Aveda Blue Oil

aveda blue oil

Allergy season.

It will ruin your social life and your productivity, not to mention your workout routine, if you are an allergy sufferer.

We have tried EVERYTHING. Local honey, bee pollen, essential oils, over the counters meds, prescriptions, juices, not drinking wine (the worst)! Temporary relief, if any.

Then, in a grand twist of fate we discovered Aveda’s Blue Oil.

Jenna here. Last week I had my hair done. As my hair was being washed, my hairdresser rubbed this gloriously-scented oil on my temples and I could immediately BREATHE. Sweet relief!

For 3 days I had been so puffy, with watering eyes and an itch in my throat. I looked like Will Smith in that scene from “Hitch” and everyone probably thought I was crying all day from how red my eyes were.

I asked Diana, my hairdresser, what in the hell she just put on my head and made sure she threw it in my bag! It’s $18 and worth every damn penny. Plus, it comes in a convenient rollerball so you can throw it in your purse and take it everywhere! Even if you don’t suffer from allergies, it’s a great stress relief and calming oil as well.

Go. Get it. Now!

Here’s the link!

Happy Breathing, Babes!

Skellie2

Hope you all had a beautiful week and took our Mantra Monday to heart.

We had a killer week and went for a few things that turned out in our favor so that’s super exciting!

We’ve both finally gotten to a point where we think,

“WHY NOT? What’s the worst that can happen?”

and it’s really working for us! Like we always say, positive out and it will all come back to you. The Universe is a cool chick like that

So now that we’ve gotten a few things that we want out of life, we are gonna keep on keepin’ on!

Friday Fave: Not Soap Radio

BathGroup-new975

So, has everyone heard of Birchbox?

If not, it’s this wonderful service that sends you samples of skincare, haircare and makeup once a month for $10.

If you are anything like us, it’s like getting a present once a month and it’s awesome. Well, through this amazing service, we discovered Not Soap Radio and the “When You Need Good Things to Happen-Yesterday” Body Wash. No joke, this stuff works. Jenna got a new job after using it, so we are convinced.

Friday Faves: The Trendy Sparrow

FullSizeRender-2

OKAY(!!!!!).

Crying so many tears right now because we miss Gossip Girl SO MUCH. What was better than getting lost in a world of drama with bangin’ guys and gorgeous girls?!

Nate Archibald?? UMMM.

Chantelly covered her bedroom door in Chace Crawford because seeing him once a week just wasn’t enough.

FullSizeRender-4

FullSizeRender-3

The Trendy Sparrow totally hit the spot with her shop and we are a little too obsessed with these coffee mugs! We want them all!

And how cute is this shirt?! WWBD?!

FullSizeRender-5

If only they’d bring GG back, our hearts would be hole again. Until then, I guess we’ll survive  by re-watching the entire series on Netflix. Over and over and over and over again.

Seriously though, you babes need to check Lindzi’s shop out on Etsy and treat yo’self to something because it’s FriYAY and why the eff not?!

Friday Faves: The Honest Company

The-Honest-Company-Logo

Let’s get honest about Honest Company…

They freakin’ rock! We are so excited to see more and more companies coming out with safer, healthier alternatives for everyone.

You all know who Jessican Alba is, yes?? Well, she is one of the co-founders of The Honest Company! When she first became a mother, she was super frustrated with what was out there on the market and joined forces with a gentleman named Christopher, to create these safe, non-toxic products.

{Photo Cred: The Fast Company}

Not only do they develop safe products, but they also give back to the community whether it be through sponsorships or charity events. Read more here!

The Honest Company has taken everyday necessities and made them safer for children and their families. They offer cleaning products, vitamins, baby wipes, diapers, sunscreen, baby swaddles, etc. etc. etc.

Right now they are offering a free trial but only for a limited time. Def worth checking out! Just be sure to cancel if you don’t want to spend the money or don’t like the products as they enroll you in a monthly service when you sign up.

If you aren’t ready to commit to anything monthly, you can purchase item by item on their
website or even find them at Target!

On Tuesday, we posted about our number one healthy and beauty tip and we are loving their sunscreen! Anything to keep more chemicals away!

Has anyone ever used their products? Thoughts? Recommendations for those who have not?

Friday Fave: VitaFrute Cocktails

VitaFrute

Anyone else have an extremely long week and need a drink like yesterday?! It’s definitely been an extremely long week for the two of us! So much going on! That’s why we were over the moon ecstatic when we received these VitaFrute cocktails from Veev!

