CBD Oil, Packing Cubes, Beauty and More

Happy Friday friends! This week has gone by quickly for me. How about you? I’ve got some honest to goodness favorite things to share with you today that include my current CBD oil, packing cubes, beauty and more.

Y’all know I’ve been using CBD oil for at least a year, probably closer to a year and half. The benefits of CBD oil include things like joint pain, sleep issues, and anxiety/stress just to name a few. I received this brand a while back and use it every night before bed. It’s best to place the desired amount under your tongue and allow it sink in. CBD oil is also becoming very common to use on pets. I know a lot of people who give it to their dogs for anxiety. I have a code (LISA20) you can use for 20% off at BearX.


Protein shakes!!! I’ve been doing Keto for a week now. It takes a little getting used to, but I’m getting there. This is a Key Lime shake I’ve made several times and it’s yummy. My brother gave me the recipe. You can use a regular vanilla protein powder, but I’ve been using a ready made shake that’s Keto friendly. However, I intend to start using this protein powder that’s Keto friendly.

Protein Powder or drink of your choice (If using protein powder, I use Almond Milk)
In a jar combine 1 package of Sugar Free Cheesecake Pudding mix, 1 package of Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding mix and 1 package of Sugar Free Lime Jello. Use 1 tablespoon of this mixture.
3 Tablespoons Lime Juice

Add apx 10 ice cubes and blend in blender. This Ninja blender works GREAT!!!

There are a couple of old favorite beauty products and a couple of new ones I want to share. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times how much I L O V E my Lash Boost. The difference it’s made in my lashes is basically unbelievable…but true. I also love my eye cream. No one want old eyes. If you are ever interested in any Rodan + Fields products, I am a consultant I’d love to help you. You can visit my website here www.lrichardson3.myrandf.com
Take my Solution Tool, and send me an email at richardson4.lisa@gmail.com with your address, and I’ll send you some samples to try. No obligation. It’s always fun to try new products.

These are my personal BEFORE and AFTER pictures of Lash Boost.

The other two products I was sent to try, and I’ve been using them nightly for about a month. I really like the way they make my skin feel. These are both dermatologist recommended products and sold in offices, but you can also get them online a few places. It’s important to always buy skin care from an authorized seller…not places like E-bay or Facebook Marketplace. You can usually Google “authorized seller of XYZ”, and find out exactly who’s reputable. SkincareRX is one such retailer. Rather than me trying to explain these two, here’s what the actual website says about the.

BIOPELLE – Our highest level of growth factor benefits for daily use, this concentrated, oil-free serum helps to repair, protect and maintain the appearance of youthful-looking skin. This serum also features vitamin C to help brighten skin, niacinamide to reduce the appearance of pores and other antioxidant benefits and hyaluronic acid for moisture.

EMPELLE – Emepelle Night Cream is a luxurious and restorative cream that harnesses skin’s nighttime repair activities to help restore vitality and luminosity to aging skin.  This rich and nourishing night cream features breakthrough MEP Technology to help restore the natural function of Estrogen Deficient Skin non-hormonally for improved firmness, hydration and luminosity.  Emepelle Night Cream is designed specifically for women in menopause and perimenopause.

If you’ve been around here for a while, then these packing cubes are old news. If you’re new…you’re going to want to know about these. They make packing so easy, and you have so much more room. In fact, the only worry I have now is going over the 50# limit. Even Kent used a couple recently and thought they were really great.


These two right here closed on their first house this week. I mean how exciting is that?! We are so proud of, and happy for them. I can’t wait to be able to see it in person. We drove by it when we were there a few weeks ago, but I’m dying to see inside.

ALMONDS! Do you like almonds? I’ve liked them for a long time, but right now I’m doing Keto, and almonds are good source of fat with low carbs. These salt and vinegar almonds are delicious “if” you are a fan of salt and vinegar.

I made a trip to Target yesterday and found some cute things. Did you know the Universal Thread brand is 15% off right now? And then if you have a red card it’s another 5% off. I’m ordering some of these pieces, and then I just thought some were too good not to share.

And one last thing. Y’all know I love Victoria Emerson wrap bracelets. You probably also know they are almost always having a sale. Right now they’ve got a special party box with 5 bracelets that are a really good deal. Think about grabbing one of these to have gifts on hands for Mother’s Day, graduations, teachers gifts, nurses appreciation, girlfriends birthdays…you name it. These are absolutely perfect for adding to a gift as a little something extra or putting with a gift card for something memorable.

I bet you’re gonna watch those pounds drop girl with Keto. Cutting out carbs really is the key for me and of course I never go a day without exercise. But I’m back on carbs and probably need to back off again, lol. Have the sweetest weekend!!! xo

    I used CBD oil a few times (it was a tincture, and that is really not my jam), and it knocked me out. I was like “That’s one way to help my anxiety!” haha it became a running joke with a friend, as she was using medical marijuana for cancer side effects at the time and running into some similar issues. Congrats to Benny and Erin on their house!! Hope you’re having a great weekend, Blog Mom! xoxo

      That’s too bad about the CBD. I used a tincture too, and didn’t have any issues. Funny how things affect different people differently

      Hope you’re having a great weekend sweet girl!!
