Some Recent L’amour Loves

I couldn’t wait for March Favorites, and wanted to share some of my recent obsessions – things I’ve just been quite taken with, and felt really inspired by.

1 | Suki Ultra-Protect Eye Balm – Night


I was in need of a new nighttime eye cream, and after sampling the Tata Harper I just decided I didn’t feel like plunking down $90 right now for it. A good girlfriend of mine raves about this and I had sampled it prior, so decided to go for the much lower ~$37 price tag off Vitacost. Suki is an ultra-clean skincare range, and local to Massachusetts. Adoring this.

2 | doTerra Emotional Aromatherapy System


So I don’t have this full set (YET), but a friend of mine recently sent me a handcrafted homemade body oil using the Motivate and Passion blends from this set and OHMYGOD LIFE = CHANGED. It’s truly the most amazing scent/body product I have ever used. Hands down. No contest. EVEN better than my beloved discontinued (sniff sniff) BijaBody serum. So if those two are any indication, the rest of them are bound to be equally magical – for topical application or diffusing. Plus as someone who is constantly reflecting on her emotional life and the challenges hypersensitive emotional states present – this has my name all over it.

3 | We Are Vibrational Beings Documentary (YouTube)

I’m not finished watching this, but I embarked on it when the medical intuitive I work with spoke about how his measurement of a person’s millivolts is derived from the explanation that begins in this video around the 11 minute mark. As someone who watched What The Bleep Do We Know many years and was like YES – this is along the same vein. Everything is energy. Time to get on board.

4 | WELL / AWARE Podcastwell_aware_podcast_album_art1400x1400

So a) I’m not typically a tremendous podcast listener (I barely have enough time for YouTube and if I’m walking/commuting/whatever I’ll listening to beats) but b) this will in fact be a March Favorites because a lovely viewer sent me a message through YouTube telling me she thought I’d be into this. I AM but since YouTube can be incredibly buggy and irritating, I haven’t been able to reply to her message and thank her! Anyway. Digression. I listened to two episodes of this on my way home from vacation (the interviews with Thyme Herbal and Saipua) and was like yaaassss this is my TRIBE. I want to get the host, Lindsay, to interview Beauty Heroes founder Jeannie Jarnot. I think it would be a perfect fit.

5 | Leah Totten’s “Work” Choreography

We’ll end with a fun one. In line with my many other eclectic interests, j’adore hip-hop choreography, or really any form of dance. The only two I regularly still follow via YouTube are Luam, and Leah Totten. Based out of Vancouver I believe, I love her style – everything feels very connected and looks effortless. Also let it be said I like the song, and like the cover even better because Rihanna’s voice is damn annoying in the original (you know?).

I hope you feel some inspiration from any/all of these finds ❤
