Summer glow up time is here! There are so many things that I am freshening up in my personal and professional life between creating healthier daily habits and starting my day off with affirmations that really get me going.
I’ve learned that you are responsible for creating your own happiness, so keep it fresh, make some changes, and be proud of what you like and what works best for you. By now you know that I only share things that I actually LOVE and use on a regular basis, so I want to share with you some of my latest favorites that have helped me get my hot girl summer on in full swing. Set your day right and keep it that way with my ride or die summer products!
Woo More Play If you listen to the Cellfie Show then you know that Woo is the BEST lube ever. The Woo Coconut Love Oil is the perfect gift to treat yourself. Not only does it make sex better, but it also tastes like a vanilla cupcake.
It’s natural and organic, doesn’t mess with your natural PH, and can double as a massage oil. Woo takes it back to the basics with only 4 ingredients and no nasty chemicals that are found in traditional brand lubes.
The base is unrefined coconut oil which is PH balancing and it is lightly sweetened with Stevia and vanilla essence to make it absolutely delicious if you eat it. This is something everyone should have sitting on their nightstand for a sexy summer! Keep it spicy!!! Check out Woo More Play Here!
Vive Organic Simplicity is key for me this summer as well as saving time so bring on all the tasty organic shots from Vive! Vive Shots were formulated by a doctor and are all rooted in whole body wellness.
We all know we need to be incorporating more fruits and vegetables into our daily diet but it can be hard when you’re always working or on the go. Vive Organic wellness shots are the ultimate immune system strengthener that I enjoy drinking daily during my lunch break. When I start to feel my body getting run down I will sometimes take multiple shots a day. Vive’s Energy + Focus Shot (the perfect brainpower and caffeine boost I need) and Immunity Boost are my absolute favorite to spice up my hydration and well-being.
I also love the spicy and smooth orange undertones of their Turmeric flavor that makes me feel so good immediately after downing it. Each flavor is full of powerful, organic ingredients that boost your health and are great to keep on hand in the fridge or cooler this summer.
Vive prides themselves in sustainable farming practices with no junky additives, dyes or sugars. I feel good knowing I am supporting sustainable farming and treating my body to the highest quality nutrients available. Simplified wellness and a great summer afternoon pick me up? Yes please!!!
Beam A true staple in my life! I use all of Beam’s products to help me thrive both mentally and physically. I would have to say my absolute “can’t live without” product is their Beam Dream.
Sleep is on top on that immune health list for me this summer as studies show adequate sleep helps T-cells fight off infection. With a constantly fluctuating schedule, it was hard form me to get into a good routine. These past several months, Beam Dream, has become an essential part of my nighttime routine.
The Dream powder is a bedtime blend of sleep enhancing vitamins, minerals, nano cbd and more, and when mixed with warm plant based milk or hot water, it becomes the perfect guilt-free, sleep-inducing, delicious cup of cocoa-without any added calories or sugar. Think a hot chocolate treat to help your body and mind wind down for a better night’s sleep.
I have also been upping my workout time and making it more of a priority this summer. I like to get my sweat on so it is important to me to refuel my hydration with something more than just water (also can we agree that water is boring...). Elevate Recovery from Beam is made for active recovery. The Elevate Recovery hydration packets work quickly to restore hydration with coconut water and Himalyan sea salt with a slightly sweet and refreshing lemon flavor.
This hydrating powder brings your body non-gmo collagen peptides to support healthy joints, skin and hair at the same time, branched-chain amino acids restore tired muscles and help your body fight fatigue, so not only are the packets hydrating, but Elevate can target specific needs: digestive balance, enhanced energy and supportive recovery. Not only is it fantastic for recovering after a sweat session but also for recovering after a night out.
Just Thrive Real tea? I have struggled with digestive issues for the longest time. I knew I needed to take back control of my gut health this summer which is why I have been taking Just Thrive Probiotics every day for the last several months. It only took 2 months of routinely taking Just Thrive Probiotics before I noticed an incredible difference in how I feel every day. I was intrigued to learn about spore based probiotics and how they are a completely different category of probiotics.
The human microbiome project that launched in 2012 helped shift the unique focus of Just Thrive to be spore based rather than Lactobacillus based. In fact, their award winning probiotic is the ONLY product on the market with Bacillus Indicus HU36- a probiotic strain that turns your gut into an antioxidant factory! Most of those probiotics will die off by the time they reach the intestines because of harsh stomach acids making them ineffective. In fact, it has been shown that Just Thrive probiotics survives up to 1,000 times as much as other products on the market.
When you swallow the Just Thrive probiotics they are protected and stay dormant until they get to the small intestines. They then stay there and do their magic for up to 21-28 days which is incredible! These probiotics truly work as a perfect tool to restore the gut microbiome’s health.
Lane Change Cute and comfy is the hot girl move this summer. Feel good and look good with Lane Change! They have seriously perfected classy athleisure with their line of loungewear. You know I love a day off where I can relax but still feel my best with clothing that lifts in all the right places (if you know, you know) as well as being extremely soft. I also enjoy putting on a cute loungewear set after my post shift showers.
They have the cutest, minimalist packaging with a handwritten note in each order which I am here for! Super high quality for an affordable price. I could live in the white Laguna Tank Top and never want to take it off! I can’t wait to add more pieces to my collection because I am obsessed.
I am all about advocating for small businesses, and love that Lane Change is a local business near me, women owned and gives a percentage of proceeds to help fight homelessness in L.A. 8% off all proceeds goes to employing women on Skid Row, making a difference in the future of fashion by empowering, employing and educating women transitioning out of hardship.
Don’t be shy- let me know what you have been loving lately. I love keeping a running list on the notes on my phone of products to try out and want to know which ones you are obsessed with!
