Top 5 Favorite Lifestyle Items
So Mondays are reserved for anything I want! Which means I couldn’t decide what to write about so we will see what types of things I can come up with. For this first Monday post of the new year, I figured I would write about my top 5 things that I can not live without! (I’m obviously being dramatic, but you get the idea)
Coconut Oil– Just like Frank’s I put that -ish on everything! I use coconut oil as a carrier oil for my essential oils. I use it to cook with, put on my tiny humans, and a multitude of other things. I am not loyal to any one brand but I do choose organic. I do this for the simple fact that there are so many things that I don’t do organic, thus making this simply an easy step to reduce some of the of toxins being put on or in my body.
My Portable Coffee Cup– I love, love my KeepCup. It doesn’t keep my coffee or tea hot for a very long time but I am usually done before I get to the icky cold coffee stage. It’s stinking cute, and makes the environment happy one use at a time!
My Planner– right now I have one that I found from TJ Maxx….digging the $5.99 price tag. I couldn’t find it on their website but I did find this killer one for $7.00 that is similar, um, and adorable! If I didn’t have a planner between classes, kids, and social endeavors I would literally be a useless lump of human. I cant remember to turn off the lights some days let alone do social events and homework. Sheesh.
My Kindle- let me tell you. I would be a sad human without my Kindle Fire. I read…a lot..like..a lot, a lot. My bank account could not keep up with my reading habit, so I have my kindle and then pay for Kindle Unlimited and I am a happy woman. I read books from all ends of the spectrum I am a non-discriminatory book reader. I pretty much like anything. I think my kindle is 2 year old now, which is fine by me…it still works like a charm.
Mascara- I hate to sound cliché but I seriously could forget just about anything else, except mascara. I need to wear mascara or else my eyes become lost in the abyss that is my face. I have only two that I have used interchangeably over the years and I prefer one over the other just due to ethics not necessarily over quality because I think they are both great. The two mascaras I purchase are the Cover Girl Lash Blast, and the Flower Intensif-eye Volumizing mascara. The Flower company founded by Drew Barrymore has some pretty cool ideas on how products should be made and I love that they are cruelty free. So you can check out their site linked under the picture. I think their product is also still carried at Wal-Mart, just an FYI.
Now don’t you feel like you know me just a little bit better? What are your top 5 favorite things? Comment below I look forward to hearing from you!! Happy Monday!
Love and Laughter,
