Simply Earth | August's Recipe Box

Hey everyone!

Happy August!

2 weeks until the older kids start school...2 WEEKS!

I know I sound like a broken record, but come on...really? 2 weeks?

Ugh.

I find that, as the kids get older, spending time with them becomes more and more fun for me - and less and less work...and the days just go by way too fast. My daughter will be a junior in high school this year, and my older son will be a freshman, and I just can't seem to wrap my head around that quite yet.

But alas, I digress. I'll have to wallow in my own self-pity later.

Right now I'm focused on all of the amazing that you'll find in the Simply Earth August Recipe Box! Woo hoo!

This month is all about your skin.

And let me tell you...if there's one area in my life that needs a TON of work, it's my skin.
I've dealt with acne and scarring since I was a teen, but after I had kids, my skin really went crazy.
I've got wrinkles & pimples & uneven patches & sun damage.

Basically, I'm a mess.

But I've found that products with a ton of chemicals and promises just don't do the trick for me.

That's why I'm so excited about this month's box.

Wanna see what's inside?
I't's like everything I ever wanted in one little box!

Here are the essential oils that are included:

  • Rosemary:
Uses:
  • Relieves sore, tight muscles
  • Uplifts
  • Clears the mind
  • Warms
  • Inhibits growth of fungus

  • Frankincense:
Uses:
  • Assists in fighting germs
  • Reduces symptoms related to bronchitis and sinus congestion
  • Alleviates Swelling
  • Deodorizes
  • Clears the mind

  • Clove:
Uses:
  • Warms mind and body
  • Improves focus
  • Promotes confidence
  • Helps fight seasonal illnesses

  • Clear Skin Blend:
This lovely-smelling blend contains a mix of Tea Tree, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Juniper Berry & Lemon oils

Uses:
  • Clears skin
  • Reduces redness

And these are the recipes you'll be able to make using the cards included in your box...


  • Feel Good Morning Diffuser
This is a delightful blend sure to wake you up and get you going!

  • Frankincense Face Scrub
This scrub contains oatmeal, brown sugar, and honey (not included in your box)...the perfect all-natural exfoliator!

  • Rosemary Facial Steam
Have you ever steamed your face? Man, it feels so good...

  • Skin Renewing Face Mask
This month's Recipe Box even comes with a reusable sheet mask!


  • Hydrosol Facial Toner
Apple Cider Vinegar (not included in your box) & Lavender Hydrosol work together to calm and tone your skin & to remove any leftover dirt and grime. I love this stuff.

NOTE: The little bottle I have shown here is not large enough to hold the entire amount of toner produced from the recipe. I ended up mixing the toner in a larger container and pouring it into two of these little bottles.

  • Moisturizing Face Cream

  • Clear Skin Roll On
This roll-on is a must for me. I love that I can carry it along with me and just dab a bit onto breakouts whenever I need to.

Your perfect skin care routine...with enough ingredients to last for months!

And that's just August's box...imagine getting a box filled with amazing products like this - and recipes for how to use them - every 30 days!

And honestly, for just $39/month with FREE SHIPPING, how can you go wrong?

$39 per month!

In September's box we'll be making soap! The essential oils that will be included are: Happy Joy Blend, Lemongrass, Bay & Cajeput...ooooooh, I've never heard of Cajeput...I'm intrigued...

I could go on & on about how much I love these oils...and how much I love Simply Earth as a company - did you know they donate 13% of all of their profits to help end human trafficking? Read all about their cause HERE

Simply Earth | July's Recipe Box

Hey everyone!

Long time, no see!

We've been doing a ton of traveling for my sons' baseball teams since school ended, but we've made it to the ends of their seasons and now we're home...until, of course, an impromptu trip or two comes up...(those are my favorite kind of trips...).

Walking through Walmart yesterday, I was slapped in the face (almost literally considering the mass amount of school supplies they've shoved in between every single aisle...sigh) with the realization that the kids are heading back to school before I know it, and I wondered to myself how this is even possible. I mean, ALREADY?!

It's just about time to stock up on new notebooks & folders and to get back into an earlier-to-bed routine...two things I actually really love about the start of school.

And the Simply Earth July Recipe Box is doing its part to help make the transition from crazy-summer-stuff to calmer-school-stuff easier...

Wanna see what's inside this month's box?

  • Quells queasy stomach

  • Fir Needle:
Uses:

  • Fights fatigue

A must-have oil, for sure....I use Lavender oil all the time! In fact, I have a bottle in almost every room in my house.

Uses:
  • Calms
  • Promotes healthy skin
  • Relieves sore Muscles
  • Relaxes
  • Boosts immunity

  • Sweet Dreams Blend:
This wonderful blend contains Lavender, Marjoram, Frankincense, Cedarwood (Himalayan) & German Chamomile oils.

The perfect scent to diffuse while your kids are getting back into their school routines.

Exactly what YOU'LL need while the kids are getting back into their school routines...(smile).

It's that time again! Graduation! What I'm loving right now...Basic Invite

It's that time of year again...graduation!

I just can't believe how quickly time goes. I mean, I've heard people say that forEVER, but I think that until you get a bit older, and/or until you have kids, you don't really understand just how fast it goes.

Case in point...in just over a week, my almost 14 year old son will be graduating from 8th grade.

8th GRADE!

It seems like just yesterday he was helping my husband tune up our bicycles...


And now he's this man-sized, always-eating, hysterically funny, baseball-loving almost grown-up.


It's scary.

And awesome.

He doesn't want a huge party to celebrate his graduation...in fact, he just wants to have a few of his closest friends over...and that's OK by me.

But we still need to celebrate in style, right? 

So when Basic Invite asked me if I would take a look at some of their design graduation party invitations, I jumped at the chance!





Basic Invite prides itself on being one of the few invitation websites that offers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. And, once you select your design you can change the color of each element on the card using 180 different color options!  So you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the smallest detail. 

I mean, really...180 different color options??? With instant previews???


PLUS, at Basic Invite you can order a printed sample of your actual invitation before you place your final order. I LOVE that option...I mean, seeing your choices online is one thing, but actually being able to hold your finished design in your hand before you order is really something that makes Basic Invite stand out.

Here are a couple of my favorite printed graduation invitation designs...



I LOVE this simplicity of this card...it's so timeless and lovely.



And the full-photo background is another one of my favorites...especially for boys.

My daughter will be graduating from high school in a couple of years...and I'll definitely be checking out some of these cute graduation party invitations for her.



I love the idea of putting your grad's future school on the card, too!

Basic Invite also has custom thank you cards available...



...and don't even get me started on the available foil options!


Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold...and you can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

So elegant...

And just because I love them so much, I have to show you these gorgeous CLEAR business cards available at Basic Invite!

CLEAR BUSINESS CARDS!



I'm dead.

And right now, until the end of the month, Basic Invite is offering 15% off of any order with the code:

15FF51


Don't have a grad this year? Or looking for something different?

Basic Invite has you covered!

In addition to graduation invitations, announcements & thank you cards, they also offer every single piece of wedding/shower correspondence you could ever need...baby/birthday/Mitzvah invitations, PLUS stationery & business cards! 

Basic Invite also hosts free wedding & birthday websites!

So cool!

Check out everything they have to offer HERE...and don't forget to add the code 15FF51 when you check out to get 15% off your order!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Now get on over to Basic Invite!
