This yr’s weblog vacation giveaway is already wanting fairly epic, I’ve gotta say…
Trend + Magnificence:
Let or not it’s identified that our tiny child has an official skincare routine????? We wandered into Ulta as a result of she was in search of face wash and moisturizer, and sadly the Beautycounter Coco cleanser wasn’t an excellent match for her pores and skin.
I needed to get her one thing mild with not-so-sketchy substances, and ultimately, we selected this face wash (which I’ve used up to now and it’s good for delicate pores and skin like ours) and this moisturizer. The moisturizer is hydrating with out being greasy, and the combo of the 2 has been an excellent start line for her skincare routine.

Health, well being, + good eats:
Should you haven’t tried this ice cream from Entire Meals, get.on.it. We had a lil ceremonial dinner final weekend and dessert with pizookie with all the toppings (4 kinds of ice cream, cherries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, the children went loopy for it). I received this ice cream, which as chocolate chips and peanut butter swirl. Normally peanut butter ice cream is disappointing as a result of the flavour is muted and will get misplaced. This had enormous ribbons of salty peanut buttery goodness that set my soul free. I’m not an enormous ice cream individual – give me cake or cookies any day – however I’ll positively be getting this one once more.
New blue gentle blockers! My pals at Oura despatched me these glasses as a collaboration with Ra Optics. They’re VERY crimson lol however I discover a distinction in sleep latency (the period of time it takes to go to sleep), once I put on these after sunset. Blue gentle can inhibit our physique’s means to supply melatonin, which helps us wind down and go to sleep. We’re topic to blue gentle by means of lightbulbs and screens, and by blocking it out, it may possibly assist to reset circadian rhythm. The children assume I’m a wacko once I’m sporting these, however I feel they’re tremendous cool.
