Add These to Your List!

Linking up with Lauren and Bre again to talk about some more things I think you should check out! I have had so much fun saving things for this link up every month, and seeing what everyone else is loving. I still keep my book reccomendations for the Show Us Your Books link up though, so you wont see any of that here.


Have you tried the Chobani Flips? I have gushed about the Key Lime Crumbles one for at least a year or two now. But Target started carrying a ton  more flavors. My new favorites are Smores and Coffee Brownie Bliss!!! SO GOOD!


This Revlon Juice Peach Kiss Balm is so fun. First of all, it is under $5. It smells amazing!!!!!! And it gives the slightest sheer color and makes my lips feel super soft. It doesn’t last all day or anything, but I wasn’t expecting it to. If I am wearing this and my Too Faced Peach palette shadows, I smell peaches all day and I love it.

This coconut oil OGX shower gel smells sooooooo good and has me dreaming of the beach! I don’t like to pay a lot of shower gels, so I grab fun stuff I see at Target. I am still loving my Soap and Glory one I shared last month too. I just like to switch it up with a few options because I get bored.

Have you heard of Riverdale? It is based on the characters from the Archie comics. I never really read the comics growing up, but I knew the characters names and stuff. The first episode or two I was like ehhhh I dont know. But now? I am hooked. It freaking sucks you right on in to their messed up world.

Also, Season 3 of Grace and Frankie is here!!!! YAY!!!! I love this show. And this picture pretty much sums up the season so far…

Think Dirty is an app where you can scan beauty and body products in your home and see how natural or harmful they are to you. Which is what led me to pull the trigger on the baby items below. I have been scanning allllll the things in our house and when I am out at the store. It’s not 100% because some products (like the Aveeno baby lotion) weren’t on it. But when something isn’t on there, you can take a picture of the front and back of the item and get them to add it.


–I know that Johnson and Johnson isn’t known for the best ingredients in their products. My mom used that stuff on Tracy and I growing up and we turned out ok. And the smell!! Straight up baby. It’s what the hospital used on Zoe when she was there, and what I had on hand when I brought her home. Truth is? Zoe’s skin is still pretty dry. It’s so soft, but I have to lotion her up quite often. I picked up Shea Moisture Honey Lavender Soothing Shampoo/Body Wash and Honest Lavender Face and Body Lotion this past week and YES!!!! I can actually see a difference already. And she still smells amazing and scrumptious, as babies do. I feel so much better using these products on her instead.

Think Dirty says Johnson and Johnson is a 9 (10 is the worst) and this particular Shea Moisture and Honest product are both a 3.

So have you tried any of this? What do you suggest I add to my list?

    Those yogurt flips are absolutely delicious! The key lime is my favorite but I had a new one I had not had before yesterday which was cinnamon bun, it had little Candied pecans in it and shortbread and was delicious! You always bring us some great new products to try, I cannot wait to go buy that kiss balm and some of that coconut oil shower gel! I hope it makes me smile like the beach, ha ha!

    I am obsessed with Chobani flips! I also started out with the key lime years ago but now that they have new flavors, I LOVE the salted caramel one. I got my coworker hooked on them too – he’s had a s’mores one sitting in the fridge for like a week and I swear he is leaving it there just to taunt me!

  • Reply Lauren March 28, 2017 at 8:15 am

    I love the Chobani flips except I want to eat them for breakfast and not for a snack. I like the chocolate strawberry one! I’m adding that lip stuff to my list for sure. And maybe the body wash, unless it’s suuuuper coconutty. Now I feel a Target run coming on… Thanks for linking up!

    Think Dirty sounds awesome! Easy peasy.

    Kayla loves Chobanis; she eats them for snack. I wish I could give them to her for school snack but there’s no place to keep them cool.

  • Reply Carly March 28, 2017 at 9:23 am

    Yesss the flips are the only way I can eat greek yogurt, I always stock up on the peanut butter one when I see them on sale. That lip balm sounds amazing, I love anything peach flavored. And I’m SO glad Riverdale is finally back this week, I was so sad when I checked my DVR the last two weeks and there wasn’t a new episode.

  • Reply Brittany Pines March 28, 2017 at 9:40 am

    The Think Dirty sounds awesome…and probably terrifying.

  • Reply Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman March 28, 2017 at 10:01 am

    I love the flips but every time I eat yogurt I get congested. Ugh… I miss it though. The Key Lime is my favorite! I used Johnson’s Lavender Wash for all of my babies, still love the smell. I mean it’s such a short time use and it’s not like they are ingesting it or anything lol.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo March 28, 2017 at 10:04 am

    I didnt know that that was a body wash – I thought it was shampoo. I need to find that!!!!
    I love Riverdale… its so corny but I love it. I think it’s going to fill my Vampire Diaries void.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 28, 2017 at 10:45 am

    I love those Chobani flips so much, but I haven’t bought them in a while. I’m thinking that we need to try and get them at the grocery store more often so I can have a lighter and healthier snack! That Think Dirty app sounds amazing! You really do forget about all the random things that they put into products.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm March 28, 2017 at 11:18 am

    I love the Chobani flips. I’m a little burnt out on yogurt right now, but I do like those ones. I need to try the s’mores one!

