Fridays are always a fun day in Beets land. It’s the start of the weekend, a time for rest, worship and fun. Last week we drove up to Jacksonville just for the night to run a 5k. We were exhausted driving the two hours back home so this weekend we are keeping things quiet. Staying in town and getting things done around the house.
Fridays are also the day I reflect back on my week. Fridays I compile my favorite things of the past week whether it was food, a beauty product, adventure or whatever else makes me smile. Let’s jump right in, shall we?
1. Boots No. 7 Face Serum
I love this stuff. I’ve been using a face serum for awhile now and love how my skin has been looking. My Mom recently introduced me to the Boots line which is widely available at Walgreens, Target or from Amazon here. This is the one serum I have found that doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy, which is important in the extreme Florida summer heat.
2. Philosophy Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel
This is another product my Mom introduced me to while I was in New York City. It’s like a facial/peel, only it’s done in the privacy of your home and no tipping is required. I love the Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash so to add this to my routine just makes sense. You can find this at Ulta, Sephora or get it from Amazon here.
3. Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher
It’s summertime! Time to ditch the hot coffee at Starbucks and spend the summer enjoying their line of Refreshers. Last year I made a copycat recipe for the Cool Lime flavor but this time around I am crushing on the Very Berry Hibiscus one. I have been brainstorming about how to make this at home and I think I’ve just about got it. I will share the recipe as soon as I perfect it which should be real soon!
4. Coconut Water and Pineapple Juice
So perfect for summer. Refreshing coconut water and pineapple juice- a big weight loss secret weapon of celebrities like Katie Holmes. The pineapple juice has to be 100% pure juice though, no cheating with the high fructose corn syrup version!
5. Maine Root Ginger Brew
I haven’t ever been a big fan of ginger until recently. I kind of crave it now and I’ve been using raw ginger root in a lot of cooking lately. My Mom and I found this Ginger Brew soda by the Maine Root people. We already love their Mexicane Cola so this time around we opted to try the Ginger Brew. You absolutely have to love ginger though, this brew tastes like you are drinking a liquid version of raw ginger root. It’s pretty darn good.
