Give the gift of balance this Christmas season!

It’s gift giving time and its a great time to gift yourself and a friend cbd! I’m a huge fan of their oils, gels, relief cream and rollers. I just checked and their calming rollers are out of stock! I do not leave the house without either of these products. If you’re sensitive to taste, try the cranberry or mint drops and let me know which is your favorite!

1. Slippers 2. Robe 3. Relief cream 4. Season of intention 5. Daily drops in cranberry 6. Joy of sleep set

WHO: Equilibria CBD
WHAT: CBD oil is sourced from a flower. This flower is hand-picked and full of flavonoids, phytocannabinoids, and terpenes. What I find cool is how it works in the body.


3 Main Products:


Daily Softgels: These are taken like vitamins and are slow release. I take one after dinner or before bed. I sleep SO WELL. 


The Daily Drops: The drops are one of their fast acting products and the one I use most often. I hold the oil under my tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing to bypass the digestive system, which means fast absorption and faster results!  If I know I have an intense conference call or the general 4pm crazy hour, I make sure to “microdose” with the daily drops. I feel like the amount of oil in a full dropper is too much, so I’ll do 1/2 a dropper, usually at lunch. It tastes like the plant TBH. And the experts tell me that if it doesn’t taste like the plant, you probably have a bad source of CBD. Always check your sources! 


Relief Cream: This topical cream is for targeted relief. It has arnica, menthol, and a whopping 500mg of CBD in it! Reid takes the relief cream for his sore shoulder. He has tried so many things and this is the only cream that has brought relief. He even sleeps well on those nights his shoulder is acting up and he uses the cream. It’s a powerful cream that has helped my mom’s sore ankles and dad’s sore knees. I personally use it for period cramps, sore back, sore neck from holding Levi and sore feet after a day of wearing heels. (Sometimes you need to suffer for fashion.) 


WHERE: It is federally legal and single-sourced from a 1,100 acre organic farm in Colorado. All CBD is NOT created equal–there’s a lot of sketchy stuff out there, but their products are made on their organic farm from start to finish, ensuring each batch is 110% safe. They adhere to medical grade production standards–because you deserve the best!


HOW: Be patient because it may take up to three months to regulate the dosage and see your best results. I’ve been taking it since the end of January and am already noticing differences in my mood and focus. Stay consistent.
Equilibria is created by women for women. More exciting products to come! Click here for more information about Equilibria. Their motto is “For Women, By Women.” 

Buying Tips:
What should I do, a one-off or subscription?


I’d recommend the subscription of the Balance Box for the best value. Don’t worry, you can cancel at any time! I just buy the relief cream as needed. I just gave my mom one; she loves it!
Last but not least, they have given me a code to share with you!

I have had knee discomfort relief within 2 weeks of using it and awesome healthy full hair within 6 weeks.  Although results may vary and it is important to take your vitamins for optimum absorption, I’m seen very positive results in 3 months.

It dawned on my one day as I was applying expensive serum, that we are so concerned with applying collagen, HA, and vitamins to our faces that we forget we need to ingest hyaluronic acid and liquid collagen. Within 2 weeks of taking the liquid collagen, my knee discomfort had subsided. That’s saying a lot for a 37 year old mother of 5 children!
 
As promised, I told you all I’d let you know when the collagen sale would go live. Well guess what, they’re having a sale! The sale is good from November 16, to November 28, while supplies last!

You already know if you follow me on my blog and stories, that I’m a huge fan of liquid collagen. I have had knee joint pain gone within 2 weeks of using it and awesome hair growth within 6 weeks.  Although, the latter has afforded me more gray hairs and more need for coloring my hair. Who knew more hair growth means more work? I’ll take it.

Q and A – collagen

by Shalice Noel

Most of you know I’ve been taking liquid collagen. I have been taking vital protein collagen peptides since I was pregnant with Levi, but I recently ran out and decided to try something new. I had a couple followers ask me if I’ve tried liquid collagen since it has a 90% absorption rate versus 30% for a powder. I put it off for months and said not now, until a follower said, my husband co-founded this, can I send you some. WOW. Within 4 weeks, I had less knee joint pain, more hair growth, and my skin looks great. I sent some of my dad’s birthday, and he called me saying wow this has helped his knee joint pain SO much and that he wants a link to share it with his brother in MN! Please forward any additional questions. I love hearing from you!

