What I’m loving lately

I apologize in advance for all of the beverages I’m about to mention.  I didn’t realize it until I wrote this post, but apparently, I’m a very thirsty person!


May favorites


Zevia soda

Even though I craved it when I was pregnant, I normally never drink regular soda.  (You can read all about how I kicked my habit here.) Still- drinking water can get boring sometimes (even when I flavor it with fruit), and I do like some carbonation sometimes.   I love drinking Zevia every now and then because it doesn’t contain sugar or artificial sweeteners.   The Dr. Zevia flavor is my favorite, and it reminds me of Diet Dr. Pepper.  Boy, was there a time when I could really put away some DDP!


Supergoop! SPF 30+ Everyday UV Face and Body Moisturizer

Thanks to frequent walks with the baby, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the sun lately.  I obviously lather his pasty white skin up with sunblock, but I protect my own as well.  I love Supergoop! because it is oil-free, light, and doesn’t contain parabens, oxybenzone, or fragrances.


Chocolate chip cookie dough Larabar

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Larabar.  My all-time favorite flavor has always been the cashew cookie, but I’m really into the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor lately.   It is delicious and made with only four ingredients (dates, cashews, chocolate chips, and sea salt).  I’m still on the hunt for the pumpkin pie one though!


Barefoot Riesling

Yep.  I’m totally digging cheap wine that you can find anywhere from Total Wine to CVS. Sure, I love an expensive red now and then, but there is something so refreshing about a glass of Riesling on a hot summer (or spring) night.


Desert Essence Organics Hand and Body Lotion in Coconut

This vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free lotion is super moisturizing, and the coconut scent is so perfect for the summer.  I cannot apply this stuff without sniffing the bottle first- mostly because I’m weird but also because it smells so good.


Synergy Kombucha

It took quite awhile for me to get into kombucha.  In fact, I hated it after trying it for the first time.  For whatever reason, I decided to give it a second chance a few months ago, and now I’m a major fan.  I still don’t like the original flavor, but I love all of the botanic flavors a lot.   By the way, kombucha has some major health benefits.  It aids digestion, detoxifies the body, and helps to boost immunity.


Coconut flour

Since purchasing coconut flour last week, I’ve been using it like mad!  It tastes so great on chicken and vegetables, and I cannot wait to experiment with it some more.


ZICO chocolate coconut water

On Friday, I mentioned how much I love Zico chocolate coconut water, but it kind of has to be mentioned again.  I cannot get enough of this stuff!


Watching old episodes of The Hills on Apple TV

This one is really random, but I’m so into watching Lauren Conrad, Heidi, and crazy Spencer after Michael has gone down to sleep for the night and I’m cooking dinner.  It is hard to believe that the show first aired seven years ago already!


What are some of the things you’re loving lately?

Have a great day!

    I’m going to have to try that zevia, I’m a soda fanatic!

    • I think you’ll love it! I didn’t care for the Ginger Ale flavor, but I have liked all of the others that I have tried.

  2. Amen to Supergoop!

  3. Sheena

    I LOVE Dr. Zevia! The Root Beer and the Cream Soda are yummy too!

  4. Love Supergoop–and The Hills 😉

  5. Oh gosh, I LOVE watching old episodes of The Hills. Ha. I also love all the Zevia flavors, even grape!

  6. I have that same conditioner and am obsessed with Zevia too–I love the grapefruit one!

  7. Thanks so much for sharing – love that you threw in a bottle of wine too! My Top 3 lately are Mountain High Honey Yogurt, Hazelnut Coconut Milk for my morning cup of joe, and my fruit salad of fresh fruits everyday for lunch. Happy Thursday:)

  8. You have such great taste! I love almost everything you listed! I gave up soda 4 years ago, but 2-3 times a year I get the urge to have one so that’s when Dr. Zevia comes in handy! Love that stuff!

  9. I still haven’t tried kombucha, but I did recently try Zevia. I’m still undecided about it though.

    • I wasn’t sure about the Zevia the first time I tried it actually, but I found a bunch of flavors that I really love. The cola and ginger ale ones were not good, in my opinion.

  10. I LOVE Larabars! Fedora and I got a SodaStream so we could drink carbonated water, which we seem to enjoy much more than plain water. And Kombucha is awesome….I want to get a mother and brew my own sometime. Great choices!

    • I’d love to brew my own too! A few of my friends do it all of the time. The SodaStream sounds so cool. I keep hearing about it a lot lately!

  11. I love the sound of all of these products, I’ve not seen any of them in the UK though <3 xx

  12. Hi! Frantic Mama is now following your blog through the Happy Kids Inc Bloglovin Hop! I really like your “things I love section!” I love larabars too– the peanut butter cookie one is my personal favorite.

  13. I love coconut water in general and was surprised by how much I enjoy the chocolate coconut water also. Oh and I love the barefoot riesling though I cant seem to find it in NY!

  14. I’ve been taking a lot of walks too (and totally got my tan-on today!!!), so I hear ya on the sunscreen/good lotion!!! And so funny about the larabar, because cashew cookie was my bar I took on my walk today, but I also love the cookie dough or the peanut butter choc chip is another fave!!!!

  15. Okay
    1. I’ve heard so much about the Zico chocolate flavored coconut but I’ve always had an irrational fear about trying it (no idea why). But I think I’m gonna try it! I mean if this many people love the stuff it has to be good!
    2. The Hills is my go to! Still obsessed with that show!!



  16. Lovely post. I really want to try the Zico because I’ve seen it a lot on instagram lately. I supposed it’s limited to the USA only 🙁


  17. Wow… love your blog! Newest follower here. I was hoping that you might stop by and follow me back if you like what you read!

    Have a lovely weekend,

  18. I love Zico but never heard of the chocolate kind. I will need to search for it now :). Thanks a bunch for sharing with us at My Favorite Posts SHOW OFF Weekend Blog Party!
