The 2018 is in a full swing and the month of January is behind us. It’s time for the Monthly Favorites post!
In my Monthly Favorites series I share my current obsessions with food products, kitchen items, sometimes even home and beauty. You can see my first post, HERE. If you recently discovered a product and love it – tell me about it in the comment section below! I’d love to see it! You can check out the full list of my favorite products on my Amazon Influencer page, HERE.
You guys, I finally found the most comfortable jeggings ever! I have three kids so my mid section is something I am very conscious about. I was looking for high rise jeans to tuck everything in. Target happened to have 40% off sale on Mossimo clothes and since I absolutely love their leggings ( especially the cropped ones ), I was hopeful that the jeggings will be good too. They are super comfortable, soft and stretchable and definitely exceeded my expectations! It’s the kind of jeggings you will want to wear every day and feel like you are put together. They are great with ankle boots or slip-on shoes to run errands.
2. Yoga with Adriene
My goal for this year, is to practice yoga and be consistent. Right on January 1st, I was browsing YouTube for yoga videos and found the channel Yoga with Adriene. She announced the TRUE 30-day Challenge. I started on the first day and was able to follow through the whole 30 days. I feel great! This is the first time I followed yoga practice for so long. I love how I feel and love having the practice a part of my daily routine. The BEST part of it is that my kids see me setting up for the yoga practice every day, around the same time, and join me! While the younger ones may get distracted and go off to play, my 11 year-old stays with me to finish each episode. I love it!
3. Lavender Essential Oil
I started using essential oils early last year and finally found the brand I like and one that is affordable. It’s called Nature’s Truth. I happen to have the diffuser too and love it! Every day, I set it up with the lavender oil in our bedroom and I do think it helps us sleep better. The oils are available at Target and Amazon.
4. Bullet Journal
January is the beginning of the year and the beginning of a new planner for me. I love fresh clean planners and set them up for the new year. This year, I have two: one for appointments and important events and a bullet journal where I note blog stuff, recipe ideas, practice my hand lettering and write down what we are up to each day. I got this dot grid journal at Michaels and love it. I use the Tombow markers and the Micron pens in it and they do not bleed. The planner is only $5 so it is not a big expense, especially if you use a coupon.
5. Tombow Lettering Set
I started this year with a lot of new projects. Practicing yoga and using a bullet journal but also working on my hand lettering. After a month, I am just now starting to find my style and get more comfortable writing with brush pens. I got this Tombow Lettering Set for Christmas and love it! It has everything you need for hand lettering: a pencil, eraser, two Tombow brush markers, one blending tool, an oil-based marker and two calligraphy pens. You can find a great worksheet set on the Tombow website or Google it and find a ton of free printable worksheets. I recommend buying this set at Michael’s with a coupon.
6. Tombow TwinTone Markers
This is a great set of dual tip markers for planners and bullet journals. It comes in gorgeous pastel colors and they do not bleed through paper.
7. Focaccia Crackers
I am absolutely obsessed with these Focaccia Crackers from Town House. They are addicting! Perfect with cheesy dips and hummus or even salsa. They come in many flavors, but my favorite right now is the Tuscan Cheese. You can buy them in Target or Amazon.
8. Nerdy Nummies baking tools
My oldest daughter is a huge fan or Rosanna and her channel on YouTube. When I saw Rosanna had a new line of baking tools at JoAnn stores, I knew I had to get them. They will be perfect for making Valentine’s Day treats. You may even see them here on the blog! We got the 8-bit heart cookie cutter, the candy mold, the cookie stamp and the super adorable sprinkles!
9. Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning products
I am currently in the process of switching my cleaning products to Mrs. Meyer’s brand. I am obsessed with the Honeysuckle Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner and just ordered the refill. I can’t use the harsh cleaners as they always make me sick. I have been making a natural cleaning solutions for a while now but since finding the Mrs. Meyer’s cleaner, I am obsessed! The scent is fresh and floral and not at all overwhelming. I actually enjoy cleaning! Afterwards, the kitchen and bathroom has the delicate scent of the honeysuckle for hours. I can’t wait to try other scents! I’ve heard the apple cider is amazing too! If you are using any of the Mrs. Meyer’s line products, let me know in the comments below which ones!
You can buy Mrs. Meyer’s products in stores but I order mine on Amazon.
10. Himalayan Salt Lamp
I got this Himalayan Salt Lamp for my Hubby for Christmas and I just love how it looks and the ambiance it creates in the room in the evenings. It’s heavier than I thought it would be and it’s very easy to replace the bulbs inside, which I did not expect. You can buy the Himalayan Salt Lamps in so many places but I got mine on Amazon. No two lamps are the same and I love that!
That’s all of the products that made my Favorites in the month of January. I hope you found some new ones to try and if so, let me know in the comments below! What are you obsessing with this month?
