Friday Favorite: Simply Earth’s Essential Oils

You’ve probably heard a lot about essential oils and have become curious –  I know I have! I mean, I know people who swear by them and all the benefits these provide; from better sleep to being more alert.

Since I wanted to personally find out what these oils were about, when a fellow blogger introduced me to Simply Earth; I took advantage of the opportunity to partner with them. Especially, because I liked what this company offers.

Simply Earth, gives back! And this is a big deal for me when trying new products. A total of 13% of their profits helps to stop human traffic.

So, what is Simply Earth? It’s an oil recipe box that works on a subscription system – monthly and quarterly. It includes 4 Essential Oils shipped for free to you. If you’re a complete beginner, like me – you may be able to receive a free diffuser when you start your subscription.

Essential Oils

My box included four essential oils, almond oil, two rollers, two inhalers with circle labels, glass beads and burlap sack, and six recipes.

The recipes, were a huge help. Again, I am somewhat of a newbie at this, so having a guide was a great feature that this subscription box offers. Also, having all the necessary items to make each recipe was very helpful.

Because my August box is a Back to School box, the recipes are about staying focused and awake. My personal favorite is the Backpack Refresher! It calls for Grapefruit, Almond Oil, Glass Beads, and a mini Burlap Sack. Once you follow the easy instructions, you simply toss it in your little’s backpack and that’s it. 😉

Plus, the fact that it’s tested for purity, free of pesticides and has zero additives puts me at ease. As a mom, I don’t want anything in our home that can be harmful to us.

I am very impressed with Simply Earth, they’ve made my initial essential oils experience a great one. Go check them out and see for yourself. They site is loaded with useful resources, like a free ebook with recipes, so that you get the most out of each oil box.

A Day in Atlanta – Georgia Aquarium Adventure

First, are we friends on Instagram? If we’re not! Get to it. You’re missing out on all the live shares of my adventures. Like this trip to the Georgia Aquarium. Yes! It all happens there first and then I come to The Blog to spill details on everything. You can find me under Thirtyminusone_blog. 😉

So, last month I spent over three weeks in Georgia. It’s where my family lives and was home for a few years and where my husband and I met. We still have friends there and love going back to get away from the city life – ok, I do live in the suburbs but it’s a complete scenery change.

While I didn’t have any big plans for our time there. The Georgia Aquarium was a must. Why? Because it’s simply amazing! And because we have been taking our oldest since she was little. Now that she’s six, I thought she would appreciate it all a little more. And because our two year old is more aware of her surroundings, loves ocean creatures and I thought she would also enjoy it.

My husband stayed behind because he had to work, and the day that he flew into Atlanta, is the day that we choose for our adventure. After picking him up from the airport, we headed to the Aquarium. Buying the tickets was a seamless process, we bought them online which came with a savings; these were then emailed to me and easily scanned for us to access the Aquarium.

A Day in Atlanta

I was pleasantly surprised with the Dolphin exhibit. This was a new one for us, since we had not visited in a little over a year. Now, the tropical exhibit is hands down my favorite – it has always been. It’s just so colorful! And being able to talk about it with my six year old made it a little more special. She gets me, and was as fascinated as I was.

We spent a few hours there and then walked through Centennial Park before heading to Hard Rock Café for a bite. A few years back while in London, we visited what was the first Hard Rock Café ever, and since started collecting their glasses. Each time we visit a new city we try to stop by, get a bite and take a souvenir glass with us.

In all honesty, we didn’t do a whole lot, but it was the perfect family fun day. Now, if you’re ever in the Atlanta area, you have a few activities that you can add to your itinerary. You’re Welcome! 😉

Balancing Household Duties as Newlyweds

When you got married, you probably never stopped to think how something so simple as dish duty would impact your relationship. However, maintaining the balance of your relationship day in and day out often depends on those little details of living.

It can take a lot of adjustment for newlyweds to learn to live together. Often, it takes time and forgiveness. Nowhere is this more apparent than in household chores. Here are some tips for how to balance household duties in a home where both of the newlyweds work and live together…

Start how you want to continue

Many people start the beginning of a relationship with all sorts of plans for being a domestic goddess, or a husband who pampers his wife. The urge to serve your spouse is something that you should always hold on to, but it’s important to also remember that how you start out is often how you’ll continue. Enlisting help for household duties will be harder down the line when your life becomes more busy and stressful. So make sure that from the get-go, you both realize that you need to work as a team to run the household. Take turns, and take time out to appreciate what the other person does to help life run more smoothly.
