The Link Up: CBD, Our Favorite Shoes and a Good Happy Cry
Hi everyone. Let’s have a check-in. How’s it going? How do you feel January went? What are the new February goals? What’s the hot gossip? Tell me everything. We have a BIG February ahead and are pretty excited to jump in. Hope you’re ready. 🙂 Did you guys see the great return of the Craigslist posts on Friday? You are asking and we are delivering (well trying to, at least). Right now, I am at the mountain house with my LA best friends and frankly, I might never come back. Kidding, I guess I have to for now with all the projects we have in the works, but in the summer, all bets are off. Hope you all got a little self-care in this weekend even if it was only a few minutes worth. Now let’s get into some very exciting things my team and I found or were talking about this past week.
The Mountain House construction is DONE. Time to start hiking! These Timberland Jayne Convenience Hiking Boots are very cute and PRACTICAL. That’s really all I want in every department of my life.
Last week, I decided to tend to myself and invested some time into self-care with a massage. But it wasn’t just any massage folks…it was a massage that included The NOW’s Peppermint CBD Balm. WHAT?! They promise a “deep and effective physical relief” with benefits of reduced inflammation, the easing of stress and anxiety…Plus increased sensory stimulation. I can tell you that promise was delivered on. I felt SO good after…loose. If you can go to The NOW in Los Angeles, do yourself a favor and #treatyoself.
Need a new Instagram decor account to drool over?? Arlyn loves @palisociety. It’s a boutique hotel group that is serving up some GOOD color and pattern inspiration.
Speaking of needing something, you NEED to watch Schitt’s Creek on Netflix. It’s been around for a while but in my team’s opinion has not gotten the praise it deserves in the US (it’s a Canadian show). Give it an episode or two because after that you fall in love Hard.
I just bought these boyfriend overalls from Free People and have no desire to take them off because of how flattering yet comfortable they are.
Jess was incredibly moved after reading this essay written by 29-year-old chef, Fatima Ali, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Not only because of her unshakable strength but by her overall message that ‘it’s harder being miserable than it is to be happy.’ When a young dying person says something like that the rest of us need to listen. Life is simply too short to not choose happiness, even when it feels nearly impossible.
Velinda and her family found this website to bring an endless amount of “laugh out loud” fun. If you’re looking to kind of waste some time, check it out.
In Arlyn’s effort to become better and more conscious, she is transitioning all of her beauty and skincare products to be cruelty-free. This website has been an invaluable resource to make that process much easier.
Skincare was a big topic this week (Sara even brought a bunch of products for us to try from her stash). So in case you were wondering, yes, she is the best. But Michael chimed in with his favorite facial moisturizer, Jack Black Face Moisturizer with SPF. He’s used it Every. Single. Day. for 15 years. In his words ‘Gotta take care of that skin!’ And he has great skin.
Julie quit coffee and has switched to the Four Sigmatic Mushroom Elixir Mix. Its purpose is to help with focus and energy which she has confirmed it actually does. She recommends a lemon wedge for taste. In her words, it tastes most similar to English Breakfast tea but with some added “earthiness.”
So you’ve heard me talk about one of my favorite shoe companies, Nisolo, A LOT. My team is also 100% in love and took advantage of their last sale hard. Grace bought the Ama mule, Arlyn got the Chelsea Boot and Jess got the Mariella Mule. Our recommendation is to size up a half size. Good news for you all is that they are having another sale! It’s a Valentine’s Day BOGO (buy one get one) sale, which offers 30% off of your second purchase from their Valentine’s Day collection. Basically just buy a pair for yourself and your partner. 🙂
Now before we get into what I wore this week, I wanted to leave this here. This beautiful video is the perfect pick me up…but you have been warned that you should grab a tissue box before you hit play.
Okay, here is what I put on my body this week:
Head to the Fashion section of the SHOP page to get the links to everything that’s available online or very similar. 🙂
Okay, that’s it for me until tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
