Nike Dri-FIT Touch Breeze Tank
Let me introduce you to the best summer workout top ever. I first purchased this tank at the the Nike Outlet a few weeks ago. It’s perfect to wear outdoors in the North Carolina heat because it is so sheer and lightweight. It hardly feels like I’m wearing a shirt but it provides enough coverage for me to feel comfortable wearing it out in my neighborhood. The material wears and washes well, and it comes in several fun colors. This is a longer tank which is great for bike riding. I loved it so much that I ordered 2 more from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Just an FYI- I found that the sizing runs a little big. I ended up having to size down.
Make-Up Forever Powder Foundation
The concept of powder foundation has always been appealing to me but I have never been able to find a formula that worked for my skin. Then I received a sample of this MUFE foundation from Sephora. I’ve been using it for about a month and I loved it so much that I bought the full-size product (<—that’s how they get you!).
The formula layers well without looking caked on, it doesn’t accentuate large pores or blemishes (which is a problem I’ve had with other powder foundations), and it wears well throughout the day on my oily skin. I find the application to be much more simple than with liquid foundation, which I appreciate when I’m short on time in the morning.
I can’t get through a workout without listening to music and it has taken me forever to find a pair of earbuds that actually stays in my ears. I love my Women’s Yurbud Inspire earbuds and I am getting a ton of use out of them this summer! They come with 2 different sizes of earbud covers, which attach to the actual earbud and twist into your ears. They never come loose out of my ears, even when I get sweaty.
I also have to tell you about Yurbud’s customer service. I purchased the regular unisex earbuds initially and they were too big for me. I meant to take them back to Best Buy but missed the window of return. I emailed Yurbud’s customer service and asked them if they made any smaller rubber covers that I could purchase separately. They asked me to please send them my Yurbuds and they sent me a brand new pair of women’s Yurbuds for free! They have amazing customer service and it made me love their product even more.
A bonus about these- I have seen them in Marshall’s lately for $14.99.
Mini nALGENE WATER BOTTLE
So I have an addiction to buying water bottles. It may or may not be a problem. I’m mostly a fan of water bottles with straws, but this little 14oz. Nalgene bottle has been great to toss in my purse or work tote. I like that it’s big enough to hold water for a car ride or to keep at your desk, but small enough that it’s not cumbersome in your bag or cup holder. I also like the durability of Nalgene bottles. I will of course keep bigger water bottles for workouts, but this is great for everyday use.
sAM sMITH / In the Lonely Hour
Man, I love his voice. I don’t purchase many albums but I put this one on my wish list right after I saw his performance on SNL earlier this year. I’ve really enjoyed this record- Latch, Leave Your Lover and Stay With Me are my favorites. Also, if you haven’t heard it already, you need to listen to this:
Gone are the days where I have to either carry a purse + camera bag or a “camera purse”. Now I can just put my DSLR in whatever bag I’m carrying without worrying about it getting damaged. I used this sleeve all throughout our beach vacation and I thought it protected my camera very well.
Coleman Soft Cooler
This may just be the perfect summer cooler. It’s a great size for K and I, and the shoulder strap makes it easy to carry when your hands are full. We have used it at the pool, beach and for concert tailgating. The inside plastic compartment is removable , which just adds to the functionality… we don’t have to worry about melting ice leaking out of it (great for car rides), it fits in the fridge if we want to pre-pack it in advance, and it’s no problem to clean. The outside pocket adds a nice little storage space for stuff like napkins, utensils or a bottle opener. We have the size that holds 16 cans, but they make a smaller and larger one depending on what you need.
So that’s it for now!
