5 Things I'm Loving Right NOW...

 

I love sharing companies that are out there doing well by doing good and Eco Kids USA is a brand dedicated to making safer play products for kids!  They make everything from non-toxic paints to crayons, play dough and now Easter egg coloring kits.  

I just picked this kit up at our local Whole Foods yesterday, but you can also snag it on Amazon or even directly from Eco Kids' website.  The dyes are made with natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts.  And while I know we don't "eat" these eggs, last year Brooks (who has SUPER sensitive skin) got some dye on his hands and they turned red and blotchy!!  He definitely had a reaction to the chemicals!!  So this year I decided to find something safer!  Progress not perfection right?!

If you're looking for a new ritual to add to your beauty routine - try Jade Rolling!  I purchased a jade roller about 2 months ago after learning about its benefits and now I do this 2-3 times a week and its soooooo relaxing.

Jade rolling revs up circulation, de-puffs your eye area (bye cucumber slices) and improves your skin's elasticity + it promotes lymphatic drainage...meaning it's detoxifying too.  This practice can help to calm your skin and even out your complexion too!

First you'll want to make sure you store your jade roller in the freezer.  Next exfoliate your skin, then apply either a serum or facial oil (the links are the products I use) and start rolling!  You can start at the chest or forehead and work your way outward and upward and after just a few strokes on your face and neck, you'll see that your skin is brighter and your fine lines are literally rolled out.  Do this for about 2 minutes. 

When you apply a serum or face oil, this is where you'll see your face start to flush - which is good!  It means you're increasing the circulation to your face and helping with cell rebuilding, collagen boosting and lymphatic drainage!

Finally, wipe your face clean.  Then apply your serum, face oil or moisturizer again.  You'll want to re-apply because the product has been pushed deeply into your skin during the rolling process.

And your done! 

Most of you already know I'm slightly obsessed with drinking "Bulletproof Coffee" and have for YEARS!  Eating and living the bulletproof lifestyle (80/20 rule of course 😉 ) has changed everything about my body and mind.  

The launch of Bulletproof's newest cold brew has me ready for that warm weather - its my perfect afternoon pick-me-up and is sooooo good when poured over ice.  Bulletproof coffee gives you fuel from high quality fats, not sugar + a sustained energy and more focus.