Here are a sample of the questions I’ve been asked lately.

Can I just take the LIFE and not TRIM?

Yes! Some girls have 2 bottles of LIFE on smart ship, 2 tablespoons of LIFE a day equals 2 bottles a month. Take the LIFE, and you can experience all the benefits of liquid collagen!

When will I start seeing the benefits?

They say to give it 3 months, I saw less joint discomfort within 2 weeks of taking it, and hair growth (hello baby hairs!) at 6 weeks.

Which flavors do I buy?

I tried the chocolate in trim, but I didn’t like the flavor. However, worth noting, the chocolate is gluten free. I like the trim in lemon or mango, its tangy and yummy.

What’s the discount code?

 3697593 for $10 off or select “smart ship” for a discount!

Can I get a link?

HERE is a sample of my cart.

Give me the 411 on Trim . . .

Trim features an innovative first in the world combination of two leading technologies for a body transformation experience CLA to accelerate fat reduction and collagen HA matrix technology to improve muscle tone and restore youthful skin. CLA has been shown to decrease body fat. CLA not only supports fat metabolism, it actually helps block fat transport from the bloodstream into fat cells. Multi-patented award-winning Collagen HA matrix technology replenishes collagen and HA (hyaluronic acid) levels in a highly absorbable form restoring youthful looking skin and supporting joint and muscle fitness. What are you waiting for?

How does Burn work, what’s in it, and when do you take it?

I take one capsule in the AM with breakfast. It has caffeine so it gives me energy (for that afternoon slump) but no jitters.

Burn is a scientifically formulated thermogenic that increases your metabolism with a powerful blend of plant-derived, fat-burning ingredients.*

A potent coastal seaweed extract, fucoxanthin has been shown to promote fat oxidation. Burn contains three times more than leading brands.*

Berberine from the Indian barberry plant and essential chromium complete the trio of key ingredients. Both help to support healthy blood glucose levels within the normal range, to ultimately reduce unwanted cravings.*

Finally, olive fruit extract adds nutritional support while coffee bean and green tea supply natural caffeine. The result? Burn is so effective, we’ve included it in both the M3 weight management system and our Lean Body Sculpting System.*

Why is LIFE liquid collagen different? Give me the science behind it

It’s award-winning multi-patented and Collagen HA (hyaluronic acid) matrix technology is clinically shown to improve joint mobility reduce discomfort and promote healthy cartilage and connective tissue. It gets better . . . Liquid Biocell reduces wrinkles from the inside out and even goes an important step further — it helps reduce the enzyme that can make your skin age. How cool is that?

How do you take it?

1 tablespoon of LIFE and TRIM in the AM and 1 tablespoon of LIFE in the PM.

How do I get free liquid collagen? LOL Is that possible?

Funny you ask, YES! Use your referral code, add it to your Christmas card even, and tell your friends and family to use that code when they purchase. They get $10 off and you get product credits FOR FREE LIQUID GOLD.

Equilibria Q & A

by Shalice Noel

Many of you already know, I use my Equilibria throughout my day. I actually wonder how I lived without it? A certain amount of anxiety and sleepless nights is to be expected in these uncertain times. Therefore, CBD is essential right now for me as a mom, wife and business owner. Reid sees the biggest change in me when I don’t take it. I challenge you to take Equilibria CBD and then ask your significant other to see if they notice any difference.

Read more below on Equilibria’s safety and efficacy. Something I even questioned when I first heard about cbd.

Is Equilibria safe?

Just like beauty products, all CBD is not created equal when it comes to quality, efficacy, and safety. Because it’s not regulated by the FDA, new brands pop up every day with untested products and zero disclosure as to where they are sourced from- yikes!

Equilibria is different because of their dedication to producing the highest quality, ethically sourced, fully traceable, third-party tested CBD products. They own their own farm and supply chain, and oversee the production in-house from start to finish, following all the strict farming practices that a medical hemp farm would use—even though they don’t have to! 

Why you will get the most out of Equilibria products?

