Iced Cinnamon Honey Latte

This iced latte recipe is cool and refreshing with a hint of cinnamon and sweetened with honey! Years back, we visited my little sister in the small college town where she was living and working at that time. There was a great little coffee shop with good coffee and amazing waffles. My favorite drink from…

DIY Faux Leather Lumbar Pillow

Slowly adding bits of coziness to the apartment out here in Colorado. I made a few pillows already and shared a bunch of affordable throw pillow options but when my cousin moved out here recently she was able to bring my sewing machine with her and it has inspired me to take on some sewing…

DIY Simple Perfume Recipes with Essential Oils

Making perfume at home can sometimes feel a little overwhelming – with the top/middle/base fragrance notes, should you use alcohol, if so, which kind…and it goes on and on. I just want something quick and easy to throw together, that doesn’t require a lot of overthinking on fragrance notes, uses ingredients I have on hand,…

    Can you please stop trying to sell people your MLM products?  Young Living is a pyramid scheme that sucks people in and ruins their lives through brain-washing and social control.  There are plenty of online resources about this that are easily accessed and understood.  This includes ways to leave and support groups to assist you with the transition.  
    While I appreciate that you want to do something that you believe is good for you and your readers, you are part of a machine that functions by furthering vulnerable women making poor choices.  While I realize that this will most likely be deleted, I hope that reading it will at least make you think about the negative impact your posts have on women who are far less privileged than you.Please feel free to email me if you wish ask questions or further the discussion.  I no longer am subscribing to the blog but will be happy to come back once the MLM posts stop.ReplyCancel

      I love the Young Living products that I’ve used (not all of them though – I’m definitely not brain washed or being controlled). 🙂 I just found a product that I love, and yes, am promoting it. Just like we do with so many different things in this space. Things we buy, things we make. If I find a product I like, I share it with our readers. It’s their choice to buy or not. Just like any product out there at any store. And yes, we do make money off of some sales, but that’s something we’re upfront about and part of how we make a living. There’s no pressure to buy into anything, but it is a personal blog, so yes, posts will come with personal thoughts and opinions. Mine is just that I’ve used a lot of different oils, and have been happiest so far with Young Living. 🙂ReplyCancel

DIY Round Coffee Table

Last month, after 4 months of being out here, I finally bought a big couch so all of the company I had over the last month would have a place to sit when they came to visit. Ha! I realized once I moved it in, I was also in desperate need of a coffee table…

    I love this! I’m intimidated by cutting a circle, but we used the same method to do a peach circle on a statement wall and it was pretty fun 🙂ReplyCancel

Waffle Cake with Whipped Maple Frosting

A while back I spotted a waffle cake in a wedding photoshoot, and ever since I’ve been wanting to make one. Because sometimes you need to make a pretty cake for the sake of making a pretty cake. And to try something new. With Mother’s Day coming up, spring brunches happening, bridal and baby showers…
