Jill’s Holiday Gift Guide

One of the ways that I work on bringing Bliss (our Dailey Method Word of the Month) into my life is by letting go of unease, trepidation or nagging thoughts that can creep into my mind. I approach this goal by turning my focus to the positive, both in regard to things in my life and also in the world. With this in mind, I search for things that help simplify my life, make me physically more comfortable and enable me to support making our world a better place- which all result in a more positive mindset.

I curated this holiday gift guide with some of my favorite things with those intentions in mind. I also reached out to get great discounts just for you- our Dailey Method community- because bliss can also be saving time and $$ on great holiday gifts from companies that make a difference – whether for personal self-love or for people that you love! Follow @daileymethod and @jilldailey on Instagram because for the next 8 days we have giveaways of these amazing products. All you have to do is like and comment on the post for your chance to win!

Dailey by Dino: You probably have heard by now, I’m a huge fan of Dino Apparel AND Suzanne Rijvenald, the brilliant mind behind the brand. I’m beyond excited to announce that we’re ending the year with a new beginning, by offering the first style of our much anticipated Dailey Lifestyle collaboration. As a soft launch (literally the softest ever!) of what’s to come in 2020, the Dailey Duster pictured above makes its debut right here! This first, of many pieces we’ll be rolling out over the next few months, I wanted this to wear over my workout clothes to and from the Studio and also to carry me throughout my busy days and into the evening. This gorgeous Duster is available for pre-order today through Monday, December 9th to ensure delivery to you for the Holidays. The fabric is called botanical cashmere-soft as cashmere but made from nature. This collaboration is our way to combine forces by using our passions to advocate for the wellness of people and the planet!

Vertly Bath Soak-  The Holidays can get CRAZY and what better way to prioritize self-love than to take time to and for yourself with a bath?  Vertly’s signature CBD soak helps with aches and soreness – whether due to exercise, travel or the daily stresses of life. And I love that I actually sleep better after using it. It features a unique combination of natural healing salts, minerals, cannabinoids and calming essential oil blends of lavender, lemon and clary sage. Believe me- this product is amazing! It’s a little pricey but much cheaper than a massage. It’s a great idea for a hostess or pampering gift for someone you love- even if that person is you!

Good Eggs: Mealtime is incredibly important to me for connecting with my kids and also for ensuring that they are eating healthy food. I love to cook, but honestly, sometimes I struggle with finding the time. One of the all-time best time-saving resources I’ve found is Good Eggs grocery delivery service. They take out the middle man so items are delivered to them fresh each day from local farms and companies and then delivered directly to your door*. And they have a huge selection of organic items and absolutely everything you need to make any meal special. It’s a huge time saver to order groceries online and if I order before 1PM I can generally get it delivered that same evening. Recently I’ve been ordering a lot of their meal kits which we all LOVE!  They deliver all of the ingredients and a recipe card so I still get to prepare the meal without all of the extra planning. And honestly, they’re incredibly affordable. In 30 minutes or less, I can actively cook and prepare a great meal for my family of 4 for $30 with oftentimes leftovers for the next day. The Vietnamese-Style Salmon Sandwiches are one of the many hits that are popular with everyone (and that’s not always an easy task!). When something supports me in feeling like a better Mom it’s a resource that’s invaluable.

EO night serum:

I’ve personally used EO products in my home and in my studios for years. I love the quality and affordability of their products. I was recently turned on to their Ageless Skincare Transformative Night Serum. It contains helichrysum and rose essential oils in an Argan Oil base. I love how smooth and moisturized my skin looks in the AM. I use it during the day sometimes too- great for when the weather changes and your skin gets drier. Along with loving their products I also hugely appreciate what they stand for as a company with their consistent efforts to care for our planet.

