The Friday Five

1.  I am loving all of the fun colors of the Nike Dri-FIT Cool Strappy Tanks!  Not only are they cute, but they’re lightweight with a loose fit.

P.S.  Tennessee folks, don’t forget that it’s tax-free weekend this weekend!  Here are the Fleet Feet hours…

2.  I just finished reading Happily Ali After by Ali Wentworth and it was hilarious!  It is the perfect light summer read.

3.  Thanks to my friend Shyla, I discovered Steve’s Cold-brewed Cinnamon Coffee Non-Dairy Ice Cream.  (Say that 10 times fast!) You guys…it is so good and it’s vegan and gluten-free!

4.  You know I love a documentary.  I just recently saw the Amy Winehouse documentary, “Amy.”  It is haunting and heartbreaking, but full of incredible music and insight into her life.

5.  Yes, I’m writing about deodorant.  I’m a runner.  This is a hot topic (pun intended)!  I’ve been working on replacing my traditional products with all-natural alternatives.  I’ve tried the crystals and natural deodorants at Whole Foods.  This Schmidt’s Deodorant is the best I’ve found and it smells amazing.

I’m loving the Bergamot and Lime scent but they have more options.  Your jar comes with an a little applicator, you warm the deodorant between your fingers, and apply.  Super simple.

Bonus!!  I reached out to Schmidt’s and they were kind enough to offer JCJ readers a discount code!  Enter JENCHOOSES for 15% off your order at schmidtsdeordorant.com!

    Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend! (those Nike tanks are very tempting…one can never have too many workout tops, right?)

      Exactly!!! I’m using the fact that it’s tax free weekend in TN to stock up on more colors!

      I bought it at Kroger but Whole Foods might carry it too. It’s SO good!!!

  • Britni Brown

    Hey Jen! How is the sizing on this tank? I could probably be a true small, but depending on the fit I sometimes go to a medium bc I don’t like for things to feel constricted on me. Does it have a looser fit? Thanks so much, have a blessed weekend!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      It runs a little loose. I have a small and it’s not clingy at all. Happy Friday!!!

    Wish Utah would do a tax free weekend! Those dri-fit tanks look nice.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I think it’s so cool that TN does this to help family’s with their back-to-school shopping!

  • http://www.suzyhastheruns.com Suzy Hutchins

    Oh I’d love to see Amy. Is it out in theatres? Or on Netflix? I’m so out of the loop because I don’t ever watch TV. Like, ever.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      It’s in theaters right now and dvd release in October!

    I love coffee-flavored (everything) ice cream, Jen! Also, I’m glad you’ve found an all-natural deodorant that is working for you; I’ll have to check this one out. I’ve tried them, in the past, and I just need more help – ha! I’m so delighted to hear that you enjoyed Happily Ali After; I love her!! I need to read that one, too! Hope you have a great weekend, Jen, and get that run in early tomorrow morning – whew!

      All things coffee!!!☕️☕️☕️

    I enjoy cinnamon in my coffee every morning. I need to check out that ice cream! Chemicals are everywhere…it’s gross. I’m interested to try this natural deodorant.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I’m slowly trying to replace my regular products with all natural versions, but it takes a while to find ones that work for me.
      Cinnamon in coffee is SO good!!

  • AmandaM

    So funny! I have also been replacing my products. I use this one from Whole Foods and really like it – the smell is good. I love scented stuff but BAD scented stuff is… bad :)

    I’ve been admiring these Nike drip-fit tanks for a while. I think its time I get one! And I have also tried natural deodorants which not much success. I will have to check this one out, thanks! Have a great weekend!!

    I think I love everything in this post! I will have to try that deodorant, I’ve been using men’s old spice cause at least it doesn’t have aluminum in it.

  • Katie Wadley
