Hey friends!  Wow has it ever been a busy week! We've gotten so much done, and thankfully one of the things marked off on my to-do list is this post! You all know I love sharing my favorite things with you aaaaand there may be a discount code for one of the brands too! Not many things planned for this weekend other than marking more things off of our to-do list (holiday gift guides are also in the works and I'm just a litttttle excited about them), spending time with my husband and kiddos, maybe making some homemade cinnamon rolls, and hoping the weather is nice enough to get a little bit of surfskating in and spend some time outdoors seeing the beautiful autumn leaves that are starting to change colors! What are your weekend plans?

I haven't really added a lot of items so my closet this year, I've actually probably donated of half of my clothes in the past few months because they were just hanging there not being worn and I thought to myself what was the point of having them if they weren't being used. So going forward I've been trying to be more intentional about the items I am adding in. Only adding items that are high quality, even if that means spending a bit more and owning less, buying something only if I truly LOVE it and can see myself wearing it for a long time and not purchasing just because it was on sale for a good deal or cheap or trendy, only adding in the things that speak to me, that make my soul happy every time I wear them and that I actually enjoy wearing! No more uncomfortable clothes, items that are colors I dislike, things that maybe I'll fit into someday, stuff that's are too big for me, clothes that I don't really love as much as I could or hardly ever reach for. One thing I HAVE added to my wardrobe recently is this beautiful and outrageously comfortable piece from IMBODHI! It's the peak of comfort, pretty sure it's illegal in some countries for clothing to be this comfortable (okay, kinda joking about that one haha), but ya get my drift, it's just a super nice, super awesome piece of clothing! It's the Bōdhi Jumper in Oatmeal in case you were wondering, and also in case you were about to ask, yes, you absolutely NEED it in your closet, trust me, I'm pretty sure it's not a want, but a need. Perfect for lounging, running errands, pretty much whatever! IMBODHI likes to call it their "Do-Everything-Outfit" and I'd be inclined to agree, it's the perfect minimalist outfit. Oh wait, you weren't convinced just yet? Maybe this'll do it... it's made from environmentally friendly plant based fabrics (tencel, which is created from eucalyptus fivers)! How rad is that?! You won't need to worry about constantly shedding microplastics into the environment and it's also so breathable for your skin! All of IMBODHI's products are ethically hand cut and sewn by a small team of women in San Francisco, California, AND all of their products are shipped in 100% recycled, recyclable, and reusable packaging! They sell some more beautiful designs too, I know this Lila Romper in Chartreuse is definitely catching my eye! Check out IMBODHI and all of their beautiful clothing HERE!

I'm just gonna say it, I'm literally a fan of EVERYTHING that The Lyfestyle Co. offers. I mean all the things I've tried anyway, buuuut if the products I own are any evidence of how amazing all the rest of their products are, then I'm pretty positive that literally everyone in the world needs to know about them as soon as possible. Take their Beach Mist After Sun Spray for example: during our last trip to Lake Erie, I miiiight have gotten a little bit too much sun. I thought I was fine until I got home and realized how red the back of my legs were (ouch!), literally on fire, so I thought to myself, why not give this spray a try and see if it's all it's cracked up to be. When I tell you this product is what sold me. Within 3 hours of the first spray, my sunburn was 50% gone, done a second spray a little while later and within an hour I'd say it was a good 75% gone. I decided what could one more application before bed hurt... I kid you not, my sunburn (which was pretty bad mind you) was completely 100% GONE the next morning when I woke up. Like are you kidding me, it's such amazing stuff and it's a product I plan to make sure we always have on hand from here on out. Also really loving their 100% Natural Brow Oil, I haven't used it as consistently as I'd like (chalk that up to mom brain and our everyday busy life that has been extra busy as of late) but I have noticed a difference in my brows since I've started using it when I remember (usually a couple nights a week). I wish I would have taken a before photo so I could share an "in progress" photo so you could see the difference, but it's absolutely made a change in my brows that have been a bit sparse since I overplucked them in my early teens ages go haha. The Lyfestyle Co. also sent over this Detox Hair Serum (which is amazing for split ends, dry scalp and color treated hair) and this Refresh Dry Shampoo (which works wonderfully well and the only 4 ingredients are are a legit yessss from me) AND this Bamboo Body Polish that smalls absolutely divine and is perfect for any skin that needs a gentle exfoliation! I of course LOVE that all of their products are all free of parabens, sulfates and harsh chemicals, and are created with positivity and good vibes in mind! Check out their entire collection of lovely products HERE!

