Ever since I found out I have #MTHFR I have been trying to reduce chemicals in my daily life. I’m pretty solid in my skin care routine but I started researching chemicals in other items I use. One thing I was shocked to read about was chemicals in toothpaste! I did MORE research and found out about doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste and was super impressed. I reached out to @healthy_living_in_colorado for some samples and as soon as I tried it I was hooked! She also hooked me up with some amazing essential oil samples I have become OBSESSED with😭😍. I’ll be sharing with you guys in my stories today my fav #doTerra products and what I recently ordered! If you have any questions feel free to message @healthy_living_in_colorado she is so helpful and knowledgeable! . ⬇️⬇️more info below⬇️⬇️ . . . While many whitening toothpastes and products contain questionable ingredients that can be damaging to enamel, the fluoride-free doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste formula utilizes the powerful cleansing properties of essential oils and other gentle ingredients, so you won’t have to worry about compromising the safety of your oral health for the sake of whiter teeth. All doTERRA products use safe, natural ingredients, so you can rest easy knowing that you won’t endanger your body or your family . . . doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste is designed to leave your teeth and breath fresh with the unique mixture of Cinnamon and Peppermint essential oils. The pure, potent power of these essential oils will help give you fresh breath throughout the day, while leaving your toothbrush minty fresh after use as well. . . In addition to the refreshing qualities of doTERRA On Guard Toothpaste, this formula also helps remove plaque and stains from the teeth. Using hydrated silica, a natural abrasive, doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste can help remove stains and plaque. This ingredient is also gentle, so it can help reduce plaque and teeth stains, without damaging your tooth enamel. . . . #doterraessentialoils #doterraonguard #nontoxicliving #nontoxicskincare #essentialoils #doterra #doterralifestyle #lovenoxbaby #mthfrawareness #mthfr

I’ve been super sensitive to smells my entire life. I didn’t start wearing perfume til my 20s and even then I can barely stand it some days. So candles have never been a huge part of my life because all the chemicals and synthetic fragrances give me THE WORST migraine ever. But I have three dogs and no matter how clean I keep my house, you just need a little something to make it smell beautiful 😍 (and not room sprays 🤢) . . So I was SUPER excited when I found @ginghamgirlscandleco who creates hand poured soy candles scented with essential oils!!! Lavender Fields Forever is my FAVORITE!! I can burn it all day long without getting a migraine and it smells incredible 😍 She uses a blend of essential oils such as: cedar wood, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender and orange to natural fragrance the candle and it is a wonderful combination! Not to mention, it’s totally safe!! There are so many unsafe ingredients in candles (like bath & body works) that we light and then inhale for hours. It affects our brain and blood stream putting toxins in our body. I highly recommend you guys try out @ginghamgirlscandleco you won’t be disappointed 😍😍 you can visit their Instagram or shop their link in my bio! . . What’s your fav candle scent? . . . . . . . #happysaturday #raedunn #rainbowbaby🌈 #soycandles #essentialoils #naturalfragrance #homedecor #lavenderfields #hobbylobby #flowerbasket #essentialoilcandles #nontoxichome #alexajeanpresets #saturday #funday #safecandles #safehome #homesweethome #candleshop #letitburn #smallbusiness #smallbusinesssupport

I love each and every one of my Small Business Saturday Features, and it is such an honor to be able to showcase your work. Today’s post is a little extra special to me. I stumbled across The Rust Barn on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their handmade items. However, I had NO IDEA what an incredible story they had! ❤️ Without giving too much away, businesses like these are exactly why I write about small businesses. IT IS SO INSPIRING! I am reminded why it is so important to support handmade or small businesses. You are not putting more money in a billionaires pocket but instead allowing someone to live the life of their dreams doing what they love. ❤️ : 💖link in bio💖 : : : : #smallbusiness #gratitude #smallbusinessowner #raedunn #raedunndisplay #raedunnspread #handmadefurniture #coffeetable #woodworking #woodcarving #handmadehomedecor #farmhouse #suburbanfarmhouse #husbandandwife #smallbusinesssaturday #saturdayvibes #homemadewithlove #kitchentable #farmhousekitchen #farmhousecoffeetable #homegoodsfinds #farmhouseinspired #farmhouseliving

MAMA + BABY

$10 Off First Purchase: PICKDAISY

💗we are officially at 21w3d 💗 it’s crazy that over four months ago we heard her little heart beating for the first time. We landed from a 23 hour flight coming home from Italy & the very next day we’re at the doctor to make sure she was healthy and viable 💓 the second I heard her little heart beating, I knew I needed to hear that sound every day til she’s in our arms. Having 4 angel babies made our first trimester an anxiety ridden mess. When we left the ultrasound I searched online for an at home doppler and found @beginswithabeat Angel Sounds doppler. Seriously I have no idea how women, even not having MC, could live without a doppler?!! I have used this thing almost every single day. On the days I feel like I pushed myself too hard or needed extra reassurance I may have used it twice a day 😂😍 if you are on the fence of getting an at home Doppler- just do it. It will change your life, help you bond with your baby, and put your mind at ease. Use code PICKDAISY for $10 off your purchase! I’m going to put their link in my bio or you can head over to @beginswithabeat and shop their link!! It’ll be the best decision you made for the next 40 weeks 😍😍 I’ll also be going on my stories today showing you how easy it is to use and the difference between your heart, the placenta, and your baby’s heart 💗 . . . . . . . . . . #pregnancyannouncement #pregnancyafterloss #pregnancydiary #ultrasound #20w #21w #happybaby #homedoppler #heartbeatdoppler #lovenoxbaby #mthfrpregnancy #factorvleidenpregnancy #mthfr #angelbaby #rainbowbaby #factorvleiden #pregnancyjourney #pregnancydiary #babyheartbeat #addyson #pickingdaisies #doppler #fetaldoppler #angelsounds #angelsoundsfetaldoppler #4dultrasound #lovenoxpregnancy #lovenox

