Monthly Mojo (February)

Rascal Flatts and Heather Blissdom

Today I’m excited to launch a monthly project I’m doing with my bloggy friends, Rachel & Molly! The photo above is from Blissdom blogging conference where we met and enjoyed meeting Rascal Flatts! We are collaborating to show you what we’re loving each month….aka our Monthly Mojo! Learn a little bit more about these pretty girls below and then see some of my favorite things of the month and theirs by visiting their blogs!

Molly is a lifestyle blogger at Stilettos and Diapers. She’s a mommy of 2 and has her own store online you should check out called Molly Suzanne.

Rachel is also a lifestyle blogger at Running Backwards in High Heels and has two little “ginger flippers,” is a runner, and also lives in the great state of AL with me.

The reasons I love these girls are probably becoming more obvious…we have a lot in common. We’re all southerners into fashion, blogging, shoes, clean eating and fitness. What’s not to love, right?! So, with all the introductions aside, here’s my top 5 favorites of the moment for this month:

Ai/E10 Immunity Booster
1. Ai/E10: My co-worker told me about this miracle immune system booster. She said one of her nursing friends recommended it as a way to avoid getting sick. A friend of mine used it when she was first starting nursing in pediatrics (which apparently means you usually spend your first whole year sick and building up your immunity!) and didn’t get sick once! All her colleagues couldn’t believe how she was staying healthy in the germy environment.
Lavender Essential Oil
2. Lavender Oil: I have recently fallen in love with Young Living Essential Oil! I got it because I learned how much it can help with allergies. Eric and I both really struggle with this, and have been amazed at how much it helps us out! Instead of using expensive OTC allergy pills, I now just swipe the insides of my cheeks with a drop of lavender in the morning and night. I usually spend most of the winter sick, but between Ai/E10 and this (knock on wood!) I’ve been well all fall and winter. MIRACLE!
3. Uggs: I always made fun of people that wore Uggs. Up until I got a pair for free and saw how comfy they were. OK, OK people. I get it now. It’s kind of ridiculous how comfy they are. Much to my husband’s chagrin I enjoy wearing them now. The main reason I am biased towards them now though is the fact that I was wearing them during SNOWMAGEDON here in Birmingham last week and while I was freezing my booty off, they kept me as warm as boots could. And, maybe I love them because I didn’t bust my butt on the ice in them as well.
4. Bobbi Brown eye palette: Ever since I got this eye palette for Christmas, I’ve been pretty obsessed. I love the light or dramatic look you can create with it. The colors last all day and it’s just a quality set. If you’re looking for a fun new eye color palette, I’d recommend this one. I really like the browny/golds with my hazel eyes. I feel like it makes them pop more.
Cassadee Pope
5. Wasting All These Tears: Cassadee Pope’s song is the one I find myself drawn to on Spotify a lot right now…this or Drunk in Love by Beyonce. I watched Cassadee’s whole season on The Voice and really enjoy her voice. If you haven’t listened to this song yet or her rendition of Over You, you must check them out!
What are your current favorites right now? I’d love to hear what you’re listening to or what products you’re using to beat dried out winter skin!

    Our family’s newest happy discover is “Dr. Horowitz’s Liquid Dentist.” My husband heard about it. I was put off by the price ($40 for 8oz) but he and I were both having an achy tooth issue and then our daughter was diagnosed with her first ever cavity. We started using it and all of our teeth improved almost right away. Not only that, but I’ve always had some hot/cold sensitivity issues and that’s gone as well. Bonus – no mouthwash has ever made my mouth feel cleaner. TOTALLY worth the $40!

      Wow, that’s really interesting, Elizabeth! I’ll totally have to look into that!

    Uggs are so comfy! I love them for my little girl (although I actually have Bear Paws for her, since I got her first pair new at a yard sale for $1!) since they’re good for warm boots, and they’ll withstand the cold temps, but they still look a lot cuter than snowboots!

      Haha, you’ve got that right, Jamie! Although, I bet they’re cuter on her than they are on me. 😉

    I love Rascal Flatts!!! I saw them up CLOSE when oprah shut down Michigan Ave. in Chicago a few years ago! Awesome! I love Uggs, may have to see about those in the blog. 🙂 Bobbi Brown has amazing products. I may need to visit Nordstrom soon!

    Uggs… so are they better than the knock offs? I have such a hard time swallowing spending that kind of $ but if the quality is better, I may just do it. I wish I could do a blind shoe test!

      Hi Aimee! Haha, that’s a great invention…why don’t they do that. I’ve never tried knock offs, so I don’t know. Next time you’re out and about–let me know if you test it out.

      Thanks so much, Shelly! I just updated with a plugin to help with the pin it hover over. Will be interesting to see how much it helps. I’ll have to go check out your blog next.
