We received the Maleficent bag and cosmetic brush set pictured above (Amazon Affiliate link provided here for your convenience.). Lizzy K immediately laid claim to the bag! It’s lightweight and thin with a reinforced bottom and straps, large enough for all the make up a girl could want, including a hair brush and purse sized spray.

Summer Favorites

As Summer ends, I want to share some of my favorite products and brands. Shout out to Lokai and IvoryElla for producing some of my favorite things in the entire world. If you don’t already know about these two fabulous brands, they are both online. When you make a purchase on Ivory Ella, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the foundation Save The Elephants, which is an organization that supports the environment in which Elephants live.I am obsessed with an app called Soundcloud. This app makes it easy to find amazing music for free! It is pretty obvious that I am in love and own a watermelon pillow from Brandy Melville, a tapestry, and a buddha statue. Shoutout to Birchbox for making me smile every month with new products that I try out all in one day. Okay well bye for now! 🙂

My Vionics #SoulStory

Recently, I have been having tedious knee pains when doing anything that requires putting weight on them. At the start of my knee pain, it was manageable. As it continued, it became more and more painful.

See Lizzy say it in this video clip!

One day, my mom approached me with the concept of Vionics. Vionics are a brand of footwear that are shaped in a way to lift parts of your foot to promote healthy walking. The inside of the sandals support my feet and help me walk properly.

At this point of pain, I was willing to try anything to help relieve my knee pains. The first time I put them on I was immediately surprised at how they felt different than other shoes, but not in a bad way at all. They felt super comfprtable. They’re cute enough to wear all Summer, too.

Within two minutes of wearing my new sandals, I could already feel less pressure on my knees. I cannot begin to describe how impressed I am with the comfort my feet feel on a day to day basis thanks to Vionics. Ever since I have been blessed with my very own pair, they have been my go to shoe. My knee pain is now, merely a memory!

Here’s an Amazon affiliate link to the sandals I received (except of course, mine are white). They are called the Tide II Thong sandals. They cost about $65. Since these worked so well for me, my Mom actually ordered a pair for herself, too! She bought the Florianas in Snake. I think they cost $80. They look kind of green in person and are cute for her. Here’s a picture of those from Amazon, too.

This is what happens to your body if you drink warm honey-lemon water in the morning

I love lemons, but tend to only turn to lemon water when I’m under the weather. This post has me thinking this would be a good habit to acquire! What do you say?

This is what happens to your body if you drink warm honey-lemon water in the morning

Adding lemon to water not only quenches thirst better than any other beverage, but it also nourishes our body with vitamins, minerals and trace elements which we absolutely need. Lemon with water can be considered the best natural energy booster. When we wake up in the morning, our bodily tissues are dehydrated and are in need of water to push out toxins and rejuvenate the cells. In other words, this homemade “lemonade” helps eliminate internal toxins, regulating proper kidney and digestive tract functions by forcing them to work as smoothly as possible.
