BEST “ME-TIME” PICKS FOR SUMMER

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.

I’m teetering back and forth on whether or not to plan a summer getaway with my husband and kids. I want to getaway, but at the same time, I don’t want to pony up the cash when we have a trip planned for September. Just when I was about the pull the trigger on a vacation rental, guess what arrived on my doorstep?

The summer themed BabbleBoxx!!

For those of you who don’t know, BabbleBoxx is an exclusive invite-only, co-sampling box,  sent out to influencers that includes themed full size product samples from multiple brands.

This months box includes 5 of the best picks for pool, beach and play. The box arriving was a sign that I should save my vacation money and do something closer to home this summer.

Since I have a gym membership that includes use of the pool, steam room and suana I’m going to take advantage of the benefits more. I’m penciling something every week throughout the summer. I’ll plan one day each week during the summer to swim, detox in the sauna or open up my pores in the steam room.

Now I’m feeling way more excited about staying close to home this summer with some fun plans on the schedule and these 5 summer picks in this BabbleBoxx.

 

Pure Leaf Tea House Collection: Strawberry & Garden Mint and Spiced Chai 

BEST PICKS FOR POOL, BEACH, AND PLAY

The two teas in the box are part of the Pure Leaf Tea House Collection.

The flavors I have are Strawberry & Garden Mint and Spiced Chai with Organic Black Tea. Both teas come in a sleek glass bottle that I’ll probably upcycle when it’s empty and use for flower cuttings.

The Pure Leaf Strawberry & Garden Mint and Spiced Chai with Organic Black Tea are refreshing and light on the sweetness. If you’re looking for a sugary southern sweet tea, this isn’t it. This tea highlights the flavors from the tea leaf, fruit and spices.

This is definitely a tea I’d serve at summer events. The packaging, and Pure Leaf Tea House Collection flavors available in these 14 fl. oz bottles, would make a picnic or brunch with my girls a little fancier.

 

Cavit Rosé

BEST PICKS FOR POOL, BEACH, AND PLAY

Cavit Rosé is a limited edition summer wine made with raspberry, strawberry, cherry and watermelon with a blend of red grapes. I first heard about it a month ago and have been a fan ever since. It’s the first rosé I’ve ever tired and I like how it tastes paired with fish and chicken.

Cavit Rosé is imported from Italy, is affordable and a great choice for Summer. 

 

My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream

BEST PICKS FOR POOL, BEACH, AND PLAY

If you haven’t had Mochi and you like ice-cream, its’ time. Mochi is Japanese inspired chewy, sweet rice dough with delicious quality ice-cream wrapped inside. It’s a two part combination you’ve probably never experienced and I think you’ll like.

My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream comes in eight flavors and I’ve only tried strawberry so far. The strawberry Mochi ice-cream is sweet, soft and creamy while the outer part of the dessert is a pillowy sweet and chewy. There are six pieces in each box plus the unique flavor range includes green tea and mango. There’s a coupon for $1 off and a $1 cash back offer here.

To find a store in your area that sells the My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream use the product locator on their site. If you’re a coupon, here is a coupon for $1 off and a cash back offer from ibotta here.

 

Coobie: Lace Back Scoopneck & Lace Bralette

BEST PICKS FOR POOL, BEACH, AND PLAY

This BabbleBoxx included two Coobie bras, a brand I’d never heard of, but am glad to know about them now.

The Coobie Lace Back Scoopneck Seamless Bra (tan) has a pretty lace back panel that is surprisingly soft and stretchy. The bra has no wires and soft padded cups which adds to the comfort. The Coobie Lace Back Scoopneck Seamless Bra has a one size fits almost every body size chart that I was skeptical about. I wear a 34C and this bra fits perfectly. As you can see from the back, there are no clasps, just a stretchy panel of soft lace. This is the perfect lounge around or all day comfort bra.

The Coobie Lace Bralette (black) is my husbands favorite and you can see why. It’s a pretty, ultra feminine alternative for everyday! It has soft, comfortable, stretchy lace, and thin adjustable straps. The cups are lined with a soft see through fabric that isn’t scratchy against my skin.

There are no pads or wires in this bralette which makes this more of an at home bra for me. This bra is high on comfort but not support. There are several adjustable hooks on the back making it easy to find the best fit, but with no wires and such soft fabric, I experience spillage. The bralette material is comfortable but just not practical for me.

I will definitely buy the Coobie Lace Back Scoopneck Seamless Bra in black because it was the best of both worlds for me…comfort and support. I can wear it to the gym, running errands or just chilling at home.

Both bras are so reasonable priced and can be ordered at www.shopcoobie.com. All ApronsAndStilletos.com readers can take 30% off any order using the code BAB30 valid until June 2019|

 

Colleen Rothschild Beauty: Beauty Water & Sheer Renewal Cream

BEST PICKS FOR POOL, BEACH, AND PLAYWhen I saw these two products I was most excited about the Beauty Water. In the past year, I’ve added hair and skin hydrating waters to my beauty routine and it’s been a game changer.

I look for products that have natural ingredients and this Colleen Rothschild Beauty Water fit the bill. It includes coconut water, has cucumber extract, watermelon extract, and hyaluronic acid – all great for boosting hydration and plumping the skin. is a great summer multi-purpose mist. 

Benefits

coconut water – provides hydration and moisture

cucumber extract – tones, softens and reduces puffiness

watermelon extract – regenerates the skin

hyaluronic acid – a humectant that seals in moisture and makes the skin plump and hydrated

Just the few ingredients I mentioned should tell you that the mist also smells amazing. I mist my clean face in the morning and again at night before bed. 

The Colleen Rothschild Sheer Renewal Cream, is a oil-free moisturizer that provides weightless hydration, and the powdery finish to protect skin from environmental factors. The cream doesn’t feel thick on my face at oil. It goes on smooth and has had my skin glowing.

The smooth powdery finish can also double as a makeup primer, but it’s not obvious if you decide not to apply foundation. The finish just provided a base for the foundation to adhere to, so if you’re wondering if the finish is obvious, it definitely is not.

The Colleen Rothschild Beauty Water and Sheer Renewal Cream along with other products in the collection can be ordered using the links above. All ApronsAndStilletos.com readers can take 20% off all regular priced items using promo code BOXX20.
