This Friday, I am sharing my current favorite things.  There is no theme today, but just a bunch of random favorites. I hope you find some things on the list you didn’t know about, or maybe they are your favorites too.

Favorite accessory

Misfit Ray– The Misfit Ray tops the list of my favorite things at the moment.  You don’t have to charge the Ray because it runs on batteries.  Everything you need can be accessed from the Misfit app.

I love waking up to the silent vibrating alarm in the morning, too.  One of the best things about the Misfit Ray, is that you can wear it as a necklace on a beautiful chain.  It is affordable, durable, and water-resistant.

Favorite tech item

iPhone 7+– My new iPhone just came in on Wednesday and I am already impressed.  The rose gold is a little pinker than I usually like (I am more of a blue/green girl), but it is beautiful.  I can’t wait to play with the cameras this weekend at ACL.

Favorite fitness wear

EpidemiaEpidemia Designs is a new active wear company that is Dallas-based.  I love supporting local buisnesses, but that is not my favorite thing about them.  They raise money to support girls in STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).  Their collections feature designs from

The school counselor in me is excited about what’s to come for this company.  I love supporting companies that support education, so this is a win win for me.  The fitness lover inside of me loves the great look and fit of their products.  I have the “she’s got heart” collection to remind me of my resilience, courage, and compassion while I’m working out.

Favorite guilty pleasure

“Closer” by Chainsmokers– I get to see them live tomorrow.  I cannot wait!!  This song gets stuck in my head so easily. You can follow my ACL adventures on Instagram, so be sure to check out my Instagram Stories.

Favorite food find

Trader Joe’s pumpkin almond beverage & PB2– I know that PB2 is old and everyone has already been using it, but I just started and I love it.  Also, pumpkin has exploded at Trader Joe’s (my favorite time of year), and this almond beverage makes a great breakfast on the go or snack shake.
