I Tried To Quit Plexus

I stopped taking my Plexus supplements.

No more "pink drink", no more probiotic, no more BioCleanse, no more multivitamin, protein powder...nada.


Ok, so maybe that title is a little dramatic.

I didn't try to quit, it just kind of happened!

I slowly ran out of a supplement or two, and life just got busy and I didn't think I'd miss them that much. So I just let them all run out.

I was aware that I should really get some more, but I tried to convince myself that Plexus supplements didn't really make that much difference.

And you know what happened?

I started feeling like crap again.

I felt like I did before I found Plexus - headaches, tiredness, upset stomach and irregular BMs, not sleeping as well, more breakouts, and more irritability. I was starting to wonder what was going on with me when I thought, "when was the last time I drank my Slim? Or took my BioCleanse and Probio5?!" 

And then it was a lightbulb moment for me.

The fact that my body was having such a hard time made me realize just how much my supplements were doing for me! My Plexus supplements were working, and I gave up on them!*

You see, I've been on this journey of seeking increased health and happiness for awhile now. From August 2016 - August 2017, my husband was deployed overseas. To briefly sum up that year, it was a struggle to keep up with my physical and mental health. I went into survival mode, and I've been digging hard to come back out of it. In January of 2018, my husband and I had a talk and he made me realize that I wasn't myself. I knew I needed to make some changes to be better for myself, for my husband, and for my kids.

So I've been eating more clean, setting more goals for myself, focusing more on self-care, working out regularly, finding personal development books to read, basically anything to improve my overall well-being. I've been documenting it along the way mainly on Instagram (for some reason that felt like a safe place to start!), but now I feel like I need to share elsewhere, too.


It's been way too important for my health and happiness!

I was active in my Plexus business for 2 years and then I took a break. I was in that pivotal time where I was learning about myself and deciding what I wanted out of life, for me. Sometimes you just need to take a break, or take a step back to gain some perspective. I spent a lot of time thinking and praying and just wondering.

And I've made the decision to RE-LAUNCH my Plexus business!

I just can't live without my health and happiness company! Health and happiness is literally my exact journey right now, and I realized just how much these supplements do for me! They make me feel so great - which is the most lackluster adjective EVER to explain these products - but I don't think the word exists to describe the feeling!

I keep sharing my journey on Instagram because I have wanted other people to realize the power of putting your health and happiness FIRST! That can feel very challenging when we seem to be pulled in so many different directions in our lives! But you have to make yourself a priority!! At first, it kind of feels selfish, but once you start seeing how much better you feel, you suddenly understand it is SO. WORTH IT!!

Ever heard people say, "you'll never regret spending money on traveling!"?

I feel like the same applies to your health! You'll never regret spending money on your health! Supplementation is preventative healthcare! And when you feel healthy, you feel HAPPY!!

I have made a lot of positive changes over the last few months, and I'm focused on my Plexus supplements, my workouts (more on this later!), my diet (I have SO much to share about this!!), and my mental health (we neeeeeed to talk about this more!). I'm feeling pretty proud of my progress so far! Health and happiness is a journey, not a destination, so I'm even more focused on how I can make these permanent lifestyle changes. Mental health is so so so so important, and I feel like my mind is in a lot better place than it was this time last year. I'm so glad that I jumped up and decided to do something about my own state of mind and my physical well-being!

I'm so excited to continue to share about my health and happiness journey with you all!!

And get ready for my Plexus Re-launch SALE!! You can't have a Grand Re-Opening without a good sale - coming SOON!!

DIY Produce Rack

I have seen some cool ideas on Pinterest for ways to store fresh fruits and veggies using fun buckets or storage bins that are anchored to the wall. I think that would be a fun way to store food in a kitchen where counter space is limited.
Just like my kitchen.
I was in Ross the other day - a store very similar to TJMaxx - when I had a light bulb moment when I laid my eyes on this:

A simple hanging shower caddy.
I immediately thought of all those pins of wall produce storage ideas, so I snatched the shower caddy for a mere $6.99!

And this is what I made!

So here is what you'll need:
My kitchen is also short on wall space, so I was assuming I'd either have to hang it someplace weird, or hang it on the end of my cabinets.
So I picked up a few of these command hooks:
One pretty one for the top, and two smaller ones for extra support at the bottom, and also to keep it from swinging. Be sure to pay attention to how many pounds the hooks can hold - produce can get pretty heavy, so…

The Must-Have Hair Product: Aquage Uplifting Foam

I have been on the hunt for this supposed liquid (well, foam) magic for awhile now - Aquage Uplifting Foam. I must give credit where credit is due - I first heard of this exclusive hair product from The Small Things Blog. Kate has a phenomenal blog full of informative videos showing how to style hair, not to mention her cute outfits she blogs about, too! Please, please be sure to spend some time on her blog - it has been so helpful for me; I'm sure you will all love it, too!

Anyway, I had to look up online where to find it locally because it is not sold in all salons. I went to Aquage's website to look up where I could find it here.

I was so excited to try it! I started by towel drying my just washed hair, and making little parts all over my head and spraying the Aquage in it. Then I rubbed it in a little, and then blow dried my hair. For a detailed video, check out Kate's video here. This video is how I learned to do it! :)

After my hair was dry, I could already tell ther…

The MamaRoo Review

Ever wondered if the MamaRoo baby swing is worth the money?

Here is my review, and hopefully after reading this, you will be able to decide if it's a good purchase for your family!
As a first-time mom, I had a lot on my shopping list for our baby girl. My goal was to search for good deals on quality products. We had planned on me being a stay-at-home mom, so we tried to be frugal to keep that goal a reality. At the same time, however, we had been trying to get pregnant for 4 years, and we had been dreaming of our little Ava Mckenzie for more like 5 or 6 years. So when we found out I was finally pregnant, we couldn't wait to spoil her!
I had seen the MamaRoo before and I thought it was a brilliant concept for a swing. Different motions and speed options made so much sense to me. My impulsive brain said, "I want it!", while my practical brain said, "It costs too much!".
I had been doing a really good job at not buying the most over-the-top things for my baby,…
