Korres Lip Butter: Pomegranate  //  I went to the VIB sale with Amanda earlier this month and picked up a lot of things, most of which I honestly haven't even used yet.  This lip butter is definitely not one of those things.  It was a last minute splurge after I had already taken items out of my basket to make sure I wasn't spending too much, and I'm so glad that I picked it up!  I got a couple of other lip products, but this one is, by far, my favorite of the bunch.  Would you believe me if I told you that I love it more than the Baby Lips I mentioned a couple of months ago?  Yeah.  It's that good.

Kayla Itsines BBG Workouts  //  Once it starts to get warmer outside I get crazy motivated to get active again.  Typically I reach for my Insanity DVD's, or I spend two weeks on an elliptical and call it good.  I'm so stoked that my family introduced me to Kayla Itsines' workouts!  It's a 12 week program mixed with HIIT + LIIT workouts, and they can all easily be done in the comfort of your own home with some improvising!  I swap out every other day with one of the HIIT workouts, and on the other days I do a yoga class through the Yoga Studio app on my iPhone.

Nikon 1 J4  //  I've mentioned that I got a new camera quite a few times, but I don't think I've actually taken the time to talk about how amazing it is!  The fact that I'm able to get similar quality photos (including bokeh!) with a camera that can fit in my purse vs carrying my DSLR everywhere I go is reason enough to invest in this camera!  It has interchangeable lenses, 1080p HD video and has been a complete lifesaver.  I highly recommend it!

Izze Blackberry Soda  // I went grocery shopping by myself last week while Sean worked late at the office.  Grocery dates are kind of our thing, but when he's not able to come with me I tend to splurge on things that I typically wouldn't buy ... Like this new blackberry soda obsession of mine.  Seriously, how have I never had this before now!?
