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

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
  • Cheers to the weekend! 🥂Currently contemplating whether I should take down our Christmas decor or leave it up til New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts on this? I need some advice 🙃
