DIY Essential Oil Shower Steamers

It’s no secret I’m a lover of bubble baths. I used to get giddy around the holidays just to see what new bath bombs Lush brought out and loved trying new products. Therefore, you can understand the convincing Ian had to do in order for me to move into an apartment – without a bathtub!  I went through a period of mourning, but have since adapted my “pamper night routine” to be shower-friendly.

While I no longer can soak beneath the multicolored foam of a Lush bath bomb, I can still enjoy uplifting scents while I shower. Sadly, these shower steamers don’t come covered in glitter or release flower petals, but they get the job done. When placed in your shower they gently fizz and dissolve as they release the scent of essential oils. They are the perfect addition to your daily routine, pamper night, or with the right oils – a natural remedy for a stuffy nose.

Veggie Cracker Bites Month in Review: January, 2018


On a sunny day you will find me in the fields. ✨ Growing up on a dairy farm in the countryside I spent a lot of time outside. After school my siblings and I would feed calves, head inside for dinner and a few hours of homework, then trek back down to the barn help with milking shifts. It didn’t matter if it was blazing hot in the middle of summer or frigid cold in the depth of winter, we were outside. ✨ Now that I’ve moved off the farm, life looks a lot different. Being a graphic designer requires sitting in front of a computer for hours on end, but my soul aches to be outside. Luckily, I’m able to schedule breaks throughout the day to step away from my computer screen and enjoy nature. This allows me to get some fresh air, reconnect with my creativity, and return to my work with fresh eyes. ✨ What do you do during the day to hit the refresh button?
Woke up with a pep in my step! I couldn’t believe it was already Thursday…until Ian kindly reminded me it is actually Wednesday. In an instant, I went from being gleeful to feeling like the cruel universe added a day to my week. To keep my spirits high, I chose to treat myself to a mid-day coffee break at @anodynecoffee. Double tap if coffee is the magical elixir that can turn your day around ☕️🙌💕
Easing into the work week after an incredible Packer win last night! My day is full of chai tea, calming Spotify playlists, and an afternoon walk to recenter and get my mind ready for a busy week.
Cozying up with the fall @magnolia journal issue while I wait for the rain showers to pass. 🌦
