BODY | HIGH QUALITY SLEEP
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I CAN DO FOR MY BODY IS GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP. NO MATTER HOW BUSY THE DAY WAS, I REALLY TRY TO KEEP MY BEDTIME ROUTINE INTACT. I START BY MAKING A CUP OF MAGNESIUM TEA FROM MOON JUICE, MY FAVORITE BRAND. MAGNESIUM HELPS RELAX MUSCLES, AND IS THE PERFECT CALMING TREAT BEFORE BED. I LIKE MOON JUICE IN PARTICULAR FOR ITS REALLY NICE FLAVOR. THEN, I LOVE TO SPRAY DOWN MY PILLOWS WITH OSEA'S VAGUS NERVE PILLOW MIST. THE VAGUS NERVE ACTIVATES THE BODY'S RELAXATION RESPONSE, AND THE SCENT HELPS TO MAKE MY BEDROOM FEEL EXTRA ZEN AND PEACEFUL BEFORE BED. I ALSO LOVE USING A LITTLE ESSENTIAL OIL BEFORE BED. I DISCOVERED A NEW BRAND I LOVE, PILI ANI. THEIR SWEET DREAM NATURAL ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND IS SO CALMING IN THE EVENING. I THEN TRY TO DO A TEN MINUTE MEDITATION ON MY CALM APP. EITHER I LISTEN TO A SLEEP STORY, OR THE DEEP SLEEP MEDITATION, TO HELP ME RELAX AND PREPARE FOR BEDTIME. IT REALLY HELPS ME UNWIND AT THE END OF THE DAY, AND IT RESETS MY BODY AND MIND FOR A GREAT NIGHT'S REST. ALSO: A GREAT PAIR OF COZY PAJAMAS MAKES BEDTIME FEEL EVEN MORE ENJOYABLE. I LOVE THE BRAND EBERJEY FOR THEIR SUPER SOFT PAJAMAS!
BEAUTY | CLEAN SKIN + PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS
THROUGHOUT THE YEARS MY SKINCARE ROUTINE HAS CHANGED CONSTANTLY. WHETHER I WAS AT A STAGE IN MY LIFE DEALING WITH MY PCOS AND NEEDING TO USE MORE ACNE PRODUCTS, OR WHEN I WAS PREGNANT AND USING MAINLY NATURAL AND ORGANIC BRANDS. NOW, POSTPARTUM, I’M SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE, SO I WANT TO SHARE WHAT’S IN MY BEAUTY CABINET RIGHT NOW. I’M A BIG FAN OF OSEA AND WILDLING. THEY MAKE FANTASTIC PRODUCTS FOR FACE AND BODY, WITH NATURAL AND ORGANIC INGREDIENTS. I’VE ALSO BEEN USING NATURAL DEODORANT AND TOOTHPASTE FOR MANY YEARS NOW. MY TWO FAVORITE BRANDS ARE TOM'S OF MAINE FOR TOOTHPASTE AND NATIVE FOR DEODORANT. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HESITANT TO USE ORGANIC OR NATURAL FOR TOOTHPASTE AND DEODORANT, BUT THESE TWO ARE REALLY GREAT. I’M A HUGE FAN OF DR. BARBARA STURM. HER CONCEPT OF CREATING PRODUCTS FOR FACE AND BODY THAT ARE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY HAVE REALLY HELPED MY SKIN THROUGHOUT ALL THE DIFFERENT PHASES. I ALSO LOVE SUMMER FRIDAYS --- A FANTASTIC FEMALE-RUN BRAND. THEY MAKE GREAT EYE CREAM, AND I LOVED THEIR BABYMOON BELLY BALM WHEN I WAS PREGNANT.
BABY | EASY MEALS
I’VE SPOKEN BEFORE ABOUT MY LOVE FOR THE BRAND RAISED REAL. THEY ARE A FANTASTIC COMPANY THAT CREATES READY-TO-MAKE ORGANIC, HEALTHY, AND DELICIOUS MEALS FOR BABIES. THEY JUST JOINED FORCES WITH MY OTHER FAVORITE BABY BRAND, ONCE UPON A FARM, WHICH WAS CREATED BY THE INCREDIBLE JENNIFER GARNER. AS A MOM, I LIKE TO DO MY BEST TO GIVE MY BABY HEALTHY OPTIONS WHEN I CAN. I RESEARCHED AND FOUND THAT A LOT OF SMOOTHIE PACKS FOR BABIES WERE RECALLED BECAUSE THEY WERE FOUND TO CONTAIN A LOT OF HIDDEN METALS. ONCE UPON A FARM MAKES SAFE AND DELICIOUS PACKS FOR CHILDREN THAT ARE SO EASY TO HAVE EITHER AT HOME, OR ON THE GO. IT WAS EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE TO HAVE THIS RESOURCE WHEN I TRAVELED FOR THE FIRST TIME AWAY FROM THE BABY BY MYSELF LAST WEEK. KNOWING I HAD EASY MEALS FOR MY HUSBAND TO GIVE OUR SON WHILE I WAS GONE WAS SUCH A RELIEF. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I ENCOURAGE US MOMS TO ALWAYS DO THE BEST WE CAN. IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE PERFECT, BUT WHEN IN DOUBT, SIMPLE FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE SURE TO BE A HIT.
