HAPPY AUGUST! *Cue tears because summer is almost over* Well, at least in Montana it soon will be! I will forever be in shock with how fast time has been flying by lately. I like it, but it is also bittersweet! So another new month means another new blog post sharing all of my favorites from the month of July.
In July I branched out and tried even more products than I did in June. Most of these favorites are now part of my daily routine. I feel like I say the same thing in these posts but I genuinely mean everything I say! I don’t, or never will, share things I don’t love or don’t actually use. So, the things you see my post or write about are things I’m usually obsessing over!
Before I ramble some more let’s get this ball rolling! I am sharing with you guys all the yummy foods and beverages (of course), some skin care and beauty products, plus a lot of other lifestyle products I can’t live without!
July 2017 Favorites
Chai tea. I wish I liked coffee, but I don’t. I can only have it in small doses and it has to be made very specific. So, I usually stick to black tea. However, lately I have been loving chai tea! I mix in some almond milk and collagen and that’s it! Sooooo comforting.
Ningxia Red. This is a new obsession! A super-drink infused with natural essential oils that provides more health benefits in a 2oz shot than any other drink! Providing you with antioxidants, increased energy and focus, manages blood sugar, supports male and female fertility, and so much more! I mix a shot of this with about half a can of La Croix.
Eating Evolved. The ONLY chocolate I will eat until the day I die. This stuff you guys, omg. It’s amazing. Made only from organic cacao, organic coconut sugar, and organic cacao butter. If you haven’t tried the stuff yet, stop reading and go order some!
Coconut Bliss ice cream. I think this may also be something I eat until the day I die. It is THAT good. Obviously I have a sweet tooth if you haven’t figured it out by now and this sure does satisfies it! A lot of non-dairy, gluten free ice cream has a lot of crap in it so when I came across this I was sold. It may not be the best for me, but I like to follow the 80/20 rule. (The chocolate and strawberry are my current faves).
100% Pure Cosmetics. I will be writing a blog post on this brand very soon but for now I will give you a little sneak peek! If you have been following along on my toxic free lifestyle journey then you know about a month or so ago I switched to non toxic make-up. Hands down, one of the best things I could have ever done. This brand made it so much easier and way less stressful. I have been absolutely loving doing my make-up since purchasing from this company.
Melrose essential oil. This is such an underrated essential oil and it should be given more credit! I purchased this not knowing what to do with it but ended up loving it. I put it in coconut oil and apply it to my face!
Amethyst + rose quartz. ya’ll know my love for crystals but these two guys have been awfully close to me this last month. Each morning I meditate with them and also carry them around in my pocket or bra!
Podcasts. I honestly don’t know why this hasn’t been in one my favorites from before because I have been listening to podcasts for a while now. Lately I have been listening to Jordan Younger, The Balanced Blonde on IG, Soul On Fire podcast. I usually pop in my headphones during my morning walk and listen to an episode.
*DISCLAIMER* Essential oils do not treat, prevent, cure, or heal any illnesses and you shouldn’t use them in replace of a prescribed medication. Always talk with your physician before using essential oils.
