5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

I hope everyone is had a great week, I know I did. We had some warmish weather here in south eastern Wisconsin, meaning 30-50 degrees with rain.  Which was so nice compared to the 20 or colder temperatures.  But besides the weather here are the 5 things im loving right now.

1. Essential Oil Sleep Blend

I have been loving my essential oil sleep blend that I made a awhile back. In this blend I have orange, lavender, pomegranate and chamomile. Lavender is a great sleep aid orange can help ease anxiety, pomegranate is one of my favorite smells and chamomile for calming.  I love how orange and lavender smell together, it is one of my favorite mixes.

2. Sea Salt Spray

I found this sea salt spray called Salty Dog by EVO on amazon and heard some people on Instagram really liking it. So I thought i would give it a try. So far I really like it. It doesn’t leave your hair dry feeling, as long you don’t put too much in and it smells good. I’m not even sure how to describe it.

3. The Ultimate Guide

The ultimate guide to tarot by Liz dean. This is a great book for reading tarot, I find it very useful and helpful. There are a few tarot spreads and tips to help you read tarot better.

4. The Path

Last week I finished up Season 2 of The 12 monkeys on Hulu and now I started season 3 of The Path, also on Hulu. It was a show I wasn’t sure that I would like at first, but after a few episodes I was so into it. I just find this show to be so fascinating. Right now I’m on episode 3 or 4 and it’s really good so far.

5. Heel Genius by Soap and Glory

Heel Genius by Soap and Glory is great! I use this quite often during the week for my feet. I put this on at bedtime and let it do its magic. By morning my feet feel so soft. Sometimes I will use it on my hands too if they are super dry.things im loving right now

Happy Planner Haul

Back in January Michael’s was having their 60% off sale on planners and accessories during the New Year and I might have gone a little over board. I have been adding items, that I have been wanting on a wish list all year. I don’t think I paid more than $12 for any of the items that I bought. Really, I’m just trying to make my self and bank account feel better. But, it was a really good sale. The paper puncher alone is normally $30 and I got it basically for $12. What a deal, it was well worth the wait.

So here are the items I bought.

10 Essential Crystals

Who doesn’t love a pretty rock? The ones I list are some of  my favorites and what I feel everyone should have, if they collect and work with crystals. They are all commonly used crystals and each crystal that I list has unique properties and energies to heal different aspects of your life.  Granted there are so many more out in the world and I can’t list every single one out there. I’m sure there will be more blog posts on crystals in the future.

10 Essential Crystals

Amethyst

Deeply cleansing, Amethyst purifies negative energies. You can also use Amethyst for protection and developing your natural psychic abilities. Amethyst cames in many shades of purple, from dark to light. Amethyst has healing powers and is  Chakra balancing.

Clear Quartz

An essential crystal and the most versatile crystal and can have many purposes. Clear Quartz can also enhance the energy of other crystals.  Since Clear Quartz absorbs energies very easily, clearing these stones on a regular basis should be important. Clear Quartz also protects against negativity.  Clear Quartz is most often used to cleanse, open, activate, and  can be used to align all of the chakras.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is known for helping with love,  self-esteem, restores confidence, helps with emotional balance, releases stress/tension/anger, and helps curb jealousy. Even though Rose Quartz does have a high energy, the vibration is also calming and soothing. Rose Quartz is used for the  Heart Chakra.

Golden Tigers Eye

Great for protection,  building confidence and self belief. Tigers Eye also  connects us with the Earth, making it a good choice for grounding stone. Ancients used Tiger Eye as a talisman against bad luck and curses. Tigers eye is also a great healing stone.  Golden Tiger Eye is a powerful Solar Plexus Chakra stone, very helpful to manifest ideas into reality and giving courage when needed.

Selenite

Selenite is an excellent choice for working with the third eye and crown chakras.  Selenite can also help you through meditation Selenite has a  powerful vibration  and can clear, open, and activate the Crown and Higher Chakras and is excellent choice  for all spiritual work.

Citrine

Citrine attracts abundance,  creativity and is  great cleanser and regenerator. This stone does not need to be  cleansed. Citrine also opens the mind to new ideas and following through.  Often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, Citrine can also be used to cleanse all Chakras.

