Allergy Relief Lavender Lemon Bath Bombs

This time of year is full of so many things that drive people’s allergies pretty crazy. My seasonal allergies are all over the place this time of year. My nose gets really stuffed up, I sneeze a lot, and my eyes water constantly. I need some way of relieving these symptoms and one way that I have really loved getting allergy relief is with lavender oil and lemon oil. That is when it hit me that I need to make a bath bomb with those essential oils to create an allergy relieving bath bomb!

How to start running

If you have followed my story for a while, you may remember when I first started running about 2 years ago.

How to Start Running

I had NEVER, ever been a runner before. In fact, I would have full on asthma attacks when I would try to run. I just classified myself as a “non runner” and moved on. Then one day I just decided to try jogging a little. I would jog until I couldn’t jog anymore and then walk, then jog again. This would only be about 1-2 miles and I had to take lots of walking breaks. Eventually, I worked my way up to my very first 5k that happened on my 27th birthday. [Read more…]

Mother Knows Best!

Tracking Pixel
It is kind of hard to believe that Mother’s Day is this weekend! This year is already flying at an impressive speed for me. One major reason for my time flying by has been the addition of Miss Zoey into our family. I am honored to have Hyland’s sponsoring this post.

It has been five years since I had a baby, so although I have done this all before, it was all pretty new to me again! Babies are a lot of work, but they bring so much joy into a home. When I would have late nights, early mornings, or just would struggle with the adjustment of having another child in our home, I always knew that I could rely on my mom.  [Read more…]

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

My husband used to be an elementary school teacher. It was always interesting to see what kinds of gifts his students would bring him. A lot of times, he would end up with loads of candy. Candy is nice, but there is only so much candy one person can take before it gets a little old! When it was time to come up with a gift to give my daughter’s preschool and dance teachers, I knew I wanted to give them something practical and personal. That’s when we came up with this darling handwritten water bottle teacher gift idea!

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

These water bottles turned out just so sweet with this little 5 year old handwriting and artwork. I know that they will be treasures for her teachers and will be sweet reminders of my daughter each time they use them. I think the best part was just how simple they were to make! Here is what you need to make your own… [Read more…]

Healthy living for our dog, too!

I’m sharing #NUTRO in my life as part of a NUTRO sponsored series for Socialstars™

We have been very public about our health journey over the past year. We have learned so much about the foods that we put in our bodies and it really has been a pretty incredible journey so far. I started to wonder if there was also more that we could do for our dog. I don’t claim to be a pet expert, but I know the food that we were feeding her wasn’t the best food that we could have been feeding her. What was very eye opening was the fact that she would knock all of her food all over the floor.

It was like she was trying to tell me that she didn’t want to eat the junk that I was putting in her bowl. I would get so frustrated [Read more…]

It’s Important to Be Nice: Be Kind Outfit

This post contains affiliate links.

I remember my mom teaching me from a very young age, just how important it was to be nice. I vividly remember my mom taking a friend home from a play date because I wasn’t treating my friend nicely. I remember standing in the garage, screaming in tears as I watched my mom drive away to take my friend home. I will never forget that moment, but it taught me a very valuable lesson that day. It is important to be nice!

I absolutely adore the “Be series” shirts that Cents of Style offers. They are full of positive affirmations, like this Be Kind shirt. For me, this shirt is the most relevant for the phase of life that I am in. If there is absolutely nothing else that I could teach my daughters, I want them to be taught that it is important to be kind. Being nice to people doesn’t mean that you get walked all over. Some of the most kind people I know are also some of the strongest people I know!  [Read more…]

Simple Postpartum Beauty Routine

Everyone knows that once a baby comes into your life, you don’t have much time for yourself anymore. That is definitely the case at our house. I am pretty much sprinting from one thing to the next, all while getting covered in baby spit up all day. It is hard to feel even moderately glamorous with a baby in the house. Thankfully I have found a nice little routine that has really helped me to feel great, without taking a lot of time out of my day.

I have found that if I keep my core beauty items in a bag all together, it is more likely that I will get my beauty routine done each day. I can grab my bag and get ready while I am waiting in the car at preschool pickup, at my daughter’s dance class, or even just in the playroom while my daughter wants me to watch her play. I have made it a point to try to get ready each day so that I can feel a little more human! [Read more…]
