Here we are in 2021! There are a LOT of things I’m excited to move on from in 2020 (where do I even start…), but there’s one thing from 2020 I’m taking with me to 2021…
This post is in partnership with Grove Collaborative
…A daily routine of prioritized self care. In 2020 I started taking my own mental health and self care seriously because I was desperate for it!
After giving everything to my kids and family in quarantine and distance learning, I realized I was desperately in need of space and time for me (and that I was a way better parent and partner when I could carve out time for it).
Long walks in the evening were a regular after-dinner occurrence. Meditation and yoga became my decompression from the day. Candlelit baths were such a simple but needed luxury in the evenings.
How did/are you finding time for yourself?
I also discovered something beautiful in my self care routine a couple months ago: Peach Shampoo and Conditioner bars! Not only do they look amazing in your shower or bath (yay for creating a spa-like feeling at home when you can’t go to one), but they’re crazy good for the environment for a number of reasons:
First of all, each bar lasts at least 100 washes. 100!
Secondly, the shampoo bar replaces two bottles of shampoo, and the conditioner bars replaces 3 bottles of conditioner. Think of how much less plastic you’re throwing out there!
Last but not least, they work incredibly well and smell amaaazzzing (like a peach orchard!). My damaged hair is super soft afterwards-it really does compete with my very favorite hair products and all in a cute little bar form that’s 100% plastic free!
There are three different types of Peach hair bars- strengthening, moisturizing, and volumizing depending on your hair. There are even Peach body and facial bars too! I can’t wait to try them all. Peach products are artisan made in small batches so no two bars look exactly alike, and the manufacturing process uses very little energy minimizing air and water pollution. I love finding products like these that check all the boxes: great quality, good for the environment, good looking, and cost effective! Win win win WIN!
I’ve been a huge fan of Grove Collaborative for a long time, and I can honestly say I’ve never been disappointed. They curate the best in plant-based, sustainable products for the home and personal care. The prices rival those at your nearest store, and they even price match for VIP members. Other great services include things like scheduled deliveries (stay safe and shop from home!), texting services to add last minute items to an order, and rigorous standards for businesses supporting the environment and communities.
Lastly, everything is just gorgeous- the very best in quality and design.
The best news for you: First time Grove customers can get a free gift with purchase. I can’t wait to hear what you think of these Peach products.
What new habits from 2020 are you taking with you into 2021? Any self care routines that you have these days?
Thanks to Grove Collaborative for sponsoring this post. And a special thank you to my friend Lexi for letting me shoot in her gorgeous bathroom.
