REST & RELAXATION | My Current Candle Obsession

IMG_5659.jpg

It's time for some rest & relaxation, so breathe easy my loves. I wanted to do a short post on one of my favorite recovery activities and my current obsession I have with the new Skylar Body candles (keep reading for a discount code).

Training hard can be very taxing on your body and really wear it down. Hard training takes a huge toll on your central nervous system and sometimes you just really need a break. So even though training is important…recovery plays a HUGE role in your progress as well. Every workout you are breaking down the muscle fibers in your body so it is key to give your body time to recover and rebuild from all of the hardwork you are putting it through. 

One of my favorite things to do when I feel like I am getting worn down is take a nice, hot bubble bath! I love to light a candle, fill my tub with epsom salts, essential oils (lavender and peppermint are my goto), and bubbles...I mean lots! Then really just have a few quiet moments to disconnect from the world and allow my body to soak up all the goodness.

Next time you feel like you need a mental & physical break, take a bubble bath!


My current home accessory obsession is my new candle from Skylar Body in the scent, Arrow! It has a natural earthy smell that is not to overpowering but really fills a room. I don't tend to like floral or fruity scents so this was right up my alley. It was the perfect relaxing scent for my bubblebath!

I am all about good smelling candles (or really anything to make my house smell good) but what makes these even better is how clean they are for your home because what is the point of a good smelling home that is toxic?! Skylar Body candles are handmade in LA with soy-coconut wax and completely safe and natural ingredients. They are eco-friendly, cruelty-free & vegan and paraffin & phthalate free. Not to mention so aesthetically appealing, because that matters. 

If you are on the hunt for a new amazing candle…I highly suggest the Skylar Body brand! I wouldn’t share it, if I didn’t love it. CLICK HERE to check out the Skylar Body line and use the code SKYLARCANDLE for 10% your order. I recommend trying the ARROW candle scent! 

Tootles for now and have a great week!

POSTS YOU SHOULD READ THIS WEEK

Hello there blaruefit fam! I hope your week is off to a great positive and productive start. I know one of my goals this week is really dedicating my time to the things that bring my joy...and writing this post is definitely one of them!

Is anyone else guilty of signing up for an endless amount of emails and blogs that you have every intention of reading and then end up just skipping over and moving them to your trash folder? I am the worst when it comes to this. I always see websites and blogs that I find interesting and then never actually read the content. So...I was thinking how can I cut out all of the nonsense and actually read the articles I find most important, wouldn't that be nice? Well...I am here to make your reading a little more carefree and effective. I have decided to do a post weekly highlighting some of my favorite articles that I see from my top sites and blogs that I follow. These articles could be anything under the sun (I have lots of interests), but none the less they are the posts I think are interesting and definitely worth the read while enjoying your morning coffee.

So, without further ado here are my top posts that you should read this week. Just click the titles to take you to the article and enjoy! 


7 Habits For A Mindful, Stress-Free Morning Routine - MBG

This may be an older article but the concept of how important your morning routine is on setting the tone for your entire day still holds so true. I personally am NOT a morning person, so for me making the morning time stress free and enjoyable is so important and really helps me get my day off to a good start (and I tend to be overall more productive). The 7 habits are all things that are great to try to incorporate into your morning. My advice would be each day if you can get 3 out of the 7 you are off to a great start!

 

9 Ways to Measure Success That Have Nothing to Do With Money - Greatist

HELLO I needed to read this! Maybe it is because right now I am definitely a ballin' on a budget chick, but this article was definitely a huge reminder for me on what success actually is. There are so many ways to measure success in your life, it is not ALL about the bank account.

12 FOODS TO ACHIEVE A FLAT STOMACH & HOW TO DEFEAT BLOATING - Tropeaka

Tropeaka is not only one of my favorite products to use they also post great informational content about health, nutrition, and fitness. Expect to see lots of articles in the future from them. I can personally say I suggest a handful of foods on this list to all of my clients because they are great for digestion and nutrition (which helps achieve that flat tummy we are all searching for)! Some of my favorites on this list are berries, ginger, and fermented veggies.


I am going to leave you with those three articles to enjoy this week! Remember, if you give them a read let me know your thoughts. I would love to discuss with you. :)

Have a fantastic week!
