Guys. It’s spring. Finally!
In fact, it’s almost just downright summer. Two weeks ago, it was snowing at this moment. Now, it’s almost 90 degrees. Oh Colorado, we love you.
I have decided that spring is for booty shorts, salmon, and buckets of tulips on my coffee table. Here are some of the other things I am loving right now…
Whole Foods’ Chimichurri Spice Blend. I seriously have been putting this crap on everything, from fish to chicken to eggs. It is SO delicious and fresh-tasting. You can make your own version here.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin face moisturized with SPF 15. I am a burner, big time, and I love this stuff because it isn’t oily and I can wear it to outdoor WODs without worrying about smelling like sunscreen–sometimes I even put it on my legs because it doesn’t get as slippery as normal sunscreen. Also, raft guide pro tip: Wear a hat but don’t put sunscreen on your forehead, that way it won’t run into your eyes when you sweat.
This flour-free sweet potato pancakes recipe. They are pretty delicate and took me a few tries to get a batch in one piece, but dang, they are so tasty.
Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. So salty and chocolatey and delicious.
But even more than that, Primal Blueprint’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Coconut Bark. Take 1 cup of coconut oil, melt it in with about 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips, pour it in a pie tin or plate that’s been lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle a little bit of shredded coconut, coarse sea salt, and you can even add sliced almonds if you want to. Put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes and voila! SO. TASTY.
Sparkling water. Have I gone over this yet? I am seriously going through a bottle a day of sparkling water. I used to have one of those at-home water-fizzers but I ran out of gas and haven’t ever refilled… so for now, I should probably just buy stock in the Sprouts Market store brand sparkling water.
These Lululemon booty shorts. 1, they make me feel like a badass and 2, they encourage me to shave my legs, which is important now that it isn’t the dead of winter anymore. I need all the encouragement I can get in the normal-hygiene-routines department.
And last but not least… Leg makeup! Stay with me here. When I was in that wedding a few weeks ago, I picked up a bottle of Sally Hansen’s leg makeup for like $10 at Target. It’s basically foundation in an aerosol can that you spray on your legs. It gives you a little bit of color but mostly just makes you look like you have super even skin tone and even a little tiny bit of glitter. And it didn’t rub off AT ALL. I had just shaved my legs about 10 minutes before applying it so I was probably pretty well exfoliated, but it didn’t rub off on my dress, the chair I sat in while I got my makeup done, or even the tops of my shoes that rubbed against it all night. It did, however, come off pretty easily with soap and water at the end of the night. If you are going to attend (or be in) a wedding or event this summer that’s outdoors and too hot for pantyhose, seriously try this stuff!
