Easy tips for a relationship refresh (and a Fiera Giveaway!)

Today’s post is sponsored by Fiera, but my love for their product is all my own!

What do you do when your relationship has gone stale

Do you try to find creative ways to rekindle the spark that may have dwindled down to an ember? 

Sometimes, you just have to date each other again and go back to moments that reminds you why you fell in love in the first place! 



Women: Everyday Heroes

Many thanks to memBrain for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to share my hero!



I am blessed.  I have been so fortunate to know so many amazing, smart, strong, and passionate women.   How can I limit my hero to just ONE woman? I can't.  


I just can't.

Whether you cook with coconut oil yet or not, you’ve probably heard of it. This pure white oil has become a household name for the health-conscious, and it’s popping up in everything from stir-fry recipes to vegan fudge. Coconut oil is the “it” ingredient of the moment.

A lot of the buzz around coconut oil comes from its medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). This type of fat is rapidly metabolized in the liver so it’s immediately available as an energy source; it’s also easier to burn off and harder to store as fat. Some MCTs, like lauric acid, work to keep you healthy by eliminating disease-causing microbes and lowering inflammation. Don’t listen to the conventional wisdom advocating a low fat diet—just opt for high quality, healthy fats, like MCTs.
Of course, not all coconut oil is created equal—you’ll want to shop for organic, fair trade, and virgin options. Why? First, virgin coconut oil is the most minimally processed product you can buy. While refined oil comes from dried coconut meat that is bleached and chemically processed, virgin oil is extracted from fresh coconuts. Going organic also ensures the finished product won’t be contaminated by any pesticides or harmful additives. Finally, choose fair trade to ensure all the local farm workers were fairly compensated and ethically treated.

An easy way to make sure you’re getting only the highest quality coconut oil on the market? Try Nutiva’s version! For a limited time, Thrive Market is giving all a FREE jar of  Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. Claim your FREE gift today before they’re gone!



I use coconut oil in stir fries, sugar scrubs, hand made soaps, and for oil pulling!

Did I tell you that I just started a new job in January? I was working for a start up and it was taking its toll on me and the lack of benefits made the decision to look for another position crucial.  I am working just a few miles from home and I love it.  It's kicking my tail end BUT I am saving a ton of money on gas AND food.

Small changes to make to achieve health goals (+Free Vitamins)

It’s that time of year again – goals are excitedly made with the hope that not only will they be achieved but surpassed.  For most of us, the goal to get healthier is a top priority.  It’s definitely my goal, too.  Focusing on positive healthy habits is key. 

Making small changes can have big impact for overall wellness.   As women, our bodies have different health needs than men.
