Happy Friday, friends! Welcome to a new series on SMT called Friday Favorites. In an effort to get back to rounding out the content on SMT I wanted share some of the things that I'm loving and actually using lately. I share some of these things in my Instastory snippets sometimes and seeing how I usually get some questions/comments when I do I thought sharing the items here might be a good idea. The items you're going to find in this new monthly series won't necessarily stick to a theme or have anything to do with one another. I just want to share these things with you that I love and hope maybe you find yourself a new favorite as well.
I'm obsessed with this brand of Ghee but more so this madagascar vanilla flavor. It's so freakin' good. I love it on my Barely Bread cinnamon raisin loaf in the morning. It's so good I want to eat it by the spoonful. If you're not sure what Ghee is it's basically butter without the dairy. Bonus for the dairy-free. It's like a clarified butter. Butter is composed of butterfat, milk solids, and water. And Ghee is butter with the milk solids and water removed. That's my non-technical description. It's so good for cooking and can be used in place of butter.
This brand makes other flavors like Garlic and Himalayan Pink Sea Salt but this one is my favorite.
The husband turned me onto the HydroFlask and after seeing his I had to get my own. I can't get enough of mine. I like my water super cold especially in the summer and these not only keep the liquids cold for hours it doesn't sweat on the outside. I can't wait to throw some iced coffee in here.
I recently changed from using Coconut Oil to using Jojoba Oil as it doesn't clog my pores. I use jojoba oil to remove my makeup, after I shower as an all over body moisturizer, on my face, and even make the husband use it on his beard. Because Jojoba Oil closely resembles sebum (the oil produced by our skin) it's a great all natural moisturizer. It's so versatile and good for your skin. I've been planning to write a dedicated post to it because I love it so much.
You know I love my coffee and for the last two years this Slingshot cold brew concentrate has been my at home hot weather go-to.
Don't get me wrong, La Colombe will always be my ride or die but it's not always convenient for me to get it. So I gotta have options. I love good coffee and this is really good. I love how convenient it is and because it's a cold brew concentrate I don't need a lot. I can just add cold water or some almond milk and I'm good to go.
Besides drinking this black, I love to add a splash of almond milk with a few dashes of cinnamon. Yum.
I'm trying to be a little more conscious of my waste and I used to use so many ziploc bags until I found these (Re)Zip bags from Blue Avocado. I love them for snacks, beauty products, and for traveling. Apparently, one of these reusable bags replaces almost 300 disposal bags. That's a lot of plastic not going into the environment.
The only gripe I have is that the seal is hard to close on a few that I have. It's not like this on every single one I have (I have about 6) but on a few it's like the seal closures don't align so it makes a bit of pain. Other than that I love them.
