Many of the questions I get are from friends wondering where to find the products I use on a day to day basis. I’ve put it all together on this page, and only share things that I use and love.

I am blown away by what collagen peptides have done for my skin. I’m 51, and my skin is firmer, healthier and overall prettier now than it was ten years ago. Consuming collagen peptides daily also helps with nail and hair growth, and is great for your connective tissues. It can even help with cellulite and acne scarring!
I love this company because their peptides are from pastured bovine sources. (They also offer a marine collagen which is awesome if you don’t consume meat.)
Try blending the peptides into your coffee, tea, smoothie or green drink every day…you will be thrilled with the results!
I have been enjoying a daily green drink for years now. Consuming plenty of greens keeps my energy up and my skin glowing. Some days I make them with fresh greens, lemon and ginger. On the days that I don’t have time, and especially when I’m traveling, I love Organifi.
Organifi is an instant green drink made from powdered superfoods. It has a fresh, lightly sweetened taste (way better than the stuff I blend up!) and blends easily into water with just a spoon.

I pretty much love everything from this company, from the avocado oil mayo (the chipotle lime is seriously the best thing ever!) to their delicious bars, to the Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel which tastes like the most amazing vanilla shake. Not only does everything taste great, the ingredients are super clean. Go check them out…you’ll thank me later! Here’s a link: Primal Kitchen
I have started blending their Brain Octane Oil into my coffee in the am (along with some collagen peptides) and my energy and focus are through the roof. Can’t say enough good things. You can also order amazing coffee, collagen peptides and collagen shortbread bars which seriously taste like a cookie (the vanilla is my fave!) Go check them out: Bulletproof Store
Another company that makes high quality collagen products is Vital Proteins. If you want firm skin and healthy hair and nails, their collagen peptides are great. And I love the collagen beauty greens when I travel. They have so much to offer…check them out here: Vital Proteins
Totally love their clay mask, and I have tried many. It has a high concentration of vitamin C. Your skin will be pink for an hour or so afterwards, but for days will look and feel like you’ve just been to the spa. Combine the clay mask with their derma roller and you can have a true spa experience in your own home. You will love it! Alitura Naturals
Thrive combines the best of Whole Foods, Costco and Amazon into a delightful online shopping experience. You get name brand healthy items at discounts of 25-50%, delivered to your door. Last year I saved close to $800 shopping at Thrive. Try a one month membership for free: Thrive Market Free Trial Membership
It’s no secret that I love coffee. With Javazen, I have taken my coffee experience to a whole new level. Javazen is a blend of organic coffee, tea, and superfoods. You get a more balanced energy with less of a crash. My favorite variety is Balance, a blend of organic coffee, matcha and cacao. Boost is a little higher in caffeine and gives more of a pick me up, and Relax is a decaf blend that is really tasty. Check it out here: Javazen
If organic wine delivered to your door sounds too good to be true, think again! Dry Farm Wines is a subscription service that delivers your choice of artisanal reds, whites, or an assortment on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. These wines are free of sugar and carbs, and contain none of the additives found in commercial wines. Check it out…go through this link and add an additional bottle to your first order for a penny!

After clearing and improving my skin with the right foods, I became obsessed with making it even better with natural skin care. Annmarie Skincare makes wildcrafted, organic skin care. Some of my favorite products include their Aloe Herb Cleanser, Rosemary Toner, and Anti-Aging Serum. They offer awesome sample kits for $10 that include a coupon good for $10 off your next order. Plus they ship sample kits anywhere in the world for free! You can’t lose! Annmarie Skincare
Raw Elements makes the most amazing sunscreen using Zinc Oxide, the safest and most effective sunblock available. It is combined with organic ingredients that nourish your skin, and is reef-safe. I particularly like their tinted formulas. Raw Elements use the code “happyhealthyandhot10” for 10% off your order
100% Pure is a line of natural, fruit dyed cosmetics, skin care, hair care and more. I use their shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion, as well as some of their makeup. The lengthening mascara is amazing. Not only do I love the products, I love the fact that they offer free shipping and free returns on all orders.
Telluride Glow makes an amazing, multi-tasking beauty oil called Alpine Pure Oil. Originally designed as a facial oil, you can pretty much use it anywhere. I love to pat it into freshly cleansed skin right before bed. I also rub it into the dried out ends of my hair, and my cuticles. Love the scent, love the pure ingredients, love everything about this product!

Seriously, who doesn’t love Amazon? Below this paragraph is a link to my Happy, healthy and hot Amazon store. This contains many products I have mentioned on the blog: pantry items, beauty products, books, and some items that are too strange to even have a category, like a mini trampoline (you will love it!!!!) and the crazy orange goggles I wear before bed to block out blue light. If you buy from that link (or the links embedded in some of my posts) I receive a small commission, which helps support the costs of maintaining this little blog of mine.
I recently discovered a local company producing one of my favorite foods…grass fed ghee! Simply Ghee is absolutely delicious and full of wonderful fat soluble vitamins that your body needs. Check out their website. You can order online or find out where to buy it.
If you notice my nails looking extra cute, it’s probably because I’m wearing Jamberry nail wraps. These are free of the five highly toxic ingredients found in many polishes. If you are interested in having cute nails too, check out this link.
I always like to spread the word about people who are trying to make the world a better place. Here are some blogs that I really enjoy:
Primally Inspired by Kelly Winters is one of my very favorites. Kelly has a really positive vibe that I love. Her blog is a mix of healthy recipes, lifestyle tips and even fashion. Her posts are typically a little longer and more detailed than mine…again, we all have our own style.
The Merry Maker Sisters are real sisters from Australia. Emma and Carla are so much fun! They share lots of whole food, paleo-ish recipes, especially festive desserts, and have just started a podcast about building a business based on doing what you love.
Jenni Raincloud has a great lifestyle blog, with lots of info on DIY skin care with the most natural ingredients. Jenni also has an Etsy shop where she sells many of the same products she gives recipes for, for those that don’t want to make their own. I love her eye stick!
Mark’s Daily Apple is a blog that I have followed for years. Mark Sisson is a leader in the paleo/primal movement, and has written many best selling books on health and fitness. There is a new post every day, ranging from real life success stories, recipes, fitness tips, and much more. Many of the posts contain links to studies backing up the information given. If I need detailed info on a particular health related subject, this is one of my first stops.
