It’s time once again for my Friday Favorites! Can’t believe I am only on #8, seems like I started this endeavor long ago!
1.|| Favorite Commercial: Ever see a commercial that makes you laugh out loud at the most unexpected things? That’s how I feel about this Valspar Paint commercial. Take a look!
2.|| Favorite Dance Break: You may have seen this awesome video floating around social media this week, or an amazing dance troop at the VIBE competition, but did you know that they didn’t win first place? Take a moment and watch the awesome performances of both the 2nd place and 1st place teams! Which one did you like more? I personally found myself smiling more through the 2nd place performance, but loved both of them!
3.|| Favorite DIY Jewelry Project: I really have no idea what came over me this week, but I have had an urge to make jewelry. Necklace #1 first caught my attention, which set off a firestorm of DIY jewelry pins on my Pinterest account this week. Now I don’t know where to begin. Do you have a favorite? Which one should I make first?
You can find all of thee projects on my Pinterest, pinned this week!
4.|| Favorite DIY Project Inspiration: As I was exploring various DIY websites, I came across an idea for super cute Polka Dot Glasses from Squirrelly Minds. These remind me of those super expensive Copper Moscow Mule Mugs, but a dainty girly one and a manly-ish one on the super inexpensive level. I made some painted glasses wine glasses for my mom and sister last year, and these are on my list of awesome projects to work on when I get back to Australia.
5.|| Favorite Yoga Mat: Well pretty self explanatory here. I was shopping during the sales and talking to the store clerk at The Gap, who mentioned I should include more fitness on my blog (no-she had never read it before, I’m not that well known), but I was telling her all about it as we were chatting about yoga and pilates.
Anyway, kind of off subject there, but I wanted to share with you this great yoga mat from Manduka. This is the Limited Edition Black Truth Pro Mat and is perfect for yoga, pilates, barre workouts, or whatever mat workout you fancy. This mat is uses a thicker foam than other yoga mats, and has non slip technology making it perfect for hot yoga too! I haven’t even mentioned the lifetime warrenty that comes with the mat as well! Can’t go wrong with a Manduka product!
Speaking of working out, today I started my new pool workouts. When I came back to America I didn’t bring sneakers because I really wanted to save room in my suitcase. No sneakers means no workouts. Uh oh! After getting permission from our good family friends to use their pool to swim laps, my mom recalled I still had a gym membership to a local gym with pool. Yesterday I purchased a new swimsuit and goggles, and hit the pool this morning. The first day was a success and I plan on swimming 3-4 times a week. I’ll update you later this summer with how those workouts are going.
The store clerk I met at The Gap, and the success of recent fashion posts on my blog have inspired me to set a goal to highlight a different fashion segment or trend each week, like fitness fashion, current trends, etc., in addition to my Golden Tote posts, What I Wore, and anytime I do a big shopping haul. That’s a lot of fashion, but don’t worry, I’m going to get more recipe posts in too, promise!
That’s all for today.