Hanalei Company

I have always been obsessed with skin care but now I’m soon to be a mama I have this overwhelmingly fear of just letting myself go. I give in to laziness quiet frequently & decided the few extra seconds I save not pampering myself is NOT worth it. . . Lately my lips have been super dry and I’ve been getting dead skin build up, little break outs, and my lip stick looks like shit. So I searched around for a high quality lip scrub & oil and I found Hanalei! . . Hanalei’s Sugar Lip Scrub gently exfoliates your lips using real Maui sugar crystals. Shea butter helps lock in moisture and restores softness after the dry skin has been removed. 💓 Island Ingredient highlights: -Turbinado Sugar Crystals – natural, topical exfoliant that helps to remove dry skin -Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil – essential fatty acids that relieves dryness and restores hydration 💓 Hanalei’s Lip Treatment uses pure kukui oil, which is known to moisturize and rejuvenate dry lips. Agave and grape seed oil provide high levels of anti-oxidants that help soothe and protect lips from harmful radicals. Shea butter delivers intense moisture and silkiness to lips. 💓 Island Ingredient highlights: -Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil – Essential fatty acids that relieves dryness and restores hydration -Agave Nectar – Naturally contains anti-aging properties . . I’ll be demoing how to use it today in my story! . .

They really need to warn you about ALL the changes your body goes through during & after pregnancy. Lately I’ve had a super dry scalp and my hair is coming out in the handfuls. I get it, it’s the hormones & it’s all worth it. But man, it’s hard to feel like one hot mama when you’re packing on the pounds and bad hair days are becoming the reg. . . I found @ThiqueHairCare on Instagram and after seeing everyone’s testimonials & reading how they use non-toxic ingredients I couldn’t wait to try it! All of their formulations are plant-derived and science supported, featuring natural plant extracts and the purest essential oils.  Clinically tested and hypoallergenic, THIQUE products are safe on skin, scalp and hair and work effectively to create thicker, fuller looking hair. I’ve been using for about a week now and I instantly noticed my scalp stopped flaking which is HUGE for me (no more hats). Not only that, but a week later my hair isn’t thinning as much and regaining its volume and fullness. . . If you have a dry scalp or thin hair I HIGHLY recommend you give them a shot. You can thank me later 😉 link in bio 💓 . . . . . . #thiquehair #ad #sponsored #raedunnmug #raedunmothersday #hotmamamug #hotmama #raedunndecore #displaydesign #haircare #crueltyfreehair #thininghair #pregnancyhair #showmeyourmumu #rainbowbaby #rainbowbaby🌈 #pinkblushmaternity #raedunn #postpartumhairloss #prenatalvitamins #crueltyfreebeauty #crueltyfreehair #nontoxicbeauty #nontoxichaircare #lovenoxbaby #fabfitfun #crueltyfree #shampooandconditioner #naturalshampoo #thickhair

$10 Off First Box: SPRINGLOVE

View this post on Instagram

Okay I’ll admit, I’m a #fabfitfunpartner but first I am HONEST. I just can’t feed you guys some bullshit like all these other influencers, that this box is AHHMAYYZING. Simply because it’s not 🤷🏼‍♀️ when I promote a product, it’s only because I ACTUALLY LOVE IT. And I was really disappointed in my first #fabfitfunbox. . . 1- I asked for no work out equipment WHATSOEVER (hello 6 month preggers) and received a swell bottle (aluminum based which I don’t use) and a jump rope… um okay.. 2- I asked for skin care products which I received a lot of but after looking at the ingredients and testing them out for a few days- I couldn’t use them. All of them were full of junk ingredients and LOTS OF FRAGRANCE 3- I asked for the Show Me Your MuMu robe which before, I was DYING to own. Until I actually received it. It’s super cute & I love for pictures but it is NOT worth the $90 they sell it for on their site. It doesn’t stayed tied, the material is very stiff & starchy & honestly, my $10 TJ Maxx summer robe is 10000x more comfortable/durable. . . So I’m going to give it ONE MORE SHOT with my summer box but I feel like they fill the boxes with over priced, junk items. They’re supporting brands that don’t promote health or quality but instead brands that are gimmicky and trying to sell you over priced products than what they’re worth. I’m going to share the full unboxing as well as the @thinkdirty ratings on everything I got in my stories today! . . What did you think of your box?? Fab or not?
