Simply Earth has a wonderful essential oil recipe box. They give you everything you need to make oils for your home. I love how it comes with bottles and oils. This one box had wax to make an essential oil candle.
If you are interested in a box you can use my coupon code Barefootandlovingitfree
Are you interested in joining the squad? Sign up here.
What oil is your favorite? I like to try all of them. The energy one is probably something I should use. With 3 kids my energy always needs an extra boost.
Maybe you just want to try one oil at a time. That's okay too. They are available for single oil purchase on the Simply Earth website.
Overall, I think their boxes are a great way to start playing around with essential oils. Essential oils have so many helpful uses.

I joined up with a bunch of small business owners the other day to spread awareness for shopping small this month. Shopping small business doesn't have to be one day a month or one day a year. It can be supporting them by liking posts, sharing their creations with others. I love the way the community gets together to lift each other up. We are all trying to run a successful business and earn a living.
For the month of October use this hashtag for your social media posts. Christmas is coming up. Time for holiday gift shopping. Don't get me wrong, you will see me shopping at Target. But also see me buying on Etsy. There are so many amazing makers out there.
Do you have a shop? Let me know in the comments. I would love to check your shop out.

What is Piphany?
Piphany is a contemporary women's clothing brand. It offers a great opportunity to women who might need to work from home. It also offers amazing styles each week.
I think the why can work for many different reasons. My reason is I have a 2 yr old at home and I am not doing daycare at the moment. I have two other kids that are in school full time. I always wanted to have a job from home.
The clothes are versatile for all lifestyles. What I mean is that you can be a business woman who works in an office and likes to wear professional styles. Also you can be a mom on the go who likes to be casual and comfortable.
The Glendora is an example of a great layering piece. I really love dusters. That is what I call long cardigans that go near my knees or longer.
I think that all of the prices are on point and affordable. There is clothing for every season.
Here I am wearing a Greene St sweater. I love the little twist in the front. It is such a fun piece.
If you are interested in becoming a Piphany Stylist feel free to contact me for any info.

WOW! Stuff has come out with a terrific line of Harry Potter toys. Have you seen the Harry Potter movies or read the books? I have seen all of the movies. I hope one day my little ones would enjoy it or even read the books.
Now we all know Harry could not have survived all those years without Hermione. She was the brains of the group. In my opinion, of course.
What is a great gift for a Harry Potter fan? A light painting wand. This is a neat toy that you can use with an app. I really like the design of the wand.
You really need to check out the other gifts they make as well.
Here is a video that better shows what this awesome toy does.
Head over to the WOW! Stuff website to see the other gifts. They have videos up of each amazing Harry Potter toy.

I am so excited to play around with my new Cricut Explore Air 2. The Cricut machine cuts paper, card stock, leather, and vinyl. Looking through all the projects is so much fun. The possibilities are endless.
This is where you can change your blade or put a marker. The Cricut can draw and write for you. You can get a deeper cutting blade also. The blade depends on what you are going to cut. For now I will be cutting card stock and vinyl. I am a beginner with this machine.
I have already learned that I need to pay attention to loading it right. Always pick the correct settings too. There is much to learn in the design space as well.
I already know I want to try and make some holiday banners. Eventually work my way up to a leather bracelet.
For now I will play around with simple cuts. Here is my first heart cut out. It is amazing how fast this machine works. I am so impressed. This takes crafting to a whole new level.
I have only used it a few times but know that I love it. I think it was money well spent.
Check out the Cricut website for yourself. There is an even better machine called the Cricut Maker. If I master this machine maybe I will get that one next.
Do you like to make things? What is your favorite craft?

Softer Than Brittle is a great snack to bring with you this summer. Do you have a long car ride? Are you going to the beach or park? Throw a few of these in your bag and go. I love that they are gluten free, dairy free, and safe for vegans. They are a healthy alternative when it comes to snacking in our household. They are also safer on the teeth. It isn't like regular brittle where it hurts to bite on. This brittle really is soft and flaky.
They are bite size which is nice for the kids. Softer Than Brittle comes in different nut types. My favorite is the cashew one. It is made with 6 to 7 ingredients and comes from a family recipe.
I am so happy we tried this delicious treat.
You can find Softer Than Brittle on Amazon.

