essential oil/magic potion recipes.

Hello lovelies! Hope life is going great! Today is actually beautiful hear in the midwest, the sun is shining, the snow is melting, life can't get much better! 

Today I decided to talk about a new craze that I have recently fallen in love with. It is the use of essential oils. I'm telling you guys, if you have a little extra cash, go out and splurge on an essential oil diffuser. It will change your life!

Essential oils have been shown to relieve stress, pain, give you energy, help you fall asleep, everything! It is actually amazing. That kind of voo-doo naturalistic stuff I'm in love with. 

With that said, however, I wanted to go ahead and post about a few essential oil "recipes" that will help with anything you need. Hope they work for you like they have been working for me! 

To focus: Mix citrus oil with peppermint oil.
For clear breathing/allergy help: peppermint oil, lemon oil, lavender oil.
For getting sleep: Lavender oil and chamomile oil.
Stress relief: Use some eucalyptus and peppermint.
Anxiety problems: Citrus oil.
Relaxation: Lavender oil. 

Don't have a diffuser? No worries! Just rub the oil either on your temples or wrist and you will still feel the benefits of these magic potions. ;)

Those are just a few of my favorite recipes, if you have any please share! I'd love to try something new!

valentines attire.

HERE WE ARE, yet again with another valentines day post. Why? Because I love any excuse to talk about love and/or the color pink.

Also, I figured that since I have already gotten your valentines gifting problems out of the way, I might as well go ahead and help you guys out with the date night outfit, right?

WELL. It's valentines day. So that gives you every excuse to break out the reds, the pinks, and the flowers. Here are a couple cute idea's I have come across. 

I LOVE lace for a valentines day outfit. And what is more perfect than a red lace dress? Nothing. There are so many cute options at Simons online, FYI!

Don't have a red lace dress? Well...I know you have a black one. So throw on a cute red or pink cardigan or blazer to "valentines" it up.

AND HOW CUTE IS THIS. The stockings. The floral. The cardi. I am in love. 

And last but not least (if I had to choose an outfit this would be the winner) a cute and simple outfit. Black shirt and stockings with a red/maroon skirt. Perf.

And please, do NOT neglect your nails, ladies. This is the time it is acceptable for an adult woman to rock nail art. So go out and rock it.

valentine's gifts for your man.

(Find this cute valentines card and more here

It's almost here, the day of the year we all look forward to (yea, right) and we are all scurrying around to get our man a cute gift that will actually make him smile. 

So many years I have gotten my bf horrible gifts. I know, I know, I've been with him for so long it should be easy to get him something he'll enjoy, but unfortunately that is not the case. He is the worst person to buy for. All he wants is a snow mobile or a jet ski. All of which are out of my price range. 

I am guessing that a lot of you guys are in the same boat as me, so I have compiled a list of cute gifts that you can get for your man that are actually affordable (not to mention all from Etsy, so you are supporting the small businesses out there too!)

Here goes... 

1.  A clever mug to remind him you're a BOSS. 

2. For the classy guy in your life, he will always need a wallet, why not make it embroidered? 

3. What about an ever-present reminder of your love for him? 

4. I mean, who doesn't need this? 

5. And then you could always just get him exactly what he asked for, nothing.

What are you getting your man this year for Valentines day?
