Happy Friday friends! It is almost the weekend and I am so ready for it! This week has been so long. But, Friday’s mean a Friday Favorites post! Woot woot!
Friday Favorites #9
1. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with the “Mother”)
I’ve been reading a lot about how amazing apple cider vinegar is supposed to be. My mom said she had started drinking it with water and honey and she’s noticed the most difference in her skin and how it feels. I’ve been using it for a week now and I have only noticed a slight difference in my skin. I do notice that when I drink my serving of it (which is 2 tsp. with 8 oz. of cold water and 1 tsp. honey) I feel really full. Taking apple cider vinegar is apparently supposed to aid with weight loss by making you feel full. There are not many scientific studies that I have found on that and I’m not really trying to lose weight so I’m not as into that.
I’m more into trying it to see if it helps my skin. So, I also made a skin toner (diluted with water) with it that I started using about 2 days ago and it actually makes my skin feel really good after applying it to my face. Overall my opinion of it so far is that it’s not some magic potion that fixes all health problems. But I haven’t been using it that long, so I’ll let you know how I feel about it in a couple of weeks after I’ve used it longer.
2. Fall Scented Candles
I LOVE candles! But I must say fall candles are probably my fave out of all seasons. So naturally I’m like a kid in a candy shop when it comes looking at fall candles. 😉 I ended up buying some this past week because I had a bunch of Kohl’s cash and a coupon for $10 off anything at Kohl’s.
So naturally I splurged and bought a Yankee Candle (Warm Luxe Cashmere) and then I bought a Sonoma candle (Lakeside Campfire). I love both of the scents and have been constantly lighting them. 🙂 And I think I only had to pay $7 out of pocket for both of them. But they’ll last me for almost the whole season…so WORTH IT!
3. YouTube Vlogs
Maybe I’m weird but I love watching vloggers on YouTube. Especially family vlogs. I’ve been following Ellie and Jared for a while and they’re a family vlog. And I’ve just discovered Kendra Atkins. She has more lifestyle, make-up, decorating tips, etc. and then she has “A Day in the Life” vlogs that follow her and her little family on the weekends. Anyway, like I said maybe I’m weird for enjoying following family vloggers but whatever. Haha! I just like the concept of vlogging….maybe we should start one! I don’t think Aaron would go for that… 😉
Well, there you have it! This week’s Friday Favorites. I hope you all have a good weekend!