Two reasons why you will get the MOST out of Equilibria products: 

1. Their product is derived from the hemp FLOWER only. This is the purest source of CBD. Other brands also use stalks, stems, and leaves from the plant–but this is much lower grade and therefore results in a less quality product! Their formula is proprietary–meaning no other brand can replicate it. 

2. EVERY EQ customer is assigned to a dosage specialist who has a professional background in cannabis. (Think of her as your dosage COUNSELOR). She works with you one on one to understand your goals, and helps come up with a customized routine. Everyone’s bodies and needs are different–so there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” CBD routine!

Why CBD works for so many different issues: 

Fun fact: Humans have a series of receptors in their body called the Endocannabinoid System (or ECS for short). 

Our bodies naturally create molecular compounds called endocannabinoids that interact with these receptors by turning them on or off to help manage things like sleep, mood, pain regulation, and inflammation. The ECS directly affects the female reproductive system and its entire job is to maintain balance in our body by constantly regulating these receptors. 

As we get older, and we experience stress, our bodies stop creating as many of these endocannabinoids, which means our system stops functioning as well. How do we replenish those lost endocannabinoids to get the body back in balance? You guessed it–with CBD! 

This is why CBD is thought to be so effective in so many areas. When we use CBD, we are replicating what our body already naturally creates with a plant substance that does a similar job. Our bodies are already built to accept these phytocannabinoids as though they were made in our own bodies! 

Where to start once you get your first box: 

The EQ dosage team recommends starting with a 10mg softgel every morning after breakfast and 10mg (one full dropper/1mL) of Daily Drops in the evening. Remember, consistency is key! Finding the right dose for you can take some time, this is why Equilibria has a team of dosage specialists to help come up with the right routine! Make sure to set up a dosage consultation to find the right dose and regimen for you! I order the balance box every month and really like the convenience of it!

CBD may be right for you if…. 

  • If you wake up at night and can’t go back to sleep because your mind is racing
  • If your brain won’t turn off and prevents you from falling asleep 
  • If your patience level with your kids is negative zero and you’re pulling your hair out 
  • If you are really sick of Zoom calls 
  • If that looming work presentation makes your anxiety spike 
  • If your period cramps are THE WORST 
  • If you look at the time every day thinking, “is it time for wine yet?!” but it’s only 3pm

Beauty Counter is clean beauty

Growing up, my mom was a health and healthy lifestyle advocate.

We would drive miles and miles to a natural food store with dirt floors and pick up bulk food at a co-op. It was no question, that if the meat had antibiotics in it, we didn’t get it. We also made our own calcium pills from egg shells and HAD to drink the full glass of carrot juice, no chaser! I remember shopping with her and a butcher was laughing at my mom when she asked if there were any antibiotics in the meat. I even felt uncomfortable that she ALWAYS asked what the ingredients were or the mode of food preparation, especially when it was’t listed. In addition, she ALWAYS used clean beauty, lipstick without junk she said, and never were allowed to use conventional baby soap. All that to say, she was not only before her time, her actions are respectable. She was our advocate. She wanted to give her 4 children a legacy of good health and a healthy constitution, and guess what, I do too.

A PR company sent some Beauty Counter lipstick , and I guess you could say that changed everything. I didn’t just love it, I LOVED it!! It wasn’t just the perfect color, it was moisturizing, and minty. I only regret that my son got into it and the better half of it sits on his shirt. Since we eat 9 lbs of lipstick in their lifetime, I care about the amount of toxins in my lipstick. This is fortified with jojoba and castor seed oil. If you’re curious, they list the ingredients by the product description.

Atalie is going on 13 years old and there is NO WAY I am giving her junk in the form of toxins and things I can’t even pronounce.

Clean beauty is the future.

Did you know that Beauty Counter restricts 1800 ingredients from their products? That’s almost 2,000 ingredients you don’t want to put on your face or skin. Which is your largest organ. Whether you’re a cancer fighter, survivor, or concerned parent like myself, Clean beauty is the future. As far as makeup goes, I’ve always been a fan of the barely there and healthy glow makeup look. If someone is caked in foundation, you can see that, and I’ve worn it before and it feels like an unhealthy mask, I can’t wait to take off. I won’t name names, but the last time I used conventional foundation by a very well loved brand, I was sitting in church, 11 am or so, and my skin was tightening and I found myself looking in my bag for a facial spray because my skin was SO DRY. I want my makeup to have minerals in it, I want my makeup to help my skin not hurt it. I want my makeup to have vitamins that make my skin G L O W. because when skin in healthy it already glows with minimal makeup.

