Favs: September 2018

Each month you can expect a list of things that I am currently loving. Hopefully by sharing these things will help you find something new to listen to or read, and maybe even a new recipe! Speaking of recipes, did you see my fav brussel sprout dish?! 

READING

Dale Carnegie: How to Win Friends and Influence People.

Highly recommend if you are into personal development. Even if you don’t need to “win friends and influence people” this book teaches+reiterates basic human relations, something we all need to remember. 

LISTENING

The Life Coach School Podcast

I go back and re-listen to some of the episodes. It’s that good. I try to listen to a couple of podcasts per week, you should try it too! Especially while doing mindless tasks. (more personal development)

Episode 213: Goal Shaming

Episode 231: Who are you becoming 

Episode 230: Lessons learned from Jim Collins

Episode 222: Discomfort on purpose 

FOLLOWING

Lindsay Dahl, VP of Social+Environmental Responsibility at Beautycounter. She works the forefront of environmental health campaigns, working to eliminate toxic chemicals in consumer products throughout policy and market shifts. She provides awesome insights on lots of areas of health+wellness. Basically, she is an all around bad ass. 

STYLE

ABLE denim I have shared my love of this brand countless times. Everything I have is made very well. They have beautiful leather bags (on my wish list), jewelry, denim, apparel, and shoes. But, besides the quality pieces, I love what they are about. They are focused on working with women who have often overcame extraordinary circumstances such as addiction to homelessness to prostitution. They manufacture directly in the communities they wish to impact both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependence.

SKINCARE

Still obsessing over the Resurfacing Peel. I literally wake up with glowy skin. It is made with fruit acids, and it’s like a facial in a bottle. In fact, my esthetician approves!  3-4x a week at night.

KITCHEN

Loving these spice jars from my friend Alex with Tabulated Organizing. She donates part of the profit from some of her sales of the pantry labels! I love a good #purposefulpurchase. I special ordered these, but she has some basic sets already made up ready to order, or you can do a custom order like me to get exactly what you need. She ships!

5 Ways To Step-up Your Wellbeing This Spring

Spring time always brings a sense of refresh and renew over here! Lots of new energy coming out of winter. The flowers are blooming, sun is shining and we are living our best lives with the longer days!

A lot of times we are conditioned to think we need to “spring clean” every area of our lives or make drastic changes when this time of the year rolls around. We actually are better served when we make small changes that can become a lifestyle of healthier habits. I am a big believer in making small, actionable shifts in our daily activities to create habits that will last a lifetime!

Self-Tan Routine, The Safer Way

Recently over on insta stories I was raving about my new favorite safer self-tanner, Beauty By Earth. Last spring+summer I used another safer brand called Chocolate Sun that I liked ok, but didn’t love. So, this year I was determined to find one that performed better than Chocolate Sun and was also safe!

After two applications, I can say Beauty By Earth is a WIN in my book. It gives you a nice, even natural glow with some color, but not turning you orange. It also doesn’t smell like most sunless tanners do.

The key to a successful sunless tan is all in the routine. It may seem like a lot, but seriously doesn’t take that much time and is so worth it! This is the exact routine I have been following for a VERY LONG time and it works.

2019 Dirty Dozen + Clean Fifteen, and why you should care.

If you aren’t familiar with the Environmental Working Group, click here to learn who they are and what they do! To sum it up, the EWG is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment.  That could be an entire blog post itself, but I will spare you!

So, lets get to it…the EWG has updated their dirty dozen and clean fifteen list. This list includes the top twelve conventional (not organic) fruits and veggies that have the highest amounts of pesticide residue. You will want to try (keyword, try) to always buy the items on that list organic. It has changed a tiny bit from last year, so click here to download a pdf to either print or screen shot to save on your phone when grocery shopping!
