Hey, Y’all! I wanted to come back on here this week, and show you everything I’m loving lately from around the interwebs! I’ve been really getting into all natural products. I’ve been trying to be more aware of what I put in and on my body. I think you’ll notice a theme with this loving lately post towards that haha. Also, I apologize in advance if this post is a little all over the place. I finally got sick this week, and my brain is so foggy!
1. Essential Oils
I know I’ve talked about these before, but I finally ordered my Young Living starter kit this week! I’m so excited to start trying out oils, and seeing how they work! I was super skeptical at first, but I’ve heard so many good things that I’m giving them a shot! One of my best friends swears by them, and she’s arguably the most skeptical person I know. I figured if she likes them anyone will. I also got so many amazing comments from y’all when I posted about them on my Instagram, but if you have more uses for EO’s I would love to hear about them! I know there are so many ways to use them. After I get mine and start using them, I’ll definitely put a post up with all of the recipes and uses y’all have given me and some of my own as well!
2. The Think Dirty App
Okay, I think I’ve gone a little crazy using this app. All you have to do is download the app, and you can scan the barcode of the products around your house. The product will pop up on the app and tell you if it’s full of chemicals, or if it’s a clean product. I’ve always been aware that there are chemicals in the products I use, but seeing it flat out in front of you is honestly so eye-opening. It even tells you which ingredients are bad, why, and examples of what natural products to use instead. Here’s an example of my bath soap that I did not expect to have such a poor rating!
At first, I got really overwhelmed. I couldn’t believe how many toxins there are in every product. So what I’ve decided is that I’m going to only scan a product if I’ve run out and need more. I’ve been using this app in Target now as I shop to make better decisions. I recently ran out of hand soap, and I found some really great products to use instead of the regular soap I usually buy. The only thing I don’t think I’ll be able to get rid of is my makeup. I think that’s going to be my one vice. It would be really hard for me to give up that one.
3. This Dress!
So I’ve had this dress for over a year now, but I had to chat about it because it’s still in stock in multiple colors, and I’m obsessed with it. It’s so flattering and comfortable! It’s been a staple in my closet for the past year. I always throw it on with a pair of Vans and either a scarf or a vest. It’s just such an easy outfit!
4. Self Tanner
Usually, this is the time of year I start self-tanning again because out here in SoCal it starts to warm up again already. I love having a little bit of a starter glow at the beginning of the season so that I don’t look like I’ve been hiding in a cave all winter. I’ve been using this lotion and this face lotion for years, but now that I’m trying to go natural, I found this one I think I’m going to try instead! I love that it has a tint to it, so you look tanner just by putting it on! I’ll let y’all know how I like it!
