Hello! I’m Lesly, and I’m so glad you stopped in for a visit. I started this blog a year ago in August of 2016, because I needed a creative outlet. I needed something to call my own as I struggled in the life of a stay at home mom. Connecting with other women is fun and exciting! Doing it from my sticky kitchen island while our children run rampant around our home is how I get it all done.
I am very passionate about health, beauty, thriving in wellness and in business. I love helping people do the same! In my posts these passions come to life. I work from home most of the time but you will catch me teaching in home classes and sharing at vendor events around our small home town.
Why I blog
There are two main reasons. The first being to simply encourage women.
I am a stay at home mom, wife and home schooler. My schedule revolves around my home and for a while there, it had little to do with me. That was my own fault. I pushed all my needs aside because I thought that’s what was needed to raise our kids. Wrong – so very wrong. It cost me my happiness which lead to depression.
** Message to mom: Placing your wants and needs on hold will inevitably end in your brokenness and sadness. I get that it’s difficult to chase those dreams with little humans depending on you, life most defiantly slows down at that point, but it shouldn’t stop.
I fought the feelings of “not enough” and “insecurity” for a couple years. That’s when God pulled me out from my mama mess reminding me I was meant for more. So, I write to inspire the woman facing similar obstacles. My desire is to remind you that you are enough, and your worth is immeasurable. You have unique abilities (though you may not have found them yet) that are for meant to be used for a great purpose.
Be brave enough to believe a uniquely beautiful life is yours to be had. – Chrystal Hurst
I write encourage women to take a more natural approach to their health and beauty needs.
Our beauty is delicate. We shouldn’t be using chemical laden products on our skin. These chemicals ruin with our complexion, mess with our hormones (watch out) and wreak havoc on our over all health (YIKES). It’s a very serious issue and many don’t realize the health concerns associated with our “so called” beauty products.
Why have our beauty products been targeted and filled with chemicals? For cheap and easy distribution. It’s not right or fair that our health should suffer for beauty’s sake.
Feeling beautiful and comfortable in our skin starts with a healthy approach and it starts right HERE <<<!
A little more about me
I was raised with girls but God gave me boys. Who says the man upstairs doesn’t have a sense of humor? These two keep me on my toes. They are spunky, full of energy and always laughing. They are my world!
Wife of 10 years – funny story
Dustin and I are high school sweethearts.
He was one of the cool kids in high school, loud, boisterous, a bit of a show off and rule bender. Basically opposite of me in every way. I looked at him and saw trouble! He told me I was going to fall in love and marry him some day. I was shocked at his bold statement – as if it were fact! Yeah right Mr…
He was persistent though and won me over with his determination and heart of gold. He knew what he wanted and darn it if he didn’t get it! Nothing has changed, he’s still like that today and it’s sexy as hell – I’m not gonna lie.
And here we are, 10 years later to the day, celebrating our anniversary. There isn’t a thing I would change.
Going for the dream
All in all, I am just a girl going for it. There is so much to grasp out of life and I’m learning I am my biggest advocate or my worst enemy when it comes to obtaining it.
It’s a mind set, a goal with a plan to achieve it, a dream placed there by God. A chance to step out of that boring comfort zone to live, learn and grow.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
God does not put a dream in your heart that you can not hold in your hand. – Melissa Peopping
