Hi friends! I’ve been wanting to start this new series where I share five of my favorite things in the beginning of each month but I blinked and it has been five months into the new year already. 🤯 Starting now because BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, am I right? Each month I’ll share five things: food, drink, exercise, item to wear, and of course a favorite of Pop’s. Continue reading because I cannot live without any of these right now!
Food- This might not come as a surprise but the NEW Birthday Cake Perfect Bar. Like what?! I’ve been obsessed with Perfect Bars since 2012 and they keep getting better and better. Packed with 20 superfoods and taste like birthday cake cookie dough. Nuff said.
Drink- Not sure if you look forward to my cold brew pours as much as I do each morning but my new favorite concoction is a dirty chai cold brew. Made with Majka’s new Vanilla Chai lactation booster, Stumptown coffee turned into cold brew with my Ninja Hot & Cold Brew maker, Ripple unsweetened vanilla, and Four Sigmatic lions mane. Blend on high for 45 seconds and pour over ice while listening to some vibey tunes.
Exercise- Want to make your abs cry? Then I suggest doing TRX pikes. TRX pikes help you build a strong core by challenging your balance and stability, along with your abdominal muscles. You can adjust the intensity of the exercise by how big your pike is. This exercise also works your upper body for things like handstands, which I have never done. Maybe I’ll work on that next!
Item of clothing- My Made by Mary Birth Flower necklace. This one is my most favorite out of the bunch. When I saw Made by Mary announce that they were launching Birth Flower necklaces I thought that would be cute to get for Poppy’s birthday month (August). When I saw that August’s birth flower was a Poppy I actually lost my cool and knew I had to have it! I ordered mine first thing the morning of launch day and counted the days until it arrived. I never take it off!
Poppy item- There is nothing cuter than watching Poppy eat. Seriously, NOTHING. I did an Instagram Live last week and I think we could have all sat there in silence while Poppy ate her sweet potato pure. Her cheeks chomping on food, dead. But since Poppy is only eating more and more solid food we decided that her Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair had to be her most favorite item right now. It not only looks cool but she can use it until she’s three years old! The chair grows as she grows and that’s a game changer for us.
What are some of your favorite things right now? Any foods you love or drink you can’t go a day without?! Comment below because I need some ideas for next month.😉
