☀️ Summertime means sunscreen round these parts. You don’t have to use toxic sunscreens any more. Now you can have a better option like Young Living’s mineral sunscreen. Works like a charm and I don’t have to worry about using it on my daughter or myself. I don’t just worry about what goes IN her body (food/nutrition). I worry about what goes ON it because that also goes IN it. 💁🏼‍♀️When I tell you it’s easy to ditch the chemicals and switch to better options, I mean it. I don’t have time for complicated! I started with their essential oils and it became a total lifestyle change. The Young Living essential oil starter kit I got with 11 oils and a diffuser rocked my world but after that all the other products just made sense to me. I became more and more aware of what could be harming my health and that of my family. 🙋🏼Look, I know some of you may say- well we used (fill in the blank) when I was a kid and I’m not dead! Honestly, we don’t know the long term effects of all the chemicals we bombard ourselves with on a daily basis. They disrupt hormones, for example, so if you suffer from migraines or stomach issues, it could be from those toxic products, not stress or allergies! You’re body is under constant stress from chemicals and you may not even realize it. It’s ok. I didn’t either. 🙅🏼‍♀️It’s not hard or even expensive to switch out one product at a time and switch to healthier options. I promise. 🙋🏼I recommend you get a starter kit to start like I did. It can replace so many things. Toxic candles and air fresheners to start! And once you get your kit, you get tons of education from me to show you how to use them to promote wellness and replace tons of other things too. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. 😜And it’s even FUN to do because I’m all about FUN!! ➡️➡️➡️And I teach you how to fit it all into your current budget! ➡️I’ll post a link to our starter kits in my bio if you’re curious. ➡️Check them out and let me know if you are ready to ditch and switch. It’s my passion and calling to help people to take authority over their lives and that means becoming the gatekeeper of your home! Who is ready to start?

the best kind of sunday funday is the one where you don’t have to work the next day

“People only see me for the joyful and fun life I portray, but they don’t see the pain I have to endure. But what other choice do I have? I can either let the pain get me down or I can choose to enjoy my life and fight through it. For instance, I knew if I went white water rafting I’d be risking the possibility of experiencing extreme pain afterwards, but it was worth the risk to me. I was willing to chance the pain I may experience for the fun I would have.”⠀ ⠀ My mom has battled with arthritis since her early 20’s and we’ve had lots of adventures this week that have made it increasingly painful for her in some moments. ⠀ ⠀ Hearing her share these words tonight and watching her live this out only motivates me to want to live that same kind of life. It may not be physical pain, but how often do we let fears or failures in our lives keep us from living the life we truly want? ⠀ ⠀ The adventure is worth the risk. Every time. We can choose to live our best life, every single day. No matter the pain we’re experiencing or the fears that want to hold us back, we can either choose to be a victim of our circumstances or take control over our lives and make each day count. 💛

Palette scraps mixed with toddler scribbles. I think it works.

Drag continued. 💉

Long weekends are for... • ...swimming with my best girl, BBQing with the neighbors, spending all day in the pool and sleeping hard at night! #memorialdayweekend #poolday #bbq #chloegracegougler

More than a fluff piece 😂💗 Reading all about Marshmallow Fluff & how it came be a staple in America! Maybe it will lend some inspiration to how @xo.marshmallow can do the same! Either way, it’s nice to read something both for work and for fun and catch a little bit of sunshine ☀️ too! Thanks @kitty.chicky for letting me borrow it! 🙌🏻✨ #MDMreads #marshmallowfluff #bossbabebookclub
