Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. -Coco Chanel
Over the past few months we’ve been having little arguments here and there. Arguments about housework, arguments about nappy changes and sometimes, arguments about nothing in particular. All these little arguments, overtime, were accumulating into obstacles between the two of us. We realised that the arguments were being fuelled by something in the background that we hadn’t brought to light or spoken about. Once it was all out in the open, we saw that the distance between us both psychically and metaphorically started becoming less and less. We were joking around again, being affectionate and just enjoyed being together again. We realised that we have to keep in check and ensure we are putting things in place to stay connected because if we don’t, one day we may not recognise each other and it’ll be a longer and bigger obstacle to overcome. #loveultimately #podcast #episode #16 #live #marriage #family #argument #conversation #debtfreecommunity #debtfreecommunityaustralia #sahm #spouse #husband #wife #obstacle #connect #brisbane

The biggest change always happens in the mind and heart. I’m thankful that God has has given me a community of women to help me overcome! I could care less about the physical side of this experience. (Even tho it’s definitely an added bonus to feel AND look good)! If you are having a hard time starting or keeping up with the goals you have let’s work together. I want to encourage you. You are not alone. Become your best you. Make choices today that reflect what you want out of life! JUST DO IT
Meet my dear friend, Shannon and check out her AWESOME progress. We’re on a journey together.
She shared her story with me and it’s changed my life so I am sharing it with you.
“At the end of these 10 days, I was hooked.
I felt better
I slept better
I had no more momma brain fog
It’s like the Ketones were a switch that had been waiting to be flipped all this time. .
I think to myself, if THIS is what can be done in 10
Days, imagine a month, a year, a lifetime!
Not sure why I fought it for so long, but I’m so glad I’ve now allowed myself to have an open mind.”
I decided to join her and like her, I saw some crazy changes in my focus, my sleep, my energy levels and I too, started to see weight loss. Something I hadn’t experienced in a year and a half, trying program after program. .
It was the change I needed so that I could better my health. Are you ready to join us?
At some point you have to let go of all the negative in your life an focus on the positive. Forget what people think and be comfortable with yourself. 💜 #putyourselffirst
For another birthday princess. 🐝
Pocotó pocotó pocotó... Passando na sua telinha pra falar q a mamãe fez vários Stores da minha rotina hoje! 💓🦄🦄
Importância da Rotina (revista crescer) : .
“A partir do primeiro ano de vida, a criança já pode ter a agenda mais estruturada, digamos assim. Tanto as que já vão ao berçário quanto as que ficam em casa precisam de uma sequência de eventos – horário para acordar, brincar, tomar banho, fazer as refeições, dormir, etc. “A rotina, nessa fase, embora mais maleável, também funciona como um porto seguro frente a tantos desafios novos (andar, falar, escalar...)”, resume Vera. Afinal, cada dia traz uma diferente conquista, e saber, pelo menos um pouco, o que vem a seguir, vai deixar o seu filho mais confiante e feliz.”

Copaiba...its basically a Unicorn 🦄🦄. It is what they call a "driver" oil...meaning it magnifies the properties of other oils. It has so many uses and we use this oil literally every single day, it is a staple in almost all of my roller blends. It is great for skin, promoting wellness, relaxation & more importantly them baby gums 👶.
All the ways we use it in our house:
+Soothing teething baby gums by rubbing directly on the gum line or mixing with lavender and rubbing along the jawline.
+Bite the inside of your mouth like me???...yup I put this right on there.
+I add a drop to my Ningxia for some added immune support.
+I'm obsessed with Stress Away...guess whats a key component in that Blend...yep Copaiba. Copaiba is a relative of the cannibas plant and incredibly amazing for emotional support + unwinding.
+Skin care...I apply directly to fine lines, scars and blemishes...the healing power of this oil is amazing. +In my "head on" roller along with Peppermint and Lavender for all the tension relief...or lets be honest, a few too many adult beverages.
+In my "glow stick" roller along with Lavender + Frankincense topped with Witch Hazel and Jojoba oil for those problem areas on my skin.
+In my post workout blend...rubbed right into any of those achy spots along with Panaway, Peppermint + Frankincense.
+Last but not least....my Calm roller. For me and my babes, all the keep calm vibes one could as for ✌️
I used to buy harsh acne treatments for my daughter to clear her skin😜, and it never really seemed to help very much not to mention how many chemicals she was putting into her body by using them. This month I got to buy Young Livings non-toxic acne treatment with salicylic acid derived from wintergreen essential oil for the first time. GAME CHANGER!😍 Not only did her acne clear up within a few days of use, but as a mom it makes me so happy to know I am not harming her health by slathering her in chemicals and toxins that other products carry. If you are ready to ditch and switch to all natural essential oils and products, message me today, it is never too late to better your health!🌿
The things that NO MOMMY wants to admit... "I hate waking up in the morning" ☀️
"I pray for bedtime to come faster" 😴
"I'll just let them watch one more episode on Netflix" 🖥
"This is my second trip to Starbucks today" ☕️
"I need to order something else from Amazon to make my stressful life easier" 🛍
"Maybe these Oreos will help me relax" 🍪
"No one understands what having "x amount of kids" under "x amount of age" is like. They can't judge me. I can't help how stressed out I am" 👶🏻👦🏼
"I just need to workout. I don't need supplements"🏋🏼 "My friends tried that and they said it didn't work so I'm sure it's a scam". 🚫 ✋🏼✋🏼✋🏼STOP. Just press pause. 💗 You don't have to live like this anymore! I get it.... Your husband will lose his lid if you order one more thing that is a "waste of money". But WHAT IF, this is the Lord's answer for your family. WHAT IF, it makes you feel human again and puts dollars of provision in your bank account that not only pay for groceries but start paying for your MORTGAGE.
I'm here to tell you there is no "what if". The answer is yes. And just for YOU, tired mama.... 😘 I have a discount. Message me today, and I'll be your friend.

