Identity Lingerie

I really want to share with you about these great pieces. I am not really into lingerie but I love my pajama sets and the material is everything to me. Identity Lingerie has amazing quality and material. So soft and comfortable. The details on each piece make them gorgeous too, so you can’t beat that.

This company is based in Europe and one thing I love about the website is that on the left hand side you can select USD and the site switches to show you the US price. I mean this is amazing because that is the one thing I cannot stand about so many overseas sites is that I really have no clue what I am paying in the end.

Everything is very well made so these pieces will last and stay looking great. Bridal Parties, you must check out their matching robes and sets for bachelorette parties you have coming up.

I would say that I am normally a small and the tops fit great but the bottoms were a little tighter in my booty than I like so I would go up to a medium. Check their sizing chart before ordering but they do have a 30 day return policy.

FabFitFun – Spring 2019

I was so excited for my FabFitFun box to arrive! Every time I open a box I get so excited to try the new products and see what fun surprises are in store. The boxes have introduced me to so many brands and products that have become staples in my home.

Here’s what was in my box!

Unplug Meditation Aromatherapy Diffuser: I love the egg shape and the fun wave of light colors as it’s on. It puts off a great amount of scent throughout a large space. Currently it’s working perfect in my home office because it uses a USB plug so very portable and easy to use anywhere.

Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Facial: The smell of this cream is divine. I also love the glass container, perfect for recycling. The product is used to even out skin, repairs fine lines, moisturizes and reduces black spots/discolorations. I love a night cream because who doesn’t want to wake up with better skin. The company also really cares about the ingredients in their products.

Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons: I was so excited about these. I have been wanting new measuring spoons. I love the copper look and the quality is great. The ring is very easy to take a spoon on and off for use BUT they are hand wash only!

THE2BANDITS Athens Necklace: I have really been in to simple necklaces I can layer with others in my collection and this will fit in perfectly. The bar has an iridescent color changing piece that makes it match any outfit you could want to wear this with.

Tula Purifying Face Cleanser: Washing my face is one of my favorites parts of the morning and I am very intrigued by the use of probiotics. This is a cruelty free product and is ingredient conscious. The probiotics are said to help gently remove dirt and lock in moisture. I can’t wait to find out

Manna Kadar Champagne Body Scrub: This is a huge jar of body scrub first of all! It has charcoal and dead sea minerals to give a gently body scrub removing dead skin cells. This will give your body a refreshed skin glow.

IMG_5492

Ouai Leave in Conditioner: The smell of this product is also amazing. The first think I always do is smell my stuff, who knows why. This is to smooth, soften, detangle hair and protect against heat damage. I am also a huge fan of Jen Atkin.

Over the next few weeks as I use the products more and more I will share additional thoughts on how they work and what I will keep using. Let me know what you are most excited about.

R&G Fitness

I love to try new workouts and gyms well, R&G Fitness was really outside of my comfort zone. It is group fitness that focuses on weights and dynamic movements with cardio mixed it. The focus of form and pushing your limits is amazing. I enjoy what the coach’s give me form critiques or edits because I can’t always see what I am doing and form only enhances the benefits of working out.

I don’t always push myself on my own as hard as I should with the amount of weight I use but R&G sure does and I love it. It gave me that boost of confidence that I can lift that 25lb weight. Maybe not for many reps but I can do it.

The class has a warm up and then breaks into groups to rotate though different stations and then you come back together at the end for a stretch. I love that it is different every time focusing on all muscle groups and pushing you forward. Every person I met was welcoming, kind and supportive of each other weather it was a first time or a seasoned vet at the gym. Everyone cheers for each other and really helps to motivate you to do more.

You can download their app and get a free trial but trust me you are going to want to stay a member! I can’t wait to go back for more, even if I can’t feel my arms! 🙂

Just Strong

I am so excited to share about the Just Strong clothing brand. I have been trying out their gear and I truly love the pieces. The fabric is breathable, supportive and durable. The designs are motivating and great looking on the clothes. They are about empowering women and pushing though not only your strength battles but every battles in life and just supporting each other and moving forward.

The symbol – the squat.

“The squat is the perfect analogy for life – it’s about standing back up after something heavy gets you down and what better way to present this analogy by using it in our branding. We are here to empower and motivate strong women from every walk of life.”

They have some fun tanks and t’s with great sayings and quotes such as “Will Gym For Pizza” so true and fun. They have different cuts and styles of leggings and sports bras for the many different body types. I truly recommend you give them a try.

Erwin Park

We have continued to explore the parks and trails near us and we recently visited Erwin Park a couple times. It is very natural and offers lots of trains and picnic areas with plenty of parking. We tried out several different trails and really enjoyed them all. I will say they are not really marked so be careful when you start some of them they don’t loop around and go for a couple miles.

This hills offer a great workout and beautiful views.

I use the Endomondo App so luckily I can see on a map where we went and are able to decide what we want to do. I recommend using something like this on trails you don’t know.

I was also able to try out some new workout gear from Just Strong. I really liked the fabric and the quality while hiking. I didn’t have to pull up or readjust my leggings or sports bra (which can be very annoying while trying to be active) I would recommend giving them a try and use the code WYNNSPARKS10 for a discount at checkout. http://www.juststrong.com

I love the writing and the look. Give them a try!

Hutchins BBQ

Since we moved to McKinney we had been told by multiple people to try Hutchins BBQ. So we headed that way on a Saturday night and I am so glad we did. We went at a great time and the line was hardly anything. (We have heard it can get pretty long) The smell was so inviting and as you are ordering they slice the meat fresh in front of you and you can see all the different cuts and types to choose from. You then walk through a bar of side dishes and meet the cashier. They run this line very smoothly and efficiently so you aren’t waiting long. However make sure to plan ahead you don’t want to get there and they are out of your favorite type of meat.

I was so excited to sit down and eat. I had pulled pork and brisket with macaroni & cheese with coleslaw. The meat was tender and melted in my mouth. The macaroni and coleslaw were delicious compliments to the meat, they weren’t too saucy and runny or over dressed. It was for sure the best bbq I had ever had. I would go back everyday if it wouldn’t go strait to my waste line. 🙂

The atmosphere was great. Very casual with lots of seating, tons of condiments and great desert choices. The desert is no extra charge just enjoy, if you can after all of that bbq! Make sure to head over if you haven’t yet and if you are visiting it is a must go for lunch or dinner. You can even get family meals to take home for the whole fam.
