I’m in a peppy mood this morning, which is great for having to be at work before 7 a.m. After a full day at the gym, Scott and I will be kicking off our weekend with a New Kids On the Block concert! Yep, I said NKOTB. They’re throwing it back for a nationwide tour with Nelly and TLC, so we obviously need to go. Where my 80s babies at?
Saturday will be just as eventful with a 5K and trip over to Detroit for the Grand Prix races. We’ve got plenty to keep us busy, that’s for sure!
Getting right to why you clicked over, 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 #91: Week of 5/29
After seeing the online jewelry service pop up across the Internet over the past few months, I was thrilled to finally receive my first Rocksbox this week!
If you are someone who likes to “go shopping” by borrowing jewelry from your roommate, friend, or family member, this service would be right up your alley.
You can become a Shine Insider and have unlimited access to rent from an ever-rotating closet of designer jewelry for $19 a month!
How it works:
1. Take the style survey and add items to your jewelry Wish List.
2. Receive three pieces of jewelry on loan. Each piece is hand-selected for you based on your style and specific requests, and you can wear them as much as you want!
3. Return your Rocksbox pieces anytime and as often as you like. Every set has 3 pieces of designer jewelry, worth an average of $200 per set.
With summer weddings in mind, I went a little brighter and fancier than I normally would.
I selected more “night on the town” and special occasion statement jewelry, versus softer, smaller pieces.
I was very happy with the pieces I received. After filling out my style profile, I typed out a detailed request for pieces to wear with specific dresses to upcoming weddings and showers.
All of my dresses are in the blue and green family, and one has a pop of coral. I made sure to make a note of this information and included a request of a gold base this round. My stylist nailed it!
Perry Street Jane Necklace // Trina Turk Hexagon Stone Flex Bracelet // Maragret Elizabeth Two Stone Drops Earrings
You can choose to send everything back, or buy any piece from your Rocksbox Set. Each month alots $10 in Shine Spend to apply towards a purchase!
What I like most about this service is that I can send back the pieces when I’m done borrowing them. I love having a variety of quality jewelry available, but I don’t always like to invest in designer items. Shipping is always free and pre-paid both ways. I will be keeping these pieces throughout the month of June to get me through my weddings and showers, then will most likely send them back to see what I get next.
Great news! If you’re interested in trying this service out for yourself, you can get 1 month of Rockbox jewelry FREE using the code lifenleggingsxoxo upon checkout!
I’m not a huge fan of soda. In fact, I only really drink it in the form of a slurpee, mixed in with vanilla vodka, or in a root beer float.
Every now and then, however, I get an upset stomach or craving for the carbonation. I recently decided to give Zevia a try, and picked up a six-pack of the Black Cherry cans on my last trip into Whole Foods.
Compared to traditional diet soda, the health benefits of drinking this zero-calorie drink are clear. Literally.
Zevia is Non-GMO, vegan, and gluten free verified, and contains zero artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors, colors, or phosphoric acid. It’s free of synthetic caffeine, and is very low in sodium. I’ve been enjoying the naturally sweet bubbly drink all week, and am looking forward to trying more flavors soon!
• lululemon skinny headband
Anyone who has met me a time or two probably knows that I have a thing for headbands. Bonus points if they have elastic or velvet on the inside to prevent slippage!
I received this lululemon skinny fly away tamer headband as a birthday gift and wear it at least once a week. Isn’t it adorable?
Would you be surprised to find out that the only pieces I own from lululemon are headbands and barre socks? It’s true. While I could easily spend my entire paychecks on their fitness apparel, I just haven’t splurged. One of these days I’ll hit up an outlet and be in some serious trouble.
• seasoned Triscuits
While I don’t eat whole grains all too often (here’s why!), I do love me some Triscuit crackers from time to time. Pair them with a tub of hummus, and I’m usually half a box deep within an episode of Friends.
I enjoy the original and reduced fat versions, but I like to try the boxes of seasoned crackers on occasion, too. Scott brought this Dill, Sea Salt & Olive Oil flavor home this week, and I cannot stop eating them. So good!
• remote control stand fan
Some of you might remember me mentioning that our air conditioning went out a week or so ago. Lucky for us, it was in the middle of a cool spell, but we still wanted some ventilation in our bedroom at night until it got fixed.
Enter this glorious 16″ DC Stand Fan via Walmart.
It’s super fancy with 38 speeds (what?!) and comes with a remote control.
It’s relatively quiet for the amount of air it moves around, too. I especially love the natural setting that is made to feel like an off and on breeze you would experience while sitting outdoors. It’s totally worth the investment!
• Vince Camuto cologne
There’s a new type of spray I’ve been digging lately, and it isn’t for women.
Scott picked up this bottle of Vince Camuto cologne from the outlet mall a couple weeks ago, and I love walking into the bathroom after he sprays it. Is that weird? Probably.
Ladies, if you’re looking for a new woodsy scent to gift a special man in your life, I highly recommend this one. You can find it at high-end department stores, Perfumania, or online here, here, and here.

… because what better way to celebrate Friday than with weekend-themed animal memes?
The seal killed me.
Ha! I want all of them!
Have a great weekend!

Natalie @ The Ravenous Mommy
My last splurge on Lululemon was a pair of amazingly comfy workout/lounge pants last winter. They were basically my uniform for a couple months, hehe. It was worth it!
I’ve heard amazing things about their Wonder Unders. Those, I might just splurge for.
Everyone is loving Rocksbox recently! I feel like it is like Fabletics–something that I know I would like, but I need to wear what I have first! but that blue necklace….. Have a great weekend!
