Yes you read right, makeup and healthy foods are available at 7-Eleven!
Seriously, in the past few months I have been there more times than I have in my entire lifetime — and not just because there are 3 of them between my son’s school and my daughter’s daycare. I noticed stores are now much more inviting, their coffee is actually fresh, their on-the-go food options are much better than in years past and they have a display of e.l.f. cosmetics. How amazing is that?!
Stores are much cleaner, sleeker and they have a large selection of actual H-E-A-L-T-H-Y snacks and meals — salads, fruit, cheese, yogurt, pre-made sandwiches and at a nice price.
My husband asked one night “What are you buying at 7-Eleven? You go there a few times a week.” I laughed because I didn’t realize it was a daily routine now.
The truth is, it’s super convenient and it’s the only place I can get hard boiled eggs and cheese when I need a protein boost. No really, the fact they sell eggs is amazing — they come in a packet of two along with salt and pepper.
This week I finished work early and picked up my kids from camp and daycare to go to the water park and have an afternoon picnic. But first, we hit the 7-Eleven for fresh fruit, yogurt, low-fat sweet potato chips, drinks, cheese and of course, mami’s favorite, huevos duros (boiled eggs.)
How can you not love a place that offers healthy food and makeup?! I’m a beauty junkie and a busy mama so having a beauty brand I love and use daily being sold in a convenient and on-the-go shop is just awesome.
Makeup + Healthy Snacks = A very happy mama!
