We are amped to be planning our wedding! We already found our venue, I encourage you to check it out here if you are planning a Kansas City wedding.

Here are a few of our engagement photos that we had taken this past weekend by my soon to be sister-in-law and her Adventure Session + Elopement Photography business, Between the Pine.

 

How incredible a job did she do!? We love them so much! More to come–and I will publish them over on my Instagram page.

Okay, now onto Feel More Gooder stuffs! I’ve been really into simplifying my routine lately, getting rid of unecessary stuff and packing it with only the really good stuff.

Here’s what I’m loving + what made the cut!

Laird Superfood

Laird Superfood Coffee Creamer

Code FEELMOREGOODER for you to save 20% over at Laird Superfood

Why I love it:

This gluten free, non-dairy, keto-friendly, paleo-friendly coffee creamer powder mixes effortlessly into hot coffee and makes it more of a meal. It helps your body assimiliate the caffeine steadily over time as it digests the fat in the creamer. It also tastes delish, gives me some good fats to fuel my day and elevates my mood with potent superfoods.

Ancient Nutrition.jpg

Ancient Nutrition’s Fermented Women’s Multivitamin

Code FEELMOREGOODER for you to save 20% over at Ancient Nutrition

Why I love it:

Most of us are lacking vitamins and minerals in our diet, no matter how good we eat. In 2019, the soil quality that our food grows in is nowhere near what it used to be. So, multivitamins help fill in the gaps.

This multi by Ancient Nutrition is especially impressive, contains folate instead of folic acid (I always look for that) and the fermented nature makes it ideal for your microbiome + gut health.

Now Foods.jpg

Now Foods Vegan Vanilla Protein

Code JESNOW10 to save $10 on orders of $40 or more over at NOW Foods

Why I love it:

Clean, tasty, helps me recover + keep healthy & beautiful muscle on my frame. I like mixing it with a coconut/almond milk blend and it’s creamy and delicious!

Jungalow.jpg

The Jungalow Home + Lifestyle Brand

Why I love it:

Founder of The Jungalow, Justina Blakeney is a funky, free spirited interior designer with a love for plants and merging jungle vibes with bohemian funk. We just bought our first home about 6 months ago, so we have had fun Jungalow-ing our new space!

Rebl Jane Stress Fighter Supplement Review

With an active (sometimes nonstop-feeling) lifestyle of CrossFit, drinking heaps of coffee, outdoorsing with our black lab Kona, my energy levels get expended and my adrenal health I’m sure suffers at times.

Also, life has been extra full lately. All the good stuff, but nonetheless, demanding a lot from me. We recently became homeowners for the first time, got engaged, are planning a budget-friendly wedding, started a new full-time position for a start up coffee shop here in Kansas City, all in addition to trying to keep myself healthy, fit and our dog active and happy.

It’s a lot. I don’t always get enough sleep and I often am poor at managing my stress + keeping my mind clear.

I know that I can’t expect my body to be go-go-go all the time without repercussions. Eventually, I will bonk.

Howeverrrrrr, it’s so dang cool that there is an herbal product like this one that can help support my body so that I can keep up this pace and not bonk.

I’ve been a big fan and advocate for herbal healing and using herbs to supplement and elevate a healthy lifestyle for many years now. I prefer that approach over taking anything artificial, hands-down. Exploring natural methods is always my first route.

I’m so glad to have been introduced to this product, Stress Fighter, and company Rebl Jane because sometimes this populated world of supplements is challenging to navigate. It’s tough to find products that truly apply to your own goals and body. Also, not all supplements are created equally, most are full of artificial crap, and there is a sea of them; many of which using marketing tactics to convince you that there product is good.

Just like with any other supplement that contains real + natural + pure ingredients, the fact is not a drastic reaction where you feel it immediately. Natural herbal healing is slow, true and effective. The upside is that it is safe, free of adverse side effects and achieves actual healing verses being a band-aid on your health issues. Rebalancing your hormones and body’s stress response takes some time if you want to achieve balance and feeling truly good.

I’ve been taking this product as directed and I am about a month in. Going along with the aforementioned life happs for us, my plate is probably as full as it’s ever been. It has been a perfect time to test out a supplement that helps me deal with stress.

