her kisses might not be able to heal me, but they sure help 🖤

It's been an extremely difficult few days. Last week I went to the doctor (for the first time in years) and my blood pressure was off the charts 168/110 - so they gave me two options, go down to the ER or make an appointment with my general doctor. I opted for the general doctor and made an appointment for Monday. My blood pressure was lower but still high (143/92) but the general doctor didn't think I actually struggle with high blood pressure. (Them) Do you struggle with anxiety? (Me) Every. Single. Day. (Them) What do you take to help manage it? (Me) Nothing, I've been trying to manage it naturally, but clearly that isn't working too well. I stopped listening at this point, I felt like I had failed myself. I drove home feeling numb and put off picking up my meds (I'm really good at avoiding things I don't want to do). When I dropped Buster off at the vet on Thursday, I figured I better pick up the meds and start taking them - yesterday was the hardest day of my life (thus far) and it was also the first day I started taking my anxiety medication. I know there is absolutely nothing wrong with taking meds to help heal my body, but it is still extremely difficult for me to accept. Knowing when to ask for help & actually asking for help is so hard. But knowing you aren't alone helps 🖤

the legend that was Buster 🖤 i wasn't ready, but you were. my heart is broken into a million pieces.

Good morning. Happy Thursday. Cute butt.

The Jellies are so damn delightful, they are here for good!!! Swipe, shimmer, and shine with safer gloss for the young at heart. These high-shine lip gloss duos smell sweetly similar to throwback glosses of decades past — but with clean ingredients and a non-sticky feel, they've come a long way!! available shade duos- orange cream + honey raspberry + cocoa AND MY FAVORITE peppermint + sorbet

to the girl who struggles - you are never alone for years i tried so hard, i just wanted to be liked by everyone & now i am embracing the beautiful mess that i am. i'm not perfect, i never will be. but each and every day i am learning. (also, can we take a moment to appreciate actually taking care of your skin - tinted moisturizer and mascara is all that i'm wearing)

✨CLEAN SAFE MAGICAL DEODORANT✨ IS THERE A DETOX PROCESS WHEN YOU SWITCH TO THE CLEAN DEO? HOW LONG IS THAT PROCESS? YES. When you go clean, you need to sweat it out. Don't be nervous. Sweating is magic. It can take a few weeks for your armpits to detox from the toxins that have been trapped in sweat ducts by antiperspirants, and you might experience a (temporary) odor. SWEATING IS YOUR BODY'S NATURAL WAY OF DETOXING SWEATING IS THE BEST. IT'S OKAY. I PROMISE. Fresh tip: to help speed the process along, use Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask on underarms once a week, and wash underarms daily with Counter+ Charcoal Cleansing A few more things to know: 💦 This long-lasting, hardworking deodorant neutralizes odor and absorbs sweat, keeping you feeling fresh all day, every day-no aluminum required. It glides on smooth without leaving white residue and comes in three perfectly splendid scents. 💦 It's formulated without aluminum, which can potentially clog pores and hinder the body's natural detoxification process. It is also formulated without synthetic fragrances. As with all the fragrances we use, we rigorously screened The Clean Deo fragrances for trace contaminants (which are often present in raw materials) to ensure they meet our strict safety standards. 💦 BONUS: It's REFILLABLE! By making this deodorant refillable and recyclable, we cut its water, fossil fuel, and greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 47%; the refillable case helps minimize waste in landfills. MAKE THE SWITCH - YOUR PITS + THE PLANET WILL THANK YOU 🌎

Take care of yourself as though you were the most awesome person you met. -Jen Sincero

It took me 4 years to quiet the doubts for a split second & finally say yes. @sweatytearsofjoy spent YEARS (years of me constantly saying no) trying to get me to see potential she saw in me - why do we doubt ourselves so much?! I loved the products and shared them constantly on social media. I love the mission and truly wanted to get safer beauty into the hands of everyone I knew. But when I heard beauty consultant, I instantly shut down. To be successful at that, I would need to be Instagram perfect, always be put together, and use ALL of the products. Haha 😂😂 was I ever wrong!!! As most of you are aware, my life is a beautiful mess 99.9% of the time & I am never Instagram perfect, but I try my damnedest to be authentic 100% of the time. If you have EVER thought about (or are now wondering) about joining me in this movement (or you just want the discount) , I'd love to chat 🖤

