What I’m Loving Lately: February 2015

It’s time again to see what some I have been loving as of late. As the weather changes and as my workouts/training cycles change, my favorites most definitely change as well. Here we go!

1.) Opedix Knee-Tec 2.0 full length compression tights:

Marathon training is painful yall. My joints hurt, I ache a lot, and need serious help recovering. I was given these tights and so far I am really liking them.

They help improve alignment and joint function, as well as reduce muscle fatigue. They have compression plus torque reform technology. These tights are moisture wicking, anti-odor, and breathable. They have a high waistband with a drawstring, and they have a great fit. My favorite thing though is that they are made in the USA! I have been wearing them after some long runs and my muscles feel more relaxed and I feel more fresh the next day and ready to run again. They have a lot of seams which I wasn’t sure about at first, but soon realized it helps and gives more compression and a better fit. (Follow them on Instagram here).

2.) Emma Kate’s Easter basket:

I never click on the sponsored content that comes up on Facebook, but this time I did. There was a great sale price plus free personalization on baskets from Viv and Lou, so I had to get one!

3.) Starbucks baby gift idea:

I saw this on Instagram. How adorbs is this? Baby blankets made to look like Starbucks drinks. I die. Now I just need to find a fellow Starbucks lover who is expecting, yes, I even have hypothetical pregnancy gift ideas for people who don’t exist yet in my life. Don’t judge.

4.) This. Need I say more?

5.) External charger from Jane.com

I bought this a month or so ago and it has been a lifesaver. I just stick it in my purse and can recharge my phone when I am using it a lot and don’t have an outlet nearby. It was only about $7, and I have seen them pop up on the site several times. Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with Jane.com, enter at your own risk. Ssssoooo addicting!

QOTD: What is something you are loving lately? Do you have or like any of the things I mentioned?

Disclosure: I was sent the Opedix tights to try free of charge, but everything else in this post I purchased. All opinions are my own.


What I’m Loving: April 2014

Thanks for all the feedback on wanting to hear my Katrina story, I will try to have it up Thursday.

Today I wanted to share some things that I am loving lately!

1.) Cascadian Farms new chewy bars with protein: I have always loved their chewy bars, they are a great snack to fit in my purse. However,  always did wish they kept me feeling full a little longer and had some protein in them. Well, my wish was granted! Lookie what they sent me in the mail! These babies have 9 grams of protein and come in yummy flavors. One of my favorite snacks is now seriously pumped up to keep me going in between meals. Instant love.

2.) Fit Pregnancy: Awhile back Jen sent me a link for a free digital subscription to Fit Pregnancy, and I have enjoyed reading it the past couple of months. I have learned several new things, and it keeps me motivated!

3.) Old Navy Maternity clothes: There is a special sale going on right now through April 9th where if you use your Old Navy credit card (or Gap or Banana) you get 30% off your entire purchase plus a free tote bag! We saved over $50 on the clothes my mom bought for me between that discount and some sale items. I was pretty stoked! (Discount works online, too!) So besides the awesome price, their clothes are super comfortable and they have some great spring colors.

4.) Caramel Coconut coffee creamer: It is girl scout cookie time, but also girl scout cookie creamer time! This caramel coconut has a great flavor and I have loved adding it to my half-caff cup of coffee in the mornings. Yum!

5.) Spring flowers: Spring has definitely sprung aorund here, and everyone is busy planting beautiful flowers in front of their house. We haven’t done that, but all of our flowering bushes have come to life, and I can’t wait for the Gardenias to bloom later on.

QOTD: What are you loving this month?

Natural Bliss Giveaway

Here in the deep south, we don’t have too many freezing cold days, so when we do, I am grateful for a hot cup of coffee. However, ask anyone who knows me well…I am very picky about my coffee. I have to have lots of creamer, and more specifically, I prefer flavored creamer when possible.

My fridge is always stocked with Natural Bliss (I love vanilla and sweet cream!) and ready for a cool morning. So, I was very excited when I was asked to do a giveaway centered around simple moments and Natural Bliss creamer. I was sent this cute gift pack:


A coffee travel cup, a candle, biscotti, Natural Bliss coupons, and a $5.00 Target gift card to purchase your own creamer. The candle smells amazing by the way!
