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?! ⠀⠀

Toasted Coconut Granola

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you had a nice, refreshing weekend! We always do some batch cooking on Sunday as well as prepare TEB’s lunches for the week! So, yesterday, I made this yummy toasted coconut granola to have on hand for various things this week!

A lot of granolas at the grocery store tend to have lots of added junk in them, and are often $12-15. There are a couple of brands I trust, but 9 times out of 10, I’d rather make my own if I can!
