    The Best Fall Scents For Your Home

    Alright, I’m going to burst your bubble right off the bat and tell you this post is not going to contain a single candle. Nope, not a one! I never really was much of a candle person then I tried my hand at making some once I started getting into essential oils. They’re actually pretty easy & fun to make. It was then that I was first told about the dangers of burning candles, and no I’m not talking about fire. It turns out there’s harmful chemicals in candles that can lead to health problems ranging from headaches and dizziness to respiratory infections and even cancer. Candles made with paraffin…

    My Fall 2019 Wild Fable Picks

    If you’ve been around for awhile you know that I LOVE Target’s Wild Fable line! It is super inclusive so you can find almost all of the pieces in extended sizing. That is HUGE for me! Just because I am heavier does not mean I don’t want to look just as cute as my straight sized friends! I recently went in store to do a try-on, if you haven’t watched that yet it is saved in the story highlights on my Instagram. This post contains links to some of those pieces as well as ones that weren’t in my store when I went! I have included straight + plus size…

    Pet Profiles : The Cornish Kids

    Hey friends! I did some polls on my Instagram before the end of the year asking what y’all wanted to see on the blog & more than once the response was, “more of my dogs!” I am definitely on board with this! So today I am going to share profiles on each of our fur kids! First up is my old man Solo! Solo is 9 years old, he’ll be 10 in May. The shelter I rescued him from said he was a Border Collie mix but I really think that’s just because he’s black and white! We have no idea what he’s mixed with but he’s just the handsomest…
