Quiet Spirit

It’s taken many years of walking and obeying the Lord, yoga, meditation, prayer, and simplifying every aspect of my life to truly embrace my inner self and achieving a quiet spirit. In fact, I still am a work in progress, but I have come a long way!

While this does please God, I believe that He wants us to achieve this for ourselves and for those around us.

Why hold onto anger, anxiety, stress, and worry when we can achieve peace of mind and help those around us?

Even in the tangible sense, why hold onto clutter when we can live in peace and simplicity and free ourselves from maintaining and drowning in stuff?!

Make an effort to simplify every aspect of your life. You can start small with cleaning out that junk drawer and eliminating social media at night. Every small effort will make a difference in your overall health so that you can be your best and help others!

Lip Scrub DIY

This dry winter weather and the dryness caused by heaters have resulted with my lips being dry and flaky.

I’ve looked around at purchasing a lip scrub but was not a fan of the prices! This inspired me to learn how to make my own. Why purchase something when you can make your own?!

This Sugar Lip Scrub only contains three ingredients:

  • One part brown sugar
  • One part coconut oil
  • Quarter part honey

In a double boiler, I warmed the coconut oil until it liquified.

Once liquified, I poured it into a bowl and added the brown sugar and honey. Let the mixing begin!

After mixing, I placed the bowl in the refrigerator to allow the coconut oil to harden. This takes about 10 minutes at most!

Then I took the bowl out and mixed again. After I reached the consistency that I liked, I placed into my container.

Try to be creative with your container. I recycled an old tea tin as my container! This has allowed me to save money and avoid waste.

I love the results! When I apply the scrub on at night (this is now a new night ritual), I massage my lips to exfoliate and lightly pat the sugar away with a towel. You don’t want to fully wipe away because the coconut oil and honey are a natural lip balm!

I hope this inspires you to make your own lips scrub!

Valentines Day!

Remember that you are all loved on this day! No matter if you have a significant other or not, love exists all around us.

Most importantly, strive to show love rather than to expect to receive it. That is when the magic happens!

Today my husband and I took the day off of work for a romantic day of getting all of his wisdom teeth retracted! 😂😅 So, if anything, most of you will have a much better day than his! I will be his caregiver and spend the remainder of the day crocheting, watching Netflix, and enjoying the French Macarons that he got me today!

Pause

Before you blurt out your opinion, purchase that item, make that decision…

Pause

Does your opinion help others or hurt others? Do you really need that item? Did you carefully ponder your decision?

Pausing prevents us from impulsive decisions. Pausing can even promote peace. Be mindful in all of your decisions!

Baby Garden Shoes

Making these shoes have given me some serious Spring Vibes! These were an order I had received and made them in size 6-12 mos.

What I love about crochet is that I get to be a part of the slow and sustainable fashion/product movement. I’m completely against fast fashion! Plus I get to personalize each product as I please!

Happy Monday!