Learn more of their ingredient selection, HERE!

I now am a Beauty Counter distributor. Which means I get sneak peaks of cool products, discounted product, and commission to support my family. ASK ANY QUESTIONS.

I’m still learning about the toxic free revolution that Beauty Counter that has hit the beauty industry. My only regret is that, I started too late. If you’d like to make some side money and join my team, email me shalice@shalicenoel.com. In the meantime, I rounded up some favorite products I’ve used from skincare to makeup. . . .

Products I’m loving so far . . . .

Lotus Cleansing Balm – love this balm that melts off all my makeup!

Serum, goes on light with Vit C in it! A cult favorite.

This lipstick I WEAR EVERYDAY, just ask Reid. I get color “Be fearless” It gives me a go get em attitude, with color, moisture and mint. What more could a girl ask for? (ask me how to get a discount!)

Want a toxic free skincare regimen? I started using the Countertime Collection and loving the results. I have sensitive skin and my skin looks so healthy.

Just ordered concealer in Medium 1

Lip gloss in “peony” that my daughters both like

Ask any questions, thanks for shopping with me! Ask me how to get a discount, to get your toxic-free products! Sharing more of my healthy lifestyle and diet in this post.

All the best, Shalice

One thing is for sure, during this time of uncertainty, CBD has been helping me cope with stress and anxiety. I’ve been using Equilibria CBD since January and thought I needed it with 5 kids, a business etc. After this virus, I feel like I need it just as much if not more so. If you agree, read on, and if I don’t answer your question below, feel free to comment below or email me, shalice@shalicenoel.com. More information is on THIS BLOGPOST, so don’t miss it as I explain more of the science behind the CBD.

It’s a new site and I’m lost. What do you order?

I order the “Balance Box.” I get it monthly, can cancel at any time. Use code shalicenoel for 15% off!

If I take too much, will I get sleepy?

You will be matched with a dosage specialist who will help you determine what is your exact. I really enjoyed the phone call with my dosage specialist.

When did you start noticing benefits?

Right away! Some people are different so they say it can take up to 3 months to feel the full benefits. You should take it every day for optimum results.

I can’t do both, oils or gels?

Gels! They’re slow release and give me awesome sleep.

Do you take both, the drops and the gels?

Yes! I take a gel at breakfast, 1 full dropper at lunch, and 1 gel with dinner. The gels are slow release and the dropper is fast acting. You need both for great results.

What has been the biggest change since you’ve taken it?

Two things! Really good sleep and I don’t have the pit in my stomach anxiety I get occasionally.

What time do you take the gel, and how long does it last?

The soft gels absorb more slowly since they need to pass through the digestive system. But that means they also last longer in your system: between 5-12 hours.

Any more questions? Comment below!

Confession: my jeans are tight. I’ve been living in joggers and pj’s till 12 noon. Or later. However, I have started, by day 25 of quarantine, to get dressed, make my bed, and get some blog posts on here! I’m not a dietician, or doctor, but I have included some of my personal tips for avoiding gaining weight during this time at home.

DRINK LOTS OF H20

We need to train ourselves to drink water. We go through our days drinking coffee, smoothies, more coffee, and then we wonder why we have an afternoon headache. We are dehydrated! Here’s a tip: Drink 3 glasses of water before 12 noon. This helps a lot. You should drink a total of 8 glasses a day, and if that feels like too much, lemon water helps. Also, when I get a hankering for a peanut butter cup (more on this later) I make a (calorie-free) lemonade.

Calorie Free Lemonade

8 oz filtered water

1 lemon, squeezed

1 full dropper of stevia

5 cubes of ice

Mix all ingredients and enjoy!

Add Fab4 smoothie to your breakfast routine

I feel more fueled and focused when I have my Fab4 smoothie, originally published HERE.

