Fave Finds {6/12/17}


o b s e s s i o n s :

  • Thistle Farms Bug Spray: Bug spray is icky. It’s sticky, smells funky, and is typically full of chemicals. Luckily, I stumbled upon this little cutie at the Market of Hope and I haven’t looked back! Natural, DEET-free, and made from essential oils including rose geranium, peppermint, lemongrass, and spearmint. Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the coolest part! Thistle Farms employs and empowers female survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Love, love, love this company and this bug spray. 
Since I got mine, they’ve gotten new packaging, but it’s the same awesome product!
  • Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo: It’s no secret that I don’t like to wash my hair (do many people LIKE washing their hair? I guess probably not). I basically wear it in a high top-knot 99% of the time, but even still, sometimes it needs a refresher. It’s HOT in Texas, y’all. Like, step outside for three minutes and you’ve got sweat on you brow, hot. For someone who works out outside every morning, dry shampoo has become a must for in-between washes. I love this one because it provides volume, texture, and smells phenomenal. Plus, it’s cheap and you can get it basically anywhere.

totally a sucker for anything grapefruit! 
  • The Minimalist Baker: Okay THIS lady. #GOALS. Incredible recipes with 10 ingredients or less, one bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare. My incredible and sweet friend Lauren turned me on to this gal and I am SO happy she did! Her recipes are healthy, many are vegan, and haven’t disappointed yet. Check out the roasted jalapeno vegan queso or the golden goddess tumeric hummus. YUM!
  • Audio Books: If you have time to sit down and read a book… teach me your ways. Who has time to just leisurely sit around and read? Certainly not I. However, I have about a zillion books on my Amazon wishlist. Solution? Audio books! I listen to them in the car, during solo runs, and while prepping lunch/dinner while the kiddos play. I’ll admit, sometimes I realize I’ve gotten distracted and I have to rewind, but overall, it’s been pretty darn successful. Anyone have a good recommendation for me?! (I love mysteries, parenting books, and anything personal development! I’m currently listening to Balanced and Barefoot by Angela J. Hanscom– highly recommend!)


  • BulletProof Coffee: Probably two years ago, a few girls I was teaching with were putting coconut oil in their coffee. I legit thought they were mental– that sounded so nasty. Well, well, well. Here we are. I’m not only putting oil in my coffee, but also butter! So, I don’t use “official” BulletProof ingredients, however, I think the substitutes I have chosen for coffee and MCT oil are pretty darn close. I wont spend too much time on details (you can read everything about the how and more importantly WHY  here on the bulletproof blog), but I will say that it fills me up right through lunch, makes me feel sharp and clear-headed, and tastes pretty darn tasty for what it is.

    Thank you for the sweet words!! You’re so welcome! So glad you love her recipes so much too! Have you made that hummus? I have it bookmarked but haven’t tried it yet. Her sun dried tomato hummus is my fave

    Books… well there’s All the light you cannot see. Heard it’s pretty popular. 😬 No? Fine. 😂 I like mysteries too! I actually listened to the cuckoos calling by Robert Galbraith (aka jk Rowling) a couple of years ago on audio book. It was good!
