New Years Word

I’ve heard a lot of people talk about picking a word for the year and I’ve been thinking lot about that. I’ve never been big new years resolutions girl because we’ll let’s face it I never keep them. However, I decided to give this word thing a try. I thought for a long time more of a goal that I wanted to do this year and the word QUALITY kept coming to mind. I want to be more aware of how I spend my time and make sure that it is quality time! No just surfing through FB, Instagram or other social media. When I’m on the internet I need with to get work done! No playing with the kids and being distracted by my phone, or work. Phone stays in the kitchen when playing with the kids. No sitting around watching Netflix marathons. 2 episodes then off. I’m sure you get the point. I want to challenge y’all to think about a word that may inspire or challage you this year. And if you want to share I’d love to hear it.

Christmas In Our House

20161128_1237560

Christmas is my favorite time of year!  Yes, I know LOTS of people say that but for me, it brings back such amazing memories.  Not just the ones we’ve made since we became a family, but memories from when I was a child and celebrated Christmas with my mom and sister.  My mother came to the United Sates from Germany when she was 18.  The Christmas traditions she passed on the me are priceless. The way we spend Christmas Eve is one of those traditions.   I love going to church on Christmas Eve. We then coming home and having a family dinner before reading the Christmas story and opening a present.  For me it is the most magical time of the season.  It is the night that we come together as a family to remember and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.  The birth of Christ. Since my husband was raised with a traditional where Santa delivers presents and you open then on Christmas day, we have included that tradition as well.  Our kids get up early, and we go see what present Santa left for them.  I love combining both of our childhood traditions for our children so they get to enjoy both.  There are many other traditions that we enjoy and add each year.  Decorating cookies, making gingerbread houses, seeing Christmas lights, going to Disneyland, listening to LOTS of Christmas music and watching just about every Christmas movies are just a few more.

I wanted to share a couple videos we made this Christmas.  I hope you enjoy them.

 

And of course…..

Christmas Gift Ideas with a Twists

merry-christmas_4bd5176

I know most of us are starting to think about Christmas gift ideas for our family and friends. I love giving gifts that will help people be healthier as well as something they will actually use.  Let’s face it, we all have been given that one gift that our family member thought we would love but….lets just say it made a great white elephant gift. I love my mother-in-love but she is notorious for doing this to my husband.  I totally understand why. My husband is probably one of the hardest people to shop for.  His interests are so different and what he likes is so specific it makes it nearly impossible to buy for him.

I wanted to help y’all out with some great gift ideas that are a little outside of the normal. These gifts are good for you both for what they can do and for what they are NOT.

NO CHEMICALS IN THEM

NO TOXINS IN THEM

JUST GOOD FOR YOU INGREDIENTS!!!!!

If you have been following my blog, you know we have been on a journey to a healthier lifestyle.  So much of what we put on us or in us is filled with harmful chemicals and toxins. Laws for the beauty industry are way behind. Very few of the ingredients in our beauty products have ever been tested.  When you compare what’s happen in the US to the European personal product industry, it’s scary. The European Union, over the past 2 decades had banned more then 1,300 chemicals from product formulas used in personal care products.  They have also restricted the levels of over 250 chemicals in their beauty products.  In that same time, the US has only done a partial ban on 11. Scary right.

So I put together a few categories to help cover everyone on your Christmas list not just gifts they love but gifts that are good for them.

RED APPLE LIPSTICK

RED APPLE
Red Apple Products are
Vegan
Gluten Free
Allergen Free
Paraben Free
Cruelty Free
No GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms)
Corn Free
Nut Free
Fragrance Free
Soy Free
Lead Free
AND Toxin Free!  Pretty cool right.  If your a guy that has no idea what colors to pic, maybe a gift card for Red Apple might be a good choice for you.

Here are a few of my favorite products from them.

GIFTS FOR LADIES

I am in LOVE with Red Apple lipstick and lip liner.   It has out preformed my old traditional full of chemicals lipsticks.  My favorite color is Secret.  It  gives just the right amount color for this lay back girl.  For fancier times, I love Gypsy.  It gives me that darker color but without me feeling painted.  Remember I’m a pretty laid back country girl 😉   I have loved all the colors I have tried and wear them daily. Red Apple gives you a 6 month money back guarantee as well as a great selection of samples that you can buy to see what color you like best. That’s pretty amazing!

