    My Skin Care Routine

    Hey friends! Long time, no blog post! I recently shared my skin care routine in my stories over on Instagram and I wanted to list everything out here with links for you to shop, if you’re interested in doing so! So let’s get started! First up is my face wash. Currently I am using Young Living’s ART Gentle Cleanser. I have never in my life used such a gentle cleanser! My face feels refreshed & clean without feeling super dry. I highly recommend this product! If I am wearing make-up, which isn’t a regular thing for me, I also use a YL product to remove it! If you follow me…

Let me take you back to December with me so we can get back to when this alllllll started! Alright, so we’re back in December (brrr) & one of my cousins started a new job.

What was the job?…

    My Jobs & How I Do Them

    I’m back! Life has been a little bit crazy the last couple of weeks and I have missed being able to sit down to write blog posts for y’all! If you follow me on Instagram you know we found/rescued two little baby kittens from the ice/snow a little over a week ago. They have been keeping me pretty busy on top of having dogs boarding back to back the last three weeks! SO I thought I would talk about WORK today, just a little bit about what all I do, how I do it, & some tips for anyone else out there hustlin’! A little background into what all I…

    Our Love Story

    Happy New Year friends! If you follow me on Instagram you know I did a poll yesterday asking about a variety of possible content topics for the blog in 2019. One question I asked about was if you were interested in relational topics, the answer was a 100% YES! So I figure before I can dish out what relational knowledge I have, I should start with sharing Scot & I’s love story! Let’s rewind to the end of summer 2010. I was working for a pet resort, (which shall remain nameless) & was in the process of transferring locations to move into the on site apartment at the location Scot…

    Week(s) In Review 6

    Guys. Life, has been a little crazy this month! I didn’t mean for my weekly reviews to lapse for so long but here we are! At the beginning of the month we found out one of our dogs was pretty sick. Getting hit with that information + unexpected vet bills is never fun. On top of that I finally caught the cold Scot had been battling. The good news is, it moved through me pretty fast compared to how sick I used to get before I started using oils. I plan on doing a Wellness Wednesday post featuring all the concoctions I put together to get me through it! So…

    My Why

    One of the first things you’re going to hear & see over & over again when you’re starting a blog is, “What is your WHY” or “Define your WHY”. Basically, WHY are you blogging, WHY are you posting to Instagram, WHY WHY WHY?! Now for some people the answer may come to them right away, for me, I knew there were a lot of reasons but I had a hard time putting them into words.   The main reason I wanted to start blogging was because I didn’t feel like there were any bloggers like me out there. I don’t like spending all of my money on clothes, & I…

    Week In Review 5

    Hey everyone! It seems like so much has happened since I last typed up a WIR! Sometimes life gets busy & I just have to do these two-week catch ups! That was definitely the case these last couple of weeks! Last Sunday was my second Beautiful You Shoot. Beautiful You is something I started because it is my firm belief that every girl deserves to have pictures of herself that she loves. So I do affordable photo shoots with women-using my cell phone because it honestly takes amazing pics. So this time around we met at a park in Parkville, MO right along the MO river! It was such a…

    Week In Review 4

    So last Saturday Scot & I headed down to the West Bottoms (in Kansas City) for their monthly First Friday’s event. I had been once before but Scot had never been. It was kind of a dreary day but we had such a great time. It’s basically a giant antique/thrift/local artisan craft event set up in a bunch of old empty warehouses. We will definitely be going back! Here are a couple of pictures of some of the set-ups! I definitely want to go back for the Gram. There are SO MANY photo op spots! On Monday I got to see the world’s most perfect + beautiful niece, my sweet…
