This upcoming weekend is Victoria Day long weekend. For us Canucks it’s often the first big camping weekend but this year I’m doing something a bit different. This year I’m spending my Victoria Day in Vegas for a vachelorette party… I know… I’m nervous. It’s been awhile since this old gal has stepped foot on the strip but I know that it’s going to be a ton of fun! We have an amazing group of girls going and have lots of fun things planned for the bride to be!
As the summer approaches with calendars stacked with camping trips, weddings, beach days and whatever else you’ve got planned, I thought I’d share my survival kit to help you stay hydrated, energized and fresh no matter what summer brings your way!
1. Natural Deodorant
I have been wanting to try a natural deoderant for a long time. I had the pleasure of meeting the sisters and founders of Routine a little while back and fell in love with their products (and them!). I’ve been known to get a little sweaty and I always thought that the natural stuff wouldn’t cut it for me but this stuff is the real deal! I love the smell, which is one of the things that has put me off of other brands in the past, and most importantly, it actually keeps me dry and smelling good all day! I love that they are a Canadian company and that they make environmental and human health their top priority. This has quickly become a must in my daily routine and I’ve stocked up on a couple of the trial sizes to throw in my beach bag for those hot Vegas pool days!
2. Energy Boosters
Gone are the days of chugging energy drinks to pull through all night study sessions. I thought that for me, energy drinks were a thing of the past, but with a jam packed weekend full of festivities a little extra boost definitely won’t hurt. I’m not talking about the fluorescent liquids that you might be picturing. These days my energy drink of choice is one that provides a natural boost from caffeine and antioxidants. I love these Runa Clean Energy Drinks. Just good ol’ clean caffeine from Guayusa leaves, a tea leaf from the Amazon. I also always keep a couple stick packs of Matcha Ninja in my purse. Because it’s a cold brew matcha you don’t need hot water, just pour into your water bottle, shake and you’re good to go!
3. Hydration Helpers
When you’re out in the sun all day or travelling here and there, it’s easy to forget to hydrate. Unfortunately this can also mean headaches, low energy and feeling pretty rough if you’re out in the sun all day. A reusable water bottle is a must. I try to take a few sips every time I reach into my purse to grab something and this helps to keep me hydrated throughout the day! …
