Well, in September, I may have read one of my top 5 favorite books. The Magic of Thinking Big spoke my language. If you are in the market of growing, changing, evolving, leading a team, selling a product, this book is for you.

Around here, we always have a book on rotation. TEB and I typically read a lot of the same books, which is nice because, we are on the same page with growth and bringing value to others. Most recently, we both read The Law of Attraction. It’s the science of attracting more of what you want, and less of what you don’t! It really makes you think differently which attracts the things you want in life!

Sunscreen Safety

If you watch the news at all (guilty, I don’t) you may have seen there is a lot going on with sunscreen right now! So, let’s talk sunscreen safety!

First, there are different types of sunscreen…

Chemical Sunscreens are technically sun filters. The vast majority of sunscreens on the market contain chemical sunscreen ingredients like avobenzone, oxybenzone or octocrylene. They’re called sun filters because they absorb the sun’s UV energy and release it back into the air as heat. They are popular because they provide easy, transparent blendability into the skin. They have been linked to skin irritation and other health issues.

My Journey with Clean Products

Since 2009, I’ve struggled with ulcerative colitis before truly figuring out what triggered flares, and how to heal with food and lifestyle changes. I have always considered myself a healthy and informed person, but it wasn’t until I was faced with an autoimmune disease at 21 years old, that I knew absolutely nothing about that I realized something had to change. Enter my journey with clean products!  I had changed my diet. But, I knew environmental factors are triggers for autoimmunity–so cleaning up everything I could control was a constant goal of mine. I became obsessed with it. Because, you can’t unknow something.

Once I had learned the toxins I had innocently been exposing myself to on a DAILY basis were terrible for my overall health and wellness, things had to change all around, it became my mission. I was so confused, mad, and eager for change. How could companies be allowed to sell products that are harmful to us?!  

Favs: July 2019

Y’all know I love a good leadership or personal development book, and oh my goodness, I’ve found a gem. This month I read The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell. Whoa, did it deliver the goods. Seriously, I took notes on every chapter, and know I will be referring to it often. It’s a very easy and quick read with VERY practical + achievable advice. Check it out here.