Carnelian

Carnelian is excellent for restoring vitality and motivation. It is also a high energy crystal and  creates a boost of power, creativity, energy, vitality and sexuality. Carnelian is useful in making decisions by keeping us focused. Carnelian is a powerful Sacral Chakra Stone

Hematite

Hematite is metallic crystal that protects  you from psychic attacks and negative energies. Hematite also strengthens your aura while defecting these harmful energies that you may come across. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to convert negative energies into positive vibrations.

Black Obsidian

Black Obsidian Stone is a powerful cleanser and is a strong protection stone. Black Obsidian has powerful properties that will help to shield you against negativity and energy blockages, and has a tendency to work quickly.  Black Obsidian is Root Chakra stone.

Labradorite

Labradorite is a stone of magic, awakening mystical and magical abilities and psychic powers. It strengthens  intuition, balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Highly mystical, Labradorite is great for working with the Third Eye Chakra

Crystals can be worn as jewelry, carried in your pocket,  in your purse,  next to your bed or in a place where you spend a lot of time at. They are great to use during meditation, and some can help to amplify your prayers. I personally keep clear quartz in each room since this crystal clears nagitvity and I also keep a tiny bag with all seven chakra coordinated crystals in my purse and also in our bedroom. I also use crystals to cleanse my tarot cards, new and used.

Let me know if you have a favorite crystal and what do you use it for?

February Blogger Spotlight

I can’t believe that we are half way through February. Pretty soon it will be march, and  hopefully March will have warmer weather this year in Wisconsin. Anyways,  here is this months Blogger Spotlight, Melina from ivefoundwaldo.  Basically I sent Melina some questions and she answered them for us to get to know her better.

  • Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
    Well, my name’s Melina. I’m a 23 blogger from the United States. I live super close to New York City, so I like to spend most of my weekends there! I like to blog about Beauty, Lifestyle, and Travel! Also, I’m a Slytherin.

 

  • What inspired you to start your blog?
    I was in an extremely low point in my life. I was going to therapy, and one day my therapist asked what was one thing I’ve always wanted to do. I told her that I always wanted to create a blog. She told me that I should do it. She said it was going to be a positive hobby to have and keep my mind off of the negative. Here I am over a year later! Extremely grateful that she pushed me to create a blog.

 

  • Who are your three favorite bloggers or influencers and why?
    This is always the hardest question that’s always asked in the blogging community. There is so much talent, and I find it extremely hard to pinpoint just one. It’s tough to choose just three! I would definitely have to say The Little Plum from http://thelittleplum.co.uk/. I actually made  post and included her as one of my favorite bloggers. She’s just so down to earth, honest and real. Every post she creates just sucks me in. I also love Maria from https://www.mariaj.co.uk/. She’s one of those people that you look at in the blogging industry and you think that she has the full package. She’s really winning in the blogging game, and I am so proud of her! She’s such a doll. Last but not least, I would include Lydia from https://lydiaelisemillen.com/. I actually found her YouTube channel before finding her blog. Now I find that I love her blog so much more than her YouTube channel. She just has a wonderful way with words. All three of them do! They are so unapologetically themselves, and for that I love them and their blogs.

 

  • What inspires you to keep moving forward with your blog?
    I honestly don’t know what else I would be doing. I love blogging so  much. It makes me so happy. Sometimes there are certain aspects that I don’t like about blogging, but I wouldn’t give up blogging for anything. I love having a place where I can express myself and my thoughts.  I love the sense of community blogging gives me. I love meeting like-minded people. There is so much positivity and happiness blogging has brought me, that blogging helps me move forward with my own life! It gives me ambition and drive.

 

  • What is one piece of advice you would give to someone wanting to start their very own blog?
    You’re going to look online for a way to have a successful blog. Everyone’s going to give you these roundabout answers that don’t really help at all. The one piece of advice is to just start. It’s a work in progress. You will get better. You have to be patient. Get involved with the community, they are so nice, and will help you along the way. Finally, write about what you want to, forget about niches or whatever anyone else tells you. People notice when you’re writing about something you genuinely want to talk about. (Sorry, I honestly have so much advice to give, that I couldn’t give only one!)
