ANTI-PROCRASTINATION

Anti-Procrastination Update {8-21-18}

anti-procrastination

Did you see what my awesome kids did for me? Our living room walls were the golden yellow (similar to the hue of that chair in the above picture) and I have been wanting to change it for a few years now.

My Teagan and her guy gifted me with new walls, for no special reason other than to show love to me.

I chose Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams and just love how light reflects off of it.

Did you know that paint has an LRV (light reflective value) level? LRV is defined on a scale from one to 100…the higher the number the more light it reflects.

50+ light reflective value will reflect ANY light back into the room. The color I chose is said to have an LRV of 60.

This was important to me as the previous color seemed to absorb light not reflect it, and it was so dark in here, even with numerous windows and on sunny days! Read here to learn more about LRV.

Our living room and dining room are so much brighter. See this story feed on Instagram for before and after photos, and tell me what you think of the transformation in the comments below.

ONE BOOK I AM READING

The Complete Guide to Fasting by Jason Fung

I’ve been trying intermittent fasting and I’m loving the results for body and brain!

 

ONE THING I AM LISTENING TO

The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown

Life-changing!

 

ONE SONG I AM LOVING

Faithful by Sara Reeves

“Even when I cannot see, You are moving
Even when I cannot hear, You are singing over me
Even when I can’t hold on, You won’t let me go
You are faithful”

 

ONE PURCHASE I MADE

Organic Rose Hip Oil by Aura Cacia from Amazon

I use this as a base oil for my daily and nightly facial moisturizer. It is so light and amazing, and great for all skin types, but especially for anti-aging.

I add a pump of the oil to my palm, then add 2 drops of Skin Care oil from RMO oils, mix together in my palm and dot on my face. These 2 products used together is my FAV THING EVER.

Yes, all I use on my face for moisture the past year is oil!

 

ONE ITEM I WANT

Pineapple Tote Bag designed by Winship and Rose from Society Six

Could you imagine taking this cute bag to the farmer’s market & using it for groceries? So cute. Guess who the amazing artist is? Winship and Rose aka MY MOMMA! Click through to see more of her designs and talent.

ONE RECIPE TO TRY

Instant Pot Honey Teriyaki Chicken from Creme De La Crumb

*Update: I made it and it was delish. I would for sure use low-sodium soy sauce! I didn’t and ours was a bit too salty. I WILL make it again, my family loved it and it was so easy.

ONE RMO PRODUCT I’M USING

I’m still loving the scent of the Rocky Mountain Oil called Immune Strength oil in my all-purpose cleaner, especially because we have been having some cool, rainy, fall-like weather!

Think citrus and cinnamon together…yum. Bonus: it is a calming fragrance. Therapeutic cleaning..I’ll take some of that!

A favorite DIY cleaner that cleans all the things! It could not be more simple to make and does not coat your surfaces with toxic chemicals, but does the opposite...with the recommended oil, it is actually aromatherapy while you clean!

Ingredients

  • 1 T dish soap
  • 10-20 drops Immune Strength Oil or oil of choice
Recipe Notes

Order Immune Strength oil from Rocky Mountian Oils. You can use it in this recipe or diffuse it. It is one of their most popular oils with so many benefits and smells delish.
