Friday Favorites (9/5)

Happy Friday!

Here are my favorites from the week…

Apothederm Moisturizing Cleanser

Apothederm Moisturizing Cleanser

While I tend to stick to one skin care routine for awhile, I love trying out new face washes.  This one by Apothederm is wonderful, especially if you have dry skin.  It contains avocado oil, carrot, and seabuckthorn- all ingredients that fight the effects of aging and add hydration to the skin.  I have been liking it so much that I actually might stick with it for awhile…which says a lot coming from me.

 

Shred It with Weights

Kettlebell

The first time that I ever used a kettlebell, I nearly killed myself.  Uncoordinated people need to be careful when it comes to swinging around heavy objects.  Luckily, I eventually got the hang of it because using a kettlebell is an amazing workout.  If you’re looking to get into kettlebell workouts, I suggest this DVD by Jillian Michaels.  You can also watch it instantly.

 

Cococare Coconut Oil

Cococare Coconut Oil 

I like having coconut oil on hand, so I can apply it to my skin throughout the day.  But who wants to constantly carry around a giant glass jar?  Cococare is just small enough to stash in my purse, diaper bag, glove compartment, desk drawer, etc., so I never have to be without my beloved coconut oil.

 

Ballet Flats by Tieks

Tieks

I am not exaggerating when I say that these are the comfiest ballet flats on the planet.  I’ll admit that I haven’t tried on every pair of ballet flats in the world, but I simply cannot imagine anything that can even begin to compare.  These are ideal for mothers and anyone who is on their feet a lot.  They even fold up, so you can carry them in your diaper bag or purse.  Once your high heels have your feet begging for mercy at the end of a long evening, you’ll be thankful to have those flats handy.  Unfortunately, Tieks are not inexpensive, but they are well worth the investment.

DIY Blogs

I was hit pretty hard by the crafting bug this week and my evenings (after the children have gone to bed) have been consumed by Pinterest and DIY/crafting blogs.  One that I am completely loving right now is The 36th Avenue.  I mean, just check out these adorable tutorials for pumpkin Mason jars and a wreath made of cupcake liners!
