Hey friends! For this blog I wanted to go with something a bit more lighthearted. I asked for requests and a friend said she would love to hear about my favorite things and why they make me happy. I hope that as you’re safe at home this is a fun and positive read for you to take your mind off things.
Houseplants – this deserves the number one spot on my list! Plants in general make me happy, but especially indoor plants. I love how they freshen the air and add a touch of green to any space! My favorite place to buy them is Home Depot because they’re always a great price. But if you live in the Nashville area Gardens of Babylon and Lawrence and Clark Cacti Co. are very cute options as well!
Flea Markets – If you know me at all you know that I love a good treasure hunt. I recently discovered the fun of the Nashville Flea Market! Sadly I haven’t been able to go in a while, but when it opens back up I’ll be the first one there!
Thayers Witch Hazel Facial Toner – This is a skincare item I started using about a year ago. It smells great and helps reduce redness. As a redhead I have really fair skin and a naturally pink skin tone so this helps to even things out. It also smells great! You can find it at Target!
Shower Foot Scrubber – I ordered this on Amazon randomly one day and it’s my favorite impulse purchase ever. It sticks onto the floor of your shower and you can clean and massage your feet on it! Definitely worth it. Here’s a link 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L9JXZSF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_sltJEbXMNM5B9
Theraflow Rolling Foot Massager – As someone who works on my feet a lot at a coffee shop this thing is a lifesaver! If you’re like me and can’t afford an electronic foot massager this helps as an alternative. And it’s less than $10! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019317GNK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_iotJEbJAY03GM
Trader Joe’s Coconut Hair Serum – If you have wavy, frizzy hair like me look no further! This stuff is cheap and works like a charm. You can find it at Trader Joe’s for just a few dollars. A little goes a long way and it helps tremendously with frizzy hair.
My weighted blanket – This is a very polarizing item and some people hate it, but for me it’s amazing! It helps me go to sleep faster and stay asleep. If you have trouble falling asleep due to anxiety I would highly recommend buying one. You can find these on Amazon or at many big box retail stores! I have a 15 lb weighted blanket.
Orbeez – This one is for people with kids (or if you’re a young at heart adult)! I’ve been a babysitter and nanny for about a year now so I have lots of fun tricks up my sleeve. Orbeez are so much fun to play with! They’re small little balls that grow when left it water. Great for entertaining kids (or adults)! 🙂 I found some on Amazon.
Bananagrams – If you’re looking for a game to play while quarantining this is a great one! I’m not a huge game person, but this one is so fun. It’s a word game that can be played with 2 or more players. You can even play by yourself if you’re bored! It can be found on Amazon.
Last but definitely not least – leading worship! This is one of my favorite things to do. I love getting to spend time in fellowship with other believers and create a space to worship. I haven’t been able to do his in person for a while, but I can’t wait until we’re able to gather together again!
