Quest bars are a favorite for us too, they keep me full for so long!
Things I’m Digging LatelyJanuary 26, 2016
So welcome back to the week, I really have no excuse for my lack of posting yesterday besides the fact we have Netflix and during the break in our shows Mark has gotten me officially addicted to Sons of Anarchy. Not that a biker gang from California has any relevance to my life but I am committed to all seven seasons. I’m also now fully convinced that half of my patients are part of biker gangs and all the moms are “old ladies”. I know. I have a problem.
I also got to see my cousins new twin babies yesterday, which is kind of giving me baby fever. Not twin baby fever by any means but that newborn smell is quite intoxicating. I just didn’t have it in me after my depressing Patriots loss the other night to finish up my weekending post. Plus, I don’t think you want to hear about my binge watching biker gang weekend, the fact I didn’t get out of barre pants the whole time (at least I did take) and shoveling in lots of cold weather hearty eats. Instead, lets talk all about the favorites I’m digging lately.
Protect That Hair
Let’s be brutally honest. How many of you actually use a heat protector? I feel like I have every hair care product, cream, emollient, volumizer that is on the market. When it comes to that last step of a heat protector, I usually forget/rushed to get out the door, etc. I also have really fine hair so I hate putting any potential products on it that could weigh it down. Where has this product been my whole life? I feel like my ends were singing for joy when I sprayed this on it the other night.
Okay, you know when you’re blow drying your hair and you touch your hair and it’s like steaming hot and you almost burn your hand? Yeah. Clearly so good for it. Well I sprayed this super fine mist over it the other night and my hair was cool to the touch the whole time I was blow drying it. I am not joking. It really works. Plus, it didn’t weigh my hair down and it was super shiny and gave it volume. It also apparently protects your hair from humidity, so in FL we will take that. This is seriously a game changer. Do yourself a favor and pick it up here. I feel like I’ve cheated my hair all these years now.
Favorite Protein Bar
I am a bar connoisseur. As you know I’m always running from one thing to the next, so my purse is full of bars. So many bars out there are full of carbs, fake sugars and products you can’t pronounce. Now I’m not saying this one is the organic or made with all natural materials but I will tell you what. Man it keeps me full. Plus, it is under 200 calories and has tons of fiber in it but not that kind of fiber that you can’t like share an office with someone if you catch my drift. I eat this around 9am and around 1 I’m still not even counting down the minutes till I can eat lunch. Mark took one the other day and texting me in the afternoon “hey can you get more of those oreo bars they are awesome”. The pickiest bar eater approved over here.
If you pop them in the microwave for 8 seconds (10 is too melty, 8 is just right) they are so tasty. Just make sure to take them out of the wrapper. Yes. I can admit that to y’all. It happened. I’ll own it. I get mine at Trader Joes but Amazon carries them in bulk for a great price.
Best Afternoon Snack Attack
Speaking of Trader Joes. The best afternoon pick me up. Not a ton of calories and totally satisfies that sweet craving. These are by the check out area. You are welcome. Straight up addicting.
Chug That Water
I have really been trying to step up my water game. I adore my S’well bottle but I really do prefer drinking out of glass when possible. I found this water bottle the other day and it’s amazing. 20 oz and you can drink it one handed. If you unscrew it a little bit the water filters out of the top and no spillage. Plus, it fits in my cup holder. You know that is my ultimate judge on all things in life. For some reason it hasn’t gotten the best amazon reviews but I don’t put my water bottles in the dishwasher so I think that is peeps main gripes. Just fill up your sink with hot soapy water and clean all of them at once. Four of these in a day and you have your 80 oz. Put 4 rubber bands/hair ties on them and take one off each time you empty and you’re good to go.
For the Perfect Blowout
Finally. From Carly’s recommendation. Not going to lie I initially thought this was a hair brush you use with your hair dryer. When I opened it and saw the plug I was all what the is going on here? However, I love it because I’m a big shower at night and let my hair air dry kind of gal. So now I use this in the morning to smooth out my ends and I look that much more put together. I also brush through prior to going out to create some major volume. Check out her video tutorial for further details. I hit it with this spray at the end and seriously, movie hair. So much volume that stays. It looks like you just got a blow out. Huge fan just know you have to use on dry hair. I clearly didn’t read the fine details on that one. Check it here.
So there you have it. My 5 products that are trending for the week right now. Do you use any of these? What current products are you totally digging right now? Spill! Also, did you watch Sons of Anarchy? I’m in Season 5 right now no spoilers!
