EP30: The Friday 5 – April 2nd

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Welcome to the next edition of The Friday 5! You’re in for a treat with five new favorites. You can watch the video episode below. 

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

This product is super affordable as far as skincare goes. It’s only $8! I think I’ve talked about it before, but I had to mention it again. It’s a 10-minute exfoliating peeling solution – the kind that feels like you’re ripping your face off (in the best way possible). I first heard about it on Big Brother, and after doing some intense Google searching, I found it and have been been obsessed ever since. This is my third bottle. It’s great for hyperpigmentation (I apply it on my melasma) and acne scars. I use this about 2-3x per week. 

2. Quinn Microwave Popcorn

If you’ve ever looked at the ingredients in microwave popcorn, they typically aren’t so great. We love this brand as the ingredients are great and they use non-GMO corn. Conventional corn is also a top place to find mold (which I’m trying to detox from already). It’s a little hard to find this brand, so we just order online. The cheddar flavor is delicious – Quinn can gobble up an entire bag himself! It’s great to have on hand for a fun family move night treat. 


3. Fullstar Vegetable Chopper, Spiralizer & Slicer

I am certain I’ve shared about this vegetable chopper more than once before, but it’s definitely worth another shoutout. Once you have this in your life, you will thank me every day. I personally use it almost every day as it makes meal prep a breeze. I can chop up a whole bag of potatoes in minutes – highly recommend! Be cautious: the blades are extremely sharp, so this kitchen gadget is not kid-friendly. 


4. 1822 Skinny Jeans

I got these 1822 Skinny Jeans in one of my recent Stitch Fix orders, and I love them! They’re very affordable; you can get them from Nordstrom, too, if you want to order them individually. They’re stretchy, but not so stretchy that you get a saggy butt. They fit very well, and I know I’ll be wearing them all Spring and Summer. 


5. Coffee Sweatshirt

As you know, I love coffee. My friend over at @igotaguysshirts offered to make me this cute sweatshirt. I bought another one of my new favorite sweatshirts from Amazon and then he did the screen printing. Cute, right? Best part: I’m giving one away! Simply comment on this post and make sure to follow @igotaguysshirts. I’ll pick a winner on Monday.
