My Favorite Activewear

A friend asked me the other day for suggestions on workout gear, and it really made me start thinking about my favorites.

There are still other brands I’d like to try, but right now, I definitely feel like these are an upgrade from what I started with. I’m only including products I actually use. I have a long wishlist of stuff I want to try, but these mentioned are my tried and true.

January 2017 Favorites

I can’t believe January is already over! I have this weird thing with the passage of time, though. Shane gives me a hard time because I freak out over little things, like the fact that 1990 was almost 30 years ago, or the fact that almost all the kids born in the year 2000 are in their junior year of high school now. He says, “Yeah, babe. That’s how time works.” He’s pretty laid-back and doesn’t give too much thought to these things. Whatever. Regardless, here we are, with one month of 2017 already under our belts, and I’ve got some fun things to share with y’all. Let’s do this!

2016 Favorites

This year I’ve made quite a few “favorites” lists, and I’m really glad I did. I love reading favorites lists because it usually encourages me to try something new, or it gives me insight on a product I wouldn’t have otherwise bought for whatever reason. Continue reading “2016 Favorites”

Fall Favorites: 2016 Edition

You guys! Can you believe it’s that time of year again? I’m so excited to do another favorites post, because I have quite a few things to add. If you want to compare this year’s to last year’s here’s the link to the old one. I’m not even going to make this intro super detailed because I’m THAT excited!

April Favorites

It’s that time again! I thought I would have put this out sooner, but time got away from me (as usual). For what it’s worth, it’s not as late as usual!!

Kuumba Made Persian Garden Fragrance Oil
I saw this in a YouTube video and had been looking for it for awhile before I finally found it at the Whole Foods by my job. It smells sweet, musky, and ambery. All scents that I love. Just smelling it brings me joy. It’s a little roll-on bottle, so I just keep it in my purse and put it on when I’m going somewhere or need a mood boost.

TOMS “Be Inspired” Canvas Slip-Ons

My new Be Inspired TOMS.

I love me some TOMS. They aren’t cheap, but considering how comfortable they are and the good that the company does, they’re worth it. And I promise you that I get my money’s worth. I wear those suckers out. When I was shopping online for some basic black ones, I found these ones on clearance and knew I had to get them. They are perfect for me and the message I’m constantly trying to give myself.

Samsung Galaxy S7
IT FINALLY HAPPENED!! I finally got my new phone!! You guys don’t understand how long this has been coming, and how hard I worked for this. I am so proud of my phone and I love it so freaking much. It’s the best phone I’ve EVER had. Funnily enough, Shane’s work phone is an iPhone 6 Plus and he still says he’d rather have a Galaxy S7. It IS the best smartphone on the market. πŸ˜‰

Starbucks Coffee Frappucino
How crazy is it that I’d never had one of these before? To be honest, I didn’t even know they existed before a few months ago. I had one last month and it is SO good. I’m not a huge frap drinker because of the huge amount of sugar in them, but this is one I can imagine myself having plenty of over the summer. It’s the perfect combo of coffee and sweet for a frap.

Snapchat Filters
I know this seems like a silly one for some of you, but I was not able to do any filters on Snapchat before this month. My phone had so little memory that I couldn’t update the app to get them. It wasn’t until I got my new phone that I was finally able to do filters and they crack me up. I don’t usually post most of them to My Story; I’ll just save them and text them to Shane. HAHA!! Good thing we’re married because he’d be so uninterested in me after some of them.

Nivea Creme
I know this is a staple for a lot of people, but I didn’t really discover it until about 2 months ago. I brought my little tin (that I’d gotten in a favor from a baby shower) to work, and have been using it religiously. It somehow magically disappeared recently so I bought another one and am so thankful to have it back.

And one disappointment: St. Ives Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask
I don’t exactly know what I expected from this, but it was just a gooey, sticky, gross mess. It didn’t make my face feel nice during or after and it was so hard to get all the way off. Luckily I didn’t spend my own money on this since I got it in a St. Ives Voxbox from Influenster. By the way, if you aren’t signed up for Influenster, you need to be. The boxes don’t come regularly and they don’t have a cohesive theme for all of them, but you can get some seriously great stuff in them and it’s ALL FREE!!
