Saje Wellness Debuts A Stunning Line Of 100% Natural Home Cleaning Supplies

April 19, 2018

I have been obsessed with Saje Natural Wellness  ever since I discovered their essential oils which blew all my others out of the ballpark. I am never without my Pocket Farmacy and the Blend Bar sits on my desk. And now my son, 7, carries the inhaler around at school and it makes him feel really cool. (With a warning DON’T YOU DARE LET SOME RUNNY NOSE KID STICK IT IN THEIR NOSE!).

Ok, so now it gets even better with their debut of  this line of products for “Clean Cleaning” – their first 100% natural home cleaning line formulated with three things in mind: health, wellness and safety of your family.

I’m sure you know by now as you are smart, dear readers, you ONLY want to approach your home the same way you do your bod…. And you can do so by protecting your family from some of the 200 chemicals we are exposed to as part of our daily routines, including cleaning your home.

Guess what…Those clean or green lines you see at Target ? ( I won’t name them) are dripping with synthetic chemicals. Not here.

No artificial ingredients, just nature. I just stocked up and was so busy cleaning with them, I literally could not remember where I left one – I had it in EVERY CORNER OF MY HOME! I think it’s in a closet somewhere?

Also the price is really right too, thank god. 

Like all Saje Natural Wellness products, the Clean Cleaning line is:

  • 100% natural, formulated from plant and mineral-based ingredients
  • Free from harmful synthetic toxins found in many cleaning products
  • Free from artificial fragrances: just natural aromas from pure essential oils

The line consists of…

OH! And here are the blends I can’t live without…Also their diffusers are BOMB!!!

The Gift Of Sleep With Swannies

March 17, 2018

If you are not wearing Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses NO WONDER YOU CAN’T SLEEP.

Would you like to fall asleep faster, and sleep more deeply?

Would you like to wake up feeling more refreshed, ready to tackle the day?

What about having a greater sense of control over your cravings?

Have you ever woken up feeling hungover, even though you didn’t have any alcohol the night before, and wondered why?

Crappy sleep = hormones become dysregulated, increased cravings (usually for rapidly digesting carbohydrates), emotional instability, and reduced cognitive function.

Did you know that after just a single night of poor sleep, a metabolically healthy person is essentially pre-diabetic the next day?

The problem is, blue light from our screens tells our brains that its daytime, which prevents our pineal gland from secreting a hormone called melatonin that is responsible for (among other things) helping us wind down and sleep long and deeply.

I also am loving the sleep mask. Darkness (and cool room) a must. Also, try the Magnesium spray. I can’t tell if it’s working but I spray it anyway. I also got a pair for my kids cuz iPAD!

Chic Cruelty Free, Vegan Laptop Bags

March 15, 2018

OH YES! I just dumped my crappy Amazon-ordered laptop case and replaced it with this gorgeous, vegan beauty by SIGHT. ($88)

Other amazing benefits:

Sight uses high quality PU vegan leather

Sight is a cruelty-free brand

Water-resistant

Light-weighted

Free Shipping + Easy Returns 

A little back-story:

CEO Ellie, the always-on-the-road business traveler, found herself on numerous similar occasions: whether in coffee shop trying to reach her wallet in her handbag to pay for her coffee while placing her laptop bag on the counter awkwardly, or at airport having her arm squeezing the laptop bag tightly against her body while try to find the boarding pass in front of a line of antsy crowds. She decided something needs to be changed. Having two bags is simply redundant.

When she was doing research for solutions, she found that most of the fashion designers focus on aesthetics, but are not really thinking about a modern woman’s lifestyle. It seems that no designers are truly interested in design for those who are on the go. Ellie wants to design truly functional handbags for women like her – who not only want to look good but are also professionals with jobs. 

All of sight’s laptop bags are a refined result of delicate detailing for months, careful creation and marvelous craftsmanship by skilled artisans. Every handbag is designed with style, functionality, and comfort in mind. With artisans’ expertise and hard work, the handbags achieve the perfect look and designer quality.
