or not, you just really need to shop through Ebates.  I guarantee that it will become one of your favorites too!


What are your favorites this week?

Happy Friday!

  1. I just love everything about Silk! They are such an awesome company!

  2. I LOVE Larabars! They don’t contain soy or dairy, so they’re the only protein bar I can eat. And they’re delicious! I love the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip one, and the Cherry. YUM.

  3. yes! love ebates! i haven’t seen that creamer yet but i love their milk!

  4. I haven’t had that Larabar, but I’m sure I’d love it. The granola, on the other hand, is a long-time fav of mine. It’s the best granola out there!
