This Week’s Obsessions: 3 Things You Need in Your Life

This Week's Obsessions - 3 Things You Need in Your Life - Gltuen Free Pizza Organic Wine Oil Diffuser

 

So I have this dilemma. Sometimes I come across something AMAZING (I mean, life changing) and I think to myself, “My Pretty Pretty Pineapple crew would love this!”

But then I think, “Well, it’s not really a recipe and it isn’t substantial enough for a whole blog post.” But nonetheless, I don’t want you to miss out! Because if I’m obsessed, then you might be, too!

So I’m starting a roundup. And here it is. The first of many in my new series, “This Week’s Obsessions.”

I am excited to share everything from my latest finds at the grocery store, to my favorite exercise routines and relaxation methods. Interested in my skincare regimen or what’s in my lunch box? Comment below and let me know what you’d like to see! 

 

Green Air Essential Oil Diffuser

Sometimes I come home from work and I just need to unwind. Or I wake up, and I can’t even get my eyes to open. You know those nights where you toss and turn and feel completely restless? If you’re like me, I’m pretty sure this will be your new best friend.

I am not lying when I say that I’ve never slept better. This has become my new night-time (and morning) ritual, and I am obsessed.

This $26 oil diffuser is available on Amazon Prime (hello, 2 day shipping!) and only requires water and a couple of drops of essential oils. No hazardous incense or expensive candles over here!

You can buy the oils on my doTERRA shop or by emailing me at info@prettyprettypineapple.com.

Here are some of my favorite oil blends:

  1. Recharge and Rejuvenate… Lavender, White Fir, and Balance
  2. Uplift Your Spirit… Motivate, Elevation, and Lime
  3. A Day at the Spa… Lavender, Balance, and Elevation
  4. Home Sweet Home… Cedarwood, Cassia, Wild Orange

 

Natura Organic Wine

It feels like everything these days is organic. But why should you drink organic wine?

When I started investigating the differences between organic and non-organic wine, I was shocked. Pesticides, herbicides, sulfur additives, 30+ chemicals per vineyard leading to ground water contamination and toxicity. No thanks!

Then I found Natura. They are the #1 imported organic wine brand and are produced by Emiliana Organic Vineyards, the world’s leading organic winery. Their vineyards are 100% pesticide, herbicide, and fertilizer free. This means that they produce the purest, healthiest, and highest quality, organically-grown grapes around.

In addition to avoiding chemicals, their sustainable farming practices and respect for the land means that they will continue to grow organic grapes in Central Chili for many years to come.

This vegan-friendly wine retails for about $10-15 per bottle and can be found at wine.com or by using their online store locator. I tried the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and loved them both!

 

Against the Grain Gourmet Pizza

You guys! This pizza is the BOMB! Seriously, don’t be scared just because its “Gluten-Free.” I was skeptical, too.

You know that feeling you get after you have traditional restaurant or takeout pizza? A little groggy, really full, and usually sluggish? Well, that’s probably the gluten talking. Essentially, everyone is slightly intolerant to gluten, they just ignore the effects. Indigestion, stomach cramps, itchy eyes and runny nose, etc.

People usually avoid gluten-free foods because of fear that it will taste bad or like “cardboard.”

I was blown away when I tried this one. I discovered Against the Grain Gourmet Nut-Free Pesto at Whole Foods and it was life-changing! It is deliciously gooey, can be prepared crispy or soft, and is loaded with flavor. This is the best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had! 

I’ve purchased it at Whole Foods and Vons, but make sure to visit their online store locator to see where you can find it near you!

 

 

If you love this series, please comment below. Anything else you’re looking for? Maybe my favorite brand of running shoes or what supplements I take in the morning? Let me know and I’ll deliver!

xoxo,

Raquel
