Friday Favorites – January edition

Read on to see what I’ve been loving this month!

Cocokind Organic Skincare 


My manager bought this sampler kit for me for Christmas and when I opened it, I was like, are we best friends!? I’ve been wanting to try this product for a while and it does not disappoint. I don’t use it everyday. I don’t always use all of the products at one time. But when I do use it, bliss. Every time.

On New Years Day, I started my morning by doing the whole regimen. My skin felt so clean and soft after. I don’t have the time It’s not a priority for me to do a whole skincare circuit every night (a simple face scrub in the shower usually works for me). That being said, I do find myself reaching for the cocokind moisturizer almost everyday.

Somebody Feed Phil

Who has watched this on Netflix? It’s my current binge. The producer of Everybody Loves Raymon – Phil – travels to different parts of the world trying local cuisine. …I know, I know, this kind of thing has been done a million times but, for some reason, I really like this show. (Although, sometimes I find Phil a little annoying… hah)

One of the episodes is in New Orleans, where I recently booked a ticket to for a bachelorette party in June. Exciting!

Another good one was in Vietnam. Mike and I are throwing around honeymoon ideas and when he mentioned Vietnam, it was a hard no. “Was” being the operative word… After watching the episode in Ho Chi Minh (and reading a few of my future sister in law’s blog posts on visiting Vietnam), I’m thinking, maybe… Stay tuned. 😉

Natural deodorant

THIS IS LIFE CHANGING. I’ve been looking for a natural deodorant that actually works for years and I finally found it. The only weird/kind of inconvenient thing about it is that you have to apply it by scoping the paste on your fingers, rolling it around to semi-liquify the deodorant, and then spread it under your armpits. It’s a intimate thing to do first thing in the morning when you’re half asleep…


New to us/old blender 


My mom and stepdad were getting rid of their Breville blender and asked if Mike and I wanted it. Um, yes! There’s a joke that Mike’s family loves any Breville (between us and them, we must be racking in like, 15 appliances) but I understand why. They’re such good products. Mike and I have their tea maker, espresso machine, toaster oven, and now, a blender!

Side note: I didn’t know what my mom was talking about until she brought it to my house. I instantly remembered it from my illegal margaritas when the ‘rents were out of town smoothie making days when I lived at home. Aside from it being a BREVILLE, I love that the jug (?) is stainless steel vs. plastic or glass. Everything stays so cold! …Perfect for a marg. 😉

All of the Breville

This coffee cup

Speaking of my mama llama, she got me this “A” cup for Christmas and it quickly became my favorite. It fits perfectly under my (#breville) espresso maker for those morning cups of java and I love anything with an A on it.


Buddha Bowl Foods

I went to visit my friend, Lauren, for lunch at Facebook last week and looted a bag of Himalayan Pink Salt Popcorn from Buddha Bowl Foods. Omg, love! I hope they sell this at Whole Foods or … I’m going to need her to start snagging bags. 😉
