Currently, March Edition

Here's what I'm thinking, feeling, seeing, enjoying and hating... Currently

I always seem to post these posts when "life gets in the way" and I don't have time to take photos for more "blogger type" of content. Here we are, in quarantine, with four kids home and out of school indefinitely. It's been raining nearly the whole time, because why not be super miserable when you're miserable, right?! Ughhhh. So here we are, in the strangest time in my adult life - maybe even whole life (9/11 was pretty weird too) locked up in our house. With everyone home, it's really hard to get good photos, it's hard for my husband to make phone calls and conduct webinars, it's hard for the twins to nap, it's just all hard right now. In reality, it's not that hard, it's all a first world problem because we have shelter and food and even entertainment. But as an extrovert, I'm telling you THIS IS HARD. Lots of quick change. Here's what's been going on around here, currently:

Reading at night, because I'm sick of screen time/the news/social media. I've got book lists here and here if you want to add them to your next Amazon order. Cooking dinner at home every night has also been fun. I really do love to cook. Plus, we're actually saving money not eating out as much! My kid's newfound love for bug hunting. We got them head lights and magnify glasses and they've had a blast looking for bugs inside and outside. They found a small spider in my kitchen as I was cooking dinner, so I stepped on it and they said, "No! He was just looking for his mommy!" Oops.

My kids' homeschool science education is at least on point.

The news. Just like everyone else. For the first couple of days, I was attached to social media and realized that was a massive mistake. I've since knocked that off for my own mental health (pandemic or not, social media is NOT a good place to spend the majority of your time!) and now just read the news once a day and watch the evening news. I hope to even cut that down! I'm at the point of information over load. 

At home workouts. I've never been a fan of them - I LOVE group fitness classes, feeding off the energy of others and listening to loud music. But since that can't happen right now, I'm watching online fitness videos from my bedroom. Lots of my friends are fitness or yoga teachers and have taken to doing online stuff, so it's fun to support them and still get my workouts in. In fact, I've worked out every day this week when I normally only workout 4x a week.

If you're looking for amazing FREE at home workout vids, my personal friend and Pilates studio owner is putting 5, 10 and 20 minute versions of her studio work outs, which are some of my fave workouts! Click here to check it out.

Running my second Instagram account, Uncomplicatedlifeblogoils! It's taking off so fast, and the community there is full of amazing people. I've never much enjoyed IG - it always felt so fake to me. People following to get followed, commenting to drive up their own engagement... But this account is full of people who are interested in learning, building community and supporting each other as we grow our healthiest lives together. It's really been a joy. If you're interested in learning about more natural practices in your life, go follow! You're welcome there with us, even if you're a newbie.

I do a series on MLM oil comparisons, do themed posts like "skincare" and "ways to de-stress" and all sorts of other stuff - even non-oily stuff. Come follow along!

Pinterest. Overnight, they marked my website as spam and I went from my normal page views per day to a few hundred to it's lowest point - 78. A whole 78 page views a day! I died. I knew immediately it was Pinterest traffic but I thought they had changed the algorithm on me and I hadn't adapted fast enough. Then a whole week later (embarrassingly enough, yes it took me a whole week to realize this) I found out my whole site was blocked as spam on Pinterest. This can happen by accident when Pinterest cleans out spam accounts - regularly, "good" accounts get cleared with them. Like mine did. And it completely ruined my page views AND my affiliate sales AND my ad sales for the month. Fun times, the life of a blogger.

To their credit, as soon as I realized the issue and got a hold of the right people, they had it repaired in a matter of hours. While it was stressful, the fix was relatively easy and they were quite fast to respond to my demands. So, it's a love/hate relationship, and I'm happy to report it's back on the love side.

When this will all end. I need a manicure and a pedicure BADLY. First world problems for sure, but good God can I just be let out of my house for a nail appointment?! Please?

Hope you all hang in there during this INSANE time! I hope to be able to continue to produce content and be a source of normalcy. This week, I just couldn't muster it with all the abrupt change. Next week, I'm hoping to do and be better. Time will tell.


  1. These conversations are not so incredible for somebody to chip away at keurig cappuccino.. This is on the grounds that they are very gruff and nothing is told on them. They are misdirecting every one of us.

  3. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including Herpes, Diabetics, Asthma, Cancer, Hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Hepatitis B and my Sister and her Husband were cured of herpes by chief dr lucky who uses natural herbs to cure different kinds of illness. Even chief dr luck proved to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless people using natural herbs. I know it is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. Contact  on WhatsApp  +2348132777335 or email

  4. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
