Friday I'm in love: Sunnies, Iced Tea, and Coconut milk iced cream

Happy Friday! It has been two weeks since leaving my YTT at Kripalu and I can say I am in a much better place mentally and physically.  I have been working with a team here in NH and am grateful to be on the right track towards balancing my body.

Here is a quick look at what I am loving this Friday!

  • Diff Eyewear.  The styles of sunglasses fun (affordable!) and creative... AND for every purchase, they donate a pair of eyeglasses to rural Africa.  Check them out here:  http://www.diffeyewear.com/
  • Suntegrity "5 IN 1" Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen-Tinted.  In the past year I have made conscious decisions to move towards a green/non toxic beauty routine. Having fair (and slightly sensitive) skin, I wanted to move to a natural sun care routine that provided protection, and also was non toxic. I am also not a very heavy make up wearer, especially in the Summer. This brand was rated #1 by the EWG/Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database and was featured in EWG's Best Sunscreens category from 2013-2016.   I was able to find it in a local store in Portsmouth, NH to try it out.  I love the product and have been using it for almost 3 weeks now.  It is a little pricey, but considering your skin is one of the most important organs, I think it is important to care for it thoughtfully. A little goes a long way, and I have not had any breakouts from it! Also you can buy sample sizes on their website which is even better if you are not sure what shade (I am using "light") or how your skin will react.  They also carry non tinted sunscreens.

  • Trader Joe's Coconut Milk Ice Cream: in BOTH flavors.  I was grocery shopping for the week and there in the sample corner was the sign for dairy free coconut ice cream.  Well of course I had to sample (they were offering samples of the strawberry & chocolate).  They were delicious.  Into the cart they went...I mean how good do strawberry and chocolate go together?
  • Herbal Iced Tea: with lots of lemon! Something about the hot and humid weather has me craving sipping on some delicious iced tea.  Make a large batch in a pitcher and grab some fresh lemon slices.  Beware the pitcher may go quickly :)
