I'm getting back in the swing of things sharing products that I LOVE, so here is what I LOVED in June ...
BeeFree Chocolate Warrior Mix: I fell in love with BeeFree Warrior Mix after the first bite and fell in love again after learning more about the company. The BeeFree company was founded by Jennifer Wiese after she learned about the positive impact that a gluten and dairy free diet could have on her son with autism. Aren't moms just the best?! Warrior Mix is a gluten-free, grainless Paleo granola mix that is made with nuts & seeds (no oats), sea salt, coconut oil and sweetened with honey. It has big clusters that you can easily grab as a snack or crumble on top of a smoothie bowl and, in my opinion is sweet enough to replace a cookie if you're craving one! I've tried all five mixes — and I'm a sucker for the chocolate, so it's definitely my #1 love, but the others are all very close to my heart. You can check them all out here!
Further Food Collagen Peptides: Now that I'm 35, I'm paying much closer attention to the fine lines and wrinkles on my face. I'd like to tell you they don't bother me, but I'd be lying. I am all about nourishing, healing and getting great skin from the inside out and one of the ways I do that is with collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body — it makes up 90% of our connective tissue and 20% of our skin. Unfortunately in our 20s, we start to produce less collagen, which leads to wrinkles, saggy skin, joint stiffness and weaker bones. Talk about a downer! Enter Further Food Collagen Peptides — HELLO! Further Food Collagen peptides come from high quality, grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine, are odorless, tasteless and instantly dissolve in liquids so it's a staple in my daily coffee or smoothie!

Clarisea Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant: This exfoliant makes me feel like I was just at the beach — and makes my skin feel smooth and look so bright! Clarisea products first peeked my interest when I saw the very simple, yet very effective ingredients. The Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant has ONLY 4 ingredients — and you can pronounce each one! Talk about going straight to my heart. There is Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder that is used to absorb and whisk away dirt and excess oil, Almond Flour to brighten the skin and powdered Pacific Ocean & Himalayan Pink Sea Salts to exfoliate (and why I feel like I was just at the beach!). I mix the exfoliant with my cream cleanser and LOVE that I can customize the amount of exfoliator based on what my skin needs on any given day. Check it out here!
Beautycounter Plumping Mist: Facial mists seemed like the last thing I needed to add to my beauty routine, but now I use one every day! I use the Beautycounter+ #2 Plumping Mist to prep my skin and set my makeup for the day. Here's how I've added it to my routine: After cleansing, I use two to three spritzes to prep my skin for the day. It provides a first layer of hydration and protection from outside stressors before I moisturize and apply makeup. After applying makeup, I use another two spritzes to set my makeup for the day and give my skin a dewy look. Beautycounter has several facial mists, but I chose the Plumping Mist for the extra hydration to help reduce the appearance of my fine lines! I'm fighting them from the inside and out!
