This time round, I’ve included just a few family gems, just a few magnificence finds, one thing for the hubs, and some goodies/much-needed gadgets for the kiddo (mine’s 9-going-on-16). Due to Linzi for hipping us to that awesome Hum toothbrush, btw. (Sienna loves the app problem!) And don’t miss this eco-friendly, sensitive-skin-friendly laundry detergent. It’s my new go-to.
Whether or not you’re purchasing to your dwelling, your friends or your self (hey, it’s my birthday month, so I say deal with yo-self, pals), there’s a bit of little bit of one thing for everybody on this considerably random roundup.
For the husband: 15
I’ve all the time wished to be an individual who journals every single day. I feel having a report of your life and your little moments every day is such a particular thought…in principle. I’ve by no means finished it. Granted, my pal Posy identified that we doc with images, however I’d prefer to create a extra strong behavior of writing. ‘The Five Minute Journal‘ has actually helped me make a acutely aware effort.
I like that it guides you however isn’t super-specific in what you need to write about. I’ll use it to create the behavior, then simply go to a totally open journal after I’m used to the day by day addition to my routine.
Merely a favourite in our family. These cat-shaped pens have a pleasant wonderful tip, and whereas they’re not the highest-quality pens ever, they’re DANG CUTE. And actually they work fairly nicely. This set comes with additional refills, so you may proceed to make use of the lovable cat outer with out losing them.
I sometimes don’t love most espresso creamers, flavors, and so on. Give me straight up half-and-half solely, please. However I do love getting protein into my morning routine. I used to make use of the common collagen peptides, however for some purpose — possibly as a result of I don’t sweeten my espresso? — I can now style them, particularly with my heated Ember mug. And no person needs barely bone-broth-tasting espresso.
SO…I not too long ago tried this mocha version of Vital Proteins creamer, and I find it irresistible. It’s an incredible mocha taste however not candy (just one gram of sugar per two-scoop serving) and has 10 grams of protein per serving. I now combine one scoop of this with one scoop of the unique collagen peptides, and that helps completely masks the flavour and provides me 14 grams of protein in my cup of espresso. LOVE. It’s additionally non-dairy and gluten-free.
Ordered this water bottle for myself…the 9-year-old stole it. The outer sleeve is very nice and makes it really feel super-luxe. My kiddo loves the side-carry deal with and little strap. As a result of it doesn’t have a straw, I feel I’ll let her hold it (I desire a straw, she doesn’t), however in case you’re the identical you would possibly love this! I’ll be sincere, I ordered it as a result of it appears to be like super-cute.
That is a great two-pack of classy, simple refillable soap dispensers. These aren’t glass, however they’re completely affordable, and as a lot as issues get dropped in our home, I believed that was most secure.
Skip the tacky labels that include or make your personal if needed. I saved one on the sink and one in my bathe for the bathe gel (here’s my fave shower gel.)
This is my favorite at-home gel-manicure product. They’re simple to make use of and treatment with a UV mild, they usually’re not messy. Extra particulars on how I apply them could be present in my current article about at-home manicures. This shade is my newest favourite!
I’ve wished to change to an eco-friendly packing tape for some time. This one works nice to date! It appears like masking tape however sticks higher than that may on cardboard, and I may even use it simply with the tape gun I have already got.
I’d utterly run out of Post-it notes, and whereas I don’t use fairly as many as I used to, I would like them typically for writing fast lists and labeling issues to donate or return to pals. They’re additionally useful for leaving delicate hints to your “roommates” to get their chores finished. Heh.
If you realize me in any respect, you realize one in all my favourite treats is a doughnut (old school all the best way, pls). Loved these little Valentine cards that I shared with my kiddo but additionally plan to provide to pals of my very own. They arrive with the cutest little stamps which might be a pleasant various for our pals/kiddos with allergy symptoms, or Sienna’s buddy in school who was not too long ago identified with Sort 1 diabetes.
Wow. I simply used this Dirty Labs laundry detergent on a load of hubs’ stuff that tends to hold on to odors, and the smells are GONE. It smells so contemporary, however he has delicate pores and skin, so I may by no means use scented something earlier than. This detergent simply has delicate notes of bergamot and cedar, and the garments scent contemporary once more! I’m SOLD on this. It’s freed from all EU-listed allergens, so it’s protected for these delicate varieties! I simply ordered the larger bottle. Dirty Labs also has a laundry booster, which I simply received and can report again on!
These Nutcase helmets are our favourite helmets for kiddos and adults alike. Not solely are they high quality and comfy, however additionally they have the cutest designs!
Oof, kiddo is hitting the early hormones phases already, and I’m not prepared. However at the very least we are able to make skincare cute with these round- and star-shaped acne patches! My assistant final yr, now a freshman in school, loves this stuff. I’m positive numerous manufacturers are higher than others, however I went with cute as Sienna’s intro. Then, we’ll take a look at these out and maybe try the pricier kinds later.
By no means thought I’d be running a blog about gecko style, however right here we’re. How hilarious is this little cowboy set? Sienna and pal Posy’s kiddo each have leopard geckos, so clearly that is what they received for Valentine’s Day this yr. Apparently, they give the impression of being smashing on bearded dragons, as nicely.
Sienna loves the smaller toothbrush design and the softer setting for her braces — AND, after all, the truth that she will borrow my cellphone and compete in opposition to her previous self to see how she’s brushing. I really like that the Hum electric toothbrush a bit smaller total than our Oral B electrical toothbrushes, making it simpler for her to carry. To date, it’s an incredible improve!
L’Occitane Eau Des Baux is BEST scent for lovers of earthy colognes…nonetheless contemporary and never too pine-heavy. Arms-down my favourite for Pinky, and he’s worn it for years. That is his Valentine’s Day reward! We don’t all the time do massive presents — normally we simply go to dinner, which we’re additionally doing — however I couldn’t resist getting him the total line of merchandise this yr.
As all the time, hope this was useful for family or gifting wants! Tell us of any fab Amazon finds you’ve run throughout these days! Till subsequent time…
