When my fiancé came home from work early today with some odd aches and pains in his elbow (that's life after 30 🙊), I said "oh, I probably have some essential oils that can help" 💧🌿🌸
This was a first for me, suggesting some oils and a massage over popping a few tylenol 💊, but through all this health and wellness research I'm doing, it's becoming more and more clear how toxic and scary these "quick fixes" & over-the-counter pain meds can be. Even for little things like sore muscles and headaches
Don't get me wrong, I'm a stay-at-home-mom with 2 kids 👧🏼👶🏼 under 4, plus I own a small business 💻🎨 and blog in my "spare time," so I still have my fair share of killer headaches and backaches... But now I'm fighting them (or better yet, warding them off before they even start), with lots of water 💦, a (slightly) better diet 🍌, and a new-found love of essential oils 🌿
So today... jojoba + a few drops of lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus & Rosemary #essentialoils (and an awesome 💪🏻 massage by yours truly) helped ease some of Pete's muscle pain
Approaching things from a more #holistic point of view has certainly been a change, but it's also been so interesting and eye-opening -- even just as I'm beginning this journey into really healing my whole self, not just treating symptoms

Not many people know my story. It's crazy to go from being so broke that you have no money for even food to flights every week, first class like it's nothing. Driving Benz's, Rovers and Rolls Royces. Having more money than I could've expected. But one thing is clear. This is just the beginning. I got so much more to accomplish #blessed#godisgreat#justgettingstarted
The first lesson in art history is the Venus of Willendorf. A fertility figure. Across mountains, deserts, oceans and plains EVERY culture had their own idea these figures. They represent more than just fertility. They are tokens and symbols of hope and feminitiy. Such an inspiration.
I have been asked many times about my appearance in the @beyonce video “Haunted”, as a ghost. Well, my dress was from the Paris couturier runway shows and the necklace was very heavy and spiky. The boots were 12” high; two men had to prop me up on them. I could only move my arms. The train was 50’ long and a man had to walk around with me to hold it. A lot goes into these music videos. Wardrobe was by uber stylist @bcompleted and the director was her husband @jonasakerlund Thanks @rick_ferrari for this wonderful opportunity. At that time, around 65, I didn’t realize I was #justgettingstarted 💪💃
