LIP BALM – Second to my caramex (which is a Canadian, winter lip requirement) eos is an essential and in my pocket all the time. It’s organic and comes in a handy sphere do you don’t have to dip your finger in to apply. Really it’s just great lip balm, the kids even have their own—or they did, before they probably lost it.
DRY SHAMPOO – I have tried many different brands, I’m sure you have too. Generally I found that most dry shampoos are good because they come in a handy, easy to apply aerosol spray can—that’s also really junky for the environment. But otherwise they aren’t always technically, great. This No Drought dry shampoo from Lush is the best I have tried and even though I have to manually apply (what is the world coming too!?) it’s still my favorite. And it smells like grapefruit, which is my favvvvorite.
ALL NATURAL DEODORANT – I’m bit of a hippie when it comes to deodorant, all natural always (for tons of reasons). The problem with almost all “natural” deodorants is (you probably smelled it) they don’t always work. So when you find a good brand you hold on to it for dear life, this one from Leaves of Trees is so good! I usually keep 2 different brands on rotation (Leaves of Trees is my newest 1 of 2 brands, addition), I find the key to making sure a natural deodorant keeps working is rotating between brands every few days. This new one I’m hooked on, smells amazing (I have the eucalyptus mint) and feels fresh when you apply—also I wear it to hot yoga everyday and come smell me, cause I don’t stink! *My other favorite deodorant but not pictured (my 2 of 2 deodorant brand) is from Lafes.
HUG MY FEET SNEAKERS – Running shoes but for everyday. My Chucks are probably feeling a little left out these days, I am hooked on my New Balance sneakers. The full support and incredible cushion is like a hug for my feet. They feel like my running shoes but look like my casual sneakers, I basically have a hard time taking them off when I come home.
STILL MY FAVORITE MAT – I’ve said it before, actually I’ve said it a lot before. But my Jade mat is my favorite of all the mats I have had the pleasure of testing out. It’s grippy, thick but not heavy and oddly enough I love the natural rubber smell—it gets 5 stars from me. And clearly I love black, I like to practice life and yoga like a ninja, what can I say.
It’s been a while since I shared a few of our favorite things, I was about to text my sister and friend about this stuff and instead jumped for the post—this series is for real, my favorite things.
