How often do you actually stop and think, throughout your day, about the things you absolutely would not be able to get through your day without?
I have way more than can count, however I wanted to share the main ingredients to my day that I just absolutely could not live without.
I mean hello, DUH COFFEE! It’s how I start my day!! (real talk though, I do always make sure to drink an entire mason jar full of water before I dive into my morning coffee) Without coffee I don’t think I could survive one day. On the days that for WHATEVER reason I cannot get my hands on it, I notice it drastically. Which honestly, can’t be too healthy? Oops!
2. THE GYM
I’m sorry for being one of those girls, BUT it’s true people. I can’t live without the gym. When I first moved to Georgia, away from Lifetime Fitness, the actual holy GRAIL of health clubs, I had the MOST difficult time finding a gym that fit me, and that I loved. The gym is my happy place. It’s my stress relief, and my grounder.
3. MY SISTER
My sister is my absolute BEST friend. If you know us, and you’ve seen us together, then you totally know. Sisters are just an absolute blessing and moving 1,000 miles away from her did absolutely nothing to our relationship. While I do miss our sleepovers, her coming into my room at night just to talk for hours, stealing each other’s clothes and hiding them so we wouldn’t know that we took them, and most importantly doing absolutely everything and anything together, we still talk on the phone DAILY and are always updated on each other’s lives.
SKIN. IS. IN. LADIES!! Lets get in the habit of treating it like royalty shall we?? Especially right now, in the midst of summer, when the rays are PIPING down on our skin! Finding a good sunscreen that you can wear daily is a trial and error process, but I promise you that your skin will THANK you in the future for wearing this daily protection. (And no ladies, the SPF in your foundation DOES NOT count!)
I mean, this one is a given…look at my blog name. LOL But seriously, I am a fiend about having something on my lips at absolutely all times, no exceptions. My boyfriend, however, is not so much a fan of this need of mine, because I get it EVERYWHERE, however, I just have to. My vanity drawer is full to capacity with different shades, colors, brands, and styles of lipgloss. I swear I don’t have a problem…
6. MY PHONE
I actually cried when I had to trade in my old phone and I lost all of my pictures, conversations, and just about everything else you can lose when you get a new phone that won’t transfer all of your old items. I like genuinely am attached to it and I KNOW that’s not healthy, but it’s true. *shrugs*
I KID you not I could not live without this amazing piece of jade that works WONDERS on your skin!! Every morning when I wake up it’s the FIRST thing that I do. It helps with lymphatic drainage, de-puffing, coloration, and SO much more! I actually have an entire blog post on everything Jade rolling you can find here! It is just so relaxing to roll out your face every morning. You can even leave it in the fridge overnight for an insane sensation in the morning and for extra de-puffing of the face.
Ok, I know, weird right? But like think about how awesome floss is and all of the HEALTH benefits it also comes with!! I have been obsessed with my teeth ever since wearing braces for three out of the four years that I was in high school. Flossing is honestly so therapeutic to me, and it just makes you feel ten times cleaner. I know that I get this obsession from my mom, who would always keep floss in her purse, AND her car; she would literally floss her teeth the second we got in the car after eating out somewhere.
I am a true believer that when your eyelashes look good, you don’t need anything else on your face. I used to get lash extensions, but honestly they’re just not for me. I love a good false lash, but I also love a good natural lash with some mascara swiped over them. Since I love to change it up so much, I saw no need in continuing the extensions when I have long, natural lashes that I could switch up with different mascaras myself! My current fave is the L’Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black.
