Do you have any fun plans for tomorrow? I am not sure what we have planned but from what I can already tell, it is going to be crazy over here. I was in Silver Lake last year for the 4th of July and it is a very popular vacation spot in Michigan, so there are people every where!
In the usual Friday fashion I am sharing a round up of my favorite things from the week and linking up with Heather, Jill, and Clare. Thanks for hosting ladies!
I can thank my dad for getting me hooked on this one! I love drinking flavored sparkling waters to give my daily hydration some flavor and keep me drinking water and the Ice Mountain Sparkling Waters are always great. I make sure to always check the labels of sparkling waters since a lot of the flavored ones are flavored with splenda or aspartame which I try to avoid at all costs. I made sure it is naturally flavored, which the Ice Mountain one passes the test! And it tastes so great and so bubbly, it is my go-to sip while blogging, working, or just relaxing.
Trader Joe's Black Bean Snack
New favorite snack alert! As soon as I saw these black beans snacks at Trader Joe's I knew I just had to try them! I eat black beans on the regular so I figured I would really like these. I was a little hesitant, though, since I am not a fan of the Snapea Crisps, and these looked similar. I gave them a try and instantly loved the flavor! They are a tasty snack that satisfies my chip craving. I could easily eat the whole bag in one sitting, but I working on that self-restraint not to ;)
I recently had the opportunity to try out an Incase sports armband and share with you my thoughts on it. Ever since I upgraded from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 6, I have not had an armband to use for working out. The iPhone 6 is not only larger but also the headphone jack also switched location. I have used my FlipBelt for all of my runs, which has worked out great, but I also like having an armband to hold my phone since it is a lot easier to change the volume or change the song rather than pulling it out of my belt. The great things about the Incase sports armband is that it is adjustable to the size of your arm and stays in place the whole time. I have gone out on multiple runs with this and it has never bothered me. With a larger iPhone, I thought the case might bother me being bigger, but I barely even notice it on. The armband also has reflective details that provide that extra safety and high visibility when running in the dark.
I have been loving having this armband with me on my runs and easily storing my phone and my keys with me while I run. If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, here is the link to buy it (affiliate link, thank you for your support!). Incase also offers sports armbands for other iPhones, as well as cases for iPhone 6s as well!
This is a must in a summer Friday Favorites for me! I was finally able to have my first bowl of watermelon this summer and it sure was tasty. The only time I ever eat watermelon is during the summer when it is at its freshest, and since that doesn't always last too long I make sure to take advantage of it as much as I can. Watermelon + summer = <3 <3 <3
Farmer's Markets have become a regular weekend activity for me this summer. I love visiting the farmer's market when I visit home or when I stay at my apartment as they both have a variety of fresh foods that I love to stock up on for the week. It is also great to be able to talk with the local farmers about where the produce is grown and how they are being affected by the weather. I love picking up my go-tos like lettuce mixes and zucchini and getting adventurous too and trying out new to me foods like dinosaur kale! I just can never get over how fresh and colorful everything looks!
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
