Phew! Happy Friday! What a crazy week it’s been! The last week of the month is always crazy busy for me at work, but on top of the usual craziness we had personal things going on and also blog deadlines! March was a hectic month so I had/have all intentions of slooowing down in May, but it’s not looking good. I’m hosting a fun Cinco de Mayo themed lunch at work today. Tomorrow the kids and I are meeting my best friend and her family in Sea World. I seriously can’t wait! I wish we could stay longer than an overnight trip, but now I’ll be rushing back on Sunday to prep a beautiful Mother’s Day brunch tablescape to help you all plan for the lovely ladies in your life! Moms really don’t get enough credit, so it’s always fun to do something special for them!
My last Friday Favorites post was probably about a month ago…I’m so sorry for that! As much as I’d like to do one every week it’s just not realistic for my schedule. But I’m back this week with a FF – Fun in the Sun edition! Let’s gooo…
HEALTH & BODY
In Florida, beach season approaches rather quickly. With my busy schedule, its really easy for me to fall into an unhealthy pattern of eating. I took a step back last month and jump started my nutritional cleansing program again. In all honesty this system makes me feel my best and its rather convenient to just grab a shake while on the run with the kids on the weekend. The energy shots are the added boost (without the crash) I need in the afternoons to get me through the mid-day slump and through dinner, bathtime and late night blogging. Bonus- it reduces belly bloat and I feel more confident in a swimsuit!
If you’re interested in nutritional cleansing or learning more about it, you can reach out to my friend Allyn on Facebook.
Aging and proper skincare seem to go hand-in-hand as you get older. During and after my pregnancies I slacked off sooo much, but for my birthday my sister sent me the BEST daily body moisturizer and self-tanning foam. My skin feels amazing and now I don’t have to look like a ghostly lady in a swimsuit at the beach! Gone are the reckless days of tanning in a booth or having the luxury of laying out by the pool with an afternoon nap. My grandmother has recently undergone some treatments for removing skin cancer which was really an eye opener to make sure I’m protecting my skin from the sun. This tanning foam goes on easy and smooth and is just what my vain-self needs to prep for summer beach life. The body moisturizer smells amazing and really makes my skin feel silky smooth! I forgot how enjoyable it feels to take care of myself!
For more information on Rodan + Fields skincare products you can reach out to my sister, Darlene on Facebook.
What’s the use of preparing my skin and prepping my body if I don’t have a cute swimsuit, right?! I grabbed this adorable suit on sale recently. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to a bikini, but I love the style of this one piece. There’s absolutely no grandma vibe to it at all! Added bonus is the extremely reasonable price tag for a quality swimsuit! You better believe though that I’ll be wearing this perfect cover-up dress and taking along the famous round towel as we head out to the beach!
What are your must-haves for the beach season? Are there any products you can’t live without?
