Tell me something about YOU before I get carried away...many of you already know I’m a former cancer researcher who posts a ton about my kiddos and not infrequently about our clean, nontoxic lifestyle. But every now and again I like to toss up a post that tells you some things about me you might not know. Since winter is definitely here (did you see what I did there #GOT ), this post’s theme will be entirely cold-weather related. Ready? I have a love-hate relationship with winter weather. While I live for tea lattes to warm my soul, I cannot stand actually being cold. This winter, I’m really focusing on exercising more and hopefully dropping a few lbs! My fave thing to do on a chilly morning (any morning, really) is snuggling under a blanket with my boys and I love nothing more than ordering takeout and watching Netflix with Matt in the evening. Enough about me! I want to hear about YOU!⠀
Apparently today is National Clean Off Your Desk Day which for me, neat freak that I am, I finished that last night before even knowing the whole country would be celebrating with me! I find that I am 10x more productive and focused with a clear clean desk. So what’s your desktop like? Pristine and clean or organized chaos? #nationalcleanoffyourdeskday #deskporn #homeofficelife #workfromhomemama #deskshot #deskdecoration #cleandesktop #whitedesk #containerstoreaddict
Do you ever wonder how a cancer researcher 👩🔬 turned into a network marker 🤔? If someone would have told me a year ago that this was my path, I would never have believed them 🤥. However, I will be forever grateful that someone invited me to learn more at one of those "parties" (thank you, Liz), because unbeknownst to me, it changed my life 😍. Tonight, I'll be sharing a little bit about.... 🔥 My story, and why even as a cancer researcher, I still was not as knowledge about living clean and green as I thought I was 😤. 🔥 What makes our products different from every other "clean" and "safer" brand out there. 🔥 How being a "host" could mean detoxing and stocking your entire home for FREE 🔥 What is business side of things looks like (HINT: 💵🛍 ✈️🏖🚀🤳🏻👭💃🏻) If you're at all a little bit curious, send me a message or leave me a 🙋♀️ below and I'll hook you up with an invite. It's going to be short, simple, and fun!
Is it just me, or is anyone else compelled to sing “The cold never bothered me anyway!” a la Elsa, every time they walk outdoors? I’m still daydreaming about being back poolside in Costa Rica. It’ll probably still be pretty cold and raining for a few more months, but I’m counting a steady flow of Costa Rican memories to help with that!
I’m 34 years old. I’m a mom. I have two boys, ages 5 and 2. I can also name for you 5 moms, the same age as me, with kids the same age as mine, who have or are currently fighting breast cancer. Thinking back to my childhood, I don’t remember many moms who were “sick.” I asked my mom about it and she can only recall one parent who was battling cancer throughout my entire childhood. I can’t tell you exactly what causes breast cancer and I can’t tell you how to completely avoid it. But what I CAN tell you is that your antiperspirants and deodorants (and likely many more products in your home) are full of ingredients that have been linked to breast cancer (and Alzheimer’s). Yes, the research surrounding this topic is ongoing, but I’d prefer to use a deodorant that is completely toxic-free. I’ll be honest, using a toxic-free deodorant was one of my last switches. I knew about the risks of aluminum and parabens, and while I hated that I was putting that in (yes, in) my body, I couldn’t find a safe alternative that worked. Keeping myself healthy, keeping my body safe from potential harm is one of my biggest responsibilities as a mom. So finding a safe deodorant, a product that I use everyday, multiple times a day, that actually WORKED was the equivalent of finding the jackpot. The switch is simple. It’s effective and it’s 10000% worth it. Oh and it’s on sale. #deodorant #nontoxic #pits #stink #aluminumfree #fragrancefree #parabenfree #toxinfree #organicdeodorant #nongmo #vegandeodorant #crueltyfreedeodorant
When the sun comes up on January first, it will start my second year in the network marketing profession. Reflecting on all the incredible lessons I’ve learned, experiences I’ve had, and events I’ve attended in 2018, I’m thinking about it a little differently lately. New beginnings are so exciting. As 2019 draws near, we’ll all find ourselves a little bit older, perhaps a little bit challenged and hopefully a little be wiser. If you got to choose (and the amazing thing is, YOU DO GET to chose) what would you start this year, if you knew you couldn’t fail?
My mantra for the next year. 💪🏻
Merry Christmas 🎄 from our family to yours! The best gift of all is a happy family wrapped up in each other 💕
24 hours ago: VIP experience 🌟filling my mind and soul with greatness and planning for what is going to be the most transformative year yet Present time: My 5-year old elbowed me in the nose so hard it bled. Graciously got me a tissue, but not before dipping it in the toilet 🚽. #mompreneurlifestylerocks #worklifebalanced #haveitallatthesametime #boymomsrule
They are all SO good!
Starting a new journey with multivitamins today. My energy and mood have been so blah lately, so I’m really hoping these will help. If you know me, you know that I absolutely despise swallowing pills 💊. However, I stumbled upon these babies and they checked all my crazy high standard boxes. Love that I can open the capsules and pour them into my morning tea ☕️ if necessary. Any of my friends here take love taking multivitamins and/or hate swallowing pills 🤣 Tips welcome! #newjourneyahead #organic #nonGMO #clean
Happy birthday to this little guy who made me a mommy 5 years ago! Love to to the 🌙 and back times infinity, love bug!
