It’s that time of year where people start getting sick and with five kids I need to make sure everybody stays as healthy as possible. With our busy schedules, it can be difficult to get enough rest, but that downtime is imperative to staying healthy. Lexie is playing club soccer again this season and that means late nights at the field and lots of time outdoors in the cold and rain. So when her practice is canceled or she has some free time, she’s all about relaxing. Check out some of her faves for when she gets some much-needed downtime.

Cropped Waffle-Knit Tee and Washed-Terry Champ Sweatshirt from Alternative Apparel
This time of year calls for some comfy clothes and Alternative Apparel is one of our favorites for basics. The Cropped Waffle-Knit Tee and Washed-Terry Champ Sweatshirt are great for fall in North Carolina since they’re a transitional weight and perfect for layering. You can find Alternative Apparel at Bloomingdales and Bloomingdales.com
Original Ginger Chews and Ginger Honey Crystals from Prince of Peace
Lexie is a big hot tea drinker- in fact, she loves to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and watch a movie. We’re loving the Ginger Honey Crystals from Prince of Peace this fall and I stocked up to get us through the winter. Their proprietary instant tea blend combines raw ginger with the sweet taste of natural honey and makes a DELICIOUS cup of ginger tea, perfect for a cold day. Plus, the ginger in it is full of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.
The Original Ginger Chews are a great way to get some additional ginger- including all of the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits so I’m excited to have those on hand through the winter.
Ecosmart Sweats from Hanes
Y’know how there are days where you just want to curl up on the couch and relax? The Ecosmart Sweats from Hanes are the best for lounging around. They’re partially made from recycled plastic bottles (how cool is that?!) and renewable energy sources so they’re earth-friendly, too! I’m pretty sure that Lexie will be living in her go-to sweatshirt and sweatpants all winter long!
Cold Sore Treatment from Campho-Phenique®
I don’t know about your kids, but mine get the occasional cold sore- typically when they get a fever, but sometimes when they’re overtired or stressed. And with the grueling soccer season, overtired and stressed perfectly describes Lexie. With Campho-Phenique® Cold Sore Treatment, she can get fast relief from the pain as well as protection from secondary infections which is a win-win in my book!
