Welcome to my recommendations page!
I’ve created a list of tools and products that have helped me and my kids out greatly in creating a balanced life.
I created this page to feature the “best of the best” when it comes to running a happy and mindful household. We also focus a lot on emotional regulation and anxiety relief.
These are services I have personally used and highly recommend because they are great quality and are super easy to use.
I’ve also included a few of my favourite blogging resources and tools, so if you’re a blogger wondering how I keep things running…see below.
If you have questions about any of the tools on this list, please reach out to me on the contact page. I’d love to chat.

FREE — Have you signed up for Ibotta yet? It’s one of my favorite money-making apps, and it’s a great way to save money on groceries and more—without clipping coupons!
This free app that gives you rebates for generic brand purchases at the grocery store is a no-brainer (and how I paid for extra xmas gifts while still paying off debt.)
Login and check out which stores in your area offer cash back. (You can get cash back from 275 different stores — including Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Kroger, Publix, Food Lion, Costco, Dollar Tree, Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, and many, many more. No matter where you live, there should definitely be some stores that offer cash back offers from iBotta in your area!)
Muse gives you feedback about your meditation in real time by translating your brain signals into the sounds of wind. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear calm and settled winds. When your mind is active the winds will pick up and blow.
It’s innovative, and very cool. I love it! Check out the website!
The Brain Sensing Headband
Muse is your personal meditation assistant. This sort of cool….while you meditate…the headband uses brain-sensing technology to measure whether your mind is calm or active, and translates those signals into guiding sounds.
Put on your Muse headband and headphones……launch the app, close your eyes and immerse yourself within the sounds of a beach or rain-forest.
Muse is a little pricey at the $249 price point, (and I can’t stress enough that you definitely don’t need this, or anything else to meditate) it’s like the icing on the cake, unnecessary but if within your means, a nice treat. If you are a person who loves gadgets and neat ways to further your practice, I would recommend this for you.
$24. This growth mindset journal empowers children to face challenges with confidence, embrace mistakes, and know they can learn anything!
I’m in love with all of the products over at the Big Life Journal. I’ve personally purchased their journal for kids and teens and they are fabulous.

$9. Introducing FriXion Ball Clicker- the world’s first retractable, erasable gel ink pen. The FriXion line of pens write smoothly and erase cleanly so you can erase every ‘oops’ (the written ones, at least). FriXion offers you unlimited do-overs so you can write, erase, and re-write until you get it right, without any wear or tear to the paper or messy eraser crumbs.
I once heard these pens referred to as life changing and I admit, I rolled my eyes. But one year later, I’m shouting from the rooftops about these pens. THESE ARE AMAZING. These brightly colored planner pens ERASE COMPLETELY. As in, they erase better than a pencil. They’re amazing and I love them. They are usually cheapest on Amazon.
**If your ink disappears, it means the paper got too hot, stick it in the freezer. Weird, I know, but effective.
