    DOWNLOAD

    Vinted | I have been going through “spring cleaning” fever since last year and really needed to re-home some of my bags, totes, shoes and accessories. Why do I need 45 iPhone cases? Anyways, Vinted is a free app (and website) that allows you to sell your stuff, for a small fee. They handle shipping costs and deposit the funds right into your bank account. Cha-ching!

    LISTEN

    Hello by Adele | Nothing less than AH-MAZING ever comes from Adele and she delivers on that with the release of Hello. As Mic states, “Taking “Hello” as a song addressed to herself, these lines become about a woman looking to rediscover who she is after years of not knowing.” Just don’t listen to this at the gym unless you want to cry all the tears. Team T2T are HUGE Adele fans, so we cannot wait for this album release!

    LISTEN

    Spotify Playlist :: Mind Right | There’s something about a playlist that starts out with the song “Started from The Bottom” by Drake. It just gets me going for the day. Mix that up with a little old school Nelly and call it a day! I get this little head nod going and I just get so pumped out to be doing what I’m doing. This playlist is great for working out, working, reading a book? lol, really anything that you’re doing that needs a good pumped up playlist to go along with it!

    WATCH

    “Wet Hot American Summer – First Day of Camp” | Netflix has some great series, this being one of the top 5! | I’ve never watched the movie, but this star studded cast made this series absolutely hilarious. I ended up watching the whole first season while sitting on my couch re-designing the T2T website! It’s amazing!

    READ

    THE SKIMM is the best thing EVER | Click this link to sign up NOW it’s the best thing you’ll do all day! So I don’t know if you’ve heard about this yet, but the Skimm is seriously the best thing since sliced bread. I want to be  way more in the know about what’s going on in the world, but I really just never have time, and different news channels report different things. BUT THE SKIMM just gives you a quick rundown of what’s going on in the world, and delivers just the facts. They read, you skim. It’s perfect. Everyone needs the skimm in their life. It’s really made me so much more informed and I can actually have conversations everyday!

    SIP

    Strawberry Lemonade Vodka | Sign me up! Duh, my favorite things… Strawberries, lemonade and duhhhh Vodka! I’ll be floating down the river this weekend with my favorite CrossFit friends and I literally googled “best drinks to make while floating down a river”. Little did I know, that google search came up with nothing hahaha, basically telling me, if you think you can make a girlie mixed drink while floating down the river, you shouldn’t be floating down the river. Grab a 30 rack of natty light and your best american flag headband and call it a day. BUT then obvi, I went to pinterest and found this. Done and done, and I bet my friends drinking the ever so refreshing natty light, will be begging for my delish concoction!

    I have nothing special, I’m snacking on crustless peanut butter and jelly and cheez-it’s this weekend | My favorite summer activity is really floating down the river with friends – and that’s EXACTLY what I’m doing this weekend. So, I’m packing up my vodka lemonade, grabbing my bacon habanero chips, pb&j and cheez-it’s and turning off my cell phone. I hope you all do the same. And as always, keep being awesome!

    LISTEN

    F*ck That – A Guided Meditation” by Jason Headley | Warning – Definitely NSFW and NC-17, but hilariously funny. I’m not one for meditating, per se, but this is amazing – and oddly relaxing.

    WATCH

    Real Housewives Franchise | I have no shame. I admit my guilty pleasure in the form of anything Real Housewives. Currently, I am pulling double duty with Orange County AND New York. However, this just mean two glorious, uninterrupted hours of television since no one in the house can stand to watch it with me (#bonus).

    READ

    Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives” by Gretchen Rubin | This book is on its way to me, courtesy of the magical Amazon Prime. I loved The Happiness Project, so I’m excited to bust this out as a beach read!

    SIP

    Water | I know, right? How boring! But considering that 60% of your body is water, it is kind of important to incorporate into your day. A good rule of thumb is half your body weight in ounces. I always find that I drink more when I drink from a straw, but that’s just me. Don’t forget that fruits and veggies count towards that water intake (watermelon, anyone?).

    SNACK

    ThinkThin Bars | One word: AWESOME. It is not very often that you can find a healthy snack that you can feel good about eating AND can satisfy a sweet tooth. I was skeptical at first, but now I do not know what I would do without the Chunky Chocolate Peanut deliciousness in my life. Actually, yes I do. I’d go for the Snickers in the checkout line.

    WATCH

    Choices: Who Will You Be?” by DICK’s Sporting Goods | This Dick’s commercial is amazing. While Dick’s has a way to go in woman’s apparel, I have a soft spot for them because they started in my “home town.” This video reminds me of why I started and why I continue.

    READ

    Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty | This book is a perfect poolside read and is being made into a limited HBO series starring Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.

    SIP

    “The Sound of Sports,” episode 127, 99% Invisible podcast | A fascinating peek inside an oft forgotten corner of the world of sports broadcasting: Sound. When we think of the sound of sports on TV or radio, it’s generally commentary. But sports broadcasts would be nothing without all the sounds that are behind the commentary– the crowds, the kicks, the thwacks, and the grunts. Dennis Baxter has spent the last 20 years designing the sound of sport for the highest level of athleticism – the Olympics – and he guides listeners through his process in this hour-long podcast.

    “The Body Post,” from blogger Kate Baer | A quick but totally worthwhile read from one of the funniest, realest bloggers I’ve come across. If you’re a female with a body, you should read this.

    SIP

    Virgin strawberry lemonade mimosas from Mary Beth over at Casey Wiegand | swap out the club soda for champagne and you’ve got yourself a super yum adults-only summertime drink.

    SNACK

    Watermelon lime sorbet from Shaina over at Food For My Family | I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for at least two years now. It’s definitely happening this weekend.
