staying active summer

Summer is my all time favorite season not only because it’s warm (I hate the cold) but there’s more activities to do and more opportunities to get outside. Being outside is my happy place. During the week, I try to get outside as much as I can by either taking a stroll during my lunch hour or meeting a friend for a trail run after work.

I just have to make up outdoor time to balance my time trapped in an office. You feel me?

Today I wanted to share a couple of products that I’m loving and I hope you love them too!

AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones

When I head outside I love listening to music so I always bring my AfterShokz Trekz Air. I’ve been a lover of AfterShokz for some time now and I love them for a number of reasons.

One of the main reason I started using AfterShokz is for safety reasons. I love running and working out with music but I also like hearing what’s going on around me. The open-ear design allows you to enjoy your music while staying safe.

The lightweight and wireless design is also something that I love about AfterShokz. No more getting tangled up with wired headphones or worrying about the ear buds not staying put.  I honestly can’t even feel these sometimes and forget I’m wearing them.

Canyon Red is the newest color and I’m absolutely obsessed. It’s a deep earthy red and it’s one of their most popular colors of 2018 for obvious reasons ?.


Brew Dr. Kombucha

I absolutely love Kombucha and drink it a couple times a week either during lunch or as a refreshing beverage in the evenings.

If you don’t know what kombucha is, it’s a fermented tea with live and active bacteria that helps maintain a healthy gut. Brew Dr. Kombucha is 100% RAW, unpasteurized, and non-alcoholic. My favorite flavor is the Strawberry Basil. It’s a combination of high-quality green tea with a hint of strawberries and basil. It’s the perfect refreshment for summer hands down.

Heliocare® Daily Use Antioxidant Formula

If you are spending any time outside this summer, protecting your skin is so important.


I never skip out on the sunscreen or Heliocare. Heliocare is a natural dietary supplement with antioxidant effects on skin. When you’re outside, your skin is exposed to free radicals in the environment that can damage and cause aging of your skin.

Heliocare contains Fernblock® PLE Technology, a powerful extract from a tropical fern found in Central and South America. This antioxidant extract helps eliminate free radicals to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin*.

So if you are spending lots of time outdoors or in the sun this summer, be sure to check out Heliocare.

Skratch Labs Drink Mixes, Energy Chews & Energy Bars

It’s been so hot these last couple of weeks. So exercising outside or hiking can cause you to become dehydrated and low on energy. That’s why I love having energy products and sports drink mixes on hand.

Skratch Labs has a bunch of different products for different situations. They have drink mixes, energy chews (love for hiking), and energy bars.

They have a super good sport hydration mix that I absolutely love. It has 2x more electrolytes than Gatorade and is non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

Hydrating is so important especially if you’re sweating a lot. Skratch Lab drink mixes are easy to put in a running pouch or your hydration pack to take on the go. I just dump mine in my water bottle and I’m good to go. ?

T-Rex® Tape

What is T-Rex® Tape you might ask? Well it’s a ferociously strong tape that is built to last inTany situation, climate, or extreme environment. This stuff is perfect for camping or even having in your car emergency kit. You never know when you’ll need some powerful duct tape.

T-Rex Tape is strong duct tape and water-resistant

Here are couple of uses for T-Rex® Tape:

  • Repair a hole in a pool float
  • Cover up a blister or cut
  • Fix a tent
  • Hold something together
  • Seal your snacks
