    Morning Routines to Ease Anxiety

    At the very root, the purpose of self care is to pour back into yourself while setting yourself up for success to perform at your best. If you are an anxious person like myself then you already know the benefits behind self care + having a solid routine that works for you. Morning routines are extremely important in my self care tool kit and for great reason too. Morning routines set the tone for your day + dictate how well you are able to maneuver as changes come throughout the day.  This is especially important for people like me who cope with anxiety every single day. Think about the last…

    Mask got you Chapped? DIY Lip Scrub

    As we move into cooler months you might notice your lips getting a little bit more chapped than usual. If you are anything like me, then you probably have gone through tons of chapstick, gloss and lip ointment since covid started. Before mask became mandatory pretty much everywhere outside of the house, I prided myself on taking really good care of my skin + lips. Having a good routine pretty much sets the foundation of how our skin ages. This is no different with the skin around the eyes, our hands and especially our lips. Let’s face it, skin care routines are like lifelines 🤷🏾‍♀️. Ok, so genetics + lifestyle…

    4 Step Skincare Routine

    (This page contains Affiliate Link. For more information see my disclosures, here) Let’s talk skin! Since we have been home, I have been extremely heavy on my normal self care routine. Recently I started upping the anty a bit in the skincare department. Pre-quarantine, my skincare routine was pretty thorough yet basic in the same breath. I did weekly face masks, jade rolling, exfoliating, creams and serums. You name it, I probably have done it one way or another. The issue has never been taking the steps to take care of my skin. The real issue has always been staying consistent. Come on, I cant be the only one that…

    Nutrition Dense Smoothie

    Over the last few weeks we have talked meditation, getting movement in our body and even cleansing our spaces (externally + internally). As a person that wears many hats, mom, wife, business owner, I know all too well how easy nutrition can get lost in the mix of things especially as survival mode kicks in. At the start of the year I made a conscious decision that no matter what was going on that I would put my body first. Now did I think that I would need to keep that promise during Covid or Social Injustice, no not at all. However now more than ever I realize the importance of taking care…

    Are Massages Worth it?

    Well apparently it is “Everybody Deserves a Massage Week”! First off, I had no idea that this was even a thing, secondly, say no more! Massages as simple as they are, is an amazing tool to have in the self care toolkit. In its most simplest definition a massage is the act of kneading and rubbing the body with the hands. During a massage pressure is placed on various parts of the joints, muscles and body to release pain + tension. We are talking a physical, emotional and mental type of self-care when it comes to massages. Massages are much more than just a way to relax or a very…

    Anti- Aging Skin Habits

    That Wont Break the Bank Unless you are new here, then you already know self care is one of my ESSENTIAL non-negotiable acts that I do for myself on a daily basis. For me self care and skin care go hand in hand. So taking care of my skin is a huge priority for me. Regardless if its self care or skin care, I am all about doing the things that help my cup stay full + treating my body right. Lately I have been on a major skin care overhaul and I realized that it is super easy to get caught up in the product hype and over purchase.…

    Are you Exhausted? Self -Care Tips for Exhausted Empaths

    Being an Empath can be challenging in general, but right now more than ever it is EXHAUSTING. Not to be confused with just having empathy which is surface level, the ability to understand or share feelings of others. Being an empath or a highly sensitive person goes much deeper than understanding feelings and emotions that don’t belong to you. As an empath we hold space for others; their emotions and energies take up space within our bodies + minds while sometimes displacing our own emotions and feelings. So to keep it simple to understand an empath, if you feel it they feel it. Having the ability to have an open…

    Do You Even Exfoliate?

    Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your entire body? Its funny to think about skin as an organ, but it is. Our skin is much like a child or an older person, honest to a fault. If something isnt right on the inside, it will most definitely present itself on the outside.  Taking care of your skin can be so easy with the basics of staying hydrated, eating properly and exfoliating regularly. Yes you read that correctly. Exfoliating. Exfoliating is a key process that so many people miss when it comes to caring for the skin, and not just the skin on our faces.  As…
