As my first summer working full time, this summer feels a little different than usual. Because I have a busy schedule, I love embracing the little things of summertime. While I have been getting into a routine at work and home, a couple of favorite foods, decor items, music and lifestyle favorites have surfaced to my attention over the past couple weeks. Here are some of my summertime faves!
1. Coconut Water
I tried coconut water a couple months ago, and while I still don’t like to drink it by itself—I LOVE it in smoothies. It adds a unique sweetness and it’s perfect for making piña colada smoothies (one of my go-to drinks in the summer)!
2. Passionfruit Candles
I have been loving my Passion Fruit Saigon Destinations candle from World Market. It is a such a perfect scent for summer and takes you right to a tropical island. The people at the store said it was one of their popular candles, and I can see why!
3. Mason Jars
While mason jars are a lifetime favorite, I have lately been loving them for work! I am able to take smoothies and snacks on the go and plus they are so cute to use, too!
4. Homemade Popsicles
I bought a popsicle container from Kohl’s a few weeks ago and now, popsicles have become one of my favorite snacks to have after work to cool off from a warm day. I haven’t tried too many recipes yet, but I have been making simple popsicles with orange and mango juice with added fruit. Let me know if you have any popsicle recipes that you recommend!Summertime is in full swing! What are your summer favorites this season? Click To Tweet
5. Walk the Moon on Spotify
If you’re wondering what’s been on my Spotify recently, it’s been all of Walk the Moon’s songs. I have been obsessed with the song, “Shut Up & Dance,” (like the rest of the world) since March, and now I’m enjoying all of their songs now!
6. Açai Smoothie Packs
Because I’m a tad bit obsessed with fruit, I had to include these açai smoothie packs from Sambazon, which make great açai smoothies and smoothie bowls. I love the way these taste, especially mixed in with some wild blueberries and strawberries. Definitely pick these up from your local grocery store and make your own açai smoothie bowl! This is a food trend you won’t want to miss out on!
What are your summertime favorites? I would love to know! I love how summertime lets us be creative with new hobbies like cooking or outdoor activities. It’s a perfect time to discover new favorite items and things to enjoy!
