Top Five Friday #54

Hi and Happy Friday everyone!  Did you all have a good week?  Mine was absolutely crazy-  we're getting settled into our new house now that we're all moved in, and I started a new job!  I'll be talking more about it in the next "What's New With You" linkup (make sure you join us on June 2), but needless to say this week has been hard.  I think I'm ready for some wine and relaxing this weekend!

Linking up with MarCynthia and Court 
as well as Heather and Momfessionals

I have some favorites from the week to share with you today.  I hope you enjoy, and have a fantastic weekend.  See you on Monday!


Shark Clothes Steamer

I actually borrowed this tool from my sister to steam my living room curtains after I washed them.  After seeing how amazingly it worked (and using it multiple times on my clothes this week) I need to get one for myself!

I love how quickly this removes wrinkles from my clothes and is pretty much fool proof.  I usually iron my clothes each morning, and this makes that process so much faster, and I'm not ruining clothes by ironing creases in them or burning holes through thin shirts.  I'm thinking about buying this one for myself!



Micellar Water wipes

I actually bought these wipes for my trip to Belize, but I'm in love with them!  I'm stil not wearing much makeup on an every day basis, so lately I've just been using one of these after work to clean my skin.  They're so gentle and don't irritate my skin at all, but they also help to remove makeup.  These aren't as heavy duty as a real makeup remover, but for natural days I highly recommend checking out this line!



John Frieda Salon Shape 1.5 Inch Hot Air Brush

I mentioned last week that I got a hair cut, and I've rediscovered my love for the hot air brush!  I got this last year and stopped using it for a while, and decided to give it a try with my new hair cut.  I absolutely love how full it makes my hair look- almost like getting a blow out at home!  If you're looking for an inexpensive tool that will give you some major volume quickly- check this out.



French Open

Any other tennis fans out there? It's time for another Grand Slam tournament! I get so excited when these roll around, and I'm really pulling for Djokovic to get his career slam! On the women's side there are quite a few players that I'm cheering for, so I'm excited to see how the draw goes and will be watching as many rounds as I can!


Just like most runners, I try really hard to work on injury prevention and recovery. So, I was really excited when a local business reached out to me to try their product, which are all about recovery. I decided to try the Recovery Wrap, which is really easy and comfortable to use. The ice pack can either be frozen or warmed up, so it's great for dealing with all kinds of pain! I can't wait to use this more once I start training for my next big race, but if you're looking for a new recovery tool make sure you check out Spand-Ice!


What are your favorites this week?

  1. I have a steam mop but I reaaaally want a clothes steamer so I can use it for cleaning things too! I always feel like I'm a true adult when I admire appliances, hahaha!

    I am totally with you on those micellar wipes too! My sister had some and I borrowed one and have been hooked ever since! I've got super sensitive skin so they're my new fave - and now I feel like I need that recovery wrap too.... but for the heating side of things because it is getting coldddd in Sydney and I could totally do with a heat pack I can walk around with :P

  2. You know that I get all excited about Wimbledon. The French Open reminds me of my honeymoon--it was being played while we were in Paris!

  3. I used to work at Forever 21 and at night I had to go and steam all of the mannequin's clothes. So I mean, I kind of have nightmares about those things ;)

  5. Omg last night I had a dream that I cut all my hair off!!! It was awful. Although, I do need a trim. My ends are fried. Maybe that's why I had a dream about my hair. Friday favourites? Ummm I'm totally into crackers with jalapenos. I ate them every day this week.

  10. hmmmm those wipes look interesting! i have the water, but it's a pain to put it on the cotton pads or whatever to take my makeup off, though it does work. i might try the wipes.
