This keeps me accountable. As many of you saw on my gram, April had been a successful month for personal growth and development. Working out daily had pushed and propelled me for the next step of this beauty and wellness evolution.
This month of May, I have vowed to keep up with the maintenance and implementing a new and improved internal intake for my beauty from within, skin is in, soul is prime routine.
I am actively reaching for these sustainably sourced oils to balance and better my goals as I am officially swapping my usual go to and comforting sugary caffeinated drinks for something else like this. Wish me clean!
I hope you are inspired to get up and do something, anything to keep up with the health & wealth, which is you, Almond J
It’s no secret I am quite fond and currently propagating this wonderful plant 🍁 and has been a staple in my medicine and beauty apothecary garden.
I am starting the initial phase of my product and development for Almonds Apothecary! It has truly quite been a few years in the making and I am still in shock that I’ll be rolling this out this presently!
I am curating a beauty and wellness line first launching in my airbnbs on the big island of Hawaii, catering to my local and international guests.
Sustainability has been a top priority when building this project and sourcing out post consumer materials and ethically sourced ingredients has been indeed a joyful journey. Will share more in the next posts!
Here I have invested in Doterra essentials oils, a must have and convenient reach for my most desired and used blends especially when I am traveling and on the go. I have teamed up with a gang of goddesses and have been creating these unique blends via inspiration and intuition. The first few products will be an indulgence for the senses, decadent and drama free intoxicating body washes, end of the day scrubs and take the time to just be and lather up lotions and mists.
Relaxing Mindful Rituals up ahead, AJ
Yes, you read that right! I have partnered with Vital Proteins a sustainably-sourced nutrition product company, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. We do that by providing nourishing collagen and promoting our production of collagen – an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.
I stumbled upon my first product from the collagen based brand at my beauty studio in Waikiki, pressed for time and needing an immediate caffeine intake, I was quickly introduced by a colleague to this new brand we started carrying.
The Original Matcha Collagen flavor which is sourced from high-quality Japanese matcha green tea and grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide to ensure top quality and maximum nutritional benefit.
- Bioavailable: Collagen is easily digested and absorbed by the body.
- Rich in Antioxidants: Matcha contains 137 times the amount of antioxidants as other green teas.
- Beneficial: Helps to improve hair, skin, nails and joints, ligaments, tendons.
- Easy to Use: No complicated preparation required! Simply dissolve into an 8 oz. glass of cold or hot water.
The coffee alternative, loaded with caffeine and a seal of approval being vegan and clean? I was intrigued and more than a willing participant to the magic. *I also initially thought, with green tea as a featured ingredient, I feel healthier in this journey already.
My first attempt to just try the new elixir, mixed hot water, the taste comes up as a surprising milky and a slight hint of sweetness. I had previously envisioned to be a more bland or bitter combination but was really impressed. I am definitely adding a few more components to it like macadamia milk and dark chocolate powder because this is what the taste preferences command these days.
I invite you along this wealth in wellbeing journey with me. If you follow me on the gram, you know how dedicated I’ve been.
Now to sprinkle a little magic in between, AJ
