With the chaos and rush of the holiday season behind us, it’s time to start back up with my Friday Favorites! 🙂
My running partner is out with an injury so I was solo on a 10-mile run this morning. Thankfully I had some great new music and the ocean to run along and while 90% of the US seems to be in a freeze out I am not complaining. I grew up on the east coast and I remember those cold snowy days and as much as the snow is beautiful, living in it is a whole other story. Stay warm everyone!
Time to just jump into my favorites of the week and yes, a few of them are some Christmas gifts that are turning out to be favorites. 🙂
MY FAVORITE hair dryer
Yes, a good hair dryer can be a game changer and this particular hair dryer by Harry Josh is just that! This was on my Christmas wish list and thankfully my husband came through. 🙂 The funny thing the week before Christmas our hair dryer started making a terrible noise so this was so meant to be!
It’s not cheap but it’s the closest thing to making my hair look like I got it professionally blown out! I figure I’ll save money by not paying to have my hair done as often and anything that makes it easier to blow dry my hair is worth it to me. 🙂
This dryer is super lightweight, my hair is smoother and no frizz and the best part it has reduced my dry time . . . WIN! It all makes sense that it won the Best of Beauty Award in 2014 and 2015!
MY FAVORITE Running Tights
Seriously the workout leggings from Old Navy are amazing and the price even better.! They are currently on sale for 40% or more off so now is the time to stock up.
I’ve been running in Old Navy leggings the last couple of weeks and they are awesome. A nice high waistband that never moves, they fit so well I never have to adjust or pull them up and trust me I have more expensive workout leggings that feel like they are falling down or I am tugging at the legs – it’s the worst! Old Navy has so many cute prints and colors and the fabric is super soft.
Here’s the thing I run/workout 5-6 days a week I don’t want to constantly be washing my workout clothes. For the price of a pair of Lululemon workout leggings, I can buy 4-5 Old Navy ones especially when they are on sale – no guilt shopping and quality workout pant.
All activewear is on sale at Old Navy and if you order online you get an additional 20% off and if you order 4 or more activewear pieces you get an additional 10% off!

MY FAVORITE Planner
I am a paper and pen gal so I love my yearly planner. Erin Condren is my all time favorite planner and at this time of year, one of my favorite things to do is to plan out my year or at least the next few months. I love using different color markers and setting some work, fitness and personal goals. It feels good to write things down, for me writing things down is what makes it stick!
For me, the Erin Condren Lifeplanner works great but I also just found a less expensive one called Create a Life Panner – it has similar features and is super cute.
Another hair favorite . . . I am sensing a theme! 🙂 The MoroccanOil hair mask is a great hydrating treat for your hair. You want to do this on a weekend when you have some extra time because you massage it into your hair after washing and then it sits on your hair for 10-15 minutes then you rinse. My hair thanked me as it came out super soft and so manageable.
My new favorite tv show on amazon prime
OMG, the best new show from Amazon Prime!!! I kept seeing ads for this show but had no idea what it was about and then I saw it is nominated for a couple of Golden Globe awards so I was curious. The quick synopsis is it’s about a NYC housewife who decides for a variety of reasons to become a stand-up comic in 1958! That’s the one sentence description that doesn’t do it justice – just watch it!!
I binged it this past week and I can’t say enough great things about it. There are so many shows out there and a lot of them are not so good so when you find a good one you need to share it with your friends! Enjoy!
So that’s a wrap for the week. We are off to a Laker game tonight with family and friends, soccer tournament tomorrow and off to the movies. Stay warm and cozy wherever you are this weekend and as always I would love to hear any favorites you have! 🙂
