Mini review time! #koraorganicsgiftedme I've been trying out this @koraorganics Turmeric Glow Moisturizer for the past couple of weeks, and I am obviously going to tell you all the reasons I love it. 1. It is just so absolutely light and creamy. You can see the texture in the video in this carousel. At first I though it was going to be too thick and heavy for the spring, but it wasn't. 2. It doesn't have a super strong smell and it doesn't turn my skin orange. The scent is light to match the texture. It's a unique smell, but it doesn't smell bad at all. Also, the turmeric doesn't leave my skin looking orange. That was actually something I was a little worried about when I saw how orange it was in the jar. 3. The packaging! Not only the jar lid so mesmerizing, but the whole jar is reusable, too! You can purchase individual moisturizer pods to place in the jar, so you don't have to throw out a bunch of jars when you inevitably buy this moisturizer again. I love that. Thank you, @koraorganics @sephora for gifting me this product to try out. #GlowTime #noniglow
Do you know what adaptogens are or do you keep hearing that word and forgetting to research it like I used to? 🤣 Even though adaptogens seem to be trending in the wellness community, they have been around for centuries. Basically, adaptogens are herbal substances that can help combat the negative effects of stress. They have become really popular during 2020 when everyone's stress levels seemed to be at an all time high. I decided to do my research on adaptogens and put it into this cute little guide for you to save for later. Plus, I shared a few of my current favorite adaptogenic products that you can try out for yourself. Have you ever tried any adaptogens before? Let me know!
☀️Be honest. Do you wear sunscreen every day? Honestly, I only started wearing sunscreem every day about a month ago because I usually hate how regular sunscreen looks and feels on my skin. 🤢 Plus, I almost never burn so I rarely think about it. Now after my recent interest in skincare, I have learned that I can still get sun damage even without getting burned. So my solution to not wanting to wear sunscreen was to find one that had all the benefits ans none of the stuff that I usually hate about SPF. I am absolutely loving this Blockstar SPF from @bliss for these reasons: ✅ It doesn't leave a white cast at all! ✅ It doesn't have that gross sunblock smell. ✅ It doesn't feel or look greasy on my face. ✅ It is lightweight, yet fully protective. ✅ It's affordable, too! You can find it at @target for around $20. So now that I've recommended a great mineral sunscreen, go get yourself some so you have no more excuses not to wear your SPF! 🤣 • • • • #BlockstarSPF #giftedbybliss #ThisIsBliss
We do want to have kids someday in the future, so I decided to test my fertility hormones at home to get as much information and insight as I can about my body and reproductive wellness. I documented my whole experience with @modernfertility in this video.

Do you want to have kids someday? For those of you who keep asking when we're having kids, the answer is "not yet." 🤣 Even though we aren't planning to start a family for a little while, I still wanted to learn more about my body and create a plan for when we are ready to start our family. I reached out to @modernfertility after I saw several ads for their at home Fertility Hormone Testing Kit. I was instantly curious to know all about how hormones play into fertility and whether or not I had a healthy egg count for my age (both are things I can learn from taking this test!) For all the details about the test, swipe through this post. And for a complete video diary of my whole experience, check out my most recent IGTV. Modern Fertility gifted me a Fertility Hormone Test Kit so I could document my experience and give my opinion, and, honestly, this is one of the coolest collaborations I have worked on since being a content creator. Thank you @modernfertility! #gifted
How does scalp health affect hair growth? Swipe to find out. ad | I used to not to take great care of my curls. About a year ago, I really started to take care of them by adjusting my techniques and switching to cleaner products. By my hair had been a little damaged from years of mishandling. I noticed some hair loss along my hair line, part, and temples and I couldn't figure out what to do about it. Then @glammednaturallyoil reached out to me so I could try out their products that promoted hair growth and I started learning about scalp health and how it correlated with hair growth.

Answer this in the comments: How do you like your pillow - soft, medium, or firm? I personally like mine to be medium as I find that is my sweet spot. But did you know that there's a pillow company out there that offers even more personalization for your perfect pillow? Cadia sent me (and Ed) pillows to try out so I can review them for you. Here are some of the cool things I love about this pillow: 1. They're hypoallergenic - which is perfect for me because too many things give me allergic reactions. 2. You can choose your preferred level of firmness. There's a quiz on their website to help find the right firmness level for you. 3. You can adjust the height of your pillow! Each one comes with 3 pillow inserts that you can add or remove to find your perfect pillow height. 4. Cadia will recycle your old pillow for you. My experience: The pillows arrived vacuum sealed in bags so I had to let them "inflate" which was kind of cool. Next, I had to fluff each of the inserts up so the pillow would get to the right size. Then, I had to test out the height for my pillow. I'm not gonna lie. The first night I was a little worried that I wouldn't like the pillow because my head kept sliding off in the middle of the night. Well, I later discovered it was because the pillow was too high for me, and that was an easy fix. I just removed one of the inserts to find the right height. Honestly, this pillow is exactly what I needed. It's not cheaply made and it doesn't sag over time. We've been using them for a month and can honestly say that they are our favorites. Also, if you use ALAYNA20 at checkout, you will get 20% off your next order. Sweet dreams! Thank you Cadia for gifting me these pillows in exchange for my honest review.
I am in love this this @origins face mask! I do a face mask at least once a week, and I tried out this one for the first time. This Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay not only looks cute, but it feels so great on my skin and it doesn't feel like it strips my face of moisture like other clay masks tend to do. You can purchase this mask at @sephora or @ultabeauty for around $13. #discoverorigins #skinimalism #skinstagram #cleanatsephora #sephoraskincare #momentswithorigins #originstribe #shareitulta #ultabeauty #selfcareday

As someone is always looking to try new products but doesn't want to waste my money on anything, I needed to create a system for choosing what products were worth my money. When I started becoming more interested in wellness and healthy living, I was a little discouraged to find that A LOT of marketed "clean" and "wellness" products seemed way out of my price range. That's why I created this rubric for how I am now going to purchase products. The rubric that I like to call the "Clean Screen Test" is on the 8th slide above. From now on, when I talk about a product in a feed post, this is the rating system I will use. It will help determine if the product will fit with MY lifestyle and needs - not necessarily yours. I use this to provide transparency to my true thoughts on the brands I work with and talk about so you can make informed and thoughtful decisions, too. If you want me to rate a brand using this rubric, comment it below and I will fill out the rubric for that brand in my stories!
Having something you look forward to prepared for you every morning will make it that much easier to get out of bed even if you didn’t have a restful night’s sleep or you have a long day ahead of you. Having a consistent bed time and wake up time that ensures that you get enough sleep is key. How many times have you just hit the snooze button 5 times or just turned off your alarm and gone right back to sleep? In order to help prepare you for the day, I am offering you my FREE Morning Routine Planner to help you craft the perfect morning routine that works for YOU.
Be sure to add any additional details (location, time, etc.) into your planner, and, if you need to, set a reminder on your phone for the day before or an hour before so you don’t forget. I personally don’t like to schedule specific meals for each day because I like to eat what I am in the mood for. I like to keep a running list of items that can wait and save them for my life admin day that I plan for the end of the month. You might need to actually add a phone call with your friend to your calendar in order to make sure you have time to chat.
