Can we talk about some really simple things are making me happy this month? Yes! Let’s do it.

1. Fermented Cod Liver Oil/Butter Blend Beauty Balm
It is ridiculous how much this little product has changed my skin for the better. It is healing, smoothing and just generally awesome – once you get over that it smells a little bit like butter and lavender. While we are talking about how awesome Green Pastures is, I think the fact that I’ve been taking their Fermented Cod Liver Oil/Butter Blend since November has really helped with my gym recovery. Is that crazy? Maybe. But I wasn’t sore at all after 13.3, and a year prior when I did that workout, I couldn’t walk right for a week. BOOM: Inflammation Be Gone!

2. Fresh Tulips

Seriously, fresh flowers make all the difference in the house! I’ve been picking up a bouquet a week at Trader Joe’s (so cheap!) when I do my grocery shopping and it’s making my house feel so fancy!

3. Bath & Body Works Candles

I love these 3- wick candles, and I wait until they go on super sale (they always do – right now they are 2 for $22) and stock up on seasonal scents, just like I do with all of their hand soaps, and then my house seriously smells festive. Add that in with the tulips and I am already celebrating spring!

4. Dream More
I’ve been having a little bit of a 90s revival musically (oh god, it is hysterical) which made me want to buy a replacement for one of my favorite GAP scents. I picked up a body spray at the Outlet recently and it’s just crazy how nostalgia is so tied up with scent and sound. If you put orange blossom in a perfume, I WILL BUY IT.

5. Trader Joe’s Shaved Brussels Sprouts
Oh you guys, this is one of those things that TJ’s only has *sometimes* AND IT IS BACK AND I AM GLEEFUL! It’s so convenient to have on hand to saute up with ghee and shallots or toss in a little warm bacon vinaigrette or to make a fresh salad with (I like to add apples too.) YUM. YUM. YUM. and YUM.

6. Banana Boat Airbrush Color

The sun is out so it’s time to spray down my SUPA DUPA WHITE legs. The problem with me and self-tanner is I’m usually one false move away from looking like an Oompa Loompa with stripes. This Airbrush self-tanner has been super reliable, easy to apply and natural looking and to me, that says a lot considering that even those “Build a Tan Slowly” type lotions turn me orange. I highly recommend it! I’ve already gone through 2 cans!


What is rocking YOUR world lately?

    I LOVE shaved brussel sprouts. I always buy them when they’re in stock. I’m obsessed w/ TJ’s spicy peanut dressing & these are borderline addicting smothered in that dressing… I’m drooling now… :)

    I finally broke down and bought the Beauty Balm because of how much everyone raves about it. I was extremely scared about the smell, but I actually really like it–it’s not fishy at all! I slathered it all over my face the first night, and the next morning I was suuuuuper broken out. So now it’s my eye cream. Maybe I’ll try working my way up to it because I want the super glowy, nourished skin that everyone else gets from it.

      A little goes a long way, I’ve learned! I do love it, but it took some getting used to: in application and everything. Definitely try again!

    SHAVED BRUSSELS!? OMG I hope my TJs gets these because that’s a game changer.

      Oh it is! I seriously buy that and the cleaned/chopped kale from TJs IN BULK. So cheap! So convenient! And this is what my life has come to: excitement about cruciferous veggies. OMG.

    I remember wearing the Grass scent from GAP. I loved it so much.

      Grass was a SUPER FAVE! I don’t even think the outlets sell that anymore, but man I’d love to smell that again. I wonder if I’d still think it would smell good or if it would just smell like teenage angst and despair. :)

    How much of the FCLO/BO Blend do you take a day? I started taking it in January. I really like it as well. I was thinking of adding a second dose in the evening. I’m starting back at crossfit and have some knee issues. Fish oil never worked for me, so I dropped it after listening to some discussion with Chris Kresser and the ladies at Balanced Bites.

    I definitely want to try the Green Pastures Beauty Balm. However,I decided to try the calm balm first. Its supposed to be good for joints. I want to see if it helps with my knees post WOD. I was taking too much ibuprophen and need to find another alternative. I put it on one knee last night and it seemed to help. We’ll see how it does long term. Its a bit pricey for regular use. That little jar won’t stretch far if I’m rubbing it on my knees regularly, but if it works…

      Hi Tricia,

      I take 2 pills of the FCLO/BO in the morning and 2 at night. I can’t even remember how I settled on that dose (or how much it is) but that’s what I’ve been taking, for what it’s worth. I think it has made a HUGE difference for me.

    Thanks. I’ll have to look it up and compare. I’ve been using the cinnamon tingle gel rather than the capsules.

    LOVE the beauty balm! I cannot believe the difference it has made in my skin either and that little jar goes a long way. I also have been taking the FCLO/BO in the cinnamon tingle gel-form for several months and I swear that has what has kept me healthy this winter. No colds! No flu! Healthy, healthy! You should try the cinnamon tingle gel…it doesn’t taste bad at all and it’s a ton more economical than the capsules. I took those at first but realized that you’d have to take 6-8 capsules a day to get the correct dosage so I bit the bullet and tried the gel. It was FINE! Not even a gag reflex, which I was worried about. I even kinda crave it now…weird, I know!
