MONDAY MUST HAVES

Happy Monday friends! Life is busier than ever and I don't find time to show up here as often as I'd like (working on that), buuuuut I wanted to pop on and share some recent favorites! But first, what we've been up to recently! We are one day closer to our move (not sure when it is yet but sometime in the next 6 months) to South Carolina and we are counting down the days with crazy excitement, I joined Beachbody and it has changed my life! I'm not saying that lightly, I'll probably share a full post on that soon, but just gonna say, if you're tired of feeling tired all the time and are ready for a change, Beachbody might be for you too! If you need an in or want more info, I got you girl! (Just send me an email or message me on Instagram and I'd love to share more). We've been staying outside as much as we can now that the weather has gotten warmer (today is rainy and cold but it's been so nice lately), skateboarding a tonnnn (finally nailed that rail grab after almost a year of skating and it was the best feeling! We've taken lots of trips to local parks which the kids love (the giant sandbox at one of the nearby parks is Bodhi's favorite), Bella has been drawing lots of awesome pictures (she drew the raddest photo of me on a skateboard on a half pipe for my birthday gift). Oh yeah, I turned 27 last week, still not sure if I feel older or the same, but I'm grateful for another rotation around the sun with the people I love. Easter was fun, I shared the kiddos Easter baskets in my Instagram stories and if you didn't catch it, I decided to go with an ocean theme and I am still so happy with how they turned out. Anyways, enough of that, who's ready for some favorites?!


Okay, so I'm literally so stoked about this brand, Carly Jean Los Angeles has been one of my favorite clothing boutiques for ages, so I may or may not have fan-girled out a little bit when they agreed to send a few pieces my way to add to my closet and to share about with you guys! I've been wearing the pieces for a couple months now and I can say that without a doubt that the quality is amazing and the pieces are also comfortable and so effortless to style. The Logan skinny jeans they sent are favorite my go-to piece, I actually love wearing jeans and I wear them almost daily, these fit perfectly, run true to size and are so stylish. I usually throw them on with a solid colored tee, my checkered vans and a necklace. On chilly days I love pairing them with this stinking adorable "California Dreaming" pullover (also can be found here in grey) that I am absolutely obsessed with. I love that the sleeves aren't your average sweatshirt sleeves and these are fun and feminine, the neutral color is kinda right up my alley, plus it give me that California surf vibe and you know I'm here for it. Lastly they send this Ellie Floral Tiered Midi Dress that I LOVE (found here in mustard and here in taupe)! It's a completely different style than I've normally ever worn but hen I saw it on their website I fell in love. I wore this dress recently on a date day when my husband and I went to Phipps Conservatory and since I knew we were going to be doing a lot of walking I wore some white sneakers with it and they complemented each other so well. I plan on adding a few more CJLA pieces to my wardrobe this year since I'd like to  create more of a capsule wardrobe and their pieces are such staples.



Sometimes late night etsy browsing leads to finding the coolest things, that was what happened not too long ago. I probably was typing in shaka art or surf d├ęcor or something along those lines and the absolute raddest piece of art ever popped up! This little Shaka hand sculpture from Mark Koenig Sculpture, he's a California based artist who obviously makes some pretty cool stuff. I mean, if you're going to live the stoked life, why not let your home reflect that and be stoked too! I seriously cannot wait to decorate our new home when we move later this year (we have no idea yet when, but when we do, things will probably move pretty quickly) when we move to South Carolina. I plan to keep a beachy bungalow, modern surf shack vibe throughout our new home and this is gonna be the raddest addition to a bookshelf or my nightstand! Grab your own shaka right here!



Bella and Bodhi like most kids absolutely LOVE play dough, but I'm not a fan of some play dough brands because, I mean, what is even in that stuff anyway? I mean, while they do play wit traditional play dough sometimes, I much prefer other brands who actually tell you more about themselves. I've had my eye on the coolest playdough ever from The Land of Dough for awhile and I was able to include some in their Easter baskets this year.  Their dough cups are really unique and completely safe for kiddos, not to mention they are eco friendly! The combination of all that really brought it all home for me. They're crafted from all natural ingredients, the colors are plant based (say whaaaaa!), all of the glitter is COMPOSTABLE (yasssss), they are scented with essential oils (and not artificial fragrance made up of a million toxic ingredients), they come in eco friendly packaging, come in the most fun designs AND they are hand crafted right here in the USA! If that all didn't get your attention (or maybe it did) you can read a little more about them here). This mermaid lagoon and sand and sails play dough are perfectly adorable and I love this rad over the rainbow dough cup! I can't wait to use this learning numbers kit to work with Bodhi for number learning (he knows some numbers and can count some but more learning can't hurt haha). They also come with the cutest little wooden scoops and I fully plan on swiping one for our laundry detergent when the kids aren't looking hahaha.



