@HelloAnnArbor x Farmer’s Market Haul

UGHHHH the thing I look forward to the most on Humpdaze is going to the Kerrytown Farmer’s Market – literally whatever city I may live in next must have a legitimate Farmer’s Market with the freshest flowers and local dank goods. If you would like to follow me on SnapChat @Lshawtay you’ll get a walking tour of me at the Market. On my walk there this week I noticed this lovely Robot engraved on the sidewalk – I wish there was more casual art like this around Street Botthe town. I’d like to call him

If you happened to follow my story yesterday you would have first spotted it there – that is of course if you haven’t stumbled upon it yet in person – it is also live on my Instagram @Lshawtayy

@Argus Farm Stop

I live week to week by the scent of these incredible Oriental Lily’s – they literally will last an entire week and then some ! $3 per stem I feel like it’s a steel deal ! The scent fills my apartment and brings a smile to my fayce everytime I walk in the door. Sometimes i’ll sleep on the couch just to get a better aroma – I guess it may be easier to bring the vase into my room but I literally did not think of that until just now.

Big fan of the Roos Roast Cold Brew Coffee , a locally brewed treat that’s a pricey $4 per cup but pretty worth it. Shopping Haul

Shopping Haul ! These are the BEST items  – outside of the flowers – that I got yesterday.  These Rosemary & Sea Salt Gluten Free by the Taste like OMG you’ve never had anything so amazing with out gluten ! Today I splurged for the large box for $10 – otherwise they come in smaller sizes for $3.50 – they’re also sold at Lab Coffee & the Argus Farm Stop.

The White Lotus Farm has quickly become my go-to booth at the Kerrytown Farmer’s Market.  If there could only be one butter left on earth it should be their Herb Butter with Taragon. You know this is the purest butter that can grace your lips!

Go on & get after it !

Bike Detroit

Bikes have spiked my interest this week & I am hoping into my life permanently. I have stumbled upon Detroit Bikes – “We cut, cope, bend, weld, paint, assemble and package each bike in our 50,000 square-foot factory in west Detroit” 100% Detroit Made. I am obsessed with the Matte Black sleek look of the bike Detroit Bikes produces! Matte Black is such a hot trend right now all across the board whether its seen on a sports car, your nails or even sneakers !

A note from their website www.DetroitBikes.comOur mission is to encourage cycling by making an accessible, enjoyable bicycle while continuing Detroit’s legacy of quality manufacturing and design. Detroit Bikes are built in a city with manufacturing prowess and deep traditions of bicycle production, touring, recreational riding, commuting, and racing. We are located on Detroit’s west side at 13639 Elmira Street. In our 50,000 square-foot factory we have the capacity to produce 100 bicycles a day, marking the return of high-volume US frame manufacturing.

Honestly I am thinking about going downtown on Monday to make a purchase ! It is a mere $699 that is a good investment in not only Detroit but your HEALTH. Biking is one of the best lifestyle choices you can make for yourself.

  • burns mad amount of calories – A 135-pound woman pedaling 12 to 14 miles an hour blasts 488 calories in 60 minutes.
  • good for your muscles Riding a bike is great for toning and building your muscles, especially in the lower half of the body – your calves, your thighs, and your rear end. It’s also a great low-impact mode of exercise for those with joint conditions or injuries to the legs or hips, which might keep them from being active.
  • improved mental health – going for a lovely evening or afternoon ride will allow you to clear your mind and be mindful of the nature & world happening around you.
  • good for your coordination–  Moving both feet around in circles while steering with both your hands and your body’s own weight is good practice for your coordination skills.

There are many different groups who are striving for efforts for the future of Mobility –  Zagster is taking the bike share scene by storm with their innovative mentality of bikes as a luxury amenity. The bike share system is “free” as long as you are a team member or student of an organization that has chosen to select Zagster’s Bike Share System. They are creating a better way to bike! Of course Quicken Loans has jumped on board with giving their team members the opportunity to bike the town !

BIKING extends your lifespan

BIKING makes the world a better place

Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space as one car. It takes around five percent of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike, and a bike produces zero pollution.
