The Friday Five

Happy Friday Five!!!!

1.  With the cold and dark mornings, these Nike Epic Lux Flash tights are perfect!!!  I love the all-over reflective dots!

2.  Earlier this week, my girlfriend Christi Beth recommended Mindy Kaling’s new book “Why Not Me?”.  I immediately read it and loved it!  It’s the perfect light and witty read!

3.  I have been using this Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Masque twice a week and love what it’s doing for my skin!  It’s great for your entire face or just spot treatment.

4.  Y’all, this JEN CHOOSES COFFEE mug is the best!!!  You can customize yours by visiting @vkscups.  Each cup is $15 and you can have up to 18 letters.

5.  4 Random Runners Cheered Relentlessly at Rock ‘n’ Roll Montreal!  (Thanks for sharing, Shyla!)

Happy Friday and Choose Joy!

    Love that video…that would be too funny. I have to admit, I would be a bit freaked out, wondering who the “fans” were!

      That’s too funny!

    Those Nike tights are the best! Must have them. I listened to Mindy Kaling’s first book as an audio for my afternoon walk and it was great. Read by her so it was perfect and you really got the essence of what she was saying. Last week I reserved that one you suggest and can’t wait until it’s available! (I do this download thing from the library audiobooks).
    Happy Friday and thanks for the picks!

      Yes, just email your questions and order and then you’ll pay via PayPal!

  • Regina Mcwhirter

    Does the face mask smell bad…like sulfur? Totally enjoyed the video, of the runners what great expression.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      It just smells like a mud mask. :)

    I want those Nike tights!! Aren’t the VK cups the best?? VK brought one to Phoenix for me back in February that says “Mrs. Stamos’ Coffee” because she knows how much I love John Stamos – haha! Andrea Barber was there and texted John a picture of it!! He was like “do they sell those in stores now?” – LOL.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      Ok…that is SO awesome that you have a Mrs. Stamos’ Coffee mug!!!!

      • Jen@milesandblessings.com

        I think it is even awesomer that Andrea texted a picture of it to him!!!!!!

  • Sue Tate

    Those tights are AWESOME. I’ve been hearing about this book a lot lately! I may have to pick it up for the trip to Vegas and lounging at the pool :)
