YESSS. Best day of the week. Friday is once again here and I couldn’t be more excited about it! So far I’ve been sticking to my “no 5-day work weeks” goal for the summer and I’m taking today off again. Riley and I are hitting the beach, so by the time you read this I’ll probably be hard at work getting tan. Well, as tan as I ever get anyway, which isn’t very much. BUT I guarantee I’ll have a few new freckles for ya come Monday.
I’m linking up with Katie and Heather today to share what’s been making me smile this week, so head on over after reading this to check out everyone else’s Friday Favorites. Hope you enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!
Ahhh, you guys! I seriously can’t wait to see this movie and it’s definitely going on my weekend to-do list (p.s. check out the website cause it’s super cool). The original Jurassic Park is an old favorite of mine and it’s one of those movies that I always stop to watch if I’m browsing channels and see that it’s on.
I mentioned these a couple weeks ago, but I’ve had more time to try them out so I wanted to give you an update on my opinion. Several weeks ago the folks over at Java Elixir graciously sent me their brand new products to test out. Apparently, I’ve mentioned my coffee habit quite a bit on the blog and caught their eye. Maybe the fact that I keep a coffee pot in my office gave away my addiction? Anyway, The company makes three different all-natural “elixirs” that can be added to your morning coffee. It’s obviously geared towards us coffee lovers, but I actually threw some into my morning smoothies a couple times, so that’s always an option too. The elixirs they offer are for Detox, Immunity, and Focus+. I’ve tried all three, but I use the Focus+ one almost every day since I brought it to the office, so I’d have to say it’s my favorite.
The Focus+ elixir has ingredients like gingko leaf, St. John’s wort, and ginseng root. All natural and no scary chemicals. When I first opened the bottle, I noticed it does have a smell to it. I worried this meant that I’d taste it, but it doesn’t actually change the flavor of your beverage at all. I’m not sure if the extra focus and energy I get is from the elixir or the fact that I drink Americanos, which are pretty much straight espresso. Either way, I’ve been super productive in the office since I started adding the Focus+, so I definitely plan to keep using it! I also like the pretty bottles because they make the top of my microwave look like a fancy apothecary or something. Priorities. Anyway, if you like the idea of adding in a little health boost to your morning beverage, I recommend heading over and checking them out!
It’s officially beach season for me and I’m hoping to go once a week this summer. We’re lucky enough to live within 10 minutes of a few beaches on the river, so I’m totally ready. Our beach cooler is leaking, though, so I’ve been on the lookout for a new one, which naturally sparked an hour-long internet browsing session to look at ALL the beach supplies. Some of my favorites:
This Beach Blanket-
It’s a cooler AND a speaker! I never knew I needed a combined cooler/speaker until Amazon told me I did.
This beach bag-
Because nautical stuff is my life…..
This cocktail (Cotton candy champagne. I don’t normally drink sweet drinks, but I want this in my life)-
This twist on caprese salad-
And on that tasty note, I’m off to start the weekend. I’ve got big plans for beach time, washing my car, napping, running, yoga-ing, reading, and probably sipping some wine on the back deck. It’s going to be glorious.
Have a great weekend!
