Greetings! Like the new face lift? It was time. I wanted to
clean it up a bit. Much like my life. Anyways, the weather is being
straight crazy today as yesterday it was 70 and today it’s snowing.
When will it end?! So while I’m stuck inside I figured now was a great
time to post on some of my new favorite things/awesome things I’ve
Ok. Gin isn’t new but my love for it is. I love the fresh christmas
tree pine that it brings to my drink. I have become and avid gin
drinker. I love it. I personally love it with a little ginger beer and lime.
Gin Gin. I love gin.
I’ve loved coconut oil for a while. Mostly for cooking and baking
purposes. But recently I’ve been covering my body in this stuff
before bed. I love putting it on my face and I’ve noticed a difference
in my skin in just a week. My breakouts have cleared up and my dry spots
are non-existent. The change in the weather here has been a bit harsh
on me but I’m getting used to it. Now I just have to get used to
my bedding smelling like a Ms. Hawaiian Tropics pageant.
The luxury of living out here is having ample amount of trails in a
one hour driving radius. I invested in some new trail running shoes
and love getting on the trails for at least an hour of running. Which is plenty
of time to make sure my quads will remember this run tomorrow morning.
Some of my favorite spots so far are Spring Canyon Park and Horsetooth
Reservoir. I’m sure I’ll hit up some of the Wyo spots once the weather
NEW BALANCE TRAIL RUNNING SHOES
I am a New Balance or Brooks kind of girl. I need a wide toe box
and a lot of running companies aren’t doing that. My toes need room to
expand when my foot hits the ground. Otherwise, my feet fall asleep which
is another problem in it’s own. I love these shoes because I have plenty
of room, they are light and the tread on the bottom is beautiful.
Oh- and I admit the color options are fun.
If you know me, you know that I like to try to eat a plant-based diet.
I’m not perfect. I fight the battle of vegan and evil pretty often. I want
to be a full-fledged vegan but sometimes I find it hard to commit. I watched
this documentary and remembered why I make the food choices that I do.
Why I make an effort to eat more of a plant-based diet and why it works
for me. Even if you aren’t into creepy eating, the documentary is really
well made and pretty informative.
SOLE SOCIETY’S STACKED HEEL WEDGE
I ordered these bad boys the other day. I’m obsessed with the thicker
straps on heels and a wedge is always great because I don’t look
like I might teeter over at any moment. Oh- and these make my legs
look so fly. Can you dig it?
So these are a few of my favorite things as of late. What’s on your list?
