A) The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: How to Stay Emotionally Healthy and Spiritually Alive in the Chaos of the Modern World: 

I feel like I’m the last person on the planet to read this, but if you haven’t picked it up, I cannot recommend this book enough! I have already changed things in my daily life because of this book, and it might be a read every January book for me!” – Jamie

B) Candle 

“Trader Joe’s has these amazing candles for $4. The scent I’m loving right now is Peach and Black Tea. The guy at the check-out told me they FLY off the shelves, so if you stop by… grab multiples! I also love the Mango Citrus Scent, but it hasn’t been in stock at my local TJ’s lately.” – Angie

C) Unreal Snacks

“I recently got a Costco card and have loved buying things there that @flavcity recommends! As someone with a sweet tooth, I’m now hooked on Unreal’s Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars, which taste almost exactly like a Mounds bar.” – Amanda

D) Crazy Candles Volcano 

“One of my favorite scents is the volcano candle that Anthropology made so popular. But, the price is more than my budget can always splurge. These diffuser oils have made my volcano scent dreams come true. Just a few drops and the delicious smell fills the room. It’s a delightful scent, especially during these hot months.” – Lyndsey

E) To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers and Liturgies for Parents

“I love just reading through these modern liturgical prayers as a new mama. They have encouraged my heart, made me laugh, and challenged me in new ways. I also now give this as a gift to every new mama friend” – Ali

A) Felt Purse Bag Organizer 

“I love that this product helps my purses and totes stay organized as I am on-the-go” – Uina

B)Toiletry Bag 

This is my all time favorite toiletry bag! It fits everything I need and it has a hanger that you can easily use in the shower to quickly access your stuff without having to remove everything and potentially forget things behind. The front pocket is big enough to fit all my make-up as well” – Uina

C)BlackGirlSunscreen

I love this sunscreen because it gives my face a glow and keeps it moisturized all day” – Ashley

D) Juices and Botanics

“I love these products! It’s a black owned business in Dallas.” – Ashley

E) Leakproof Silicone Travel Bottles 

“I have been traveling since I was 18 years old, and the one thing that annoys me is the occasional leaking beauty/bath products. I have found the answer to this annoyance! These beautiful silicone bottles are perfect for my bath product needs, easy to fill, and pack perfectly without leaking.” – Lyndsey

F) ILIA – Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 

“This product is clean and it leaves a great dewy finish. I love it because it’s light when you want a naked face and it also has SPF. They’re blush stick is amazing too. I don’t wear any other makeup than this.” – Ali

G) SEPIA tumblr 

I LOVE my glassware from here. Functional, simple, and well made.” – Ali

C) Love 41 – Suede Slippers

“If you know me, you know I always have shoes on my feet. I hate being barefoot, and I LOVE slippers! These slippers from Love41 were gifted to me this year and I haven’t taken them out of my suitcase yet. Because I travel a lot, they stay there! They are compact, yet comfy!” – Jamie

D) Aero Print Shorts

“So, I’ve been working out this month more than normal (could be all the pasta and wine from Italy!) and these are some shorts I’m loving. They fit perfectly, aren’t crazy expensive, and I’m thinking they are helping me walk faster!!” – Jamie

E) The Cloudies

“The slides, cloudies in oat latte have changed my life. I wear them all the time around my house, going to the pool, or if my feet just need some relief— they literally feel like you’re standing on clouds.” – Lyndsey

F) Oversized T-Shirts

“I am a lover of oversized tees and these are amazing. I have several colors and pairs of the sweatshorts too” – Ali

“Obsessed with these playsuits – I have multiple. This is where I get all my statement pieces from. It’s just fun!! And woman owned.” – Ali

A) Bobby Parish – @FlacCity 

“I don’t remember when or how I came across Bobby Parish (@flavcity) on Instagram, but he’s now my go-to for information as I grocery shop. He helps you understand ingredient and nutrition labels, and he even has an app for scanning products in store to determine if something is “Bobby Approved.” – Amanda

B) Handmade Dried Flower Bookmark

“I love how beautiful these bookmarks are! The dried flowers make them so unique. I don’t need them all so I kept two and gave the rest to my friends at Bible study.” – Uina

C) Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker

The Breville Grind Control lets you grind and brew all in the same coffee making. Plus I can make a pot of coffee, or grind and brew just enough for one cup. This coffee maker has upped our coffee game. I love this coffee maker.” – Jamie

D) Peaches and Cream Recipe

“Peaches and Cream. It’s that simple. Follow THIS RECIPE but instead of heavy cream, I use Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla. You’re welcome. The best summertime dessert ever. I also made this favorite granola recipe this past Saturday morning and topped the peaches and cream with it. Do yourself a favor and SAVE THIS GRANOLA RECIPE. It tastes amazing and smells just as good when you make it.” – Angie
