Since we’ve had a lot more time at home this spring & summer, I’ve started to take stock of how I spend my time and my money. What products do I use regularly? Which are collecting dust? Which work double duty + provide effective & efficient support? It got me thinking about which products really hold their weight in gold around here and well I had to share!
Favorite Summertime Products
The LARQ Bottle! My hubs and I actually gifted these to each other for Valentines Day (pre COVID) but with all the germs floating around now, I love the portable purification functionality more than ever!
The LARQ Bottle is the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle + water purification system. It uses UV-C LED light to eliminate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle! Perfect for summer travel
Speaking of summer travel, my #1 packing essential is a cute hat! I love this Packable Mesa Straw Hat by Madewell. It’s durable for travel w/ kids, and the brim is a little wider –protecting your face from the sun!
Babo Botanicals Swim & Sport Wash. This shampoo/wash combo is my savior every summer! Zia’s hair turns chlorine green by June, and thankfully this stuff comes to my rescue! PLANT-BASED, HYPOALLERGENIC FORMULA & smells amazing too!
Seamless Racerback Bralette by GAP Body. Your new summer lounging partner! It feels like second skin and can easily become part of your daily wardrobe.
OXO greensaver Herb Keeper. The lid keeps the humidity just right, and adding water to the bottom of the container keeps your herbs hydrated and fresh! I bought my first one in March, and I can’t believe how crisp it keeps my asparagus & romaine! Simply add a tiny bit of water to the base and enjoy fresh greens & herbs for a week! Easy to clean too. I LOVE IT!
GYMBANDIT Quality Resistance Bands. Perfect for outdoor-summertime workouts and they travel easily! Simple pack a band or two in your suitcase and you’re ready to burn your glutes, at a moments notice! I also really love these Bala Bangles! I wear them on walks, during yoga or barre for a little extra bicep/tricep/shoulder burn! Both of these have been working double duty during COVID life at home!

Speaking of baths…Because we all need to be better about unplugging! This bath powder, made from raw, vegan ingredients, uses montmorillonite clay to remove the positively-charged radiation that accumulates in our bodies as we spend our days in front of the computer with our phone at arm’s length.
