Shoes aren't as affordable as they once were, nor are they built like they used to be. My husband and I aren't made of money, so when it comes to shoe shopping for our little ones, we tend to settle on the shoe that provides comfort, durability, while also offering affordability. It's been quite the journey trying to find shoes that fit the bill and last longer than a couple of months, but I think we may have finally found them—and they feature even more benefits than I was looking for!
As a blogger, I'm always looking for more effective ways to plan posts, keep track of deadlines, and remind myself when giveaways and reviews are supposed to go live. I've gone through several planners over the past several years, but none—and I mean absolutely none—compare to the planner that I am introducing to you today.
In Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the player controls Link who sets off on a quest to stop Ganondorf. In the game, music plays a major role. According to Wikipedia, "to progress through the game, the player must learn and perform several songs on an ocarina."
Many gamers claim that Ocarina of Time was one of the greatest Legend of Zelda games ever made. In fact, the game topped GameRankings.com charts for over a decade. Needless to say, the ocarina became a popular instrument around that time.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try a real ocarina.

During the second week of June, my sister Jessica gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Jess had chosen a nautical theme for her daughter's nursery, complete with pink and gray chevron. Needless to say, when I saw the pink chevron patterned baby car seat cover from Bonafide Baby, I knew that it would be the perfect gift.
Melaleuca alternifolia is a tree native to Australia and is also the same tree used to create Tea Tree Oil. Tea Tree Oil is a popular essential oil, especially among Australians.
Since ancient times, Tea Tree Oil has been used by Australian aboriginals as a "cure-all." The health benefits may be attributed to its numerous properties, including antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and antimicrobial, among others. Tea Tree Oil is a staple in medicine cabinets across Australia. It should be noted, however, that Tea Tree Oil is poisonous when ingested and should only be used topically!
Tea Tree Oil is extracted through steam distillation of the twigs and leaves of the Tea Tree—not the same plant used to create tea or tea oil.
For my opinion regarding Scential Health's Tea Tree Oil, please read on. Towards the end of this post, you will also find five recipes for Tea Tree Oil.
Cinnamon, to me, has always been a fragrance that brings about feelings of warmth, comfort, and love. It is a scent that makes me think of family gatherings, particularly those during the cooler months of the year. Perhaps I make this association because cinnamon is used in some of my favorite fall and winter dessert recipes.

I decided to do a little digging to find out more about the oil, and what I discovered was rather interesting. For one, did you know that cinnamon is not really a "wintry" fragrance at all? In fact, Cinnamomum zeylanicum originated in tropical climates.

Collecting essential oils is now a hobby of mine, as you may have realized from my past essential oils posts. I truly believe that these miracle oils are capable of healing—mentally, physically, and spiritually—and are a true Godsend, especially when used in combination with modern medicine.
Over the past several months, I've had the opportunity to review several oils from Scential Health, including Ylang Ylang, Cypress, Lemon, Grapefruit, and Frankincense.
Today, I am excited to review yet another Scential Health Essential Oil: Lavender.
