Friday Favorites: 07/03/15

Hey friends! Happy 4th of July weekend! Woo hoo!

Sorry I went a little MIA on you yesterday! Truth be told, I just didn’t have anything too exciting or interesting to chat about so I decided to take the day off. It was a good idea because I had plenty of other things to be doing to prepare for our trip to Wisconsin. We have to be at the airport later this afternoon and we should arrive at my grandparents house late in the night, then from there we’ll drive up to Door County (a 2-3 hour drive) on Saturday morning. I have a feeling it’s going to be a long day or two, but I have lots of activities and snacks to keep the little man happy so hopefully it does the trick.

Enough of my chitter chatter though, let’s get to some Friday Favorites! Below are a few things that made me smile this week. Thanks to Heather and Katie for the link-up!

Archer Farms Monster Trail Mix

I think most anyone that has tried this stuff can agree that it’s basically crack. I bought a bag to snack on during our upcoming travels, but I may or may not have broken into it a little early to grab a handful or five. I’m pretty sure it’s going to practically be gone by the time we leave Phoenix later today. Whoops!


Rimmel London Matte BB Cream

I’ve been on the hunt for a quality beauty balm cream that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg for awhile now. I typically use a liquid foundation during the cooler months, but I wanted something lighter for the hot summer. After trying a couple different brands that didn’t leave me super thrilled, I finally came across this Rimmel London Matte BB Cream at Target and I’m totally loving it! It’s lightweight, leaves just enough coverage, includes moisturizer and sunscreen, and leaves my face looking finished but not overdone. You can’t beat it for $6!


Watermelon Chobani

I’ve been incorporating a fair amount of Greek yogurt in my diet this pregnancy to help keep my protein levels up, and I’ve been all about the tropical and refreshing flavors since the super hot temps joined us about a month ago. Think coconut, pineapple, mango, etc. Recently I spotted the limited edition watermelon Chobani on the shelves at my grocery store and wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it but figured it was worth a try. Conclusion? YUM! I’m a fan!


$1 thank you cards

I was digging through the dollar bins at Target the other day and came across a pack of adorable handmade thank you cards. I couldn’t believe a package of them was only ONE dollar! You can never have enough thank you cards on hand so it only made sense to get them.



First I was all about the pineapple (well, maybe I still am…), and now I’m also totally loving on the mangoes. As much of a pain they are to slice and cut, they are totally worth it in my book. They literally taste like candy! Mmm, so good.


Cozy Orange Women’s Apparel

Cozy Orange recently reached out to me and offered to send me one of their outfits from their summer line. I had never heard of the company before, but after looking around on their website a bit, I realized that there was a ton of cute stuff. I was even more impressed once I received my outfit to wear.

I got the Glow Maternity Tank (yes, they have a few maternity options too!) and the Aquarius Leggings in black, both of which are extremely comfortable. I could see myself wearing both of these pieces for workouts or lounging around the house or running errands – it’s such a versatile look!

Cozy Orange would also like to offer you all a 20% off discount! All you have to do is use the code myfoodandcozy at checkout. The code is valid until July 14th. Happy shopping! There are some adorable pieces!

Alright well, I have one final BODYPUMP® class to teach this morning, a few last minute things to pack up, and then we’re outta here! I’m not sure how much I’ll be around next week so I’ll see ya when I see ya!

Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends! Be safe and have a wonderful holiday weekend.
