Even though it has technically been Spring for a few weeks, we are just starting to get Spring-like weather up in the mitten! To celebrate, I’ve created some of my favorite finds for spring.
From left to right, top to bottom:
Larry’s Latest Sour Ale: It’s an unofficial holiday when Bell’s Oberon hits the shelves in Michigan. Although it’s still one of my favorites for summer (I mean, who can resist that citrus flavor and an orange slice?), I’m trying to branch out a bit. Last summer, I started drinking tons of sour ales. Grab Larry’s Latest before the season ends!
S.W. Basics Cream: This is my go to skincare item. I use it year round, and it’s the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. You only need a tiny bit, so it lasts forever. The best part? It’s only three ingredients, and it comes in a glass container!
American Eagle Outfitter’s Jeggings: I like to shop second hand, but if you are looking for something particular, or are a hard to find size, it can be so difficult (especially in a smaller city). AEO jeans are extremely durable, I have pairs that are over 5 years old. My favorite part: once a year, they have an event where you can donate your old jeans to be repurposed into insulation.
Aura Cacia Essential Oil: Spring cleaning equals fresh spring scents. Enter, lemon essential oil! I use this for everything: in my diffuser, beauty. cleaning products. And since it’s an essential oil, you only need a tiny bit.
We Call B.S.: If you are not familiar with Pincause, head to their website right now. Founded by two U of M students, these pins are perfect for inspiring community.
J.Crew Shirt: A classic. Need I say more? J.Crew is another brand that I love, because their items are so tough! My J has J. Crew items that are 10 years old; plus this top’s simple style makes is match everything.
Klean Kanteen: We always, always, always keep a reusable bottle with us. Say no to single use items with Klean Kanteen’s stainless steel bottle.
Six Seasons Cookbook: This book brings the farmer and chef together, by featuring recipes for every season. It’s a great step to eating seasonally, and will be your favorite book for a CSA or farmer’s market trip.
