Fall and Winter are my favourite months to diffuse essential oils! Below I’m sharing some of my favourite blends that you can diffuse and have your home smell like Fall. Great thing about essential oils is not only do you get amazing scents but you also get the health benefits!

Of course, not all oils are safe for everyone!  I have made a point to note which blends are not safe for certain people/ages.

A while back I had the pleasure of doing a FB Live with Christina Beckett of Sleek & Sassy Nutrition! We chatted all about sugar. So today I thought I’d share the interview with you all!  I know sugar is always such a hot topic so hopefully this helps clear up some of the confusion for you.

I was breastfed as a baby and just always assumed that unless I was actually unable to, I would choose to breastfeed my own children. I understand that this isn’t a choice everyone makes and I’ll admit, sometimes I do feel frustrated when I see a mom choosing formula because she’s afraid breastfeeding will make her nipples weird (or something to that affect) because to me that’s not a strong enough reason to deprive your child of something that is SO SO good for them!

  1. High Powered Blender – Personally I have a refurbished Vitamix and I LOVE it! I use it at least once a day. It doesn’t completely replace a food processor but for smoothies it can’t be beat.
  2. Essential Oils – I’ve linked to NYR Organic since I represent them but there are lots of great companies out there. No, there is not ONE company you must buy from or that has the “best essential oils”.

I turn 30 on July 11! The big 3-0!

Honestly, I’m excited about it.  For the most part I’m really happy with where I am in my life, at this age.  I feel comfortable going into my 30’s and that’s a good feeling.

I always make a wish list for my birthday. Not because I expect gifts but because I like lists. haha This year’s kinda made me chuckle because it’s so grown up.

For Winter, I get ready by buying things like scarves and gloves but Summer? Summer means changing up my beauty routines!  Bring on the sunscreen, bronzer, foot scrubs etc!

Luckily for me, I’ve discovered a lot of wonderful products to help me feel more prepared for Summer!  These products are cruelty free and on the more “natural side” (low rating on ThinkDirty and EWG Skin Deep!)… because last thing I need to do is smear potentially dangerous chemicals all over myself!!

I always say that wellness (and health) is a journey; it’s not about a destination.  So while I consider myself to be a healthy person, I am always looking to improve and grow!  For me healthy and wellness isn’t so much about what I weight or the exercise I do or even just the food I eat… it’s about how I feel overall! And that is something that is always going to take work.

I didn’t make any big drastic changes in 2016 but every small thing I did definitely added up!
