Hi friends, and a Happy Friday to ya!
I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Not only is it extended an extra day to celebrate Memorial Day, but I have zero plans outside of a trip to the park (in hope of finding a beach) and a barbecue with friends on Sunday night. Woot!
Getting right to business, let’s move on to this week’s edition of Friday Favorites. As always, I invite you to share some things you have been loving at the bottom by utilizing the comments section and link up tool!
Friday Favorites #90: Week of 5/22
• Lorna Jane Active Living bracelets
This limited edition MOVE NOURISH BELIEVE (MNB) bracelet is not just a pretty accessory, it also inspires a happier, healthier, and more active world! I received the pink one back in October from my friends at Lorna Jane, and have been loving it paired with the black one sent to me separately just a month or so ago.
The MNB (Active Living) bracelet is a symbol of belief in an inspirational, active future. I wear mine with pride anytime I’m in activewear… which is pretty much every day.
If you are anywhere close to a Lorna Jane store, you can buy them for $4.95 or possibly even receive one for free with any in-store purchase. (As of right now) I can only find the pink one available for purchase online here.
• fresh fruit
From berries, apples, and grapes to clementines, watermelons, and mangoes, I can’t get enough of it lately.
Scott’s been on a huge fruit kick too, so there’s been a pretty impressive rotation going on in our refrigerator. I’ve been taking a lot of it to snack on at work, and I don’t hate on the natural sugar rush I get between appointments. Ahhhh, give me all the fruit!
• life quote magnet
This awesome quote popped up in a gift from friends a month or so ago. Isn’t is adorable?
It was purchased at Francesca’s, and I have been hooked on going into that boutique store to purchase gifts for friends over the past few weeks, too. I love their home and accessories collection!
• CHI hairdryer
I have been using CHI products since the first model of the straightener came out over ten years ago. I swear by them, and have mentioned the holiday hairdryer and straightener set I purchased a few years back on the blog before.
Since both my straightener and blow dryer broke around the same, I finally broke down and purchased a holiday set from Ulta. I got both for an amazing price ($75 each!) online on Black Friday, and it seems like there is usually a similar sale going on around bigger holidays. Keep an eye out for any CHI hairdryer sales this weekend!
I have the Ultra Chi Low EMF dryer (similar, similar), but have have owned a PRO series as well. Both are fabulous and help me immensely in the straightening department.
• mobile deposit app
I might be the last person with a smartphone to discover this, but did you know you can deposit checks into your bank account via a mobile app?
It’s true, friends. We use PNC, but I have heard this from other bank users as well. Simply click on the deposits page in your account options, and you’ll see easy-to-follow instructions on how to scan and upload your check by taking pictures. Easy, peasy!
• Keurig coffee machine
Speaking of showing up late to the party on things, um, I have a new found love for the Keurig coffee machine.
Scott and I registered for one over four years ago, but when we received our Cuisinart 10-cup grind & brew coffee maker instead, we forgot about it. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the single cup brews at work a little too much. They’re so quick and convenient!
I know… welcome to the magic of the Keurig, Heather. It’s fine.

I live for my office Keurig and I have been on a strict acai/fruit bowl for breakfast every morning. Now that fruits back in season I can’t get enough! Hope you have a great weekend!
Acai bowls… YUM!!
I love my Lorna Jane bracelet. Unlike most people, I do not have a fitness tracker, so I wear this as a reminder to stay active and drink water. Every time I look at it I tell myself “grab water” or “what can you do right now to be more active?”
That’s a great way to remind yourself to keep active. Awesome, Brynn!
Jessie @ Just Jessie
Haha the mobile check deposit app is the BEST! My bank has had it for awhile and it’s my favorite thing ever. My full-time job is direct deposit, but my part-time job is a check, so it’s always nice to be able to put it in my account as soon as I run to the gym to get it!
Exactly! I always put off going to the bank. This makes it so much easier!
The Lorna Jane bracelets came out last year in Australia and I had to get them straight away! They’re so pretty and I love wearing them to the gym 🙂
Awesome!! I still haven’t been to a store, so I hope to get over to a location one day soon. I love their whole line!
That magnet is so adorable! We have a Francesca’s here, but I haven’t been there in forever. I need to check it out again.
You always pick the funniest “funnies”.
Have a great and relaxing weekend!
Yes, you should! I’m so glad you enjoy the funnies 😉
Janelle @ Run With No Regrets
Love the bracelets! I keep hearing great things about Lorna Jane but have never shopped there. I’m looking forward to fresh summer fruits too!
I own a good amount of their stuff, and I’m absolutely obsessed with their leggings, jackets, and accessories!
Heather Dawn (@mylittlehea)
Too true on the cracker, haha! I love my Chi straightener and purchased one of their hair dryers but ended up taking it back because the reviews weren’t looking as good as I’d hoped and the one I have works just fine. I may have to reconsider if mine ever breaks!! Love Francesca’s for unique gifts!! Happy Friday!
