500 Followers Celebration Giveaways

The other day I looked and realized that I had 500 followers on Instagram. It made me want to celebrate, so I thought I’d do something fun for my readers and followers. So I’m going to do two giveaways.

My first promotion goes along with my goal to give every Mom the opportunity to reach for a chemical-free product first for their family. From now until October 2, 2017, I’m offering $20 cash-back off of the Young Living Starter Kit. This is the best way to start using essential oils! It comes with 11 oils and a diffuser.

With this kit purchase, you also get my help in learning how to use essential oils, a download with the uses for oils and how to incorporate them into your daily lifestyle, and access to my private Facebook oil support group, Drop Culture. The group is loaded with information and gives you an opportunity to ask questions whenever you need to know something! It’s a great educational community! I won’t leave you with a kit not knowing what to do with it. Education is key! Please email me with questions at myrealdish@gmail.com about how to purchase this kit and get started!

If you live outside of the USA, just go to the home page of Young Living, select your country, click on become a member, and type in my member number into the sponsor and enroller fields: 1626976.

DIY Spa and Beauty Recipes

After walking 10 miles a day in Spain this summer, I realized that my skin needed a little TLC. I love making my own beauty products with essential oils because  (1) it saves money, (2) they are chemical-free, and (3) they smell great! I always seem to make a Lemon Body Scrub or a Coconut Lime Scrub, but I wanted to switch it up a bit. These DIY spa and skin care recipes are perfect for your summer beauty regime!

Spring Break

I was so happy to be at home with my kids for spring break. I even kept my son home from preschool all week. However, today – was my last day of break. I go back tomorrow. Woo hoo!

Too many tears, fighting, and ungratefulness going on here in this house with these two children of mine. Friday I kept my daughter and her two friends all day. We went to Beauty and the Beast and to play in the park after. Then my daughter cried after her 8 hour playdate was over. REALLY?!   Saturday, we bought her a new scooter with light up wheels. She cried when we went to the park with it. REALLY?! This morning I woke up early, and she and I made homemade vegan paleo donuts (I’ll post the recipe soon). Well, it turns out she didn’t want vanilla icing – she wanted vanilla donuts. My son didn’t want long john’s – he wanted donuts with holes. Tears. Really?! After they ate them, they said they were the best donuts ever! #crazychildren.

I couldn’t hang in there any longer today. My 4 year-old son (who is normally a sweet boy) told me that I was the worst mom ever and he hated me because I turned off the Wii. MOM IS DONE.

I applied some joy and gratitude and made it until bedtime. Thank goodness for oils and a sweet friend who came over and brought some wine. It’s a good reminder of whyI work outside of the home. My hat is off to stay-at-home-parents. Tomorrow I will be grateful for my job.
