Conscious Living | My Love For Perfectly Imperfect Produce + FAVE Summer Smoothie Recipe!

*I've received product from Perfectly Imperfect Produce. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the companies that support BG by Christina. Some links might be affiliate links. I only share what I love.
 Hi, guys!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me talking about Perfectly Imperfect Produce! I've received a couple of their boxes and I'm just in love with them!

Perfectly Imperfect Produce is a fresh produce delivery service, located here in Ohio. They rescue imperfect produce from local farms and wholesalers. This includes items that might be unique in size, shape, or color as well as surplus crop.
They're helping to end food waste in Ohio!

They also donate produce to people in need via The Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland with every box purchased!


So, how exactly does it work?

1) They source the produce

2) You choose the box size + frequency 

3) They deliver it right to you home!

4) You enjoy the imperfect produce & turn them into beautiful, healthy meals!
How cool is that?!

I've been so incredibly happy with every single box that I've gotten from them! I found out through their website that the United States throws away 40% of the food they produce. That is way too much food and resources to be throwing away. We need to continue to find more ways to do our part in ending food waste. Perfectly Imperfect Produce gives us a way to take part in this mission and eat yummy foods while we're doing it!

A giveaway is coming next week! 
So be sure you're following me on Instagram @bgbychristina :)

Hi, guys!

Today, I wanted to talk to you guys about Clothe Ohio! I collaborated with them one other time, but it was a long long time ago! I think it was when I had my old blog running.
Clothe Ohio is a company that is giving back!

With every order placed, they give a new t-shirt or sweatshirt to an Ohioan in need! 
How awesome is that?! 

They're teamed up with non-profits and charitable organizations throughout the state, so that they're able to give to the people who need it most. Clothe Ohio combines their love for comfy, yet fashionable Ohio apparel and their passion for giving back!

It's an honor to be able to show off their apparel and help support their cause.
This Ohio Babe t-shirt is such a cute tee for all of my local cuties & Ohio lovers!
It would also make a great gift! They have a ton of other cute Ohio items and apparel so definitely check them out. Every purchase you make supports local and helps a member of the community.

Beauty | Simply Earth Essential Oils August Recipe Box + Make The Clear Skin Roll On With Me!

*I've received product from Simply Earth. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the companies that support BG by Christina. Some links might be affiliate links. I only share what I love.
Hi, guys!

H a p p y  M o n d a y !

 I am soo excited for this post! I've found a company & a product that I absolutely love. I always get so excited to share something with you when it's something that just gets me really excited!
The company is Simply Earth and the product is their monthly recipe boxes!

I know that a lot of you already know that I'm obsessed with essential oils and have been for quite awhile. I use them every day and I've found some of them to be super effective in my recent health, home, and beauty endeavors! However, I haven't shared much about it here, or on social media.

I'm now on the Simply Earth squad and I can't wait to be sharing all of the things that I make with you guys. Simply Earth doesn't just sell essential oils, they also sell monthly recipe boxes, which in my book are the coolest subscription boxes around! Each box contains 4 essential oils, natural ingredients, and fun extras. I was seriously blown away by how much came in the box! They also come with a handful of recipes to make out of the items that come in the box. How cool is that!?
 The August box has a skincare theme, so there were multiple recipes for natural skincare items included in it. I made the clear skin roll-on and it only takes 2 steps to make!
Keep scrolling to see the how-to!

If you would like to try the recipe boxes for yourself, go to this link
& use the code:
BLOOMGOLDFREE
 to receive a $40 gift-card with your initial subscription box and get a BONUS BOX too!

You can use the gift-card towards your next box, or toward your future purchases!
The boxes are only $39 a month and they have over $150 worth of items in them, so its a really awesome deal!
CLEAR SKIN ROLL ON HOW-TO
 Needed: Almond Oil, Simply Earth Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend, Roll-On Bottle
Steps:
 1) Add 8 drops of Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend into the roll-on bottle
 2) Fill the rest of the bottle up with Almond Oil, swirl to mix 
& That's it! Simple as that! 
To use, just apply it to the affected area as needed.  
Have you tried essential oils?
& Could you use a natural clear skin roll-on?

Love,

Christina xx
