Current Favorites

These are a few of my favorite things…

I’ve been loving on a few things lately and – because I always like to know about fun things others enjoy, I want to share my current faves with you!

1. Walmart Grocery Online Ordering – YOU GUYS. This is a game changer! I’ll be honest, I am not a huge fan of Walmart (Target all the way…), but I have been impressed with this new service since James was born. I won’t lie, the thought of grocery shopping with a toddler and an infant is somewhat terrifying which drove me to try this service back in June. I’m happy to report that not only does it make grocery shopping a breeze, ordering AND picking up is incredibly simple, Walmart has an impressive assortment of organic/natural products, and I find that I save money by not randomly browsing aisles in the store. And yes, you can order items other than groceries… the only exclusion being electronics. So load that cart up with toiletries, WINE (haha), whatever you need!

Here’s the gist of it… you reserve an hour time slot for pick-up, place your order online (they even have an awesome phone app so you can order on your phone!), arrive at the pick-up location and – voila! – your groceries are loaded into your car. Seriously… that’s it! I definitely recommend checking it out! If it is your first time using the service, here is a link that you can use to save yourself $10.

2. Vilia Soaps – My internet friend (One of my favorite kind of friends… the ones you meet online!), Staci, recently contacted me about her new soap company, Vilia Soap Company. She and her husband recently moved back to the United States after living abroad in Greece (#goals) and decided to begin selling handmade soaps made with Greek olive oil. She sent me a few to try and I am pleased to report that these may be my new favorite soaps!

I was a bit hesitant at first because I am not a fan of grandma-esque soaps… you know the kind that smell like decorative soaps? Villa Soaps are NOT like that at all! They offer a perfectly light aroma and hold up well in the shower or by the sink. I also love the flavors of soap. My personal favorite is the Activated Charcoal and Tea Tree!

Because I love her soaps so much, she’s offered to give all of my readers a 15% discount on all purchases until the end of August – Yay! Enter the code olivesnwine during your online checkout and receive 15% off your purchase. This coupon cannot be combined with other coupons or sale items. This coupon can only be used once per customer. There is no minimum order amount on this coupon. Coupon Expires August 31, 2017.

3. Baby Bjorn – Dean LOVED our Baby Bjorn carrier when he was a baby and James has been the same so far. I actually purchased a K’Tan as well after receiving good reviews from friends, but that one is tricky to put on and James does not like it nearly as much. It is what I use to get him to nap if he won’t give in and I carry him in it while running errands. If you’re a new mama or expecting, this carrier is a must!

4. Commit to FIT – YOU GUYS!! I am super excited about this!! (Can you tell by all of my exclamation points?! LOL.) A few weeks ago, AdvoCare launch a brand new line of products called FIT… yep, you guessed it – They are for your fitness game! There are Pre, Intra and Post products as well as a convenient, ready-to-drink protein shake.

The products take the guessing game out of your fitness supplements (HALLELUJAH!) as you take the Pre 30 minutes before a workout, the Intra during a workout, and the Post within 45 minutes following a workout. Easy peasy! They are also made for ANY fitness level and ANY type of workout – How awesome is that?! Oh, and have I mentioned they taste like candy?! Haha… The Pre is a strawberry-lemonade flavor and oh my goodness is it ever good!

I’m happy to answer any question on the new FIT Line of products – They don’t disappoint! Also, if you’re brand new to AdvoCare and would like to try a sample of the new FIT line, please reach out – I have a few more I can send your way!

What are your current favorite products or services? I love getting recommendations so please share!

    Thanks for the shout out! So happy you love the soaps!

  2. I love the Vilia soaps I bought. The smells aren’t too strong and they work great even on for my sensitive skin.

  3. “Grandma-esque soaps” – LOL! But they sound so lovely! Homemade soaps are my fav! I have been loving making a lot of my own products including dry shampoo and makeup remover! Also, loooooooving essential oils all day ‘ery day!
