My Beach Essentials

Summer is in full swing + that usually means vacation. When it comes to traveling, I’m definitely an over-packer. Clothes, books, makeup, you name it, I overpack it.

…”What if I need it?”, “but options…”, “Better to have too much than not enough!”…

However, I’m getting a little tired of dragging around a bag that is entirely too heavy + not even touching half the stuff I’ve packed. You could say I’m becoming a minimalist? This week I’m at the beach with my family + I’ve boiled down a pretty solid list of my beach essentials. Give me a bathing suit, a pair of sunglasses, a good book, + I’m set. (Although I’ve found a couple other things that are game changers)

Whether you’re hitting the road this summer, relaxing by the pool, or packing a lunch for your kids to take to camp… This lunch box is so much fun to bring along! Maybe it’s my type A personality, but the organization is all that I could ever ask for. Boring lunch box turns Bento Box. Cue: Planet Box.

Barney Butter Giveaway!

It’s true, I have found a new love in almond butter. It’s creamy, smooth texture + it’s mild taste.

If you’ve never tried Barney Butter before, first of all: you’re missing out because it’s incredible… Whether you eat it straight out of the jar, on an apple, or bake it into a cookie skillet. Secondly, they are known for their creamy texture (rather than the usual grittier texture) because they use blanched almonds, rather than keeping the skin on (which creates the grittier texture). PLUS they’re all natural + packed with lots of healthy fats.

The diet to beat all diets

Eat this. Do that. Blah blah blah. BORING.

Even though it doesn’t have to be January 1st to START, we might as well take advantage of the blank slate. The gyms are jam packed. Everyone is starting new diet plans. & for that I am glad! I am all for being healthy + active. But if it isn’t sustainable, then what good is it.
