Good morning, and a very Happy Friday to you!
I, for one, am extremely excited for this weekend. I don’t know what we are doing or where we are going, but I was told to take off of work through Tuesday and pack a bag to go out of town. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I’m so pumped!
Today is officially the last day of my twenties. I turn the big 3-0 at midnight tonight! Yeesh. It all seems pretty crazy, but I’m embracing it.
What do you say we kick off the party with this week’s edition of Friday Favorites?
This is the part of the week I take a look back to share new product finds, funny or informative articles, and a collection of things that made me smile. If you are a blogger, make sure to look for the blue Inlinkz button at the bottom and link up your own #FFavorites posts too!
Friday Favorites #86: Week of 4/24
• sleep aromatherapy pillow mist
I received this lavender vanilla pillow mist spray from the sleep line at Bath & Body Works as an early birthday gift and am completely obsessed. With just a quick spray as I turn in at night, I have been going from stressed to sleep within minutes.
The fresh spa scent is perfectly overwhelming, and it has an instant calming effect I urge anyone to experience for themselves. You won’t be disappointed!
• Koss FitClips earbuds
I first tried out these Koss FitClips as part of a review in 2013. The design was made by women, for women, and I honestly haven’t found a better earbud that fits and actually stays in my ear throughout the duration of my run since.
I love the cool colors they come in, and am thrilled they have held up through many, many runs thus far. I was also sent the FitBuds back in December 2013, which I liked too, but I eventually gave them to a friend to get more use out of them. I can’t get past the FitClips!
I introduced this brand of coconut water with whey (milk) protein isolate in my latest Vitamin Shoppe haul. I finally gave it a try after my workout on Wednesday and really liked it!
I am not the best at refueling with protein after a workout, but I’m always on top of the water. I love that this drink combines the protein I need with hydration. A full bottle is considered to be one serving, and is recommended to drink after a strenuous workout.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the coconut flakes, but they didn’t bother me at all. I’ll be sure to keep my eyes peeled for more bottles in the future!
• Unforgivable by Sean John
It had been ages since I updated my perfume collection. In need of a new scent, I came home with Unforgivable Woman by Sean John on a visit to the outlets over the weekend. Whoops.
The scent is anything but new, but it’s new to me and I already love it. What is currently your go-to perfume?

• new husband voodoo doll
I received this New Husband Voodoo Doll in an early birthday basket from friends last weekend, and I thought it was great!
Scott isn’t really a “new” husband, but he still got a kick out of it too. My favorite action has to be “Don’t squeeze my love-handles!”
I mean… nobody likes that, right?
• Birthday Cake Oreos
You guys. I went from not having Oreos for years to eating them constantly.
Have you seen this flavor yet?
Considering my birthday is tomorrow, I don’t even feel bad about it. And hey, did you guys know Oreos are accidentally vegan? True story. I’m not saying that makes it okay to eat an entire sleeve of them, I’m just sayin’.

• Friday funnies
I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t resist a fresh batch of Friday “punnies”…
And the animal of all puns…
Have a great weekend!
