Here are a few products that I enjoy and have made a difference for me. Keep checking back as I will be adding more over the next few weeks.
Ok, here is my confession: I don’t wash my face before bed at night. Gasp! I rarely wear makeup, and when I do, it’s only mascara. In looking at the beauty care that I do use, I wanted to make sure that they were as natural as possible. My research led me to BeautyCounter products. I started with the shampoo and conditioner. Within days, I also switched out my soap, face scrub, and sunscreen. After that, I took it a step further and started using night and morning face lotion! It felt great! It was light, and I actually looked forwards to putting it on. I even started to look forwards to washing my face before bed, although that has yet to become a nightly routine, however, it’s getting closer and closer. I loved the product so much that I became a consultant! I am still learning as I go about the routine that works best, but so far I love it all.
I love this mattress pad! I hesitated to purchase it because I sleep well overall and didn’t feel like I needed it, but this took me to a new level of sleep. You can set your Ooler pad to keep you warm or cool, throughout the night. I have mine set to be warm when I get into bed, then cool down after I am asleep, which research has shown to be the best for sleeping. I then have it set to warm up 30 min before my alarm goes off. I wake up before my alarm, every day! The gentle warming wakes me up and I am ready to take on the day. You can get 15% off the Ooler pad system by clicking here:
Books That Made me Think and Change
I listen to a lot of podcasts and read a lot of books. I heard a podcaster once say, spend money on books, as they will change you. I wish I could remember the podcaster. I took this to heart, and I have made an effort to purchase books that will enhance the life of those around me and myself. I still look at the library apps first, but if I can’t find the book I want at the library, I purchase it. Below is a list of some of the books I have recently read, and have lead to a change for the better in my daily life. Click on the title to find it quickly on Amazon.
