Valentines Day Gift Guide

Beautiful white roses for Valentines Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and since we don’t usually go all out for it, it always sneaks upon me. To get-ahead this year I wanted to share some of my favorite Valentines Day gift ideas. I’ve included ideas for her (A.K.A. what I’d love, ha!), and for him. We usually just have dinner together at a favorite place to eat, but I wouldn’t mind snagging of these gifts for him as well. Read on to see the full list!

Natural Skincare Review

Some of my favorites from my natural skincare reviews.

Late last year I decided that I wanted to move towards more natural skincare products as a part of my beauty routine. I’ve always leaned that way, but honestly didn’t know where to start. I had a few favorites, but really wanted to get into some and test them out. Between new brands reaching out, and my own shopping habit I discovered some products I haven’t heard of before, and rediscovered some old favorites. I’ve compiled all of them into a big list (grouped by type) and shared my thoughts.

Printable To-Do List

Free printable weekly to-do list

I don’t know if it’s just me this year, but I feel like the entire month of January has been one huge case of the Monday’s. At the start of the month I felt so energized and ready to take on so many huge goals I’ve had but the excitement faded a bit when life got in the way. I start a project and get interrupted only to forget where I was and having to recount each step along the way. It’s not productive.

I often keep a to-do list next to my computer, and even use my google calendar for some of my to-do’s, but nothing really satisfies me like crossing something off of an actual list. I do lots of work on a “week-by-week” basis, so I’ve created a weekly to-do list so that I can plan my week accordingly. I include my ‘must-do’ items at the top, and organize others by times of day or priority.

I’m sharing my printable to-do list with you today just in case you might need a little boost in productivity like I did. It prints in 5×7″ size, so you can either use 5×7″ paper, or print two on one piece of paper. If you get really fancy you can even print 4, 2 on each side. I like to keep mine on a small clipboard so I don’t lose it as easily.

You can download the file here.
