UncommonGoods – Are you familiar with UncommonGoods? They’re a company committed to impacting the world in a positive way, and I think that alone makes them worth supporting. As if that weren’t enough, they sent me a few products to review and I was like yeah, ok, that’s probably cool. Then I looked through the website and was like GIVE ME ALL THE THINGS. Everything on their website is unique, half of the items are handmade, and so many things got me excited! They have a Christmas gift guide, which I highly recommend perusing because the price point is, well, on point. And this might be like a mini-faves in faves because I want to show you what I got!
- Raw Georgia Wildflower Honeycomb – YOU GUYS this honey. It is in the picture above and what you saw on Instagram and it is glorious. It’s an actual slab of honeycomb that you can eat. It’s beautiful and perfect for your holiday cheese board or random snacking on a piece of chocolate or with goat cheese and apples. The honeycomb is chewy, the honey is sweet, and the whole thing is huge! Do it, do it, do it.
- Veggie Dyed Block Printed Crossbody Bag – I buy new purses like I go to the dentist. Ummm, never. I’m just super picky about my bags but I love the size and look of this one. It feels really sturdy and I love that it’s handmade.
- Auroral Earrings – Speaking of being picky, I rarely buy earrings. I love natural materials with a simple beauty, and these fit the bill! These earrings are a little bigger than I usually wear but they’re still worth it because they’re so cute. (Hint: Get these as a stocking stuffer for your lady – she will love them, although they have tons of other ideas too!)
- Flip book Kit, Embroidery Kit, Needlefelt Kit – I’ve been wanting to do some projects like these with Lola for school (handicrafts!) but was feeling intimidated about finding the right materials or project. These kits include everything you need and are so beautiful and simple that I’m actually excited to do them instead of dreading every little step along the way.
- Woodland Sunbeams Lithopane Nightlight – With four kids we have a ton of night lights around our house. I saw this one on the website and it seemed so calming and beautiful that I wished I could keep it in my own room! Instead I put it in the boys’ room because Cas likes to fall asleep with his eyes open (don’t even ask) and I loved the idea of him drifting off into this soothing forest scene.
Ibotta – I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it definitely deserves a spot in my favorites! I’ve only been using it for about a month and I’ve already earned $25! When I pair this with the Cartwheel app, my Target RedCard, and Coupons.com I feel like a crazy coupon lady, but I seriously save loads of money and I feel like I’m barely scratching the surface. Coupon people, tell me your ways!! I feel like it’s important to point out that I don’t ordinarily buy a lot of processed foods, which is what you can usually find coupons for. Almost all of the above savings were through weekly purchases of milk, bread, bananas, and tomatoes. You get $10 just for signing up, and I get $5 if you use the referral code: ejgmcvp.
Driftless Imaging – I’ve already mentioned they took our family photos, but I had to include them in my fall favorites! This is unfortunately hyper local to me, but if you need photos for Christmas cards or a winter wedding be sure to look them up!
The 4 Hour Workweek – I’m probably way late to the party here, but I was super inspired by this book. I’m not going to say it’s for everyone, but if you’re not interested in going to an office every day for the rest of your life it’s worth a shot.
Black Mirror – We watched this on Netflix, and I’m not sure if it airs somewhere else first. There are three seasons and they’re all so uncomfortable and and way too real even though they’re futuristic. Some of the episodes are really raw, but I think it’s worth it for the message they get to in the end. They’re all about technology and how society responds to it.
Old Navy leggings – I treated myself to some warm work out gear so I could continue to run into the autumn weather. I do not like to be cold at all, and I can’t believe how warm these leggings keep my legs! If I were to go for a walk in jeans my legs would for sure be cold on the thighs. These leggings are soft, warm, and look normal enough to wear with a sweater if I want. Plus the waistband is super forgiving and not at all painful (I’m looking at you, like every other pair of leggings in the world). To be clear I am NOT endorsing their compression leggings, I find those extremely constricting, but this yoga pair is top notch.
EC Stage Art – Ok, so shameless plug, this is my husband’s company. But I feel like every other food blogger I know is married to a musician, so maybe you need to know about this? Jeron recently redid the website and I just think it’s beautiful and inspiring. Who wants to start a band?!
Seventh Generation Dishwasher Gel – Is it totally lame that one of my favorite things is dishwasher gel? It is. I’ve been using this for quite a while just because it seemed like a slightly more natural choice than what you can normally buy at the store. Then we ran out and I couldn’t get any for a couple of weeks so I went back to the average generic stuff. And ohmygosh my dishes revolted. There was white film everywhere and food still stuck on plates. With the amount of dishes we go through with six people home all day, getting things clean with minimal effort is very important. This gel gets the job done and is a more natural choice. Win win!
Food Blogger Pro – I was a member of Food Blogger Pro a couple years ago and loved it. They’ve added tons of new content since then and added several employees to improve the customer service and experience. They only open their membership twice a year (November 1-10 this time around) and this time they’re giving members one year access to Nutrifox, a nutritional calculator for food bloggers, and an $89 value on it’s own. I highly recommend getting in now!
Keyboarding Without Tears – I forgot to mention this in my homeschool update so I figured I would mention it here. Both Cas and Lola have been working through this program and love it! The program is fun and easy, and Lola can basically type now which I’m so amazed by.
