Get In Shape Girl

I've started getting into yoga a little bit, and I've noticed that you need a few accessories.

For example, my yoga mat does not like the Clorox wipes that I have been wiping it down with. Perhaps I need to take a more natural approach to fight yuckies. The Lavender Mint Yoga Mat Cleaner looks like just the thing I need! $10 MindOverLather

I am so new to yoga that I had no idea they had nifty little grippy socks-which I can tell you would be extremely helpful for me. The Half Toe Bella Grip Socks are from Toe Sox. $16 Available in an assortment of colors.
Last but not least, I need a headband and hair tie for any type of workout that I do! My hair is very fine, but I have a lot of it and it ends up in my face most of the time. I love these thicker headbands, like the ones from FitNorthWest. $10

At The Beach

Just got back from a great visit to Florida to see family. It got me thinking about things that would make a day at the beach even better-if that's possible. Much better than a day at the office.

The Sun Friend Monitor tells you when you've been in the sun too long. It lets you know when it's time to go inside, put more sunscreen on, etc. I think this is a great idea. Especially for kids. It's pretty amazing how sun doesn't show up until it's too late and you've gotten too much. $49.99 at Sun friend

I really should have gotten one of these drink spikes for the trip. How cute are these? And so helpful. Find this one at SimpleandSassyGifts on Etsy. $11

Spend a ton of money on those highlights at the salon? Yeah, me too. Seems like a good idea to try and protect them, so you can get your money's worth! The Pre-Soleil Mist from Fekkai has UV filters and adds shine and softness to give your hair a fighting chance. Available for 15.99 here.
