TGIF Favs 1

Happy Friday, friends!!

I'm exhausted this morning. Coming to the end of a sinus infection, thanks allergies and weather changes AND the Boom decided to get up at 4:25 this morning. I also could NOT fall asleep last night, finally had to take a Nyquil to quiet the thoughts.

1. I know the insulated bottles and cups have been around for a while now, but I found the most amazing straw cap and now I can't live without it! When I went to Costa Rica I was looking for a cheaper, black s'well'ish bottle and found it in Iconiq. They also had the option of a straw cap and since 95% of my drinks I drink through a straw I was so on board. It's awesome and I hope they make it for the larger bottles soon!

2. I've been making my own oatmeal packets and loving it!! 1/2 C old fashion oats, 1 tsp chia seeds or more if I don't measure, 1 tsp brown sugar or coconut sugar or I've also been using a squirt of Agave, cinnamon to taste and 1 Tbsp Craisins or some fresh blueberries (put in on day of). Or add in sunflower seeds, sliced nuts. I put in just enough water to cover the dry stuff and microwave for 2 minutes. You can also do 1/3 C steel cut oats for 3 mins at 50% power.

3. I'm always struggling with my sunglasses case, the microfiber cloth and the amount of space I have in my small purse. When my friend pulled her glasses out in a case that also cleaned I was blown away and had to have one for myself AND to give to all my friends, lol.

4. In Florida, you can't really make it without your flip flops. Some people do but I am not one of them. I typically find a style or brand I like and continue with them from year to year. It used to be Nike but several years ago I discovered Roxy Flip Flops and now when my flip flops die that's the brand I start researching. I'm glad I found this Lola style that comes in black and tan after a major fail when I bought these. They were cute, but the weight of them hurt my feet if I wore them too long. Who knew flip flops could be too heavy.
