Three from Rayna

November 20, 2017

I wanted to share with you one of my favourite birthday gifts from this year. My birthday was way over a month ago and all this time I've been really enjoying this special gift. And all others as well! In the spirit of this gift I first have to say that I'm so grateful for every kind word & all the lovely gifts I received and that it's so hard for me to say I prefer one over the other. It's just that this one has been really on my mind each day, in the morning and before I fall asleep. I'm talking about a journal, The Five-minute Jornal that has been so kindly gifted to me by the lovely Rayna from Reina Organics. I'm also mentioning two more gorgeous products that Rayna offers in her shop. Her stunning shop filled with luscious green beauty products.

So what is The Five-minute Journal? It's "the simplest, most effective thing you can do every day to be happier". It's a journal for those of us who don't write journals. I tried writing down the things I'm grateful for before and I even have a designated notebook for it, but in time I stopped or I just don't do it consistently. But I absolutely love the structure this journal provides and I'm so proud of myself that I've been taking the time to write in it every day. Well I missed one day but that's ok. So the whole thing with this journal is that you take five minutes a day to reflect on the things you are grateful for, the things you wish to achieve that will make your day great and writing down your daily affirmation. You write these in the morning and in the evening you write three amazing things that happened and you reflect on the thing that could made your day even better. You simply answer all these questions and you're done. Practicing gratitude, living in the now, mindfulness, are one of the best things you can do in your life. Shifting your focus on the good and positive things can dramatically improve your happiness. It's not always easy to be grateful or positive but a journal like this can at least make you feel that way for a few minutes a day. In the last year or so I've been really into all these things and I really couldn't have been more happy with this gift. Thank you so much Rayna.<3 Get the journal here.
The next product I've been really into is a candle, the Woodlot candle in Cascadia*. You may or may not know that I love walking in the woods. Forests always calm me down and I just love being in them breathing all that fresh air, admiring all their beauty and just feeling so good. Well, this candle smells just like forest! A beautiful evergreen forest. Love. Straight from the jar the scent can be a bit too much but after lighting it up the rooms fill with the gorgeous aroma of Fir, Cedarwood, Pine, Eucalyptus, Sandalwood & Sweet Orange Essential Oils. The woodsy fresh scent is so good! The candle is of course petroleum free (here is a little bit about that), it contains Organic Coconut Wax and Soy Wax (non-gmo). I also adore the recyclable glass jar and the minimalist & chic design. Get it here.
Another product I've been swooning over is the Leahlani Skincare Citrus + Citrine Regenerating Toner aka CiCi (short review here). It's interesting how you can really see a difference in your skin when you stop using a product and that is exactly what happened when I started testing out some other toner. Which btw is good but certainly not as good as CiCi is. Like I said before, my skin responds so, So good to aloe vera based toners and this one is no exception! It has many more wonderful ingredients that really hydrate my skin + I find it subtly brightening. Also the scent, oh my the invigorating scent! It's filled with Neroli and other lovely citruses. AND each bottle houses a Citrine gemstone that has been purified in the Hawaiian sea and sun. Citrine emits a strong vibration of joy, prosperity, energy and abundance. Citrine also helps to clear negative energy. This toner is formulated for mature and oily skin and I highly recommend it. Find it on Reina Organics or directly from Leah at Leahlani Skincare.

Wishing you all a beautiful Monday!

With love,

Jana xx
