I am still loving my Jamberry business!!! www.kcrewfive.jamberrynails.net if you want to check out my site. I have a contest going on in my FB page too. www.facebook.com/kcrewfive. Essential oils.... I have just discovered you! I had heard so much about them but was a little scared to try them. I have a 5 yr old and a dog. I did a ton of research and decided that DoTERRA and Young Living oils were the only ones I will use. DoTERRA is 10% pure and certified organic and the Young Living is 100% pure and has been in business 20 years and were the ones to start this whole OE craze. :) I had been sick for almost 4 months straight. It was one thing after another. A cold, bronchitis, strep throat... then I would get it all over again. I was getting sick with viruses while on antibiotics for something else. I was tired of it and my chest hurt from coughing and my kids were sick all the time. I thought that there has to be a better way than all these meds we were taking and only getting better for a short time before we were sick again. (we would feel well for maybe 2 days at a time.) A friend told me about EO's and I decided to try Thieves after researching the best ones. I have a diffuser and I diffuse it 3 times a day in the house and I do it in the bedrooms while the kids are in school. I also use Purification. I have been using Raven and Breath Again for my coughing and breathing. I think it has been 2-3 weeks now and no more sickness!!!!!! Seriously, we are rejoicing!! I feel better and I can breath again and now, maybe I can get ot exercising and doing my C25K again. (I have to start all over but maybe I can finish this time without getting sick). My husband had a bad looking, infected cut on his arm the other day. (Saturday is when I saw it). He didn't know how he got it. It looked bad. I wish I had taken pictures because the difference after EO's is AMAZING! I looked up what the best stuff for cuts would be and saw that Lavender and Purification (Young Living) would be good for it. I put a drop of each onto a cotton ball and dabbed lightly, my husbands cut. I only used the purification a couple times and mainly used the Lavender. I did this a bout 3 times on Saturday. My husband told me on Sunday it felt better. I forgot to look at it. Monday I looked at his arm and there was NO CUT and it was light pink and closed up completely. My husband told me that a stick started to pop through his arm on Monday morning and he pulled it out and his armed was completely healed by Monday night! He said the cut had been there a few days and it wasn't until I started dabbing the EO's on his arm that the stick just came to the surface and after it was removed his arm healed so fast! he was amazed too. (He is a builder and things like this happen to him a lot, getting pieces of wood in his arm and not knowing when it happened) I signed up with Young Living just for the wholesale discount. Here is my member # if you are ever interested #2047862. (www.youngliving.com) I do not sell it but wanted the discount. :) I recently heard about (completely by accident too) people having testimonies of their eyes healing with EO's!!! I read about an 87 yr old man who was completely bind in one eye and going blind in the other and was able to see again a few months later! I have never had an eye appointment (since I was 3 or 4) where the doc said my eyes were better. NEVER> They have always either stayed the same or gotten worse. I am going to try this stuff from DoTERRA called Immortelle and just dab a bit under my eyes (ON THE SKIN) just above the cheekbone. I have a doc appointment in a few months and we will see what he says. I read many, many, blog posts and testimonials of the same , that peoples eyes got better and they no longer needed glasses! Wouldn't that be great! My husband wants to try it too. His eyes are not that bad but we will see if they get better. (I have seen him squinting lately.) I told my friend that sells DoTERRA that is this works, I am signing up under her just for the discount. :) Here is what is in the Immortelle. This is a therapeutic grade Oil just like all DoTERRA and Young Living oils. Frankincense: Very anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-infectious and incredibly healing on deep levels. Frankincense soothes the skin and nerves, protects against microbes, has been shown to be anti-cancerous and anti-tumor, and can be used on warts, moles, age spots and more. 2.Sandalwood: Protective against UV radiation, is skin regenerative, anti-infectious, anti-tumor and a natural tonic and astringent. 3.Lavender: Incredibly soothing to irritated skin and burns (including sunburns), reduces inflammation and allergic reactions, and is anti-everything (anti-fungal, anti-tumor, antimicrobial, and more), as well as soothing dry skin. 4.Myrrh: Myrrh is shown to be anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antitumor, and a natural and safe astringent and tonic. It's great for chapped skin and skin infections. 5.Helichrysum: This incredible oil within Immortelle essential oil is fantastic for eczema and psoriasis, as well as tissue regeneration, pain relief and many kinds of healing. It's even known to be protective against the sun. 6.Rose: Highly revered, and expensive, rose oil helps stop the breakdown of collagen (which is what leads to loss of elasticity and wrinkles). It prevents scarring, promotes healing, increases circulation, and more. It's one of the best oils for the skin. So BONUS!!! You can get great skin at the same time! I can't wait to get mine next week in the mail and start trying it. I will report back to you all what my results are. Note: I am not a DoTERRA rep and even though I did sign up with Young Living, I do not actively sell it. I am still in the learning process about EO's and I know I have a ton to learn. But, Man, Do I love this stuff already!! I just make sure I use only the good stuff (You get what you pay for) and that I use very little, especially on my kids. One drop and some coconut oil as a carrier oil go a long way!!

