S3 Ep4: Kristen S. James, Sacred Esoteric Healer

If Kristen S. James weren’t the most calming, loving, kind soul I’d ever met, I’d probably hate her. Kristen is what I like to call a modern mystic: she’s one part goddess hair stylist, one part sacred esoteric healer. Her form of energy work is hard to put into words, though the type-A in me totally tries to in this episode. At its core is a belief that we are all already whole—just the way we are.

Burt’s Bees Holiday Gift Sets

Great Holiday Gift Sets under $10 at Walmart! Why we love this Burt's Bees Essentials Holiday Gift Set | Beauty Bets

My holiday shopping list always includes a handful of people who deserve a little something from yours truly—like freelancers I work with regularly, my hair stylist, our favorite dog walker—who I love and appreciate and want to remember during the holidays! This list seems to grow longer every year, and yet I don’t want the gifts to become less thoughtful.

For these little “I appreciate you” gifts, my go-to will forever be holiday gift sets from my favorite brands. It’s perfect when its a brand you love, and you’re able to let someone you care about try a little handful of their products for themselves. You can find a variety of perfect holiday gift sets at your local Wal-Mart or Walmart.com, this adorable set from Burt’s Bees included!

Great Holiday Gift Sets under $10 at Walmart! Why we love this Burt's Bees Essentials Holiday Gift Set | Beauty Bets

At a perfect price-point of $8.88, I was able to scoop up ten of these Burt’s Bees Essentials Holiday Gift Sets to have on hand this holiday season for that growing list of people in my life, as well as a couple extras to have as hostess gifts during our holiday travels! I love that this set has five wonderful products that are natural and filled with great ingredients, and is from a brand everyone knows and recognizes (guaranteed not to get tossed or re-gifted!)!  My favorite product in the kit is the Burt’s Bees Hand Salve, which is an absolute savior during our dry Midwestern winters, and I know the recipients will think of me every time they slather it on! The salve has a great herbal scent, and helps hydrate skin with botanical oils while preventing the loss of additional moisture with beeswax. Alongside the Hand Salve you’ll find four other Burt’s Bees all-stars in the Essentials Kit including:

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream: moisturizes your feet with coconut oil while rosemary and peppermint extracts soothe and refresh.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Balm: A long-time cult favorite, this balm delivers with a beeswax base loaded with Vitamin E and peppermint oil.

Burt’s Bees Body Lotion with Milk & Honey: The perfect all-over moisturizer for dry winter months, this combination of milk, honey, vitamin E, coconut oil and grape seed oil helps moisturize skin for 24-hours.

Burt’s Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream: a gentle, natural cleanser that provides deep cleansing with the power of Soap Bark.

Live From New York


There are at least two things I never let myself dream about: finding the love of my life and moving to NYC. They were too big, too much to hope for, and I was content with my full, single-girl life in Minneapolis. Then, through a series of miracles big and small, I got both. A husband who makes everything make sense, who makes me make sense, and a cozy brownstone in Brooklyn we get to call home as of last week. The wedding, the decision to head East, and the move all happened within a matter of weeks, I’ve hardly had time to process let alone get a thoughtful blog post up! (You can, however, peek more wedding pics on Instagram by the crazy talented Woodnote Photography).

Now that we’re here, I’m looking forward to catching my breath, making a home from all the boxes, and exploring all of the adorable boroughs. Everyone asked if I feel overwhelmed by this place and surprisingly, the opposite is true. I’m so at peace and full of anticipation because I know this is where we are supposed to be! Where the next chapter of life begins! In fact, I have entire journals scribbled with stories of synchronicity, of magic, of signs from the Universe leading me to my Ty, to leave my job and start a podcast, and to our new home in a city that has long whispered to me.

There’s too much to share in one post, and so much is yet to unfold. But it’s a story I looking forward to writing when the time is right. For now, I’m here, I’m happy and I’m excited to see so many of you in NYC! Please comment below or drop me a line at elizabeth@beautybets.com with any healers I need to meet, spas I need to check out, or pizza I need to consume! 

Namaste,
Elizabeth

From a very early age, she has studied everything from Hinduism to Holistic Medicine, Christianity to Quantum Healing Hypnosis. Today Maia helps others connect to the Divine and to the truth of their lives—both present and past.