  • Reply Sierra March 28, 2017 at 11:19 am

    I need to try those flips! The smores one sounds so good! I wish I got into more shows. The only thing that I was really keeping up with was This is Us.

    Think Dirty is fantastic 🙂 Also, we use OGX hair stuff but maybe we’ll check out the shower gel. K uses Axe but they’re not cruelty-free so I need to find an alternative for him 😉

  • Reply kristen March 28, 2017 at 3:19 pm

    we used to have something similar to the chobani things, called yogos.. but it’s like chocolate and chocolate chips/m&ms haha. i am not a yoghurt fan at all.
    i keep hearing about Riverdale, i will add that to my ‘to watch’ list. i just started watching beauty and the beast? i think? it’s got that girl from smallville. i watched 7 episodes last night hahahahaa. kc is out of town hence the bad tv.
    think dirty sounds super interesting. baby stuff is so scary to me, like you said – we turned out okay even though our parents used that stuff on us (although i’m sure we’ll all get cancer one day, but i drink diet coke and do all sorts of other bad things) but it’s just so hard to do something you know is bad or wrong once you know it, you know? lots of knows. especially when a helpless baby is involved. not the same, but kind of, but with my cats. i am responsible for them, they can’t choose their own food or litter so i feel like such an ass if i knowingly choose anything but the best for them. especially if it can actually hurt them, you know? gosh why am i so sappy today.

    I DL’d the CW app to watch Riverdale but haven’t started it yet. I’ve been watching Gilmore Girls. I love adding things to my yogurt and I’ve almost completely switched to the plain kind that’s gross but not full of sugar. That’s really on the days I say no to M&M’s it’s all about balance, lol. Yes, my little sis’ BFF is having a baby this Summer and I am buying her all things that aren’t the norm but are healthy. She’s also not find out the gender so I can’t be all pink or blue with the clothes yet.

    The s’mores yogurt sounds good, I am going to look for that.

    Oh I need to try that Revlon balm – looks amazing!!!


  • Reply Bre March 28, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    I need to binge Grace and Frankie. Netflix hasn’t let me down on series and with there being 3 seasons I can keep myself busy for like 3 weeks lol. Till Kimmy Schmidt comes back anyway.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 28, 2017 at 10:11 pm

    I love those Chobani snacks but haven’t tried them all. The coconut oil body wash sounds lovely. I will need to scope that one out next time I’m at Target or Ulta. The price is really reasonable.

  • Reply texerinsydney March 29, 2017 at 4:34 am

    I downloaded the “think dirty” app based on a blogger’s recommendation, but I gotta be honest, I haven’t used it yet. Oops!
    I’m so glad to see Lily Tomlin is back on television. I used to love her.

    Those Chobani flips are amazing. They had a pumpkin spice flavor in the fall and it was so good. I need to check out that body wash !

      Lavender is pretty common here in the hot dry south of australia where I live! But have never considered actually eating it – will look forward to trying this in lavender season in OZ! Cheers, Marionx

      Hola, new reader. (from La Mia Vita) I feel for you. My BF has broken his back AND his neck riding since we've been together. (among many other, less horrifyingly scary, injuries) But it's what they love!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista March 29, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    I need to download that app! We’ve used exclusively Babyganics and Honest Company products on Serena after hearing nasty things about Johnson & Johnson baby products. I heard a quote before she was born that really stuck with me: “Why put something so unnatural on something so new and natural?” Gamechanger! And those Chobani Flips are delish! The Coffee Break Bliss is my jam 😀

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says March 29, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    I recommended the OGX coconut oil body lotion in the first link up. Haven’t tried the body wash but it might be worth giving it a shot!

    I’m already in love with the Chobani flips, and the key lime is my favorite, too. Grace and Frankie are my gals, and I LOVE SheaMoisture. It’s been the one brand I keep coming back to for my hair products.

    So glad you’re loving the app! I buy less products lately but I still love checking anything new, just to be sure!
    Riverdale sounds super interesting, I never heard of it before. I’ll have to check that out.

    I watched the first episode of Riverdale and loved it. I just need to find a chance to watch TV again, although I’m probably better off without it. I just downloaded that app. I already have an obsession with buying “clean” products, so this is going to both make it easier and increase my obsession. We have a bunch of Johnson & Johnson and Aveeno baby hygiene products that we were gifted and we have been using them every now and then (she only gets a bath once a week so her skin doesn’t get too dry), but I worry about stuff like that. I switch back and forth between natural products and less natural for myself sometimes but I think I’m going to stick with the natural stuff more often. I don’t trust what’s in the other stuff! We do have some Honest baby wash, so I think we might start using that instead for Ellie. And yummm s’mores flip.. need to check that out.

    The Frankie show has been on my list forever.