A friend had posted to her Instagram about a Bundt cake that she made. it was from the website www.mixandmatchmamma.com this site has a great section called 100 days of Bundt cakes. My friend said she wanted to make all 100 of them I decided that it would be fun to do too. they are easy and simple to make gluten free too!! Day # 1 is a Chocolate chip Bundt cake. I substituted a yellow Betty Crocker Gluten Free cake mix for the regular cake mix. Turned out so good. I will post a picture soon. I also have a discovery I made recently!!! Jamberry Nail wraps!!!!! Really, the best invention ever!!! I was invited to a Jambery facebook party. I ordered some samples and tried them and I fell in love! I am the worst ever at applying nail polish. I am not even exaggerating a bit. I have no time to wait for it to dry and when I apply it looks like a war happened on my nails. I try and try to be careful and apply evenly but to no avail. plus, it looks bad after only a couple days, the tips chip. This Jamberry sample stayed on my pinkie nail with no chipping or peeling for 3 weeks! I even gave my daughter a sample and hers stayed on 4 weeks! ON a 13 year old even! I decided to have a party self. A facebook party. It went well. I got lots of free wraps and I decided soon after that to sell them. I just want more and more and more free wraps!!! I can't get enough. I am wearing the Icy Rose polka on my toes and fingers now. Been almost a week and after a crazy day of kickball in the dirt with open toed shoes yesterday, my toes and fingers still look fabulous! If anyone is interested in a facebook party, let me know! I do most all the work (You jus invite all your girls to the party!) and you get free wraps!! Well, off to a family Memorial day gathering. Made the Chocolate chip Bundt cake for it along with peanut butter, chocolate chip bars. Have a wonderful Memorial day today and remember why we are FREE in this wonderful country of ours!!!!! Honor those who served today!!

I will start by saying that I have always loved tea. my mother got my sister and me into drinking it when we were younger. Our tea selection consisted of only the Rose tea that you buy at the grocery store and it came with a free little ceramic animal in the box. :) We always had sugar and milk in our tea. When I got older I stopped putting the milk in my tea and only added sugar or honey to it. I preferred the taste of it this way. My tea pallet has become a little more sophisticated since I was 10. I love exotic teas as well as simple ones like a white peach. The brand of tea is HUGE when choosing a good tea. You can go to the grocery store and get a cheap tea and what you will taste is cheap tea. It is what it is. I do love Tazo. One of my faves!! Of course, I do love Starbucks. I discovered recently a company called Teavana. I have yet to go to the store (We have one about an hour away) or order online but the raves are crazy good!. I found the website today and discovered a tea maker on the site. Temperature and steeping time for different varieties is crucial to a good cup of tea. Green tea should be steeped and the water heated differently than a black tea, for instance. Well, this tea maker does all that!! With the push of a button you can tell the machine what kind of tea you have and it heats the water perfectly and steeps it just right. I am wanting this so bad!!! Here isThe LINK to the tea maker by Breville made just for Teavana. It is not cheap for sure but so worth it if you have the birthday money to spend on anything you want. :) I do drink tea that I have made in my Keurig but it is not the same as when you heat it right and steep it perfectly. Tea is an art. Truly. It is beautiful to look at and it is such a warm satisfying hug to drink if made the right way. Some day I will have this Tea maker. It will sit next to my Keurig on the counter. I like my coffee in the morning but my tea all day and night long. :)
