This Journey

040

There is a lot of packing going on at my house right now.  Packing for a wedding weekend in Athens, Georgia.  Packing for vacation next week.  Packing up our house, so we can move 3 days after vacation.  Phew!  You won’t hear me complaining though, because these are all GOOD things …but oh, how quickly I can forget that when certain aspects are trying!

One of my favorite quotes is something Sandra Bullock once said – she is talking about all of the hard moments in life.  She says ‘And in between those moments- you savor, savor, savor.’

I love that and I always try to remind myself to savor and be present.  When I actually stop to consider more than what’s directly in front of me, that’s when I find gratitude and beauty.

My companions that will most certainly be re-packed along my next few stops are these necessities from One Love Organics.  As if the blush packaging and name itself weren’t enough reasons for me to love this brand – we are also neighbors!  You guys, One Love is located in Georgia!  That makes my heart beat a little faster!  They are living the good life in the beautiful + quaint beach town of St. Simon’s Island and I couldn’t love them more.  Easy Does It Cleanser is my every day face cleanser.  It is incredibly gentle and doesn’t leave my face dry.  It also suds slightly and I feel like it removes everything my makeup remover left behind.  I love it.  A tiny bit, lathered on my face morning and night.

Both of the products shown here are travel size.  I am always a big fan of travel size.  Besides the obvious reason (easy to transport), it provides a great way to try out new products.  I especially wanted to start small with the Skin Savior Multi-Tasking Wonder Balm.  I just wasn’t sure what to think about a ‘balm.’  I didn’t know if I needed it.  What exactly is it for?  Well, that’s kind of the point.  It’s for everything.  And it really is a wonder.  I put this balm just about everywhere.  Namely,  I use it for extra dry patches on my face and body.  It’s super glowy; it kind of melts into an oil-like consistency when you apply it.  Which is very different from what I expected- I thought it was going to be like applying lip balm everywhere. But it’s not.  It’s great for dry hands + cuticles and I also put it on my lips at night.  The small size is perfect for travel because you never know how your skin will react when traveling.

This Sugarboo Designs Canvas Bag is always in my handbag.  I keep my makeup in it, but it’s also a great reminder of who I am.  I want to find beauty and cultivate beauty where I can in life.

Ok, back to packing!  And savoring!

xoxo, Lauren
