5 things I am loving right now


It’s Friday Five and today I’m sharing 5 things I am absolutely LOVING right now. If you click on the links that take you Amazon I want you to know I do get a very marginal referral rate, which helps me cover some of the costs on the blog. That said, I’m not asked or paid to promote any of these products and everything I tell you is 100% my opinion. Okay…

5 things I am absolutely LOVING right now!!

If you ask me, protein powder can be chalky and have a weird taste and believe me, I’ve tried a lot of them. So I’m happy to introduce you to Arbonne. It tastes so fresh and clean and I use it almost every single day in my lunch shake. My favorite is to combine 1 banana, a tall glass of ice with water, a splash of almond milk, a heaping scoop of protein powder and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. You can check it out and order it on Amazon OR through my amazing friend Lora Baier. She is extremely knowledgable about the product and can get you hooked up with any specials or discounts they have going on right now. It’s my #1 favorite and she’s pretty amazing too! Her email is:

My friend Annie gave me this the other day because she’s awesome, and needless to say I’m addicted. It’s amazing. It’s even more amazing if you use a little sugar scrub on your lips first and then apply. Oh my heavens. I’m sad to say it’s not as easy to purchase as other products but you can find a retailer near you through their website. Or if you’re local you can contact my friend Annie at simplicity esthetics and she can hook you up. I bet she might even ship it to you if you ask nicely!

Just this past weekend I enjoyed the sweetness of sunshine and quiet time on my back patio, and wow. I was hooked from the very first page. I know this study will inspire, reveal and define some things in my life, and in this season, and so I’m grateful for the role Beth Moore has played in my life and in my faith. She truly is a dear woman to my heart and I am thankful for her obedience to teach women like me to become followers after God’s heart. You can purchase the leader study with all the DVDs if you plan to do it in a group, or get just the workbook right here.

I’ve never shied away from telling the whole truth and I’ve shared my struggle and thoughts on depression. The first time noticed it was postpartum but in all honesty it probably always had a foot in the door. It’s in my generational line. I’ve gone through seasons that were hard and seasons that are great and I don’t ever want to talk cheaply about something so serious. But I recently tried this product and I really like it. I’ll be honest I was sent the product to try for free and I was skeptical. But after a month I noticed getting up in the morning was easier. I felt lighter. The minor irritations of life didn’t bother me as much. And my brain wasn’t fighting so often with my heart! Essentially it’s a vitamin supplement. It has no preservatives or chemicals and for me, it works! As someone who has struggled in the past I’m willing to try something – especially a VITAMIN! – if it can help. Truth is, I’ve already placed my order for next month! Find it here on Amazon.

So I think I saved the best for last…but I’ll let you decide. My friend Rebecca started a clothing company with one dream: to inspire people to be their own authentic self, and not be afraid. Of ANYTHING! For years, she worked her day job so she could work her dream job, until she decided to quit the day job and fully commit to following her dream. And you know what? She’s doing it!! Amazingly, I might add. I’m so proud of her and so excited to introduce you to her & share her awesome happy apparel company with you. I own at least a dozen of her designs and love every single piece. I’m convinced you will too. Get this: she’s offering a 15% discount for us from May 8-29! A perfect last minute gift for you for Mother’s Day or amazing graduation gifts. Enter: graceuncommon15 at the checkout and make your happy purchase even happier!
