Five On Friday: Clean Products

    Hello friends, and happy Friday! I have been a bit MIA this week, life has been crazy! I am sharing one of the reasons for that below! But before I sign off for the weekend (no really, I just got an e-mail that we only have 10% of our data remaining and we are heading to the lake with no wi-fi, oops!) I am keeping it short and sweet and sharing a few things I am absolutely LOVING lately-a few of which are clean products that WORK!

    Job Promotion!

    About two months ago, my boss e-mailed me about discussing some changes to my job role. Many conversations and an obnoxious internal transfer process later, I have finally been able to announce my new role to my colleagues and have had some old responsibilities taken off my plate with some new ones added. It was an unexpected opportunity, and in all honestly it really recharged me and got me feeling excited about the work I am doing. The past year at work has been a rollercoaster, and I am finally feeling good about some things. It has just been a very pleasant surprise and blessing for both me professionally, as well as for my family!

    Headed to the lake!

    I shared over on my Instagram recently, but my in-laws bought a lake place! For those of you that don’t know, living in the land of 10,000 lakes and not having a lake to go to can kind of be a bummer 😉 So we are OVER THE MOON about the new place! We made a last minute decision to head up tonight after they officially close. We will be coming right back tomorrow morning for a wedding, but I absolutely cannot wait to see the boys explore the camper and dip their toes in the lake for the first time!

    Natural Deodorant

    Okay you guys, we have been cleaning up the products we use in our house for the past year. And a month or two ago, we decided it was time to tackle our deodorant. I have been using antiperspirant for YEARS, and was so scared to make the change. Reading what was IN my antiperspirant did help, though-yikes! I tried a natural deodorant, but I was experiencing what I had feared-not feeling CLEAN. After reading HUNDREDS of five star reviews, I gave Native Deodorant a try, and you guys-this stuff is amazingIt smells so amazing (I have vanilla-coconut), and really does leave me feeling fresh and clean. I cannot recommend this stuff enough!

    Clean Makeup

    In our hunt for clean products of the past year, there have been some hits and misses. While I have found some great products in terms of being clean, a lot of them just didn’t deliver. It was great to know I wasn’t putting chemicals on my skin, but that didn’t always help when I didn’t feel GOOD about my skin. If you are looking for SAFE makeup products, this is it. Not only are they 100% safe with over 1500 chemicals that they will not NEVER use, but the quality is outstanding. I have always been a ‘drugstore makeup’ kind of gal. But as I near the big 3-0, I decided I deserve to start investing in my products, as these feel luxurious and like such a treat to use. My favorite is the dew skin tinted moisturizer; it is so perfect for days where you don’t need much but still provides that little bit of coverage!

    The Best Basics

    The more I have gotten into my role as a mama, the more I have found the value in a good basic item. They are perfect for hanging out around the house, but can also be dressed up or worn under a blazer for work. These muscle tanks are EVERYTHING and I am pretty sure I need every color. And these henleys are so cute and flattering which makes them perfect for throwing on with a pair of jean shorts. These tie front tops have been my absolute favorite this year-it is such a cute and laid back trend! The sleeves on this tee hit at such a great and flattering point. My favorite soft spun tanks are so comfortable and perfect for work, play, and everything in between. And it isn’t an every day basic, but this sweater is my new favorite item and I will be wearing it on repeat. It is 100% worth the splurge!

    Have a great weekend everyone!
