Getting intentional with gift cards ✨
I used to receive gift cards and spend them immediately as a “treat yo self” moment. Since starting to become more intentional with my money and purchases, I’ve begun to put a lot more thought into my gift card use. I save them, plan out when I’m going to use them, and put them towards things I need. These gift cards from my birthday in November and Christmas covered my mani pedi today for our engagement photos on Friday. 💅🏼
Just because I didn’t use them right away doesn’t mean I enjoyed them any less. If anything, I got more joy and satisfaction from this gift by being intentional in how I used it. I know this person’s gift didn’t go to waste and am so thankful to be able to put it to good use. My nails looking good was a priority for me (hello ring pics 💍) and I was able to do that without adjusting our budget. Our engagement pictures will last a lifetime and I’ll always know these gift cards helped make them possible. 📸
What do you do with gift cards Are you team use them right away or team add them to the budget
BARA has been called many things. Magic. A game changer. A miracle. It’s one of those products I know I’m not alone in refusing to live without. -
The name BARA means Rose in Japanese. It’s also used in the Old Testament when referring to creation. In contrast to words used with a similar meaning, BARA is used only when deity is either a subject or the implied subject. I don’t consider myself religious. I’d say I’m spiritual, but I carry a deep reverence for language, especially when I’ve traveled to specific parts of the world and been immersed in a culture for a time. Always a profound experience. -
Back to BARA. I chose this name because BARA is more heavenly than something I, a mere mortal, can take credit for. The experience of opening a jar of BARA is incredibly delicious; the texture, the aroma, and the effect it has on the skin...
Infused for 6 weeks with chamomile, calendula, marshmallow root, and lemon balm and comprised of oils that absorb effortlessly. BARA provides nourishment as well as protection. It helps rebuild the lipid barrier, is excellent for use with stone tools or fingertips during facial massage (tamanu + sea buckthorn are highly regenerative), and it’s a balm for cuts, burns, and around the delicate eye area. One ounce will last for quite a while. Use it over POLLEN as your only moisturizer, over the top of NECTAR, mixed with POLLEN in your palm as an on-the-spot lotion, or overnight as an intensive herbal moisture mask. -
