Welcome

What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Fall Diffuser Blends


Hiiiiiii friends, this week's post is dedicated to cozy fall diffuser blends. If you didn't already know, I'm signed up with young living and love them. I barely share about it because didn't want people to think that I am just trying to constantly sell them something. It's something I struggle with, but have decided that because I love using oils, I will share more about them. I am no longer avoiding things that people may not like. It's been a process, but I am finally here.

Soooooo, yah! I have been using oils for a while (read about the beginning of my journey here). I tried oils that were on the market and liked them for a while and then I decided that I wanted to sign up under young living because they have a pretty awesome rewards program. I am loving it and after a year of doing this oily life by myself, I'm looking to build a little team of like-minded women.

If you're looking someone to sign up under & for a no-pressure kinda team, you've found it. I am all about ordering oils when you want to order oils and not about the profits. I want to build an authentic team that is weary that oils do not solve all our problems -- but they can help fix a lot of them and aid us in a more toxin-free lifestyle if we're willing and wanting (because that's important too). I also want my little team to be an actual community that talks about more than just oils -- so if you're a winging mom of multiples, love jesus, baking and are curious about + want to try oils. let's get you signed up here.  

Do not hesitate to reach out and ask questions if you have some for me. I'd love to chat, get to know you a bit better, and answer them for you. now, about those fall diffuser blends -- here are some of my favorites.

Skincare | 3 Cleansers I'm Loving Right Now

If you've been a long time reader, you've probably read that I need to start a skincare routine in every single new year resolution post I right. And while I am terrible at keeping these resolutions, the skincare resolution finally was accomplished this year. I am a newbie as they say and would not count myself as a beauty blogger just yet. However, I'd like to share three cleansers that I have stumbled upon and am currently loving. 


Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm | $15

this is my go-to when it comes to cleaning my face. the first step in my skincare routine as this helps get off most of the products on my face. this product is formulated with sea buckthorn oil, camellia oil, and shea butter. it melts on contact with skin to dissolve makeup, dirt, environmental pollutants, and other impurities and rinses away with just water, leaving skin comfortably clean—not tight, dry, or stripped which is a big thing for me! 

I alternate between the next two products depending on what I feel like my face needs that day / night. 


First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser | $21

this product is for days when my skin feels like it needs a break or is about to break out. I've noticed that I tend to break out around that time of the month and so a few days before my cycle arrives is when I would reach for this. I love that it's gentle and yet still powerful enough to clean my face. 

Murad's Essential C Cleanser | $40 

this has been a staple the moment it arrived in my FabFitFun box. I grab for it each morning and it smells heavenly because of the citrus oils in it -- so that's a bonus. This cleanser is gentle on the skin and leaves my skin feeling super soft. This cleanser lathers + foams up nicely and does a great job of washing away any leftover makeup the cleansing balm missed.

❊ per usual, I want to insert a little note here stating that some of these links are affiliate links meaning that I make a little commission if you decide to purchase through them. other products were sent to me via PR boxes and some products I bought myself because I wanted to try them out. regardless, this is not a sponsored post -- all products shared in this are because I truly love them and all opinions shared are 100% my own. also, I just wanted to say that there is no pressure to buy anything ever, but if you do, I really appreciate your support as this is one way I can support my little family financially. every click, like, buy, save, tweet and pin mean the world to me and I am so thankful for each and every one of you!