RED APPLE eye shadow

In the past, I didn’t wear eye shadow because it would end up burning my eyes.  That is no bueno!! No one wants to be on a nice night out and have their eye start watering and burning.  I just stopped wearing eye shadows all together until I tried RAL.  Now I can get all dolled up and not look like a balling mess by time the appetizers arrive. This is HUGE for me.  I love to wear makeup and now I can.  I feel pretty oh so pretty…..

wp-1476243339222.jpg

Don’t worry guys, if you’re not good at wrapping, RAL send their products in these cute bags that will require no additional wrapping.  WIN WIN right!?!

GIFTS FOR TEENS AND TWEENS

This past year my daughter wanted to start playing with makeup.  I don’t mind her doing this but when I read about all the junk in makeup I want to be sure she would be using a safe makeup.  It is scary to hear how many chemicals our teens are exposed to by just putting on 5 body care or make products.  After hearing this, I chose to only get her good products to play with.  I figured it’s better to train her now about the importance of choosing healthy, safe products.

Red Apple lipgloss

These two colors have become my daughters favorites.  Twinkle Toes and Tiny Dancer.  We actually fight over Tiny Dancer.  Plus what cute names!!!

wp-1476245273903.jpg

RAL Eye Shadow

Since my daughter is still young, I choose a couple light shaded of eye shadow for her. These two are great to add a little sparkle and color.  Buttercream and Porcelain

I don’t have any ideas for guys in this category, but don’t worry, I will get them covered in our other lists.

YOUNG LIVING

If you’ve read even one of my previous blog post, you know that I love Young Living.  I have a bunch of great ideas from them.

Gifts for the Ladies

Laundry Set

Wool dryer balls, a bottle of lavender essential oil and a bottle of Thieves Laundry soap.

wp-1477510888130.jpg

I know some may think laundry products, not very romantic. However this could be a great gift for a friend, sister or mother. Dryer sheets, fabric softeners and laundry soaps are full of harmful of toxins.  I stopped using them years ago. This is a great way to remove those chemicals but still have amazing smelling clothes.  Now when I smell clothes that has been washed in traditional laundry products, I get a headache. To me that speaks volume to what is in those products. Want to learn more? Check out this post.

Art Skin Care

Young Living has the ART Skin Care System.  ART stands for ‘Age Refining Technology’. The ART products are formulated with plant-based ingredients and essential oils.  I love that we have access to such effective, luxurious, NATURAL skincare without the harmful ingredients found in almost all other skin care systems! I’m sure that special lady in your life would love it too.

Vitality Herbal Essential Oils

young-living-spice-vitality-line

The Vitality dietary essential oil line, which as of now includes 32 essential oils, gives you a whole new way to discover the versatility of Young Living’s pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils! Cooking with these oils has been so much fun.  From Blueberry Lemon Vitality oil pancakes, to Black Bean and Corn Salsa made with Lime Vitality oil, my whole family can tell the difference in the taste of our food when we cook with these essential oils.  Pair with a new set of  cute dish towels and you have the perfect gift for that foodie in your life.

Water Bottle and Vitality Oil

My hubby bought me this bottle and I love it. It is a stainless steel double wall bottle that keeps my water cold for hours.  It is great for using with my citrus Vitality Oils because it is not made with plastic which is a big no no.  When it comes to citrus oils, you never want to use them in plastic bottles, so this is perfect.  Now I not only  won’t break it when I drop it, (I do that a lot)but I drink more water because it tastes amazing with my  Vitality Essential  oil in it. A couple of my favorites are Lemon and Grapefruit.

Christmas Spirit & a Diffuser

This essential oil smells AMAZING!!!! It mixes all the smells of Christmas in a bottle and just makes our home smell merry and bright. Plus the Aria diffuser is such a beautiful piece of art in its self, you cant go wrong with this combo.

wp-1477510888094.jpg

A Young Living Premium Starter Kit

rainstone-diffuser-2-web

For the creme de la creme of gifts, the premium starter kit would be that gift. I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t love a kit of essential oils and a diffuser.  OK I’m sure there are people that would rather have something eles, but I wish everyone was using these oils.  They have done SOOOOO much for my family I just want to shout it from the roof tops!!!

