A peek at my food + fun favorites for the month of August. Leave your favorite discoveries below!

Lululemon Align Crop (and pants). OH MY GOSH. My leggings life is changed forever. These feel like butter. They are so insanely stretchy and soft and wonderful. You cannot see through them whatsoever. I am done with wunder unders – these are where it’s at. Incredible.

Lavender Melon Kevita Master Kombucha. I talk about this constantly but this is a new flavor I tried while on vacation. It is my new favorite flavor – perhaps even more than the grapefruit. So delish.

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover. I know I mentioned this already in my Tuesday Things, but this book was SO good. I finished it in one day, which I haven’t even come close to doing since Max was born.

Cherry Republic Chocolate Cherry Coffee Beans. Oh heck yes!! I’ve been making cold brew with this and do I even need to say how much I adore it?

Pitaya packs. Repeat, but still obsessed. You can see how I make mine here.

Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. Sooo I’m almost positive that I whined and complained when the backpack trend came back in. I don’t think I’d be interested in one if I didn’t have a kid, but wow – I love this bag and it’s a lifesaver. I only have been using crossbody bags the last few years, but they tend to be smaller. Max is at the age where I still need to carry a few things (wipes, maybe 1 diaper, tons of snacks and water) but don’t need a huge diaper bag. I always left mine in the car most of the time anyway.  I love the size of this bag. I love the leather.

Gravie app. This is what I’ve been using to quickly add words on to my instagram videos. It’s SO easy!

Trader Joes Hot and Sweet Jalapenos. My brine-loving palette is absolutely nuts over these.

Quay Cherry Bomb sunglasses. I’ve mostly worn the same pair of sunglasses for three (!!!) years, but I LOVE these ones. The color, the fit – so cute.

On that same note, I’ve just been filming those videos with my Samsung nx300. God I love this camera so much. I’m having a ton of fun making those videos, just shooting what I’m making when I want to make it. No stress. I use this tiny tripod and it’s awesome. I also got some great shots of the sunset with that tripod in Michigan!

Love Crunch Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Granola. This should come with a warning label.

These Greenroom notebooks from Target. School supplies will forever be my love language. I have a few projects I’m working on and I always need a new notebook.

Honeycup mustard. This might sound ridiculous but we love this so much. My mom has bought this for as long as I can remember (20 years?) and it’s the one mustard that Eddie loves. We go through phases, using a jar in a week and then forgetting about it for awhile. We’re back on the bandwagon. We can sometimes find this at my local grocery store, but I can only find it to link on amazon right now.

Instagram stories! There I said it. I love it.
