Morning Favorites: Sponsored by Naked Juice

Lately, I have been cherishing my mornings. Slowing it down and taking time to wake up and start the day. Maybe it’s because the weather has been amazing but the morning sun has made starting the day just a tad bit better.

Today,  I have another post sponsored by Naked Juice! The most recent juice I’ve been testing this month has become a morning favorite. I thought I’d share some other things I love to get the day started right.

I love to start my day with coffee or tea. I’m not very particular with my coffee, but I am particular with my mugs. You need a great mug. It makes me smile first thing, and its a great morning conversation starter. Here is my recent favorite.













If I’m not having coffee at home, I like to try different drive-up coffee stands. There are so many cute mom and pop coffee stands scattered around town. Recently, I’ve been loving Black Rock Coffee.


















If I’m not drinking coffee,  I will drink a juice or water. I’ve been testing a new Naked Juice this month called Berry Almond NutMilk. It’s fantastic. We were given about 6 bottles and everyone in our house loved it. Naked Juice always has amazing blends of fruits and vegetables to put in its bottles thanks to the brand’s deep tradition of goodness. Each bottle of Berry Almond Nutmilk contains: 26 blueberries, 8 blackberries, 2 raspberries, 1 strawberry, 24 almonds, 1 3/4 apples and 1/3 banana. This delicious, non-dairy smoothie blends together the goodness of fruit and nutmilk to deliver 11g of plant protein. Berry Almond Nutmilk is gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, and contains no added sugar. Give it a try!



















The other thing I like to do first thing in the morning is wash my face. It wakes me up and starts my day with fresh clean skin. Cetaphil is the only face cleanser I will use. I’ve been using it for 10+ years. It’s the best.


















This eye cream is also a savior if I had a late night or didn’t sleep well. It erases dark circle and puffiness. It’s by Origins called Starting Over.













Because its summer and I live in the Pacific NW,  I’ve been eating a lot of fresh fruit for breakfast! D’s parents live on a cherry orchard- so we have more fresh cherries than we know what do to with. I love it!













My favorite morning activity is watering the flowers! Some of you may not know, but I love gardening. We have quite the variety going on at my house right now. Our deck is covered in hanging plants and potted plants. It’s very therapeutic for me to sit on the deck and enjoy them.














Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful summer weather. Thanks again to Naked for sponsoring this post and sending me juice to try! The Berry Almond Nutmilk will hit stores in July.  Let me know if you try it.

Happy Sunshine-

    Ah, I am so jealous of all the cherries you must be eating!!! I absolutely love cherry season. I recently saw a recipe for cherry salsa to top on chicken or fish, sounded like a fun savory option for cherries! I also invite you to water my plants anytime. I love having flowers, plants and herbs on my patio but boy do I hate watering them…

    I've also only used Cetaphil face wash for several years and love it. Your hanging flower baskets look so beautiful! I've never tried that particular Naked juice blend but it sounds like a great one to try for breakfast!
