Friday Five - Top 5 Summer Favorites- 05.31.19

This week’s Friday Five features 5 products that are my current favorites as we head into Summer!

Michael Todd Soniclear Petite   My skin has gone a little crazy since having a baby (thank you, hormones). And now the oil on my face is going crazy thanks to the crazy summer humidity (thank you, Florida.) I started using this  Soniclear by Michael Todd Beauty  and it‘s been a TOTAL game changer. Since using it, I’ve noticed a huge difference in the smoothness of my skin. My melasma (dark spots) from my pregnancy have basically disappeared. And I get far fewer breakouts and texture because it keeps my pores clear from dirt and build up. I use it 3-4 days a week in my nighttime skincare routine, followed by a toner and moisturizer.

La Croix Sparkling Water   My husband and I have been seriously addicted to these for about 4 months now. If you’re anything like us, and don’t love just drinking plain water all day, but also don’t want to drink your calories with sodas or juices, then give La Croix a try. They have zero calories, sugar, carbs, etc. so they’re great replacement for soda or sugary drinks. My favorite summer-time cocktail has been I pouring it over ice with some fresh fruit & vodka! A great healthy alternative to sugary cocktails! Our favorite flavors are Grapefruit and Lime. (They’re at every grocery store. Bubly is also a great brand that we get sometimes too!)

Facial Setting Mist w/ SPF   I’ll be totally honest, I didn’t really understand the point of a setting mist. Yeah it feels nice, but is it really worth the money? But one with an SPF that feels nice AND protects your skin? Now I’m on board. My cousin introduced me to this one by  Supergoop x Rebecca Taylor , it’s SPF 50! I’m usually horrible at reapplying SPF to my face throughout the day, so now I keep this in my handbag and problem solved!

Slip-on Sandals   I had never bought a fashion piece from Walmart before, until I saw  these sandals  recommended by a fashion blogger a few months ago. Only $10?! SCORE! And I’m SO glad I bought them! They have been my total go-tos the last few months for spring and summer! I wear them literally every day. They go with every single outfit.. jeans, shorts, cute dresses, yoga pants, and I also wear them to the beach. I can’t recommend them enough!

America’s Got Talent Video   Okay so this isn’t summer related but I had to include this because it brings me so much joy. I’m sure by now you’ve seen this  viral video of Kodi Lee’s AGT audition . He’s autistic and blind, and he has more talent and bravery in his pinky finger than anyone I’ve ever seen. His audition is such an inspiration, and it’s easily my favorite video of the entire year. So yeah, not summer related, but I just had to include it on my favorites list. I’ve watched it so many times - it brings such a big smile to my face & so many tears to my eyes!
