Brittany B.! I’ve already been in touch with her and those delicious KIND Bars will be on their way soon.

It’s time for some Friday Favorites!  Some are random things that I have tried, others are products for which I am an Ambassador, still other are advertisers that I am affiliated with. I hope you will trust me when I say that I truly only do business with products that I love and respect. Plus I am able to offer you a few discounts and promotions!

Running Buddy

Running Buddy

Not only have I been using the Running Buddy when I run to stash my phone, key, and nutrition, I used it all cross country season to carry things while I was at various meets. It is light weight, stays in place, and has enough room to fit your phone, cash or a credit card, a gel or two, and a key. Use the code RBUDDYA15 to save 15% and get free shipping!


I haven’t written about it yet because I want to see if it sticks, but I have slowly been getting back on my yoga mat. I was a member of long before I became an affiliate. I pay an annual fee and I have a choice of hundreds of yoga downloads, both audio and video, in a variety of lengths, with great instructors. I prefer the audio classes. I just download them to my phone and I’m ready to go.

Mizuno Wave Riders

Mizuno Wave Riders - Friday Favorites

It’s hard to believe, but I am on my fourth pair of Wave Riders. I love these shoes. I am a recent Mizuno convert, though I had heard many runners praise the brand over the years. I finally decided to try them out and I am so happy I did. Did I say? I love these shoes.! Never Settle! Free Shipping On All Running Orders Over $100! Click Here!

Kindrunner - Friday Favorites

I want to mention Kindrunner here because even though I haven’t purchased new shoes for a while, I want everyone to know about this great company that makes a point of giving back. In addition to many other benefits, whenever you purchase a new pair of shoes you can send in your old pair (free shipping) and earn $10 in Kindness Cash Rewards to use on your next pair. Your old shoes will be repurposed and given to someone who really needs them.


Bestowed Box - Friday Favorites

I happily reviewed a Bestowed Box last week and I was reminded how cool it is to receive a monthly package in the mail that is full of healthy and original snacks. If you sign up using the above link or by clicking the banner in the sidebar you will save $5 on your first Box!


Friday Favorites - Therafit shoe

It’s been a long time since I reviewed the Therafit shoe, but I still wear my shoes to work. I love that they are designed specifically for women, come in beautiful bright colors, and that I can wear them for hours at work and my feel still feel comfortable. Since my review they added sandals to their lineup!  You can save 10% when you use the code BAPDW37 at checkout.


I became an affiliate because of my long term relationship as a customer and listener with the audiobook downloading service. I joined Audible in 2006 and I have been listening to books ever since. I listen while I drive to work, while I clean my house, when I run.


Swirlgear - Friday Favorites

I don’t always mention it, but I wear my Swirlgear all the time. I love the color, the fabric, and the fact that this small company is all-women owned. Use code 1014 at checkout for free shipping!

Ignite Naturals

Ignite Naturals - Friday Favorites

I’ve been using Ignite Natural In Refresh Electrolytes since I was first introduced to it months ago. I love that it contains no sugar or artificial ingredients, has vitamins and minerals, and it tastes great! I just got some exciting news (and a special package) from Ignite: The In Refresh is now available in single serving packets (I already ordered mine)! The package I received was a box of  Reload Energy Gels. I haven’t tried them yet, but they are also all natural, made either from 100% organic fig paste or 100% organic brown rice syrup. I’ll report back after I’ve had a chance to try them out.


Kind Bar - Friday Favorites

Kind Snacks not only sent me a great sample package to review, they provided a prize for my giveaway! I have always loved Kind Bars. They are made with whole ingredients with names you can pronounce. And they taste great!

I have a fun weekend planned. With no cross country meet, and it being my birthday and all, we are doing the Grandson Sweep: Heading to Huntington Beach on Saturday to see the twins play soccer and stay overnight, then down the coast to San Diego, to visit Samuel who just turned 11 months! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate

What are your weekend plans? I’d love to hear about some of your favorite things!

Disclosure: As I mentioned above, I am an Ambassador for several of these products and receive a discount when I purchase. I am an affiliate for, Audible, Bestowed, Therafit, and Mizuno, so if you click through and order I will receive a few dollars. All opinions are 100% my own.
