|| Shower Melts ||
Move over bath bombs (who has time for a bath anyhow?), let me introduce you to shower melts. Place drops of essential oils on the melt and place in the base of the shower. The hot water creates steam full of therapeutic goodness. So simple to make and you can vary your oils depending on your needs. Try Easy Air for sinus congestion, Peppermint to wake you the heck up in the morning (that’s me!!!!) or Lavender Peace to get the kids 💤 ready for sleep.
1 cup of bicarb soda
1/3 cup water
Combine and spoon into silicon moulds. Bake at 180’ for 15-20 minutes.
This recipe is foolproof. Try it and let me know how you like it.
No mud - no lotus.✨
Certainly there are things that come easy, and, oh, how wonderful that is, but the vast majority of achievements and victories involve first sitting in the mud.
And I mean really sitting there, settling in, getting just covered in it. At face value, the lotus flower grows up from the mud, emerging from the murk to bloom. In life’s terms, the work and toil and suffering that we put in are what yield the return, the reward.
This sentiment has been stuck in my mind lately. There is so much truth in it. We get so bogged down by the hard, by the suffering that we are going through in our day to day life, that it is sometimes hard to see the potential beauty that we are reaching for. Or the inverse, we see the end result that we want, but we struggle to find the motivation or to take responsibility for the work that we need to do to reach that goal. I have been making it a conscious practice to let this sentiment play as a mantra in my mind:
When I am struggling to take the necessary steps to complete a task—no mud, no lotus.
O que é UX?
UX, ou User Experience, é um termo cada vez mais comum no mundo do marketing digital. É a área que busca otimizar a experiência do usuário com o site, o aplicativo, a mídia social. ✔️ A preocupação de UX, portanto, é garantir que essa experiência seja positiva. Para isso, o profissional deve pensar em todos os detalhes, desde as cores até a navegação entre páginas. Alguns de seus objetivos são reter o usuário por mais tempo e fazer com que ele encontre facilmente o que precisa. 🔎
Isso acaba com alguns mitos, como a ideia de que basta ter um excelente conteúdo. Conteúdo é, de fato, muito importante. Mas se o seu site não oferecer uma boa experiência ao usuário, os visitantes vão embora e a estratégia de marketing não alcança sucesso. ✌️ E aí, como anda a preocupação da sua empresa com UX? 😊
I made myself a coffee cart last spring. Took an old dresser, removed the drawers. Then I added on a top and shelf. I painted it and added stain to deepen the color. And yes, I’m a bit obsessed with Torani and Jordan Skinny syrups. A few dollar store mesh baskets hold some coffee pods and I got a cheap decor frame from Big Lots.
DIY - Lavender “sniff-goods” 100% made from my London terrace Lavender!
1. HARVEST: Before its fully bloom, grab the lavender into a bunch and cut the at the base of the lavender above the leaves
2. DRY: If you got hanging space at home - Tie and hang the bunches with some string upside down for 4-6 days in a dark room (keep checking until it falls right off)
3. DRY: If you lack space at home - Pinch all the heads together and cut off the stems, place them in a box padded with silk paper - give them a shake every now and then
4. TUCK in SACHETS: I got mine from Amazon - “Allsorts® 12 Natural Linen Drawstring Wholesale Gift Bags”, they measure10 x 8 cm. When they fall right off the stems, you can start you sachets!
5. TUCK in CASHMERE: If you have any old cashmere sweaters/scarves, cut circle out of them with a diameter of 8/9cm, place you lavender in the center and tie it up with a ribbon of you choice!
6. USE: They smell so flipping good you can place them everywhere, in your pillowcase (for relaxation), drawers (for you delicates), dryer with laundry (good for 10 loads!), in your car, luggage and my favorite the bathtub!
7. MAKE NO EXCUSES: To have a pot of lavender at home even if it’s a little corner of a little terrace, they require minimal care and by making these sachets you’ve already done 90% (you’ve “Pruned” them!) of the work for them to grow back healthy for next year! *
Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing..
