A Few Of My Favorite Things

A Few Of My Favorite Things

Happy Friday, my friends! Can you believe it's the end of September already? Where did the past month go?!? Today I'm sharing a few of my favorites that I loved during the month of September!

I received some of the items below for collaboration. I only share the things I love most with my readers!

Raxtin Clothing

Who’s ready for Halloween clothing?!?  Lily and Liam were so excited to receive Hocus Pocus
shirts from Raxtin Clothing Co! Truthfully, there isn’t much Halloween clothing available for
their age group in regular stores, so I opt to shop small because there’s a lot more to choose
from. Plus, I love to support small shops! They thought it was so much fun to match in their
gender neutral Ain’t No Hocus Pocus shirts!







When I was offered a collaboration with Kohl’s and Fitbit, I was so excited! I’ve never tried a
Fitbit before...actually, I haven’t even worn a watch in years. My actual post is coming up in
two weeks, but I had to give a shout out to one of my biggest favorites during the month of
September! I didn’t realize I would love it THIS much. Truthfully, I only take it off to charge it,
and it really does motivate me during my workouts. The Fitbit was a game changer for me,
and I can’t wait to share more!


Rain Gear

Like many people, we had a VERY rainy September. I always make sure the kids have
proper rain gear, but never buy much for myself. It’s usually just a hoodie, an old umbrella,
and fingers crossed that I don’t get soaked. After getting stuck in the rain repeatedly for kids’
activities last Spring, I knew that had to change. I already professed my love for my pink
Hunter boots that I got for my birthday, and my love for them hasn’t changed! I also made
sure to buy myself a raincoat and an extra large umbrella, and they really came in handy this
month. Now, my coat didn’t hold up as well as I had hoped during a torrential downpour, but
then again, I don’t think many would. But I’m so glad I finally took care of myself! It made
taking the kids out in the rain much more tolerable!


Strawberry Banana Smoothies & NutriBullet

Homemade Strawberry Banana smoothies have been my staple for the past month. Almost
every day, after I get back from my morning run, I whip one up in my beloved NutriBullet. I
love the fact that I can make one or two servings in just a few seconds!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe
Serves 2


  • 1 1/2 bananas
  • 6 large frozen strawberries
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 2 tsp local honey
  • Water to fill line
Make it:

  1. Put bananas, strawberries, honey, and ice in the blender.
  2. Add water to the fill line.
  3. Blend!



My eyes are horribly light-sensitive, so I have to wear sunglasses year round. I was so
excited to try out a pair of polarized sunglasses from Sunski! They are backed by a lifetime
warranty, made from recycled materials, and Sunski donates 1% of sales to environmental
non-profits! I always love to support companies that give back!


AND...This Week On The Blog:

Not too much! Life has been busy and exhausting!

  1. Wow that you got to collaborate for a fitbit! I just switched from my plain old boring fitbit to an Apple Watch, but your fitbit looks fancy!

  2. I can't believe it's the last weekend of September, either! Wowza! I love that your took care of you with some rain gear. I've been wanting a nice rain jacket some some time now, but of course, I'll see something for the kids and choose that instead. #momlife How cool about the FitBit - I don't have one, but I'm sure it'd motivating, encouraging and intriguing to see those steps! Mmmm...smoothies are the BEST! Honey - what a great thing to add! I'll be remembering that one! :) Have a nice last day of September!!! :) :) :)

  3. I'm glad you're loving your FitBit, and those Hocus Pocus shirts are ADORABLE!!! I could really use a raincoat myself. lol


  4. Nutribullets are the best, I have never felt healthier, or eaten as much spinach, haha! Joanne x


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
