Happpppyyyy Friday y’all! We made it finalllyyy! This has been a LONG week. My daughter is starting day care on Monday so we have been doing daily visits to the centre since Wednesday, to prepare her for her full day on Monday. With the daily visits, also come long lists of things to buy and send and that part has not been fun. We also had the main floor of the house painted last weekend, so the whole week whenever I have had time, I am trying to put it back together in terms of decor but with fall in mind. Some pumpkins may have snuck out of the basement.. in AUGUST! But, the weather is changing and you can definitely feel the chill in the air in the mornings and evenings. And..Pumpkin Spice is almost here (September 5 is the OFFICIAL release date at starbucks… yesss i googled that!). So anyway… that has been our week: daycare prep, “back-to-school” shopping, painting and fall decor.
This week I wanted to share this AMAZING new tea I discovered. I usually have some green tea before bed to help me go to sleep as I am one of those people who has trouble falling asleep unless I am EXHAUSTED. This chamomile tea by Tetley has been doing wonders for me since I purchased it last week (this is not sponsored, just I am in love with this tea!)
Next up… I shared this on my Instagram stories (follow along for some fun behind the scenes!) – I am going back to having smoothies as breakfast in the morning and wanted some protein incorporated into that. Let me tell you – I have NEVER tried a store bought protein powder in my entire life. So I had no clue where to start… My friend, Sam (who introduced me to yoga, almond milk and some other healthy options several years ago) recommended I try this recipe:
And let me telll you guys- ITS SO FREAKIN’ GOOD!! I have already made two batches and its super versatile. I did not have any sunflower seeds at hand, so I simply left them out. You can change proportions as you like based on your preferences and the best part is, you know exactly what is in them! I love that about this.
And lasttt but not least, I wanted to share my newest favourite addition to my night time skin care routine! This Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate came in my Fab Fit Fun Summer box and I kind of lost it in all the stuff – does that happen to you? I recently rediscovered it while cleaning out my room and all the crap that piles up! And I have loved it since then! I put it in both at night and morning and honestly it has made my eyes look less tired.. because trust me I am not getting very much sleep (too much stress, life etc). So this has definitely been helping! If you are in the market for a new skin care product and don’t know where to start, I highly recommend this! And it is relatively inexpensive compared to some other eye serums in the market. Also.. I have loved it SO much, I have lost the lid LOL
Those are my top three picks for this week and if you happen to have tried any of these or will try them, make sure to leave me a comment below! I love hearing from y’all!