Our kiddos absolutely LOVE popsicles (love is probably not even a strong enough word haha)! Personally, I love them too (lime and lemon have always been favorite flavors of mine), but I'm not always a fan all of the ingredients, especially the artificial food dyes (my kiddos always seem to be drawn to the red popsicles and that never goes well), and let's not forget loads of corn syrup that they're filled with (and I'm not even going to mention how each one is wrapped in plastic... oops, I guess I did mention it lol). Thankfully, I have been able to start making some of our own since one of our favorite brands, Zoku, recently sent some super awesome reusable popsicle molds our way! I'm so stoked to create fun and healthier options for the kiddos now that we have these Mini Pop Molds (such a fun shape and absolutely perfect for little hands) and this Mod Pops Mold (absolutely loving these for bigger popsicles). Fill up the molds with your liquid of choice or homemade popsicle mixture, pop them in the freezer and voila you have homemade popsicles! It only takes around 6 to 8 hours to freeze to completion, and both style of molds come with built in "drip guards" for the sticks so you don't have to worry about getting messy while you enjoy your homemade treats! Zoku also sent over this 11 Piece Neat Stack set nesting food storage containers which I am really excited to start using! They are leak proof, dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe, color coded (especially great for meal and snack prep if you're trying to eat healthy) and they also come with a freezer ice pack to help keep your food fresh for longer if you're out and about! A couple of our other favorite Zoku products are these two toned items, this stainless steel water bottle is awesome (I have the Ash color and it's so pretty in real life), love this reusable straw (that comes with a carry case small enough to fit in your pocket or attach to your keychain), and my husband's most favorite, this 12 oz stainless steel tumbler. We have been trying to stay on a budget lately even more than usual and this tumbler has been a lifesaver for him to bring a coffee from home to work so he doesn't have to stop and buy one (it's already saved us so much money). He has a 45+ minute commute everyday to work and he loves that his coffee is still hot when he gets there every morning! Check out all of Zoku's amazing products HERE!

I love drinking water, but drinking something different when you're working out and feel like you're dying just hits different, ya know? I've been known to grab a popular brand of sports drink at the grocery store in the past, and I know, I know, it's full of artificial junk so I've been looking for something healthier to replace it with. Liquid I.V. was kind enough to send some over and I literally LOVE it! It tastes good, is hydrating, hits the spot during workouts, and is actually good for you! What exactly is Liquid I.V.Liquid I.V. is a Non-GMO electrolyte drink mix that utilizes breakthrough science of Cellular Transport Technology (CTT) to deliver hydration and other key nutrients into your bloodstream faster and more efficiently than water alone! I'm all about things that get the job done more efficiently so just knowing that is one of the reasons I'm loving is so much, not to mention the taste! I've tried Pina Colada, Watermelon, Lemon Lime, and Acai Berry so far and all of the flavors have been stellar! Acai Berry is my favorite out of all of them, with Watermelon being a close second! Liquid I.V. is great tasting Non-GMO and is a formulated mix that uses a specific ratio of sodium, glucose, and potassium to deliver water and other essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Liquid I.V. contains 3 times more electrolytes than traditional sports drinks and less than half the sugar and calories too! It also contains 110% daily value of Vitamin C, Potassium, B3, B5, B6, B12.
