It’s that time again…time for June’s favorite things! This month I wanted to focus on things that would fit into your life….an accessory you can use to make any outfit cuter, snacks for on the go, and a way to make every day a little more relaxing….and more!
Please note I received samples of some of these items in order to be able to write these reviews. My opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.
For The Book Lover
If you are a book lover, or have one in your life, you need to check out Storiarts. Their amazing literary products are unique and stunning. I was lucky enough to be able to try out the Alice in Wonderland scarf. It’s an infinity scarf about 63″ in circumference and 12″ wide….very generous in size. The fabric is oh so soft and thick. It weighs about 8 ounces so you can wear this year round. The black and white motif makes it sophisticated but for those who look a little closer, you’ll be delighted with the text and illustrations. There are lots and lots of literary choices available too!
I’ll be honest, I wear a lot of sunblock. I mean, a lot. I LOVE being outside and I’m usually never indoors during the summer. However, I have sensitive skin. Let’s just say that I’ve been to the dermatologist a lot…so I am militant about sun protection. One of the worst places to get burned and the easiest places to overlook? Your lips. COOLA sun care has made my skin care wishes come true once again with their new Mineral Liplux with SPF 30. This line of lip care has a hint of natural color as well as ingredients that leave your lips soft and smooth. It goes on as a sheer tint but gives you just enough color to make that sundress pop. It’s made up of 70% Certified Organic Ingredients and it’s even water resistant up to 40 minutes. This is the one lip care product you need this summer. Protect your lips from aging, damage, and make them look good at the same time. I promise, you’ll want one in every color. They are totally affordable too!
You know I love essential oils. See what I had to say about them in a previous blog post here. There are a lot of diffusers out there and I’ve tried a few of them. Not only have I broken some, they look like plastic eye sores in the areas of my home that I use them. I was lucky enough to come across this diffuser made by Organic Aromas. Not only is the wood exterior stunning, it’s effective. It can diffuse oil for up to 800 square feet. For me, this is most of the bottom floor of my home. It turns off automatically and the runs so quietly you don’t know it’s on. This is the perfect way to relax and calm your home, or to give it a festive flair, just pick whatever oil your mood fancies. This makes an amazing house warming present or even a super baby shower gift as well! I am adding another to my wish list…for my office!
I’m always looking out for healthy snacks that taste amazing. I spent a lot of time on the go and let’s just say that finding something that’s healthy AND delicious? Not so easy. I was able to try out Hail Merry’s snack bites and they are just what I was looking for. They are lacking in every positive way possible. Their snacks are all; R.A.W. and C.L.E.A.N., Gluten-Free, NON-GMO, Vegan, Fair Trade, and Kosher. BUT they come in amazing flavors like; caramel sea salt, dark chocolate, lemon, pure vanilla, chocolate chip, and salted brownie. I mean flavors like these are desserts, not health food! However, they are just what the doctor ordered in terms of healthy fats, calories, and portion size. I promise you, even the kids will love these.
Stress Free Cosmetics
If you remember my New Year’s Beauty Blog Post, thrive causmetics is an amazing new brand that not only gives back, but they create astonishingly awesome makeup and personal care products. Their latest, the Triple Threat Color Stick is my new bestie in my makeup drawer. This one stick can color lips, cheeks, and eyes…making it perfect for travel. It’s available in four flattering shades and it’s even got some vitamin C in there to brighten and hydrate while it colors. It feels amazing on, even on those hot sticky, summer days! And it stays on….even through hot yoga class! Oh and of course it’s;

Breakfast On The Go
Eating a healthy breakfast while running out the door is tough. In fact, it’s one of the hardest things I’ve had to tackle in regards to a healthy diet. I’m just as apt to hit a drive through or the coffee shop instead of starting out my day a tad earlier to make breakfast. Well my schedule and my health have come to an agreement with my newest discovery of Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal Cups. These cups are packed with delicious nutrition and ready to go when you are. Simply add water and eat. Yeah, it is that easy. These cups come in a variety of flavors including Apple Cinnamon, Brown Sugar and Maple, and Blueberry and Hazelnut. They are gluten free, vegan, and ready in THREE minutes. It’s a win for your tastebuds and your body! Check out all of their offerings on their website.
