Well I’m a little late to the game, but its favorites time again. I seriously can’t believe its July already. Summer is in full swing and I’m in the home stretch of my internship! Since I spend the majority of my time at my internship, most of my favorites this month include products/foods/activities that save time or make things a little less stressful.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream– I really do love the act of doing my makeup in the morning, but when I have to wake up in the 5:00 hour I want getting ready to take as little time as possible. This BB Cream is so quick because it applies easily with your fingers. I also really like it because it give a little bit of coverage, but looks pretty natural. Plus it has SPF 30, but isn’t too oily.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream– This moisturizer is seriously the best. It feels really light on my skin and also smells like I just bit into a cucumber. I have fairly oily skin to begin with so I’m picky about mositurizers because I feel like a lot of them tend to leave an oily layer on my skin. This one sinks right in and feels light and refreshing.
Greek Gods Honey Vanilla Yogurt– I wore myself out on overnight oats and egg muffins for the first 10 weeks of my internship, so now I’ve moved on to yogurt and granola. I’ve been buying a large tub of this Greek Gods Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt and dishing it out into little to-go containers throughout the week for breakfast. Then I just add some granola when I get to my internship in the morning. I don’t know why I love the flavor of this yogurt so much but it just seems to amplify the delicious flavor of any granola I put into it, so I’m a fan.
Graze Box– I recently wrote a blog post about Graze box, but it is definitely a current favorite of mine. I’ve been getting it every two weeks and the snacks are the perfect single serving to add to my lunch box. Plus I feel like it saves me a lot of time and money to have individual servings of snacks, rather than having to buy a bunch of different snacks. The variety keeps it interesting as well.
Blogilates– I’ve been doing Blogilates workouts for a few years now sporadically, but I’ve been doing them a lot more often recently. Incase you don’t know, Blogilates is a Youtube channel with a bunch of different pilates based workouts. Casey has a lottt of energy (sometimes a little too much, so be prepared) and her workouts always get me sweating. Lately she has been really into HIIT workouts, so her videos are only 8-10 minutes long, but she suggests you repeat them 3-4 times. These workouts always come in handy when I either can’t motivate myself to go to the gym, or am feeling really motivated to work out but also just want to spend time at home. Her cardio based HIIT workouts tend to be my favorites.
Orange is the New Black– I may have binge-watched about 2 weeks later than everyone else, but I binge-watched just the same. I wasn’t sure what to expect after quite a lack-luster season last season but I have to say, this show came back with a bang. I really enjoyed this season. They brought up a lot of very real issues that really made me think. I would definitely suggest watching for anyone who may have fallen off the Orange is the New Black bandwagon last year.
