February Favs!!!

So here we are ending out the second month of the year... I mean I know February is a short month to begin with but I think it really flew by... I thought I'd share a few things I'm loving this month...

First up... These freaking amazing shoes from nordstrom you an get them here   and p.s. they are still on sale even more of a sale then when I got them! These are so freakin cute and as you can see from the pictures below on kingdom of sequins (if you don't follow her on ig you should) You can pair these with both shorts or jeans!!!

Next is Frankincense essential oil from young living. Remember the depression post? Well lets just say I'm doing a little experiment with this oil and raising my frequencies while I'm at it!!!!

Next up, these little twinkle razors. Listen I know I am a little late to the game on this one but these little things are incredible and I am sad I didn't try them sooner...

Next up obviously Rae Dunn had to make the list so here I am with my sweet heart mug because hey, it's Feb!!

Last thing (because I wanted to add something keto) these low carb tortillas. I have been loving these lately guys! I get them a little crispy and make a turkey melt or a cheese quesadilla or a quesadilla burger even! It defiantly hits the spot!

Ok loves, thats all I have for you for this month!! Can't believe that March starts tomorrow!!!!

Depression... The Taboo... The stigma... The community...

I think we can all agree that there's a sort of taboo surrounding depression.. I mean not so much in recent years because people have been so much more vocal and I think that's incredible...

I mean it sucks that there is this stigma around it like "oh, suck it up" "it's only for the weak of mind" NO! It's real! The sad part is, some people don't even realize whats happening until it's to late and they are deep in the throws of it...

It's normal to want to stay in bed longer and snuggle, it's not however normal to not be able to get out of bed. It's not normal to have to physically force yourself to get up and get your kids to school on time...
Maybe you feel ashamed, maybe you have a really good marriage and really good kids and you feel like you have no right to be depressed... No friends, that's not how it works. Depression does not discriminate.  Maybe you have this guilt that you have a really good life and fear that people will think what could you possible have to complain about.

Guys this is a really hard subject for me because if you aren't in my inner circle I probably have never told you that I struggle with depression.. You know what though it's good to be open, if I would have kept this to myself I probably would have never realized that I'm not alone.

To be honest I don't know when it started, I can't pinpoint a time... I know I didn't realize what it was up until about two years ago. I know I felt ashamed to say it... Everybody has their own problems or issues, everybody has their own struggles and pain. Just because we can't see is doesn't mean its not there or relevant.

Check on your friends that seem like that have it all together because I can almost promise you that they don't...

It also seems like when you are trying to get things together or in order that's when it can rear its ugly head... Like say, trying to restart your blog...

The point is maybe you are struggling in silence and you don't have to friend. There is a whole community out there with you, there are more of us then you know.

I'm here, and if you ever want to talk feel free to message me. In the mean time I'll be over here sniffing my valor and bergamot and reading because believe it or not for me that helps...

Guys here's something I've been wanting to share for a while, because when you find something you love you can't help but share it right? 

So, one of the MANY products that I love from young living is sulferzymes! It's like little magic pills... I'm over here replacing all the things, sorry not sorry sugar bear hair vites!!! 

Why do I think they are magical? I don't know, maybe it's the way my hair and skin have responded to them!!! What makes them so magical?? I'd say mainly MSM!!! 

Here’s a little info, but I encourage you to GOOGLE MSM BENEFITS. I think you’ll want to add this to your diet, too...
What is Sulfurzyme?
"Sulfurzyme is a unique combination of MSM, the protein-building compound found in breast milk, fresh fruits and vegetables, and Ningxia wolfberry. Together, they create a new concept in balancing the immune system and supporting almost every major function of the body. MSM has the ability to equalize water inside the cells, which is a considerable benefit for those needing joint support." 

- From the Essential Oil Desk Reference, Life Science Publishing
Why should I take Sulfurzyme?
If you have skin, hair, nails, or joints (and we hope you do), you are likely not getting enough of this compound. Weak and brittle nails, hair that doesn't grow or isn't healthy, joints that are painful, and skin issues can all be giant billboard signs telling you that you need more nutrition in this area. Skin that is ultra sensitive to the topical use of oils can be another telltale sign. This one supplement can do so much to help you benefit from everything else you are doing with your oils to increase your health.
"What makes this product different from the other products is the exceptional purity of MSM we use. This pharmaceutical grade MSM in Sulfurzyme is light years away from the low-grade material imported from Asia. Unfortunately, a great deal of the MSM sold in the U.S. originates from Asia. I believe that the key ingredient that makes Sulfurzyme so effective is the Chinese Wolfberry. With over 18 amino acids and 21 minerals, the wolfberry is one of the most nutrient-dense foods known. Few people realize that in order for us and our pets to properly metabolize the sulfur in MSM, the body requires minerals like molybdenum. When these are missing, MSM does not work as well. This is why wolfberry is so important." - D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living
