“Years ago, when I was even more frazzled than I am now, a friend of mine told me her little trick for creating instant peace in the home. Just before her husband walked in the door from a long day at work, she’d light a candle or two and for whatever reason, it just calmed everything down. I don’t know about you, but I need peace in our home. I strive for it and it’s not always easy to find. So, I’ve tried this little trick with much success, and I’ve discovered my favorite brand of candle: http://www.virginiacandle.com/ Fragrant without being overpowering and the wick makes the sound of a crackling fire. So far the vanilla bean is the best one but pumpkin was pretty nice over Thanksgiving. ”
“When you are craving something crunchy and salty but are still trying to be oh so good and healthy, grab these super yummy baked cheese fries. I actually call them crack because they are so good yet so addicting. BUT you can feel less guilt because they are gluten and preservative free, and all natural!! Our local Costco carries them in a huge bag for around $5! It’s practically a health food 🙂 ”
“Lilith Moon’s youtube channel . Usually after I have a baby I chop all my hair off for ease of styling and to keep them from little grabby hands. Then I’m sad and I miss my hair and spend the next couple of years regretting it and growing it out again. This time I was determined to keep my long locks, so I started looking for tutorials for fast, easy up-dos. My favorites are from the lovely lady from Lilith Moon’s youtube channel. She has tons of tutorials on how to quickly style and care for medium to long hair (either your own or extensions). She can also be found at https://www.facebook.com/lilithmoon. ”
“I think one of the best gifts to give is a blank journal. There are so many beautiful journals out there. I have given this journal to special friends and I am getting my Maddy one this Christmas. I can’t help but include the cute, cute colored pencils.”
