My Beneficial Breakfast, Makeup Upgrade, and Songs that Soothe
BODY | FOOD
MAINTAINING A WELL-BALANCED DIET ISN'T ALWAYS EASY, BUT IT HELPS ME FEEL MY BEST AND MOST STRONG. I FIND IF I START THE DAY RIGHT WITH A HEALTHY BREAKFAST, I MAKE BETTER CHOICES THROUGHOUT THE DAY. OATMEAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN EASY, QUICK, AND NUTRITIOUS CHOICE. IT'S FILLING AND HAS GREAT VITAMINS AND MINERALS. I ADD BLUEBERRIES ON TOP FOR ANTIOXIDANTS, AND WALNUTS FOR OMEGAS.
BEAUTY | MAKEUP
ALONG WITH ELIMINATING TOXIC SKIN CARE, I TRY TO USE ONLY NATURAL AND NON-TOXIC MAKEUP BRANDS ON MY SKIN AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. I LOVE USING NATURAL MAKEUP BECAUSE IT HAS FEWER POTENTIALLY HARMFUL SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS. FINDING GREAT NON-TOXIC BRANDS IS EASIER THAN EVER LATELY. ALSO, IT MAKES ME FEEL SO SAFE KNOWING THAT IF MY SON KISSES OR TOUCHES MY FACE, HE WON'T BE EXPOSED TO ANYTHING HARMFUL.
BABY | MUSIC
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WITH MY SON IS TO LISTEN TO MUSIC TOGETHER AND SING. NO SURPRISE THERE, AS I'M A SINGER, BUT WHEN I EXPERIENCED COMPLICATIONS DURING MY PREGNANCY IT CAUSED ME A LOT OF STRESS AND ANXIETY. I STARTED SINGING TO MY SON IN HOPES OF CALMING AND SOOTHING HIM, LETTING HIM KNOW THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE OK. I NOW SING THOSE SAME SONGS TO HIM. IT'S BEEN SUCH A JOY TO USE MY VOICE IN THIS WAY NOW. WE LOVE SINGING SONGS BY ADELE AND THE BEATLES, AND HIS CURRENT FAVORITE SONG IS BY ELTON JOHN.
