Happy 1st day of Summer! To commemorate this “hot” occasion, thought I’d share what I’ve been enjoying so far these warmer months in the areas of food, beauty/body care and techy stuff. I’m sure I’ll continue to consume or use these products throughout the summer season and will probably discover new ones as well. Hopefully, you find this useful and get to try some of these awesome products out yourself. If you do or if you’ve already been enjoying any of them, please do tell.
> Silk Iced Latte – this stuff is sooooo good and good for you. I used to buy Starbucks iced latte’s but opted to replace it with this soy milk version instead. Not only is it easier on my wallet, it’s healthier too. It’s a bit strong for my taste though so I add skim milk to it…it’s perfect that way! It also comes in Mocha flavor.
> Tazo Tea – I’m seriously addicted to this tea but I have to temper myself, it’s not cheap at $1.50 per bottle. It’s not the healthiest beverage but it’s a better alternative to soda.
> Candy Crush – confessing my addiction to this app; I’m on level 50 and am so frustrated that I can’t advance, and I refuse to pay for additional lives, etc. If you have an addictive personality (like me), don’t download this app.
> J.Crew iPhone case – I’ve become one of those people who switch out iPhone cases from time to time. I used to have one case for the longest time, then I discovered how much fun it is to change them out..this one puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.
> Nature’s Gate Whitening Toothpaste – best ever toothpaste; because I’m a tea and coffee drinker, I need a whitening toothpaste and this one is my favorite (all year round actually) because of its natural ingredients and no bad stuff.
> Shea Moisture Lip Balm Trio – another natural alternative to the usual petroleum product laden stuff out there. Love the Olive and Tea Tree the best…keeps my lips moisturized without any unnecessary ingredients.
> Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Foaming Milk Body Wash – this stuff smells and feels amazing; the whole bathroom smells like a tropical paradise after my shower. And of course, no bad ingredients.
> Neutrogena Blotting Sheets – for anyone with oily skin, this is a must have in your purse…gets rid of the gross oiliness instantly. I stock up on these whenever I’m at Nordstrom Rack.
> Maybelline Tenacious Teal nail polish – this nail polish color is soooo pretty and the name, come on…tenacious teal – I had to try it. The only negative is it contains the 3 bad ingredients that are usually in nail polishes (dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde and toluene). If you know of a dup to this color in the 3-free brands like Essie, Butter and Zoya…please let me know.
> Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne – this was a mother’s day present from the hubs…so in love with this scent..perfectly light and summery. Sometimes, I spritz it on just because it makes me smile. And when you take off your clothes at the end of the day, oh my gosh, smells so good!
Please do share your summer faves/treats so far. I’m always ready to try new things, especially if they’re from a natural line. That’s it for now!
