May the 4th Be With You (and these diffuser blends!)

I’m ashamed to admit it took me 38 years to truly watch and appreciate “Star Wars” and all its intergalactic glory.

Granted, I’m only 27, but that’s still no excuse.

I heard of the franchise long before I became a fan, but I never took a major fascination with the sci-fi franchise until later in life. Fun fact: George Lucas is actually from my hometown! (He walked the same streets! He breathed the same air!). That blows my mind to think about now, but preteen Kassi didn’t feel any which way about it. In fact, I had a school field trip one year where we went to watch one of the prequels in IMAX … but to this day I can’t remember which one it was and it clearly didn’t make a big enough impact on my life (again, it was a PREQUEL, but I also blame my lack of knowledge of the “Star Wars” universe at that point in time 🤦🏻‍♀️).

But all of that changed when talk for “The Force Awakens” began to build and I knew I had to give into the hype. So a long time ago (2015), in a galaxy far, far away (my apartment), I powered up my droid (my laptop) and entered the world of Star Wars (that’s when I hit play). I started with Episode I, but I always wonder if I should have started at Episode IV in order to view them the way they were released slash intended. (But then I remember I’m one of those people who hates when people watch things out of order or start halfway through sooo let’s just say I started at “The Phantom Menace” for my peace of mind 🤷🏻‍♀️haha). Plus, I mean, I already knew the whole ‘who’s your daddy’ reveal, so there was nothing to spoil in regards to that.

Nowadays, I’m a self-proclaimed Star Wars nerd and will immediately befriend anyone willing to strike up a conversation on the franchise — anything from who shot first, ewoks (love ‘em or hate ‘em?) and ultimately, which film reigns superior. (For the record, it’s ‘Empire’).

And in honor of May the Fourth, I put together some fun diffuser blends!

Bust out your diffusers, put these on blast and May the 4th Be With You!

happy spring!

I hate the sunshine. There, I said it 🤭 I love downpours and Christmastime and all things winter, so the minute those little pink flowers start blooming and the sun peeks through the clouds, I get super nostalgic for those three frigid months of cold. (By frigid I mean 50-60 degrees. I’m a Californian, what can I say 😬 However, I do think snow + I would be besties). I’m probably in the minority on that (sorry to all the sun enthusiasts out there), but lately I’ve been trying to focus on the parts of spring I actually love:

1. Easter + Jesus!!!
2. those chocolates that look like little eggs but are coated in different pastel colors but aren’t the Cadbury creme eggs and does anyone actually know what I’m talking about??
3. alllllll the citrus essential oils (I’m looking at you, orange, grapefruit, lemon + tangerine)

bring on the citrus 🤘🏼

I love adding a drop or two of a Young Living Vitality citrus oil to my glass water bottle for the flavor + antioxidant boost!

ps — how cute is this water bottle from Target!? I got it in the dollar section and it comes in a bunch of other colors so I bought this one and a white one because $3 for a glass water bottle is cheap and look how cute!!

**I only recommend ingesting Young Living Vitality essential oils since those are specifically made for ingestion. Also, make sure you’re using glass when ingesting an eo!**

aaaaaand:

4. all the happy music! — technically happy songs are always available, but something about spring makes me want to bust out all the upbeat tunes + have 24/7 dance parties.

Speaking of music, I create a playlist every season based on what I’m listening to, what’s new or what feels right for the season. I made a Spring 2019 one that I’ll be adding to throughout the season AND I also made a ‘dancing in the kitchen’ playlist (filled with every upbeat, feel-good, sing-a-long tune I could think of) … *applause erupts* I know, I know, you’re welcome *takes bow* 😜 I’ve tested that last one out and can confirm it’s A+ material for all your kitchen dance parties or for belting out in the shower 👍🏼

What are you listening to lately?

Happy listening and happy spring! xx Kassi
