Good morning!!  I’m really excited about today for no reason at all.  I’m a dork like that.  Anyway I wanted to share some of my current favorite things.  Some are new to me, some are just products I use almost every day and I just dig. 
Like Pro Compression socks.  I not only wear them for recovery post run, I rock them at work as well.  They are so comfortable and I love the little arch “lift” while on my feet all day. 

Fun fact: I have them in several fun colors + designs, but the plain white are my favorite.  I’m trendy like that.

The Pro Compression sock of the month is Big Dots.  I think they’re perfect for a 4th Of July race!  Score yourself a pair with coupon code BRD for 40% off plus free US shipping.

I’m stoked to try out some of their new gear so I just ordered these and these.  Anyone else have them yet?

I am also loving the Nuun Energy line big time!  I want to hug whoever had the genius idea of taking an hydration drink I already love and spiking it with caffeine and B vitamins to get elecrtolit.

So far I’ve tried the Lemon-Lime and Cherry-Limeade and they both have the super cool SCB seal of approval.  Major bonus points because I can’t really taste a difference between the regular Nuun and the Energy line.

A trick to get the tabs to dissolve faster is to put it in a little room temperature water then add cold water and ice.  This was another lesson learned the hard way hence the below pic.  It’s a good thing I never claimed to be mart.

Bam + I do not want you to buy this white cheddar popcorn from Trader Joe’s so we can have it all to ourselves. 

Remember the tin cans that come with 3 flavors of popcorn around Christmastime?  I always claimed the cheese flavor back then, but the TJ’s is wayyyyy better.  And most likely made with better quality ingredients.

Awhile back I talked about how much I love the dermalogica  oil free matte facial sunscreen <-seriously worth every penny!  I rock that stuff every day and will be morning the loss of my first bottle when I run out.

Since I practically live outdoors and don’t particularly dig the leather skin look, I figured I’d try their daily defense sunscreen + after sun repair line.

This ain’t your drug store sunscreen {or price} but it is heavenly.  Yes, I went there.  It goes on smooth without that gross greasy feel, lasts since I don’t have time to reapply while I’m at work and doesn’t smell like sunscreen at all.  It’s fragrance free, but has a very light, clean scent.

The after sun repair balm is fantastic if you OD on sun or accidently burn your fingers while ironing.  I’ll take it as a sign I should never iron again.  Winking smile

But yes, I really did use it after burning said fingers and it took the burn + sting right away. 

It has a clean, light lavender scent which is also calming, plus a tiny bit goes a long way.

Fresh strawberries from Whole Foods!!  I have no idea how they do it, but I swear they have the best tasting store bought berries ever. 

I’m very excited to try out their in store fresh pressed juices.  Have you tried them yet?

It’s your turn to share your current favorite products!

Anyone have a gluten free recipe I can put these lovely strawberries to good use with?

  1. I need some more PRO Compression socks in my life! The only pair I have has a hole in them and that makes me sad 🙁 I am really loving this awesome product called Primal Sport Mud. It’s a paste/mud that you can roll on a sore area, leave for 20 minutes and I swear it WORKS WONDERS!!

  2. I love love love Pro Compression socks and have them in several colours as well! Can’t get enough! I am super jelly that you have strawberries already. We will be waiting another 2 months for them!!

  3. I am in LOVE with the Herbs & Spices popcorn from Trader Joe’s. I swear I go through 2-3 bags a week. 🙂

  4. Love ProCompression socks after a long/hard run.
    These days, I love maracuja oil (by Tarte). It has helped clear up my skin and manage them fine wrinkles (from being out in the sun all the time).

  5. I’m a pro compression wearer too #keepittight. I use nuun most of the time, but right now I’m kinda digging cocogo. And when I first started running, I was shotblok pusher. Now, I’m loving the honey stingers chews, and the honey stingers honey waffle. Nom nom nom… If we are talking non running stuff, I’m able to kill a back of TJ’s Inner Peas, and also, (RUTRO) a whole container of double chocolate chip cookies. And yes, it’s the double.

  6. Currently in love with my pink and purple compression socks from 2XU. When I first got my Nuun tablet months ago, I wasn’t too big of a fan of it. However, since you love yours so much, I’m going to give it a second chance!

  7. I love procompression! I work 12 hour shifts and they help so much with soreness. I also wear them while running and after. How about strawberry shortcake with gluten free bisquick and vanilla bean ice cream? Super easy and soooo good!!

  8. I’m OBSESSED with procompression socks to the point where I forced my bff to buy them last wk. I also love them bc they have a sock of the month… I love expecting something new every month:). Also I’m really digging gelato. I ate an entire carton (don’t think it was a gallon) last wk by myself.. thank god I run. I love champagne but last wk when I went to dinner with my friend we put a drop of chambord in the bottom…to.die.for!

  9. The WF Hawaiian Punch green juice is amazing! If you see it, you have got to try it.
