Ritual Multivitamins

I’ve been taking Ritual vitamins for awhile now and I love them. They’re made for women, by women and I truly trust this brand. These vitamins only contain the essential vitamins/minerals that women need, nothing extra. An added bonus is that they’re the coolest looking pill ever, and you can sign up for a delivery subscription so you never run out! For my full review check out this post.

Four Sigmatic – Mushroom Coffee

Four Sigmatic makes mushroom coffee, cocoas, and other elixirs. If you’re looking for a super food and healthy alternative to some of your favorite drinks, definitely check them out. My favorite is the Lion’s Mane Elixir, and I always add a dash of vegan creamer! You can use my code LivinglikeLeila for 10% off or use this link for $10 off, whichever saves you more money!

My Favorite Amazon Purchases

I have put together an Amazon store of all my favorite purchases! Amazon is seriously the best, and I’ve found some life-changing products. From personal development books to bamboo toothbrushes, you’ll definitely find something worth trying. All items I have actually purchased and use!
