Fun summer round up

Summer is in full swing here in central PA.  We’ve had everything from torrential rain and days in the high 90s to perfect days filled with sunshine, a light breeze, and no humidity.

And no complaints here…I love it all.

So here’s a quick round up of some of the stuff I’ve been loving this summer…

Let’s start with music.  I can’t get enough of “No Brainer” by DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Quavo and Chance the Rapper…perfect song to blast while driving around with the top down.  And I’m still loving “Familiar” by Liam Payne.  No idea why that one hasn’t caught on more.

Popsicles have been in heavy rotation this summer.  And why not?!  They’re fun and easy to make, and when you’re using healthy ingredients like Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel from Primal Kitchen Foods, they are actually doing something for your skin and body.  Here’s a recipe for mocha popsicles that I posted earlier in the summer…I’ve been having fun experimenting with other flavors too.

“I melt with you”

Recipes that are quick and paleo friendly but don’t involve any actual cooking are the name of the game in the summer.  I’ve been enjoying variations on egg salad, and my favorite is always my BLT egg salad.  Cold soups are awesome too.  Here you go:

This watercress soup is gorgeous…

Summer heat makes me sweat, but I don’t want to stink.  I have really struggled with the whole deodorant issue.  I want to avoid the creepy chemicals in conventional antiperspirants, but most more natural options are not effective for me.  And the ones that are contain so much baking soda that they irritate my skin.  Thankfully I’ve found a solution…Primally Pure Deodorant.  This is the first formula that has super clean ingredients, doesn’t irritate my skin, and actually works.  Here’s a link to my full review:

And last but not least, one of my go-to products all year long, but especially in summer, is the Coconut Body Oil from Annmarie Skincare.  I slather it all over my body when I get out of the shower to lock in moisture.  Love how the oil gives a subtle glow…it’s one of my little secrets for taking great beach pics.  Here’s the review I just posted…