Gifts For The Men in Your Life

Nirto, NingXia Red and PanAway

wp-1477510887366.jpg

If your guy likes to work out, these 3 items are a must have.

Nitro is great for before a work out.  NingXia Nitro is an all-natural way to increase cognitive alertness, enhance mental fitness, and support overall performance. Its benefits are derived from a wide range of powerful cognitive enhancers, including a proprietary blend of pure black pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils. Combined with these therapeutic-grade essential oils, Bioenergy Ribose improves physical performance, speeds up recovery, and increases overall energy reserves. Other supportive ingredients, such as B vitamins, green tea extract, choline, and Korean ginseng, are added to sharpen the mind and invigorate the senses. NingXia Nitro is a simple and convenient way to become more focused, support mental acuity, and enhance physical performance. Heck, I love this stuff too.

NigXia Red will help your body recover after a work out. NingXia Red is a delicious superfruit beverage that combines whole Ningxia wolfberry puree; a superfruit blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices; natural stevia extract; grape seed extract; pure vanilla extract; and Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils.

PanAway essential oil blend is a proprietary blend of helichrysum, wintergreen, clove, and peppermint designed to relieve muscle soreness and tension.  If you have localized soreness after gardening, working out, or any other physical activity, PanAway is your friend. This proprietary blend is made of Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils that penetrate the skin and soothe soreness after strenuous activity. Gary Young created the blend after a severe injury to his leg. It can be used to relieve sore muscles and enhance overall well-being.

Gifts for the tween, teen and college kids

Orb Diffuser and Stress Away Essential Oil

I don’t know about you, but homework can be stressful, so why not an Orb diffuser and a bottle of Stress Away. This diffuser conveniently plugs into a USB port and is ready to rock.  Pair that with a bottle of Stress Away, and homework maybe just a little more enjoyable.

wp-1477510887715.jpg

 Young Living Lip Balm

This lip balm is the BOMB.  At first I thought it was crazy to spend $4 on a lip balm, but  when I got it, I understood why.  I don’t have to put it on as often because it just stays on my lips.  I use to apply at least hourly but know I apply maybe twice a day. These are great for stocking suffers too.

wp-1477513316492.jpg

Orange Blossom Face Wash & Satin Facial Scrub

I think these 2 are must have for every young person. The Orange Blossom Face Wash and the Satin Facial Scrub are great gift ideas.  Both are perfect for keeping your youthful skin glowing and healthy without all the horrible chemicals in traditional facial products.

wp-1477513316500.jpg

Northern Lights Black Spruce

This oil has a smell that appeals to almost everyone.  It is on my hubbies favorites list and mine too.  It evokes a spirit of adventure for me and I love how when I smell it I want to go have more adventures.

wp-1477513317054.jpg

So there you go, my recommendations for Healthy Christmas Presents for the whole family.

Why I Love Sharing Young Living with Others

This past month, I was honored by Young Living for making the rank of Silver to an all experience paid retreat in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Here’s a little recap of the retreat.

Thursday bright and early, actually it was still dark when I left my house it was so early, I flew out with a couple other members. We registered, grabbed lunch and chatted about all the amazing things we were about to do.

They treated us to a 5 star hotel.            The Grand America Hotel.

We had a delicious  meal and welcome event that we all dressed up for.

Friday we headed to the Mona Farm.

We got to see the SEED TO SEAL process right before our eyes.

At lunch Gary Young came out and talked about his passion for this company. It was so easy to see how much he cares about us and this company.

We had lots of free time to explore the farm and enjoy the many activities they had going on.

Playing with the Young Living draft horses was one of the major highlights of my day.

Saturday we were treated to some super motivating and educating  workshops were I learned so much.

Sunday we had time to explore a little before our flight home so we headed up to Park City. WOW!! What a beautiful place. All the trees looked so amazing with thier leaves changing color for Fall.

We stopped at the Olympic training center and  got to see some skiers practice.  It was amazing!!!!

Then it was time to head back home.

No matter how much fun it was, I was so happy to see my family.

After this expericnce, now more then ever, I want every person on my team to have the opportunity to make it to at least one of these amazing retreats.

I am excited to see where God takes me on this journey.

If you are interested in joining my team, I’d love to help you.  Please email me at Younglivingcountrygirl@gmail.com
