Favs: December 2018

READING

I am actually not currently reading a book at the moment, but rather listening to The Psychology of Winning for the second time, yes, it’s that good. If you are wondering what all I have read this year, check out this post. You know how I feel about positive input, every single day. Do it, you can change who you are and what you are by what you consume. 

The Psychology of winning

 

LISTENING

Craig Groeschel records his leadership podcast offering personal, practical lessons that take the mystery out of leadership. In these two linked below, he discusses time—your most valuable, non-replenishing resource. Plus, four principles of great time management.

FOLLOWING

Allie Reeves. She is a total boss babe, and seriously has a heart of gold. I love instagram for bringing me people like Allie in 2018! 

Allie helps other female entrepreneurs dominate social media, grow their businesses through one on one and group coaching! I am so excited to be working with her again in 2019! If you are looking to up your game, check her page out here. 

 

 

STYLE

Currently loving this J.Crew coat that seriously has it all. Zipper+snaps, hood, thumb holes, fleece lined pockets. It is great for super cold walks with Mr. Scout.

 

SKINCARE

Something I can’t live without, this peppermint lip conditioner. There is one on my nightstand, desk, and in my purse. It’s super hydrating. Seriously, everyone needs it! If you aren’t into peppermint, there is a calendula one too. Makes for the perfect gift year around. 

 

 

KITCHEN

Brandless kitchen utensils. On a quest to rid every last piece of plastic from our home last year, I replaced some of our kitchen tools with these silicone spatulas+spoons+turners. I also have wooden spoons+metal whisk+turner+measuring cups+spoons as well. ⠀⠀

Silicone+wood+stainless steel is a MUCH safer choice vs. plastic. And yes, I care enough about your toxic chemical exposure to tell you this. ⠀⠀

What’s the deal with plastic again? Not only is it terrible for our planet, but when going through extreme temperature changes plastic can leak endocrine disrupting chemicals like BPA and and phthalates. The truth is, even with everything being BPA-free who even knows what all the other chemicals in plastic are?! ⠀⠀

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.

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!