#FAB4Smoothie: Protein (20g minimum) + Fiber (10g minimum) + 1 Tbsp. Fat + Handful Greens + 1/4 Cup Fruit + Superfoods + Liquid

2 scoops Vital Proteins collagen powder // 1 TB almond butter// 1 frozen banana // 1 cup frozen pineapple // 2 cups frozen organic spinach // 1 TB chia seeds // unsweetened almond milk // 2 meyer lemons (add at the end) //

Directions: blend till smooth in a vitamix or blender. I add the lemons at the end and drink immediately.

I explain more in this post about how I am changing the way our family eats.

Add a pilates ring to your routine

I place it in between my thighs while I sit for a thigh workout. Try doing it 100x!

Drink ACV

Add 2 tablespoons to water and ice and drink before a meal. Reid and I have one after dinner. Whenever it makes sense, just add this to your regimen.

American Eagle

MANGO

Nordstrom

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but Nordstrom is having a HUGE sale. I rounded up some favorites including my shoes on sale!

SkinCeuticals take 15% off!

As always, my shop page is open 24/7, ask any questions and let me know how you are staying fit and healthy during these times. What are your plans this weekend? Reid and I will take the kids to our friends’ pool to swim. Don’t worry, we will still be practicing social distancing. And thanks to the high temps, we will try our hand at margaritas! Will let you know how they go!

With the influx of new products and new devices that promise everything from tighter lips to tighter tummies to tighter everything, it gets a little confusing in the marketplace.

I was originally introduced to NuFACE products from my mom who gave me my first NuFACE mini device. Already familiar with the toning and lifting my NuFACE mini device did, I researched the body device. I’m always crazy about new beauty gadgets. Just ask Reid!

After I had Levi, I knew I needed to do something about my stomach especially, as it had stretched out for the fifth time! I must say, women’s bodies are amazing!

Instead of getting down on myself for having a less than desirable stomach, aka wrinkly with weird lines (Thanks Levi!), I decided I needed to do something about it. Without surgery, I knew that to get the stomach I wanted, required a good diet and exercise as well. 

How do you use the NuBODY?

I use it at night before bed. I even walk around with it because I’m a busy mom. It takes about five minutes after the application of the gel. I use it on my stomach in circular motions just as I do to tone and lift my face with the NuFACE mini or trinity device.

What are some tips for using my NuBODY device?

  • Results you FEEL instantly and SEE over time.
  • NuFACE is known for the instant lift you get with their facial devices. The same is not true for your booty, unfortunately! But after just 1 NuBODY treatment your skin will feel more firm and more energized, and with continued use, you’ll see the improvements over time.
  • You have to use NuBODY to see the results.
  • Like exercise, you have to do the crunches to reap the benefits. And with NuBODY, you have to do your 5-minute treatment 5 days per week to see the results in your target area. (1 stomach = 5 min treatment; 2 arms = 10 minute treatment.)
  • Quick and easy treatment.
  • Don’t target your whole body or you’ll be spending 30-minutes a day with NuBODY and that’s not reasonable for most. Target your arms, stomach, thighs, or butt; not all!  If you’re targeting dimples, you can just hold the device in place while you binge watch your favorite show or multi-task. Add some glides when it feels good, but it doesn’t need to be 10-minutes of movement.

What results have I seen personally?

I have seen my stomach more toned after I use the NuBODY device. See these before/after pictures. I love that I’m actually doing something for myself in the midst of busy mom life. Even if it is 5 minutes a day. Who doesn’t have 5 minutes? If you don’t, there’s a problem! It feels good to get a spa treatment AT HOME. So many times I have scheduling conflicts but would love a much-needed spa treatment. The founders of NuFACE are mothers and I’m grateful for a device that tones my stomach and smoothes the lines right in the comfort of my home.

FYI, there is a promo going on right now. No code needed, 2 free 10 oz gel primers with a NuBODY purchase, a $96 value. No code needed! Get your NuBODY here.

NuBODY // Prep-N-Glow sheets (great for cleansing while traveling) Gel Primer (leave on and hydrating)

The “After” picture. Taken 8 months after I gave birth to Levi. I used the NuBODY once a day in the evening.
