Essential Oils 101

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Be Informed, Be Whole, Featured Posts, Green Living, Healthy Moms, Looking Home, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

About a month ago I walked into my friend Karen’s house and exclaimed, “What’s that AMAZING smell?  Am I going to get a massage?”  It was her essential oil diffuser spreading a whole lot of incredible lavender and peace and calming love into the room…..and I couldn’t get enough.  Later that weekend we rubbed a...

Women & Work Series {Rachel}

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 in Be Informed, Mom as Manager, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

Over the years, I have spent a significant amount of time and energy thinking about my career. I struggled with the reality that my career was going to take a different path after we had kids. I worked through dissecting my identity from what “I did”. I found myself juggling a few part-time jobs plus being a full-time mom and feeling...

Women, especially Mothers in the workforce is a hot topic! It seems that I’ve read about a million articles and books on this topic…..am I damaging my children by working outside the home? am I damaging my career by staying at home? am I damaging my mental health by trying to do and be everything? am I going to hit the glass ceiling? am...

“So, what do you do?” It’s everywhere; that question.  My gut reaction is to always say, “I’m a mom….first.”  It’s what I’m most proud of.  It’s the “thing” I do that I believe to be the most important.  And it’s true 100%.  And I think you’d be hard-pressed to find...

How to lock your iPhone Screen (so your kid can play and she won’t accidentally text your boss)

Posted by on Feb 24, 2014 in App Love, Be Informed, Be Inspired, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

I let my kids play with my phone. Not all the time, but there are definitely moments when it comes in handy….like when your 1-year-old is about to have a tantrum in the middle of that cute brunch place….or while waiting in line at the DMV….or when you’re boarding a two-hour flight home at 7am after an...

Filtration…is My Friend: #PureAirBlog and my Miele Marin

Posted by on Dec 10, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Looking Home, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 0 comments

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post. It has been almost three months since I started using my Miele Marin, and I’m still loving it…for many different reasons. It’s convenient, efficient, and all-around awesome. But one of the key points of my Miele training back in September was that their vacuums “create a cleaner...

What are your kids doing over Thanksgiving? Free Birds & Chuck E. Cheese?

Posted by on Nov 27, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 0 comments

When my kids and I have some time together, we will often sit down for a “family meeting” where I ask them what they want to do. The two things that always make the list are Chuck E. Cheese and watching a kids movie. Without fail. No existential educational activities, just pure silly fun. We were able to combine the two with the...

Hit up Best Buy this holiday season for some great deals…

Posted by on Nov 26, 2013 in Be Informed, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

Thanks to Best Buy for sponsoring this post….and for the coupon codes! For the last few days, I have been hearing rumors about people tenting it outside of Best Buy already. I hope that isn’t the case here in West Michigan, because it is something like 20 degrees colder than the average temperature for this time of year. Regardless of...

Everyone Deserves a Miele…#pureairblog

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Be Informed, Looking Home, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post. I think everyone has a dirty part of their house that drives them bonkers. Pet hair on sofas, dust that collects at the bottom of curtains, cobwebs in tall corners, or my personal pet peeve…the crumbs and dirt that appear on my floors daily. Whatever it might be, everyone deserves an opportunity to...

Meeting the Marin: A first look at the Miele #pureairblog Canister Vacuum!

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Looking Home, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 1 comment

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post.  Shortly after I returned home from my #pureairblog adventure with Miele, I found these two boxes sitting on my front porch. I wanted to pop them open immediately, but I sat on my hands until the kids were in bed that night so that my husband and I could unpack in...
