Good morning! Can you believe it’s already Friday? And October?
I’m currently in disbelief, but I’ll take any chance to get closer to the weekend that I can! There are some exciting plans on the docket that include a bridal shower and a trip to the cider mill to help tolerate (er, celebrate) the cold weather coming in.
Are there any fun plans on your end?
I’m coming at you a bit later than normal, so I’ll cease the chatter and jump right into what I’ve been loving with this week’s edition of Friday Favorites. 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 #109: Week of 10/2
• Third Love lingerie
ThirdLove is an app and company that makes bra shopping fun and convenient.
Disclosure: I am honored to be representing Sweat Pink as a #ThirdLovelies Ambassador, and I received this shipment free of charge. As always, all opinions remain my own!
When I’m not living in sports bras and leggings, I have been absolutely loving these sassy pieces from ThirdLove.
Their main hashtag is #burnyourotherbras, and I can see why. The Featherlight Breatheable Bra is made of ultra-light foam with nylon and spandex, and the 24/7 T-shirt bra is made of memory foam with nylon and lycra. The customizable cup size ensures a perfect fit, and there are very few bras that have ever fit me this well. And, that’s saying a lot coming from someone who worked at Victoria’s Secret
and spent half of her paycheck on them in college!
Both sets of bras and panties are ridiculously comfortable. I mean, it legitimately feels like I don’t have anything on at all, yet I feel fully supported. The 24/7 T-shirt bra in particular could follow me anywhere from running errands around town to doing cartwheels. You know, just in case I feel the need to bust one out. It’s a beautiful thing!
Here’s how ThirdLove is different:
- They use real women’s measurements, not models, to perfect their designs
- They created signature 1/2 cup sizes, because every woman’s body is unique, and old-school sizes don’t always cut it
- They developed an iPhone app that lets you measure yourself at home and shop the entire collection
ThirdLove was founded by women, for women. They created a way for us to shop for bras online, and have made it their mission to help women find their best fit. I love the details that make their everyday pieces feel a little fancier, and will be enjoying these sets for years to come!
• goodies from Paris
It’s always nice to get souvenirs from loved ones. As soon as Scott returned and settled in from his latest trip overseas, he gave me a light scarf that has a print of the city of Paris on it. He also handed me a box of caramel chocolates. You really can’t go wrong with that!
Each time he goes to Paris (it’s usually 1-2 times a year now to work the same annual events), he brings back a few bottles of nice champagne. You can’t beat the prices over there! He came home with one bottle this time, so we’ll be sure to save it for something special.
In case you missed it, National Coffee Day was Tuesday! You knew I was going to be celebrating. In fact, I dedicated an entire post to my love for it with An Ode To Coffee. It’s nice to know that a lot of you share the same obsession.
After I picked Scott up from the airport in the afternoon, we stopped by a Krispy Kreme on the way home to enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee. What do you know, they stepped it up and also threw in a free donut to everyone in our party!
We went through the drive thru and ended up getting coffee and 3 donuts (including one for Roadie in the back) because we’re ridiculous. And it was all for free. I used to have a serious love for those glazed donuts all throughout high school, and especially when they were HOT. The best, right?
Thanks for looking out, Krispy Kreme!
And speaking of coffee…
• pumpkin spice coffee
While we’re on the subject, I still haven’t ordered the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks this year, but I have had my fair share of pumpkin spice coffee instead. This orange wrapped goodness from Dunkin’ Donuts happens to be one of my favorites.
I actually picked it up at a Kroger grocery store, but you can order it online, and I would imagine that you could also find them in the Dunkin’ Donut shops for the season.
• The Heidelberg Project (Detroit)
Backing up to a couple of weeks ago, I never got around to sharing the first part of our #DetroitDateNight!
Scott was in charge of finding something the group of us had never seen before, and took us right to the middle of The Heidelberg Project. It’s not in what feels like the safest part of the city, but it’s worth a stop onto the street if you’re near Detroit’s East Side.
The Heidelberg Project is an open art environment in the heart of an urban community. Tyree Guyton, founder and artistic director, works on projects and pieces of art every day. He only uses discarded objects, and has created a two block area full of color and creativity. Here’s a quick tour if you’re intrigued.
You can also see a lot of footage from a moto-vlogger (<- seems unsafe) here starting at the 4:35 mark.
What may look like a bunch of randomly placed objects always has a theme. His latest project is called What Time Is It? and displays a street’s worth of clocks and numbers.
Now in its 29th year, The Heidelberg Project is recognized around the world as a demonstration of creativity to challenge and responds to it’s place (<- cool video) and hardships in Detroit.
Their mission is “to inspire people to appreciate and use artistic expression to enrich their lives and to improve the social and economic health of their greater community.” Pretty cool!
• natural medicine to ease motion sickness
Before we hit the road for Ohio, the group of us stopped into Fresh Thyme for lunch and snacks for the drive down. I walked over to the health and beauty aisles looking for something to help me with motion sickness, and a helpful employee steered me towards their natural homeopathic medicine you can buy over the counter (OTC).
After looking through a long list of names and symptoms, she found Cocculus Indicus that is made specifically to treat motion sickness with a need to lie down. They come in the form of tiny pellets that dissolve in your mouth, and you take five at a time up to three times per day.
That’s me taking a step back and settling my stomach while the rest of the group rode a roller coaster that goes back and forth about six times. No thanks. I took the pellets twice during my entire day at the park and have to say that I noticed a huge difference in my normal symptoms of headaches, dizziness, and extreme nausea after riding roller coasters.
I wouldn’t promote anything that wasn’t safe on this blog! You can find these and many other natural homeopathic treatments in the healthy and beauty aisles of many health and vitamin stores. I just figured I’d share!
