Thought I would switch things up a bit for this category! I receive email updates from the Environmental Working Group. They keep me up to date on recent studies and products as they relate to our health and environment. The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live halthier lives in a healthier environment.

How is it already Friday?! I feel like it was just Monday! Nevertheless, cheers to the weekend! I hope you are enjoying the what we’re eating series! Most of the meals I make are super quick and require minimal ingredients.
My parents are coming into town Saturday and we will be having dinner with them at our home. TEB will grill our fav chicken ever–honey mustard chicken! (If you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you got the recipe in your inbox today, if not put your email in the pop up!)
Trust me, I know what you’re thinking. Been there, tried the DIY manicure. Well, I’m here to tell you my method lasts 6-7 days, ladies!
Fun fact: I almost always have my nails painted, and honestly don’t feel like myself when they aren’t painted! I never had my nails painted in high school because between all the sports, nasty goalie and softball gloves, it just wasn’t realistic. In college and up until this past year, I used to get regularly scheduled mani’s/pedi’s. They would without fail never ever last as long as it would if I did it at home. Plus, it was such a time trap even when I had an appointment.
Monday seems a lot less stressful when you have a productive Sunday, right?! My answer is YES! I find that having a productive Sunday sets my week up for success! It basically gets my game plan for the week going on a strong foot! So, here is my go-to list of 10 productive things to do on a Sunday!
Pick and choose what works for you and your lifestyle, but know that come Monday, you will be ready and prepared! In fact, maybe you won’t hate Monday’s anymore!
Ok, the much requested dinner menu is here! Each week I will (read: try to) publish what we’re eating for dinner in hopes it will help you decide on what to get at the grocery, or inspire you to make a healthier choice!
I’m certainly no chef, but knowing that I can prepare a healthy meal that will nourish our bodies is priceless. You can learn just about anything these days. If you don’t know how to cook, just try.
Back in October I read about half of High Performance Habits. It got a little heavy, and it was best I come back to it another time. That time is now! I picked up where I left off and timing for me is much better! It is a great book and I am learning new habits to help propel my business and life.
Think and Grow Rich, this is an old school personal development book. It was really good and brought a different way of thinking. I knock out a book per month, and this one didn’t disappoint.
Currently reading Anxious for Nothing and dang, it’s good and just what I needed right now! This one will be ongoing for a few months since it’s the book we are currently reading for my bible study group!
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!
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.
Can you guess what it is?!
Facial oil. Yes, oil. I know so many people get scared of putting oil on their face, but hear me out. Facial oils are a total game changer for your skin, trust me. Another common fear that most people have is how to use them. So, here we go…
Consider facial oil an instant pick me up for your face. So, what can you expect?! Glowier, hydrated, smoother, brighter, plumped skin from oil. It’s rich, deeply nourishing, utterly soothing—and something you totally need to consider trying. For real though, who doesn’t want all of that?!
