My fave of the week has to be Humble Bee Candles. I stumbled upon this brand on Instagram and being that they are handcrafted in Toronto, I couldn’t help but order right away. Not only do these candles smell delightful, but I got my name personalized on the lid which adds an amazing touch. I will totally be getting one for my bestie for their birthday!
For me, January usually means back to healthy habits & routines, but I don’t always have time to pack a nutritious lunch made from scratch. I picked up a few health-focused easy meals from the grocery store and Mann’s Nourish Bowls are BY FAR my favourite. I just pop mine in the microwave and it’s fresh, not frozen food. They actually taste great, nourish you and fill you right up. The Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bowl is my pick- it has chopped kale, cauliflower, broccoli, salsa and just the right amount of shredded cheese. For around $5, I get all the yummy ingredients I need to last me through the day.
I have been on the hunt for a new holy grail hydrating face primer and I think I have found it in Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer. It gives my skin a great base to put my foundation on and keeps my skin as hydrated as it can be in this brutally cold weather. I don’t recommend putting this on any large pore areas though, it will look like you are wearing a magnifying mirror on your face and that first glimpse in the mirror will wake you up faster than an espresso shot direct to your veins.
My Friday Fave this week is the Summer Fresh Seven Grain Salad. This salad comes in small resealable bowls that are easy to bring for lunch and can be found in most grocery stores. Not to mention the salad is delicious, super filling and good for you. The ingredients are a medley of seven wholesome grains, including lentils, wheat berry, rice, couscous, mung beans, pearl barley, navy beans, fresh green onions and red pepper. Part of my new years resolution is to be more sustainable and eat less meat, and this salad is helping me reach my goals and feel a lot healthier in the meantime. Summer Fresh has many options for anyone on the go looking for healthy, vegetarian options.
