Friday Favorites


It’s Friday again!!  That means I’m working my girls…Andrea and Narci to share our Friday Favorites.  This week I’m sharing a hot random mess of things.

Okay, I know I’ve professed my love for these before but it’s happening again.  This summer I thought I’d save some money and I purchased a big box of the Sam’s brand of a scent booster.  I don’t remember the name, but they were a capsule or pod?  Anyway, I never noticed a great smell while I was doing laundry or anything.  I ran out this week and started using the Unstopables again.  WOW!!!  I can tell a huge difference!  I’m happily doing laundry again because it smells so good!!!  

I feel like this is a secret I’m sharing with the world!  haha!  It’s no secret I have nasty dry cracked hands and feet.  My hands get crazy bad in the winter and my heels get bad during summer (I think from swimming).  Anyway, during my last pedicure my lady suggested this lotion.  I immediately ordered some from Amazon.  I think it was $15.  SO WORTH IT!!!  I should start buying it in bulk!  If you get cracked heels, you NEED this!  I’ve been putting it on every night and my heels have never been smoother.  She told me to use it daily (don’t just wait to get cracked skin before you use it).  Seriously…it’s the best thing I’ve ever used on my heels/hands.

I saw this on Pinterest and must know.  Has anyone ever tried this and does it REALLY work?  I’m a BIG believer in Crest White Strips, but this sounds SO easy and SO affordable!!  PLEASE let us all know if you’ve given this a shot AND how it worked for you.  I have a feeling I’ll be giving it a try this weekend.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  🙂

I’ve had a couple of you girls e-mail me that you want to try some Rodan and Fields products, but you don’t want to purchase a regimen.  Here are some options if you want some great skin care options other than a regimen.  E-mail me if you want to learn more.

And…just for fun a great before/after!  I LOVE seeing fabulous results!!  We have regimens for every type of skin issue you may be having….acne, sun spots, fine lines, or sensitive skin.  These are results from our Reverse line.  AMAZING!!  

This month if you sign up as a Preferred Customer, you’ll receive an entry in my Multi-Function Eye Cream drawing.  Current PC customers will receive an entry and referring a new customer gets you an entry as well!

Do you guys have this game??  I think it was one of those $2.00 games on Black Friday that I saw everyone throwing in their cart.  I felt like I needed one too PLUS I was going on just a couple hours of sleep.  People could have talked me into ANYTHING!!  But…we LOVE it!!!  The box says “For ages 7 and up”….but my kiddos totally get it.  We’ve been playing since Christmas and it is hysterical!!!  We definitely have to give them more clues, but seriously….such a fun game!!

Hope you guys have a GREAT week!!  We’re enjoying our last full week of SUMMER!!

Don’t forget…you should join us!!  Blog your favorite ANYTHING…picture, quote, book, or your favorite hot random mess too.  🙂  Link up with us so we can all check it out!  Thanks so much, Ladies!!

    I'm going to sound like a total weirdo….to avoid whitening strips, we've used charcoal (that comes in pills at the health food store). You'll feel like the Beverly Hillbillies, but it works. Google or look on pinterest. We have Hedbanz. I'm glad we can move past Chutes and Ladders…. There is an adult version now. Hopefully, we won't own it. 🙂

    I recently saw the same teeth whitening thing on Pinterest and I asked my brother in law (who's a dentist) and my sister (who's a hygienist) and they told me to absolutely NOT do it! They said the hydrogen peroxide shreds your gums and although your teeth may look a shade whiter, you're being handed a bucket of other oral problems. She said they've seen horrible cases come in when people have tried this SMS most times nothing has even changed in their coloring!! Save yourself the headache of ruining your mouth and just stick with Crest strips!!

    I've tried the peroxide and baking soda…actually heard about this when I was a teenager pre-colgate strips! I do think it works over time but the key would be consistency for sure.

    Another amazing product for cracked heels is origins reinventing the heel! It's amazing! A tad pricier but last a long time!

    Ive tried the pinterest whitening and it was too harsh on my gums. I have done crest white strips and they r ok. A dentist I know said to brush with sensodyne for a week to help with the sensitivity that whitening can cause on your teeth. As for the downy unstoppables I felt that it really didn't scent my laundry. How much r u using and r u doing large loads of laundry?

    I've never done that whitening trick but I got this AMAZING toothpaste from my dentist that works SO good! They sell it on Amazon too!


    I've also used this overnight several times & it works REALLY well but my teeth are extra sensitive for a couple of days afterwards.

    I just use it in these kinda trays:

    Opalescence is a great brand!
