Summer Time Workout Gear

Summer has officially started in Tennessee.  While I love running and exercising outdoors the heat can definitely add an extra challenge.  I typically only workout in leggings or capris but during this summer heat I have to switch it up.  Check out some of my go-to shorts and tanks to keep you cool and moving this summer.

I am not totally on the bike shorts train yet.  I love them on others but haven't worn them myself.  I really love these Nike Pro Flex shorts because they are the best of both worlds.  They have the built-in underneath bike shorts with the baggy shorts on top.  They also have a great elastic waist band so they stay put and give you extra comfort.  I have loved teaching my outdoor yoga classes in these!

Amanda turned me on to the Montiel Activewear brand.  I have this Montiel Cowl Back Tank in 3 colors and would honestly wear them every single day. Their sports bras are some of my faves as well. They are so comfy and easy to get off- even when sweaty.

I am also loving these Amazon running shorts.  They come in lots of colors and are light+ comfy to run in.  Here I am caught again wearing my favee Montiel top which is not surprising!

Stay cool and active friends! Crystal & Amanda

Father's Day Amazon Prime Gift Ideas

If you are like me then with everything going on recently I've become super forgetful.  I just realized that Father's Day is this coming weekend.  So for all you fellow procrastinators (I hoping that I'm in good company!) I put some gift ideas for the awesome dad/hubby in your life.  Thanks goodness for Amazon and Prime shipping so these gifts will all arrive before Sunday!

1.  Rechargeable super bright LED camping lantern with extendable arm:  This sleek lantern with a stylish carrying handle is not only great for campers but would be fun for backyard gatherings.  

2.  RampShop Game Set:  Since we have 2 active boys I always like to find gifts that my hubby can do with them.  This is touted as a more exciting, faster paced version of corn hole.  This game is easier to transport as well and works for the beach, tailgating, or the outdoors.

3.  GrowlerWerks 64 oz carbonated growler:  For the beer lover this gift looks amazing!  It keeps beer fresh for weeks and you can easily pour the beer through the dispenser tap.

4.  Havaianas men's flip flop:  Most men don't take the time to purchase new flip flops and are still wearing their Rainbow ones from the 90's ha!  I love the simplicity of this brand's flip flops and the blue color would look great on any dude.

5.  Skagen touchscreen smartwatch:  I love the sleek design of this tech watch that tracks activities and your heart rate using google fit.  It comes in tons of colors and the silicone strap is chic + sporty.

6.  Waterproof portable speaker with clip:  This speaker is super lightweight and the clip helps keep it in place easily.  This also comes in several colors and provides 10 hours of playtime.

7.  Bevel shave kit:  This kit includes a safety razor, shave creams, oil, balm, and 20 blades.  This gives a high quality grooming experience for any dad!

8.  2 pack of beer freezer plastic pint glasses:  Simply pop these glasses in the freezer for 2 hours then they will keep your beverage between forty-three and fifty-three degrees.  I love the no sweat silicone band detail which keeps your hand from freezing.

9.  Thule crossover travel kit:  This travel kit is the perfect size for pens, toiletries, or charging cables. This brand is known for being super durable with a no-fuss look.  

10.  Temperature control smart mug:  If you are shopping for a coffee lover than look no further.  This mug keeps your hot drink at the exact temp you prefer.  It comes with a charging saucer or it can last on 1 hour of battery off the charger.

I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day honoring the special dads in your life!
