The WTHN April Essentials
Beauty, food, and fitness - Let's recap our favorite products and practices from April that made us feel our best self!
The Kuumba Made fragrance oils have been my Spring go-to recently (especially the Tunisian Jasmine scent)! I have been swapping my daily perfume for natural fragrances instead and have loved the benefits:
Environmentally friendly and allergen-free
Alcohol and chemical free (non-toxic)
The Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm in the shade "Cherry" has been my newest lip obsession. This balm provides the perfect rosy tint to you lips while also moisturizing them for the Spring/Summer months, they are available at Sephora!
Using a gua-sha is one of the best add-ins in my skincare routine. gua shas and jade rollers have amazing benefits on our lymphatic drainage system, circulation, puffiness, and muscle tension. Apply with oil and watch your skin glow!
Okay, I have mentioned before that I am not dairy's biggest fan, but Good Culture's Cottage Cheese is the exception. I have started to incorporate cottage cheese into my diet because of its amount of protein, probiotics, vitamins. I love making breakfast bowls with it by adding honey, berries, and yogurt for a protein-packed and superfood meal!
Kombucha! I love drinking kombucha as the weather begins to warm-up. Not only is it delicious and refreshing, kombucha is amazing for your gut because of its pre and probiotic cultures. My favorite brand is Synergy and all the flavors are incredible!
Trader Joes' Cauliflower Gnocchi is a staple in my family's freezer. On busy nights, this pasta is a perfect easy meal and pairs well with pesto and some parmesan cheese. Joe can never go wrong.
I don't know how many times I can stress the importance of walking, but it is my absolute favorite hobby right now. I encourage you all to take advantage of this Spring weather and go on more walks for you body, mind, and soul!
Now, with the increase of walking I also have needed to increase my hydration. The Liquid I.V. hydration multiplier packets are such an easy and effective way to keep your hydration in check and also adds a fun Spring twist to plain water!
