My Favorite Things

Christmas is in SIX DAYS!!!!! Wow!

Some of you are 100% prepared and already have things wrapped, some of you are freaking out because you have nothing, and most of the rest of us are somewhere in the middle.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite products with you in case you need some inspiration. I realize that a few of these cannot be shipped in time, but if one really sticks out to you you can always present a homemade gift card for that item. Let's begin!

1. Dr. Bronner's Lip Balm - my girlfriend introduced me to this very recently and you can find it at Whole Foods. It's an organic lip balm that feels AMAZING on your lips. Soft with a peppermint zip that's just right!

2.  Dirty Mouth Toothpaste. Yup - I brush my teeth with dirt and I love it! This product is clay, baking powder and peppermint oil. Give it a try and you might never go back to your regular toothpaste! You can find it at

3. Beauty Counter shampoo & conditioner. Many companies are now being conscientious about the chemicals they put (or more specifically DON'T put) in beauty products. YAY! Beauty counter follows very high standards and you can know that you are getting a quality product that still works. Recently I have been enjoying their shampoo & conditioner - it smells like grapefruit mmmm :) - or I can hook you up with a consultant to purchase through.

4. Slippers - because what woman doesn't love walking around the house in warm cozy fluffy things! I don't have a particular brand or site for you to go through because I've worn many and loved many. Just make sure they are they right size, good quality, and are squishy on the inside. Another perk is if they have outdoor soles so you don't have to feel bad wearing them outdoors too!

5. Primal Pit Paste. I truly cannot rave about this product enough. I'm slowly getting my whole family to use this and everyone who I have seen try it loves it. I searched and searched for aluminum free deodorant that was effective AND didn't make me stink (like a lot of the grocery store "healthy" brands did) and I finally found Primal Pit Paste! Mainly baking powder, coconut oil and essential oils for fragrance, this deodorant smells good, makes YOU smell good, and keeps you dry too. WITHOUT any of the aluminum or chemicals found in antiperspirants. My personal favorite is "Jacked up Jasmine."

6. Essential oils. Specifically, Thieves from Young Living. I have to tell you that I really think it's kept me from getting sick several times over the past few months! I've been diffusing it in my room at night. Plus it smells delicious. (Let me know if you need a consultant!)
You can also grab this diffuser from Amazon

7. And finally, skincare. The past few years I've been trying to get cleaner and cleaner with my beauty products and skincare made me nervous. I didn't want to go all hippie with my skincare and stop the anti-aging skincare I was using unless it worked! I found Primal Life Organics skincare and I do like it. My favorite cleansing and moisturizing package so far is also the most affordable - the bare face package. If you are looking for anti-aging you will want to also include one of their face serums as well. It can get a little pricey depending on what you choose, but you only use a few drops at a time so keep that in mind. With zero chemicals, no water in their products, and high quality oils you are definitely paying for real skin food!

That's it! Let me know if you have any questions!