Right?? Haha, the struggle is real. Well at least your dryer is pulling through! Why get a new one? Happy Weekend!
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
Hi Heather! TGIF! That’s great you have no plans. Don’t be jealous, but I’m down in Florida! Woohoo!! 🙂 And mobile depositing changed my life! Dave introduced me to that a few months ago and I can’t believe I hadn’t been using that feature, especially knowing that we get PRINT checks as bloggers sometimes hehe. And fresh fruit? I eat a ton too! And loving those LJ bracelets too! I want some!
Ahhhh, enjoy the FL sunshine for me! I hope you have a great weekend and getaway! xo
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul
Bahahaha I love that twerk instructional! So true! Happy Friday! 😀 Enjoy your long weekend of rest and relaxation!
I couldn’t help it. It’s so great!! Thanks Erin, you too!!
I’m actually NOT looking forward to this weekend because that just means that I will be going back to reality after vacation! Plus, Memorial Day is INSANITY in Chicago, so that will be interesting… But to be fair as well, I have had the entire week to have vacation, so I guess it is only fair!
Oh no! I hope you enjoy the last part of your long break. Happy Weekend!
Beth @ Running with the Sunrise
I have the same Keurig. It is my best friend every single morning. Love it so much. And I am all about the mobile deposits. I get physical checks for teaching yoga and it’s nice not to have to drive to the bank to deposit them. Huge time saver! Hope you have a lovely weekend, Heather!
Yes! We’ve become pretty close at well. Thanks for stopping by, and happy weekend!
Hells yes to fresh fruit. Strawberries are just starting to ripen here (west coast Canada) and I’m eating like a pint a day. Can’t wait for blueberries and peaches!! Happy long weekend!!
I love that they have been on sale lately, too! Woo hoo for fruit!!
Gretchen | Gretchruns
Yay for PNC! I actually work there and was on the team that developed that app! Glad that you like it 🙂 I’m also looking forward to this weekend! Hope that yours is great!
Go team!! It’s definitely been a convenience I’ve taken advantage of!
Brie @ Lean, Clean, & Brie
I am so happy you put that online depositing on here! I had a check I had to deposit today and was about to go off to deposit it, but looked to see if I could do the same with my bank account and turns out I could! That just saved me a trip to the bank!
Yay, I’m so glad we both could take advantage of the app this week 😉
I love online depositing – it’s so convenient! And that cracker picture is tooooo real 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Haha, right? Why is it so hard. Graham crackers too!
I love using the Kuerig machine for brewing tea- so fast and convienient!
Yes! I’ve been enjoying tea in the afternoons, too.
Annette Perkins (@FitnessPerks)
We use online check depositing for our bank basically every week-it’s the bomb, I agree!
And that cracker line funny is hilarious—SO TRUE!
Woo hoo! Thanks for checking in. I hope you have a great weekend!
Sierra&Faith Winks and Eyerolls
Happy Friday! Fresh fruit is so amazing and especially refreshing this time of year. Hooray to no plans weekends! They end up being the best because you can do whatever you want. Enjoy the long weekend 🙂
Winks and Eyerolls
Exactly! Happy weekend to you!
Strength and Sunshine
Ah fresh fruit….the best thing about summer!
Agreed! Can’t wait to bust out the watermelon soon 😉
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
Heck yes to all the fresh fruit! It’s been soooo good lately – juicy & sweet…mmm!
I got a Keurig for Christmas, and I absolutely LOVE it!! I often wonder what I did before it! 😉
It’s super convenient. It’s tempting to use instead of my coffeemaker, too, since I’m usually the only one who makes myself a cup every single morning!
Ange @ Cowgirl Runs
I like those LJ bracelets. I’m hoping they’ll still be around for BlogFest in July since we don’t have LJ stores in Canada 🙁
Hmmm, the might! I hope so, too.
Mobile deposit apps and Keurig have changed my life for the better! 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Awesome, happy weekend to you!
Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut
Yay for the weekend!! And yes, I discovered the Wells Fargo mobile deposit app, but had to delete it because I already have too many apps on my phone..ha! I just steal the BF’s! 😉
Hey, whatever works! Happy Weekend!
Emily - Morning Motivated Mom
I am not familiar with Lorna Jane…love the bracelets!
Yeah. I’m not sure why they put perforated edges on crackers. ha!
It’s such a mystery why the NEVER work, ha!
We love our Keurig, too! This week I have been loving taking it easy and recovering from my first marathon (what!?!). My husband has been super sweet and taken care of cleaning and laundry around the house. AND, he bought me a bottle of wine! 🙂
Congratulations on the marathon! It sounds like you’ve got a great hubby. Enjoy your weekend and wine!