Here is their Mission Statement: For 23 years, we’ve been inspired to share our passion for nature’s pure essential oils. To blend their evocative scents with safe, natural, effective ingredients. And to live and work wholeheartedly, in a way that honors the well-being of all people and the planet we all share. Manufacturing plant-based body care products to guide us in choosing safe, natural, organic, and sustainably-farmed ingredients. We’re exacting – and fully transparent – about every ingredient in every bottle. Good for people, good for the planet and good for the community.

Busy Beauty Body Wipes:

Let’s be honest 🤫 sometimes I don’t always have time for a shower. I was turned onto these amazing Body wipes by Busy Beauty and they’ve helped me out on numerous occasions. They’re vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, and phthalates free!! And they’re big enough to help me feel incredibly clean and fresh when I might have only 3 minutes to make that happen. Yes, there is a waste component but living in California I’m also very conscientious in the value of saving the water it takes for a shower. I also appreciate the company’s goal to continue to improve the impact they have on our environment. Although the wipes aren’t biodegradable right now, their goal is to change that in 2020- so if not right for you now keep them on your radar!

Iris & RomeoBest Skin Days – I was recently gifted this product and have to say my skin loves it as a part of my skincare regime. I love that the 5-in-1 formula is a serum, moisturizer, sheer coverage, sunscreen, and blue light/pollution protector. It’s an instant skin beautifier that gives natural coverage and a dewy, glowy finish, while also protecting against UVA and UVB sunlight and oxidative stress caused from blue light. If you’re looking for something else to add into your regime to keep you moisturized and highly protected during the day I highly recommend it this product!

Quanta CBD muscle rub- If you do the Dailey Method you understand sore muscles! I love topical CBD products for just that purpose and Quanta is one of my all-time favorites! It has a great menthol smell (but you can get it without it if menthol is not for you), all natural ingredients of cannabidiol, arnica, tumeric and a proprietary blend of essential oils for maximum anti-inflammatory relief.

Tavi Holiday socks:  Oh what I would do without barre socks? Yes, I clearly have more than any one girl needs but it’s hard to resist when new designs come out? Especially now that TDM has partnered with Tavi Noir so I get to add some of my dream designs into their already amazing repertoire. One of my current favorites is our black feathered holiday style. We always need black socks- and little detail it makes class just that much more fun and foundation for your barre class that much easier! You can find these and/or other styles at your local Dailey Method Studio or….. enter to win one on instagram this week! 🤞

Happy Blissful Shopping!

Love, Jill

Word of the Month: LOVE

I know….. LOVE for February, maybe not so original?

Yes, we think of this month about Valentines day – the love we have for one another or for a significant other. It’s hugely important to have others in our lives that we love and what a beautiful thing to have a special day each year designated to celebrate that love. With that said, EVERYDAY should be a day we celebrate love for others and for ourselves! This is why we chose to focus on “Love” with our Dailey Method communities all month long. After all, it’s a proven fact that when you show yourself the love and kindness you deserve, it radiates outwards to your families, friends and out into the world.

How do you show yourself love? Do you take a few minutes each day to meditate and practice gratitude? Do you schedule your workouts and make time to strengthen your body? Do you nourish your body with food that makes you feel good? Find out what fuels you, inspires you and refreshes you. Do that, every day, because your body, mind and soul will thank you!

With the February Word of the Month “Love” I want to share with you some of the things that I, and we, at the Dailey Method love the most! These are things you can incorporate into your life to give yourself the love and self care you deserve. These companies love us too and have all shared a discount code with you to share their LOVE!

Dino apparel is one of my all time favorites – the designer, her story, her friendship and her products are crazy amazing! I honestly own the Dino everywhere pullover in 6 colors and their jumpsuit in 3. Suzanne’s tag line is “live softly” and believe me, in Dino – you do! Another bonus is that her garments are made from fabric to finished product in Downtown Los Angeles using family owned-and-operated makers. I love supporting family owned businesses, especially when women are at the helm.

Tula is my favorite new skincare company. They use probiotics (like vitamin A, C and E, blueberries and tumeric, to name a few) as the foundation of each of their products. Applying probiotics to your skin has been clinically proven to help promote hydration and clarity and to improve the appearance of inflammation. My teenage daughter and I both have used the products and both love and appreciate the visible results.

