Cleaning your Essential Oil Diffuser

Anyone one who has an essential oil diffuser knows they should clean the diffuser at lest monthly. No? That’s okay because I didn’t either, it wasnt untill one day I went to add oils into the one in our bedroom and notice it was very dirty inside and thought, hmm I should clean this. But I didn’t know how to. So I did some research (meaning Pinterest and google) and found a very easy way to clean my diffusers.

In order to keep you diffuser to run well you should wipe it out after each use and letting it air dry. You can run some lemon oil in your diffuser for a bit and it will make wiping out the inside much easier. Some diffusers don’t use water and you can still clean it by rinsing the nozzle and wiping it clean.

But first before you start cleaning make sure of what kind diffuser you have since there are so many different kinds out there.

Deep Cleaning

  1. Turn off your diffuser.
  2. Fill the water reservoir halfway to the line with clean water.
  3. Add 10 drops of white vinegar to the water reservoir.
  4. Turn it on and let run for 3-5 minutes, allowing the vinegar to run through.
  5. Drain the water reservoir completely.
  6. Wipe down the edges of the reservoir and the ultrasonic mist chip at the bottom.
  7. Rinse the water reservoir with clean water.

This method of cleaning works well with the diffuser’s that I own. I hope this helps anyone with a diffuser who was unsure how to clean one or didnt know they should!

Social Media Planner

For the last year my Social Media Planner has been very helpful with planning out blog posts, Etsy, Twitter- personal account and RT Accounts and Facebook. I have really enjoyed my Marble Happy Planner but sadly once June is over I will be starting in a new planner. I am so excited to start in my new planner, I will most likely have a blog post up when that time comes.

I could not pass up this cover, I love it. The colors and the saying is one of my favorites. This cover is awesome, it snaps, has pockets and a pen loop.

Blog

In my planner I have a list of blog topics that I  would like to write about. This helps me brain storm on ideas and I can keep track of what topics  I have blogged about or ones I would like to. Once I move into my new planner I may rewrite this list out and get rid of ideas or add new ones.

At the beginning of  every month I write down the topics that I think or will like to write about for that month. I might not get through the whole list, it might only be 4-8 topics for that month but it gives me an idea if I feel stuck or not sure what to write about. Or I can bounce back and forth between blog posts if I feel stuck as I write.

In the first two rows I write out what I need to do for blog post I’m working on for that week. Here I took pictures before I planned out the week. Once I move into the new planner I am thinking of changing the layout of how I do my weekly’s and even thinking of combining my social media and my wellness planner since I feel like I have too much space in both planners. I have the next six months or so to decide if I am going to do this, since my wellness planner goes until December.

Etsy, Twitter & Facebook

In the last box I make reminders to schedule thread topics for my Twitter RT account and Facebook Groups. This is also how I keep track what days are what threads and also to set up my scheduled blog tweets. I will note when upcoming  relistings are due for my esty or any projects that I am working on.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my social media planner.

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!)

Story behind my blog name

How I came about the name for my blog was by complete accident. About this time last year  I wanted to get back into blogging but wanted to change the name and feel of it. I just didn’t know what I wanted to change it too. Finally it hit me around march.

Lifestyle Blog alternative health beauty makeup DIY bullet journaling

We had moved in to a new apartment in January and was loving the amount of sunlight that was coming in from the windows. My plants also loved it.  I had placed a few plants, aloe, zebra and some cactus, in the window stills thinking that I was doing a good thing for them. Turns out it was way to much sun for some of them. My poor aloe plant use to be a nice bright and healthy green color with strong leaves was now a dark and sickly green with squishy leaves. My aloe plant was sunburned.

I felt horrible and moved the plant to spot in the kitchen that didn’t get as bright with sunlight. I only watered it once or twice in the 2-3 months of recovery. The plant is now back to its beautiful green color and even has new growth. All of the other  plants that were placed in the window have also made a recovery. Surprising the zebra plant has even sprouted new shoots. I will not make that mistake ever again. I had exposed them to to much sun to soon.

I would love to hear how your blog got its name.
