TBL Favorites: August 2018

Hi Beauties!

We are starting something new here at The Balanced Life. You may have noticed a new monthly newsletter in your inbox this morning with some TBL favorites, a nutrition tip, and a note from me! (If you’re interested in receiving our newsletter, you can join our list here.)

Each month, the team and I will compile some of our favorite things of the moment and share them with you to hopefully spark joy, inspiration, or just help you find a new pair of running shoes or a new recipe! 🙂

So without further ado, here are some things the team is currently loving:

Currently Listening to:

The Coffee + Crumbs Podcast had a mini-series on how to have important conversations with your kids that I found very practical and helpful.” – Becky

“I love working with calming music on and the “Your Favorite Coffeehouse” playlist on Spotify has been the perfect workday companion!” – Jordin

Currently Reading:

Cultivate by Lara Casey – love the message: “embracing imperfect, grace-filled progress to grow a life of joy.”

When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger – an easy, fun beach read to end the summer!


“I love the swing dresses from Old Navy – I like to pair them with my Carly Jean Los Angeles long-sleeve kimono + my favorite Parker Clay tote bag!” – Teddi

“You will find me in athleisure 99.9% of the time. I am currently loving my Adidas Cloudfoam Casual Shoes and Old Navy’s High Rise Mesh Panel Leggings!” – Sarah

In the Kitchen:

Trader Joe’s green goddess salad dressing over a salad or a bowl of grilled chicken, rice, and veggies!

We have recently been making the Goodful Loaded Pulled Pork Sweet Potatoes – it’s a crockpot recipe that is super easy and delicious!


Did you find anything new from our August favorites? Let us know in the comments! We would also love to hear what you are currently loving. It’s so much fun to share good things. 🙂

    Thank you so much for this newsletter! Thanks to these favorites, I am currently now listening to “Your Favorite Coffeehouse” on Spotify as I tackle some decluttering at home! I can’t wait to try the pulled pork-stuffed sweet potatoes very soon! The book selections sound perfect for me right now. Thanks again for these great tips and newsletter. Can’t wait for next month!

    Love this idea! Going to download cultivate as an ebook. This in turn led me to “Hello mornings” – will investigate further.
    The pulled pork recipe looks yummy.
    Sadly we don’t have Old Navy in the UK – on our trips to the States a visit was always a highlight!
