Sephora Play Review - June Box, Better Late Than Never

Hey there friends! Thanks for stopping by this Monday. We had a very low key weekend with nothing remarkable and I didn't take any pictures blog worthy. I guess this review comes at the perfect time and you know what they say...Better late than never. Right?! 
This definitely falls in that category.

It's taken me a while to get around to it, but I finally did a review of my June Sephora Play box.
I've included the information Sephora sent along with what I thought about the products.

As I've mentioned before I cancelled my subscription. I haven't committed to another one yet, but I do want to try a different service. Do you subscribe to any that you love? I'd love it if you shared your thoughts with me.

This post is out of order because for some strange reason I couldn't get the text to show up after the "widget" with the products. I'm sure I was doing something slightly wrong and just couldn't figure it out. Oh well. Thanks for understanding.

Hope your Monday gets your week off to a great start!

Friday Favorites #68

 Happy Friday my people. Yet another week of summer has come and gone. It's been hot here and that's okay with me. I like to know it's really summer. I've been busy as usual this week. Katie and I continue to eat pretty clean and follow our workouts for the FASTer Way To Fat Loss. We've really gotten stronger. I had to buy yet another, heavier set of weights. There's another round starting up on August 14th if you are interested in giving it a try.

Let's jump ahead and find out what made the favorites this week.


You know I love a good funny and this is me to a T. Katie seems to be constantly telling me to stay focused, especially when we are working out. Whenever we have the slightest break between exercises I'm taking advantage of it and either checking email, folding laundry or something.
 Multi-tasking is the name of my game.


Meet sweet little Leah. She made her entrance into the world Sunday. Remember yesterday when I shared the pie recipe I said I was taking dinner to our preachers family? Well you didn't think I'd leave there without getting some sweet little snuggles did you? She's a doll baby.


After reading Kellyann's post on Makeup Meltdown and her recommendation of Urban Decay's All Nighter, I went on the hunt for it. She said Nordstrom Rack had it and as luck would have it we have one close by.  If you don't have a Rack near you, you can also order it from Nordstrom. I got a variation of it called de-slick for oily skin and I've been liking the results. I don't feel like I'm nearly as shiny by the afternoon as I usually am. Thanks for the recommendation beautiful friend!


Look at these happy faces! 
Nothing makes my heart happier than seeing my kids happy (and in love💕).


Doing girl things with my favorite girl.


I've got a treat for the next TWO new Preferred Customer who order before the end of the month. I'll send you a cute little cosmetics bag with a 3 day supply of Active Hydration Serum, a travel size eye cream, Lip Renewing Serums and 2 mini facials. One for you and one to share with a friend. (and if a friend you refer signs up, I'll gift you an Essentials item of your choice). So if you've been thinking about trying something from Rodan + Fields this is the perfect time. We also still have our special bundle of any regimen + Active Hydration Serum and you'll receive a FREE travel size regimen.


I recently shared this product (here) and I have to say the more I use it the more love it!

Lemonade Freezer Pie

Don't you just a love a dessert that's both super easy and delicious? Yeah, me too! Being a good Southern girl means taking meals to people when they are sick, sad, or had baby. Our preacher and his wife had a baby Sunday and I'm taking dinner to them tonight and to another sweet friend who's having some surgery tomorrow. Well of course I wouldn't dream of showing up without a yummy dessert. When I was thinking about what to take this popped into my head. It'll make you pucker up, but in a good way. A kiss the cook way.

Here's what you'll need.

Combine the sweetened condensed milk and lemonade concentrate until thoroughly combined.

Fold in Cool Whip.

Pour into ready made graham cracker crust or if you are an over achiever a homemade one. I doubled the recipe for two pies.

🍋Lemonade Freezer Pie🍋

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 small can frozen lemonade
1 8oz. Cool Whip
1 ready made graham cracker crust

Combine sweetened condensed milk and lemonade concentrate until thoroughly mixed.
Fold in cool whip and pour into crust.
Place in freezer 4 hours or over night.
Let slightly thaw before serving. 
Garnish with whipped cream and lemon slices or zest if desired.

So you know what they say. When life give you lemons🍋🍋🍋, make lemonade freezer pie.

Happy Thursday friends!

Linking up with my friend Allie for Try It Thursday and The Blended Blog for Tasty Tuesday.
Stop over and find some yummy new recipes.

What's Up Wednesday

Wow, this week is great with two link ups in a row. Gives me a break for coming up with something on my own. Is that too lame for you? Sorry. I'm linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday and sharing what's currently going on in the Richardson house.

Here's what you will learn.

What We're Eating This Week...

We are still trying to eat pretty clean these days and following the FASTer Way To Fat Loss program. While I'm at it let me mention there is another round coming up on August 14th. Honestly, if I wasn't going to be traveling the first 3 weeks I'd do it again. I feel so much better and stronger after completing the first round. If you are looking for a good way to jump start your road to healthy eating and exercising this is a great way to do it. (The link above is an affiliate link...full disclosure, but I'd never recommend something I didn't believe in)

OK, back to what we've been eating.

 Chopped salad with shrimp

 spiralized cucumber Greek salad

 Egg, bacon & tomato wrapped in lettuce

Apple/Pork/Turkey burger with  grilled Ceasar salad

Salmon, grilled Caesar salad, broiled tomatoes w/feta and Italian seasoning

What I'm reminiscing about...

After my post on travel tips and vacation destinations I'm thinking about the beach.

What I'm loving...

I bet I don't even have to tell you. 

I'm totally loving having my playmate home.

What we've been up to...

All kinds of shenanigans from shopping to working out. It's been great!

What I'm dreading...

Katie going back to school.

What I'm working on and What I'm excited about...

I just booked our trip to Hawaii.

What I'm Watching/Reading...

I'm so ready for all our shows we like to watch to come back with new episodes. That's one of my favorite things about fall.

What I'm listening to...

We are loving listening to our new Echo.

We just tell her a type of music or certain artist and she takes care of the rest.

What I'm wearing...

I've been really bad about documenting what I'm wearing lately, but I am loving this top.

And I ordered a couple of new pairs of Nike shorts (here & here) from the Nordstrom sale.

What I'm doing this weekend...

Good question.

What I'm looking forward to next month...

Getting to see my mom and dad in Nashville. They are going to make the 600+ mile drive to come see me and the kids when I'm there taking Katie back to school.

And of course I'll get to spend time with these two adorable people.

What else is new...

Rodan + Fields announced this week another great bundled special.
Order any regimen plus our Active Hydration Serum and receive a FREE travel size regimen. People have been asking for these and corporate listened. 

They are only available while supplies last and rumor is they are selling out quickly. If you are a frequent traveler or have a special trip (like say, Hawaii) coming up, you're going to want to have one of these TSA travel size approved regimens.

The next 2 people to contact me and become a Preferred Customer before the end of the month will receive a FREE mini-facial with a travel size eye cream and 3 day sample of Active Hydration Serum (perfect for a weekend get away) and 2 weeks supply of Lip Renewing Serum plus an extra mini-facial to share with a friend.

Contact me to get yours before they're all gone.

Okay friends, that about does it. You can consider yourself up to speed on the Richardson's.
Hope your week is going wonderfully.
