Let go of the toxic relationship you have with those too small jeans you keep in your closet. They represent the idea that your body at this size isn’t desirable or worthy. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. ✌🏻
^ those are the words I told myself about the pair of overall shorts I had being holding onto in the hopes that “someday” they’d fit again. Truthfully all they did was serve as a daily gut punch that made me feel like my current body wasn’t good enough.
This summer they hit the donate pile SO fast, and this new pair replaced them. That tiny shift felt like the biggest weight lifted off, even if it wasn’t those extra pounds.
Do you have any “when I’m skinny again” reminders in your closet? It’s time to let ‘em go! ✌🏻
I have got my mind on summer, and summer on my mind. 🏖 Anyone else?!?
We’ve been starting to plan a summer trip, which made me immediately want to start shopping. 😉 Just a few years ago I would dread buying or WEARING a swimsuit. Nothing about it was enjoyable to me. Fast forward to now, and 28 year old me has embraced my body just the way it is and I want ALL the suits! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Below are some of my favorite swim finds! Lots of affordable options because if you’re like me, you can’t have just one!
Keep scrolling for kiddo options!
You didn’t think I would forget the little ones did you?!
Kids swimsuits are actually one of my most favorite things to buy. Each of my littles has multiple, and they all get plenty of use in the summertime! Below are some of my favorites this season, including some that are perfect for sibling matching for SwimZip! There sun protection is next to none.
February means birthday month for me, which has me thinking more and more about my down hill dissent to 30. 🥴 My skin and hair have been much more of a priority for me in my late 20’s, so I’m always on the hunt for ethical beauty products that fit my needs.
I have tried quite a few Derma E brand products in the past, and loved them all! I was excited to branch out from just skin care products and give their hair products a try!
I’ve been using their Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner in place of my normal volumizing set for a few weeks now and I am obsessed with the spearmint tinkle it has! It just feels clean and like it’s plumping my hair. 😉 I have always had fine strands m, and this definitely gives the same boost that my go-to does!
These three gems?! They have been god sends for my hair in the cold temps and dry winter air. I’ve been using the thickening spray every day, and the scalp relief and repair oil on hair wash days. My hair is getting the moisture it definitely needs in a harsh transition to spring.
I spend the majority of my work day in front of screens, so adding the blue light shield spray and serum was a necessity! Both are very light weight and I’m glad to have an extra layer of protection on my skin!
I know I know. You’ve probably seen this quote floating around A LOT the past few days.
Hear me out.
Since, I don’t know FOREVER?! January has been full of new diets, new fads, change. But WHY do we feel the need to overhaul ourselves just because the year is different?
Truthfully? I like who I am! The extra 2020 weight and all! 😜 Do I have areas I would like to improve in? Sure! But just because it’s 2021 does NOT mean I’m going to just suddenly be able to be a morning person or hate pizza and cookies. I honestly don’t see a need to put all the pressure on myself to attempt to be someone I’m not. Who the hell has time for that?!
If you’re feeling the pressure to loose weight, make a big change or take a big leap- we don’t need to rush those things. Take your time. Starting in January doesn’t make those things any easier or more important. ❤️ And damn it, here is to always improving the people we are, NOT trying to completely change them. 👏🏻
