Things I’m Loving Right Now

Tv- Into the Badlands

My husband and I have recently started watching Into the badlands. Honestly we are kinda obsessed with it. We watched all of season 1 and got caught up with season 2 which is still airing right now on Sundays. Think of it as a modern Game of Thrones, which we can not wait for it to come back.

Youtube- Channels I’m watching

Lately I have been back into into watching YouTube videos, especially Tati, Gabby, Bunny, Sara Nourse and Jenna Marbles.  Yes I know, what a diverse mix of people. These are people that i have been watching for years now. I started watching Tati about 5-6 and she’s been on YouTube for 7. Im really liking the direction she’s taking her channel.

I am also thinking of starting my own channel soon. Right now I’m looking for some good lighting that is budget friendly.

Affirmation cards

The Miracle Now affirmation cards are ones that I have been reaching for quite a lot lately. I just love the sayings and colors that are on the cards. When I first bought them I wasn’t to sure about them but now I’m pretty happy I did.

My Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Happy planner

I love Happy Planner. I can’t wait to use my 2 new planners in July. Right now I’m using a mini for home/budget, two classics for wellness/memory planning and social media. A few weeks ago I bought some pineapple papers clips and stickers that go great with the new pineapple mini that I will be starting next month.

Books

Some of the books I’m reading at the moment are Big Magic, Love your Lady Landscape, Total Cat Mojo, Lunar Abundance and Detox Judgment. I bounce around alot depending on my mood.

7 Things I’m Loving Right Now

 

1. New Hair Color

What more can I say? I love this color. I used Cosmic Sunshine, Porange, Sunset Orange and Electric Paradise. All from Arctic Fox. I just mixed until I liked the color.  I plan on putting Electric Paradise over it once it starts fading badly.

2. New Furniture

Earlier this week we got our taxes, we went and bought a new coffee table, sofa & loveseat  and kitchen table and chairs set. The couches are so comfy and I love how the kitchen table and chairs look in our kitchen.

3. Candles

I recently went to Bath and Bodyworks  and picked up two new of single wick candles YUZU with Sugared Lemons, Mandarin, Dewy Waterfruits & LILAC with Lilac, Peony Petals, Lush Green Grass. Smells so good. I need to get more.

4. Shampoo and Conditioner

Love Beauty and Planet‘s Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower will make you think you are on a tropical island. No Joke. I did not want to leave the shower. Can you make a candle please?  They may not be organic but they do claim they  are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben- and sulfate-free, and enriched with organic coconut oil in place of silicones.

5. Tv

My husband  and I have started watching a show together called The Expanse. This is what it’s about.

“Hundreds of years in the future, things are different than what we are used to after humans have colonized the solar system and Mars has become an independent military power. Rising tensions between Earth and Mars have put them on the brink of war. Against this backdrop, a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain come together to investigate the case of a missing young woman. The investigation leads them on a race across the solar system that could expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.” 

So far its really good and we are already finishing season 2 and I think season 3 will be out sometime soon.

6. Weather

Here in Wisconsin the weather can change multiple times in one day. Lately we have some nice sunny days that are in the 30-40’s with SUN!! On Tuesday we had 50 degree weather and we had the windows opened for a short time for some fresh air. It was so nice.

7. New Shop Items

I am super excited about the new items that will be available  in my etsy. I hope to have them added with in the week. I will have readings and digital prints. I might even have some artwork added as well. Jewelry will be added more towards the end of the month going into April.

 

 

5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

I hope everyone is had a great week, I know I did. We had some warmish weather here in south eastern Wisconsin, meaning 30-50 degrees with rain.  Which was so nice compared to the 20 or colder temperatures.  But besides the weather here are the 5 things im loving right now.

1. Essential Oil Sleep Blend

I have been loving my essential oil sleep blend that I made a awhile back. In this blend I have orange, lavender, pomegranate and chamomile. Lavender is a great sleep aid orange can help ease anxiety, pomegranate is one of my favorite smells and chamomile for calming.  I love how orange and lavender smell together, it is one of my favorite mixes.

2. Sea Salt Spray

I found this sea salt spray called Salty Dog by EVO on amazon and heard some people on Instagram really liking it. So I thought i would give it a try. So far I really like it. It doesn’t leave your hair dry feeling, as long you don’t put too much in and it smells good. I’m not even sure how to describe it.

3. The Ultimate Guide

The ultimate guide to tarot by Liz dean. This is a great book for reading tarot, I find it very useful and helpful. There are a few tarot spreads and tips to help you read tarot better.

4. The Path

Last week I finished up Season 2 of The 12 monkeys on Hulu and now I started season 3 of The Path, also on Hulu. It was a show I wasn’t sure that I would like at first, but after a few episodes I was so into it. I just find this show to be so fascinating. Right now I’m on episode 3 or 4 and it’s really good so far.

5. Heel Genius by Soap and Glory

Heel Genius by Soap and Glory is great! I use this quite often during the week for my feet. I put this on at bedtime and let it do its magic. By morning my feet feel so soft. Sometimes I will use it on my hands too if they are super dry.things im loving right now

7 Things I’m Loving Right Now

I really love sharing with you all the things I’m loving every week. There are times where I want to write about an item or a book or show but I don’t feel like it would be long enough for even a blog post.

1. Carbon coco

This stuff is amazing. It’s a Natural Teeth Whitener. It naturally whitens your teeth, polishes, strengthens enamel and detoxifies your mouth without any chemicals. I use this a couple of times a week right before I brush my teeth at bedtime.

2. Formula 10.0.6. Get Your Glow On Peel Mask

It smells amazing. If this was a candle I would burn it 24/7. It makes my face so soft and looks great after using.IMG_2750

3. Book

One of the books that I am reading at the moment is the The Gender Lies by  Bella Forrest, it’s the 3rd in the series. Its kinda mix of  The Hunger Games and Divergent if you are a fan of either.

4. Tv Show

One show that I’m loving is The 12 monkeys, it’s on Hulu. Right now Im finishing up season 2. I don’t think season 3 is out yet on Hulu. I heard that the 12 monkeys has been signed up for a 4 season.

5. Assassin creed origins

I love the Assassin Creed series, its one of my favorite series ever. The story line for each game is just awesome. I think out of all of them Black flag, Unity and Origins are my favorites but I love them all. We bought Origins back in december as my husbands christmas gift but it is really for both of us. I’m so glad they came out with a egyptian theme, since I love anything egyption.

6. Gym membership

We finally signed back up to the gym last month. It feels so great to get back at the gym after not going for 2 years.

7. Adobe photography plan with Lightroom –

After months of going back and forth about signing up for photoshop plan, I finally did. I am so glad I did too. I have tried so many other programs and none of them are like photoshop.
