This post is going to be an “extension” from my previous post.
Today, I am sharing my current favorite products, foods and such that have helped me stay “sane” during quarantine. Some of these may be repeats from previous posts, but they are worth a second mention.
Without further ado, here are eight things I currently cannot live without.
Newman’s Own Organic Coffee: Typically, I get Green Mountain Nantucket blend, but I tried this coffee at my local library and was hooked. It’s stronger than the Nantucket Blend, but I just add extra water to the machine.
Califia Farms Hazelnut Better Half Creamer: I’ve mentioned this creamer a few times, but it is seriously delicious. At my supermarket, it’s $2.69. It’s a bit pricey for what I’d typically spend on coffee creamer, but it makes my coffee taste a bit more decadent.
Yogurt Bowls: I’ve been on a yogurt bowl kick for almost two months. I use plain Fage Greek yogurt, Special K Ancient Grain cereal, berries (usually black or raspberries) and hemp seeds.
Barre3 Online Workouts: I love Barre3, like LOVE. I was actually working towards becoming a teacher for Barre3 but unfortunately because I taught classes close by, it would have been a contract issue.They have a few free videos on YouTube, but you can also get a 15-day free trial of their online workouts.
St. Ive’s Calming Daily Chamomile Cleanser: This is by far the best cleanser I have found for my skin. I have very oily, sensitive skin. I wash my face with this in the morning and night and use this cream under my eye. Any bit of remaining cream on my finger, I spread it around my face.
Since my face is more oily, I don’t need much in terms of moisturizing. I’m pretty minimal with my skin care.
Refreshing Essential Oil: I was lucky enough to snag a few essential oils that were 90% off on clearance (of $12.99) at Kohl’s. This is a blend of lemon, lime, lemongrass, rosemary & linaloe wood. It smells so good and invigorating. Unfortunately, it is out of stock but this blend that includes lemon is what I usually get.
Halo Top Peanut Butter & Jelly: This was on sale at Walmart for only $1.00. Yes, you read that right… one whole dollar. I got a few and it tastes close to the peanut butter one but with a hint of strawberry. When I get a sweet tooth craving at night, this hits the spot.
There you have it, eight things I currently cannot live without.
Hope everyone is doing well and trying to find the joy in the little things.
Stay healthy and safe friends. ❤