They are seriously soooo good! And can we just talk about the fact that they are ORGANIC (YES, we said organic!) “skinny cocktails”?! They are just 125 calories per serving and taste amazing. All you need is a little ice!

VitaFrute3

They come in quite a few different flavors: Coconut Colada, Cosmopolitan, Margarita and Lemonade.

Chantelly’s favee is the Coconut Colada (because she is obsessed with all things coconut) made with coconut water, organic pineapple juice and Veev Spirit. Umm, YUMM!

Jenna is more of the Margarita girl! This one is made Veev Spirit, Tequila, Lemon, Lime and agave!

VitaFrute isn’t out everywhere but you can you this handy finder on their website to find some near you!

VitaFrute2

You can also find a list of yummy punch recipes to make with the VitaFrute Cocktails! That’s the perfect excuse to throw a dinner party this weekend!

Happy FriYAY, Babes! Have a gorgeous weekend!

New Fave: Danielle Guizio Duffel Bag

FullSizeRender (31)

Y’all know how much we love Nasty Gal, right? Well today our Friday Fave gives us ANOTHER reason to love Nasty Gal because of their addition of Danielle Guizio’s hilarious and truthful duffel bag.

FullSizeRender (31)

And since the bag says exactly how we feel when we aren’t in the comfort of our own home, we decided to give you some tips on how to stick with your routine when you aren’t at home.

Keeping a toiletry bag stocked and ready for spontaneous overnight trips is a great way to stick to your routine.

Here’s what you need:

1) Toothbrush/toothpaste: Not everyone will remember the toothpaste and none of us want to wake up with nasty breath! Keep an extra toothbrush in your toiletry bag so you don’t forget or leave behind the good one you keep at home.

2) Makeup wipes: A MUST! Late nights can make us lazy and the last thing you want is to leave your makeup on overnight. This can lead to major breakouts and clogged pores! Plus, you’ll wake up looking like a clown.

drunk makeup
Yep. That’s what it looks like.

3) Tampons: Oh dear heavens. Surprise visits from Aunt Flow with no equipment is terrifying. Always, ALWAYS, keep tampons on hand.

4) Tums/Motrin/Rolaids: Because nothing is worse than being sick and uncomfortable when you aren’t in the comfort of your own home.

5) A Good Book or a Notebook: If you have to be left alone, or the power goes out or you just need some quiet time, make sure you have something to keep your brain from going crazy. Perfect time to read or write!

mindy kaling book
We love Mindy Kaling! This book is hilarious!

6) Extra underwear: You can wear the same jeans for a few days, but for the sake of your lady parts…bring extra panties!

7) Swimsuit: You don’t want to be the only one who can’t go swimming. And it will prevent that awkward “Just go in your underwear” comment.

8) Moisturizer with Sunscreen: Dry skin is unbearable and so are sunburns! Even in cold weather, sunburns can still happen, so it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Will-Ferrell-sunburn
Ouch!

 

9) Deodorant: No explanation needed.

10) Trail Mix: Seriously. How many times have you been on someone else’s schedule and STARVING. Pack a homemade trail mix ( we like almonds, dark chocolate and dried cranberries) to hold you over if you find yourself without food or just needing a quick pick me up.

Whatever your weekend or spontaneity brings, make sure you are prepared but also have a good attitude regardless of what happens. Not having your essentials shouldn’t be cause for a bad time, but hopefully this list will help you remember everything. Make the most of it and have fun! Enjoy your weekend, babes!

Friday Fave: Sleep Pillow App!

FullSizeRender (30)

Hello and Happy Friday, Babes!

We all have trouble sleeping sometimes, right? All the lights are off and all you can hear is the sound of your thoughts or maybe your neighbors if your walls are thin! Well, we have discovered something that replaces those sounds and helps get us relaxed for a good night’s rest.

The Sleep Pillow App!

IMG_6824

 

This app is amazing. It has a variety of white noise sounds for you to choose from. Anything from the ocean, forest, rain and even lullaby sounds! Whatever turns your brain off! Try them all for a night and see which one works for you.

IMG_6822

 

One of our faves is the “spa” sound because who doesn’t feel relaxed at a spa? Unless you get one of those crazy massage therapists that crawls onto your back and starts chopping you! Seriously. We can fall asleep in like 15 minutes with this sound playing.

IMG_6823

You can even make your own mixes, set an alarm clock and there’s a timer! The timer is great because if you don’t remember the sound stopping, you know about how long it took you to fall asleep! It’s only $1.99 in the App Store and there is a free version with a few sounds to choose from. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Sweet dreams, babes & enjoy your weekend!
