1 Circle C Farm
No matter what type of diet you follow, choosing sustainable food sources is as impactful on the environment as it is on your health. Circle C Farm in Bonita Springs and nearby Felda offers non-GMO; soy-, corn-, antibiotic- and pesticide-free; organically raised; grass-fed beef and chicken—as well as eggs and honey—so you always know exactly what you’re getting. (And you support local farmers, as well!) Online ordering is available.
Ebates is for anyone who has ever bought anything online. (So, basically, everyone.) In a nutshell: You click through Ebates to the website you’re purchasing from, and they’ll give you a percentage of your order total as cash back, paid quarterly. It’s totally legit; I’ve earned almost $800 in cash back through the site. (Note to self: Quit with the online shopping.) I’m always amazed when I hear people don’t use it. Sign up (it’s free!) and they’ll add an extra $10 to your next payout.
3 DIY lemon lavender sugar scrub
As sunless tanning season rolls around, it’s more important than ever to keep your skin exfoliated. I love this easy, inexpensive DIY lemon lavender sugar scrub from The Glitter Guide. The scent is positively spa-like—and it makes a great gift, too!
4 The Ginestra cocktail at Bar Tulia
I’ve been on a gin kick lately, so I can’t wait to try the Ginestra cocktail at Bar Tulia. Crafted with G’Vine gin, Canton Ginger, elderflower, local cucumber and basil, it’s just about guaranteed to be my drink du l’été.
5 Dirty Dancing at Artis—Naples
Story time: When I was about four years old, I watched Dirty Dancing on repeat almost every day. (Not sure what my mom was thinking.) This month, the stage adaptation comes to Artis—Naples from April 5-10, and I can’t wait to bop around in my seat to all my fav songs. (Tickets are available online.)
See five things we tried in February and March 2016, too!
