WE ARE BACK with Five Things Friday Part 21! Happy New Year to you all. Ironically this is part 21 for 2021, ha. Check out all our previous Five Things Friday here!

2021 won’t magically change things but it is always nice to have a fresh restart.

Have a look below as we share our favorite five things for this week. We know it’s random 🙃 but we feel there’s something for everyone!

new year and five things friday part 21!!!

Before we get into anything beauty related, I, Eva, am on the edge of my seat to share this small-space laundry rack with you!

*remember, click the underlined text and/or some of the pictures have links to be taken to the product

Wall Mount Laundry Rack

Eva here – my husband found this!! Go Nicky G!

We got this because our washer and dryer is in the basement, and we have a very small basement that acts as laundry, kids play area, and fitness area. It’s crazy we can cram so much in a small space BUT we really maximize it to the fullest with shelves and racks like this one!

I LOVE how this rack looks on the wall first off, but more importantly I love how it’s sleek, folds back in, and only takes up a tiny bit of space when I need it to.

I don’t dry my fitness clothes (for obvious reasons) and so we really need something like this. This helps lay the clothes “flat” & drape them over the wooden rods, and also helps prevent my leggings & sports bra from losing their shape.

Total must-have for laundry if you have an open area like we do. We love it, and love the look!

Handheld Steamer

Before we get into the fun beauty stuff, ha, Dawn here to discuss this cute handheld steamer.

I’m not a big fan of ironing, probably because I SUCK at it! Lol! So in my opinion using a steamer is faster and easier than ironing.

The Conair hand held steamer is perfect for all types of fabrics, linens and drapes. It comes with three different attachments: fabric brush, creaser, and soft cushion brush. The water tank is removable and easy to refill.

Conair handheld steamer, better than ironing!! friday part 21!!!

*Note: it’s best to use distilled water. 

It has two heat settings with dual heat technology: high heat and turbo charged steam to remove deep wrinkles fast. Kills 99.9% of germs, bed bugs and dust mites.

I keep my steamer in my bedroom closet for quick touch ups that give my clothes a polished look.

L’Oreal Collagen

I (Dawn) don’t use this product all the time. For instance, I use it when I feel my skin needs an EXTRA boost. I have those days where my skin looks and feels just dry and saggy, thanks to menopause and being almost 55! 😱

I feel like this hydrates and plumps it up.

best cheap COLLAGEN!!!! for your face. friday part 21!!!

Sometimes I wake up and have a crease in my face from my pillow case (even though I use silk!) I use this and it gets the lines out. It also helps to restore my skins elasticity.

L’Oréal Collagen is only $8.98. Great price and it lasts a long time. Also available at Walmart.

Short & sweet review on this one but it really works, you can’t beat the price, and honestly wanted to keep it brief. 😊

Crest Emulsions

Eva – This is OK. Truthfully, I was sold on this teeth whitening product through an IG ad and found it on Amazon. In full transparency, I have a Chase Credit Card that has Amazon rewards points, and I used some of my points to get half off. I didn’t want to pay full price. lol.

You really do get a lot of product for the price. The applicator is ehhhh – it’s cheap-y. Dawn agrees – she’s not fond of the applicator because it doesn’t feel like good quality. Not to sound bratty but this kit is $50! (but since you get so much product for the price, who cares about the applicator? lol)

Anyway – I got this because I really don’t like using trays; I want a quick fix and I want to add the product to my teeth and go on my merry way. Definitely agree with the claim that there is NO sensitivity issues! Woohoo, that is a win (the crest strips kill my teeth)!

I have only been using it a week and I don’t even want to share a before & after pic because there is NO DIFFERENCE! lol. I will update you all in like a month…but so far.. not sure it’s worth the price.

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

Dawn here~This product is my secret weapon.

When my face is looking pasty white this is my go to self tanner. It gives me a subtle healthy glow.

Easy to use: mix a few drops of the Clarins Radiance Booster to your moisturizer then apply to face and neck. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly afterwards. This can be used daily or as needed to give skin a light tan without looking streaking or fake.

clarins radiance booster. works great for a pick me up in winter!! friday part 21!!!

So if you are having the winter blues and need a pick me up give this a try.

Have you tried this?!?! I can’t be the only one doing this 🙃

So that’s it for Five Things Friday Part 21!


YOUR FAV COUSINS!!!!  friday part 21!!!
