We are the gatekeepers.⁣ ⁣ We decide what products we use on our bodies, what food we eat, what items we use to clean our home.⁣ ⁣ We get to make those choices. We also get to decide if we want to listen. If we want to do better for our bodies, our families, and our planet. ⁣ ⁣ We have the freedom to support sustainability. To support fair trade. To support the entrepreneur. ⁣ ⁣ Link arms with the company that steps up to the plate and pays to have their lavender fields hand weeded because they refuse to use pesticides. The company that is involved in every single step of producing the product you use in your home from before the seed is planted to the moment that product is sealed. The company that is more concerned with their people and being good stewards to the earth than they are about their bottom line. The company that is pledging to be zero waste. The company that bring awareness to human trafficking. The company that ACTUALLY FREAKING CARES ABOUT HUMANS.⁣ ⁣ You have so much power. Please don’t chose to ignore it. Vote with your dollars friends. Demand better.⁣ ⁣ Know better and then DO BETTER. ⁣ ⁣ For you. ⁣ For the next generation.⁣ For this earth.⁣ ⁣ Pay attention to what you allow in your home. Be the gatekeeper. ✌🏼⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #yleo #youngliving #thieves #essentialoils #philly #ourphilly #philadelphia #holisticliving #greenlifestyle #mindbodygram #mindbodygreen #nourishyourself #holisticlifestyle #bedeeplyrooted #bestofmom #habitandhome #ohheymamas #nestlingly #slowmotherhood #thelifestyle #simpleandstill #stillswithstories #thehappynow #seekthesimplicity #choosejoy #feelfreefeed #makemoment #makeitblissful #aromatherapy #oilyfamily

Aloha, from my favorite terrace to watch sunsets in Honolulu. A little offering of fallen florals picked from my daily walks for this beautiful moment. Does the sky and the ocean remind you of a collision of citrines and topaz? 🌺🔥

I’m having my first extended period of time away from Sawyer since he was an infant and I. Am. Feeling. It.😩 He had one night with his Nana when he was a baby but it was short and we went and got him first thing in the morning. We are taking a trip to Kingston this weekend to visit family but instead of all of us going on Friday, Grandma took Sawyer home with her this morning. Jared, Rosie and I will drive there tomorrow after Jared finishes work so we probably won’t see Sawyer until Saturday morning. I know he’s okay. Having a blast probably staying up late being a terror and doing what kids do at Grandma’s house😂 but I miss my baby. Rosie, Nana and I hung out in Sawyer’s room tonight before bed 😂 Even with all the hard moments in our days when I think I need a break, when that break comes I don’t know what to do with myself. This is a jumbled, rambled mess of emotional mom thoughts (surprisingly I haven’t cried 😂😂yet.) but it’s honest and real and this is what’s on my mind right now so here it is. Let me know if you can relate so I don’t feel so nuts 🥜

Had lots of leftover apricots from our apricot chicken dinner last night, so Miss 3 and I made these apricot oat cookies purely from pantry items we had lying around. Love it when we have a grocery budgeting win! But, they are healthy - so the kids probably won’t end up eating them 😂 How do you make sure to use up food you already have to save money? I’d love to hear your tips!

Myth: "This is so beautiful but I don't think I can pull it off..." Fact: Yes you can! This is one of the most common misconceptions I hear women say. Listen I totally get that you feel like you aren't cool enough (something I've also heard many times) or brave enough or have the right outfit or whatever. I get that, but I also know that the heart wants what the heart wants and buying a piece of jewelry is a very emotional thing no matter where you are buying it from. Don't sell yourself short, if you like it and are drawn to it - you are cool enough, you are brave enough and hell you might even pull together something amazing in your closet that goes great with your new piece that you would've never put together before.💃 Never sell yourself short by walking away from something you like feeling less than. Double tap if you agree. ✨ Photo: @faithrowleyphotos Model: @_bellakait #fashionistastyle #fashionchallenge #stylish #accessories #trendy #earrings #fashionjewelry #instajewelry #stillswithstories #dreamersandoers #lovelysquares #littlestoriesofmylife #verilymoments #makemoments #simplepleasures #inspiremyinstagram #cornersofmyworld #posttheordinary #alliseeispretty #lifeunscripted #makeitblissful #forahappymoment #wearitloveit #jewelryboutique #wholesalejewelry #shootandshare

Felling all things fall. Never really one to dabble in oranges but we scored some coppery colored roses and mums and they tied in well with the golds so... 🤷🏻‍♀️🍂🌾 when in Rome... . . Yesterday’s party with @mih@mihocateringco was just magical. Not only are they kicking butt and now have a venue space you can rent out, but they’ve also upped their menu game and offer so many fun new tasty dishes. We had seconds of everything... love you guys like family 😘 @mihocateringco @samistraus @lindsay_nicole_86 @eljuanmiron ❤️
