Holistic Health with Boiron (and Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to how I cope with ailments I am anything but traditional. I love that there are so many options for healing in this world and that holistic health is becoming more popular in everyday society. I was fortunate to have grown up with a mother (now an herbalist!) who taught me how to listen to my body, and that when I wasn’t feeling my best I had the option of reaching for something natural.

And while often I was in the backyard picking mullen or dandelion for tea, when I needed something not so readily accessible I turned to Boiron- a name synonymous with holistic health. The little blue tubes were staples in my medicine cabinet, and as a human that bruises like a peach (and always has!) Arnica has always been one of my best friends!

Yoga on Your Own Terms: Yoga Download (and Giveaway)

Hello Darlings!

Life is crazy. True statement. And sometimes, making the time to fit your practice into your daily schedule can be difficult. Fighting your way through traffic to head to the yoga studio, the gym, or even the park can shave off precious minutes of your ‘me’ time so why not just walk from your bedroom to your favorite device? lets you do just that! I’m partial to practicing using my laptop when I practice at home because of its portability, but any device that is compatible with .MP4s will do.  You have option of streaming classes or downloading them to your device so you don’t need to be connected to wifi to practice!

What I Ate Wednesday: Gone Fishy (and Outer Spice Giveaway)

Hello Darlings!

I’ve been on a seafood kick lately. From fish to prawns to sushi, I’ve been loving everything that comes from the ocean (seaweed included!) So I thought I’d share some of my favorites from this past week!

One of the ‘make-it-simple’ ingredients that has been my go-to this past month is the line of spice blends from Outer Spice. I have been insanely busy and barely have time to think, let alone create a spice blend for every meal I eat.

One Step Protein Flapjacks: Kodiak Cakes Review & Giveaway!

Hello Darlings!

I am not a morning person. And because of that I’m not particularly fond of waking up to cook breakfast. (Brunch, however, completely different story.) So when there is a one-step way to make a delicious and healthy breakfast I can’t help but get excited. Kodiak Cakes, a whole grain and all-natural flapjack and waffle mix now with a protein-laden version, Power Cakes is just that! Just add water and you’re good to go!

Summer Drink Series: Lavender Whiskey Sour (& CamelBak Relay Pitcher Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

If you’ve been reading Chickadee Says for a while you might have noticed that I am rather obsessed with lavender. So when I was at the Blend Retreat in the beginning of June and spotted a lavender-whiskey cocktail on the menu at one of the distilleries in downtown Park City, I immediately ordered it. However, silly me didn’t think to ask about the ingredients until, well, when I decided to try to make it myself. So, while this isn’t a copy cat recipe, I most definitely was inspired by the lavender-whiskey combo!
