In vs. Out

Coming off of the Lilly for Target madness on Sunday and having the busiest weekend ever, I just knew this week was going to be a good one (as in go by fast). Last weekend was so fufilling that I found myself not dreading the work week (this weekend has big shoes to fill). Plus,  I secretly like to be busy, it inspires me!

Here's what's In and Out this week:



WHAT'S IN

Young Living Essential Oils--you guys. This is the real deal. I've been researching and getting samples for MONTHS before deciding to take the plunge this week. I had my kit over-nighted, I was THAT excited. Don't worry, it was in the budget, so I didn't break my spending freeze (kinda). For someone who goes to the Redi-Med or Urgent Care for every little ache and pain, this could prove useful for my hypochondriac self.




The Premium Starter Kit comes with 10 oils and a diffuser--I've already been diffusing the oil combo of Purification + Lemon and I kid you not, my apartment smells like a spa (it usually smells like old furniture, what my neighbors had for lunch/dinner, or cigarette smoke--neighbors again). So, I can already see the benefits. I promise to post more about them as I learn!

Being recognized by big companies-- I realize a lot of us bloggers were asked to participate in the Wayfair #CoffeeMyWay campaign, but how cool does it feel to be sought out and involved in something like that! What a community. I just love it! And hey, you have to start somewhere right?





Blog Business Cards -- Yep. It's happening. Stay tuned next week!

Supporting Small Businesses -- Some of my favorites: Revieux and Bijoux Avenue Designs

Can't forget these: Meeting and exceeding blog goals, having a post go viral, snail mail, and staying up late enough to watch the Disney throwback shows (think Kim Possible, Cheetah Girls, Even Stevens).


WHAT'S OUT:

Rainy Weekends--enough is enough Mother Nature. I'm starting to see why they call it "April Showers" Hoping to see those "May Flowers" any day now!

Being in a semi-long distance relationship-- Ok so Joshua and I are only 45 minutes apart, but with him applying for jobs and me working 9-5 everyday we only see each other on the weekends. It's dumb and I hate it.

Also out this week: Dumb questions, snobby people, not knowing what the future holds (seriously my Type A-ness can't even), and #LillyforTarget being sold out.



How was your week? Got any plans for the weekend?

  1. I have been debating the essential oils thing for months now. I need to suck it and do it, I think!

  2. I love my essential oils! It is crazy that something so 'simple' can fix problems that I have too been going to the hospital or web md-ing! As far as not knowing what is going the happen in the future, I think everyone gets that feeling once..or twice in life and although it is stressful, I am sure it will be worth it to be patient while it works out in your favor!

    Have a great weekend girl!

  4. I've heard some great things about the essential oils - I have yet to try them. The huge company reaching out to us is awesome! and I can't wait to see your blog business cards. I was thinking of it but than I thought who would I give them too?

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Semi-long distant is just as hard as long distance sometimes. When my now husband and I started dating we lived an hour apart. So we had to really schedule our time together. I really want to get some business cards, where are you getting yours?

      Whitney from Heart and Arrow Designs (who designed my blog) designed them and I am printing them through moo.com! You can also design through moo.com too --I have a coupon code for 10% off your first print if you end up getting some!

  7. I've been looking at getting essential oils too but didn't know if you could order the kits without being a distributor. I'm assuming you can?

  10. Long distance relationship sucks. I've been in your shoes. But you guys have been dating for 6 years I'm sure you guys can handle it. Hopefully he finds a job soon.