Stress Fighter contains natural plants (herbs) that are adaptogenic in nature. If you aren’t yet familiar with adaptogenic foods, GET FAMILIAR! Adaptogenic foods and those that help your body adapt to stress and maintain a healthy state of balance/homeostasis.

Why should you care? Well, because a body that is less burdened by stress is healthier. Your hormones levels with self-regulate more efficiently, your sleep will be more fulfilling, unicorns will run through your house while doing your laundry. Okay, maybe not that last part, but you get the point. Lowering stress makes EVERYTHING better for you. Your health will skyrocket if you master your stress-fighting toolbox.

So, what most people probably want to know about a product they’re interested in is…..”does it work?” or “do you notice a difference?” or “would you buy more when you run out?”

My answers to those:

-Yes. Also, it’s one piece of a puzzle that also includes movement, a healthy mind and good nutrition (focusing on anti-inflammatory foods)

-Absolutely. It feels like a secret (health) weapon.

-Yes, I would.

Just like any other supplement, I believe that the key is to take it in addition to drinking plenty of water, listening to your body and adding it into an already-mindful way of eating and fueling your body. I don’t treat my body like crap and then expect one supplement to solve all of my problems. I truly treat it like a supplement that can add to and elevate my already healthy lifestyle. Doing it that way, I can tell it works well. It gives me an added edge. I can keep up my fast pace, but still feel vital, capable and healthful.

Discount Code + Ambassadorship for Palm Beach Athletic Wear

i tend to live like i won’t be around tomorrow. i overdo things. i exhaust myself. but it’s me.

and while thinking about the end of the road, i think about the beginning. my beginning was in a town called Jupiter, Florida. Years after living there and being in the thick of creating content + blogging, i learned about Kristen of Palm Beach Athletic Wear & Yoga and all of her awesomeness. she’s a toooootal babe + badass woman.

this outfit if from her shop! they’re 3 pieces from JIVA Active : Aspen Flex Capri, Jiva Scoop Tank, and the Power Fit Bra.

the Capri has a HIGH rise (if it’s high on my torso, then it’s high, bc i am all legs—i wear a 36” jean inseam), the Power Fit Bra is low/medium support on my frame (best for yoga, walking, mobility practice) and the tank will definitely be a staple during the summer.

Boulder Canyon Potato Chips: New Packaging + Flavors

This post is sponsored by Boulder Canyon Foods.

About Boulder Canyon:

Boulder Canyon is proud to be among the natural food innovators who strongly believe in using real food ingredients to make better snacks. In 1994, two brothers, Don and Jay Poore, had an idea for a better mouse trap.  In this case, it was a potato chip that would fly in the face of convention to prove that consumers would be willing to pay a little more for an extraordinary snacking experience. Today, we have over 30 unique better-for-you snacks with fewer, better and minimally processed ingredients. We make these with unique oils to fit your taste and health preferences. Next time you’re in your local grocery or natural foods store, pick up a bag of Boulder Canyon snacks and flip it over. On the ingredient list, you will most often find three, maybe four ingredients. For instance, “Potatoes, Avocado Oil, Sea Salt,” is all there is to find within our Avocado Oil Canyon Cut™ chips, but we’d wager a bet that it’s a snack experience unlike any you’ve had before.

My Experience:

the rad team at Boulder Canyon is on a mission (+with fresh new packaging) to inspire you to FOLLOW YOUR PATH.
i mean, if this doesn’t align with how my life has gone, iuno what does. FER SHER i have taken the path less traveled (at times with small amounts of logic and heaps of resistance from others) in my life. which reminds me of a fave quote: “if you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. your own path you make with every step you take. that’s why it’s your path.” -Joseph Campbell
Boulder Canyon is a brand I value for their commitment to non-GMO ingredients, sickkk flavors and usage of clean oil choices (not inflammatory in nature like canola or soybean oil)
they sent me 9 different flavors to try! the Buffalo Ranch and Malt Vinegar (both pictured) are the two i’m most excited about.
with all of the paleo meals we prepare at home, I’m always craving a crunch, and that’s what these chips satisfy for me. The flavor, the texture after entire mouthfeel make me feel like I’m splurging; but with clean ingredients, there’s no guilt.
checkity check them out over at their Instagram page for more deets on their freshie fresh new line up!
