Hi! I’m Hope Leilani! I love Jesus and wildflowers, making DIYs, trying new recipes, hand lettering, singing, playing ukulele, embroidery, and reading! I also love nature, gardening and bohemian/ minimalist style. I’m a health conscious teen who is constantly trying new face masks and homemade beauty products! READ MORE
The cheery and festive holidays have passed by already, but it is still cold outside, and I’ve been warm and cozy inside! I have a delicious spice – and – everything – nice face mask recipe for y’all that is just faintly warm, and if you accidentally get some on your lips, it is very sweet!
The cinnamon and nutmeg in it help with acne, and encourages a healthy glow, while the honey soothes inflammation and redness. The lemon juice helps to promote clear skin and make blemishes disappear. And… READ MORE
After the holidays, we normally end up with sore throats, runny noses, and coughs. Why? Did you know that you can cripple your immune system for up to five hours after eating sugar! ( Study from HERE) Also, it’s a fertilizer for cancer- meaning it feeds the cancer cells in your body. Yikes. I’m not trying to scare you, but we need to be educated about this stuff! Please research about the effects of sugar on your body and learn about it. Join me in your New Years resolutions to cut processed sugar out of our diet for good! Some great sugar alternatives are coconut palm sugar, honey, maple syrup, and stevia.
Now onto the recipe! I got it from my awesome friend’s blog, Maddi, at anaturaladventure.com. These are great for soothing sore or scratchy throats, and they taste like little candies! Made with Young Living’s Lemon and Thieves essential oils, it helps boost your immune system! READ MORE
Apparrently, avocado toast has been the new rave on social media. I decided to make it again because I missed it! It is a super easy, nutritional, and delicious breakfast (or lunch) to whip up with all different kinds of toppings! READ MORE
I’ve wanted to try smoothie bowls for a long time. Their colors and beauty catch my eye every time and they are so packed with antioxidants,vitamins, fiber, protein, and much more. We have no frozen fruit in our house right now, ( or fresh fruit that would be good in a smoothie😂) so I found a smoothie bowl with banana and coconut from the Half Baked Harvest website. I’ve altered the recipe a bit to our preferences ( and ingredients we have in the house). Smoothie bowls are so easy, quick, and versatile. The recipes for them are really just a suggestion, because you can add all kinds of toppings and extra fruit, etc.. Also, this is a great recipe to make the night before( since coconut oat mixture must sit in fridge overnight) and to make the Quinoa Nut granola the night before also. It makes it a super easy breakfast to throw together in the morning with little mess! So let’s jump into it now! READ MORE
2018 has been an abundant, blessed and memorable year full of trials, joy, change, and growing. I’m so excited to see what God has in store for us this year- 2019!! “You direct me on a path that leads to a beautiful life. As I walk with you, the pleasures are never ending and I know true joy and contentment.” Acts 2:28

It’s New Year’s Eve already!! This year has gone by so fast, and was full of blessings, abundance, and big changes! I pray that y’all have an abundant blessed New Year, and accomplish your goals and dreams!! I looked all over Pinterest for a good New Year’s Eve resolution paper and a 2018 year review, but I couldn’t find anything that I liked. So, I decided to make them myself! I hope you enjoy! These are images you can print out, since I had a little trouble attaching a PDF to this post.
These little ornaments are so fun and easy to make! This is a great family Christmas craft to do altogether with a cup of hot cocoa, Christmas Spirit diffusing in the air, and Christmas music! Click HERE to see DIY!
