Not Just a Mom: Daily Must Haves

 Good morning! I hope you all had a nice weekend. We got to head up to the mountains to visit my parents. It was a perfect weekend getaway and I'll share more about it in a separate post next week.

Today the Not Just a Mom ladies are sharing our daily must haves. This is one I was initially struggling to write... I couldn't think of anything I use daily besides my toothbrush and contact lens case. What a riveting post that would be. 😂 But as I started to think about it, there are actually quite a few things I use daily and could share!

Starting with...  my daily cup of coffee. I have been using these refillable k cups for years and love them. I use the little filters to line the k cup, then just take the whole thing out and put it in our compost. 

Another thing I use daily is my infused water pitcher. I can be terrible about remembering to drink water, but this pitcher seems to help. I love to throw some frozen fruit in, or I'll use my lemon juicer to add lemon/lime juice. 

We make smoothies, smoothie bowls or açaí bowls almost daily and I love my Vitamix for that. 

Our air fryer is another thing that gets used daily, sometimes twice a day. I love to air fry some veggies with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. I use it to make a veggie side item for lunch almost every day, sometimes dinner too! We also love to air fry tofu to get it really crispy. 

We have two Google Homes and an Alexa Echo Dot (they were all gifts, I didn’t purchase that many smart speakers 😆). We use them for everything! We listen to music, use them for a timer in the kitchen, ask them the weather, set reminders (every Monday at 5:45 pm take the trash bins out, etc.). 

And then as far as beauty products go, my daily lotion is the Purlisse Watermelon Aqua Balm, makeup is the Purlisse BB Cream, and I’ve been using the Tarte Finishing Powder. Sometimes I use the Illuminating BB Cream, it just depends on what I’m in the mood for. 

Those are my daily must haves! Next month we are talking about our morning routines. Add it to your calendars now so you can link up with us!

  1. Gotta have coffee and water! I have those things on my list too.

  2. I never had any luck with the taste of the kcup refill pod, does the liner help? We use our airfryer daily too

  3. I struggled with this prompt too! I was taking it much too literally at first and couldn't think of many things that I used EVERY single day.

  4. Coffee was definitely on my list too! Can’t live without it. Haha I love all of your must haves!

  5. I use my toothbrush and contact lens case every day too!!! And we love adding lemon juice to our water.
