Hi, guys! Happy Friday!

I have quite the edition of What I’m Loving Lately for you! I haven’t written one in a few weeks now, so I have all sorts of goodies and fun stuff to share with you. Let’s get right to it!

Williams Sonoma Skinny Jalapeno Key Lime Margarita Mix – A friend told me about this mix, and it definitely lives up to its hype! One ounce only has 12 calories and a little goes a long way. The flavor is pretty strong with a spicy jalapeno kick! Mmm! I’ve been mixing it with tequila and lime-flavored seltzer water for a seriously delicious low-calorie cocktail – perfect for the beach, too!

Shark Tracker app – Another friend of mine told me about this free app, and it’s so cool! You can even search specific locations (i.e. Cape Cod) and sharks.


Tea Tree Clear Skin Serum – I’ve been dealing with some hormonal breakouts recently (ughhh… seed cycling is failing me!?), so I started using this “age-defying formula for acne-prone skin,” which I found on Amazon and purchased based on reviews, and I’m really happy with how well it works on clearing up blemishes. It’s made from a combo of all-star ingredients, including Vitamin C, Retinol, Niacinamide, Salicylic Acid, and Hyaluronic Acid, so it’s multipurpose. I’m a big fan!

Tea Tree Clear Skin Serum, Age-Defying formula for acne-prone skin with 20% Vitamin C, Retinol, Niacinamide, Salicylic Acid & Hyaluronic Acid for Blemish-Free, Soft, Radiant, Youthful Skin. 1oz

Dairy: Is it good or bad for you? Exploring the pros and cons of this controversial food group  – This was a super compressive article (with all sorts of additional reading) about dairy from Precision Nutrition. (Mal and I had a conversation about dairy the other day, so this came at the perfect time!) 

This sweater tank from J.Crew – Adorable, right? It comes in navy, dark green, champagne, and other colors. I NEED it in my life! It’s actually 30% OFF right now with code SHOPTOIT. I might just need to make it happen! 🙂

I’m also loving this tie-strap camisole! Maybe I can find it in-store at J.Crew for Zac Brown Band this weekend? It’s the perfect concert tank top! Love.

Exploring Psychedelics with Michael Pollan (yep, the food guy) on The Joe Rogan Experience – This episode was FASCINATING. It’s definitely worth a listen – and now I want to read his new book!

4 Toxic Ingredients to Avoid in Your Personal Care Products – This is a good summary of what to look out for!

Female Hormones & Recovering from Birth Control with Dr. Jolene Brighten – This was a really great podcast episode! Dr. Brighten is definitely someone to follow. I’m on her email list and love her content – be sure to sign up!

How to Balance Hormones – More great info from Dr. Brighten. This is a round-up of symptoms with some helpful recommendations!

Enjoy the weekend, friends! 🙂
