It’s another sunny day and all this beautiful weather is super boosting my mood lately! I’m coming off a great weekend that involved a day date with Josh, stopping by some of my favourite local stores and restaurants/cafes, a great visit with my mother and step father, beginning a new week of my 5 k training plan, cooking all sorts of yummy food to get us through the week (or at least most of it), and catching a Sunday evening movie. I almost need a break now that the weekend is over to recoup.
I always knew I wanted to share some of my favourite things on the blog but was trying to figure out how to do it. I wasn’t wanting to do it every week and when I did share, I wanted it to be several things at once…..so I decided on “Things I’m Loving Lately”. These posts will pop up from time to time when there are a number of things that I’m crushing on and want to give some love to! I would of course love to hear from you guys in the comments section if there are things that you’re loving right now and want to share!!!
Things I’m Loving Lately
I heard about the health benefits of kombucha for a LONG time before I ever gave it a try. I even have friends who make it but that still wasn’t enough to get me to give it a shot. Finally one day I saw GT’s Kombucha and decided to give it a shot. It was love at first sip. While I’ve been drinking it for some time now, the selection at the grocery store where I live isn’t all that great. Occasionally I stop at the bigger/better stocked grocery store that’s about an hour away and this week when I took a stop in, I picked up the “Guava Goddess” flavour. I can’t get enough of it (and as you can see it’s Riggs approved as well).
Moonsnail Soapworks Soap
Moonsnail Soapworks is a cute little local shop in Charlottetown, PEI. They make handcrafted soaps and all sorts of other bath and body products (I get their facial bars, face cream, bath salts, facial oils, lip balm…). This week I picked up some new soap while I was there and the “Spearmint Swirl” is seriously giving my mornings an added kick start!! It’s so refreshing and summery!!
Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology
Josh and I have been drinking Shakeology for about a year and a half. Since I can’t have dairy we have to stick to the vegan formula. For whatever reason once we started getting the chocolate flavour, we never strayed from it. A couple weeks ago we decided to try the other vegan flavour (there are only 2 vegan options) and Tropical Strawberry is a hit!!! Such a nice change!! I’ve been loving it blended with frozen tropical fruit, avocado, and either ground flaxseed or chia seeds. Yum!
Lululemon Rest Less Pullover
I knew I was going to need a good quality, long-sleeved running shirt for getting out and hitting the pavement this spring. Last year I kept getting cold and wasn’t wearing moisture wicking fabric so I’d end up sweaty and then even colder. When I came across the Rest Less Pullover I thought it looked like just what I needed. Now that I have it I don’t have enough great things to say about this shirt! I love the feel of material, I love the length of shirt (I have a pretty long torso so most shirts are too short), and my absolute favourite part is the length of the sleeves!!! I love shirts with thumb holes but usually find the sleeves too short to comfortably wear them that way. The length of these sleeves are perfect for someone who has monkey arms like me.
QUESTION: What are you loving right now??
