Hi, guys! Happy Friday!
The other day, I was out with one of my girlfriends and she gave me a compliment on my hair. She said it looked healthy and shiny and then she ask me what my secret was. I immediately replied, “magic hairspray!” I explained it actually wasn’t hairspray at all, but a “silkening mist” that I’ve used for years. My friend Marie actually introduced me to it back in 2011, and I’ve used and loved it ever since. It’s the best!
My “magic hairspray” actually got me thinking about some of the products that I buy again and again because I just love them so much. I’m always on the lookout for the best new products, but these ones are tried-and-true favorites that just can’t be topped. I highly recommend each of these products and, if you decide to try them, know you’ll love them, too!
Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist (aka “magic hairspray”) – This stuff is the best ever, especially when you’re having a bad hair day. It instantly adds shine, smooths frizz, and smells so great. It’s basically like giving your hair a boost when it needs it most. My go-to hairstyle lately is towel-drying my hair, spritzing it with sea salt spray and magic hairspray, and then letting it air dry. This gives me soft, smooth waves with very minimal effort!
Brooks Glycerin – My favorite running shoe ever – and I wore them even before I started working with Brooks. They provide just the right amount of flexibility and “bounce,” but they’re also stable and supportive in all the right places. FYI: Zappos.com has free shipping on them both ways!
Teddie Peanut Butter – I’ve tried a lot of peanut butter brands over the years and nothing beats Teddie. It truly has the best flavor and texture ever. It’s rich and thick, and it’s only ingredients are peanuts and salt.
SFH protein powder – I love SFH because it tastes great (Churro and Vanilla are my favorite flavors) and doesn’t have any of that funny stuff in it. It’s whey protein, but it doesn’t mess with my stomach like some other whey protein powders.
Juno Sports Bra – I know I’ve mentioned this sports bra on CNC a zillion times in the past, but it’s truly one of my long-time favorites and has served me well for years now. I typically wear my beloved Juno for long-distance running (and Orangetheory and CrossFit) because it has plenty of support, shape (no uni-boob), full coverage (no crazy cleavage), and adjustable straps that completely un-Velcro when you need it. I also love that it’s a racerback to go with all of my tank tops. Best sports bra ever!
Nikki’s Coconut Butter – My favorite is the vanilla cake batter, but I love a lot of Nikki’s flavors! I often eat it straight from the jar with a spoon, and it’s the perfect bite of deliciousness when you need something sweet. I also like spreading it on rice cakes and mashing it with banana or berries. So good!
Maybelline Full & Soft Mascara – I’ve tried a lot of expensive mascaras over the years, but I still love Full & Soft from Maybelline the best. It lifts and separates lashes, and it’s priced right! 🙂