Riddle Oil – I am a huge fan of this Botanical line that was created with all skin types in mind. All of their ingredients are completely 100% USDA Certified Organic, Artisan Crafted and Fair Trade. This means they are good for us, for others and a BIG plus – for the environment! What’s not to love about that? Truthfully, I wear their scents every day. They smell amazing, but also are light enough that I can workout or be at the Studio and not be overwhelmed or offend others with scent. Muse and Santal are my two favorites. Riddle oil was also my gift of choice this year for Holiday gift giving!

20% Discount code: JDAILEY – Good now until March 31st

 

Project you This is an amazing book and website created by Neely Mack, a long time Dailey Method Student. She wrote this based on her own experience and experimentation on healing herself. Her goal is to help you achieve true health and longevity by engaging the three pillars of wellness – internal (nutrition and gut health), physical (exercise and sleep) and emotional and spiritual self-care – and that all 3 together will help your body act and feel younger. I find her so inspiring – and to look and talk to her – she truly epitomizes the image of health!

TDM Circular band

Of course I couldn’t talk about self love without the importance of taking care of your body. Your strength, alignment and flexibility are all integral components to true self care. We’ve added circular resistance bands to our repertoire recently that are only $8 and an amazing way to work on strength and tone of your hips, outer thighs and side seat. It’s also an amazing tool for gaining strength and stability for your knees. You can use them for a quick workout at home or if you’re an online subscriber we have a class on the site that incorporates the bands and we will be adding more soon! Additionally, here is a discount on a package bundle for all the equipment you need for your at home practice.

Go ahead and show yourself some love this month and every month. You’re worth it!

Summer Product Picks

The warm weather is finally here and with the changing of weather, I want a change or refresher of my wardrobe and beauty products. Here are a few of my current favorite picks to keep you stylish, glowing and having some summer fun. Enjoy!

 

Supergoop –  Refresh Setting Mist

Light and fresh with hints of rosemary, this spray not only defends you from the elements but sets your makeup in place and keeps you from feeling oily throughout the day. Beyond the face for me – I use it for hands, neck and décolletage.

 

 

 

Vintner’s Daughter – Active Botanical Serum

We refer to this product as “Unicorn Tears” – partially because of cost, but also the results! You may be skeptical and at this price, I was too. But I’m completely sold on this serum. They use botanicals as opposed to extracts and infuse anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, several nourishing fatty-acids and antioxidants into the serum. I really do swear by it. Because you’re a Dailey fan if you order from this link you get free shipping and a gift while supplies last!

 

Smith & Cult – Honey Hush nail lacquer

I adore this packaging – but also what’s in it (and what is not!) This is referred to as an 8-free polish, without a lot of the chemicals that most polishes have. It also lasts almost a week longer on my nails than other brands and comes in very chic colors. This is my current favorite for my hands. A nude with an attitude.  😂

Free shipping for this item too – lucky you!

 

 

 

Sonoma Playsuit

I love this jumpsuit and probably wear it a bit too often. I have a great print and a black one. I dress it up with heels or wear over my swimsuit with flip flops. Best travel piece I’ve ever had! And love that it has pockets. Plus, for our TDM family only, there is even a discount!! Use the code : DAILEY10

 

 

 

 

Koral – Muscle Tank and Lustrous Leggings

Now that I’m cycling I’m needing shorter tops that are lightweight and breathe. These tanks are perfect. The pants are incredibly comfortable and make your booty look amazing! (they run a bit small though so I would recommend ordering a size up.) I love the navy and wine colors.

 

 

 

 .

