It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these but I actually love making a point of noticing things I love each week, so I’m bringing it back!
Here are some of my favourite things that I’ve really come to love this summer. I have found myself using them on almost a daily basis and often wonder how I survived without them!
I was invited to an event and was allowed to choose a pair of Serengeti sunglasses. I chose the Valentina pair and couldn’t be more in love. Their lenses are photochromic and adapt according to the light around you. I’ve never owned a nice pair of sunglasses unless you count my $8 pair from Old Navy. My eyes are really sensitive and I truly didn’t realize how much a great pair of sunglasses could help. I wear these constantly now–even when it’s cloudy. You’ve probably seen me in them in a lot of pictures already! My eyes are significantly less sore than they were last summer which means I am significantly happier! Invest in your eyes, guys, and get a decent pair of sunglasses!
(I was not asked to write about them in exchange for the glasses. I just truly love them!)
Beautycounter Sun Stick
This little sun stick is my fave! It’s so cute and totally convenient plus it also smells so darn good that I want to eat it (but I resist. Promise!). I think my favourite thing about this stick is that I don’t have to get anything on my hands to apply it. No sticky mess left over or sunscreen stuck in my hair etc. Total win!
I already wrote an entire post about how much I love these shorts but seriously, it needs to be mentioned one more time! They’re just so comfy I’ve found myself wearing them constantly all summer. I have two pairs but still panic if they both happen to be dirty at the same time because I possibly wear them at least 4-5 times a week. (Fashion is obviously not my strong skill set.) Now if I could just get Reebok to send me a few more pairs before they disappear from their collection forever, I wouldn’t have to do laundry so often!
The Lululemon Run All Day Backpack
I borrowed this backpack from my friend, Lisa, last September and wore it for a 13km run. I had never run with a backpack on, but I was really impressed.
I thought about it for months and months and right before our trip to Turkey, Prague and Jordan I saw that it was on sale. I went and picked one up and don’t regret it for a minute! I used this bag so much on our trip. I stuffed it with snacks we took from the hotel in Petra (hello, continental breakfast!), extra clothes, phone chargers, etc. It is comfortable to wear for long periods of time and even was neutral enough for my husband to wear without feeling awkward!
Since the trip, I’ve used this bag for countless runs. If I don’t have much in the bag I can adjust all the straps to synch the bag into a smaller size. If I want to carry extra shoes and a change of outfit, there’s room for that as well.
This is not a hydration backpack (as in it doesn’t come with a bladder), but if you buy a separate bladder you can easily put it into the bag and use it like that.
What are some of your favourites that you’ve used this summer?
