How to Make Bath Bombs for Colds and Sinus Relief

I am SO excited to announce something pretty huge coming this year! After receiving several requests to share bath bomb recipes, I will be sharing a new bath bomb recipe once a month! Each month in 2017, I will bring a new bath bomb recipe that is themed for the month. I have some really fun bath bomb recipes and ideas in the works for you! To kick it all off, I have the perfect bath bomb recipe for cold and flu season! This bath bomb helps clear out sinuses and relieves achy muscles at the same time. They can be used like traditional bath bombs or they can be put in the shower to steam up and clear out your sinuses if taking baths isn’t your thing.

Fighting Sickness

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

I’m not sure if it is because of the junk food I ate over the holidays, the pregnancy, or the weather, but I have been fighting a lot of sicknesses lately. Thankfully I haven’t had many places I needed to be, since I am just waiting around for this baby to come. The hard part has been knowing that I need to be getting my sleep before I have a newborn, but my body not allowing me to get the sleep I need because I have been so sick!

Feeling My Best This Flu Season

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

There have been so many people around me who have already been hit with the dreaded flu. I swear flu season comes earlier and earlier each year! This year, I am paying extra attention to my health because I am 29 weeks pregnant and the last thing I want is to have the flu!

Peace of Mind When Kids are Sick

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of TempTraq. All opinions are 100% mine.

Unfortunately, the time of year has come upon us. That time of year when illness seems to be making its waves through each family. If you are lucky, you family will only get hit by an illness once during cold and flu season. We don’t ever seem to be that lucky at our house! I hate seeing my child sick. As a mom, I feel so helpless!

It also seems to never fail that I am the next one to get sick after taking care of a sick child. I think a huge reason why I get sick is because I don’t sleep very much when I have a sick kid to take care of. Even when that child is sleeping, I feel the constant need to check on them and make sure they are alright. It gets exhausting really quickly! [Read more…]

Fighting off a cold as a mom

I felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

Mom’s shouldn’t be allowed to get sick. It just seems unfair to get sick when you have so many things that need to get done in order to keep your family functioning properly. Unfortunately, you can’t take a day off as a mom to heal. That’s why it is so important to start fighting a cold when the symptoms first start making an appearance.

Surviving a Cold as a Mom on

Since I can’t take an entire day off to get myself feeling better, I make sure to keep a few things on hand so that I can start the healing process as soon as I start feeling the first symptoms. All of the items I keep on hand are things that are great for busy moms because they don’t require you completely stop your routine. [Read more…]
