The Oxygen Bomb: Do You Wanna Kick Toxins in the Arse?

by , in

 Organic Planner gives us a great idea 
to remove toxins from home. Our home
 is where we should be able to relax 
and feel comfortable. Not worry about toxins.
Aloe Vera does just that-remove toxins
from the air.

πŸ˜‰ I offer Forever aloe based products, now 
take it a step further. Add aloe vera plants 
to your home and let them grow! 
Having an aloe vera plant on had will be 
a nice perk if you get a burn like I did on my foot.
It played a huge role in my healing 
I would break it open and put the aloe inside 
directly on my burn. 
Does anyone have an aloe plant or 
more growing in your home?

Ally's story of being bullied, almost committing suicide, to being on the road of healing and  realizing how wonderful she is.

Sadly those who bullied Ally and still would like to destroy her life,
they can only destroy their own with their hate and awefulness toward
people like Ally who they choose to bully.

Lauren has now joined us here at Home at Hearth, sharing her love and gift for helping women enhance their beauty with Younique.

Make up is not a mask. Make up is an art. It's an expression, it's a release, and for many women it's the one thing they do everyday (or every chance they get) for them 
I am here to not just show this make up I fell in love with but to help people feel beautiful. I have a quiz you can take if you need a color match for foundation, and I am a message away 24-7 if you have any questions at all.

Beautifying Your Landscaping in Winter (Update)

by , in

Beautifying Your Landscaping in Winter
by Alek Sabin

 I've updated 'Beautifying Your Landscaping in Winter
to correct the issue with the words being 
cut off on the right hand side. My apologies

People have a tendency to neglect their landscaping once the snow begins
to fall and winter really rolls around, even if they have absolutely beautiful yards
during the rest of the year. However, you don’t need to let your landscaping fall
o scraps during the winter months. There are plenty of ways that you can make
your yard a beautiful place to spend time, and improve your curb appeal,
during winter. Here are some tips on how to beautify your landscaping in winter...

Use splashes of color

One particular way that you can bring a dash of personality to the whitewash
that snow puts over your yard is to add large blocks of brighter colors around
your yard. A bright red, blue, or yellow is going to pop in a snowy yard,
so incorporating those bright colors into a fence or a shed adds a visually
dynamic layer of texture on your yard’s landscaping that cannot be understated.
Whenever brainstorming ideas you want to try to landscape your yard in winter,
always be thinking of ways that you can bring color into the picture
(some of the ideas below can help you accomplish this, as well).

Get winter flowers

Usually, people just let their flowerbeds go once winter comes in. Most flowers
aren’t going to blossom in the winter, so what’s even the point of trying, right?
Well, there are actually several different types of flowers that can thrive in a winter setting.
Candytuft and calendula are both types of flowers that will survive in the snowy cold.
While candytuft is more white, it adds a natural boon to your yard’s aesthetic,
but the vibrant colors of calendula can bring a splash of saturation to your landscaping.

Add lighting touches

Lights are always a lovely way to decorate your backyard. Using lanterns and
globe lights helps create an aesthetically pleasing look in your yard that makes i
t feel like a sanctuary. In the winter, though, this is even more true, as a coat of
snow helps reflect light in a way that feels warm and serene, no matter how
cold it is outside. If you really want to take it to the next level,
then you can even make your lanterns to use as backyard lighting.

Decorate for the holidays

There are tons of holidays during the winter. That’s the only reason some
people even enjoy the winter season. Well, you can use holidays like
Christmas or New Year’s to decorate your yard in a way that brings
some seasonal cheer to your property (this is also another great way
to approach putting lights up in your yard, as this is
very common practice for the holidays).

Keep your fence brushed off

While you want to make sure that your landscaping has a natural feeling
during the winter, you also don’t want it to feel like you’ve neglected your
yard and nature has completely taken over. One way that this can happen
is if you let snow build up on your fence, or other amenities in your yard, s
uch as pergolas and arbors. Not only does this look bad, but it actually
puts a lot of pressure on your fence, and can cause it to suffer significantly
more wear-and-tear during the winter than it otherwise would. If nothing else,
at least make sure that you get outside to brush the snow off of important
structures in your backyard.

