For those that have never heard of Arbonne, it is an amazing health + wellness company that creates Earth inspired products, A.K.A Clean + Simple! I have been a huge fan of this company for about 5 years now and would love to spread the word on products I use daily that help keep my body healthy inside and out!
Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Whatever you put on your skin, is absorbed INTO your body. Look at the ingredients of the products you use on your body currently. Do they contain healthy ingredients you trust going into your body? If not, please highly consider changing your skin regime, so that only clean and healthy products are being absorbed into your body.

You may notice that there are not many cosmetics listed. This doesn't mean I don't love their make-up. It's just that I focus more on the health of my skin, which means I don't usually need a lot of make-up to hide blemishes. My skin is NOT perfect! I still get the occasional pimple, like most normal women.
In no particular order, here is a list of my favorite Arbonne products!
ARBONNE PRODUCTS I LOVE:
*Products I use together weekly to treat my skin to a complete facial!
I hope my list was helpful or even eye-opening to you all! If you have any questions regarding any of Arbonne's products I would love to answer them for you. Everyone's skin and body is different, so make sure whatever product you are using that it is a healthy fit for you!
Sundays are my favorite day of the week to cook soups and stews. Mostly because I can take my time to chop, prep, and slow cook simple ingredients to eventually slurp up for an afternoon lunch, or an early dinner. Soups are super low maintenance to cook too, which makes the cooking on Sundays that much simpler. Just throw whole ingredients in a large pot, and let the heat do with work.
This Spiced Peanut and Sweet Potato Soup is a recipe I found in a year-old Clean Eating Magazine that I absolutely fell in love with. Not just because it's clean + simple, but also because it has peanut butter in it! This soup is also a great way to get nutritious veggies (Swiss chard + sweet potato) in your body, or even your kid's bodies (wink). So, on your next available Sunday, try adding this soup to your repertoire, and I have no doubt you will enjoy slurping this healthy and soulful soup up as well. Happy cooking!
