Things I'm Loving Right Now

Pump It Up, Maggie (mascara by Red Aspen) $23

I have been obsessed with this mascara for over a year. It comes in black and is multi-functioning. It curls, lengthens, volumizes, and conditions your lashes. It contains castor oil, which helps your lashes grow. I also love that it is cruelty-free, phthalate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and vegan. You all know how important it is to me to use safer products on my skin. I use it every day; it helps me feel like I’ve got my life together. I include a link to this amazing mascara. I highly recommend giving this a try.

G. Tox (Himalayan salt scalp scrub shampoo by Goop Beauty) $42

When my gut isn’t in its best health, I get a flaky scalp. It’s nothing to be embarrassed by, but I hate it. I found this amazing scalp scrub that has helped my scalp during these periods. It also works great for cleansing the hair and scalp of product buildup, dirt, and oil. Most women try to avoid washing their hair every day and use dry shampoo and other products. Using this occasionally will keep your hair and scalp looking their best.

Coconut Milk (Thai Kitchen in a carton) $4.99

I have been obsessed with this coconut milk for a couple of years now. I love it because it only has two ingredients and doesn’t separate. It comes in a carton, which makes it great for pouring and storing in the refrigerator. It holds up better during cooking than any other coconut milk I’ve found. It doesn’t break or separate. It works great for soups, creamy sauces, and lattes. I go through multiple cartons of this a week. Any recipe where I use full fat coconut milk, this is what I am using. You can find this at Smith’s, Target, Kroger, Walmart, and Amazon. I’m going to share a link to buy it from Target because they seem to have it in stock most of the time.

Clean Deo (Beautycounter deodorant) $28 initially $18 refills

I have been using safer deodorant for years now and have tried just about every brand on the market. There were a couple of brands I liked but nothing I loved until Beautycounter released theirs. It took them 5 years to perfect the formula, and it was worth the wait. It’s refillable, uses coconut oil and shea butter, has no synthetic fragrances, uses essential oils, non-GMO cornstarch, and baking soda. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave white marks on your clothes. It currently comes in 3 different scents. Beautycounter has a 60-day money-back guarantee, so you can send it back if you don’t love it.

Matcha Barista Edition (Organic by Jade Leaf) $19.95 for 30g

I love coffee, but it doesn’t love me. I cause a lot of inflammation, and it’s not worth drinking regularly. After giving up coffee, I searched for another warm drink I could enjoy in the morning. I found matcha and absolutely love it. I’ve tried so many brands and found Jade Leaf to have the highest quality. I drink it every morning with the coconut milk I talked about in this post. Matcha is high in antioxidants, helps boost brain function, promotes heart health, has less caffeine, and so much more. Use the code “SPOONSNSPICES” for 15% off and free shipping
