1. PRODUCTS & SERVICES
I’m a constant work in progress, but these things have been ESSENTIAL in my journey to improve in the values of the blog!
GROWTH & HAPPINESS
5 Minute Journal
The 5 Minute Journal is the EASIEST and most dependable way to make sure that you’re practicing gratitude and setting up intentions for the day. It is split into two easy sections for morning and night. I’ve LOVED it and will continue to buy it.
The Productivity Planner
The Productivity Planner is from the same company as the journal above, and I also use it daily! It’s been a game-changer in my productivity and how I approach the day! It has built-in prioritizing to make sure I’m putting first things first and achieving my goals.
This meditation app saved me when my first two were little. I never would have learned to meditate on my own, and I highly recommend investing in the app for a variety of guided meditation options. It’s perfect if you need some stress relief or focus. Try it HERE.
*Not an affiliate link, I am just obsessed with this APP!
QuiFit Gallon Sport Water bottle
This water bottle is 64 oz. It has motivational labels that tell you exactly how much more to drink. I love that it’s so direct. I can see how much farther I need to go and whether I’m actually drinking water (or if I’m lying to myself).
100 Days of Real Food Cookbook
When we began cooking a more whole foods diet, this cookbook and accompanying blog were EVERYTHING. It continues to be the guided foundation for much of what I cook today, and I now have her other two cookbooks as well. Check it out HERE.
2. BOOKS WORTH READING
I’m an avid reader, and of everything I’ve read, THESE are some that dramatically touched my mind and heart. If you’re looking for inspiration or to learn something new, I highly recommend them!
Also, many of these can be found at the library!

The Morning Miracle
The Morning Miracle gives the 6 must-do practices in the morning to supercharge growth and clarity.
Since reading this book I’ve also joined the Miracle Morning Community group on Facebook. It’s a wonderful place with inspiring individuals.
Tools of Titans
Tools of Titans is a huge repertoire of interviews with successful people. It covers books they love, habits that have helped them, and so much more.
It’s hands down one of the best books for studying what makes some people remarkable.
The Latte Factor
This super quick read is a story of a young woman lost in the rat race of living paycheck to paycheck. She meets new people with different perspectives on money and uses key lessons to live a much more abundant life. It’s an inspiring story about living life on your own terms.

If you are serious about blogging, you need to start AT LEAST with the basic Tailwind plan.
Tasty Pins is a $29 plugin that makes pinning to Pinterest with descriptionsa snap.
I can write my pin description right on my blog post and I know that it will be under every image a person shares from my blog. I also love that I can have multiple hidden pin images that readers can choose from.
CREATE AND GO PINTEREST COURSE
The Create And Go Pinterest Traffic Avalanche course took some time to decide on. BUT I AM SO GLAD I DID!
I’ve looked at so much free Pinterest advice online, but this course had ideas and tips that I hadn’t seen before. And most importantly, it got me to look at my website as a business, which I wasn’t doing before. Check it out HERE.
The legality of a blog is something I KNOW NOTHING about. I knew that I needed to be protected, but I didn’t know how. And I felt that even if I took hours to figure it out, I could be doing it wrong.
So I invested in The Legal Bundle from A Self Guru. It was thorough and only took 10 minutes to set up on the site. Now I know I can sleep easy at night!
