• Top 10 Uses of Tea Tree Oil

    tea tree oil

    Tea Tree Oil has been one of those products that I hear so much about; how amazing it is, that you can use it for just about anything, that it is good for you, and so on. But to be totally honest, it completely intimidates me. How can one product be an answer to everything? Well let me tell you, it can.

    I received a bottle of 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil from Apothecary Extracts, to help me over come this intimidation. Along with the bottle, I got an e-book with recipes for 53 everyday uses of Tea Tree Oil. I was completely overwhelmed, there are a ton of uses for this product. Things that I have never ever thought to use this for, there are recipes for. After taking a much needed breath, and literally walked away from all the information, I was able to get it in my head that this was an amazing product.

  • Sunday Breakfast

    photo (14)

    For us, Sunday means lazy family pajama day. What is better then a lazy family pajama day? Starting that day with French Toast, of coarse. This is a go to staple in my house, super easy to make and pretty hard to mess up. Today, we did a pretty straight forward French Toast, but on special occasions I will coat them in corn flakes before putting them on the griddle. Hope that you are a having a fantastic  Sunday as well.

    PS- Tomorrow is another Monday Morning MakeUp Linky Party!!! I am hoping that you all pop by and post something of yours!
