Somethings are just too good not to share with your friends. Today I have rounded up my top five things I’ve been loving lately and I’m sharing here with you, my friends.
“Drink more water.” You hear it everywhere. I have always suffered with headaches, pretty much everyday, multiple times a day. Over the years I’ve cut out caffeine from sodas and that helped some. I was still taking Excedrin Migraine nearly every day of the week for headaches until I realized that was causing “rebound” headaches from my body wanting the caffeine in the Excedrin. The withdrawal period of over a month was NOT fun but I stopped taking Excedrin Migraine completely and the daily headaches slowly went away. Things were getting better though I still couldn’t shake a dull headache once or twice a week. That’s where this daily tracker water bottle comes in to play. When I started drinking half of my body weight in water per day, I stopped getting headaches almost completely. I was getting headaches from being dehydrated.
When I would drink from a regular glass, I couldn’t force myself to drink more than 8-16 ounces a day. With the daily tracker water bottle I find it really easy to get my 64 ounces a day in by pacing myself according to the markings on the bottle. Extra bonus, maybe my dry skin starts looking more hydrated, as well. Is the bottle necessary. Maybe not. But I’ll take whatever works to get me to drink more water and stop the headaches.

I would arrive at the studio and always seemed to have my hands full from my car to the door. It never failed, as soon as I got to the door, I either dropped my keys or dropped something in my hands trying to find the key to the door. The brilliant solution to my problem – the O-Venture key ring. It’s made to slip on your wrist like a bracelet. They come in a ton of cute colors and even have matching wristlets for ID and cash. I liked my key ring so much I bought one for Easter for my daughter, too. Click HERE to shop.
I have been
blessed cursed with teeny tiny short eyelashes. I had eyelash extensions for a couple of years and really liked them but they say you’re supposed to give your lashes a break every so often so I had them taken off. Then I learned about the wonder of magnetic eyelashes. I’ve shared my love for them on InstaStories in the past. Total game changer. I wear them almost every day. One strip sits on the top of your regular lashes and the other strips snaps to the bottom of your lashes. When you’re done with them for the day, you simply pull them off and put them away until you’re ready for them again.
For daily wear, I use the Ardell 001 accents. They are just partial strips that accentuate the outer corner of the eyes. I do cut the length down just a bit so they aren’t too dramatic. For special events, I wear the Double 110. The 110s are full strip lashes. There are several different styles to choose from. I do recommend the Ardell brand over other cheaper brands. The magnets stick better. I’m not going to lie. It takes some practice to put them on but once you get the hang of it, you won’t want to leave the house without them. Click HERE to shop.
I first purchased Girl, Wash Your Face to read while sitting outside for hours potty training a new puppy. I had heard about the book was quite popular so I grabbed not having any idea what it was about. Now I have both of her motivational books as well as the Start Today Journal. Whether you’re a teenager, newlywed, wanting to start a business or just an oldie but goodie like me, I highly suggest you read her books and follow her on social media. Because we can all use a good dose of motivation each day. Her lifestyle blog is great, too.
This hose is a game changer. I love it so much, I’m getting a second one this year for the back of the house. It’s lightweight, easy to drag around the yard without getting those annoying kinks and compactly stores away between uses. It is 100% worth the price. Click HERE to shop.
