Kristie Presten

I enjoy supporting all things L O C A L! There is nothing better than walking into a family owned, or locally owned restaurant, coffee shop, veterinarian (that's been serving the community for decades), or clothing shop that houses only the best local artists in your beloved area. I'm married and have 3 wonderful daughters! Life is FABULOUS!

Swim Suits
Athleta is where I’ve bought my bathing suits for the past 5+ years. They last forever and you can mix and match tops with bottoms.

So many great health benefits with this stuff. I add it to my 34 ounce water cup along with some liquid stevia and minced ginger! Yum!
Brooks Running Launch 8
Running Shoes
The only running shoes I'll buy! For the past 2+ years I've only purchased Brooks running shoes. I have a narrow foot and run anywhere from 3-5 days/week. I will purchase a pair of Brooks every time!
Celsius Energy Drink
Energy Drink
I purchase the individual powder packets of a couple different flavors off of Amazon. I love adding them to my big 34 ounce water cup I keep on my desk. They are a great way to get your water in each day!
Dark Sky App
App
Better than the weather app. I believe it's more accurate.
Darn Tough Women's Hike/Trek Sock

These are the BEST socks for hiking. I hike ALOT and have tried many different brands, but I like Darn Tough the best. To give you some perspective I have hiked the Grand Canyon 4 times so far!
Duolingo
App
Jetboil Flash Cooking System
Backpacking Stove
We love our jetboil for camping! We usually purchase the freeze dried dinners and bring gallon water so all we have to do is heat the water in our jetboil and boom...dinner is served!
Kion Amino Acids
Supplement
I use these everyday to help my body recover from exercise and build muscle. I find as I age I need more help with recovery from exercise and these Aminos have all 8 essential aminos you can't get from food alone.
L'BRI Pure N' Natural

Reach out to my friend Lisa Bozeman for all your skin care needs. lisabozeman.lbri@gmail.com
La Sportiva Saber GTX Hiking Boots
Boots
La Sportiva Hiking Boots for Women are great! I've hiked the Grand Canyon 3 times in mine and they have held up very well. I have a narrow foot with a slight high arch so they hug my foot and provide the support that I need for both long and short hikes.
Life360 App
App
Love how this app keeps tabs on my kids at all times.

These are great to get water in during exercise without being loaded down with sugar.

Optavia Protein Powders
Protein & Smoothie Powders
Okay, I love these for so many reasons... 1) They come in individual sachets so they are already portioned for you and fit easily and conveniently in your purse or bag 2) They contain 25 vitamins and minerals 3) low carb, low sugar and use only natural, non-gmo ingredients 4) I am also an Optavia coach and not only use these powders and products, but coach my clients on how to use them as well for weight loss or for maintaining their health.
Organifi Gold
Protein & Smoothie Powders
It's really good stuff! I love to try new products and this one doesn't disappoint! It can be pricey, but it's worth it because of the premium ingredients and quality you get. Also, they run great promos and so keep your eye out for those as well! My favorite for the holidays is the Organifi Pumpkin Spice! Y U M!

Spatulas
I have 3 of these! You will never use a regular knife again to spread your favorite peanut butter, nut butter, cream cheese or hummus! I'm telling you it's a must have in your kitchen drawer!

Peanut Butter
I love peanut butter and this stuff has saved my life! I can enjoy peanut butter now without the oils and sugars.

This is fantastic for getting work done! The digital kanban style of keeping a Backlog and moving things over to "Do This Week", then "In Process" (for longer projects) and eventually "Done" keeps the process moving forward.
