💇♀️Need some hair repair? Having kids and autoimmune issues caused some serious hair loss for me and if you've ever had great hair that turned meh, then you know how tough it can be 😢 🌿Rosemary oil is well known to stimulate the scalp to support hair growth and it also prevents dandruff! 🌿Melaleuca oil nourishes your roots and helps your hair be healthy by unclogging hair follicles so conditions are optimal for regrowth. As a licensed Cosmetologist I'll tell you that hair loss is a common issue and using these oils can be such an easy way to reset your scalp and get things in balance! 🔅WHAT I DO: Add 10 drops of each oil into your shampoo bottle. Shake it up to make sure it's fully incorporated. Everytime you shampoo your hair give yourself a good 2 minute scalp massage then rinse and condition as normal. 🕷PRO TIP: These oils also prevent LICE so add them to your kids shampoo to keep those little bugs out of the hair!

If you watched our Real Food Kitchen show last night you saw how much I love LOYD teas @loydteabarbados
to create an Iced Tea alternative to juice, giving my family the rich antioxidant benefits of green & fruit teas along with amazing flavour without the abundance of sugar found in fruit juices and sodas! For those who have trouble drinking adequate amounts of water daily, this is a fun way to add flavour and goodness; 1 teabag to 1 cup seems to do the trick! I had a hard time choosing which one I'd use for our recipe but Forest Fruits came out on top as it spent so fruity and good I knew Noi would enjoy it! It makes so much sense to invest in something I can use in multiple ways, saving me money and its good for me too!! Grab a box today and begin to explore the possibilities!! Catch the show on our Facebook page if you missed it! #sogood #kidfriendly #flavouredwater #economical #healthy #controlyoursugar #tothebestyou
Making the Holidays Better for Kids
takes some effort, but can be very rewarding to everyone involved.
Rachel Ehmke writes—It’s easy for children to be smitten with the magic of the holidays. Fun presents. Extra sweets. A vacation from school—there’s a lot to like. But with the freedom and excess of the season, sometimes kids can get a little carried away. For most families, there will be a point when the kids get overtired and cranky, or greedy about presents, or would rather play a video game than talk to Grandma.
Here is the first of four posts to give solid tips how to keep kids happy and ready to enjoy whatever the season brings...and you too!
Let children help out:
There is a lot of extra work to do around the holidays — putting up decorations, cooking big dinners, throwing parties. The Martha Stewart in all of us can take over, but it’s important to take a step back and make sure our kids are included, too.
Children can help set the table, decorate the house, and wrap presents. If they’re too young to wrap, they can help by holding down the paper or getting the tape ready — there’s always something kids can do. And at holiday time, the preparations are often as fun and as meaningful as the end product. Plus, this way kids won’t feel left out — or be glued to the iPad for hours.

I brought a stray kitten home! He had fleas & worms but he's all better now. His name is Kirby and he's in my new video! He helps me open some Barbie Club Chelsea dolls that I got from @ilovedirtcheap.
I’m not one to break the traditional Thanksgiving desert mold (pumpkin pie or bust), but I have added pumpkin pie ice cream to the menu and I’m never looking back. This no-churn version from @theviewfromgreatisland
is👍😍👌🙌👏. The kids helped me make it and taste test it. Grab the 🍦 recipe and my other turkey day must have recipe (hint: it’s not turkey) in the link in my bio.
🍌 Due to their high potassium content, bananas are also great for strengthening your child’s bones. The potassium neutralizes the sodium that may be present in your child’s diet and thereby makes your child’s bones strong. The calcium that is lost during urination can be supplemented by a banana.
🍌 Debido a su alto contenido de potasio, los plátanos también son excelentes para fortalecer los huesos de su hijo. El potasio neutraliza el sodio y por lo tanto fortalece los huesos de su hijo. El calcio que se pierde durante la micción se puede complementar con un plátano.
There’s something very special about that first snowfall of the season. Yeah, it is a pain in the butt… slippery conditions, cancellations, shoveling, etc. However, when you wake up to a world blanketed by snow, your house has a different sort of glow, the hot chocolate is more appealing than ever, the coffee or tea tastes better than ever, the house always smells of freshly baked treats, and the couch feels extra cozy! Snow brings comfort and warmth inside, regardless of how cold and snowy it is outside.
Today, enjoy it! Watch a movie, roast some veggies, make some applesauce, catch up on cleaning, brew yourself an extra cup of coffee, find comfort… BUT, just make sure you balance out this comfort with some exercise!!!

We are enjoying every minute of our two hour snow delay here in Connecticut. Hard to believe it full on looks like winter and it is mid-November. Talk about rushing the holiday season, Mother Nature! For this week's Friday fun I am sharing a few ideas in my stories to get the kids involved with the planning and preparation for Thanksgiving. The details for this fun place holder is up right now (and will be added to the Friday Fun highlights for later viewing) and more ideas will be added throughout the day and over the weekend. Happy Friday and I hope it is a cozy weekend! #SCKfridayfun #kidscrafts
