Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one (#7)

Please note: This post contains some affiliate links.    I’ve been really good about using things up lately before I buy anything new.  As a result, whoa…I have a serious empties collection to share with you today. Sit back, relax, and sip on a cup of tea.  This may take awhile.     Desert Essence Organics Sweet Almond Hand & Body Lotion I used this on my body, and it had a really nice scent.  That being said, it was a giant pain in the you-know-where to work into my skin, so I am not going to buy it again....

Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  However, I did receive some samples from Harmless Harvest to try.  As always, all opinions below reflect my own true thoughts.   Hi! I hope that you had a great August.  Where did the month go? Michael already starts preschool on Friday, so I am using this post as an escape mechanism.  I’ll most likely be the one crying at drop off!  You can count school as a definite un-favorite. Now about the things that I do like… Harmless Harvest Coconut Water I workout pretty intensely...

My favorite antioxidant rich smoothie

My favorite antioxidant rich smoothie

Smoothies have been my go-to breakfast for the past 6 years.  I do occasionally like to switch things up and go for something like protein pancakes or oatmeal, but I always miss my smoothies- especially during this insane heat wave. When I make a smoothie, taste is obviously important, but I always make sure that they are jam-packed with health and beauty foods above all else. The smoothie that I am sharing with you today has been my favorite for several weeks now because it makes me feel good, makes me look good (well, better), and actually...

Beauty Brand Spotlight on Odacite

Beauty Brand Spotlight on Odacite

There isn’t really a good way to segue from gymnastics to skincare, so I’m just going to jump right on in to it. I recently stumbled upon a lovely brand called Odacite Skincare.  It was founded by a woman named Valerie Grandury after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and sought to create a...

Happy August! It has been another busy month, but I recently cut down on a few writing commitments which should mean more time for blogging.  I definitely have a lot of posts in the works, so you can expect to hear more from me this month. Here are the favorites from last month- and for once, none of them are edible! Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Eye Shadow in Cappuccino Ever since I bid farewell to my Urban Decay Naked Palette, I have been in need of a neutral, non-shimmery eye shadow that would work for every day.  Cappuccino certain fits the...
