Friday Five [+ a total body workout]

Happy Fri-YAY! Back at it with five more of my most favorite things this week. I would love to hear what some of your favorite things are! Feel free to comment with your faves and/or drop your requests for anything else you’d like to see here.

*NOT sponsored – just sharing my favorite lifestyle products.*

1. Rossa Self Tanning – Tropical Bronze & Youth

I have tried every self tanner out there, and this one is h a n d s  d o w n THE best. The ingredients are organic, and it moisturizes your skin while developing into the most natural-looking bronze color. It lasts an entire week [through sweaty workouts and all], and does not rub off on clothes. Looking for a little more muscle definition? Tan it. I use the tropical bronze on my body and the youth on my feet, hands, and face.

2. Ninja Nutri Pro Blender

I threw my NutriBullet out for this guy. Shakes are my mid-morning snack every day, and I love that I can blend them up in the morning, screw on a lid, and pack the cup in my work bag. It comes with two cups and two lids, and they’re dishwasher safe! Fast and efficient – and it gets all the ice on the first blend – highly recommend.

3. Glass Blender Bottle

This one is more than just cute [but that just might be why it caught my eye]. I love that this bottle holds 24 ounces and displays the measurements on the side. The top is wide enough that you can easily scoop pre-workout/bcaas/etc… in without having to unscrew the lid. It’s dishwasher safe, chemical free, and comes in several colors. Bonus – it has a detachable loop. I have seen them in store at Marshall’s and TJ Maxx!

4. Pescience Prolific Pre-Workout

This is my go-to pre-workout drink, and here’s why – it works. Every single time. It is not full of stimulants, and it won’t make you feel jittery. I have been using it for several years, and it still works every day. If you’re a pre-workout drinker, that’s a big deal. It tastes good [yes, seriously], and it always puts me in a good mood. I love to stack it with their High Volume pump formula. Super affordable, and can be found in store at Vitamin Shoppe.

5. Lululemon Align Pant 25″

So, this is by far the priciest item on here, and I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t skeptical about spending this much money on a pair of leggings. Don’t get me wrong, I have many pairs of leggings from TJ Maxx that I l o v e. BUT, guess how many times I’ve worn them since splurging on these? Yep, none. Not a single time. It’s true – you will try these on and never go back. They were worth every penny. They are lightweight and seamless [smooth is an understatement], and they are NOT tight at the top. The secret to abs? Good lighting and these leggings. Jk, kind of. I’m 5’7″ and the 25″ length is the perfect length for me. I wear a size 4.
