Simple Steps To Cleaning Up After Being Sick

It’s the middle of March, and we just got hit with what is (hopefully) our last snowstorm. We have been receiving the most “interesting” weather forecasts. I have my sandals AND my snow boots on ready standby. I never know which one we are going to need!. This crazy weather also brings another potentially annoying fact about life. Getting sick! It’s annoying, inconvenient and not to mention slightly painful. Last week I came down with a cold, which was fine. I slowed down a bit, but I was still working and doing my normal daily routine. Then all of a sudden I got hit with the stomach flu, and it has pretty much wiped me out until about yesterday. My husband came down with it a few days after I did, which means that we had a 100% bad germ infestation in the house. So now that we are on the mend, everything should be good right!? NOPE.

Live Clean Shampoo Review | Vegan/Cruelty Free Hair Care

I have NEVER loved a shampoo in my life. Until now. As I’ve gotten older, I have gradually changed the way I do a lot of things. One of those things is watching what I use on my body. Heavy chemicals can also seep into your system via the skin. They have been known to lead to anything from rashes and irritated skin, all the way up to a few such as Parabens and certain fragrances being a leading contributor to cancer.That’s why when someone recommended Live Clean Shampoo’s I was super excited to try them out. Not only are they a lot better for our bodies, they’re also budget-friendly! Ranging from $4-$7CAD.

Happy belated Valentine’s Day dolls, I hope you had as wonderful of a Valentine’s Day as I did. Yesterday was quite an exhausting day! A sushi lunch date and then my husband and I spent the rest of the day in the theater watching 2 movies. it was so fun, but as you know fun always comes with a price. so today, let’s talk about how to take care of yourself after Valentine’s Day is over.

(Before we begin, I need to let you know that I do have affiliate links in this post. However, I adore these products and have used them for quite some time!)

Now if you’re like me you probably got up early in the morning yesterday (if you had a day date)  just so that you could prepare and get ready for your Valentine. We’re talking hair, makeup, probably trying on at least a dozen outfits and shoes….if you’re anything like me. Then, of course, giving up and going casual (It always seems to happen that way). but that’s not what today’s post is all about. Today’s post is about pampering yourself after Valentine’s Day is over, and you’re exhausted and need to recover.
