Hey so you may have noticed that I had started to fizzle out on my goal to write 2/3 posts a week. I started out well and had them written and posted every week. Atround the end of the month I’d gotten overwhelmed and pulled away.
Why did I get overwhelmed?
Well easy answer, I just do. Cheerleading has been time consuming, we even went to our first competition. We weren’t as prepared as we should have been and we deff need to add more stunts and skills. We had to cut off the end as they learned it the night before. Another thing that happened maizy was being uncharacteristically aggressive towards tigre. So when I was home I kept her tied up on a leash. I’ll explain later. I couldn’t do much. I’ve just been struggling to find time.
Right, so… I am going to again. I decided that I am going to make new goals for in February while still keeping my ones from January. I’m still going to try and keep posting more often and posting on Instagram everyday. But I am going to add another one to this list.
- Declutter- I swear I’m a borderline hoarder. I hold on to everything. I have a few boxes of things that I will probably never touch. I’m just not going to have any use for them. But do I throw them away? No I pack it up and let it take up too much of my limited space. I would like to stop saving things that I don’t need.
- Be more orginized- If you were to go into my tiny cramped room you will notice that I have clothes everywhere. Clean clothes in baskets and dirty all over the floor. More clean ones crammed in and on a tiny dresser. I’m not proud of this, I need to figure out to keep things organized.
I think I’m going to stop there. I’m still going to try and keep up with my blog and Instagram maybe tweet more too. Mostly my goal is to clean more. With only one week left in cheerleading and this time until fall it going to be easier.
I’m not going to lie being away from the house from 7 am till after 8pm it’s really hard to keep up with the house work. But I’m working on it. A big help is that I’d signed up for the Grove Collaborative. Being able to buy safer natural cleaning supplies online is the best thing. In my first order I’d gotten free with the VIP trial several Mrs. Meyers brand products and I had picked out a bunch of Method products.
Tell me what are your goals for this month? Leave them in the comments. Also any orginization tips would be awesome.

Hi guys! Some of you may know that I love essential oils. I was hesitant at first because seriously how can a smell cure what medicine didn’t even help? Last summer I jumped on to the young living bandwagon and I haven’t looked back. Now yes young living is one of those paramid things where you try and get more people below you to make more. But you don’t have to do it as a business. You can just enroll and reap ths benifits of doscounted oils. I want to tell you about my favorite oil. Lavender oil.
I’ve been a long time fan of lavender essential oil. I first tried it about 5 years ago, my anxieties were so bad it was painful I was signed up to volunteer at a summer camp with church I didn’t want to go back on the medication* so I thought I would try essential oils. Lavender oil is soothing, and can lull you to sleep, calm anxious nerves and it has a ton of bacteria killing abilities.
I’m not going to lie I didn’t love the smell of it, and it took a bit to get used to it. Once I did, I loved it. It smells comforting and soothing.
I started using it by rubbing 2-3 drops in my hands then running them through my hair. I’d also taken a bit of felt and glued it to the back of plastic BFF necklace my niece gave me. I also put it in my diffuser and let them comforting smell soothe me to sleep.

Where do I get it?
I purchase my oils through young living. They don’t reccomed using oiles from like the grocery store since the FDA doesn’t check them so there’s no way to know know what you’re getting is pure and safe. Young living has a seed to seal promise. Where they gurantee that it’s pure and safe.
If you’re interested you can sign up and purchase your own Premium Starter kit (which includes lavender) here. When you do you will also beavlebto purchase