It’s school supply shopping time! & that got me thinking, what are some of your favorite back to school teacher gift ideas?
I love to get our teachers a few small gifts throughout the year to show my appreciation for their love and dedication to teaching my babes!
Our town days are jam packed with stops at the feed store, Costco, Safeway, the Bank, Napa, Les Schwab, my least favorite store Walmart, the Gas Station, the Appliance Service Department, oh yeah we had lunch in there somewhere!😋 We took some time for a nice lunch filled with halibut tacos🐟 🌮for me and a burrito🌯 supreme for Jess!
We thought, heck yeah let's have a Margarita! We didn't know that you got a small pitcher along with your drink. So we both ended up with about 4 👀🍹🍹🍹🍹margaritas each!
You guys, I had to drink them. The waiter said, you can do it, I have faith in you. I knew that I was in trouble, I'm not a big drinker. I just kept telling myself, you can do it, don't be a big baby. Well, I drank all four of those drinks and it only took me 1 1/2 hours 😂!

Energy | This duo is 🙌🏼
A couple drops each in my diffuser today to boost my energy.
Friends this prayers and some caffeine cause I’m chasing after three boys.
My boys need an ever present Mama from (before) sunup to all through the night.
This time last year I learned diffusing pure oils can not only purify the air and make my home smell yummy buuuut they can actually give me energy just by diffusing them?! What?! No way I thought.
I bought my premium starter kit for many reasons but the biggest one? Join a community of people who were all in their journey to health and wellness. I wanted to learn with them. I was a skeptic. I totally was. But then I realized the candles I loved so much were releasing toxins into my home that my babies were breathing in that was enough for me to ditch them and swap them for pure oils that I could use instead of candles.
First ditch and switch win!
Since Joining my oily team I’ve learned so much and continue to do so!
If you’ve ever just wondered what the big deal is? It’s more than oils. It’s a lifestyle of health and wellness. That’s the community I joined! And we are alllll learning together!
Friends we are here to cheer you on in your journey! Just dipping your toe in or diving headfirst in!
Know we are here to help! I’m apart of THREE wellness communities all one BIG family in Young Living. ALL headed towards one goal. Health, Wellness and Abundance!
Want to dip your toe in or dive in? DM me or leave a comment below!
First time at Chuck E. Cheese was a success!!
Reason 501 why I love being my own boss! Today, I got to take my 3 kiddos to lunch, after our oldest got her hair done. I love seeing them interact, and I love that she's teaching them fun games that her uncle has taught her over the years.
P.S. Her hair is awesome, @micheledesignerofhair
and if you're local to Kingsburg, go check out the new restaurant inside the Village Mall. Country Corner (I think it's called). #familytime #lovemykiddos #mompreneur #lularoeretailer #wahm #sahm
You guys, my girlfriend captured this yesterday. And while it’s not really an “outfit” shot, I feel like it perfectly captured me in this moment. My baby anxiously awaiting a ride, my other baby waiting to come out, and me loving my favorite thing on the planet right now, this gigantic stainless mug recommended to me through @thebuyguide.
Life is not always pretty, but there are some pretty awesome moments. Thanks for capturing this one, @k1machado. #styledbymrsdupont #ootd #disneyland #disney #shopsmall #35weeks #pregnancy
