Summer Essentials for any Outdoor Adventure

Summer Essentials

Summer is by far my favorite season, the days are longer, the sun is shining, everyone is eager to get outside to get a breath of fresh air and soak up some vitamin D – which overall just makes everyone a happier and healthier person. What’s not to love?

I was so excited to see that BabbleBoxx had a new Outdoor Adventures Boxx that would help with filling my summer with more adventures. I’m always down to try new things! Here’s what’s in the box and why I ended up loving everything. 

The Workout Bucket List Book

Workout Bucket List Book

This Workout Bucket List has everything for when you’re feeling like a couch potato but know you want/should spend some time outside to those who are in straight up training mode (think marathon and ironman training) and while I am not into working out at the gym, I do love working out and staying healthy which is why I found this book to be so beneficial. This book guarantees that working out can and will once again be enjoyable, you just have to find out what you love – and it helps you do just that. 

After I started reading it, it gave me so many ideas on fun adventures to do, like going on a road trip through Scotland. Hey, a girl can dream right?

CORE Foods

CORE Food Bars

When getting ready for any outdoor adventure, I always think of snacks. One of my new favorites are CORE Foods bar because their motto is focusing on gut health. They are plant based and organic, not to mention delicious. They are full of whole grains, prebiotic fiber, and probiotics and come in six tasty and delicious flavors like Peanut Butter Chocolate (which is my and baby’s favorite), Blueberry Banana Almond, Dark Chocolate Cherry. They’re perfect to grab when going out to hike, for a walk after work, or an all day adventure!

Lily of the Desert

Using Aloe, Lily of the Desert

99% Aloe Vera Gelly: Is it just me or even if you put on sunscreen do you sometimes still get a little rosey? I’m always hesitant to putting on aloe for after-sun care because of the toxins/chemicals that they could be worse for me that the actual burn. That was until I found Lily of the Desert in this Babbleboxx, they are the #1 selling Aloe vera products manufactured in natural retailers. It hydrates through a minimum of 3 epidermal layers, you can even use it as a daily moisturizer or lotion as part of your skin care routine! 

Hydration Mixers for Water

EcoDrink Naturals: Being pregnant I have become obsessed with strawberry lemonades but have  never found any flavoring that I like, until these EcoDrinks. They’re great because not only do they taste good + keep you hydrated, but they also replace your daily multivitamin with 100% DV of Vitamin A, C, D, E, B7 and B12, sign me up! They even help support your energy, metabolism, brain, eye, skin and bone health. 


Eating on SOLO paper plates with a SOLO paper cup

No no, I am not saying those iconic red cups! Though I do think I have been using those since forever. But when you are taking food and drinks on the go, it is so nice not to have to worry about washing dishes and being able to toss them away. Not only are they convenient, but they are durable! You can load up these SOLO paper plates and these SOLO cups don’t disintegrate like your typical throw away cups. I am someone who is mindful of sustainability, I LOVE how these cups are made of 20% post-consumer recycled materials. As some would call, it’s a win-win. 


Indoor/Outdoor Slippers

After a day spent on the go, it’s indescribable how much I love putting on comfy shoes. These Staheekum Women’s Summit & Go Slippers I can see myself wearing all the time! I love that they’re indoor/outdoor so I can wear them around the house for comfort and warmth, but also to go get the mail or run to the grocery store. The soles have a memory foam insole and they have a recycled water bottle lining. I also love this company because for every item sold, they plant a tree.
