With 2017 over in like 2 days, I thought I would end it by starting something new. Creating a list with 5 of my favourite things for each month. So here are my "Five Faves" for December 2017, they include a "gadget", food, recommended listening, beauty, and a quote. Enjoy!
Gadget: I'm loving my acupressure mat. I have been insanely sore and stiff in my shoulders and neck, as that's where I carry most of my stress. This thing has just helped so much to relieve some of the pain and I seriously recommend everyone try it!
Food: Lara Bars have been my latest snack obsession. When my blood sugar gets low no one is safe...I turn into an absolute monster. I always keep one with me for this reason, or for when a sweet craving hits. Play a game and time yourself while you try to find the ingredient list. They are so minimal that it's easy to miss (some bars having 2-3 ingredients!)
Listening: I'm a podcast junkie, seriously...one of my faves is The Entrepology Podcast with Dr. Meghan Walker. A must-listen is "How to Spend Money Guilt-Free and Improve Your Financial Relationships" with Shannon Simmons.
I love this because your financial situation affects your mental wellbeing and everyone can learn a thing or two (or ten if you're me) in this area. I found it super informative and empowering, lots of great takeaways. Go look this one up ASAP!
Beauty: LOVEFRESH natural deodorant in Moroccan Rose. I bought mine in August and have been using it almost everyday since and it's December. This stuff works and it lasts. It can be a bit hard to apply as it’s not very creamy so best to apply it to warm skin after a shower. Bonus: they are a Toronto-based company and I heart supporting local.
Words: I love a quote that can help change the way you view a situation.
Let me know if any of my faves are things you're also loving!
