Five Favorites

Here’s my Five Favorite Finds for the week:

Weekend Favorite: Heading to the beach with my family for our annual Fort Morgan trip! Cannot wait for a week of relaxation, fellowship and fun–AND yummy seafood. I will be posting LOTS of our eats from the trip so stay tuned 🙂 And I’ve got a sweet friend coming in town tonight I can’t wait to see!

Beauty Favorite: Lush face cleanser. I LOVE the Lush store in New Orleans, I am one of those people that gets sucked in and feels the need to buy every product that promises the impossible. I’ve tried a few of the face scrubs and find they break me out, but I really like this unique cleanser. It’s not a foamy face wash but a beeswax based cream you swipe on then wipe off..how easy is that? So far my face feels more moisturized and “balanced”

Here’s the product description and link to the site: “ultra bland” lush cleanser

A hugely popular cult product, Ultrabland is a thick, rich emulsion of essential oils, honey and beeswax to take off any make up or residue that has built up on your face throughout the day. Unlike most make up removers, Ultrabland leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished, thanks to soothing rosewater and iris flower extract

Favorite Organic:  My family has been using Dr. Bronner’s soaps FOREVER. This is the best soap, it lathers up more than any soap I’ve used and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean and oh-so-soft. All the scents I’ve tried are delicious! We love the lavender best.

Favorite Sweet: From skin health to ice cream. Ben and Jerry’s Fro-yo, it’s almost better than the real thing. I always get cherry garcia at the b&J store in Memphis. Bowen and I have resorted to making our own ice cream treats in Fairhope since we don’t have a Ben & Jerry’s or Brusters. You have got to try this fro-you, its not overly sweet but sweet enough and has a wonderfully creamy texture. Even if it wasn’t “lower fat” I think I would still pick this over the real thing.

Favorite Salad:  I mentioned this super foods salad earlier in the week, it’s definitely one of my favorite weekly lunches. I’ve only ever seen this  mix in Costco in Memphis until this week when I stumbled upon a smaller portion bag at Publix, yes! The Kale Vegetable Salad Kit includes broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, roasted pumpkin seeds and poppyseed dressing.
