    TWO THINGS EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR PANTRY TO HELP WITH A COUGH

    Fall is the time of year that germs and sicknesses tend to ramp up. WIth everyone back in school, eating more sugar than real Whole Foods and not getting lots of direct time in the sunshine, immune systems are at a new low and are more susceptible to getting a cold. So many people I’ve talked to are dealing with all the things being passed around and especially coughs. I do feel like there is a need for modern medicine if symptoms are VERY bad but for the most part I do believe that most things can be handled at home. Coughs are interesting to treat because how different they…

    Why I made a commitment to take CBD daily

    For the last few months, I did an experiment on myself. I tried CBD during my postpartum because I felt like I was drowning. And guess what… it helped me remember that I knew how to swim. Never in a million years would I think that I would be sitting here, writing a love letter about CBD but here I am, a TRUE believer of what it can do for us because I have seen it first hand since my sixth baby was born.  I’ll explain… my husband picked up A LOT of jobs this summer, I am thankful that he was able to do that to help us financially…

    My Non-Toxic Lipstick Recs

    One of the biggest reasons that I am so passionate about clean beauty and skincare is because of the lack of regulation in the beauty industry. As a consumer, I was under the impression that if it was available to purchase in a store, that the products on the shelves were safe for my use but unfortunately that’s not the case. The last major federal law that regulates the beauty industry was passed in 1938 by President Rosevelt. The same beauty industry has grown to $511 billion dollars! That’s a very large market with many ingredients that have not even been tested for human safety. With the lack of regulation,…

    How I Made Meal Prepping Non-Negotiable

    Meal prepping. Some people love it and some people hate it. I used to not want anything to do with it. As a mom of six, I’ve found that this is a non negotiable for us. When I don’t do it, even the littlest amount, it makes life crazier. One thing God has taught me in life is to never say never and really take time to find practices that will make my life flow easier. Work smarter and not harder, does that sound familiar?  I was at a point, not to long ago, where I really struggled to do all the things, especially when it comes eating healthy and…

    Why Women Should Rest Postpartum to Heal Properly

    “Do you want to wear an adult diaper for the rest of your life?” I’ll never forget my midwife asking me this after I had my fourth baby. It was a wake up call for me because I had never truly taken the time to rest after having my first 3 babies. I did struggle physically, emotionally and spiritually and I don’t want that for anyone else. So why should we rest postpartum and not get back into the swing of our normal routine? 1. Rest is key for physical healing. If you take the time to rest after giving birth it helps your wound stop bleeding around 2-4 weeks…
