Hi from Cabo San Lucas, friends!!
If you don’t see me much in the next week it’s because I’m trying to unplug a bit, but I did want to share my monthly favorites with you so here they are!
Q-Band Fitness Tracker – I’ve mentioned before how obsessed I am with walks these days (and podcasts while I’m on them!) and the folks over at Mobile Action were kind enough to send me their new Q-Band fitness tracker! I don’t have a Fitbit or anything to compare it to, but I love that it gives me a more accurate step count without needing to always have my phone on me (for the Health app!). It also holds a charge for basically ever, which is awesome!!
I Heart Keenwah Quinoa Puffs in Sea Salt Truffle – Ok so in all honesty, and don’t hate me for this, I’m not really a chips person…like I like them and I will absolutely shovel in an entire bag in 10 minutes if it’s there, but I don’t actually buy them for myself. Or savory snacks in general, really. But! Sometimes you just need something salty, even if you have a raging sweet tooth, know what I mean? These quinoa puffs are so damn tasty and only 120 calories per serving – there are 3 servings total in a bag (they’re big!) so I tried to split my bag into snacks for 2 days, but it was probably more like 70/30 😉
Summer Peaches – Apologies for the less than stellar desk photo, but is anyone else obsessed with peaches? I literally can’t think of anything better than a juicy peach, especially when it’s hot AF outside. The only issue is that they’re really only good during the summer season, so you have to really stock up and kind of OD on ’em. I splurged for farmer’s market peaches a few weeks ago and have been dreaming of them since we ran out!
Santa Barbara Bar in Coconut Almond – You know me, forever a bar girl 🙂 I brought this one to the beach because it didn’t have any coating or chocolate on it to melt (that’s the worst when it makes a mess and you don’t have any napkins to clean it up). It was the perfect mid-morning snack and had a hint of sweetness and coconut, but not too much. I also liked that it wasn’t super dry like Nature Valley or Clif bars!
Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant in Lavender + Sage – So I was in the market for a natural deodorant for a looooong time because the thought of putting a bunch of chemicals right near my lymph nodes (and deodorant has been directly linked to breast cancer, ladies!). I did a bunch of research and it seems like if you switch straight from regular to natural deodorant it won’t work to prevent an odor (which, let’s be honest, is something i seriously need), so I did about a week of detoxing where I didn’t wear anything at all. It must’ve worked because my Schmidt’s has been amazing so far. No smell or anything, not to mention that there are zero white marks on my clothes and even when I’m sweating, no sweat marks show up. Super important!
Alright y’all that’s it for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Happy 4th of July!
