Happy Friday loves! I am so ready to get this weekend started! This was the first full week I have worked in ages. Between Taylor’s end of school activities and my Sister visiting I have taken a day or two off every week. This one that consisted of five days felt like a lifetime. I cant wait to relax, enjoy some brunch and NOT commute into NYC. Continue reading
Does anyone else hibernate all Winter and then Summer comes around and you decide you need to get fit IMMEDIATELY? I am currently in that situation. We had such a long, cold Winter and I spent a lot of it laying on the couch and eating all the Cheetos. (#SorryNotSorry) Now, it is warm out and I have the option of a) working out or b) buying a whole new wardrobe. My wallet votes for a!
It’s okay though because the Sunshine inspires me to exercise and feel good! I don’t want to be cooped up inside. The days are longer and I want to spend all my free time biking, walking along the boardwalk and going on adventures.
The folks at BabbleBoxx sent me an amazing package last week filled with goodies that are helping me feel fab for Summer and I am so excited to share them with you!
The first things that I spotted when I opened my BabbleBoxx were these gorgeous 2(X)ist ombre work-out leggings and cotton tank! Pink is my favorite color so I was very excited to see them tucked in there with a matching black top. The leggings are stretchy and soft and when I wore them to the beach to jog I had two different people stop to ask what brand they were. Both pieces were very comfortable and breathable. The tank top is 100% cotton and the leggings are made of moisture-wicking fabric and they have a hidden zip pocket to stow your keys. One of my favorite details is the mesh panel on the back of them over your calves.
Village Naturals Products
After working out (especially when you haven’t done it in a while) there is nothing better than a luxurious soak. Village Naturals products are perfect for relieving pain from sore muscles! Their formulas are concentrated and therefore fast-acting, so you’ll instantly feel the benefits!
I love that they’re available locally at stores like Walmart, Target, Kroger and Walgreens.

Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme
I am a total beauty product junkie so I squealed like a little girl when I found a bottle of Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme in my BabbleBoxx! I love Vichy’s products and I have been looking for a good serum to add to my beauty regimen. I dabble with Retinol a few months ago and it did not go well. My already dry skin was a mess and I had to discontinue use. One of the active ingredients in this serum (Rhamnose) is known as a more gentle alternative to Retinol, especially for those with sensitive skin. I have been applying it for a few days and I think I can already see a little bit of a difference!

Tree Hut Shave Prep Body Scrub
Now that the warm weather is here and the legs are out it is the perfect time to pamper those gams! Tree Hut’s Shave Prep is perfect for that. It contains essential ingredients like Oat Kernel Oil, which helps relieve skin irritation, and Avocado Oil to help keep skin moisturized.
It keeps all the red bumps and ingrown hairs at bay and leaves your skin soft and smooth.
Vita Coco Coconut Oil
Not only am I a blogger, I am also a blog reader. I love to scroll through my Bloglovin’ feed and check out everyone’s posts. This past year there have been a massive amount of articles that include coconut oil. It is a huge trend right now and can be used for everything from cooking to beauty treatments. I was ECSTATIC to see this jar from Vita Coco in my BabbleBoxx! One of my favorite ways to use it is as a deep conditioner. I apply a bit to my hair while it is damp and then hang out with it in a shower cap while I clean up, watch TV and do laundry. Afterwards, I shampoo my hair twice and it is super soft!
Have you guys tried any of these products? What are you doing to prep for Summer?

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel my best when my skin has a nice glow. I think a beautiful tan makes you look healthy and youthful. Unfortunately, Mother Nature gave me pale (almost translucent) white skin. Years ago I went to tanning salons or baked in the Sun but now that I am older (and wiser) I would never do that. I get a spray tan periodically for special occasions but one of my favorite ways to have some color (especially for the Spring/Summer) is to use a moisturizer with a bit of self tanner built in. For years, Jergens products have been my favorite. They sell them at Walmart (so I can pick them up while I am doing my weekly food shopping) and they make my life so much easier since the beautiful tan they provide makes foundation obsolete. Today, I am sharing a glowing Summer makeup tutorial. Read on for more details and pictures. Continue reading
