One of my favorite things is to share about my favorite things. According to the book The Tipping Point, there are certain types of archetypes people usually fall into: Maven, Connector and Salesperson.
I think I am combo of Connector and Salesperson. Sometimes I get hung up on the “sales” part of it, and sometimes that can feel yucky, but really it just means a person is good at sharing ideas and information and helping to connect and solve problems…and that sums me up perfectly.
Anyhoo, I love sharing information and helping people and I wanted to create a new blog post that listed all of my favorite things in one place. So here ya go!
This is my newest favorite thing! Now that I am in my mid-thirties taking care of my facial skin is a top priority. My pores were getting bigger, fine lines were becoming more frequent, under my eyes were becoming haggard looking and I just wanted to really get serious about getting into a regimen and start taking care of my skin. I had been introduced to Rodan & Fields years ago, but when I research the ingredients I was not interested, no matter how good the results were. And I instead would spend a ridiculous amount of money on natural beauty product lines like Natura Bisse, and if you click on that linked and are shocked by the price… yes, I have paid that amount for one jar of cream! If you got that kind of money to spend on a regular basis, try it, I do really love Natura Bisse, it’s just out of my price range now as a school teacher. So when all my products ran out, I decided to try EVER Skincare, a plant-based, natural skincare line in my price range. And the products are awesome! I am THRILLED with the results and the ingredient list and company is aligned with my values and love of natural living.
Nourish + Love Herbal Tinctures:
These are herbal tinctures I make myself. I traveled to Belize a few years ago to learn from the master herself, Dr. Rosita Arvigo. I buy herbs in bulk that she grows on her sustainably harvested rain forest farm in Belize. Then I tincture them in Gluten-Free vodka (Tito’s) and bottle them. My inventory is varied and the best way to keep up with what I have available to join to my private Facebook group for my clients, click here to join the Nourish + Love Facebook group. Anxiety, digestive issues, menstrual issues, immune system help, I have a tincture blend for it and they really work! Click here to learn more about Nourish & Love Herbal Tinctures.
I have been using Essential Oils for over 11 years. I love, love, love essentials oils. There are many great companies out there but I prefer these. I am huge fan of utilizing the power of plants and essential oils is an amazing way to do that. You can use oils for a myriad of things, but my favorite way to use oils is for relaxation. Check out this post to learn about my favorite oils.
Protandim from LifeVantage:
My dad introduced me to this supplement when my daughter was a baby and I have been taking it ever since. I went through a period of about a year of not taking it and I noticed a huge difference in my overall health when I was not on it. When we moved back to Tallahassee, I was really out of balance from the move, the whole experience took a huge emotional toll on my body and for the first time in over 10 years I went back to working with a professional nutritionist-the same one that used when I very first started my health journey 16 years ago! I brought with me two huge bins of supplements that I had taken on and off over the years and we went through together one by one (along with recent blood work) and decided what I should be taking. And do you know one of the few bottles that made the cut? Yup. Protandim. Click here to learn more and order Protandim for yourself.
I have been shopping with Stitch Fix since they launched and I don’t know what I would do without them! Pinterest was a game changer for my style, because I am such a visual person, being able to see normal outfits put together (not runway fashion pictures in a Vogue magazine), really helped me put together outfits. Stitch Fix took my style to another level. It was a way for me to safely try out new things, so I could really find out what my signature style is and it helped me pair down my closet so I could achieve a capsule wardrobe to make my life simpler (full disclosure, my “capsules” are pretty big still-I’m a work in progress, lol.) If you have not tried Stitch Fix /a> yet, you must, must give it a try. Plus, I consider it a form of self-care. Having a personal stylist that cares about you, feels really good.
