Hi, hello- and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🙂
I’m not usually one who makes a big deal out of New Years as I honestly tend to break my resolutions as I don’t hold myself accountable haha. This year I’ve gotten some support from my family for all of us to keep on track and I thought I would share some of my goals with you in hopes we can all connect and share! 🙂
Goal #1: Improve my skincare routine!
I feel a bit embarrassed to say this…but I honestly don’t have an amazing skincare routine. I have a TON of skincare products but I don’t use them often nor do I really know how to use some! A major goal I have is to try more skincare products and find what truly works for my skin. This includes my face and my whole body! I have really bad eczema so I tend to have a bit of sensitive skin and my hands are constantly hurting but I don’t take care of my skin as well, which just loops around to one big mess!
If you have a holy grail skincare routine, I would LOVE it if you shared below! I have kind of dry skin but my T-zone lately has been oily, weirdly enough as that never happened before!
Pictured above are some body oils I am planning on using from Raspberry Mint – which is a Canadian brand! They are cruelty free and natural products and I cannot wait to use them! 🙂 They kindly gave me a coupon code for you all to use which is Grand50 if you are interested in trying them out – it gives you 50% off the site!
Goal #2: Have a healthier lifestyle/lose weight
This goal is a tough one – over the last five years I have gained A LOT of weight. I would say a bit part of it is due to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Thyroid problems. Both have resulted in a lot of weight gain – diabetes is also really high on my dad’s side of the family, so that also factors in. My eating habits are definitely not good either – so altogether, big changes need to happen! I’m on medications now, but I really need to start working out and eating healthier! My overall goal is to lose at least 50 pounds which will be difficult as I have never really eaten that well but I know I need to in order to be a better version of myself.
When Teami Blends and I got in touch, I was really nervous and hesitant as I am the worst person honestly to do programs, stick with it, etc. But I knew this was one good step towards being healthier and really cleansing out my system! I haven’t tried this yet, but I have a 30 day program that includes a skinny tea and a colon tea!
These teas claim to have benefits such as improving skin, flushing out toxins, limiting bloating and helping with digestive issues. I’m honestly really excited to start this 30 day journey and I will definitely keep you updated on how it goes! 🙂
If you are interested in joining this 30 day detox with me, you can get 10% off using the code XXOJESS10 . I’ll be honest – I’m a tad nervous, so if you do plan on doing it as well, let me know and we can motivate each other! If you’ve done it in the past, let me know how it worked for you! ❤
Goal #3: Improve my dental hygiene
Don’t get me wrong – I take care of my teeth – but I could definitely take better care of them! I really want to brighten my smile as I find my teeth have been getting a bit more yellow since I’ve introduced caffeine into my daily routine. One way I plan on doing this is using Arm and Hammer’s toothpaste and their spinbrush daily! The toothpaste claims to whiten teeth within 5 days and the spinbrush aims at reducing plaque! Realistically, as much as I want to floss more, I know that is unlikely (lol) so I am hoping these work out well!
Arm and Hammer was nice enough to send me a second set of the Truly Radiant toothpaste and spinbrush – so here comes a giveaway!
