Happy Wednesday, friends!
It’s another edition of LET’S LOOK!
If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). We have been doing this little linky party for years now, and it’s always one of my favorite posts each month because most of the topics are YOUR suggestions!
So far in 2023, here’s what we’ve “looked at”…
Now today was a reader request…LET’S LOOK IN OUR MEDICINE CABINETS!
I’m not exactly sure what people are wanting to see here, but I currently have two medicine cabinets.
Our first one is the “main” place where we store cough drops, Tylenol, daily meds, etc in our house.
Full disclaimer, after we got back from Park City, I went into my annual full “purge and clean” phase and one day in about 15 minutes, I tackled this disaster…
You guys, what a giant mess.
I found all sorts of junk/trash/expired products that clearly we had been too lazy to deal with at our house.
Bins were purchased, trash bags were pulled out, a baggie for any meds that needed to be dropped off my pharmacy in their “locked box” was brought out…it seriously did not take long at all, it just NEEDED TO BE DONE!
After a refresh…
….awwwwwwww! This photo was taken yesterday (not on January 11th when I took the original photo).
It still looks so nice and neat and organized. My heart gets SO HAPPY when I open it!
Now, a few things to note (just as an FYI). A few years ago (was it 2016?), I made my New Year’s Resolution to take more vitamins and supplements and get healthy. For those of you who were there during that time period, what ended up happening was that I read a book (of course) on supplements and came up with my own system…and it made me terribly sick. I was nauseous for basically nine months before I realized it was self-induced from my new “get healthy” plan.
So the following year (2017 maybe?), my Resolution was to do nothing and enjoy “normalcy”.
And I did.
And I’ve continued doing that until this year.
This year, I have added two things to my daily routine (and that’s literally it)…
I have read about, listened to people on podcasts discuss and researched this brand of collagen peptides, so I started incorporating two scoops a day into a glass of water about 6 weeks ago. So far, so good! I bought my first bottle on their website but the other day, I did notice that Sprouts sells it too.
I also found Cynthia Thurlow on Instagram last year. Cynthia and I follow each other, have exchanged pleasantries and then, I started listening to her super popular podcast, Everyday Wellness, she covers a multitude of topics for women, men and families concerning physiological health, mental health, sexual health…she has it all on there. She often talks about her own special Creatine so…
…I bought that at the beginning of the year and have been enjoying one scoop each morning as well. You can find it on her website HERE.
Those are both new additions to my “medicine cabinet” and pair well with my morning workout. Just an FYI 🙂 .
Now, my “official medicine cabinet”…
…is in our primary bathroom.
(Psssst: You can see all of the before and after pictures from this bathroom HERE where I cover how it looked pre-house flooded by the rain and post-constuction).
This would technically be our “medicine cabinet”, but I’ve always used it for…
…these items. This space is small and pretty easy to edit, so it always looks good. (Did you catch my post on easy organizing/cleaning yesterday?!)
I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory…
1: My favorite collection of scents for all seasons is from Replica. I LOVE THEM!!
4: I’m a huge fan of Shore Soap for moisturized skin!
5: Because I’m a scent girl, my two favorite Louis Vuitton perfumes as well 🙂
6: The only deodorant I use (I did TWO entire blog posts about natural deodorants!), a hair oil to prime and protect plus a body oil too.
Now, be truthful, when you visit someone’s home, do you look inside their medicine cabinet?! I’m super curious about this!
Coming up this year, just take a “look”…
Now, if you blogged along with us today and are also “looking at your medicine cabinet” please link up below! We love to see how you’re “looking at” different aspects of your life too! The link up is at the bottom of this post.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends! xx
