HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2018 | COZY GIFTS FOR WELL BEING

This gift guide is for the self-care enthusiast or for someone seeking to make some changes for well being within the new year.  All of the items I have listed here are great for cleansing and getting rid of toxins as well as staying cozy during the upcoming colder winter months.  

cozy gifting for your well being

 

| 1. CANDLE | 2. SLEEP MASK | 3. OIL DIFFUSER

| 4. SMUDGE STICK SET | 5. LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL |

| 6. EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL | 7. TEA CUP

| 8. CHARCOAL SOAP | 9. BEAUTY DUST | 10. CLAY MASK |

| 11. DETOX BATH SOAK | 12. MOON JUICE BOOK

| 13. COCONUT MILK  BATH SOAK | 14. BATHTUB CADDY |

 

In case you are wondering what some of these things are I’ll be happy to explain.  A few years ago, I discovered Smudge and Palo Santo sticks which are burned to get rid of negative energy in your space and within yourself.  I introduced them into my home and have been occasionally burning them since.  

The Beauty Dust is just one of many that are listed within the mixes.  I haven’t tried them all, but I’m definitely wanting to because I believe they are beneficial and comforting.

Herbivore is a non-toxic beauty brand created with natural ingredients and no hard chemicals.  They also create their products without any fillers, meaning that every ingredient in their products is what they call an “active” ingredient.

Lafco candles are a little on the higher end of the candle counter, but they are soy based and last a really long time.  Also, they come in beautiful glass blown jars that you can reuse after the candle is gone.

Last but not least essential oils and essential oil diffusers have been all the rage lately.  The benefits that they bring you are so amazing!  My personal preference is lavender, but you can mix and match all kinds of scents.  (Also, please be aware that if you have any pets at home, you will need to read this post here as they should not be inhaling certain scents due to health hazards.)  Some of them are sort of a no-brainer like who would want to have garlic used in an essential oil diffuser, but there are some that I would have never guessed so brush up on this topic for sure!

That’s it!  I figured you probably already know about the other items on the list, but if you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments below!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
