Summer Favorites

June 29, 2012

Now that Summer is in full gear I thought I’d share some of my favorites this season.

One of my new favorite things is exfoliating gloves.

If you don’t have a pair get some now. Seriously, put the computer, phone, iPad down and come back to this post. They are so great and an inexpensive way to exfoliate your whole body without the worry of a new shower scrub that may break you out. All you have to do ¬†is put them on in the shower, add your normal wash, and proceed as normal for soft, exfoliated skin.

This time of year is the best time to exfoliate too if you’re using sunless tanners(which you should be instead of UV rays) and to help your lotions work better. I’m telling you exfoliating gloves are the best! You can use them on your feet too right before a DIY pedicure and you’ll be so glad you saved $20. To keep them clean wash and air dry between uses or they’ll get yucky which is never a good adjective to use when describing beauty products.

Moving on from beauty products I’ll dive right in and tell you that I’m a sucker for anything chocolate. Well, almost anything, bacon brownies aren’t the best and I can’t say I’d like to try them again. But one chocolate I’ve been eating daily also gives me my daily calcium intake. I can’t get enough of these Adora discs.

Since I haven’t had dairy in so long and haven’t been good about my calcium rich leafy greens, these take care of my supplement and my sweets craving. I love dark chocolate, but they also have milk chocolate if you prefer.

Summer is great since the days are longer which means more play time, but it also means really bad TV. A lot of my favorite shows are in the regular season, but unless you watch OWN all the time like I do you’re probably thinking the same thing and don’t really watch TV this time of year.

One show that I really got into the last month is on Lifetime and it’s since had its last episode for season one, but you must go online and watch a few episodes. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE The Conversation with Amanda De Cadenet¬†. Travis lovingly calls it “Woman interviewing woman” haha. Before you start thinking it’s another show where beautiful women talk about their great rich lives let me stop you and say it’s nothing like that. It is actresses, designers, politicians, talking about life, but in a way that all women can relate. I come away from each episode with a new look on how every one of us is the same in some way. We each want the best out of life and have the same insecurities as women. It’s just the best and I strongly suggest it as a new show to watch.

Not only this show, but also GIRLS. OMG I’m in LOVE!!!

Find episodes of season one that just ended and catch up, it’s hilarious and also so true for our generation and how we think. It’s brilliantly written by the girl who is the main character which makes me love it even more that it’s not written by a man(gay or straight) to give insight on how women think.

C’mon, GIRL POWER ALL THE WAY!!!! Now I’m off to burn my bra and not shave my underarms, haha jk I love my bras way too much;)

What are some of your favorites for Summer?

Those Adora disks are WAY too delicious – makes me worry about the upper intake limit for calcium!

I’m not supposed to order anything else to get delivered until after we move, but I love the idea of the exfoliating gloves. I’m adding it to my Amazon cart, so I don’t forget for later. :)
