One of my absolute favorite things is getting an inside look at the products, books, podcasts, charities, etc. that bloggers use and love. I have a running list on my phone of blogger–recommended items to try throughout the year. This summer, I introduced a new series to ElizabethMae called Currently Crushing. Each week, different women will share their must-haves, must-reads, must-dos with you. Keep reading for the five things Andrea Charles, blogger at Sharing My Favorites is loving this month. *This post contains affiliate links.
Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk
This body scrub is a simple way to add some luxury to your daily routine! I feel like I’m getting a mini spa treatment every day. It exfoliates my skin and leaves it silky and smooth. A 10.5 oz. jar costs around $6.00 and lasts for weeks! It’s an inexpensive way to give yourself a daily treat!
Banana, Peanut Butter, & Rice Krispies
In my search for a healthy snack, I discovered this tasty combination! I smear a tablespoon of peanut butter on a banana. Then, I roll the banana in Rice Krispies cereal. This sweet and crunchy treat has less than 200 calories! It’s become my new favorite snack!
Walking and Exercise
I admit that I’ve always been a bit of a couch potato, but this year I’m on a quest to get healthy (and stay that way)! A few months ago, I decided to start walking a little each day. I began walking 15 minutes every day and I’ve gradually built up to walking two hours a day. I can’t get enough of it! I’ve heard people say that they were addicted to exercise and now I understand it. It feels so good to work your body. Exercise seems to bring my whole body to life and really motivates me to get out there and seize the day. I’m realizing that exercise not only benefits your physical health, but it also improves your mental health, too!
Stur Liquid Drink Mixes
A friend introduced me to these drink mixes that were invented by a father who wanted his family to have eight servings of water each day. I’ve been trying to drink more water and this product has helped me achieve that goal. Stur comes in a variety of flavors with zero sugar, zero calories, and lots of vitamin C. (They’re also gluten free and kosher.) I love that the bottles are small enough to carry in my purse. Each bottle makes around twenty 8 oz. drinks. I usually add a couple of small packs of Stevia to the water so it’s sweeter. So far, I’ve loved every flavor that I’ve tried!
Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara
It seems like everybody’s searching for ways to get fuller brows these days! That’s why I absolutely love, love, love Make Me Brow by Essence. Are you sitting down? It only costs around $3.00! Yes, $3.00! The gel contains tiny fibers that fill in the gaps to make your eyebrows look fuller and more defined. It’s so easy to apply and only takes a few seconds. I love how it makes my brows look!
That concludes Vol. 11 of Currently Crushing. Check back next week for all the best in products, TV, reading, etc.
