Things I’m Loving Lately Summer Edition!

Every time the seasons change it seems that there is a whole new set of things I’m loving.   My food shifts a bit, my workouts shift, my clothes change and sometimes even my bath products change.  Obviously the weather has every thing to do with these changes and now that summer has arrived I’ve shifted yet again.  I thought I’d share a few things I’m loving on these long, hot and humid summer days!

New workout gear from Lucy. 

I’ve reviewed some of their stuff before and loved it so when they asked me if I was interested in testing some new products I jumped at the chance.  They sent me the Worth the Weights pants and tank.  I really liked both.  The pants are really light weight, just like the Breeze on By Crop they are perfect for a cool summer morning.  The Worth the Weights tank is ultra supportive and perfect for any type of exercise.  I’ve been wearing it on runs, to barre and for yoga.  The real thing I’m loving about Lucy though is their sports bras.  There was a mix up in one of my orders and I ended up shipping something back.  Last week a gift card for the value of the item arrived in the mail.  I headed to my local Lucy store and decided to get a few new sports bras.  They were having a big sale so I was able to get two of them with my card.  The bras are ultra comfortable and extremely supportive.  I feel like this is a rare combo, anyone with me here?  I got a more supportive one for runs and a fun yoga one with cool straps for yoga and barre.  In the summer I wear looser workout tops and have to wear a sports bra with them, in the winter I tend to opt for the style with built-in bras. So needless to say my new bras have been getting a lot of wear!  I love them!

Lightweight tanks and tops for warm summer days. 

I’m a huge fan of tanks in the summer and much prefer them over t-shirts.  I recently replaced a few of my older summer tops with new ones from Ann Taylor Loft.  They had a great sale and I was able to score 5 new tops for $50.  A super good deal if you ask me.  The tops are really soft and comfortable.  I’m so happy with them!

Smoothies for days. 

Warm weather makes me crave smoothies.  I’ve been drinking them regularly for months now but I couldn’t leave them off the list!  I love stocking up on local greens at farmers markets and the like for them.  There is nothing like fresh spinach, kale and lettuce in a smoothie! I like to add mango and pineapple in the summer for a refreshing twist.  I also recently started adding a little plain greek yogurt to them.  I love how thick it makes them.  The other bonus is that they also fill me up more!

Shea and Cocoa Butter Baby Oil.

I bought a bottle of Johnson’s Shea and Cocoa Butter Baby oil awhile back.  I had read it’s more moisturizing than lotion so I wanted to give it a try.   It was the middle of a cold, dry winter and my skin did not love the switch.  Now that it’s warmed up a bit I decided to try again and I love it.  It feels lighter than lotion and I feel like the more I use it, the more moisture my skin has.

Zoya Nail Polish in Summer Shades.

My mom turned me on to Zoya and I love love love it.  It’s free from nasty chemicals and much better for your nails.  I ordered a few new colors and love them.   I’ve been digging Blu and Whitney.  They are perfect for digging your toes in the sand!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box.

As you know, I’m a POPSUGAR Ambassador.  As part of the program they sent me their June Must Have Box to check out.  I’ve seen boxes like this all over and was curious as to what it was all about.   As soon as I knew it was arriving I was really excited and couldn’t wait to see what was in it.  It was really fun to try out some new products.  I’ve been loving the lotion that came with it and the wrap is super cute on cool summer nights!  Actually, I felt the box was everything you’d need for a day at the beach!  The boxes seemed like a really fun way to treat and surprise yourself each month!  I’m thinking I might sign up for this as soon as I become a Mrs.  Until then I’ll be putting my money towards the wedding.  For those of you who aren’t planning a wedding you should check it out and use code JUNESELECT10 to get $10 off a 3-month subscription.   The code is good through June 30, 2014.  And in case it wasn’t obvious, POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.
