Hello readers! Today I wanted to share with you all some of things in my life that I am currently loving. These are things I reach for every single day and I just can’t go a day without them.
Food / Food Related
At this point in my life, my health and taking care of it is so important to me. So it makes sense that many of my favorite things are food related.
Meal Prep Containers. I love these containers that I got from Walmart. They make meal prep and portion control very easy.
Hydro Flask. I used to always have be a Yeti girl but I became really attracted to the Hydro Flask brand because of the variety of colors they come in. My favorite ones to use are my 32 oz bottles that I have in the color lilac and the other in frost. A major downfall to these, though, are because they are so big they don’t fit in normal cup holders for your vehicle. It’s not really that big of an issue in my truck, as it has a large open compartment. But my husbands truck is a little less forgiving and I either have to tuck it next to my hip or let it sit on the floor and pick it up every time I forget it’s down there. I have yet to have the lid leak on me from the numerous times I’ve knocked them over even though the straw lids are claimed to not be leak-proof.
Dunkin’ Cold Brew. I bounce back and forth from having coffee or a smoothie in the morning on my way to work. For a while, I seemed to be stopping at Dunkin’ Donuts for an iced latte almost every single day I worked. Since I started keeping a food journal, I really noticed how those calories added up. So lately I’ve been on the hunt for a “healthier” alternative (even though coffee isn’t really that healthy). But lately I’ve been loving Dunkin’ Cold Brew that I get at Weis Markets. It’s 60 calories for 12 oz which is doable for my diet without having to restrict my food for a treat……. If that made sense.
Cotton Candy Grapes. I first heard of these while watching Sara Rae Vargas’s vlog channel on YouTube. I had to search for these forever it seemed but I finally found them at Weis Markets. Expensive AF but so worth it because not only do I love em’ but so do my husband and step-daughter. Do they taste like cotton candy? I assure you they do!
Lemons. Okay, is it weird that I have this listed as one of my favorite things lately? If it is, oh well. I love the taste of lemons. I love the smell of lemons. I love their bright color (Okay that’s me showing my weirdness again). I make lemon water every night to have first thing in the morning and it is the perfect thing to start off my day. I read somewhere that it helps jump start your metabolism for the day, which I am a-okay with. I also use fresh lemons to make homemade lemonade, which I sometimes mix with passion tea by TAZO. Honestly, that drink is fast becoming one of my favorites. I think it’s a thing at Starbucks? I’m not sure, I’ve never been there.
Vitamin C Serum by Mario Badescu. I went into Ulta about a week or two ago searching for anything to remove dark spots from acne scarring and I walked out with this. The directions say to use it every other night, but sometimes I use it a few days in a row. It’s definitely reduced most of my scarring, especially the darker ones that I’ve had around my jaw line. If you have acne, you know what I’m talking about.
Enzyme Cleansing Gel by Mario Badescu. This stuff has really made a big difference in my beauty routine. Adding the serum with this (obviously using one and then the other) has decreased the number of breakouts I’ve been getting since I started using it. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed and I love the smell. I mean, it smells like a soap bar, but I love it.
That is it for my current favorites. It is quite a bit, so thank you all for reading and I will catch you in the next post!
