Why I Haven’t Posted In Over A Month

Okay, I know this is what you all really want to know about, but I am saving it for an entirely different blog post. Sorry peeps, but it will be here soon.

I’m not going to leave you entirely hanging though, I will say that the main reason is because it became way too much and I was losing sight of my goals and what I wanted out of it.

We’ve Been Painting!!

So honestly, the entire month of May was spent painting so you all didn’t miss too much excitement! Cinco De Mayo weekend we decided to paint the house and from there we did! We have finished everything besides behind our washer/dryer and we still need to lay down the tile in the bathrooms but that’s IT!

Chad and I both can’t wait to be completely done. We seriously didn’t have any fun for weeks and now we’re itching to enjoy the island.

Here are some before and after pictures:

BEFORE! It may not look that bad of a color but whoever painted did a horrible job and it was actually just not that pretty of a color in person.

AFTER! We used Behr White Metal throughout the house with a couple of accent walls 🙂

I Became A Scentsy Consultant!

I made the plunge and decided to become a Scentsy Consultant! If you’re not familiar with Scentsy, it’s a company that sells AMAZING wax bars for warmers and more!

What sets Scentsy apart from the wax bars from Target/Walmart/other businesses is that the scent actually lasts. I like my house to smell amazing so I decided to make some money from a business I believe in.

If you want to check out what Scentsy is all about and what they have to offer, here is the link to my website: https://daniellecrook.scentsy.us

My June Read

The month of June I read Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham! For those of you who don’t know who this is, it’s Lorelai Gilmore from Gilmore Girls!

I recently started re-watching the show after years so I was interested in learning more behind the scenes of the show! It’s actually a pretty good book, I have been pleasantly surprised.

I Am Switching To All-Natural & Organic Beauty Products

A couple of weeks ago I woke up one day and decided that I wanted to switch to all-natural and organic beauty products after realizing how terrible my current products are for my skin.

Something just clicked where it made complete sense to get rid all of my toxic products and switch to natural and organic products.

These toxic products are linked to cancer, hormonal defects, aging and more.

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and it absorbs everything we put on it.

To me, it’s like people who eat extremely clean diets. They are giving their bodies the nutrients it needs knowing that it costs a little more, but they are willing to pay the price because that’s what’s best for their body.

I see it the same way for my skin now. Plus, a lot of the toxic companies test on animals and a majority, if not all, of the all-natural and organic companies that I found do not test on animals.

I received a huge amount of requests when I told everyone I was switching to all-natural & organic products to share the information I find so I’ll be writing a blog post in the future of a round up of all-natural and organic companies I will be switching to so keep a look out!

Some of my current natural and organic beauty products! (Jack Black Lip Balm for photo aesthetic :P)

I FINALLY (but really this time) Have A Job!!!

After living in Hawaii for over a year now, I can confidently and proudly say that I have a full-time paid position that is NOT temporary. SUCH a relief!

What’s Coming Up In The Next Months . . .

OUR TRIP TO THE BIG ISLAND IN JULY!

Whoop Whoop! We haven’t visited any of the other Hawaiian islands so we can’t wait to just be on vacay and enjoy ourselves exploring the island!

GOING BACK TO VIRGINIA IN DECEMBER!

We finally purchased our tickets to VA for Christmas and to say I am excited is an understatement. I haven’t seen my friends and most of my family in over a year now and it’s killing me.

I already know the places I’ll be eating at and I can’t wait to just spend time with everyone and do some things I regret not taking advantage of while living so close to DC!

And of course, more blog posts 🙂

 


Alright you guys, I have to end this post already! I’m sorry I left you all hanging without a word but it was much needed! Remember, keep an eye out for my blog posts on why I took a break from blogging and the all-natural & organic beauty products I’m switching to!
