I’ve come to accept that I will never be the type of person who naturally has tons of time to relax. I’ve gotten so bad at booking my schedule full (and unfortunately at moments getting burnt out) that I’m CONSTANTLY updating my self-care routine.
Have you ever felt this way? That you’re just not meant for a relaxing lifestyle? Call us Type A, but boredom is the enemy. With this chosen lifestyle (and in general, just all the distractions that come our way because…hello…millennials!) taking care of our body & mind are some of the best ways to ensure you are able to rise to the top of whatever ladder we’re trying to climb (even if it’s just the one to grab your Louis Vuitton)!
The Three Self-Care Items That Will Change Your Entire Routine, Vol. 3
Kopari Beauty’s All Natural COCONUT Deodorant
Sweating (and hopefully not smelling!) is one of the FEW ways I can really take care of myself! LITERALLY nothing feels better after a long week than getting my a$$ kicked in a work out class. My only problem? I’ve been searching forever for an all natural deodorant (without harmful chemicals like aluminum – here’s a video on WHY it’s so bad for you) to work out in without stress of what it’s doing to my body!
I’ve had a few people in my life get cancer in the past few years (one of which is my best friend from home) and since then, I’ve REALLY been trying to weed out any product that’s adding harmful chemicals to my body!
Anyways, I started working out in Kopari’s Coconut Deodorant and I was LITERALLY so impressed with how good I smelled (I did a hot yoga class with it first thing and was smelling like a beach at the end of it)! The Deodorant is 100% plant-based active and works with your body’s natural functions to aid in odor reduction. It’s also aluminum free, baking soda free, paraben free, silicone free, phthalate free, vegan…the works! I literally LOVE the smell of coconuts and am constantly smelling my armpits after putting it on..is that weird??
I was so obsessed with this product that Kopari was actually nice enough to give a discount code so you all can get it too! Put in BECKY25 to receive 25% off first time purchase of Deodorant or first-time subscription sign up for Deodorant.

2. Anti-Blue Light Glasses for Better Sleep
I have a confession…I do what LITERALLY ever sleep expert says not to do and work in bed, and right up until I fall asleep. Everyone says you are not supposed to bring any stress to the bedroom if you want a restful night’s sleep but I definitely have not mastered the art of finishing work at a reasonable hour! A few months ago, I started getting horrible nightmares and diagnosed that this was probably the issue.
(I also do things like drink coffee at 10 pm and have sugar right before sleep but that’s a conversation for another day)
I always knew that screens messed with your sleep schedule and melatonin – so I decided to start wearing anti-blue light glasses to help my body stay more restful while working at night! Honestly, since I’ve started wearing these glasses (usually around 8 pm so a few hours before bed) I feel A THOUSAND times better in terms of how deep I sleep. I bought the clear & the black glasses and think the black is way more flattering if you are considering buying! Tons of glasses companies are now coming out with anti-blue light glasses, I would highly reccomend getting some!!!
So now you can go on Instagram ALLLLL night long (kidding, but do what you need to do)!
3. Silk Pillow Case To Wake Up With Better Skin & Hair
Speaking of sleep…after seeing Jlo on stage this award show season I literally went on a rabbit hole of figuring out her self-care/skincare routine because helllloooo, who DOESN’T want to look as good as Jlo!! ✋In this Internet adventure, I discovered that SILK pillow cases were a thing – not because it sounds bougie AF, but because they actually help you look better every day.
As I mentioned, we are all generally pretty busy people, and with life natural stresses – the LEAST we could ask for is to wake up looking refreshed. Silk pillowcases restore the moisture in your hair and skin (while not pulling out any hair in your sleep like cotton can), in addition to reducing wrinkles. Most silk pillowcases are wildly expensive (like more than $80) but I discovered some “knock-off” silk pillowcases that actually do the trick on Amazon, link here. These are two for $15 – which is SUCH a sweet deal considering it works so well.
I KNOW they are working because I actually have had to cool it with my conditioner because there is so much moisture in my hair now when I wake (this NEVER happened with my cotton pillow cases).
