Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! Due to be on an extended spring break, it’s been awhile since I’ve linked up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for their Friday Favorite link-up, so I’m glad to be back!

Essential Oils and Diffuser

A LOVE running my diffuser throughout the day with Serenity essential oil, it smells so good!  I haven’t made a complete switch from burning candles, instead of using my diffuser but when I do light a candle I try to make sure it’s a candle made of soy or beeswax. Why you ask?  Did you know that many traditional candles are made with paraffin? This fact alone is not the issue. When you light the candle, it releases carcinogenic chemicals and some candle wicks are made of lead which gets released into your home through the soot. #nothanks  All that to say, I really enjoy using the oils as a safe alternative. The ones I have are DoTerra and I only have 3. I use the Serenity all of the time and swap that out for a blend of the Cassia and Wild Orange during the winter. I’d love to expand upon the oils I use in my diffuser, not so much for homeopathic methods at this point.  If you have any recommendations for other oils or blends that are your favorites, I would love to hear them!

Brandless

I shopped Brandless for the first time a little over a month ago and placed my second order earlier this week. Both times, I’ve really liked what I’ve gotten, the price is on point and delivery is super fast. I hadn’t realized it before but their foods have no artificial colors/flavors and are non-GMO.  I love how they give back to the community as well, every time you place an order they provide a meal to someone via their connection with Feeding America. I’ll definitely be trying to shop more with them in the future. Since I’m fairly new to the brand, if any of you have tried and have some favorite things you like to purchase from them, let me know!  If you’ve never ordered and are thinking of giving it a try, use this link and we both get $6 off of our order. #winwin

Tinkle Razors

Girl, shave your face! Haha!  Do you follow Living with Landyn? If you don’t you should and then you should go and watch her insta story on how to shave your face. #ilearnedfromthebest  Don’t worry, you won’t grow a beard and the hair on your face won’t grow back darker but your face WILL feel so much more smooth, your makeup will go on much more easily and your skincare products will be so much more easily absorbed. I’m telling you don’t knock it until you try it and you can thank me later! #yourewelcome

Stella and Dot

I’ve been a huge fan of Stella and Dot for over 10 years. I have been friends who are stylists for the company and most of the time they’re who I go to when I need a statement piece for a special occasion, an update to my everyday pieces or a new clutch spice things up a bit. My current favs are these earrings and this clutch, I brought them on our recent trip to Cabo (read about it here). *links posted so you can check them out but I’m not a stylist nor am I receiving any product * I just like their jewels * 🙂 If you don’t have a stylist, you can shop or connect with my friend Ann here.

My Beautycounter Stock-up

I love Beautycounter’s cleansing balm, it’s primary use is cleansing (even as an overnight cleanser) but this stuff can be use for so much more. Some of the things we use it for in our home are eczema, treating sun burns and chapped lips. This stuff is seriously amazing. The price tag is a little high but it lasts forever.

Thanks to those rays I was catching in Cabo, I needed to stock up on my foundation. Normally, I use the linen shade of the Tint Skin but I was able to kick it up a notch this time and went with the sand shade.

This next thing is probably Jared’s favorite of the week! I got him one of the items from Beautycounter’s new men’s line, Counterman. He’s totally loving the exfoliating cleanser.

Although I’ve been a consultant for Beautycounter for several years, I like to mix and match my fav products across brands…. these are just some of my favs!
