Manic Monday

"It's just another Manic Monday, I wish it were Sunday...cause that's my fun day..." You know you are singing it now! Welcome to Manic Monday week 2! I'm kind of all over the place with my picks for this week.

First up is my favorite go-to book when it comes to my very enthusiastic attempts to live more naturally through beauty, diet, and cleaning products.  I (Jack) love Jessica Alba's company, The Honest Company. My family has transitioned over to almost all of her products. Jessica Alba's book, The Honest Life, is packed full of information, suggestions, and ideas. The best part is, they all make sense for real, everyday life. I don't have the time (or interest) to make my own lipstick or face wash, so this book is totally my speed. It's a great bedside table book and easy to reference when needed. If you are interested in making even the tiniest changes, this book would be great for you too!

Let me start by saying, I (Jack) do not sell Rodan+Fields, so this product celebration does not benefit me in any way. One of my closest girlfriends started selling this line, and based on her skin change alone, I had to try the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller in combination with the Night Renewing Serum. I can't give you all of the technical details about how or why this little thing works, BUT IT DOES! I do know it's surgical grade needles on the roller and it's a "hurts so good" type situation when I roll it on my face. You can read more about it here. Although the company doesn't technically endorse this, I roll that little magical wand on the stretch marks on my stomach (pregnancy souvenirs) and cellulite on my thighs. I've been using it for 2 months now and can really see a difference. I'm not sure why it hasn't given me a flat stomach or 6-pack abs, but whatever. Less fine lines, wrinkles, and improved stretch mark appearance makes this thing a keeper! I. Love. It.


I (Kris) drink lots of coffee, diet coke, and red wine and swear by this toothpaste. I have used it for years and I feel it keeps my teeth white and helps prevent them from stains. It come in several flavors but I love the clean feeling of the baking soda flavor. Try it out! I swear you will fall in love.  


What kind of pillow case do you sleep on? I switched to silk pillow cases a few years ago and I NEVER wake up with crease marks on my face anymore. Jack sent me a selfie the other morning and she had a crease mark across her cheek! I don't even know what we were texting about, but my only response was "do you not sleep on silk pillow cases???!!!". I will be sending her some ASAP :)  It's not only better for your face but it helps your hair not get all tangled up too. Just a suggestion, if you are a cotton kinda gal then keep on sista! 

Happy Manic Monday, ladies! Have a great week!
