Well happy March!! February was an amazing month, but I’m really happy that it’s March because that means SPRING is almost here. While I love the winter months for the holidays and being the mountains for skiing, hiking is where it’s at for me. I can’t wait to lace up my boots and hit the trails VERY soon. On that note, let’s take a look at the highlight reel from February.
I received a bottle of this amazingness back in January as part of an ongoing partnership with NOW Foods and I’m still using it! A little bit goes a long way with this stuff, and I really love it. It does a great job at moisturizing and protecting while shaving. It has also helped with some razor burn issues I was having and is paraben free and gluten free. While I never really thought that I needed a natural shaving cream, I’m so glad I tried this stuff. I’m totally hooked.
Last month, I entered an instagram contest and won all of the above face cleansing products from Derma e. So far, I am really liking the way that my skin is reacting to the products. I don’t feel like the moisturizers are thick or oily and they don’t make my face shiny (I have BIG time issues with that!). The products are still pretty new to me, but right now I’m really digging them.
A few weeks ago, I received a fun package inviting me to attend a new fitness class at CorePower Yoga and this amazing bag was included. I feel like this is the modern day equivalent to the Mary Poppins bag. It isn’t HUGE, but there are so many pockets and compartments you can fit literally anything in it. Another cool thing is that you can use it as a back pack, cross body or shoulder bag. So far, I’ve used it as a gym bag and an overnight bag and it has worked amazing.
Is anyone else totally in love with succulents like I am? Last week, I saw this adorable garden at Trader Joe’s and couldn’t pass it up. I’m hoping to keep this alive (I’ve killed quite a few plants, including succulents in my day!), so any tips on succulent care are welcome.
I absolutely ADORE cook books. I read them like novels, I tab every recipe that looks amazing, and I get so much inspiration from them. Recently, I’ve been cooking up quite a few new-to-me recipes from these cook books that I received for Christmas. If you are looking for a good cook book with healthy, nourishing, and fulfilling recipes I can’t recommend these cook books enough!
Brian’s mom got me this bracelet for Valentine’s Day and I think I fall more and more in love with it each day. I’ve always been the type of gal that believes “everything happens for a reason” and this bracelet is such a great reminder that life is a journey and that I need to take time to enjoy all the moments.
I had the harvest hash topped with two poached eggs and I can honestly say that I will probably order this every time I go back. The hash was full of brussels sprouts, sweet potato, rutabaga, and parsnips and it was SO good. If you ever check out that brunch spot, you gotta get the hash!
I feel like I find new flavors and brands that I love each time I try the fizzy drink. My current fav is Rowdy Mermaid (local to Denver/Boulder!).
I have officially signed up for two races in May, so I’m starting to incorporate more running into my weekly routine to prep for my training runs. I can’t WAIT to get some long runs in with Bernie.
I plan on writing a detailed review, but I have to mention this as a workout I’ve loved this month. It’s a boot camp, circuit style workout that really pushes each individual participating and goes SO fast. It’s a great total body workout and I can’t wait to share more about it with you!
This book is all about the plants that we eat, how they have evolved over time, and how to select the fruits and veggies with the most nutrients. I feel like I’m learning so much from this book!
If you have listened to season one of Serial with Adnan’s case, then you will definitely want to listen to the daily trial updates from Sarah. They are super short episodes (about 15 minutes) and there are only three, but it’s great to listen to how things are going down and what they are doing to bring the case back to trial.
We always have so much fun exploring Denver when visitors come. It was such treat to have Kate here for a long weekend in February!
These guys are SO adorable together and are totally buds. I love watching them run and have a blast off leash at the dog park.
While I am excited for heat and sunshine, I can’t complain about being able to go to the mountains several weekends each month for a little fun in the snow 🙂
