I asked my followers and reachers to compile a list of products they use and am posting them here. Now please keep in mind these are not products I have tired nor use, but  my readers recommend. One item I am looking forward to grabbing is this particular cookbook written by an avid champion boss babe and marathon runner, Shalane Flanagan and another healthy diva and Chef, Chef Elyse.

Other items that made the list include but are not limited to the following. 

Crystal mineral deoderant roll on

Desert Essence Toothpaste in Coolmint ; however my favorite is Himalaya brand in Pomegranate but flavor is really mint.

Hello toothpaste: Never tried but recommended 

Soapwalla deoderant: Never tried but recommended 

Beautycounter brand products: Tried and highly recommend

Himalaya brand products and toothpaste: 

Stay tuned as this list with continue with more to come. 




I get asked all the the time about products that I would recommend to others, so I figured why not put an article together of some of my favorite things and some of the companies I support.

Now to list all the companies that I support may be nearly impossible, but for starters here are some of the things that I like and why I like them.

As I am always discovering new brand and things to buy I thought it would deem appropriate to share with my readers.

A new brand and company I recently discovered was more on accident. I was looking for a new razor and happened to stumble upon the brand Preserve. They use recycled materials and also happen to to be a B corporation.  What an interesting an intriguing story that abounded from the Preserve razor and recycled plastics company. I will certainly support a fellow New Englander on their mission to make the world a better place. To read more about their story you can find it here.

Ever want to bake but really not in the mood to bake something from scratch. Well, I have found the perfect set of allergen friendly baking mixes and goods that money can afford to buy. Simple Mills is a brand started by a young female entrepreneur when she realized there were so many mixes on the market, but most had ingredients she or her friends could not consume. Here you have it Simple Mills baking mixes, frostings, cookies, crackers and more. I recently bought their pumpking spice muffin mix and it was just what I was looknig for without the fuss. In about 40 minutes I had a beautiful and tasty muffin with a lot less sugar than most baked mixes. The beat part, is the mixes are gluten and dairy free. 

Next up is Siete foods brands, whom I have wrote about a few times already. What I like about this brand is that they are clean, use cleaner oils, in this case avocado oil is used in their snacking chips instead of some other oils like that of sunflower oil that are not as healthy. 

Another brand that is more common now and seen in most stores is So delicious. So delicous makes a wide array of dairy free goodies to include the following. So delicous makes coconut milk, dairy free ice cream, a delicous dairy free yogurt. All their products are dairy free and great to add to a smoothie, or just eat alone and can be found in a wide variety of grocery stores around.



Think by going to a doctors office or esteticians office to get a chemical peel is the way to go nowadays? Well, stop where you started as the brand that is all about safer beauty has come out with a product that will leave you mind blown.

The brand that is now five years old and based in Santa Monica, California is changing the face of beauty and you should be paying attention now, if not you will certainly hear about them later.

Beautycounter is a safer skincare brand and this month they have partnered up with the not for profit organization, Stand up to Cancer.  This month those consultants who choose are able to host get togethers and help raise funds for the research based organization who is working on the forefront to raise money and find research for a cure for cancer.  I personaly was part of a public service announcement many years ago to raise awareness of the organization so it is humbling to partner with this organization to help raise funds.

 Beautycounter recently released a face peel that includes 15 botanicals and leaves out the chemicals, so it is safe to use three to four times a week.  Having been able to use this product for the last few weeks I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like it.  It certainly helps with fine lines and wrinkles and makes your skin feel like you just had a facial.  Why is this peel different than that of other peels?


The peel is "formulated with 15 botanically-derived acids, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots without irritation or over-drying.


Glycolic, lactic, and malic acids clear away dull surface skin cells, while hyaluronic acid and essential fatty acids soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion."  The peel is formulated without any PEG's, synthetic fragrances, and formaldehyde-based preservatives that can be found in chemical peels.  The resurfacing and soothing acids that replenish, hydrate and protect skin.  Ditch the chemical peels and try Beautycounter's new overnight resurfacing peel. Your skin will thank you.
