Some of My Favorite Things

I think we can tell how much we enjoy or love something by how much we desire to share it with others. That’s true for me at least. When I discover something that has a great impact on me, that feels wonderful, that makes me laugh, that makes me think, I want to share it!

I recently curated some of my current favorite things to share with you! The entire curated list can be found here but I thought I’d share my top 5, in no particular order.


#1 Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Find Them Here

My eyes are the worst. I wear contacts, stare at a computer or some kind of screen almost all day every day, and in turn, get major headaches from it. Blue Light Blockers do just that! The lenses protect your precious eyes from the harmful blue light that is coming off of this very screen you’re staring at right now!

I purchases these exact glasses back in December of 2018 and when I wear them I’ve noticed I don’t get headaches like I used to…. and they’re super cute. There are some brands that are charging $60+ for each pair, but I found these babies on Amazon for about $17, so I consider that a win!

#2 She Reads Truth Bible

I purchased this Bible last January of 2018. So after using it for a little over a year I can say that I continue to love it. The translation that She Reads Truth uses is the Christian Standard Bible translation. I think it’s easy to understand while still staying accurate to the original language as best it can.

This Bible has room in the margins to journal, book descriptions and history, maps, timelines, and reading plans with devotionals for each book in the Bible as well. It’s beautiful and I’m still obsessed with it a year later.

#3 White BlenderBottle

I use these types of shaker bottles at least twice every single day. I use them to shake up my coffee with Keto Kreme and then later in the day I use one to shake up and drink my Ketone.

This one is my all time favorite for a couple reasons. It’s not huge and bulky. It fits in the cup holder in my car. It’s white. It has translucent clear areas that I can see the color of what I’m shaking up! It cleans very easily in the dishwasher and doesn’t stain.

#4 Everything But The Bagel Seasoning

If you follow the blog at all you know that this past year I’ve dived into learning about the ketogenic, low carb lifestyle. This seasoning has been one of the BEST things I’ve found when living with this way of eating. This seasoning is perfect on almost anything.

I put it on avocado, scrambled eggs, roasted chicken, cucumbers with cream cheese, and so much more I can’t even type them all. Do yourself a favor and add this to your life. It’s delicious.

#5 Silk Pillowcases

Variety of Sizes & Colors Here

This one may be the one that makes you go, “Ummm… ok?” BUT I’ve been determined to restore my damaged hair. One of the things I found in my ‘research’ was that silk pillowcases are softer on your hair, less drying on your hair and keeps the moisture in.

So, I bought two of them. One for me and one for the husband. He doesn’t really care about it but I love it. I’ve taken other steps to care for my hair and skin but this little step is so comfy and soft and makes hopping into bed very enjoyable.

January Ketone Experience

 

It’s time for a special ketone experience to kick off 2019! It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a special experience pack but what better time to launch one than the beginning of a new year?

This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.
