Friday Favorites 10.18.19

Another great week in the books, my friends.  Another week filled with moments of joy, a few challenges and lots of in-between.

This week I had strained a muscle in my back. And while I’ve had issues with my back my whole life, this was one of the first times that I didn’t let the “pain” get to me.  Instead, I took it easier, embraced the forced “slower” days and gave my body a little TLC (which if you know me, you know I don’t do “slow”).  It was a great reminder to listen to your body and just embrace wherever you’re at. I also had the chance to try out Equilibria’s CBD cream with this new injury and I have to tell you, I loved it and think that’s why I healed so quickly.

This week I also had the privilege of being able to work with my sister and best-friend with Beautycounter (which you can read more about here).  It was honestly just so fun.  I couldn’t stop smiling during our entire meeting.  What a gift is that!  I feel so lucky to be doing something I’m passionate about – surrounded by people I love.   Seriously cool pinch me moment.

But proably the best part of my week has been having my mom in town helping me this week. At 40, I think I appreciate my mother’s help now, more than ever.  It takes a village to do all of this – raise kids, have a career, and just simply make it through the day!  We can’t do any of it alone.  I’m working on getting better about asking for help – and feel blessed to have my mom as the center of my little village.

Ok, before I get too sappy here, let’s jump into this week’s Friday Favorites.  Lots of goodies here….

My journey into cleaner skincare with Beautycounter

For the past few years, I’ve tried to be more mindful of my beauty and skincare routine.  For the most part, I’ve always been conscious of what I put IN my body, but I wasn’t always as conscious or mindful of what I put ON my body. All that changed a few years ago as

Practicing self-love

I had a different post planned for today, but something was weighing heavily on my mind yesterday and I felt it was important to say this. I was out on an early morning walk yesterday listening to a podcast.  It was a conversation between Rachel Hollis (the author and speaker) and Jamie Kerna Lima (the
