here are a few of the latest novelties greasing my squeaky wheels.


ok. typically i’m good at always having my toolkit loaded; although not a costco member i do backstock most of my household and beauty items so that i’m never in a crispy crunch running around the house searching for paper towels {which we are only allowed to use in an emergency-but that’s a whole ‘nother post.}

so it was very unlike me to run out of face soap two weeks ago, where i found myself using shampoo, which we know NEVER gets any love around here, instead.

not up to schlepping it to the mall, i scurried over to my grocery store {mother’s market} and discovered the best wash for my dirty mug…..and my face.

john masters organics rose foaming wash is such a great find. just the scent alone is worth buying. but it’s the solid, sudsy lather that i find so damn satisfying when i wash the day off of my face. i know! i know! i know the non-lathering soaps get me just as clean, but psychologically i want to see bubbles damn it.

bubbles aplenty, all organic, AND the bottle is recyclable. yay me.


another new obsession is definitely a product i now slot in the holy grail category. soapwalla’s deodorant cream is hands and feet down the best deodorant on the market.

i hope most of you are like me and wary of mainstream deodorants and anti-perspirants. the ingredients in most of these products read like a who’s who at a disease causing toxin and chemical convention. the aluminum and parabens that make up most deodorants have been linked to breast cancer, alzheimer’s disease, and kidney cancer.

i’ll pass.

soapwalla is so natural  {also vegan & cruelty free} it’s safe enough to eat. but please don’t, that would be kind of gross. made with vegetable powders, clays, peppermint and tea-tree oils, this easy to apply “frosting” is colorless, keeps you dry, and makes your underarms smell like they went to the dentist even after your sweatiest bikram session. for both men and women, you need to stop what you are doing and immediately order this stuff now.


and i cannot get enough of this song! damn, mister timberlake you git me. my classes are certainly going to be getting a lot of this tune. 

save for the song, all of these products and many other recommendations are on my luvocracy site. if you haven’t signed up for luvocracy yet, check it out. it’s the shopper’s guide to pinterest. i was even interviewed by them last month. i’m officially a “fitness pundit,”—–how cool is that? 

so there it is: my mid-march madness picks. 

what are you currently diggin’ m’loves?
