Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Heyyy spring…how about an orange carrot smoothie?

It’s true. When I travel, I loooooove finding where the nearest Jamba Juice location is so I can order my fav “orange carrot karma”. It’s fresh squeezed orange and carrot juice blended with frozen mangoes. It’s refreshing and so full of Vitamin A and C! Buuuut it’s one of those 16 oz, $5.50 smoothies that could break the bank if you’re not careful, soooo…

I’ve created my own!

And lucky for you, Bolthouse Farms has a 3-pack of organic carrot juice on sale at Costco for $3.99 until the 21st!

Combined with frozen organic mangoes and a few drops of orange oil, it’s the closest thing to Jamba Juice’s smoothie and it’s soooo good!

Orange Carrot Smoothie

+ 12 oz organic carrot juice

+ 1 cup frozen mango chunks

+ 3 drops Young Living orange oil

Combine all ingredients in your VitaMix or other blender and puree until smooth! Feel free to add in Vital Proteins collagen for extra protein. Enjoy!

Want to get your hands on some orange oil? Or are you ready to make the jump into a new lifestyle? You can simply click the link here and get started with the prettiest starter kit in the woooorld and I’ll send you a FREE orange oil! It’s my FAVORITE springtime, and well, any time oil. It’s mood boosting, whitens teeth, supports healthy immune system function, increases your body’s ability to absorb vitamin c, can help support acne and inflammation among so many other benefits!

That’s TWELVE oils, an incredible support group and community to come alongside you in a new toxin free lifestyle, a beautiful diffuser I’m totally swooning over and the start to a toxin free, chemical free home, as well as tools in your toolbox should different symptoms arise, etc.

The cherry blossoms are starting to bloom so that means it’s…happy spring!!!!
