Friday Favorites: Keep Collective Bracelet Give Away, Macarons, Whiskey Shirt, Man Rompers

Today I am linking up with ErikaNarci , AndreaAmandaBright on a BudgetDella DevotedCup of Tea and By BMG for Friday favorites and sharing with you the things that I am finding Joy in this week.

1) Keep Collective Bracelet Giveaway

Recently I learned about a new totally customizable jewelry line from the company that brought us Stella and Dot called Keep Collective. It's a modern twist on the classic charm bracelet and one of the Best gift ideas I have seen lately. First, you choose your Keeper which comes in the form of a bracelet, necklace, key fob, bag or even dog collar. Now comes the Best part, the charms. They have everything from wine glasses, to faith symbols to engraved items for your initials or favorite inspirational quote. Monograms? Yup you can monogram and if it's not moving I monogram it. What could be Better during wedding and graduation season?  

Now comes the Best part. To celebrate the beginning of summer and spread a little Joy, I am giving away the Joy bracelet above that I designed for my Good Better Best readers using Keep Collective. All you have to do is who tell me your story about who or what brings you Joy

Simply leave me a message in the comments or if you want to share something more privately feel free to send me an email at about your Joy.  Running Daddy and Hockey Guy will then choose the winners. I must have all entries by midnight on Saturday, May 27.

Ideas for those that bring you Joy. Nominate your child's teacher or reading tutor who had gone the extra mile this year. Tell me about your sister who has finally found the Best guy and will walk down the aisle this summer. Do you have Joy in your own life to celebrate such as graduating from law school, making it through a health challenge or walking through infertility struggles? Go ahead, nominate yourself. I want to share in your Joy and I cannot wait to gift someone with this beautiful Keep Collective Joy bracelet I designed. And any of the ideas that I just shared can be Good gifts in your own life should you want to design your own right now.  

Oh and by the way....the Keeper design I chose for you all, it's reversible. Tan leather band on one side (above) and a cute blue print on the other (below) with Joy, palm tree and flip flop silver charms. So it's Good for work or play.

Inspired and ready to start designing your own now? Check out my friend's Facebook page for the Best ideas. 

2) The Sweet Lobby Macarons

Recently my sweet God daughter gave me macarons from the Sweet Lobby in Washington, D.C. I always worry about macarons because I am never sure they are gluten free or not. I mean I know some are but unless I know for sure, I typically do not take the risk. The macarons at Sweet Lobby are gluten free and they are the Best. If you happen to find yourself in the nation's capitol, check them out.

3) Whiskey Flag Shirt

Hockey Guy and I bought Running Daddy this shirt for his birthday last weekend. It says "Every sailor knows when to hoist the whiskey flag...When you run out of rum." What could be a Better gift for him? Summer here we come.

4) New Profile Photo:

This is totally out of my comfort zone to say this, but I am really excited about my new profile photo. Is it weird to say that? Taken by my sister in law who owns Margaret Richey Photography this photo puts the finishing touch on the redesign of this site. No other photo I have ever used for this site looked this Good

5) The Bro/Man Romper:

Can we talk about this for a minute? Because everyone is talking about it. Is this a thing? It should not be. But it gave me a Good giggle this week.

Have an awesome Friday and start working on your nominations for the Keep Collective Joy bracelet! I cannot wait to hear who or what is bringing you Joy!


  1. JOY is Friday night at the Little League field, watching my seven year old play baseball and cheering on his team (the Red Sox!). It seems simple, but it is simply the BEST!
