Happy Thusday everyone, time for another Things I Love Thursday! I can hardly believe it is already August. Where has the time gone?! I feel like I barely have even touched summer and fall is already on the way. I keep remembering how my dad once told me that as you get older, every time you turn around another year has gone by. I think this is true, which makes me realize how important it is to make the most out of life.
Butterfly in a Jar: I thought this was a clever little toy. It brings my mother to mind because I know how much she loves butterflies. This could be someone’s “pet” butterfly without harming a real one or it can be used to just admire the beauty of the butterfly during the colder months when they are not outside.
Juice Box Camera: This little toy camera is all sorts of adorable! I found this at Photojojo and they have a lot of great things for those who love/enjoy photography. This camera takes 35mm film and does not require batteries. The straw is the shutter which I thought was a great idea to make use of that extra detail, to really give the camera the official “juice box” look.
Photorito Lens Wrap: In my family, my older brother is a burrito fanatic! He eats them often enough that I tell him he will one day turn into one, (I had drawn a picture for him too to reflect this that can be seen here). I think this tortilla looking lens wrap would be perfect for my brother or for anyone else that likes burritos.
NutriBiotic Organic Vanilla Rice Protein: Everyday I use this ORGANIC rice protein powder for breakfast. I make a shake that uses one heaping tablespoon of this protein powder, almond milk, half a banana and a little almond butter. The powder is a tad bit chalky, but I do not mind especially when blended with the ingredients I use.
I buy this at iHerb.com (you can use code NEK425 to save $5 off your first order or on any other products). I think what I love most about this protein powder is the organic factor (made without pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, or PCBs) that it has only four ingredients (enzymatically processed rice protein from certified organic, whole grain, sprouted brown rice; certified organic vanilla flavor). It also does not contain soy, milk, eggs, wheat, corn, nuts or preservatives and is a vegan product.
