What I'm Lovin'

I mentioned before that sharing/receiving ideas is one of the main reasons that I started this blog. In this edition of What I'm Lovin' I wanted to highlight some things that I enjoy on a daily basis.

the skimm, Badger Headache Soother, They're Real Benefit Mascara, Purely Elizabeth Granola
1. Badger Headache Soother: I suffer from headaches on a regular basis, and so a friend recently picked up this balm for me. It doesn't always help with my headaches, but it does remind me to take a moment to relax and calm my mind. Even if you don't suffer from headaches, the soothing aroma can help you relax and take a moment to breathe on those extra busy days.

2. Purely Elizabeth: Because of my headaches, and to maintain a healthier lifestyle, I have been trying to find healthier options in my food. I become overwhelmed sometimes when I am choosing a granola option, because of all of the choices with amazing promises. However, a recent visit to Whole Foods made me stumble upon Purely Elizabeth. I can't lie to you, the name drew me in ;). But I was pleasantly surprised, when I took it home and tasted it. It had a wonderful texture, taste, and it did not contain loads of sugar. So it is now a regular staple in my morning breakfast paired with plain greek yogurt.

3. Benefit: They're Real! Mascara: I don't like to spend a lot of money on makeup. Most of the time I feel you can get a solid product without having to spend a fortune. However, I recently made a splurge on some mascara, and I am afraid that I won't go back :). I have always loved Benefit products, and when the sales attendant at Sephore recommended their mascara to me, I knew I was doomed. I tested the product at home, and I instantly loved it. It makes my thin lashes full and long, without being cakey. My daily routine does not include eyeliner anymore, because of this mascara. I know that the price tag is steep, but if you are in the market for a new mascara I would recommend this product.

4. The Skimm: I just started subscribing to the Skimm a couple of weeks ago, and now I look forward to it every morning with my cup of coffee. If you want a brief summary sent to your email every morning of what is going on in national and international affairs, I would recommend giving it a try. They break down the news stories into one paragraph. They also link their slimmed down story to the original content (so you can go into more depth if you would like to).

I hope you enjoyed What I'm Lovin' this week. Have you tried any of the products above? What are you loving this week?
