All About Me

Hi, I'm Lea B. 

I'm so glad you found me. I started this little blog of mine in January 2013. I wanted share easy ways to use and do things that often appear very difficult or overwhelming. I am not sure who is learning more, you or me, but I'm glad we're doing it together! 

I know you're going to love the DIY beauty & body care recipes and essential oil information, like this and this. Not to mention book reviews and craft projects like here and here
