Okay I have to share a little about each of these items and why they are special to me!

1. Radha Rosehip Oil

I first bought this oil as a recommendation on an instagram story from Emily Maynard. I am SO glad that I did, because I don’t usually do things like that! This is my favorite product I have ever used on my face. I use it in the mornings and evenings. It is my sole moisturizer. I know everyone’s skin is different, and this may just be the perfect combo for my skin, but I can’t say enough good things about it. I have always had the occasional breakouts but after using this for about 2 years, now I have a pimple probably 2x a year total. And not just that, it keeps my skin feeling fresh and moisturized. The best part is that it is only $14.95! For now at least. I feel like it is a *best kept secret* and I hope it stays that way so the price does not go up. Also, it is organic and completely natural.

2. Charlotte’s Web CBD Oil

As a hemp farmer myself, I have tried my fair share of CBD oils. Most of them work pretty decently. However, Charlotte’s Web works WONDERS every single time. Until I release my own oil (at the beginning of 2020!!) this is the CBD oil I recommend the most. The Charlotte’s Web brand is the family of brothers who discovered the benefits of CBD oil and it is named Charlotte after the little girl with seizures that they set out to help. It is pricey, definitely a splurge, but worth every single penny. I promise you that!

3. Chanel Mademoiselle

This is my favorite perfume, ever! A few Thanksgivings ago, my cousin came to our home adorned in this lovely scent. It smelled so good that my husband, Austin, even noticed (this would never usually happen). I wanted some but didn’t really ask for it… because it is a splurge. However, Austin totally surprised me by getting it for me that Christmas. It lasted me two years and I am ready for some more!

4. Tata Harper Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil

This stuff is the sh*t. You don’t get very much for the $$ but it works. And it smells divine. If I had all the money, I would use Tata Harper everything. They grow the ingredients for their products on their farm in Vermont, which makes me feel like I can trust the brand. Plus, like I said, it works.

5. Carhartt Beanie

Cute, soft, comfortable, warm, can match your toddler… what else could you want out of a hat? It comes in a ton of pretty colors (neutral ones too woo hoo!) and is very inexpensive.

6. Bread Illustrated

My bread bible! If you haven’t noticed, I like to bake bread. This book sets it out so straightforward. The best part is that it also gives photos of the “how” instead of just the finished product. Which to me, is really important in bread baking. I got this book last year for Christmas and it is well worn and used. I love it.

7. It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Conditioner with Keratin

I only ask for / buy this at Christmas. I am usually extremely simple in my hair care routine. I say less is more when it comes to product (and I really love my hair texture more now that I take this approach). However, I love this stuff. I spray it on when I get out of the shower because my hair tangles VERY easily. It makes running a wet brush through damp hair simple. I originally started using this off a product recommendation from Whitney Port (she has the best hair) and that was probably 7+ years ago now.
