Mindful Monday // 1/7/19

Oh hello, Monday.

Let’s take some mindful moments before we start our day.

This little Monday Mindfulness series is a chance for me to give space to take a pause, share thoughts and things that I’ve been loving and appreciate the little moments in life.

Mindfulness

// 52 List for Happiness

This book is beautifully designed and has thoughtful prompts with reflection and action steps for you to take to inspire happiness and cultivate a mindfulness and gratitude practice. I love putting my thoughts on to paper and sometimes have a hard time thinking of what to write, so I appreciate the mindful questions and it allows me the time to think about the people, things, places, etc that bring me joy. Do you have a favorite journal?

Mindful Style + Beauty

// Kosas Lipsticks

I shared on instagram that this past year I’ve been slowly transitioning to clean beauty products. Lipstick has actually been one of the last finds (still looking for a good eyeliner). I had been using a drug store brand that I loved, though didn’t have the best ingredients and couldn’t quite find a clean brand that was as moisturizing. Enter Kosas Cosmetics. I discovered the brand during one of my many trips to Credo Beauty and I fell in love! I purchased 3 lipsticks that day and later purchased the Kissable Lipstick Trio Set. My favorite everyday shade is rosewater – a beautiful, semi-sheer blush pink that compliments my olive skin tone very nicely <3

Mindful Living

// Stasher Bags

I purchased a Stasher Bag for myself last summer that I’ve been using to hold snacks for work and just purchased a couple more during the holidays for Ri and Em to use. These are great for replacing ziplock bags and are perfect for keeping pre-cut vegetables, leftovers, or using small snacks for lunches. I really like these because the zipper works surprisingly well & I really feel like it does a great job of keeping food airtight.

Mindful Consumption

// Apples + Almond Butter

Early last year, I made a commitment to myself to cut out added sugars. I did really well up until our Europe trip in November – I couldn’t not eat all the yummy Parisian pastries 😉 I’m slowly trying to adjust to eating cleaner and adding more fruits in my diet to curb my sugar cravings. Apples + almond butter are a definite go-to snack when I need something sweet! What’s yours?
