Random Favorites

Spring Shoes

I’m trying something new and sharing a “random favorites” video today! They aren’t beauty products, but they are things that I want to tell you about, so I threw them in this random favorites video.

The products mentioned:

Gap Tencel jogger shorts

New Balance sneakers

mason jar

Try Graze for free w/ theΒ codeΒ SPRINGSNACK13

 

Hope you enjoyed this change up from the usual video πŸ™‚

 

*Graze sent me 2 samples for free as a part of my collaboration with them within this video. Since snacking I decided to sign up for the subscription service because I loved it so much. So while it was a sponsored mention, I’m now a customer.Β

I’ve been eyeing those shorts and may need to order! If you like Graze, you may want to try out the Simply Balanced snack boxes at Target. They’re quite a bit cheaper at $3.79, no nasty chemicals, and they have a couple varieties. My favorite comes with banana chips, almond butter, craisins, a fruit strip, and cashews.

I love the shoes, for their cuteness factor, but I can’t decide what I would ever wear with them. I have a hard time pulling off cool too. Even if they go with everything.

Laurie says · 04.28.15

Loved the random favorites!!! And I have to say I would never have thought to buy those shorts because I would assume they ride up. Now I know they don’t and will have to get myself a pair! Thanks for the tip πŸ™‚

Your videos only get better.

Sneakers. So glad you think like that too! I bought and returned three pair of Converse this spring. I just can’t pull it off. I’m a tried and true Tretorn girl. So comfy.

Shorts. Um, yes, to junk in the trunk and thighs touching. Shorts nemesis. I might have to try those shorts. They look awfully close to ones I had in the late 80’s. Not kidding.

Kate, you are hilarious. Must plan a girls’ night at Jenna’s. She and I keep talking about it. Action needed.

Oh my goodness! This was a great way to end my day. Such a fun video. i loved your facial expressions and your dry humor in this. Thank you for admitting that your thighs touch – who does give a crap…besides those bragging about the thigh gap! If I was not a huge fan of yours prior to this, I would totally be a huge fan because of this video! Such fun!

Reply
Jackie says · 04.29.15

This was such a fun video!! I love your ‘random favorites’ and would love to see another one πŸ™‚

Amanda says · 04.29.15

hey Kate! My daughter and I met your sister and David at the grocery store last week! Very funny seeing them out in “real life”! She was very sweet and David was a cutie!
Re: shorts: I am also a huge fan of the Loft curvy skinny fit jeans, so we probably have similar body types. I swear by their shorts (with the 6″ inseam). The don’t ride up and are very comfortable. Long enough for thigh coverage without being too long. I have a ton of them. Thought I’d throw that option out there for you.
See ya around the Teeter perhaps! πŸ˜‰

You. Are. Hilarious. I loved this video and definitely want to see more “random favorites” videos in the future! And P.S. I just had a baby 6 weeks ago and still only fit into my maternity jeans. My thighs touch too, and yesterday I was mourning the fact that the cooler Texas weather is leaving us, and I will have to don a pair of shorts too. So thank you for introducing me to those GAP shorts. I will have to go get me a pair. πŸ™‚

Loved this video, Kate! I always think your videos are fun and entertaining but I laughed out loud a few times on this one. (Mostly because I can totally relate on the thigh touching/shorts issue.) Keep them coming, please!

This was one of my favorites of all your videos. And I know you’ve got readers from a lot of different walks of life, but I’m a 29-year old mom of four little ones, so I am so appreciative of quick, easy, and casual beauty ideas. Thank you for that!

Just wanted to stop by and say I really enjoyed this video! So much that I looked into purchasing a tumbler from the Masonbar company. I started a cart this morning and found a 25% off code on their Instagram! This took about $8 off of my order! The code is mothersday2015 I ordered a cuff and mason jar with colored lid and straw for under $25!

Thanks!

I like the random favorites video! I have been getting graze boxes for a while and really like the service. It helps to have the variety of snack options. The flapjacks are my favorite : )
p.s. graze has no idea who I am for all of the readers who wonder if this is sponsored.

I loved everything about this post, but the best was just laughing at your delightful humor. Being a mom can be so RANDOM anyways, so as I’m stuck in the house with my two kidlets it is great fun to laugh with you over your random favorites and thoughts. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
