The Top 5 Faerie Selfie Tips

I'm going to give you my 5 top tips on how to take the perfect selfie!



The first thing you are going to want to do is to make sure you are feeling your selfie vibe, trust me if you force a selfie it will look like it. So make sure you have the right mindset for what you want. Want a happy selfie, be happy, want a sad or upset one, then be sad or upset.



Get yourself some good lighting, I hate flash with a passion unless absolutely needed, basically, it needs to be super dark before I will use a flash. The best lighting, sunlight! Natural light. Sit or stand by a window, see how the light hits your face (read: use the front facing camera). Outside? Make sure that you aren't looking into the sunlight, and if you are feeling brave put that sunlight right behind you to give yourself a halo glow.



Don't be afraid to get silly! I love taking silly selfies, with or without my kids. It's fun to look back on and you never know how many people might enjoy seeing the silly side of you!



Now this is my weird but works tip, point your chin down! Push your forehead forward. It will look good I promise. And don't shoot from below up, if anything go up and down.



And my final tip....

Be confident, be true, and, most importantly, be you!

Only Me

Of course I would get strep throat right before my birthday. Thankfully I caught it early and am on antibiotics so hopefully I will feel better by tomorrow for my 32nd birthday!


What am I doing for my birthday you may be asking? My boyfriend is coming to town for a visit! I'm so excited to see him it's been too long. Going to show him off to my friends.

What National Holiday is Your Birthday?

So I just found out my birthday is National Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day, how funny is this? I mean I know that most days have some sort of holiday. But this one is silly.


Anyway you want to know a funny story about when I cried over spilled milk?

This was back when Ariel was still in the NICU, I was in the waiting room with AJ and Karlee while Hector was inside the NICU visiting with Ariel. I decided to use this time to try and pump some milk. Me and pumping milk does not working out very well, I'm proud of any momma that can pump more than their babies eat! I had to pump constantly just to make enough for one feeding. So anyway, I'm in the room setting everything up and I have those bottles that you put the liner bag into, easier for pumping and storing right? NOT when you forget to put the liner into the bottle. I pumped on one side for like 30 minutes before I realized that I had been pumping right onto my shirt. I laughed and cried over spilled milk that day.

How to Make an Easy Peasy Detox Bath for Imbolc

Happy Imbolc! Or if you aren't Pagan Groundhog Day. 


Today marks the beginning of Spring. 


Its when the earth starts waking up. The Goddess is waking from her slumber in the Earth. Persephone is going to be heading home to her mother Demeter. It's when the groundhog sees his shadow or not and we have 6 more weeks of winter or 6 more weeks till spring (did you notice either way it's 6 weeks).

Anyway a nice thing to do for Imbolc is to take a detox or purifying bath. I'm going to give you my Easy Peasy receipe for one that I use most of the time.

Easy Peasy Detox Bath 



  • 1 cup of Epsom salts 
  • 1/2 cup of baking soda 
  • Couple of drops of tea tree oil (optional) 


See isn't that easy?

Now what you're going to want to do is get the water in the tub as hot as you can stand it, the key here is that you want to be sweating but not so hot that you burn yourself. While the water is running you want to put your new bath salts into the water so they are spread around. Then you can slip into the tub turn on some nice music and relax for as long as you want.

Have a happy Imbolc!
