Hey hey, happy Friday & happy JUNE! I’m definitely excited about this month as it includes another trip to Cali, the official start to summer, and my birthday! ☀
Before we get the weekend started, I want to share a few things that I’m lovin’ lately.
First things first, breakfast. I stumbled upon these paleo toaster waffles at Sprouts, and I’m obsessed. I’ve been trying to reduce my grain and sugar consumption (yet again) in order to heal my gut, and these are surprisingly good. I don’t typically crave savory breakfasts, so a couple of these topped with nut butter, sliced strawberries, and hemp seeds is my new favorite way to start the day… with collagen coffee of course.
Another recent food find is this Deep Dark Blackout Organic Chocolate by Alter Eco®. While I’m trying to reduce (key word) my sugar consumption, I still enjoy breaking off a piece of a quality dark chocolate bar on the daily. This bar is ridiculously smooth, buttery, and flavorful! It’s definitely a new favorite, and I hve tried a lot of 80+ percent cocoa dark chocolate bars.
This isn’t anything revolutionary, but I’ve been all about roasted potatoes. It helps that I finally figured how to cook them to perfection: cut up into fairly small pieces, toss in avocado oil + Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasonsing, and roast at 425F for 45 minutes. A hot oven makes all the difference.
I can’t help but laugh at this one as I reminisce of my 16-year-old self and distressed Abercrombie & Fitch jean jacket that was a staple in my high school wardrobe… but, I recently found some cute finds at both A&F and Aerie (American Eagle). Thanks to killer Memorial Day Weekend sales, I scored a few new pieces for summer that were affordable and will probably last me another 12+ years. ?
Lastly, I announced earlier this week that I am now offering customized skincare consultations as a Beautycounter Consultant. This is an individualized skincare consultation that allows me the opportunity to tailor specific Beautycounter product recommendations to fit your unique skin care needs. This complimentary service is for anyone who is interested in Beautycounter – whether you are a past, current, or prospective client.
