It’s Bellarific Friday! on FRIDAY! And one of my new obssessions/passions

aside from stamping and journaling and painting and stamping again and collecting and and and  …..

I am obssessed with… you ready?  An age old natural product… essential oils.  They are my BEST BEST friends.. I cannot begin to tell you about how much they have helped my family..Like FOR REALS.  THEY CHANGED ME.. and they changed my WHOLE FAMILY.. even the male non-believer.. I’m not mentioning any names..lol.   They are in my purse at all times  from  headaches.. to tummy aches.. to nausea to just needing a boost.. these are my heros!  You know me.. I NEVER mention anything I don’t firmly believe in.  I NEVER do.  These I have been using for the past 6 months and I am ready to SCREAM from the top of my lungs to anyone who will listen (LOL)  about how these have worked for me!  I loved them so much, I bought a kit from Young Living essential oils and the rest is history.  the BEST investment of my life.. and such fun research to see what I can use when :).. If you would love to hear more about this, just email me or message me on facebook or ask in the comments below :) it would be my pleasure!  I am also thinking I may include one day of the week devoted to a combo I discovered, a single oil and what it has done for me :)..  I guess when I love something so much I feel the need to shove it down your throats so you do it with me.. is that SO wrong? LOL.  You can just call me ESSENtiabella n’k?

Ok enough about my new obssession.. ok never enough but enough for now. LOL.

Let’s discuss this week’s bellarific Friday shall we?  our theme this week was a COLOUR CHALLENGE!

Last sale of 2014! Happy Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday and HAPPY BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! :)

Hiya sistahs!

It’s snowing here in Toronto, and what better way of cheering ME up is to make my sistahs excited and HAPPY :).  This is our first REAL American Thanksgiving having moved to the U.S in October so we wanted to celebrate for REALS.   We are having our last sale of 2014 where the WHOLE STORE is 20% off!!  This is a great opportunity to stock up for yourself, or for family and friends :)

Simply use coupon code: appreciate2014 at the end of your order and *POOF* 20% off the total will disappear.  I am now trying this code business with my weight.  If I enter my ideal weight will it *POOF* and disappear too? hmph.   So I hope you take advantage and enjoy taking advantage of this discount as much as I enjoy giving it :)

And we have LOTS to look forward to in January.  I have a BRAND NEW line coming out which you will F-A-I-N-T and S-W-O-O-N over.  I promise…  It’s insanely adorable.  Trust da bella ok?
