Young Living Premium Starter Kit + $30 Freebies

I have been using Essential Oils for a while and just recently decided to jump on board with Young Living.
I am really excited at all that they have done for my family, including getting rid of my headaches. I have had headaches most of my life and no doctor has been able to figure out what they are caused from. I have for years suffered with massive pain but now with the help of Peppermint Essential oils I don't have any pain anymore. It is a bit of a miracle. I have so many other great success stories that I can't wait to share with you. 

If you’ve been wanting to get started, this is a great time to join me and get the starter kit and $30 in FREEBIES! 

Purchase a Premium Starter Kit by using the steps below and I’ll send you all of these goodies
-a spiral bound 448 page Reference Guide for Essential Oils ($16.95 value)!
-a set of Essential Oil Labels ($3.95 value) to keep your oils organized!
-a set of Quick Reference Guides ($4.95 value)!
-an Essential Oil Starter Guide!
-You’ll also get access to our incredible Facebook groups with over 20,000 members to support you as you start and continue on your oily journey!
If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below to get your freebies!

1. Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which is 24% more).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2521058, that way I can send you all your FREE goodies.

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. To get the freebies, you’ll need to check the box next to the Premium Starter Kit.  You can get the kit that’s $150 or you can get the kit that’s $160 with the Bamboo Diffuser.

6. I’d recommend skipping Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. You’ll get an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs).

7. Go through the checkout process.

8. Be sure to send an email to to let me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I can send you your freebies!

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Does signing up make me a "distributor"?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month? 
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

#Cinderella in Theaters today March 13th!

Today is the day that Princesses from all the lands have been waiting for! Cinderella is in theaters today!
Before Cinderella even started you will have the pleasure of watching Frozen Fever, a short story with our favorite characters from Frozen. It's Anna'a birthday and Elsa is doing her very best to make today the best birthday ever! Elsa has everything she needs to make that happen.  See all the craziness that happens in true Frozen fashion.

I had the honor and privilege of being one of the first to see Cinderella in the theaters. I took my 7 year old princess with me for a girls night!
Growing up, Cinderella was one of my favorite Princesses. In fact whenever I had to clean my room (which was always) I felt that I was Cinderella. I mean come on, how dare my parents make me clean my own room. The torture!!! Ha ha ha
Since we all know the story of Cinderella I don't need to worry about spoilers. This movie is very close to the original Cinderella from 1950, but they made it come to life. 

Cinderella (Lily James) was not a special princess to begin with, she was a normal little girl with wonderful parents that absolutely adore her.  All of a sudden in true Disney fashion, her mother dies unexpectedly.  Years later her father believes it's time to try again for happily ever after and remarries.  Ella supports her loving father's decision and welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and step sisters. After all, that is what you do when you love someone.
On a business trip Ella's father passes away and she is left to live with her step mother and sisters. Quickly, she finds herself becoming the servant of the house. It was quite amazing how her step mother turned her kindness into misleading and mistreatment every time. Despite the miserable circumstances Ella had to deal with, she always remembered what her mother told her have "courage and be kind".
The hatred that Ella had to endure from her step mother and sisters all stemmed from jealousy. They were all so jealous of Ella's beauty, kindness, respect and love from her father. Jealousy makes people absolutely evil!
Through all the bad comes the good too. She meets a handsome man (Richard Madden) in the woods. Not knowing he was the Prince she falls for him. Soon after all the maidens in the land are summoned to the palace for a royal ball, where the prince will pick a wife! Can you imagine the excitement, a commoner could actually have the opportunity to be a princess or queen. 
Ella is so excited to hear about this news because she might be reunited with her mystery man in the woods. She fixes her mother's old dress and looks beautiful. All those dreams are ruined when her step mother and sisters destroy her dress and forbid her to go.  
That's when the magic really begins, and her fairy god mother appears to make her dreams come true! She gets the carriage, horses, and the dress. Just look at that beautiful dress! It was absolutely gorgeous! 

She heads off to the royal ball and has an absolutely wonderful time with her mystery man, then he tells her that he is the prince. She really had no idea, which makes this story even better and shows her character. 
Of course you know the ending, the clock stricks midnight and she is off before the spell is broken. Her prince doesn't even know her name and orders his men to search for the girl that fits into the glass slipper. He finally finds her and they live happily ever after!  
I have to say that I usually don't like remakes, because it just seems like the writers don't have any new ideas and had to use old materials to get a "job done". This is true exception! I was shocked and pleasantly surprised at all the details that were thought about in the making of this movie. I thought the palace was excellent, from the paintings on the wall to the furniture. I truly believed they were in the royal palace. They took a lot thought to make the outfits and hair resemble the original Cinderella movie. It was just amazing.

