We are back with another little round-up of things I really love right now. One of the things I love most about running a blog is that element of discovery and sharing… finding cool new things that I really love, with the hopes that you guys will love them too! So without further ado, here are 5 things that I won’t (for lack of a better word) shut up about.
one // First up is Hook & Albert! They make CHIC travel bags but what makes them so special is that the bags unzip so that when you lay them flat, you have a garment bag. BRILLIANT. To me, this bag is especially great for a weekend wedding getaway where you want to pack everything in one bag but also have hanging items. Voila – a bag that holds it all! This is an amazing invention.
two // Girlfriend Collective. Oh my god you guys, this is big as up until now I almost only wore Outdoor Voices and RARELY wore color to the gym, to the point where my friends teased me about my all black and grey ensembles.
While in Sweden, my friend Danielle had the cuuuuutest powder blue outfit on. I got the details from her and immediately placed an order while I was still in Sweden. When I got home, the comfiest , cutest outfit was waiting for me. The fabric is so soft, and I love the color! So the clothes are amazing but then I learned more about the brand and loved them even more. First, the inclusive sizing (everything is available in XXS – XXXL), and second the, the fact that every pair of leggings is made out of recycled water bottles! (You can learn more about their process here, but I just think that is so, so cool.) My personal favs are the high-rise leggings and the Topanga bra.
three // A collapsible water bottle. I got this water bottle in a gift bag at an event and am just so obsessed with it! If you travel frequently, you will love this- it barely takes up any space in your suitcase and then boom, there you go… it expands to a full size water bottle when you get to your destination. This came in so handy when I was in Sweden for my yoga retreat!
four // My Soda Stream. Okay this is so so random and definitely not anything new but I will talk to anyone who will listen about how much I love my Soda Stream, mostly because I can’t believe it took me so long to get one! I drink a LOT of seltzer and was feeling very guilty about all of the cans I go through. I use this almost every day now and feel slightly better about the amount of bottles and cans I go through every week.
five // Summer Fridays Overtime Mask. Mmkay I was/am obsessed with the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. It’s probably in my top 5. SO GOOD. This one is just as impressive but whereas the Jet Lag mask is incredibly nourishing, the Overtime mask is perfect for sloughing off dead cells and impurities. They make a pretty great double-masking combo. Use this one first to exfoliate and then hydrate with the Jet Lag mask afterward!
