I love a good mousse, especially when its a chocolate one, but the thought of making it puts me off massively. If you’ve ever read a recipe for mousse its so ‘faffy’ (totally a word) as you need to use eggs and whip and blah blah..nobody got time for that. So when I came across […]

5 Tips to Motivate You on a Monday

Happy Monday Gals…or in some cases ugh, it’s Monday already?! Getting motivated at the start of the week can be hard. Here are 5 tips to help get you in the mood to embrace Monday.

  1. Start From the Right Perspective – So it’s Monday…that doesn’t have to mean doom and gloom for having to return to the grind of the workweek. Think of Monday as a fresh start. A new opportunity to achieve your goals and do great things!A photo by Aki Tolentino. unsplash.com/photos/Wd5sfFBe4Ng
  2. Work the Body – There’s no better way to kick off a new week than to wake up the senses and put your body to work. Take the time to get a morning workout in to get the blood pumping and start the flow of adrenaline to catapult you into the day.m3.jpeg
  3. Work the Mind – Working the body is all fine and good but don’t forget about your fabulous mind. Not sure about you, but after a weekend of Netflix and drinks the mind can get a little rusty. Sharpen yours with a good read to start off the week.m7
  4. Feel the Music – Ok, let’s be real…MUSIC IS LIFE. Music sets the tone of how your day will flow. If you want a relaxing stress free flow for your day put on some Adele or Sade. If you’re out to kick Monday in the ass go for some Beyonce or Rihanna and show Monday who’s boss!alice-moore-192521
  5. Spread the Love – Sometimes motivating others will naturally motivate you. Making others feel good is powerful…you should try it.m

How do you motivate yourself on Monday?

Do You Think Dirty? You Should

Hey Gals, have you heard of the Think Dirty App. Believe me, it’s not what you think. This app is seriously one of the best things I’ve come across for those of us who care what goes into the products we put on and in our bodies.

portrait-of-a-girl-1344645_1280

The Think Dirty® app is the easiest way to learn about the potentially toxic ingredients in your cosmetics and personal care products. Just scan the product barcode and Think Dirty will give you easy-to-understand info on the product, its ingredients, and shop cleaner options. How cool is that!

Here’s a quick video on how the whole process works.

Check out Thinkdirtyapp.com to start your journey to healthier beauty products.

We use this app when putting together our Goody Gal boxes to make sure that we’re sourcing the best so that you get the best. Order your box today at www.Goodygal.com.

Are You Blushing?

Hey girl,  hey! Did you know that the color blush is on the rise? Yeah,  blush is the new neutral. Unlike hot and bubble gum pinks, blush can adapt to your mood. 

The color can complete a romantic, effortless look when worn in flowy, billowing materials.

But don’t discount it if your going for a professional,  yet feminine vibe.  The color blush is a chameleon color. It says, yes, I embrace both my powerful and soft sides.

How are you using the color blush this spring?