Don’t forget to make it practical

Yard maintenance during the winter isn’t for merely aesthetic purposes,
but also to make your yard a place that you can actually be in during
the winter months. For this reason, you need to think about how your
landscaping can make your yard a little more practical. This includes
things like scraping and salting your walkways, or cleaning
up fallen ranches that come down after a heavy snowfall.
These are essentials to make your landscaping usable during the winter.
As a matter of fact, these would be practically be requirements
if you were a landlord, so why wouldn’t you want to treat your own
property that way?

Self-Sufficiency Pt 2: What If There is a Missile Attack

by , in

I haven't given much thought about a missile attack or warning of one until yesterday when there was a false missile attack in Hawaii.

I'm thinking of it now and decided to do a video on it before I proceed with some of the other things I wanted to share. 

I'd like to hear your thoughts. I value your input.

It's Monday and it's cold!

I'm running for my coffee and away from this cold, minus the pink tennis shoes lol
My phone says -4 degrees although it's usually off some. Cold enough right! 

I've started a series on being 'Self-Sufficient'.
I'll be adding more today. If you haven't had a chance to check it out please do.
Here's a link to the page for your ease of watching.

Today, in light of the 'Missile Terror' in Hawaii, I'm going to cover what to do in a missle attack a bit.
I really would love your input if you experience the missile warning or simply have some good information to add.

Self-Sufficiency 1

by , in
We all need the ability to adapt to situations that arise. With the increase of man-made and natural disasters we all need to seriously consider preparing now, having supplies, knowing how to preserve foods, having water supplies, etc
The bottom life is 'preparedness' is not so you can survive, rather so you can thrive and not be walking around in fear when SHTF.

Have a watch and let me know your thoughts.

You Don't Pay Love Back; You Pay It Forward

by , in

Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight. ...  Lily Hardy Hammond wrote, "You don't pay love back; you pay it forward."

I'm paying it forward for my friend Lauren with Ren's Reflections.
Lauren is a wonderful entrepreneur with a spirit of giving and sharing.
She loves showing women how to be their best and unashamedly so!!

Lauren's emphasis is teaching you how to put on your make up with Younique products. 

I don't know about you but it's unimaginable to go to the store and scour the shelves for hours or even go to high end stores that sell pricey make up. You know the places that help you find a color or two and sell you a whole package of everything while you write a check upwards of a few $100 dollars. 

You get home and in the light of your bedroom or bathroom and wonder as you put it on 'why the hell you spent all that money'! And unless your going back to pay for more advice on how to put it on again, you may throw it in the drawer and say 'Screw it'!

Now Lauren will show you every step of the way. Everything from your skin type, color and how to put on your Younique. She's available by facebook messenger and creates video to demonstrate just how to use what you have.
Now how cool is this!!

Lauren's doing a party for a friend and she's

Time to Get Squeaky Clean With Homemade Dog Suds

by , in

Good Morning

I'm enjoying my coffee and one of the last warm days before arctic temps return here. I'm still battling a darn cold but 
it's going to be a good day to give the dogs a bath before it gets cold out and they love to go outside. 
I make a shampoo for them that really helps with their dry skin. 
The recipe is as follows:

Rosemary is very moisturizing for their skin and that's why I choose to use it in their shampoo.  My two shelties, Rusty and Dusty are going on 4 years old and have dry, flaky skin. I don't bath them more than once a month and in winter it can be longer due to the cold and they like to go outside a lot.

I bring three cups of water to a boil and add a sprig of Rosemary to it, let it cool and pour into a bottle I can seal with a lid.
If you don't grow your own Rosemary, you can probably find it at your local health food store.
You could also use 3-4 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil if that is what you have.

Next I add a heaping tablespoon of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 5 tablespoons of Bronners Mild Baby Shampoo and 3-4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and mix or shake well. The mixture will be nice and creamy.

Give it a try and see if it doesn't make a big difference with your dog or dogs.
Mine feel nice and soft, less itching and they smell good too.

I'd appreciate hearing if you make the shampoo and how it works for you.
And please do share!
I've include a link to the pdf if you would like to download this at the bottom of this post.

I've added links below to where you can purchase the items I use.
The Link I am adding for the Lavender Essential oil is one I sell from Forever Living right here on the site.
