Our Healthy Lifestyle Transformation Family Progress

Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Food, Fun With Kids, Mom Life

We are just about two months into this healthy lifestyle transformation. Boy is it a process, but anything good takes a little work right?! You can read about the full story of why we started this journey here, but in a nutshell, it was just flat out needed. I felt blah, I turned to fast food more often than I care to admit and was just overwhelmed with not taking better of myself. This of course overflowed onto my family and something had to be done. I didn’t want to start a fad diet just to revert or go half in, so I went ALL in. We are talking food, beauty, clothing and home products. I know you’re probably thinking that’s overkill, but initially I started with food and thought, “what’s the point of eating better if other things I use are yuck?!” So, here’s a little update of where we are at and a few favorites I’ve found so far along the way.

Organic Bath and Body Goods By Grown Alchemist

Beauty, Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Mom Life

Where to begin when there is so much I want to say. As we’ve embarked on this journey to remove a lot of items off our bathroom shelves that have one too many syllables that are hard to pronounce, I am loving what I’m learning. I’ve always been aware of the benefits of eating organic foods, but never gave much thought to bath and body products. It should make sense though that what you put in your body is equally important as what you put on it. There are no question marks with Grown Alchemist organic botanical beauty products and I’ll share why.

Cozy Cuddles And Coffee In Winter Wear

Fashion, Fave Finds, Mom Life

 

 

You know those coffee mugs that say something along the lines of “don’t talk to me until this cup is empty?” Ok, maybe I’m not that bad, but it certainly takes me at least having that first sip to get myself going for the day. This is even more so on those cold mornings when there is a chill throughout the house. I know they are few and far between here, but you bet I take advantage of them and dress the part when I can. It just so happens that ClimateRight by Cuddle Duds at Walmart brings on the cozy factor to make the morning even more enjoyable, cuddles included.

The Ho, Ho, Holidays are here and that means trying to find the perfect gift for all those you love. You sister adores makeup, but what color to get? Your husband has to have all the latest tech gear, but where to even start looking for the newest craze? Aunt Sally, is…well, aunt Sally and you just have no idea. The common denominator between them all, is everyone has something they love. Ok, maybe they don’t hug their wallet, camera, laptop or the sort like she’s squeezing her favorite-can’t-live-without teddy bear above, but everyone has something they love so much they don’t want to lose it. That is why we are deeming Tile the perfect gift for everyone on your list this Christmas.

​Now that I’m a mommy of small children, my go-to daily attire has changed a bit.

Gone are the days of super high pumps, and restrictive clothing. Well, for now anyway.

In this season of life, I have to keep things simple. That’s because I’m in the daily trenches of mommyhood. So I’m up, I’m down, I’m changing diapers, loading car seats, sweeping, mopping, washing seven thousand sinks of dishes, and folding just as many baskets of laundry.
