Latest Obsessions

{some are affiliate links}

Primal Pit Paste all-natural Lavender Deoderant

Primal Pit Paste All Natural Lavender deodorant

This really should be a post in itself, as I have so much good to say about this deodorant. Primal Pit Paste Lavender Deodorant works! Finally I have found a natural deodorant that does what it says it will do. The consistency is super thick so it creates a nice barrier which helps keep me dry without the dreaded aluminum that regular deodorant use. It contains organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, non-GMO vitamin E and non-aluminum baking soda,  Being a breast cancer survivor, it is very important to me that my deodorant is aluminum free! I love the lavender scent, and because it is lavender essential oil, it is calming. Who knew that a deodorant could be calming?! I’ll take it.

Bubba Envy Vacuum Insulated Tumbler

There is just something about drinking super cold water with a big ol’ straw! I’ve been drinking more water than ever lately thanks to my new Bubba Envy Vacuum Insulated Tumbler. It keeps ice for over hours, has a large, easy to remove lid, fits easily under my ice dispenser and ALL of the ice goes right into the tumbler instead of on my floor!  It has a silicone base pad to keep it from slipping and fits perfectly in my car drink holders. I take it everywhere!


Ongoing Obsessions

Kindle Fire

This ongoing obsession with my Kindle Fire is not letting up. I especially love using it in the evenings when tucked in bed. It’s like my own perfect sized, personal television. Before I indulge in watching Netflix, Amazon Prime shows, or my fav YouTube Channels,   I make sure I read at least a chapter or two of whatever book is on my Kindle. I love using the same device to both read and watch.

Essential Oil Diffuser

Still using it daily and love it! The Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser by AromaSoft is amazing for getting the scent out into larger rooms. It is priced very reasonably and works so well! After buying 4 other diffusers, I did some research, read a ton of reviews, and bought this one. I’m so happy I did!  My most used oils are these 2: Sunshine Spice Synergy Blend for daytime; Good Night Synergy Blend for nighttime.
