Last week I wasn’t planning on doing a monthly favorites post. Mostly because I couldn’t think of anything and December was so Christmas focused all I could think of was gifts Little A got for Christmas. But then I started making a list as things came to me and I have a few things I really want to share with you all that I love!
Favorite Christmas present
I had wanted to get Huebie and I FitBits for Christmas, but didn’t have the funds after getting him some bigger items. So he surprised me and got us both Jawbones! And we both love them! I use it to track my steps, sleep, fitness and calories. I don’t count calories every day, but it’s pretty useful. Their library of food options is a bit limited, but I just do the best I can. And you can create your own food items in the app as well. You can also set an activity reminder, so every 45 minutes if I haven’t moved my behind, it vibrates on my wrist. It has definitely got me moving more that’s for sure!
These 2 products actually span from I’d say October on, but I have forgotten to share them until now! My hair is very fine, but I have a lot of it. I also have zero volume in my hair. So my hair stylist recommended both of these Kenra products to me and so far I’m loving them! They give my hair a good boost of volume and when combined with my dry shampoo, my second day hair looks awesome! You can get them at most beauty supply stores.
I originally got Cedarwood to help Huebie sleep. Every so often he would have trouble sleeping. It wasn’t an all the time thing, but when he couldn’t sleep, it was pretty bad. It would go on for a few weeks where he’d be up all night, then he’d sleep fine. Then a month later he’d have trouble sleeping again. Cedarwood was a miracle worker. I diffuse that with another oil called Peace & Calming before bed and he hasn’t had trouble sleeping since. (PS. If you want more info on essential oils, check out my new Young Living Essential Oils page HERE.)
I did more research and found out Cedarwood is also good for acne, dandrub, cellulite, UTIs and hair loss, among other things. So guess who is my guinea pig for the hair loss?! Yep, the hubs again. I took before photos so we’ll see how his hair looks after 30 days. 🙂
New TV show
Oh Lord this show. I don’t even know what to say. I love it, but at times I hate it. But overall I really like it. We just started the second season so we’ll see what I think of it as we get further in. After the first episode of this season though, I seriously want to hurt Piper for being so dang naive!
Happy hump day friends!
