    I took a break this summer…

     AM SURE THAT YOU NOTICED. Or maybe you didn’t because you decided to take a step back too. Either way, I did this because looking back at the last few years I realize how much stress I held in my life by trying to do it all. I have this desire to accomplish all the things I know I  C A N  do and it has ruled my day to day. God has really been working on my heart to stop leaning into that desire and focus on more of what he has planned for me.  The biggest thing that I realized is that my phone was taking a huge priority over…

    WHY IS GETTING ACTIVE WITH YOUR KIDS IMPORTANT?

    When you think of your children, do you think about how active they are? The average child is on a screen of some sort for 4-6 hours a day and teens heading up into 9 hours. That’s a lot of time to have them stuck in technology and can ultimately lead to a plethora of problems. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychology states that the following issues are associated with higher screen times: As screen time becomes more and more common, children are spending less time outside and most importantly actively moving their bodies. By children being active from a young age, it really helps them maintain a…

    Why I Decided To Get Hair Extensions Postpartum After Baby Number 6

    In early January, I decided to take the plunge and get hair extensions and I absolutely LOVE them. You’re probably wondering why I would do something like this so here it goes… For the past ten years, I’ve been pregnant or postpartum and my hair has seen better days. Every single time I have a baby, my hair goes through a major shedding stage to where I’m left with legit large bald spots and regrowth that looks like someone got a pair of scissors and gave me Barbie bangs.  NOTHING HAS HELPED MY REGROWTH to where I’ve been able to get long hair again. No amount of vitamins, supplements, hair…

    My “Healthy Gatorade”

    Imagine a healthy version of Gatorade. That’s Drink LMNT. But even better. Electrolytes are important. But why? These are essential minerals that your body needs in certain amounts to function its best. Electrolytes help conduct electricity through water in the body. Every time we sweat, also comes out the minerals in our bodies so it’s very important to replenish them. My household loves LMNT electrolytes because it’s easy, simple and salt-tayyyy. My absolute favorite is the watermelon salt. Personally, when I first tried this, I was like 😖 There’s 1000mg of salt in a packet but once you get used to the taste, you’ll actually crave it. I do suggest…

    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,…
