I may have not looked so chipper here if someone would have told me that my iced Aiya matcha latte would spill all over the floor ten minutes later. 😅 Good thing I had a whole pack of their to-go packets. Made a new one shortly after! 👏🏼
July favorites! 🥳 July was jam packed which made it difficult to choose just five things to share.
Food: Cauli-oat bakes, you probably could have guessed this one. I’ve been hooked on these bakes because they taste delicious and it feeds all of us! My top bakes have been my mixed berry cauli-oat bake and my cacao cauli-oat bake. I know adding riced cauliflower to oatmeal can weird some people out but I think it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
Drink: Iced matcha latte, Aiya matcha to-go packets have changed my matcha game. I love having these packets in my backpack for times when I’m out with Poppy and need a quick pick me up. You can add them to milk with manuka honey or simply mix with water! There is no wrong way to use these packets. Here’s how I’ve been enjoying my Aiya matcha recently: 1/2 cup nut milk, 1/2 cup filtered water, 1 tsp manuka honey, and one Aiya matcha to-go packet. Mix together and pour over ice. TOO EASY!
Exercise: Sprint intervals. I have been perfecting this sprint interval series for ten years! I used to think the only way to run on a treadmill was distance but then one day I started doing sprints and I never looked back! Here’s my series below (please note that this one was written for Joel and his speed preference. Go at your own pace and what you feel comfortable with):
– warmup jog for 3 minutes
– 7.2 jog one minute
– 8.6 sprint one minute
– 7.4 jog one minute
– 8.9 sprint one minute
– 7.6 jog one minute
– 9.2 sprint one minute
– 7.8 jog one minute
– 9.5 sprint one minute
– 8.0 jog one minute
– 9.8 sprint one minute
– 8.2 jog one minute
– 10.0 sprint one minute
Item to wear: Boy brow, how am I just finding out about this?! I’ve always really been into my brows. I’ve had big brows my entire life, except for that one time in eighth grade where I tweezed them down to pencil thin. Besides that my brows have always had a mind of their own and the Boy Brow by Glossier just made styling them so easy and flawless. I bought the brown shade and I can see myself buying this product for the rest of my life.
A favorite of Poppy’s: Lion stuffed animal from our zoo trip. If you’ve seen my Instagram stories then you know the lion I’m talking about. We went to the San Diego Zoo back in December and she gravitated towards this yellow lion in the gift shop. We couldn’t resist getting it for her and about a month ago she stated really loving it. She takes him everywhere and just recently started taking her naps with him. It’s so cute to see her hug her stuffed animal so hard. She really is the sweetest baby I know! I’m just wondering what do I do when he needs a wash… there are no care instructions on his tag.
And that’s July! I can’t wait to see what August has in store for us. It’s going to be just as jam packed I’m sure with Poppy’s first birthday being August 17th. Comment your favorite things right now below or any care instructions you have for a stuffed animal. Cheers!
