May is Women’s Health Month! You may recall it was my new year’s resolution to put my health first after a sluggish year prior. There have been a few new habits I’ve added to my daily routine and a few more that are waiting for me to revisit and starting to make it into an actual habit! Let’s be real, it’s a journey to start some new good habits and progression whether slow or quick, is still progression.
I was sent a box full of products dedicated to motivate and help women improve different areas of their life and I wanted to share and review them – maybe you’ll find these as solutions to your daily life and find them useful to meet your health goals.
These are not reading glasses, let me first say that – but they CAN be! These are actually UV blue blocker lenses! If I’m not on vacation or hanging out making memories with friends, blogging is what I’m doing and I love every facet of it – from the picture taking, writing, social and web design. I work late, and a screen is never too far from my face – computer, laptop or iPhone, on average a person spends 6.5 hours on screens each day. Did you know UV blue light can have damaging side effects over time – from the sun, devices and artificial light even light bulbs.
Zenni is an online retailer for prescriptive eyewear and also creates clear protective glasses that block UV blue light. Frames are as affordable as $6.95! The Beyond UV blue blocker lenses (like the ones you see that I have) start at $16.95. You can upload your photo and try on glasses to see how they look on you.
It took a while for me to adjust to wearing glasses again after getting LASIK but these were so lightweight and I like wearing them at night before bed so my brain isn’t feeling so wired from the light.
Open Ear Headphones
Open ear headphones by AfterShokz allow you to still listen and enjoy outside sounds like nature intended, while also listening to music that motivates you! Instead of having one ear with an ear bud in it and having one out so you can hear both, you don’t have to pick with AfterShokz!
I have owned the typical ear buds that stay in place while you work out and when I went to the gym no one could talk to me because I couldn’t hear anyone or notice them (sometimes I liked this) but how many times did I have to remove my ear buds to hear someone talk to me? But when you have a buddy or you are biking outside and still want to be able to chat without pulling out your headphones or maybe you want to be able to chat with anyone at the gym, bud-free listening is your answer! It’s also safer too so you can listen to your surroundings, so important!

Natural scented candle
Soy wax blend candle with natural essential oil blends, you probably have heard me talk about Chesapeake Bay Candles before – at least a few times here on the blog. Hand poured in the USA, there are so many scents usually for holidays or different moods.
You can think of them as wellness candles with motivational sayings, like Confidence and Freedom!
This one smells like an old high school boyfriend mixed with fresh laundry to me. LOL you know that nice cologne that’s young and fresh and just comforting. It just made the air smell so nice and calming to me, you have to pick it up and smell it yourself!
Drink Organic Powders
If you love organic vitamins and extracts and superfood powders, check out Pure Synergy.
They sent over their Organic Beet Juice Powder which is a daily health booster and the Turmeric Extract to optimize wellness and cognitive function, and support a healthy inflammatory response, in other words great for after workout healing of inflamed muscles and aches. It tasted sweet! I mean I love beets but I don’t love them that much that I’d ever say yum I’d like some beet juice. So adding this to any juices or water even is a good way to get those veggies in.
You can add the powder to smoothies or juices to give yourself some extra nutrients. It’s pretty much like getting the nutrients without having to eat the beet or search for the nutrients themselves. It’s so convenient!

Supportive Workout Bra
After I worked out at OTF I was super motivated and I bought a ton of cute workout outfits – workout tops and new leggings, I was super motivated I even put them on hangers as a set!
So you know those small things that keep you motivated, and the Curvy Strappy Sports Bra by Champion is just too cute and it’s easy to put on – it isn’t like typical workout bras, this has a clasp in the back like a normal bra so you aren’t squeezing the thing on hoping it doesn’t give you back fat (let’s be real). You can adjust it and the shoulder straps too!
There are molded cups for shape (much needed in my opinion when it comes to work out gear) and offers support and a fashion strappy back. When things are cute I’m much more motivated to use them or decide to go on it – I mean the person who invited Glamping, obviously a girl who had to find some fun in camping (I get you sister!) I’m wearing size small.
A book for ambitious women
I have this thing for self-help books. I’ve always been collecting books trying to better myself, learn, take wisdom and apply it to every day life and meet goals. I mean everything from how to get over breakups, to running a business to managing money! I think you can always continually educate yourself and better yourself with wisdom from others who have been there.
If you’re a girl boss, or a woman who is climbing up the corporate ladder and looking for career guidance, check out The Myth Of A Nice Girl by Fran Hauser. This book is for women who believe being nice is a must and still want to be a strong leader.
Fran has held senior positions at some of the world’s largest digital media businesses like AOL, and Time Inc. She talks about how to be authentic and confident and ask for things without being rude – nice girls can rule the world! I can’t wait to start reading this summer – or in the bathtub as I’m trying to slooooow down and have me time!
Hope one or more of these products can improve your health goals! I still have a long way to go, but it’s a slow progress and I have to remember to not be so hard on myself with too high of expectations!
