Friday Favorites: My Go-To List


1. Havaianas Slim Logo Flip Flops – Living in AZ, I have the wonderful luxury of wearing flip flops 365 sunny days a year… but even if I didn’t, I would still live in these guys. They are light, comfy, and totally wearable all day long – in and out of the house! THE best flip flops you will EVER find. Period.

2. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara in Very Black – Really, the only mascara I will ever wear. It makes my naturally thin and sparse eyelashes appear so much longer and fuller than they really are…without creating a clumpy look. Super-bonus: it doesn’t irritate my uber sensitive eyes. Cannot live without this mascara!

3. Tiffany & Co. Cursive ‘H’ Pendant – Simple, classic, timeless. Three words I feel ALL of my jewelry should be. I’m an active mom – a BUSY, active mom!! I don’t have time to swap, pair, and coordinate jewelry often…and I especially don’t have the time to spend shopping for it very often! When I buy (or Chris buys) a piece of jewelry, I know it’s got to be something that will last forever, and will go with anything and everything. This necklace…perfect. In every single way. It’s simple, it’s classic, it’s timleess, AND I can personalize! Mine is an “H”, but really you can get whatever letter has meaning to you.

4. Reebok Whatevers Good Pant & Reebok Studio YO-GA Hoodie – The combo of these pants and this hoodie is HEAVENLY! I know it may look like I’m in workout gear 24/7, but between filming the show, interviews, TV appearances, business meetings, and everything in between, I am CONSTANTLY changing outfits and feeling “overdone”. As soon as I get home you better believe I’m in my comfy clothes. The pants are incredible – super soft and cute…I would wear them everyday if I could. The YOGA hoodie – amaze. And perfect for daily use around my house since Chris thinks our home needs to be an icebox ;). {Update: This hoodie is no longer available, find a similar one here.}

5. Little Giraffe Luxe Baby Blanky – The BEST blankets! Moms/Dads – if your kids have ever had one, you know what I’m talking about. Cash and Ruby are both “blanky babies” and completely addicted to them. Love their colors, and love that I can even order one for me!! Adult-sized :). Ahhhhh…love.

6. Splendid Very Light Jersey Long Sleeve Tee in White – I’m telling you, everything Splendid designs is pure bliss! I love it all. Like with my jewelry, I’m a super simple person when it comes to wardrobe – I love things I can dress up or down, that are classic and easily transition from season to season. This shirt fits the bill! Soft as butter and fits perfect – I can throw it on with jeans and some cute heels for a date night with Chris, or pair it with some cutoffs and my favorite flip flops for errands with the kids. The options with this tee are endless…definitely a fave find!

7. Boostcase Hybrid Battery Case for iPhone 5 in Gold – Sad but true, much of my life is on my phone. With as much as we have going on, I simply can’t be caught without it most days, and letting die is just not an option. This case was a Mother’s Day gift from Chris, and has been SUCH a lifesaver! It charges my iPhone battery AND the case battery at the same time, so…I can rest assured I’ll never have a dead phone. I love that the battery pack can easily snap off when I need a super slim phone, unlike the slew of other battery cases I’ve tried, and…it’s gold. What’s not to love?!

Now that I’ve shared some of my can’t-live-withouts, I want to hear from YOU! What’s on your essentials list?!

  2. Natalia - September 20, 2014

    Loved your list! I have the pleasure of living in Brazil (where havaianas ware created long time ago), so I kind of wear these flip flops since I was a kid! So comfortable, so good for sunny days! …And what about this battery case! so practical, especially for people who works outdoors and need their mobile phones always on! Nice =D

  3. Stephanie - September 8, 2014

    Love this list! I will def be checking out the splendid shirt for sure! (Along with the yoga pants and phone case!) Here are some of my favorites:

    I love PInk basic vneck tshirts for casual days (most of the time for us!)

    And these are my absolute favorite blankets for my little guy (and even myself at times!!) they especially work great because my guy is always sweaty and gets overheated quick.

    Most times I only wear a Chapstick/lip balm and while I love coconut oil it doesnt stay on for a long time. My favorite lip product is definitely Baby Lips 🙂

  4. amy - September 5, 2014

    I LOVE my Sanuk flip flops–they’re made out of yoga mat material and feel like you’re walking on a cloud! Unfortunately I also live where there is snow for ~6-7 months of the year, so a comfy pair of ugg boots is key!

    For my baby boy it’s all about his muslin aiden+anais blanket with yellow giraffes 😉

  5. Kelly - September 5, 2014

    I cannot live without my bondiband headbands. I am 50 and have these special “summer” moments where I have sweat pouring off my head……..okay, they are hot flashes! My bondibands are fantastic for keeping the sweat out of my eyes and off my collar. Plus, they come in cute colors and sayings. Totally worth every penny !
