Happy Sunday to you all! Instead of apologize for being gone for 2…almost 3 months…I’ll just say I’ve enjoyed my time away from blogging. I love to write and share my life but I also got caught in the busy season of work and life and decided to step away and soak it up. I’ll stop in every once in a while when I feel to. Thanks for reading!

This weekend has seen the laziest of me. I have literally propped my feet up and laid around all weekend. And I’m totally fine with it.

I’ve contemplated starting a DIY project this weekend. But then… ehh why push it right? Eyeing this DIY wine holder for when I have some energy to get off the couch.

After being off birth control for a year (not for pregnancy purposes FYI), my hormones have been crazy. Which why wouldn’t they being as I was pumping my body full of synthetic hormones, totally natural right? I’m on a quest to balance my hormones. Wellness Mama had some amazing tips and so I hit up Virginia’s Health Foods and stocked up on some goodies:

My new daily regimen:


From the top left clockwise:

Natural Calm // Magnesium & Calcium help with hormonal imbalance and stress relief

Maca Powder // Boosts Hormone Production & Helps with PMS & Skin

Red Raspberry Tea // Reduces PMS & Cramps & uterine health

Evening Primrose // Regulates Hormones & Helps with Migraines

Every Woman New Chapter Organic Immune and Hormone Support Vitamin // <pretty much explains it all in the title ha

Also for my pregnant friends, I’ve heard Red Raspberry Tea is also amazing for pregnancy and birthing.
