A Healthy Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Whenever I experience wellness products that have made a difference for me and others, I want share them!  This year has been all about spending quality time with my family, getting fit and pushing myself to accomplish challenges I never thought I would.

One accomplishment that stands out in particular to me, was completing the KC Marathon on October 15th. My husband ran 20 full miles with me and my kids finished the last ½ mile with me – they provided extra inspiration being by my side and helping me finish the marathon. My wish is to inspire you with some of my favorite things that have helped empower me on my wellness journey and I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy!

Favorite Wellness Enhancing Items


  • Awesome running shoes make all of the difference in the world! I purchased mine at Elite Feet in Kansas City, but you can also find them online by clicking here.
  • There is nothing better than super comfortable running and walking socks. Some of my favorites can be found here. Even better is adding a little inspiration after the run – Notes to Self socks always bring me positivity and strength… especially I am Blessed and I am Strong!
  • My Garmin Vivoactive has really made a difference in keeping me on time and on track. What a wonderful fitness watch to keep up with all of my active moments and help get me to my wellness goals!

Healthy Eats


  • My Breville Juicer is so efficient and convenient – I can’t imagine my life without my fresh green juice! This makes an incredible gift and there are many juices to choose from.
  • I love gluten free recipes! A few of my favorite Gluten Free Cookbooks includes Blender Girl and Eating Clean (has an amazing gluten free granola recipe my family loved).
  • Frothing makes every hot beverage better. I use my frother with Almond Milk to add a light, creamy texture without having to spend a lot of money at coffee shops while cutting out the sugar and staying healthy!

Spa Indulgences


  • Invest in yourself with a Deep Tissue Massage + Sunlighten Purifying Treatment. My 3-in-1® Sunlighten pain relief program plus deep tissue massage from Sunlight Day Spa significantly helped me with my muscle recovery. I was running again within 3 days!
  • Yana is a beauty liquid designed as an easy to drink daily shot. It tastes delicious and is clinically proven to improve skin texture, pore size and fine lines and wrinkles.
  • I use NuFACE Toning Kit daily to keep my skin looking rejuvenated and young. This is a great item for anyone wanting to brighten their skin tone for a softer complexion with fast results.