Last summer I’d made the decision to bleach a bunch of my hair so I can color it a pastel lavender. Um. It was a bit of a mistake. My hair did not take well and I was left with a lot of damaged hair. But thanks to L’Oreal Paris Elvive Rapid Reviver that damage is being repaired.
What is Elvive Rapid Reviver?
The L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver is a deep conditioner for damaged hair. With a 20% conditioning serum and almond + protein to help fortify each strand, reinforcing the hair fiber this repairs 2x more damage then other conditioners. This product is so quick to use. All you have to do is after shampooing apply from the middle to ends of your hair and rinse after only 1 minute.
Why I like it.
I am loving this! For awhile my hair was so damaged it was constantly tangled. Which if you’ve been around for a while you’ll know that I hate brushing my hair. I think the only thing I like less the brushing my hair is when it’s tangled. I had accepted that that was how my hair is going to be until it grew out enough to cut it off. Thankfully I’d received an offer to try the L’Oréal Paris Rapid Reviver deep conditioner. You have no idea how happy this product makes me. I was able to notice a difference after just one use. My hair is soft, smooth and essentially tangle free. Another great thing about this is that it has such a dreamy lovely scent.
What I don’t like
If I’m being totally honest, the only thing I don’t like is that I couldn’t find the matching shampoo.
Would I recommend it to a friend?
Yes absolutely! This has done such great things for my hair why wouldn’t I tell my friends about it? It was the easiest thing to add to my morning routine. There’s a few different formulas so there’s something for everyone.
*For transparency purposes I did not pay for this. Influenster sent this product to me in exchange for an honest review. The agreement was to review on L’Oréals website and an instagram post but not a blog post. I just love this so much I wanted to tell all of you guys about it.

Embrace yourself, your flaws, your quirks, the things that make you special and the things that make you the same.
I don’t or well for the longest time I didn’t. I’d forgotten how subdued I’d kept a lot of my self. While I was taking down my Christmas tree I’d noticed this ornament.
Yep out of literally hundreds of choices at Bronners– the worlds largest Christmas store- this was the only one to represent me. Yes I’m left handed, but surely there was something to better fit my personality. Only the thing is I didn’t have much of a personality. I hid every part of myself, anything that might draw any kind of attention. I was an uncredited extra in my own life, blending into the background.
Maybe this was all a part of my anxiety. To be fair most of what I do can be linked back to my anxiety some how either caused by it or I pushed myself to spite it. I am constantly working on reminding myself that if it makes me happy, and doesn’t effect anyone else then I need to do it. Weather it’s a sweater that says something silly, or just about anything mermaid I need to go all in.
Honestly, I think since I’ve started embraceing all of the parts of me that I’d pushed away, I’ve been happier. Especially since it’s becoming more and more natural. I’m still very much aware of what I do and how it reflects on me, but not to the same extent. I’ve also realized that practically no one is paying attention to what I’m doing.
If you take anything away from this post I hope it’s that you can be yourself completely and you should. You need to embrace your self and share the you you hide. Please remember that If it make you happy, and doesn’t hurt anyone then do it.

I am not a materialistic person. But we all have those things that we just can’t live with out. Here are My top 5.
Go ahead and laugh all you want but much like a toddler I can’t sleep with out my blankets. I think the worst part about this is that they’re not even blankets from when I was a child, I was in my 20’s when I got them. One is a knitted one I bought because I liked the colors and the other just has to be a fleece tied one. I have like 5 of those and yes they’re all on my bed. I sleep with 6 blankets. I only bring the knitted one and one of the fleece ones anytime I go over night somewhere.
I’m not entirely proud of this but I am kind of attatched to my iPad. It’s how I watch Netflix, read books, write blog posts and keep up with YouTube videos I like. I don’t like the idea of being attached to a piece of technology but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t need it.
I bring shampoo and conditioner whenever I am going away over night. I however did not bring it with me to my sisters about a week ago. I had to use hers. My hair is still mad at me. My skin is very sensitive, my scalp included. After I’d used it the whole day my hair was so full static. It was unbareable. I thought that my past complaints were a bit dramatic but it’s not.
I can’t say for sure that these work. I will say that the orange glow they give off is soothing and provides enough light for someone who… lets say is afraid of the dark to be able to sleep with the lights off. I did notice that once the light burnt out I was not sleeping as well as I do when it’s on. I was so tired that week.
Ok this is weird but if there’s any bit of clothing that I’m going to wear it’s going to be socks. They’re not going to match either. I mean obviously I’m not going to go around naked just in my socks but I’m going to have them on. Also I find it very odd to be inside someone else’s house with out socks on. But that’s probably just me.
Well those are my Five things I can’t live with out what are some of yours? Let me know in the comments. And as always thanks for reading. Please share this with someone who you think would enjoy this too.
