If you’ve been reading along for any amount of time, you’ve probably already figured out that baking is my jam. I love to bake! I love to make new exciting creations. I love that every time I make something new my girls proclaim it to be the best thing I’ve ever made. And I love how baked goodies bring people together, especially around the holidays. I am so excited to share a new recipe with y’all today. One that features some of my favorite flavors together.

Simply Earth, Simply Amazing

This post has been sponsored by Simply Earth, all opinions are my own.

For about a year now I’ve dabbled with essential oils. First, I borrowed a few from a friend. Then, I purchased a few of my own. I never paid much attention to quality and how natural they were. After all, all oils are the same right?…. WRONG! The only thing I knew was that something about them intrigued me, and I wanted to add them to our life. I never took things any further than that.

Sound familiar?

There are two things in life that are very important to me. Being a good, present, engaged mom and maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. I used to feel like they would constantly fight against each other, each one vying for my attention. So often this left me feeling discouraged. But over the years I learned that with a little creative thinking and openness the two worlds can collide. And when they do, it’s pretty amazing.

A busy moms guide to an active life style. Tips and tricks I've used for years to succeed!

Instead of figuring out how to balance each of my two worlds individually, I started looking for more ways to bring them together. Today I want to share with you some tried and true ways that have brought me success over the past several years.

Until recently, if you asked me what Groupon was I would have told you it’s a great place to get electronic coupons and that would have been the extent of my knowledge. I had placed Groupon in a very small box and was totally clueless about just how much they had to offer.

And then things changed…

Uncommon Gifts For The Holiday Season

This shop has been compensated by UncommonGoods. All opinions are mine alone.

The holidays are just around the corner and the odds are if you haven’t started thinking about Christmas shopping already, you probably will soon. After all, there are only 57 days until Christmas.

Confession: I LOVE Christmas, but Christmas shopping stresses me out. I so desperately want to find a gift that is thoughtful, unique, and uncommon. Something that reflects what the recipient loves and lets them know I didn’t just grab the first thing I saw at the store and call it good enough. Presents can be so generic and boring, but they don’t have to be.

A guide to unique gifts. Give something unexpected this holiday season.
