Friday Favorites #30: Week of 3/28

Good Morninggg and Happy Friday!

Holy wow, today marks the thirtieth week of Friday Favorites here on the blog! (<- What? How?)

After doing them consistently for a few months, I started noticing how popular they were becoming in the blogosphere and decided to make it a link-up party for anyone and everyone to join in on at eight weeks in. Thanks to you all, not only have I kept it going, but I look forward to hosting it every week more than you know. You guys are seriously the best! (Woo hoo!)

All right, before things get rowdy, let’s kick start the weekend with this week’s edition of #FFavorites. Don’t forget to tell me all about what you have been loving in the comments section too!

I found this gem in the greeting cards aisle at the grocery store.

I couldn’t help but to bring it home, and have been enjoying seeing these words of wisdom every time I enter the kitchen.

• Yes To product haul

About a month ago, I received a ridiculously large box of products from my friends over at Yes To. (Check out my reviews here and here!)

This week, I have been loving:

- Yes To Blueberries Deep Wrinkle Night Cream + Daily Facial SPF Moisturizer

- Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes + Gentle Milk Cleanser

- Yes To Carrots Daily Cream Facial Cleanser

- Yes To Grapefruit Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream

- Pomegranate + Blueberry Lip Balm

Also, (I guess I am a little late to the share party here… but) March is National Women’s History Month! To celebrate, Yes To created the March Hashtag Project to inspire, empower, and get women to say YES more.

(Check out this video for more info… you might even see a cameo by yours truly pop up around the :24 mark!)

Love it! #YESTOMOVEMENT

• egg, English muffin + jelly breakfast sandwiches

I go through phases with English muffins, and I have definitely been “on” with them lately. At least three times this week, I enjoyed the following breakfast that takes about five minutes to make.

Egg whites + organic berry preserves on a whole wheat English muffin.

Yummm!

• Reebok outerwear

I shared a great Reebok discount with you last Friday. I also took advantage of it myself and finally used up some gift cards I have been hoarding.

I went out on a limb and ordered up in size on the zip up, and ordered a size down on the pull over. Well, the zip up is for sure a size too big and the pull over fits snug. It looks like I will be doing some exchanges on those two. Bummer!

I did, however, already wear the dance capri to practice last night and received a ton of compliments. They are so soft and unbelievably comfy!

How I Scrunch + Tight Curl My Hair Video Tutorial

I have been rockin’ this hairstyle like nobody’s business lately! In case you missed it, I finally shared my ways with the diffuser and wand yesterday.

(By the way, I really have fun putting these little tutorials together. Have a request? Send it on over via the comments section or email!)

Keep an eye out for Part II of this one, as I am currently working on another to show you how to make this hairstyle last at least a few days. (Don’t judge… just accept it and move on.) ;)

Arm & Hammer plus Oxi Clean Pet Stain & Odor Remover

This might sound lame, but I recently got really excited over this stain and odor remover.

I used it to clean up a couple of pet messes (<- our house was kind of a zoo over the weekend) and Scott actually complimented how good the house smelled that day. It did a fantastic job of removing the stain and left the house smelling fresh as ever!

• Pistons vs. Heat Game

Tonight our Pistons take on the Miami Heat, and it is one of the few games of the season that is totally sold out!

I am pumped to sit on the sidelines and also to see the Bad Boys – 1989 NBA Championship (Pistons!) Team – reunite during halftime. It should be an absolute blast!

• Florida for the weekend

Directly after the game, I will be getting ready to fly down south for the weekend. My friend and college roommate, Katie, is getting married and I am so excited to sneak away for a couple days and celebrate with my friends!

Katies Bachelorette

Yup, I guess you could say I am already in a pretty amazing mood!

Reebok True Studio Slippers Review

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok.

I have a feeling a lot of you were expecting to see this post pop up sooner than later. If you have been following the blog over the past few weeks, you have probably seen a handful of mentions and pictures including these.

Reebok Studio Barre Slipper

Earlier this month, I was sent a (colorful and fun!) pair of Reebok True Studio Slippers to review as part of a FitFluential campaign.

They are extremely lightweight and comfortable shoes made for yoga and barre classes with the purpose of providing a barefoot feel with extra grip.

Before even trying them on, I had a hunch that they would feel very similar to a ballet slipper, and would allow me to point and flex my feet with mobility and ease. I was right.

Basically, they are like ballet slippers, only more versatile, thanks to the Concona woven coconut fiber material and grippies on the bottom.

If you have ever been to a barre studio, then you have probably seen a pair of barre or yoga socks before. The purpose of these is the same: to create an easy way to balance and hold positions while providing an anti-slip grip on the floor.

Before seeing these slippers appear on the Reebok website, I had only heard of barre socks. Never shoes.

On my last visit to Orlando, I took a barre class and noticed some really neat new features and styles of barre socks. There are tons of them out there and now some even include mesh and sparkles as part of the design.

Reebok Studio Slippers review

While this slipper doesn’t have either of those features, it does include:

• light upper materials with an elastic topline (So comfy!)

• a low-profile for a grounded fit (Great mobility!)

• coconut fiber lining for natural evaporative cooling and odor resistance

• silicon printed outside grip for traction and slippage prevention

• ultra feminine style and sleek design (not to mention fun colors!)

Since receiving them a few weeks ago, I have already tested them out a handful of times. My first time wearing them was in a barre class with Julie and Gina in New York!

(Gina and I had matching cool breeze/fluorange cloud prints and Julie sported a grey/lemon zest combo.)

We all broke them out again the next day at the Reebok Skyscape Launch Party for an in-person Ballet Beautiful workout with Mary Helen Bowers!

Reebok Skyscape Ballet Beautiful Class

The class and style of workout was amazing, and absolutely perfect for these type of slippers. In fact, since my arrival back home, I have already completed two more Ballet Beautiful workouts in my basement via Amazon Prime online streaming.

While this fitness slipper is designed primarily for barre and yoga, I can’t help but to want to turn to them for other things as well. I may be alone here, but I don’t always feel like wearing shoes when completing workouts at-home. I end up in socks on my carpet most of the time, and I think these might just be the perfect in-between during HIIT, kick boxing, and Tabatas.

Don’t take my word on that, as it was just a thought. If I do end up wearing them for anything similar to what I just mentioned, I will be sure to check back in with how it went!

Just as a heads up, I think these slippers run a bit on the small side. I normally wear anywhere between a 7 and a 7.5 street shoe size, but all of my Reebok sneakers arrive in size 7 with a great fit. These, however, I think I would feel more comfortable in the half size up.

Used on variety of workouts or not, these slippers make me happy, and I love the ballet slipper feel that takes me right back to ballet class on wood floors.

While I do like wearing barre socks, I think the extra money spent on a slipper would be worth the investment if you frequent a studio.

They retail for $59.99 and you can purchase them online or at any Reebok FitHub store.

Thanks, Reebok, for always keeping me up to date on the latest studio wear!

Question of the Afternoon

• Do you take barre or yoga classes? If so, do you prefer to go barefoot or wear (regular or grip) socks?
