lux life, vol. 1
- Washing my face with this guy
It's like an electric toothbrush but for your face. It has given me such a deeper clean and has honestly changed the texture and tone of my skin. Love this thing and I can tell to difference in my skin texture and glow when I do and don't use it. I use it twice daily, morning and night. I bought mine in blue and use the silicon head.
- Bringing my own cup to the coffee shop
I drink an iced coffee/cold brew every morning. We usually buy a half gallon of the cold brew we love from our favorite place and drink that throughout the week. However, every once in awhile, I like to actually go to the coffee shop and get a special Nitro Brew. In which case, I will bring in my own reusable cup, with a lid and straw. I receive a 25 cent discount and don't have to waste plastic. a win-win-win-win-win.
- Getting rid of the stuff I don't use
I have been making space for the things I don't use/like/care about by donating/selling/recycling/tossing. It is a very, very freeing exercise. I love how after I get rid of something, I literally don't care at all. It's pretty cool. I feel disconnected from material objects and seeing them for what they are, just things that no longer bring me joy or are just crowding my space. I also feel like I am opening up my space for more of the things that suit my taste and my lifestyle. If this interests you at all, check out this book.
- My favorite shoes, of all time
I am obsessed with these shoes. I love that they're vegan. They're incredibly comfortable. They look cute with everything. They're incredibly practical. Extremely well made. I wear them everyday and they're the only shoe I need besides this guy.
- Celebrating my cycle
I am feeling so in tuned with my body and one of the things I am beginning to see as incredibly bad ass instead of a burden is my period and cycle. I always looked at it as a pain and something to be embarrassed about, however, it's actually a really special part of being a woman. I have synced my cycle to the lunar cycle, I track my ovulation and enjoy the monthly detox my body goes through. Super grateful for my period and reproductive health and you and should be, too! Check out this tool I use to track my ovulation.