The cast was phenomenal!  I was a bit concerned when I saw Cate Blanchett who plays Lady Tremaine (the step mother) on the screen I thought, "that is Daisy from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". How is she going to make me believe she is an evil step mother! Well, she is one great actress because after a few minutes and seeing her evilness I totally believed that she was mean, cruel and everything you envision an "evil step mother" would be.

If you are looking for a great night out with the girls or your little girl, I highly recommend this movie. It is magical!

This is definitely a movie that we will be purchasing for Christmas. In fact, my little one already put it on her Christmas list. :)

No More Clogged Showers with the Drainwig

I think one of the worst things about having long hair is cleaning all the hair out of the drain. I mean it can get really gross. Now that I am a mom to a little girl with hair down to her bottom, it is that much worse. I would love to call on hubby to fix this every month or so but apparently that doesn't work as well as I would like. It's not that I am not capable of getting the needle nose pliers out and digging all that gross hair and soap out of the drain, it's that I just really don't want to and if I don't want to do it he should be more than happy to do it. Right!  If that philosophy works in your house I would love for you to teach me your secrets because it is really not working over here. 

I was asked to try the DrainWig and thought heck yeah! I need all the help I can get. The pliers work but it is kinda of a pain and if there is a tool out there that all you have to do is install it and then in a couple of months take it out and all the hair will come out with it. I want to try that! 

I have to admit when I first saw the DrainWig I had that, "why didn't I think of that" moment. It really could be brilliant and very easy to install. 

The Drainwig is just a chain with "whiskers" that you easily put down the drain and over time the hair catches on to the chain. After a couple of months you just lift up the Drainwig and throw it away. No more needle nose pliers or huge fur balls that need to be disposed of. I am really excited to see this work. This digging in the drain to unclog it is one of my least favorite jobs. 

  • Universal design fits most shower and tub drains, 100% guaranteed or your money back.

  • Hygienic: completely disposable design allows you to remove hair & debris without ever touching it!

  • Low maintenance: replace just every 2-5 months

  • Saves you money and hassle
    - no more expensive plumbing calls!

The Drainwig is only $19.95 for 4 of them, either 4 shower Drainwigs, 4 Tub Drainwigs or a combo of each. That's not all, I have an awesome deal for my readers!!! When you order the Drainwig from this link you will receive $5 off your purchase by just entering coupon code FIZZ5 (that is the number 5)

Vision Board Planning Step One: Losing 50 pounds


A couple of days ago I actually posted about my Vision Board for 2015. What was I thinking? Now you all know my goals and are going to keep me accountable. I realized that with all the emails and comments I received; now the pressure is really on. 
Since there's no going back, I'm just going to take that Vision Board List one step at a time. 

The first thing I am going to focus on is the weight goal of 50lbs in one year.
For the last year, I have been following Trim Healthy Mama about 80% of the time. THM is a new way of looking at food. Sisters Serene and Pearl teach you not only how to satisfy your cravings and give you more energy, which is exactly what you would expect, but they also take your health to a new level.  They show you how to balance your hormones, how to re-fire your metabolism, make your skin glow, ignite marriage intimacy, simple but effective exercise plan and answers for postmenopausal women.

This book is jam filled with information, 700+ pages in fact. In this book, you will find 250 recipes to get you started. These recipes are absolutely delicious. I found recipes that my family LOVES and would want regardless of my new eating plan.
This book was so big I personally took it to Office Max and had them split my book, separating the information portion from the recipe portion. I took the recipe portion and the index making my very own "THM Cookbook". I also took some extra printer paper, cut it to size, and had them add that to the back so I could add additional recipes in my book. I have found tons of recipes on Pinterest. I don't always want to look on the computer and try and remember the awesome meal I made last month; it is hand written in the back of my book and ready for me to grab.

I know many people that are following THM and are very successful. I, for one, am a turtle loser. I lose at such a slow rate it is very discouraging and then I want to quit.

I thought my goal of losing 50lbs this year was realistic until Brandy mentioned, it's one pound a week, consistently. I really need to break that goal down to help me achieve it. So here goes. I am going to work on January!
  • Going to eat on plan 
  • Drink enough water daily 
  • Meal plan weekly. Making a plan is the only way I will succeed
  • Pre-make some meals for easy quick meals
  • Clean out pantry to organize a THM area 
  • Clean out freezer to make a THM area  (making it easier to grab food when hungry)
My goal is to lose 10lbs in January on Trim Healthy Mama. I figure you always lose more the first month, and I need to account for that. I don't want to get too confident, where I feel I can eat whatever I want for a while. That will only sabotage myself.

What are your goals for 2015, and how are you working to accomplish them?
