Hey y’all! I’m writing this as I’m on the road to Nashville for a two day retreat with my fellow Beautycounter Directors. I’ve actually never been to Nashville so this is a big deal for me for multiple reasons. It feels amazing to be rewarded for my hard work with my business and also spending time with other women who have done the same. Surrounding yourself with other powerful women is so empowering, there’s not another feeling like it.
Friday favorites on my blog is something that I am excited about starting this new year. Y’all have expressed so much interest in the everyday things that I share on my instastories. It’s nice to put them in a solid space that y’all can reference when you have some free time. I feel like life gets so hectic and I love just slowing down and sharing more every day things.
This week is all about random things I got in the mail. Because of the snow storm in South Carolina (the entire state shut down over a few inches of snow, haha) my mail was backed up after a few days. The amount of stuff that came this week is insane and Derrek totally side eyed me as he brought packages in. Hahaha! Normally, I space them out but it just all piled in at once this week.
Y’all, I am such a lover of Simple pieces of clothing that can be worn multiple ways and styles easily with everything. I don’t love shirts with “I love mommy” or pictures of bears or what not on them. I want solid colors and lots of them. I was in need of some pajamas and plain tops (as per Derrek’s request.) after we went through the stomach bug with her and changed her clothes a 100x, he was more than willing to send me out to get her the things she needed. I ordered a few colors in the zippered footie pjs and tops so I could test the quality but so far so good. AND when you order the first time, they give you a really nice discount code.
2. The Joggling Board
Ok, I’ve already got spring fever. I’m just gonna lay that out there. I’m not even ashamed. Spring means Beautiful, sunny, warm weather and also different clothing. I am normally a neutrals Girl but Spring makes me feel like having all the bright colors. I do splurge on a few pieces of Lilly Pulitzer during this season and I was thrilled to catch a sale from a local Lilly Store. I was able to get two beautiful dresses for like 75% off. I’m so pumped to wear them this year! The Joggling Board is having this sale on their Facebook page so hop on over and see if any of the pieces are still available.
3. Beautycounter Market Tote and Lip Sheer Evergreen Set
This duo isn’t actually for me. My new business partner, Camille, took on joining the safer beauty movement as a consultant, all the while, working hard as a mom and having another full time job. She set her goals and within a few short months, worked hard to become a Director. So to reward her, on top of the pay and bonuses sent to her from Beautycounter, I bought her these two things for her business. A great thing that Beautycounter has taught me, is to reward my team when they work hard. Anoth r exciting part of this is that I am able to gift these to her in person at the Directors Retreat.
4. Molly Suds Laundry Detergent
It’s been really hard to find a non toxic laundry detergent that performs well. Derrek is ridiculously picky about his products, to the point of almost being annoying, so it’s been nice to hear that he loves this brand. It has a peppermint smell, that’s not over powering, and also cleans your clothes getting all the hard stains out. It also lasts a lot longer than other detergents that I’ve tried. Phalates are something that is hidden under the blanket term “fragrance” and is a big culprit of a lot of skin irritation. I love knowing that I can recommend this to everyone and it’s safe and effective.
Ok, I’ve written as much as possible before having to switch with Olga for driving the rest of the way! Y’all follow along as I check out Nashville. I’m excited to share more about the trip when I get home. Anddddd look forward to next weeks follow Friday!
