Weekly Love & Comfort List: An Introduction

The Weekly Love & Comfort List is a call to live your best life and give yourself a little love and comfort while doing so. Each week, I will share a collection of helpful tips ranging from fashion, skincare, fitness and more that will better our days.

The Aura app has been such a positive part of my healing journey. The morning meditations are short yet effective and will make a positive difference in your day. Each of them are positive, relaxing, and convenient. Set the daily reminders as well to make your life easier.

Getting myself and my business organized was key to the incredible growth I have experienced over the last year. After listening to The Skinny Confidential’s podcast on organization, I immediately purchased the Time Cubes that were featured. They are a great way to put a time limit on chores and to-do lists, without using the timer on your iPhone, which can lead to distraction (“Let me check Instagram one last time before finishing my laundry” – BAD).

Cooking has been a major source of comfort for me lately, so I upgraded some of our pans. One of the best purchases I have made so far is Le Creuset’s Saucier Pan in White. It’s deep enough for soups, small enough to make dishes for two and I love that the lid contains a steam hole to prevent boil overs. It also looks really pretty, which makes my aesthete heart happy.

Starting each day writing 10 things I am grateful for and 10 things I appreciate about myself has made such a difference in my mood, productivity and overall wellbeing. Did you know that grateful people experience more positive emotions, less negative emotions and less depression and anxiety? They are also less likely to pursue materialistic goals that don’t support their long-term objectives. Mind-blown.

My skincare collection makes me smile ear to ear, but there has been one standout that has proven to be incredibly effective – Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. Improving the texture of the skin on my neck has been a bit of an obsession lately, so I have upped the use of this juicy, dewy serum. It’s loaded with hyaluronic acid which is a hydration superstar. Add this cult favourite to your routine. Thank me later.

Thank you for reading and see you next week!
