Recharge, Relax and Read Blogs


Vacations are both a blessing and a curse. I love the reprieve from the crazy schedules and busy days that tend to bog me down. That break from chaos gets me off a routine in a good way…until I’m back. I confess, I’m a hot mess after a week off in Miami. I have yet to get to the gym, I’m not drinking nearly enough water, my to-do list is scattered and my nose got slightly red from the Miami sun despite my best efforts with SPF.

This weekend, I’m going in to recharge mode. Bloggers to the rescue!

  1. Dani from Life’s a Journal created the to-do list of all to-do lists. I stocked up on her Daily Page Notepad at the start of the year and whenever I document my day on this, it’s always a good one. She conveniently sells them in her Etsy shop (she’s so cool!) I vow to plan my Saturday with this and get at least my Monday mapped out in advance.
  2. Editor turned blogger turned skincare founder Beauty Bets is teaming with One Love Organics on a plant-powered skincare line. Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics officially launches March 4! I’ve got a sample tucked away that I plan to put to good use this weekend. My skin wants in on the recharge action, too, and I think the Vitamin C Serum is just the answer.
  3. I met two fabulous and witty ladies at the Chicago Blogger Network Oscar Party at Nellcôte: Lenka of Healthy Fit Goddess and Lindsay of The Garden Apt. Their blogs are super awesome and are inspiring me to be more fit and do cool stuff for my home and closet. I plan to carve out some time this weekend to read through their archives!
  4. Lunch is my biggest weekday struggle. I’m always so hungry, which means if I don’t plan I eat poorly. My colleague Rachel, who covers Chicago eats for My Daily Find, was eating a homemade version of Whole Foods detox salad and though it looked like bird food, it was delicious! She uses a recipe inspired by Oh She Glows (#4 photo credit to Oh She Glows as well) and I plan to make a huge batch for lunch next week!

I’ll be getting in my share of blogger-inspired R&R, for sure. What are your weekend plans?

One Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum


Think about how important a serum is for your face. All of those antioxidants and free radical fighters. It’s definitely an important step in my daily get-up. You guys, city air is bad news. Free radicals are everywhere – little particles that want nothing but to age us prematurely. I’ve waged a full on war. I live in fight free radical combat mode and have diverted some of that energy to my body. Moisturizer and SPF (when you’re not wearing everything you own at once, i.e. winter) are a given, but since discovering One Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum my skin looks and feels smoother. No small feat in the winter.

One Love Organics Founder Suzanne LeRoux designed this product especially for the body using potent natural actives and a blend  of organic plant oils. The ammo of Pumpkin Seed and Sea Buckthorn oils work together to exfoliate, tighten and nourish skin. The spray nozzle is super convenient and my skin drinks this serum up. While I’m partial to the Rose, each Aromatic Body Serum has something special to offer.

  • Rose: Rose essential oil is often known as a natural anti-depressant and helps open the heart
  • Chamomile: Chamomile essential oil helps to comfort the spirit and boost self-control
  • Neroli:  Neroli essential oil induces happiness, while promoting energy and playfulness
  • Lavender: Lavender essential oil helps ease tired muscles while inspiring the spirit

Available on Birchbox.com or at One Love Organics for $39.  There’s also this handy sampler pack that would be an amazing way to try each aroma out or stash away for future travels.
