This week I learnt that for every person that I'm frustrated with, there is at least one other person who is willing to help me get through the difficult situation even if it doesn't benefit them in any way; for every person who makes an unnecessary snide remark, there is another who sends words (and gifts!) of appreciation; for every 5 people who treat me like I'm invisible, there is one who lends a listening ear and gives me a pat on the shoulder. And most importantly, for every situation that seems impossible, there is always a way out.. . It has been one of those frustrating weeks but in spite of it all, my heart is very very full ❤️. #payitforward
Can I wake up to this weather pretty please? I’m currently going stir crazy waiting for spring 🙆🏻♀️ Anyone else feeling the same ? So today was my actual first day of my #arbonne30daystohealthyliving and I KILLED it ! The kids and hubby had a pizza party and I wasn’t even tempted 🤗 I’m so excited for these next 30 days !
Ok this is probably one of my favorite oils.. I like to call it my HAPPY oil because every time I use it and smell it, it just gives me all the happy feels🤗 It has a sweet scent and is a citrus oil like Lemon and Orange. . It contains VERY high levels of polyphenols. Polyphenols are best known for their antioxidant affects. Polyphenols are also used to lower LDL cholesterol (bad fats) and raises HDL (good fats) cholesterol. Statin drugs are a class of prescription drugs that do the same. Polyphenols are what make statin drugs...statin drugs! The levels of polyphenols in Bergamot, according to studies, are just as effective as your prescription cholesterol-lowering drugs. But one thing most of the prescription drugs DON'T do is raise the good cholesterol. Its just a one way street with prescription cholesterol controlling drugs. Guess what does? Bergamot! . . Some awesome uses! . ➡insect repellent-200ml water, 20 Bergamot, +/- rubbing alcohol or wtich hazel. Use half and half.

Have a great weekend! ✨ we’re daydreaming back to Thanksgiving time (when this photo was taken) when the weather was warm(er) and nice! We’ve been having major snowstorms this week. Also, to find my favorite links this week including the cutest, inexpensive swimwear line, the best store bought hot chocolate, an article on how to be less awkward, a yummy soup recipe and a beautiful strategy to end school shootings, head over to the blog.
