When I was a little girl, and of course, even now, and I would hear a whisper or even just a pleasant voice, it would send tingles to the back of my head and even down my spine. It would relax me and even make me sleepy. I've experience this sensation for as long as I can remember. I had no idea what the sensation was called or if anyone else experienced it. All I knew was that I loved having someone read to me every night.
Amongst all of the gift guides I will be putting together, I felt that it was only right to include my own ;) I mean, a girl can get a little something special, right?
I could go on for days about why I love St. Therese so much. I have a small statue of her in my room, so many books, her saint medal, and my collection is GROWING!!! I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as having too much St. Therese merchandise.
It's also the time of the year when we show our loved ones just how much we love them! And of course, Mom is at the top of your list! It can so tricky to shop for Mom, especially because they always say that they have everything that they need ;) But, we know deep down that she deserves a special little something.

Of course it's important to take care of yourself year-round, but why not use this season of love and thankfulness to start showing yourself some care?
So much has happened to me this year, but I'm going to save that for another post since we technically have two-ish more months left of this year (also crazy to think about. Seriously, where did this year go?).
Earlier this year, I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with the Korean skincare company, Saranghae, and review their 5-step routine. But this time, I got to try out their charcoal mask and toner and am happy to report that I fell in love with both products! Here's the scoop:
In most cases, out "go-to" relaxation before bed is screen time...spending an hour, or more with the TV on or with our phone in our face. But we all know that that's not healthy for us. Yet, it has become a habit for us, and one that is hard for us to break. It's a bad habit for myself as well.
