Do You Etsy?

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. A break was necessary as I was finishing up the last couple weeks of school (graduated Summa Cum Laude, bitches!!) and just really wanted to take time to find direction.

And direction is exactly what I found.

Since leaving Daydream Mom last November, not only did I obtain my much-desired degree in Early Childhood Education, but I moved to a new neighborhood, had a 4 month platonic-yet-highly-sexualized fling with a virtual love interest, hired a life coach, and found my purpose in life.

I’ve also started to work on a couple Etsy shoppes I have — Like My Body (natural, handmade body care products infused with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade doTERRA essential oils) and 2020Vision Vintage (freaking awesome vintage and antique finds)!

As you can see, I have a TON of interests, which is why Daydream Mom was born in the first place. It’s a way to catalog my ADD and make it functionable.

Anyway… So yes.. To add ONE MORE THING to my ever-growing list of ventures, I am in Life Coach training as well. I have my first legitimate, registered business — which essentially ALL my business are umbrella’d under, so to speak. Your Powers Defined, LLC is my primary business where I help spiritual women identify their soul’s purpose. You’d be surprised how much clarity and direction you’ll obtain from hiring a coach.

So that’s about it! Busy busy busy! AND I’m a mom on top off allll of that.

It may sound like A LOT going on to the typical person, but I’ve always thought of myself as a mogul in training because I was born to be an entrepreneur and I’m always going to be a Jill of all trades, and I can master a few too.

I’m sure this will not be the last Daydream Mom post as I am intent on getting this blog off life support.

Stay tuned ūüėÄ



Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, Let’s Stay Healthy, and Beat the Flu

I’m a huge advocate for being and staying healthy the natural, holistic way. I never get a flu shot, and fortunately have only had the flu maybe once in my adult life. The reason I don’t do vaccines is because they’re full of crazy chemicals that alter our natural chemistry. I say “Pick¬†Your Poison” —¬†and being the sugar-holic¬†I am what more do I need toxifying my body.

There are very EASY AND AFFORDABLE ways to stay healthy throughout the impending flu season.

A Cure for Heebie Jeebies: I HEART Essential Oils

I used to work for The Body Shop back in¬†the day.¬†Not A body shop. THEEEE Body Shop. You know…. The people who invented body butter! Remember when this was their logo?


Ya that’s how long ago I worked there.

I’m not gonna lie; working for them was by far one of my all-time favorite jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Did I put enough exclamations? I think you get the gist of just how much I loved that job). Well, I left there after two years because the company was making some changes after the founder, Dame Anita Roddick passed from a complication during surgery. Very sad story. I remember when we got the phone call at our downtown Union Station store that Anita had passed. We were heartbroken. And although I had never met her in person, I knew I’d miss her presence guiding the company.

She loved that company very much! It was her passion.


It was MY passion!! Everyday I got to educate people on the benefits of using natural ingredients, fair-trade, going green, moisturizing, exfoliating, cleansing, and all things related to nurturing the body.¬†TBS also carries make-up so I’d get to use a willing customer’s face as my canvas which I absolutely loved because I’m an artist at heart.

*sigh*…. the memories.

The point in¬†getting all sentimental was to say working for TBS was the first time I’d heard of essential oils.

Funny story: I walked into TBS on my 24th birthday and bought my first essential oil — lavender. I remember walking out of the store and saying to my mother “I’m going to work there.” One month later I was on the payroll!

Ever since that day I’ve been hooked on essential oils!!! Love love love them! They have so many benefits and are wonderful alternatives to Western medicine.

I plan on blogging A LOT more about essential oils and will probably dedicate 1 day a week to introducing a new oil.

With that said, today’s oil is Oregano.


I busted out the Oregano oil today because I was feeling like I was coming down with the heebie¬†jeebies. Oregano is very potent. It’s an anti- EVERYTHING¬†agent. Antibacterial. Antifungal. Anti-inflammatory. Antioxidant. Anti-viral. It aids in digestion. It’s just one of those all around do the damn job oils!!

I simply dropped two drops in my bottle of water and got to sipping.

There are 3 ways you can use essential oils. If they’re a decent grade. Like doTERRA¬†essential oils. They can be used topically, orally, or aromatically. I’ll touch on all those topics later on.

So yea, tomorrow when I awake I should feel a bit more like myself. All thanks to Oregano essential oil.

Nigh Nigh…

Do you use essential oils? Do you prefer one brand over another or have a favorite oil? Mine’s lavender!!! Could you tell?
