Every article in Darling Magazine Issue 9 was good, but there is an incredibly well written article about sex. You will just have to order an issue to find out why:)

Thinking I’ll add one of these to my #consciouscloset.

Make your own Essential Oil Lip Scrub

Essential Oil Lip Scrub | In Honor of Design | Haley Sheffield Photography www.inhonorofdesign.comEssential oil lip scrub | Haley Sheffield Photography |

I am learning to work essential oils through different aspects of our day to day life. I have a lot to learn though so I was relieved when I found out my friend Casey Wiegand has a site dedicated to all things essential oils! There are some excellent ideas on the blog, she hosts classes, and shares recipe ideas on her new Essential Oils instagram account. I am in!

This is a very simple DIY you can do to help keep you lips from getting too dry, and naturally working in beneficial oils. Just by smelling peppermint it is a tension relief and can help with headaches (I get them easily!), so I use Peppermint for this recipe. However, you can substitute with your favorites like lemon, tangerine, etc.

Essential Oil Lip Scrub
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 C. raw or turbo sugar
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E Oil (optional)
2-4 drops essential oil (I suggest wholesale prices)

Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
Rub into lips and wipe off with a washcloth.
Finish with lip balm of choice.

Enjoy your super soft smackers! You can learn the benefits of each oil through Casey’s magazine which is a super helpful visual guide.

#EncourageBeauty Campaign Launch


You all might remember when Hilary and I shared the Encourage Beauty campaign last year? Well, next week we will be starting an all new round, with a new crew, and the message behind this campaign is a powerful one. I am teaming up alongside each of these women with hearts of gold to spread a movement of encouraging other women to embrace and encourage a natural beauty given by God to the heart of every women. The kind of beauty that makes you radiate. Self confidence, self worth, authenticity, kindness, faith, compassion…all qualities that make a women undeniably beautiful! That is what we are celebrating and passing on next week, and I invite you to be a part of this campaign we hope catches fire!

It’s pretty simple to be a part of! Announce the campaign you are joining in on, share a photo or two a day on instagram following the prompts above to encourage beauty within yourself and/or family and friends. It is only 5 days long, so head over to the NEW website ( to get all the details and downloads.

Wishing you all a grand weekend (TGIFFFFF!) ahead and catch you on the flip side of #EncourageBeauty:)