I know… I guess I never really “need” new accessories… but I kind of do. 😉 Thanks Suzy, you too!
Janelle @ Run With No Regrets
Rocksbox sounds amazing!! What a great idea! I will definitely look into that! And that fan looks really nice…much needed with this awfully hot and humid weather we’re having in Philly!
I’m loving it so far! If you want to try it too, make sure you take advantage of 1 FREE box using the code: lifenleggingsxoxo 😉
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul
Happy Friday! I LOVE Zevia! And those necklaces are beautiful!
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul
Umm one necklace! haha Maybe I dreamed seeing two?
Haha, it’s still early. Thanks for linking up! Happy Friday! xo
Hope you have an amazing time at the concert! That would be my ultimate throwback concert! The Friday Funnies are absolutely hilarious, I especially love the horse one! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂
Thanks, Kaitie! I’m sure it will be a blast. I’m glad you appreciate the funnies as much as I do! 🙂
I agree with you about the indifference to soda, but I have had root beer floats on the brain all week.
That headband is so cute!
I’ll never deny a chance to have a “real” root beer float. They’re SO good!
Kelly Runs for Food
Oh my gosh, NKOTB!! You’re gonna have so much fun. I definitely remember listening to their cassettes and having posters on my wall.
I don’t own anything by Lululemon either. I loooove looking at their stuff, but I’m a huge cheapskate, so most of my workout clothes come from TJ Maxx or Target.
Cassettes, YES! And the posters, haha. Those were the best!!
Beth @ Running with the Sunrise
Seriously LOLed at that elephant seal meme. Hilarious. I just got a new Rocksbox and put it in my Friday faves, haha. I actually kept a ring from my first one because I loved it so much. Their stylists are pretty good! Have a great weekend and enjoy the concert! I have some friends who went to their concert in Chicago and really liked it.
Ahhh! NKOTB and TLC! I die! I was in love with Joey and had all the NKOTB gear. “The Right Stuff” Totally dating myself here 😉 Hope you have a blast!
Chelsea @ Raw N' Toned
Oh man I’d be in trouble if I had that remote control fan hahaha I’d never get up. And I’ve been dying to try zevia, but I get nervous about it! I’m on of those people that is afraid of not liking food/drinks hahaha Maybe now I’ll give it a try! Have fun this weekend!
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
Happy Friday, Heather! I have been keeping a ton of stuff from my Rocksbox deliveries because they are so on-point with what they send me! And who doesn’t need more headbands? Hope you enjoy all your fun activities this weekend. I need rest after getting back from Florida yesterday afternoon and heading straight to work! As always, thanks for hosting! 🙂
Annette Perkins (@FitnessPerks)
I tried Rocksbox and liked it! I didn’t buy any of the jewelry though, at least right now, b/c it’s way too expensive IMO. But then again, if I had a wedding or something coming up, I’d consider it.
I LOVE Zevia! The grapefruit citrus and root beer are my faves!
I adore the idea of Rocksbox! Sometimes I want to mix up my jewelry, but I tend to only buy classic pieces I know I’ll get a lot of use out of, and it seems like the perfect solution. Have fun at the concert and enjoy your weekend 🙂
Bahaha that seal photo is amazing. I feel like that’s how I look when I turn on the camera on my phone and realize it’s in selfie mode… YIKES! I discovered Zevia yesterday at Whole Foods… my life has been changed. Love it! : ) Hope you have an amazing weekend !!
Sarah @ Sarah's on the Run
I haven’t tried Zevia yet but I need to! Those triscuits too! 🙂
I’ve been hearing a lot about Rocksbox. I love jewelry so it sounds great. Also I’m a huge fan of Zevia. I like their cream soda and rootbeer!
I was looking into RocksBox but it’s too pricey to ship to Canada 🙁 And there are no Canadian alternatives affordable enough!
I also love Zevia for when I’m craving something Coke-like! The cherry one is good too 🙂
Aw, I’m sorry to hear that. I’ll be on the lookout for more flavors!
I got the same necklace in my last Rocksbox and loved it!
It might be hard to send that one back 😉
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
Yay! Glad you got to try out Rocksbox! I just received my third box from them, and they just get better and better. I’ve bought a couple pieces too – it’s so fun!
I have GOT to find those Triscuits … I’ve been all about dill lately, so I’m thinking those will be right up my alley. 😉
You would love them! I’m a sucker for anything dill. And, all the pickles. All the time. It’s a problem. Happy Friday!
Kelsey Mann Peacock
Love the jewelry in your RocksBox! Have a great weekend!
Thanks Kelsey, you too!
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
I saw a sign for that concert when Scott and I were driving down from Virgina to North Carolina for a wedding. What a cast of characters – have a great time! I only have one top from Lululemon that was a gift. Like you – I just haven’t splurged yet. But it is oh so tempting. 🙂
Right? I’m sure it will be entertaining! Can’t wait to pull out all the old dance moves! 😉 Happy Weekend!
Sierra&Faith Winks and Eyerolls
Happy Friday Heather! A soda that actually doesn’t sound that bad for you, who knew?!?! Loving that head band too. Ugh, triscuits can be such a weakness. The cracked pepper and olive oil are really good too. Have a great weekend!
Winks and Eyerolls
Ahhh, that cracked pepper flavor is delicious! I feel a Triscuits kick coming on soon… 😉 Happy Friday!
That seal though! LOL
Also, I own nothing from Lulu but I’ve never been to one of their stores, so I can’t be sure I won’t go crazy if I do haha
Thanks for hosting 😀
Right? SO good. Thanks so much for linking up!
Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me
