Add It To The List

Quick post today, friends. I hadn't planned to post because Le Husband has been home since Friday and I wanted to enjoy the evenings with him and get stuff done around the house. Then, this morning I saw quite a few of these ADD IT TO THE LIST posts and thought, yup, I'm in it to win it.

Sleep has been something I've complained about since March and I'm slowly trying to find my sleeping rhythm. The past two months have been tough because I wasn't staying asleep for more than an hour at a time. I made the room colder, started going to bed later and FINALLY listened to Kathy and ordered some Natural Calm. I take 1.5 teaspoons about an hour before bed and my mind slows and I'm usually able to get to sleep quickly. I still wake up once a night, but that's way better than six to seven times. I bought the pink bottle [of course] and didn't realize it had stevia in it, so I"ll be guying the other bottle once this is done. Highly recommend if you need to ease your mind or get more sleep!

 Tarte Shape Tape: Y'all were NOT kidding, this product is pretty freaking fantastic. Thank you to everyone who suggested it last week. I went out and bought it on Friday and feel so much better about my eyes this week. Honest moment, I dabbed on WAY too much Monday morning and so randomly did some highlight work on my face to blend it in, oooops! A little goes a long way so I'm pretty happy with the coverage and the price. Thanks, friends!

While at Ulta I purchased a few other delights and wouldn't you know, this amazing palette was on SALE! YES, URBAN DECAY was half off. I'm not the best at the smoky eye, but for the price am willing to play around a little bit. I checked on sephora and it was also on sale there online, go snag one, friends.

Another recommendation, one from Kathy and one from my husband a year or so ago. Le husband started taking collagen for gut health and I tried it a few times but meh, didn't really stick with it. However, in the past few months I've seen a ton of other companies coming out with collagen supplements so I started putting it in my coffee a few times a week. After my whiny post last week, Kathy reminded me HOW GOOD this is for skin and as of last week have made sure my morning cup of coffee has at least a teaspoon. If you start this regimen, START WITH SMALL DOSAGES, or expect to be in the bathroom more than normal. I've already noticed a different in my face, woohoo!

Not too many products, but these are big keepers in my opinion. What should I add to my list?

Not being able to sleep is the worst, so I'm so glad you found something that is helping! I've been curious about shapetape, but you convinced me to try it out the next time I need concealer.

Can you taste the collagen when you add it to coffee or it just melts in?

I am a huge fan of magnesium for sleep, I take a supplement.

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

i have been meaning to try the Natural Calm. i take magnesium occasionally because my legs go all crazy restless when i go to bed, but lately i have been taking melatonin. i need to stop but good lord it's amazing being able to take it and fall dead to the world asleep within 20 minutes. that has literally never happened to me before, unless i'm drunk or travelling and walking 20,000 steps or whatever. my friends have recommended shape tape and i have been meaning to get my butt to ulta to try it. i have heard about collagen as well but am a little wary of it lol. i'll have to try it! in small doses of course.

So glad you are getting some sleep! Yay, the collagen is so great and you can't even taste it!

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

I recommend magnesium to everyone it's kind of creepy lol. i'm glad you're feeling the benefits of it (and the collagen as well)!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm so glad that your sleep is better now that you are taking that! It's amazing how life changing good sleep can be.

jenn said...

god bless you for mentioning that sleep-aid. i have not had a good night's sleep in WEEKS, and all the things i normally use to help me conk out are NOT doing a damned bit of good. i'm going to order some of that shit RIGHT NOW and cross my fingers that it works.

Katie Elizabeth said...
