Hi, I'm Amanda...

Get on the List


  • My love for essential oils runs deep. I ditched candles and started using them when I was pregnant with my first child. During all of my pregnancies I’ve been super sensitive to fragrance and have gotten horrible headaches. Peppermint and Frankincense oils were the only way I kept my sanity every pregnancy. Head to my blog to hear more about why we don’t use candles or wall plug ins, the best diffuser I’ve found (price and performance wise **its even a humidifier**) and my oil storage containers that I use to display them. I’ve found that keeping them out helps me use them more frequently.
  • My sweet, shy, smart girl. I love you more than anything. I’ll never forget how quickly you joined us in this world and how I couldn’t imagine life without you in it. Your my little mini me. I can’t believe you are F I V E. Time flies. Happy birthday baby ❤️
  • Let’s talk about self confidence. This is something that I have lacked my entire life. Growing up I didn’t have that reassurance from my parents that I was anything out of the ordinary or had anything to be celebrated. Those feelings combined with being constantly bullied from kindergarten until I graduated high school really took a toll on my spirit. The bullying started with my hair bows is being too big, the fact that my parents were divorced or that we didn’t live in the country club in our small town. Once I got to high school where things got so much worse. Girls would call me horse face, lesbian, and even a whore. It was never ending and it honestly made me feel worthless and angry and I myself turned into a mean girl. I started saying ugly things and wanting to fight people or show that I could cut you down before you could do it to me. Even now, I have this platform that people mock because they don’t understand or roll their eyes that I “sell cosmetics on the internet.” It’s taken YEARS and years to get over the hurt and realize that I am wonderfully made in the eyes of God and not one person should make me feel shameful or less than. It does not matter what others think of me, it matters what I think of myself. I have three little girls who are going to encounter people who are heartless and will try to crush their spirit so I talk to them and myself with the same steady voice. “The enemy tricks us into believing we are not good enough because he knows if we discover the truth, we will be unstoppable.” Don’t worry about what others say, especially when they show no mercy and try to tear you down. YOU are special and have something to share with the world. You are a daughter to a Father who loves you and sees how amazing you are, no matter how broken or flawed you feel. His love will never leave you and will always be there, you are NOT ordinary or less than. Your story is significant and will change the lives of others. Be brave enough to show it and let your Light shine ❤️
  • So hyped to share this TIP with y’all! For years, I couldn’t wear eye makeup, eye liner or mascara without my eyes pouring water. I kept thinking that it must be seasonal allergies or the sun getting in my eyes but no, it was actually my bodies way of saying “take that toxic crap off your face!” 😡 I now know that carbon black is the main culprit of my eye irritation. And knowing this has lead me to finding a nontoxic eyeliner to really make my eyes POP! Head to my blog to read how I make my own liner and how you can too 🙌🏼