Beyond Yoga – Fade To Black Yoga High-waisted Legging and Bralet

This is my favorite new outfit! Great top to wear for Dare to Bare  (without being overly daring!) I’ve always been a fan of high waist pants and these are so comfortable and flattering. Love ❤️

 

 

 

The Farm Winery

The last important summer pick – wine! This is a natural and organic winery that uses dry farming which means zero irrigation. The wines are small batch and grown by family farms and artisans. And they’re cultivated in a manner that keeps the sugar levels minimal (they claim no hangover!) It’s a club, so you have to join to try it. Great wine delivered to your door? Nothing to complain about there.

 

The Dailey Method Holiday Gift Guide

cc-header-giveglow

It’s here again – the time when we get to give to the ones we love. I love the gift giving ritual of the holidays and picking out something perfect for each individual; but sometimes it can get overwhelming, expensive and can lose some of the fun. Especially if you’re a last-minute person. So, I thought I’d give you a few recommendations of some of my favorite things to help you with your holiday gift giving.

Bespoke– There is a reason their tagline is “The Box of Awesome.” I wrote about this company in my Father’s Day blog but it merits mention again. Men, I find to be the hardest to buy for and this site makes it simple and FUN. It’s a box membership you can join but you don’t have to commit to the ongoing membership. There are multiple pre-set boxes you can purchase for $45 that are of great quality and seem much more expensive than they are. There are also individual items and ideas for the men you adore. I got one for every single one of my male family members (and hope they don’t read my blog!)

LA made scarf– this may not look like much when you pull it out but quickly transforms into a cool edgy-looking scarf that will keep you really warm, at a price point any woman can love. It also transforms into a great blanket for the airplane when taking the red eye. Did I mention that these scarves are made entirely in the U.S.A.?

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-1-02-36-pm

Onzie high waisted pants– I know I’ve written about these before but I love them. The fabric is great and the high waist is incredibly comfortable. They come in several different hip prints (snake skin is my fave) and for workout pants they come at a great price!

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-1-03-35-pm

Argan oil– I’m a huge fan of argan oil. Saadia Organics produces premium, raw, authentic Argan Oil that is entirely cold-pressed by hand using traditional methods. Saadia Organics also supports the cause of hiring single mothers in Morocco at excellent wages in order to offer you oil that is truly making a difference in countless ways. I mostly use it on my skin but it’s great for hair, nails and safe for children and pets. If you use the code HAPPY15 you’ll get a discount at checkout.

Fitbit bracelet covers- great for your friends and family who may want to add a touch of style to their activity tracker when going from the studio to the office, or out to dinner.

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-1-06-10-pm

TDM gift certificates- give the gift of health? YES!!! What could be better to receive? It also gives you another excuse to exercise with someone you love. Pick up at your local Dailey Method Studio or online.

The Best Products of 2015

Today, I am sharing all of my favorite items from last year. I have shared some of these before… but the best remains the best, right?

Dino Skirt Pant

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 8.37.21 AM

This is knowingly one of my favorite brands. This item is not a 2015 item, it’s a forever item! I travel a lot and want to be very comfortable in the transition and these are the perfect pant!

All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 8.46.24 AM

This book is brilliantly written, educational (yes!) and thought provoking. I couldn’t put it down. And everyone I know that has read it has adored it too!

Terry Tea to Tan Stain

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 8.49.22 AM

I wear this daily for a bit of a highlight, it’s easy to apply and gives the perfect tint for winter or summer.

Lulu Designs Cuff Bracelet

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 8.55.45 AM

This was the birthday gift for all of my teachers. I wear mine almost every day layered with other metals from her collection. My teachers feel “in the club” when they wear it. Now you’re invited in the TDM club too!

Onzie Leather-like Leggings

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 8.59.44 AM

I love high waisted pant and this fabric is so hip and flattering. I wear these probably more than I should!

Rag and Bone Booties

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 2.16.34 PM

I have a couple of these in different styles. Perfect heel height, perfect ankle height, and perfectly comfortable. I LOVE!!

TDM Moon Muscle Tank

TDM

I love everything about this tank – it’s look and feel and it’s message! Check with your local studio to get one for yourself!

I look forward to continuing to share the best of the best with you!

— Jill
