Get Up, Wake Up, Get Out!



Getting ready for the school day or work day can be hectic.  And let’s be honest, it sucks.  It’s hard enough somedays to get yourself up and going and now school is starting and you either have to get little people ready too and/or (if you don’t have kids) you still have to deal with that annoying school traffic again.

Now I know some of you are Mary Poppins in the morning.  I swear my husband is.  But I, I am more like a gremlin when it gets wet.  It’s not pretty or pleasant. And my child has inherited this trait from me.

So, to help us all survive, the diffusers must be turned on the second I’m awake.

And I’ll be honest.  99% of the time the same oil goes in all 3-4 diffusers every time.

Citrus Fresh baby!

All the way(s) everyday!

It has such a bright invigorating aroma that you can’t help but crack a smile and feel better.

(Quick insight, it’s blend contains lemon, orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit and spearmint, so basically happiness in a bottle.)

This is definitely an oil you want to have.  Not only does it help you wake up and feel like your off to a great start, but because of each of the individual oils properties it can help you throughout the day just from using it in the morning.

By the time the kiddos are at school and you are at work, everyone’s creative brains may be functioning at higher levels, you may be more open to outside ideas and the prospect of having a mid-morning mental crash possibly are lowered.

I can tell you, they are for my munchkin and for me and the hubs.

Bonus: it’s a vitality line oil.  So, as you’re getting water for everyone to take with them, or tea, (never tried it in coffee) you can place a drop there to help you even further into the morning.

Basically, get up, wake up, and get out that door and feel good about it.

Happy kids, happy parents, happy day.

I’ll be back soon!

National Coffee Day!!

Something you should know about me, I LOVE my coffee. It gets me going every morning and gives me a pick-me-up when I really need a push to get through the day and I seriously don't function well without it.  So much so, it's kind of become a running joke with my family and friends. In fact,  my best friend, Miss Courtney , would greet me at the door in silence with a cup of coffee if I'd been up late the night before. She gets me. I'm drinking some now as I type this. When I started Intermittent Fasting, I was relieved to find that I didn't have to give up my coffee. I just had to switch to unsweetened and black, which wasn't too big of a deal, because I had completed a sugar detox a couple years before discovering IF. Through the detox, I became somewhat taste-sensitive to sugar where, depending on the food item, a little was almost too much for me anymore. As a result, my coffee was mainly just a little bit of cream anyway. It makes

Cough Tea

It’s that time of year.  The time that, to me, is worse than spring. The time that brings the fall cough!  You know the one. The one that never really goes away and you’ve had so long you’re not sure when it first appeared. It’s the same one that you don’t want to go to the doctor for because you’re positive it’s just something that has blown about with the change of seasons.  I like to call it the “allergy faker.”  Like Carly with her constant sinus fight, I have the constant cough fight. And although I always win, the shorter I have to deal with it the better.   I also have to think about the fact that I have a child and he and his friends are in and out constantly, and I’d really prefer they not share anything with me. Lord knows no parent wants to start that viscous circle of sick.  So, that’s where my favorite cough-away recipe comes in. It’s delicious, aids sleep and it’s for adults only!  Wellness Tea  and Whiskey, two new best friends.   Th

Social Media Lies

No, contrary to what you see on social media, my life isn't all fun times with the kiddo and date nights with the husband. I don't wear makeup and heels just to be around the house, although I am sure my husband wouldn't mind if I did.  I also don't plan every waking moment that my child is awake and not in school to be filled with outings to Chuck E. Cheese, ice skating or concerts.  Now, I know my child would be happy if I did, but that is just not realistic.                           I love sharing photos with friends and family and I want them to look nice.  I really am not sure why though.  I will totally and happily show up to your house in my most comfortable pair of sweatpants, ratty sweatshirt, no makeup and hair doing something, looking like Tom Hanks in the middle of Castaway, and I won't have a second thought about it.   And I am not alone in this dilemma of social media etiquette.  If that's what you want to call it.  I have scrolled thro
