You still have time to SPRING CLEAN! There is plenty of time before summer starts, and there is no way you want to spend time cleaning while the sun is beaming. So get your rags, cleaner, and let’s start cleaning!

What is that SMELL?

I’m telling you nothing feels good like a clean house. But I don’t like the smells a clean home gives off; I know crazy right. Chemicals are what we usually smell when we clean our house with…right? So then our home is going to smell like full chemicals. Yuck!

I want to introduce you to a plant and probiotic-based with no man-made chemicals and is scented with essential oils- Counter Culture. It is made with USDA Certified Organic ingredients with no colors, allergens or fake fragrances. I’m in love with this stuff and will be using for a long time.

Counter Culture Bottle with bathroom sink

Counter Culture: 4 Ingredients Only

  • Purified Water
  • Probiotics (lactic acid and bacteria cultures)
  • Beneficial Compounds from fermentation brew
  • Organic Essential Oil

Most cleaning products have chemical detergents or toxic chemicals that kill bacteria, but Counter Culture works differently. Counter Culture cleans surfaces, eliminates stinky smells and helps restore the healthy balance of bacteria in your home. Now you know what type of CLEANER you need in the house then let’s get started with the cleaning tips.

Spring Cleaning Tips

  • Windows: Clean on an overcast day. Wash with a glass cleaner and micro cloth. Also don’t forget the blinds, which you can use a duster or vacuum if you have fabric shades.
  • Microwave: Place a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of water with chopped up lemon. Turn on high for 5 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before opening the microwave. Then wipe out with cloth inside and out- it will shine!
  • Counters: Wipe down all kitchen surfaces with Counter Culture All Purpose Cleaner. Plus you can’t forget the fridge- wipe down everything and throw away stuff you don’t use or went bad. Fridges can stink so when you use the Counter Culture those essential oils will help with the smell. 
  • Shower Curtain: Buy a new one or machine wash on gentle cycle with bath towels. If shower curtain is fabric make sure to hit it with the Air+ Fabric Refresh when you hang back up. 
  • Bedding: During spring is the best time to wash all bedroom bedding and swap out with spring colors. Put away winter bedding in a huge ziplock bag with a couple of drops of essential oils or even spray the Air + Fabric Refresh

Yes, we know there is much more to spring cleaning than our tips above, but I also made a SPRING CLEAN CHECKLISTfor you so no worries we have you covered!

Hands On Toys Your Kids Will Love

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Toys, toys and more toys, with four little ones under the age of seven I am always on the lookout for some great hands on toys that I know, will be a hit in our house.  All my children are very hands on learners and love items that will keep them busy. I’ve found a few awesome ideas that I’m sure your child will love too. I feel that alot of learning takes place when you can actually get your hands on it and do it yourselves. I know if that’s the case with me, it will be with my kids too. So hands on toys are so important in our home.

Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer

Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer-GUESS 1981-TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream-C.O. Bigelow Deluxe Cleanser

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A great perfume, cleanser or face cream is the perfect little luxury that women can treat themselves to as the warmer weather takes over this summer. With all the responsibilities we take on, a little bit of pampering is a great way to take a time out and do a small thing just for us.

I know, everything else is higher on the totem pole than ourselves. I get it. I’m in that frame of mind more often than I like to be. But, never forget that nothing gets done without women forging our way through the day, directing the schedules and driving the kids and preparing the food, etc. for those around us. We deserve a break, too, a small moment in time to do something nice for ourselves…. [read more]

Items That Are Great For Traveling

Items That Are Great For Traveling

Beauty Brite Disclosure
With it being full blown traveling season I know lots of people are either headed out for spring break or getting ready for summer vacations. I don’t know about you, but when I travel I like to have things that make me feel comfortable and make it convenient to travel. I know sometimes weather in other places can take a huge toll on my skin and not having to use travel samples from hotels and having my own personal items can keep my skin from flaring up and breaking out.

Update Your Makeup Routine for Spring

Update Your Makeup Routine For Spring

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I can admit that I frequently get into a makeup rut. I generally have two looks: a professional one for the office and a smoky, sassy look for going out at night. I’ve wanted to branch out and try a bolder style that also left me feeling feminine. I needed makeup that could transition from the office to a dinner out with my husband. I have heard about Arbonne makeup for years; many of my close girlfriends swear by Arbonne’s professional line of skincare and cosmetics for their own makeup routines. When I had the opportunity to try several products, I was very excited to see what all of the excitement was about!

My Dream About My Brother

Last night, I had a dream about my brother. What makes this dream special is that my brother passed away in July 2014. I was thinking about him yesterday as well. I was thinking about him and sometimes I wanted to cry but I wanted to remember him in happier times. I miss him dearly. I just cannot believe he’s gone. Knowing what I know now, I would have done things much differently. I wish he asked for help or reached out.
