Bangle || Shoes || Body Wash || Earrings || Chocolate

1. LOVE Charm Bangle, by Alex & Ani {$28, shop HERE}

I’ve been sporting my Alex & Ani Charm Bangles for quite some time now! They are so much fun to give as gifts for ANY occasion, too. You can stack them {mix the gold & silver together for an extra cute look} or wear one at a time and they go with absolutely anything. Thinking this LOVE bangle is pretty amazing, right?! The little cards that come with each bangle have such strong meanings on them that can really send a message to whoever you are buying one for. The back of the LOVE bangle card says “AFFECTION | JOY | LIGHT  – Love is the greatest virtue of all. It is at the root of all good things. All humans thrive in a loving environment, and whenever love is in the equation, happiness results.” {I couldn’t agree more!} Such a perfect, simple gift to say “I love you.”

Available in gold and silver.

2. FS Lite Run 3 Shoes, by Nike {$75, shop HERE, other colors available} <– Now only $59.99!

I just bought these in the “Wolf Grey/Ghost Green/Green Glow” color which I linked above! They are super lightweight and the colors are perfect for Spring! {Lucky us – we are getting a few glimpses of spring weather around here in OH already!} A lot of my workout clothes are in the black/white/grey color categories {bright & cheery, huh?}, so having a little pop of color brings some life to my workout gear! The first couple of times I wore them, they were really different than what I was used to. Now that they are broken in, I’m obsessed.

Look good, feel good, workout harder!

3. Foaming Body Wash, by Method {$4.99, shop HERE}

So many people use Method products. Are you like me and find them pretty awesome? If you haven’t tried their Foaming Body Wash yet, add it to your Target shopping list to buy! My sister got me hooked. She bought the Cucumber Mint one and I ended up going with the Sea Mist. So cheap {under $5} and they smell AMAZING! With this cold weather we’ve had, my skin has been so dry. The Foaming Body Wash has Aloe + Vitamin E so it not only smells great, but leaves your skin feeling super clean & soft! On a side note, their cleaning products are awesome to use to wipe down your kiddo’s toys, rooms and high chair {along with the rest of your house!} because they are non-toxic and all ingredients are naturally derived. My personal favorite is the Pink Grapefruit All-Purpose cleaner. Add it to the list!

4. Angel Stud Earrings, by BaubleBar {$34, shop HERE}

What girl can resist a great piece of statement jewelry? And a quality piece under $50 at that! These Angel Studs are the perfect earring for a fun date night out! And how about for those Spring showers or weddings coming up? There are TONS of other fun statement earrings on BaubleBar’s site. Think of what outfit you are needing a statement piece for, take a peek at the link above, and trust me – you will find your perfect pair!

Next step, forward the link to your Valentine. Easy shopping for them, total win for you! {You’re welcome.}

5. Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Squares, by Ghirardelli {under $5, HERE}

As focused as we all should be on creating a healthy lifestyle, we can’t go a whole month without a little treat here & there! These are probably my favorite candy not just this time of year {although the packaging is super cute to pair with V-day gifts} but really, any time of year. The individually wrapped squares are the way to go because if you’re anything like me, I would eat the ENTIRE bar if it were put in front of me.

Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday and happy {online} shopping during those halftime commercials!

Oh, and one more thing! Last but not certainly not least, we have something special coming later this week in honor of ONE MONTH since the official blog launch, to spread a little LOVE, and to THANK YOU for all the support.
