Happy November Ya'll! We just moved the clocks back here on the west coast and it has me in gratitude mode- and daydreaming about all things autumn. When I think about the sights, smells & colors associated with fall, the very first thing that comes to mind is - wait for it... pumpkin spice. I know, I'm basically as basic as it gets but hey, we gotta do what we love, right?
Today, I am presenting you: Beyond Grateful
Lash Release Alert!
Today is the day- and SLV Babes are getting them first!
You are receiving the newest lash in my collection- it's so new that it doesn't even have a name! This lash is my new favorite! She is long, lengthy, and bold without heaviness. I swear you will not know that you are wearing them! ... except for the compliments I guess. :) So, just to see how many of you actually read this- here's a test. Reply to this post with a name suggestion and the winner gets another pair, on me.
Next up, I have found these clean, feel-good lip scrub + balm kits that I promise you will want seconds of! This is a whole experience, the scent hits you first, then the beautiful texture of the scrub as well as the sweet softness of the lip balm- OMG this is the best of the best this time of year. If you like pumpkin pie, this is the at-home lip treatment for you. And bonus: no calories. :)
I have also included for my fellow collagen lovers, Beauty Tonic Beauty Collagen. This unflavored, all-natural dietary supplement is so easy to add to your daily beauty routine. It comes in super convenient stick packs so you can keep it next to your coffee maker in the morning to add a quick hit of collagen - or keep them in your purse to add to your Starbucks run mid-afternoon. If you haven't added collagen to your regimen, here's why you should:
By our mid-twenties, our body’s collagen production drastically diminishes. You can naturally replenish your body’s collagen to prevent and reverse the formation of wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks. Collagen is what makes our skin radiant, hair long, and nails strong. - AND YOU CAN BLEND THIS INTO ALMOST ANYTHING! I used a few packs in my homemade pumpkin pie the other day, talk about a win. Okkkk.
Do you even smudge? I, myself have to make a conscious effort to understand spiritual energy. I think the California girl in me is really shining through here. :) But for real- most of us remember to take care of our bodies with exercise, what we eat, and our skin care practices. Why don't we take more time keeping our spiritual health in tip-top shape? Well, enter this sage bundle, and it's so cute, too! I read that burning sage is one of the purest and oldest methods of cleansing yourself or your space. I think right after spooky season is actually a great time to cleanse my house. The benefits of burning sage in your home are many:
~Clears negative energy
~Uplifts your mood
~Freshens the air you breathe by clearing bacteria
~Aids in sleep & helps with anxiety
Alright, so are you ready to cleanse this bishhh?
Here's how I do it:
First, you need to open the doors & windows throughout your space.
Light the end of the smudge bundle & blow the flame out until the embers glow orange. The leaves should smolder slowly, releasing a thick pungent smoke.
Move the bundle around the space you want to cleanse while directing the smoke with the other hand. Try guiding the smoke- and the bad energy if that's an issue right out the open doors or windows.
Allow the ash to collect in a shell or small glass bowl. (Also use this to extinguish the bundle, water will ruin it.)
Sticking with the theme this month I found shower steamers in fun fall scents to spice up your morning - or evening shower routine. With scents like cinnamon bun, pumpkin spice, and fig leaf you pretty much can't go wrong with whichever you receive. I have thoroughly enjoyed waking up to these the times I have used them.
Feeling Grateful? Well, I sure am- especially grateful for all of you reading this. I picked these gold layering necklaces with the sweet message of thanks to send out with my Black Friday orders this month but decided to save them for you. If it isn't your style it would make a super adorable hostess gift for Thanksgiving..just sayin'. I'd be happy to get one. :)
If you have been reading my blog for a while you know this has been on my list of favorite things ever. And for good reason! My Verb energy bars check all of the boxes: caffeine..yup. Tastes good? Oh yes. Seasonal...Oh yeah. I sent ya'll 2 Pumpkin Spice energy bars and you will hopefully fall in love as I have. Use this link to get a free starter kit of Verb energy bars- you can't go wrong with coconut chai, it's my all-time favorite flavor.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading this ~ but more importantly, I really do hope that you enjoy this month's SLV Babes Box. I have put a ton of energy into finding products I can stand behind, that will hopefully make your lives a little bit better. That being said, I am always open to your feedback. If you like it, love it or hate it - all reviews help me to make these boxes better each month. Have you filled out our SLV Babes Questionnaire yet? This series of questions helps us to send you items in the future that are perfectly suited for YOU!
