#1 Lavender Lattes

If you follow me on social media, you are probably sick of my obsession with Lavender Lattes. But I can’t help it. There is something about them that has me craving them at least twice a week! They’re refreshing, Spring-y and drinking one seems to instantly transport my state of mind to the positive. While they’re just a seasonal offering at all of the coffee shops I’ve tasted them at, I would be totally fine with them being a year-round staple. I’ve tried ones with honey, ones with white chocolate and then some with just the lavender by itself. Can’t say I’ve had a bad one! I definitely prefer my lattes over ice but I did try out Cassidy’s hot version a few weeks ago and didn’t have any complaints. So bear with me as I continue to order them, post about them and enjoy feeling like I’m in the South while sipping on them! ūüôā

#2 Massage Stick

Foam rolling is life for me right now. With my IT band issues and the mileage I’m running, rolling has been imperative for me. I recently got THIS massage stick to supplement my basic foam roller and it’s amazing. The massage option is insanely fabulous and it digs in a little deeper in spots that the smooth roller just can’t hit. Being hand-held also gives me more control over the amount of pressure put on the muscles and it’s nice to be able to chizzle major pain points and problem spots. It feels good to loosen up muscles even if you aren’t sore and I would be content with 60-minute massages daily so since that isn’t feasible, this is my next best option!

#3 Bronzers

I about as far from a makeup expert as one can possibly be. So take these few sentences with a grain of salt! ūüėČ Once my face starts to get a base tan and the humidity percentage rises, the only makeup I wear on my face is an oil-free primer and a few swipes of bronzer. No way do I have time to put on a full-face of makeup {and I’ll admit I have no idea how to put foundation on anyway}, especially when it will end up melting off by noon so my super basic routine works perfectly for me. Every May I research the F out of bronzer options but usually go back to one of my two defaults, THIS Nars option in Laguna or THIS Naked Palette. This Spring I decided to spend a few more $$ and test out the raved-about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick¬†and I can now say the hype is justified. It’s SO GOOD. I feel like I have a nice, sunkissed glow without looking like I just walked out of an orange spray tan booth. Seriously hoping the brand makes this foreverrr. I know it’s on the pricey side for makeup but I feel like I can justify the purchase since it’s touching my face almost daily! If you’re lucky, Nordstrom has been price-matching it and I was able to grab it at 10% off. What are your favorite bronzers?!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?! Isn’t that what we’ve always been taught? I definitely agree with that statement but I’d probably also have to add dogs, champagne and beach vacations to my best friends list as well. Diamond jewelry {ok, lets be real jewelry in general} has a special place in my heart […]

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for TWO YEARS! It is so crazy how fast time flies. So many things have changed over the past two years…there’s been ups, downs, fun trips, a new job, a new puppy and lots of laughter {plus some tears}. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to […]

#1 Chocolate Almondmilk Ice Cubes This is about as simple as it gets but these little guys are game-changers! I’ve been avoiding adding any kind of syrup or sugary substances to my iced coffees in the morning but I haven’t quite found something to mellow out the acidity of my go-to cold brews, until now! […]

#1 Daily Harvest Smoothies If you follow me on social media you are well aware of my smoothie obsession. I get super bored with food so smoothies are the best way for me to get my servings of fruits, veggies, protein, etc. in without having to put a whole lot of effort into meal planning. […]

#1 Peanut Chicken Zoodles I’m always pinning new recipes and seeking out healthy(ish) alternatives to some of Kyle and I’s favorite meals and THIS Peanut Chicken Zoodles recipe was a major success. Usually when I made zoodles I serve/eat them cold but this particular recipe called for them to be heated in a skillet for […]

#1 Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato This Starb’s drink is so good, IMO, that it’s getting it’s own shout out today. It was introduced about a month ago but I was hesitant to try because I’m loyal to my go-to drink and because I knew this would cost me like $12. Then I earned a free […]

#1 RXBARS If you would’ve told me that something with egg whites, almonds, cashews and dates as the main ingredients would taste really good, I would’ve rolled my eyes at you and called you crazy. But then I actually tried RXBARS for myself and now I’m hooked. They’re filling and once you get past the […]
