2018: The Year of a Healthier ME

I seriously can’t believe we’re in the second week of 2018. I still feel like 2017 went by way too fast and it’s hard to cope with the fact that a new year is officially under way.

Tomorrow, I’m diving into some of my thoughts around setting “resolutions” for a new year and why I’m more on board with setting goals and dreams – it’s gonna be a good read, y’all! But in the meantime, I thought I’d address this whole idea of a healthier me in 2018. Let’s be real, we all have those same visions of a better diet, more workouts, an overall healthier lifestyle, etc. when we start a new year. But sometimes, that can be easier said than done. You can buy new groceries and schedule workout classes but I’m a firm believer that a healthier lifestyle starts with your day-to-day to routine and the goods you keep at home (food aside).

In comes Babbleboxx. Long story short – they send influencers a sampling of goodies aligned with a certain theme and we test them out to share with our readers. You probably remember some of my previous projects with the team (love the leopard booties from the last holiday party theme!) but I think this season’s box just might be my favorite. The focus: Lean, Clean and Green in 2018, products to help kickoff the new year and jumpstart a healthier lifestyle. Read on for some of the items I absolutely loved and  guys get ready to feel inspired to make some big changes this year!

Kickstart a Healthier 2018 with My New Favorite Products

It all starts with some good self-care. Ladies, let me introduce you to the Waterpik Chrome PowerSpray+™ Hand Held Shower Head with PowerPulse Massage®. Yeah, it sounds like A LOT and it is, in all of the best ways imaginable. The Waterpick Power Pulse might just be my new favorite addition to my daily routine. Can I be honest with you guys – I don’t like showers. It’s not that I don’t like to get clean. I just hate the act of showering. I take as quick a shower as humanly possible because I hate being under the spray of water for long periods of time. I know. I’m weird. Well guess what – I’m a changed woman. The shower head on this bad boy has up to 2X the massage force of other shower heads to maximize water flow and produce more spray force. So basically it’s like a massage while you’re getting clean and that is something I can get behind. The handheld also has 9 spray options so there’s something for everyone!

The next round up of goodies are now handbag staples that I have been using in heavy rotation all season long. These CW Hemp products are sure to be a lifesaver to your skincare regimen. First up, the Everyday Plus Hemp Oil. I add a little bit of this oil to my morning smoothie (love the Mint Chocolate flavor!) to help support my overall skin health. I also use the Hemp Infused Balm and Cream to keep my dry skin at bay. Complete with hemp extract and non GMO/preservative free ingredients, these products are going to be your new best friend. CW Hemp is offering Lauren Elyce readers a special discount. Use code BABBOX3AZFDQ9JONPC for 10% off your next order. (limit 1 per customer, valid through 2/15/17)

The next item on the list is one that is going to totally help with my fitness goals this year. Meet the Casio G-Shock S Series Step Tracker. I fell in love with the mint hue of this watch and I’m obsessed with anything techy that also helps keep me on track with my workouts. The watch features an automatic step counter display, is water and shock resistant and makes setting and COMPLETING your step goals so much easier.  

Keeping in line with one of the trendiest items of 2017, I think I’m hooked on this Matcha Powder from The Synergy Company. If you aren’t already familiar, matcha is the rarest form of Japanese green tea and one of the most beneficial. It supports energy and focus and honestly makes for the perfect matcha latte. Fun fact: matcha is also linked to cell protection, healthy heart function, healthy cholesterol and blood sugar balance, memory support, and healthy weight management. So, yup all the good things we want in life. Lately, I’ve been adding a scoop into my smoothies for a delicious treat and I’ve already noticed a little bit of a difference in my energy!  It doesn’t hurt that I’m a little obsessed with all things matcha.

Last up but another favorite is the Primal Life Organics All Natural Peppermint Toothpowder and Charcoal Ion Toothbrush. To be honest, I think I was most hesitant about these products because they were the most unfamiliar. The all natural toothpowder is filled with natural nutrients to help remineralize, detoxify, whiten and strengthen teeth. Simply dip your wet Charcoal Ion toothbrush (which is great for removing stains) into the Toothpowder and brush for 2 minutes. Teeth game – changed. I’m already noticing a brighter smile and love that I got to try something new to share with you guys. The best part? Lauren Elyce readers can use code PLOBOXX217 for 20% off your order!


So what do we think? Are you interested in trying any of the above products? What steps are you taking to make 2018 better and healthier than ever? Sound off below!

    Great post! I love these product boxes that’s been trending lately. It makes it so much easier to shop and buy things in a bundle. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried this but adding turmeric to food and beauty routines makes a huge difference. It’s anti-inflammatory and great for gut health. Just be careful of the yellow stain!
