Holy Grail Health Favorites of 2018

Too continue my Holy Grails of 2018 I made list of health favorites that I really enjoyed and repurchased thought out 2018. You can read about my Holy Grail Skin Care Favorites,Holy Grail Home Favorites and Hair and Makeup Favorites.

Fitbit Flex 2 – For the longest time I wanted a fitbit. I use my Fitbit Flex 2 to track my steps, sleep, water, period, and fitness. I love tracking all of that on my fitbit. For the most point I reach my 10,000 steps 5 days out of the week. I just find it neat to see how many steps I take in a day. Or how much water I’m drinking for the day. Sleep is one that I need to work on more and I think Im getting better with it. Seems I don’t get enough sleep at night or I’m too restless. In time I would like to up date to one that tracks heart rate for when I work out. *Its seems the flex 2 is no longer offered on the Fitbit website and has been replaced with another model.*

Tone it up– I have tired so many fitness apps but I always go back to the Tone It Up. They have so many type of work outs to pick from. It has daily workouts, on demand workouts and studio classes that you sign up at a certain time and  can chat with before and after the class.  Every week they send emails of workouts for that week. This app does have a monthly fee of I believe $12.

Diva Cup– I started using one in March or April of last year and it has been life changing! I absolutely love mine. I hardly feel the cup, once I trimmed the stem and it settles in. Honesty I forget sometime I have my period. The best part, absolutely no leaks. I have also saved so much money since buying and switching from tampons and liners to my diva cup. You also save on creating zero waste for the environment, since it is reusable.

Zenni Optical– They offer so many affordable glasses its unreal. We no longer buy our glasses in store. I have 6 pairs of glasses from them. I don’t want to know how much I would spent in a store or at a Dr’s office for glasses between my husband and myself. Im so glad I found them. They also accept FSA/HSA.

January Favorites

I cant believe January went by already! Hope everyone is is having a good start to the new year! We are just going to jump right in to my favorites for the month of January.

Pacifica Glow Greens Beauty Powder

So pacifica came out with beauty powders, one for sleep, skin, probiotics and stress. Im not going to lie, when I saw that they were coming out with supplements, I was so happy and wanted to try the one for the skin. I am finishing up my 1st bottle of the Glow Greens and will be opening the a second one in a few days. You don’t even know your drinking greens! It has a lemon flavor and is so good. I drink this every night with my vitamins.

UpSpring Reproductive Support

For a while now I have been battling with some pretty bad hormonal cystic acne along my jaw and chin. No amount of exfoliating or deep cleaners has completely cleared it up even with my spin brush. I didn’t want to be on medication, so I found an alternative solution. So far, I’m on my third bottle and my skin has not had a flare up once. It’s so clear and good looking its unreal. Mind blowing, honestly! I do still get the occasional, what I call pop ups (tiny/small zits that are gone by the next day) but nothing like before where it would be weeks going into months where I would have a cystic zit.

I mainly bought UpSpring Reproductive Support solely to try on the hormonal acne but it also has added benefits for reproductive health, and it also helps with female fertility and  libido. Shatavari helps with hormonal balance, Black cohosh supports increased fertility and pregnancy and Maca with  libido.

Overtone Vibrent Purple

Well I went back to purple hair and used the overtone vibrant purple deep conditioner. It smells so good and minty. I always go back purple, there is just something about purple hair, its my favorite.

Static Nails Glue

Im not sure what Staic Nails does with their nail glue but it is amazing. Their nails are great also but that nail glue is the shit. I also have use the glue with other glue on nail brands and it works just as well. Im talking, these nails aren’t going anywhere for 3 weeks. And did I mention the glue is only $4! I have tried other glues and after a day or two the nails pop off. Right now im trying to use up some of my other glue on nails from kiss and other brands that I have bought in the past before I buy more from Static Nails. But I will be ordering more from them for sure.

New Glasses

So I ordered some more glasses from Zenni Optical. I couldn’t decide between the the black or tortoiseshell cat eyes so I got both, and I’m so glad I did. I love the clear frames also! Not sure which ones are my favorites.

Thanks for reading!

My New Glasses From Zenni Optical

Recently this pass month I went and had my yearly eye appointment. My dr made me go since I am diabetic and was due for one anyways. So I had to get the dilated eye exam done to make sure there are no signs of Diabetic Retinopathy. Which I am happy to say  my eyes are healthy and I have no signs at all.  He did say my astigmatism did improve and that my eye sight did change slightly but he wasnt concerned at all. He also gave me my prescription for glass some samples of contacts to try out and to come back in a few weeks to make sure they fit right on my eyes.

Normally after I have an eye exam I would pick out a pair of glasses right there but decided that I want to order a pair online. The last time I bought glasses, which was last June/July I ended up paying over $150 just for one pair, I picked out the cheapest frames and  my prescription isn’t even that bad.

I had heard of a few sites, Zenni Opitcal and Eye Buy Direct where both having clearance sales. Zenni Optical had more styles and colors that I was looking for, so I went with them. The ordering process was so easy, I created an account and entered in my prescription information and save it, so it’s always there and I don’t ever have to retype it in again.  The lens already come with  free Anti-Scratch Coating and UV Protection Coating and you also get a hard case and a cleaning cloth with each pair.

But I picked out two frames and added a couple of extras to both pairs like Super Hydrophobic (water resistant)  and High-Index UV+ Blue Blocker that also includes Standard Anti-Reflective Coating.  I did have to measure my Pupillary Distance myself, which is between the center of one pupil to the center of the other. But they offer a print out so you can do it your self or with a friend. 

Roughly for both pairs I only paid $40, so after tax and shipping it was $86.  I will take that any day. In the past I never would get any “extras” beside insurance and the anti scratch coating. I paid standard shipping, which was 14-21 days, it took 14 days for me to get them.

I love them both. The first pair is oversized black square frames with a slight red color on inside. I picked these as my everyday pair.  At when I first tried them on I wasnt to sure about them since I normally pick smaller frames for my face, so it has been an adjustment to get use to. Everyone so far has told me they like them on me, and they are now starting to grow back on to me. But I do have 30 days from the date I have received them to decide if I want to keep them or return them for another pair. I don’t think I will but I like the option.

My second pair is a Brown Vintage-Inspired Oval Frames with a solid vanilla color that turns to a swirling pattern. These were going to by my “Fun” pair but these might just be my everyday pair now. I havent decided yet.

I plan on ordering in the future from Zenni Optical again, my husband will be needing a second or third pair of glasses soon and I still have my eye on a few pairs from Eye Buy Direct as well. The only minor con in my mind is that you can’t try them on when ordering online but you can upload a picture of your self so you can get some kind of idea if the frames will work for your face. Which does help a bit.
