Friday Favorites (5/8)

Friday Favorites (5/8)

Here are this week’s favorites! As always, I’d love to read about what products, shows, clothing (or whatever!) you’ve been enjoying lately, so be sure to leave a comment. LaCroix Sparkling Water in Coconut The LaCroix website calls this “summer in a can”, and I’d say that is a pretty accurate statement.  It is supposedly also a really good drink mixer, so I need to get a jump on that soon!  I’ve been drinking a can of it every evening (without alcohol) while I am making dinner, and it somehow takes...

(Visit The Mini Skirt for my mommy favorites.) Happy first day of May! I am so glad that many of you enjoyed my post about natural cleaning methods and products.  If you’d like to see more posts like that one in the future, I’ll be more than happy to deliver. As for this week’s favorites, I have food, fashion, beauty, and entertainment, so let’s get to it! Burt’s Buzz MT was away on business earlier in the week, and I figured it would be the perfect time to finally watch this documentary. I cannot go into too...

Friday Favorites (4/24)

Friday Favorites (4/24)

Happy Friday! I have some beauty, fitness, home care, food, and fashion favorites for you today, so let’s get started…   First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 This was a gift from my friend Michele, and I really owe her for introducing me to it.  A lot of sunscreens don’t absorb well into the skin and give off that Casper-ish white cast. This one absorbs right in, and the bonus is that is doubles as a moisturizer.  It doesn’t make my face at all greasy, yet it is...

Vitacost haul (food, skincare, & condiments)

Hello! I placed one of my weekly orders to Vitacost a few days ago, and since my box arrived today, I figured that I’d share what was inside. (Side note: I just subscribed to a farm delivery box for things like eggs, milk, and cheese since we go through those things quickly in this house with the kids.  I’m so excited about it and cannot wait to show you what we get!) Eden Organic Black Beans I’ve been loving beans lately in salads as a good source of protein, so I decided to stock up while they were on sale.  I cannot...

Non-Toxic Beauty Brand Spotlight: Earth Science Naturals

Non-Toxic Beauty Brand Spotlight: Earth Science Naturals

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  I purchased all products mentioned below with my own money, and this post reflects my true opinions about them.)   I was doing a little product inventory in my bathroom over the weekend and realized that I use an awful lot of things by Earth Science Naturals.  It’s no wonder being that it is such an affordable brand (especially since I usually order my products from Vitacost).  In this instance, inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap quality.  I continue to go back to the brand because...

5 ways to fight the aging process in the spring & summer

I celebrated another birthday last Wednesday which is probably why I have the subject of anti-aging on my brain. While using certain creams, managing stress, following a healthy diet, limiting alcohol consumption, and not smoking can all help to slow down the aging process (or at least allow us to age more gracefully), there are some other non-surgical things that we can do to combat wrinkles. The 5 tips below can apply year-round, but they are even more crucial during the warmer months of the year.   1.  Always wear sunscreen. We all know...
