Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: DJ Snake & Aluna George You Know You Like This. This song has the weirdest freaking video ever with the ape and what not, but the song is awesome and I like to run to it. I know the video has a deeper meaning, but I like to make the joke “no one knows the struggle of the ape.”

Favorite Delivery: My Sephora package arrived! I had run out of foundation and am going back to an old friend, Make Up Forever. I also grabbed the Bare Minerals Blemish Therapy, my free NARS birthday gift and I received a few other free samples! I will let you know my thoughts on all of it soon!


Favorite Product Find: Piper Wai natural deodorant. I have been looking at natural deodorants for awhile. I have become increasingly paranoid at all the toxins I come in contact with on a daily basis. The natural deodorants at places like Target you just cant trust. Or at least, I can’t. I’ve tried.

You want the real life? I am a sweater. I am from the north and I have chosen to live in the south where temperatures make you fully aware that hell really does exist and we are living in it. My northern blood hates to get hot, and it doesn’t take much for me to feel like I am dying. So when Amanda shared this deodorant I immediately emailed her and asked to give me the real 411 on it.

While the paste is a bit weird to apply, I was surprised at how quickly it vanished in to my skin and how I was instantly ready to get dressed. The scent is a clean smell, and honestly could go for a guy or girl. You use a small pea size amount, so it looks like the container will last awhile. It has held up during my work outs this week and I am impressed.

Pay no attention to my nail polish. I had just gotten done scrubbing the shit out of my nails after doing super muddy yard work and had chipped off a lot of my polish.


 Favorite Beauty Hack: I received the Sally Hansen VoxBox from Influenster a few weeks ago and I have to say, I am really liking the Airbrush Legs! I haven’t been to the beach since July 4th and so I am turning in to my pale self again. Also, my legs have some imperfections with scars from various cuts and bruises from being a klutz and most recently I have about 15 fire ant bites on my ankles from cutting grass. It is still hot as crap outside, so I am wearing dresses all of the time. I love the fact that I can rub this stuff on as part of my hair and make up routine in the morning before I get dressed to give it time to dry. Then I am out with perfectly even toned legs with a splash of color that is believable. Also, you can totally wash this stuff off with soap and water so no harm no foul.


Favorite Recipe: I made this Korean Grilled Chicken Wednesday night. I followed the recipe perfectly with the exception of cooking it on the foreman instead of a grill. It was delicious!!! The green beans were bathed in some olive oil, Parmesan cheese and garlic salt and cooked for 15 minutes at 425 degrees.

–What kind of Haute Dog are you? I took this quiz and got Chow Chow. That is the last dog I would expect to be. But look at the description:

You are dependable and intelligent. You don’t take life too seriously and cherish the time you get to spend alone. You’d prefer to hang out with a small group rather than partying until 4 a.m., and nothing compares to an alarm-free nap on a rainy day.

Sounds about right….

    I can’t with those lists, especially knowing that I theoretically could have a kid that age. It makes me feel ridiculously old.

    And LOLOLOLOLOL at that Toys R Us ad!!!

  • Reply Darcy August 28, 2015 at 10:41 am

    I always get so excited when a sephora package shows up! I also really like the birthday gift they ahd this year1

      Thanks for taking the time to talk about this, I feel strongly about it and love knowing more on this topic. If feasible, as you gain expertise, would you thoughts updating your weblog with a lot more facts? It is extremely useful for me.VA:F [16pa5_908] wait…VA:F [1.6.5_908](from 0 votes)

    We’ve already discussed the deodorant more than two people probably should so I’ll just say I’m probably copying your green bean recipe next week and have a good weekend!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis August 28, 2015 at 11:22 am

    All the funnies had me cracking up! Glad you like the airbrush lotion as well. I’d also love to try the Korean chicken recipe. So glad it’s Friday!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo August 28, 2015 at 11:23 am

    oops on the advertising wording 🙂

    You’ll have to do a blog post in a few weeks if you like the natural deodorant. I’m so paranoid about things like that … read all the things that says it causes breast cancer. Yikes!

  • Reply Katie MacDonald August 28, 2015 at 11:39 am

    AHHHH! I can’t believe all of those “kids graduating in 2019” things..I honestly never thought about the floppy disc icon in Word. Hilarious. Sephora is my downfall. I tease myself by seeing what I can put in my cart for $200 and then promptly close out the website. Sigh. I also got Chow Chow…fits me too, but would never predict that. Why do they get labeled as an aggressive dog if they are basically introverts who want to sleep and chill? Have a great weekend!!

  • Reply kristen August 28, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    oooh that chicken looks great!
    i used the sally hansen stuff recently, the spray though. i should have bought the lotion!
    totally want to try that deodorant.

  • Reply Laura August 28, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    Yuuuum to that chicken recipe!! Will have to try that out! And I’ve always wondered about that Sally Hensen leg stuff, but since it’s got your stamp of approval, I may try it out. That ad should read more like $600000000.

  • Reply Mattie August 28, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Weird, I was literally JUST looking at the Sally Hansen campaign. But for me it says I have to buy the full sized product with the coupon…but the fine print says, “Make sure to disclose that you got this for free.” Uhh, $2 off is not free!!! Do I just have to pay since it’s my first Influenster campaign? So confused.

    That pull out and save thing KILLED me. Hahaha.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 28, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    That chicken looks amazing! And yay for Sephora packages with free birthday goodies 😀

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

    Since you LOL’ed at the Target ad:

  • Reply Brittany August 28, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    I’m interested in trying that deodorant. I really try to use natural products but the Tom’s brand just hasn’t been cutting it for me

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 28, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    What is this BareMinerals product?! Still breaking out over here. I’m interested in natural deodorants, too. I’m glad to know this held up because I’m a sweater, too. I love your description- it’s proof hell exists! Hahaha! Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Alyssa @ Alyssa with an A August 28, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Omg, that TGIF image is everything! This post definitely brought a chuckle or two.. there’s always a good reason for champagne! Happy Friday, girl!

  • Reply alyssa August 29, 2015 at 3:06 pm

    Hahahha the baby in the pizza meme is way too funny! Thanks for all the funnies, I needed them 😉 Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Kerry August 30, 2015 at 10:03 pm

    That chicken sounds really good. I use the clinical protection deodorant because I am totally always hot.

  • Reply Angela August 30, 2015 at 11:37 pm

    That chicken looks fantastic! The meme about “When Your Waiting for Pizza” made me laugh. So funny! I hope you’re having a great weekend.

  • Reply bri @ deliciously active August 31, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    I’ve always been interested in natural deodorant but, like you, I workout and am afraid they won’t hold up. Where do you find this one?
