The Friday Faves | Week 3

Friday, January 18, 2019

Another week down in 2019.
At the moment I am struggling.
Do you ever have those days that you have so much to say,
but at the same time you better just not say anything?
That has been today, last week, the last month for me.
It's getting old.
Despite that feeling, I am just going to power through like I have been doing.
At least for now.

Now onto some happy things ;)

Monday on the blog and over at The Blended Blog I shared two ladies that I think are killin' it in the small business world.

I would love for you to give them some love as well!
Head here and here to check out those posts :)

Wednesday I shared some new active wear from Old Navy I recently picked up.

And I just ordered a few more active wear items from Amazon that should be arriving next week.
I'll make sure to share my thoughts when they arrive :)

The rest of my post today I would like to share a couple bloggers/Instagram ladies that I just love!

Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine is all around amazing.

I'm sure I'm late to the game, but if you don't follow her you totally should.
I absolutely love the outfits she puts together, and the recipes she shares make my mouth water!
For example...doesn't this soup sound so good!
It is perfect for this winter storm we are supposed to get this weekend!

Amy at A Cup Full of Sass shares fashion and food too!

Notice a theme here?
Basically I am a happy camper when I can "shop" for everything all at one place. lol!
Amy shows some great recipes that are good for the Faster Way to Fat Loss program.
I started following her a long time ago when she would review her Stitch Fix boxes.

What other bloggers/Instagram ladies should I be following?

And that's all for today folks!
Hope you all had a great week and are ready for the weekend!

Linking up with The Blended Blog, Andrea, Narci & Erika today :)

Shape It Up | Style Link Up

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

It's the beginning of a new year, so that can only mean one thing...
Bring on all the workout clothes!
I kid, kind of.
Every store under the sun that offers workout apparel seems to run deals right after Christmas and into the new year.
They all know that most everyone has goals of being healthier and working out.
How long that lasts is up to you.
So if you score some new gear to help get you in shape and then decide to use it as lounge wear I'm not gonna judge you.

I kind sound like Planet Fitness 😜

I jumped on the bandwagon this year and ordered some new items to help me not look like a slob, not wear my pj's while I workout at home, to feel better about myself during my workouts 😉

I did order those leggings that every blogger under the sun seems to be raving about these days from Amazon, but they don't arrive until tomorrow.

I went with the cropped version and they were only $20, so I will keep you posted if they turnout to be a good buy.

My new goodies from Old Navy did arrive, so that is what I am sharing today.
Back story...I don't buy workout clothes.
I typically just wear a pair of shorts of some kind and tank or tee to workout.
About 6 years ago I actually starting leaving the house to workout at a class and headed to Old Navy to find a few items that were more appropriate.
They didn't disappoint.
Actually, I still have those couple pairs of capri compression leggings, tanks and sports bras.
They are all still in great shape after wearing them for years.

Fast forward to 2019...

I decided it was probably time to add a few more pairs of leggings to my wardrobe.
Side note: I do not like wearing leggings out of the house unless I am going to a workout class.
It is like wearing pj's or sweats out of the house to me.

First up are these High-Rise Color-Block Compression leggings in carbon currently $19, paired with this Full-Zip Compression Jacket in blackjack currently $25.

I love the fit of these, but the regular length leggings are a bit long for my taste :/
Since I scored them on sale for less than $10 I'm willing to hang on to them.
And I grabbed this jacket for under $20!
I love the zip pockets and thumb holes on the sleeves :)

Next up are these 7/8 length High-Rise Elevate Color-Blocked Compression leggings in medium gray currently $15.

The fit, the colors, the length = Perfect!
I would almost think about leaving the house in these 😉
I scored these for under $10 as well!

My last pair I tried were the Mid-Rise Side-Mesh Compression leggings in black currently $19.

Yes, those are the tags you see in these pictures.
I opened up the package and immediately tried them on!

These cropped leggings were also under $10 when I placed my order.
These are the exact same ones I bought 6 years ago!
The only addition is the sides have a little mesh detail.
I'm actually wearing them right now since I am about to get my workout in 😊💪

Grab all these items online and score an extra 20% off with code MORE.
Spend $75 or more and you get 30% off with that same code!
Sale ends at 11:59pm PT on 1/16/19!
Hurry and place your order today!

*This post is in no way sponsored. 
I just enjoy the active wear that Old Navy offers, and wanted to save the goodness with you!*

Where do you buy your workout gear from?
What types of workout gear do you gravitate to?
What types of workouts do you enjoy?

Head over to see what Shelly @ The Queen In Between is sharing on her blog as well as The Blended Blog!