We love squishies. Smooshy Mushy makes so many cute squishies. These are really tiny ones. You can use them as keychains if you want. Sometimes they even smell nice.
Check out my YouTube channel. We play with squishies, video games, and more.
Barefoot and Loving It.
It may be summer time but it still can rain. What do you do with the kids on rainy days? Board games are a great way to entertain them. Goliath Games make so many fun board games for all ages.
Build or Boom is really fun. I enjoyed playing with my daughter. If you aren't fast enough, another player can blow up your work. This can get really challenging.
Let's Go Fishing' is super cute for the little ones in the family. My almost 2 year old was ready to play and my 6 year old. They had fun playing together.
Giggle Wiggle needs batteries. He moves around. This game will bring lots of laughs. It is great for the little kids and even us old adults.
Rainy days do not have to be so boring. Grab a few games and keep them in the closet. They are great for family game night and playdates.
Goliath Games sent us these games for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

This year at SweetSuite18 was held at Chelsea Piers. It is really beautiful there during the summer. Inside you could find the coolest balloon maze ever. I loved this palm tree made of balloons. So creative and fun.
Every year at SweetSuite you can find the greatest toy brands in the industry. This year they opened it up to the kids too. I think next year I will bring my older two kids. We certainly buy a lot of toys in our household.
My daughter loves JoJo everything right now. I thought this outfit looked pretty cool. JoJo clothing line is coming to a Target near you. Our family shops at Target nearly every week. Look at that skirt. So much sparkle!
Both my son and daughter really like Pokemon. My son has a crazy collection of Pokemon EX and GX cards. These figures are super cute. Pokemon is one of the shows I can tolerate on repeat. There are battle figures and cute plushies.
Fingerlings are very popular right now. We have a monkey and a unicorn at home. I love these tiny ones that you can put on a pencil or hang from anywhere.
This year Moose Toys are bringing you these fun figures. They come inside a tin which has hard sand. You fizz it away and dig into it. The figures are neat and could be for boys and girls. My 9 year old son can't wait to get his hands on more.
I must say, overall it was a great experience. This was my 3rd year going to SweetSuite and I loved it.
You even get a swag box full of toys shipped to your house. How amazing is that? If you are a blogger, influencer, and/ or YouTuber you can go. Many people book hotel rooms if they are from out of town. You can get discounted room rates for your trip. I took the LIRR train in.

Being a parent to multiple kids gets hectic. Lunches and snacks need to be packed. We want them to eat healthy but also quick prepare time. Yumble subscription makes it easier on us. They have many different meal options. All of them are healthy. I really like the ones that you don't even have to cook.
You open up the sleeve. There will be directions on how to prepare your kids meal. Some will tell you a cook time. Others say no cooking. I found that these meals worked well with my two daughters. My youngest who will be 2 in September, loves to eat most foods. My 5 year old likes mac n cheese. So the Yes Please Mac n Cheese was her favorite.
I found myself sharing Munch a Lunch with my youngest. These are fun for snacking too. Some kids do not eat huge meals every sitting. I find these to be good portions.
Do you need a healthy and stress free food option to feed your little ones? I would recommend trying Yumble out.

When I was a little girl my family and I did game night on the weekend. It was fun. My dad usually won playing Monopoly. I think board games are a great way to bring the family together no matter what age we are. My 3 kids are at different game stages. My youngest is a toddler almost ready to play Lucky Ducks Game. My 5 year old who will be turning 6 very soon loves this game too.
Each duck has a symbol on the bottom. You need to find your symbol. It is helpful for kids learning shapes and colors.
Mr. Bucket was a great game for my girls also. He moves around and the balls pop out. You need to put your color balls inside. It is a really cute game.
Out of every game they tried all 3 of the kids loved Pop the Pig. I think this is a super fun game that everyone can enjoy. It is such a clever concept. Feed the pig. Watch his belly grow. Even my son who is 9 loved this game. This is also good with teaching numbers. There is a number on the bottom of the burgers. This number tells you how many times you need to press on the pigs head.
I'm not going to lie, we are a tech family that loves video games. I think it is important to step back from the technology and play board games. There are so many amazing games out there. Set a night each week to play with your family.
Goliath Games has a large variety of fun games to play with family and friends.

Is it a rainy day and you have 3 kids stuck inside? Well I don't know about you but it can get pretty chaotic inside with 3 little ones. Most everyone loves to color. So grab a few Colorfoldz stencils and use your favorite markers or crayons.
Colorfoldz make a unique stencil that folds out. It gives you steps to make a really cute picture. They have stencils for everyone. Dinosaurs and princesses are pretty popular in our household.
I think this is also a great idea for a long car ride too. Or even a plane ride.
They come in 3 folds and 5 folds.
There is paper in the middle section. If you run out of paper you can always add more of your own.
Colorfoldz make great gifts for birthdays and holidays.
Do you like to color?
