Friday Favorites #1

All the things I’ve been loving recently in my first edition of Friday Favorites. Five of current my favorite things from food, fitness, family and just life!

I’m frequently asked about the products I use, the brands of foods I eat, my favorite workout equipment, or what I like to make for breakfast. So I’ve decided to create a Friday Favorites series to talk share my favorites. Every month, I’ll take a look back at the things I’ve loved… new finds, favorite meals, go-to items,  favorite workouts, or anything that just made me smile.

These sunglasses are so cute and come in a ton of different colors. And the best part is they’re only $17.99! I used to love designer sunglasses, but I hate the feeling of losing/scratching/breaking such expensive pieces of plastic. I’ve purchased 5 pairs of these sunglasses already (and lost 2) in rose, purple, and pink and LOVE them! The style, the color, options, and matching Lindsey 😉

I first tried Sun Basket meal delivery after we got back from vacation so I wouldn’t have to worry about shopping or meal planning in the first few days after vacation. I ordered again last week after a long weekend at the lake and it made dinners so stress-free! I get the Clean & Lean menu (they also have Paleo, Carb Conscious, Pescetarian, and many other specialized diets) and love getting clean, organic, and healthy dinners my whole family loves. And most can be prepared in 25 minutes or less!

I actually forgot to skip a week, so I had a surprise order arrive on Monday. Luckily, I had put off grocery shopping over the weekend so it was a welcomed surprise! These pork chops with sweet potato mash were mouth-watering!

This fabric resistance hip band is amazing for sculpting glutes AND it’s portable. I’ve been packing this up every weekend to take to the lake for a quick workout without needing much equipment. Unlike rubber resistance bands, this fabric resistance band has tons of resistance and doesn’t slip or roll. Plus, it’s under $15 on Amazon (even has an extra $1 off coupon) with free same-day Prime shipping.

I scored this SuperGoop! sunscreen as a Prime Day deal and I’m so happy I did! I previously thought SuperGoop! was too expensive for sunscreen but it’s absolutely worth it. I love that it has a high SPF without smelling like sunscreen or some overly floral/tropic scent to mask the sunscreen smell. It just smells clean and fresh without feeling greasy so I can wear it every day (just like the name). But the best part is that it doesn’t sting my eyes when sweating. 

Side note of something that makes me smile: my little one is obsessed with lotions and creams, so she’s always sure to ask for sunscreen before going outside. And her cute little 2-year-old pronunciation of sunscreen is currently: “come-skeem.” It makes me laugh every single time!

Ever since going on vacation to Paris and Amsterdam this spring, we’ve been obsessed with espresso. And after I bought a Nespresso machine for George for Father’s Day, he couldn’t live without one at the lake. So he bought this Nespresso Vertuo machine that makes both coffee and espresso. I usually don’t drink espresso during the week, but it is SO nice on weekend mornings. I love to enjoy a 5 oz. pod mixed with a scoop of collagen peptides while watching the sunrise over the lake. It’s the calmest and most relaxing moment of the day… usually for about 5 minutes until the kids wake up and find me LOL!


Have you tried any of these? What are a few of your current faves?
