Current Favorites: Tieks, Nail Polish, & More!
On Friday I shared some of my recent grocery favorites but today I thought I’d switch it up and share some of my favorites outside of the kitchen!
Alex got me the Alta for my birthday and I love it. I had the Charge HR before which was great but I like how much smaller the Alta is and the interchangeable bands are nice. He got me the pale pink leather band which I wear 99% of the time. I also have the basic black band and a purple band which is nice to have when I’m running or working out. The features of the Alta are pretty similar to what I had, but I might write a whole post to compare them in case you’re in the market. But bottom line, I love this one. Here’s my original post outlining The Pros and Cons of the FitBit Charge HR.
I spent hours researching the most comfortable flats. Since I’m obsessed with my FitBit (obviously) I walk a lot. Our campus at work is pretty big and we have treadmill desks that I can use during the day so it wasn’t unusual for me to get almost 10K steps, just at work. Unfortunately, I was starting get tendonitis in my foot and I think it was largely due to the amount I was walking I was doing in flat sandals with no support. I finally decided it was worth investing in a nice pair of flats and these Tieks are perfect. They’re definitely a splurge but considering how much I walk, I think they’re worth it.
Essie Gel Polish
I know gel polish has been around for a while but I love the new Essie Gel Polish which doesn’t require any sort of light or special remover. It doesn’t last as long as professional gel polish but I can usually go a week with minimal chipping. I love being able to do it myself and I can always just give it a quick touch up during the week if I need to. I’m wearing the shade “Model Citizen” in the above photo. I like it because it’s bright enough to show but light enough that chips aren’t as noticeable.
Alright, time to go get ready for a little Labor Day brunch! I’m making these vegan chocolate avocado muffins and I’m currently trying not to eat them all before I leave!
What are some of your recent favorite things?
