LIFESTYLE: Gadget Goodness; The Micro Pedi

Just a few weeks back I got my hands on a new gadget for your feet. Why does this make me happy? Two reasons; I’m a sucker for gadgets and I strive for smooth and healthy feet all year round. I’m talkin’ bout fresh from the spa silky smooth feet and heels, the ones that have no place in a sock and at night get rubbed up on your mans leg just to silently prove there beauty. Ha! I can’t be alone on this one, am I? I’ve now used the Micro Pedi for 2 weeks one end and the difference is crazy. It’s really one of those […]

doTERRA Essential Oils +GIVEAWAY

I am by no means a connoisseur of essential oils, in fact, I would call myself the newest of newbies. I have always been intrigued by the thought of using essential oils both in my home, and into my family’s lives and daily routine but have always had too much on my plate to give it the attention I feel it needs, and deserves. A great friend of mine Jen, who also blogs {mama. papa. bubba}, is an avid daily user of essential oils.
