I am starting a new series on the blog called Friday Favorites. Each Friday I will share 5 products/things that I am currently loving and give a review of why I love each one. The things I share could be anything from a clothing item, beauty product, to some type of food or even a book.

- The first item I will be sharing today is Birch Benders Paleo Pancakes. I mentioned in this previous post that I recently have cut out dairy and gluten and I have been on the hunt for a good breakfast option to replace the oatmeal I used to eat for breakfast. I stumbled upon these Paleo pancakes at Target and figured I would give them a try. The taste is AMAZING and the texture is exactly like a real pancake. These pancakes are so simple to make, you simply add water to the mix and cook for a few minutes. I use a sugar-free syrup like this one.
2.The second item I’m sharing today is Garnier Fructis Micellular Water. Does anyone else find removing make up a huge pain? I hardly ever wear eye make up but when I do I hate the removal process. It doesn’t come off easily with water alone and most eye makeup removers leave behind an oily residue. Well I have found a better way to remove not only eye makeup but the rest of your make up as well. I always like to remove my make up and then wash my face with my cleanser to get it completely clean. The micellular water easily removes your makeup and does not leave any residue behind. I simply put a little bit of the micellular water on a cotton round and wipe my make up right off, no need for harsh rubbing and it will not burn your eyes. I have also tried the L’oreal Micellular Water but I prefer the Garnier brand more. 3. The third item is another food item, the GFB, Gluten Free Bites. As mentioned above, I have recently removed dairy and gluten from my diet. I am a huge snacker and was looking for something I could snack on that would satisfy my sweet tooth that was also dairy free and gluten free. I stumbled upon these Gluten Free Bites at the grocery store one day and gave them a try. My favorite is the dark chocolate and peanut butter flavor but they have a number of other flavors you can try as well. Not only do these satisfy my sweet tooth but I am guilt free afterwards as well. 4. I can’t leave off one of my newest obsession’s, Fake Bake’s Tanning Lotion. I have written a post comparing several different sunless tanners and what I liked about each one here. My aunt was the one who actually gave me a bottle of the Fake Bake lotion to try and I have been hooked ever since. I have rebought it several times since. I like how quickly the color shows and that it is more of a bronze color than an orange color like some other sunless tanners. It is super easy to apply and I have not had an trouble with streaking as I have with some others. Fake Bake also comes in a mousse and a spray version that you can try if you prefer it over the lotion. 5. I’ve recently ordered a couple of pairs of tennis shoes and fell in love with this Adidas Running Edge Lux pair. I was looking for a pair that was comfortable and a neutral color that would go with anything. I had previously ordered a pair of the Adidas Running Alphabounce EM and loved the way they felt so I decided to go with another pair of Adidas. This pair is super comfortable and is currently on sale for under $80. I have worn them for weight workouts, running, and lots of walking the dog. I have been very pleased with the feel of these sneakers. One thing I would advise when ordering Adidas is that they do tend to run 1/2 size to 1 size big so I ordered a 1/2 size down and they fit perfectly. I would love to hear what thing you are currently loving. I would also love any recommendations on other products to try that you may swear by.