Who needs a good pair of shoes? I mean, besides me, like literally everyone haha. Merrell is a brand we really love and they recently sent us some goodies to add to our shoe collection (not that I really have that much of a collection, I own like maybe 9 pairs of shoes lol). Their brand is outdoorsy and they carry a lot of sustainable, eco friendly styles so they fit right in with our lifestyle since we like to stay active. We love hiking on the weekends, I workout at home every day plus I love skateboarding in my free time, my husband has to walk a lot at work during the work week, so it's important we both have good shoes in our life. My current favorite pair of shoes are these MTL Skyfire Undyed Shoes, they are literally are a cloud like hug for your feet. I wear them every single day when I exercise and I love how supportive they are throughout my entire routine whether I'm doing cardio, Pilates, running, leg day... I haven't found any reason to dislike them, only more and more reasons to love them! They can even be dressed up to go with a pretty dress like I wore recently! These barefoot shoes (women's vapor glove) are another favorite of mine, I actually also have them in aqua and have worn them hiking all over and I love how i can feel the earth better with the thinner soles so I can keep better footing while climbing on steeper areas. I love this grey color and I discovered they're also pretty nice for skateboarding in addition to hiking, walking, running and everyday errands. My husband got this pair of Men's Trail Glove Leather shoes and he loves them, they're also the barefoot style and he said he couldn't get over how comfortable they are!



I've shared about Yogasleep before, but I can't help but share about them again because they truly are not only a favorite item in our home (and have been for YEARS) but we also pretty much cannot function without them haha. No seriously, we use them every single night. Every evening, when I flip the little switch on our dohm natural sound machines and the soothing sound starts, it signals the beginning of our bedtime routine and sleep coming soon. It's the perfect way to gently ease our kiddos (and ourselves) into sleep mode, and the way it covers up noise from outside our home is amazing. Very rarely can we hear things like cars and neighbors and all the noises that can come from outdoors when we turn these on. Having that constant and calming sound helps us sleep so much better. It's still so funny to me how that my husband had one of these sound machines when we first got married and at first I was like "oh my goodness I hate this so much, do we have to sleep with this noise on?", which then quickly changed to "oh my goodness I can't sleep without this and where has this been my whole life" haha. It honestly is a game changer for good sleep. Grab yours here!



I shared about these necklaces from Bela Co. Jewelry recently on my Instagram, not only are these necklaces absolutely stunning, but they're so special as well, since one is mine and the other is Bella's. I love that I can match with my girl, we are both sun seekers and love being outdoors as much as we can, soaking all of the healing rays of sunshine into our skin. We live for sunny days and skateboarding in the sun and beach days in the sun. Sun Sister, Sol Sister. These necklaces when joined together complete the circle of the sun, they are the perfect pair of necklaces for you whoever fills your life with light! Maybe it's your best friend, maybe your sister or your mom, maybe your daughter! We absolutely love that they are made in small batches with the highest quality metals here in the USA (in Tennessee). They are life approved, which basically means you can put them on and forget about them. They are made to be worn, so no worries about them getting damaged by elements or wearing them constantly. They are even water safe which we love, love, love! Grab your set here for you and your sol sister! Use JOYFULTRIBE at checkout for 15% off from now until Sunday!



Have you tried Public Goods yet? I first was drawn to their minimal and aesthetic branding hen I saw it several years ago on Instagram, I loved their simple look but especially loved their minimal and natural ingredients in all of their products. I'm going on almost 2 years now of using their shampoo and conditioner and still absolutely loving it and the way it makes my hair feel. Not to mention, their products are seriously affordable! I'm always looking for good deals since we are a single income family and I have been blown away at not only the quality of their items but the prices. Want to know how much a bottle of their shampoo (which lasts forever btw) is? $4.50! That's all! I love that they keep future generations in mind as well since a lot of their packaging is environmentally friendly! I love buying this $11 shampoo bag to refill my shampoo bottle, and their refillable real silk dental floss is unmatched, nothing else works as good on my teeth! Their bamboo toothbrushes are priced great ($4 for a set of 2) and brush awesomely. I also picked up this crystal deodorant spray to give a try, loving it so far! If you haven't tried any Public Goods products yet, check them out here and use my code JOYFULTRIBEPGA to get 15% off your first purchase!