I didn't know it was possible to be THIS excited about a new washer and dryer. After going a little over a week without one, it was supposed to be delivered on Saturday. Unfortunately, it got delayed and was rescheduled for today. Thank goodness they were able to deliver it before the snow storm. And the biggest shout out to @susankopriva for the safe laundry detergent sample 🖤

Coffee is always a good idea ☕

#dryjanuary2021 is still going well if you were wondering 😂😂

//there's a temptation to multitask everything, but you can't multitask presence// ~cindy crawford i was attempting to do 900 things at once tonight and the only thing i did successfully, was burn my arm. cleansing balm to the rescue.

@katie_belser wins the lifesaver award today ☕

You're gonna miss this You're gonna want this back You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast These are some good times So take a good look around You may not know it now But you're gonna miss this

//sweat// sweat cleanses from the inside. it comes from places a shower will never reach -George Sheehan STOP using antiperspirants that plug your sweat glands. START using deodorant that allows your body to detox and remove heavy metals & harmful BPAs naturally. //your pits will thank you// #sweaton

hello sunshine ☀️

I really thought I would be used to the elevation by now 🙄 Seriously 8,500 ft is cra cra!! Derek and I went mountain biking over lunch and I am absolutely beat this afternoon - like almost falling asleep on the couch while trying to work. Thank goodness for my lil #pickmeup and my most favorite water bottle from @sweatytearsofjoy 💦

On the one hand, we all want to be happy. On the other hand,we all know the things that make us happy. But we don't do those things. Why? Simple. We are too busy. Too busy doing what? Too busy trying to be happy. //MATTHEW KELLY//

When the temps are dropping (I'm freezing) & I need a lil afternoon pick me up. I'm indulging with Smart Cocoa! But at only 15 calories per serving, can I really even consider it indulging?!? + the same energy, mood and weight management benefits as our other Smart products! All I'm missing is @so_delicious CocoWhip 🖤

If your antiperspirants contains this 👉🏻 it's time to make the switch!!! Antiperspirants are typically made with aluminum, which works to stop odor by plugging sweat glands and preventing sweating. Here's the thing. Our bodies NEED to sweat. Why? Sweating: 💦 Allows the body to naturally detox 💦 Removes heavy metals and harmful BPAs 💦 Helps regulate the body's temperature Have you tried other clean deodorants in the past & got frustrated when they stopped working? Girl, SAME!!! I sweat a lot (gross maybe, but true). I have been using Beautycounter's Clean Deo since August & what makes it better? IT ACTUALLY WORKS 👏🏻👏🏻 Clean has never smelled so good 🖤

DEODORANT LAUNCHES TOMORROW! 🥳🥳🥳 In YOU Wellness Group, we are going to learn together this month about why clean deodorant is important (no matter WHAT brand you choose). And we are going to play BINGO while we learn! Want in?! Message me!!! https://www.facebook.com/groups/youwellnessgroup

Sooooo out of alllll our best selling products, our team favorite in 2020 was the All Bright Vitamin C serum and here’s why: it comes in the brightest cutest yellow container and we (okay, I) am a sucker for cute packaging. But the yellow container isn’t the only reason we’re in love. This serum has been a game changer for my skin (especially because I’m a pretty low-maintenance skincare person, honestly.) What’s with the hype? This ultra-potent badass blend instantly brightens skin and helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots, while antioxidant-rich turmeric and camu camu extracts help protect against new ones. The formula also helps defend skin from the damaging effects of environmental stressors—revealing a more youthful-looking complexion. Benefits: A unique blend of two ultra-stable forms of vitamin C delivers a supercharged 10% potency Our quick-absorbing formula allows for easy layering and an instant boost of radiance Leaves skin glowing and promotes an even skin tone So here’s to a brighter 2021 from our kickass bright af team. XO PS if it’s your first time ever shopping Beautycounter message me, I have a code for you for 20% off.
