You guys. Dandelions have TAKEN OVER OUR YARD. We mowed on Sunday and they are already a foot above the grass. One day, I was feeling pumped up and began pulling a crap ton. Those roots are insanity. And they almost gross me out. It’s like pulling a dozen thick worms. And then there are spiders and other creatures everywhere. And the roots just break most of the time as you pull them. So it’s not even satisfying. And that means they are going to grow back. It’s so frustrating. And all these people on my instagram told me I need to leave the dandelions because the bees need them. Which I 100% get. But we have neighbors who have the most beautiful lawn on earth and I’m pretty sure they were hoping for neighbors who would actually care for their lawn, unlike they’ve had in the past. I don’t mind having a couple dandelions, but that just isn’t possible. When there is one, there is about to be one thousand. That’s just a simple fact. What the hell to do?

Moving on. After living with carpet for the past year and now having only wood floors…omg. It grosses me out. I might as well keep sweeping and mopping every single moment of every single day. I can’t imagine what our carpet looked like deep inside. And how do people with dogs that shed A LOT keep up with that sh*t? Jackson sheds a good amount, but they are small hairs so you can’t see them as easily. And the hair still drives me absolutely nuts. But for real, the floors are always dirty. Have any of you bought a Rumba? I think that needs to go high on our priority list. Probably after furniture since we don’t have that yet.

I just found the best self tanner ever. EVER! My calluses may be brown, but whatever, at least my skin is a little darker without tanning beds!

My eye will not stop twitching. Two days now, two freaking days.

Wait, back to the house stuff. Stop getting distracted. I’m so excited because since we’ve ordered furniture, placed an order with a friend to make our dining table, got a new mattress and started working on the bedroom, I’ll soon have some house furnishing posts for you! Spicing it up a little bit. There will still be lots of food, fashion fridays and workouts, but now there will be a little home decor ideas as well! I recently started posting pictures of my vanity area in my bedroom, but that still needs a couple touches. So I think I’m going to talk about my mattress I got recently. Because it’s amazing. Have you ever heard of intellibed? It’s a non toxic, gel material bed that has amazing back support and helps regulate blood flow. When I started doing research about beds when we moved into our new house, the stats about this bed and all the amazing feedback won we over. I seriously had no idea how toxic a mattress can be. Frightening.

But get this, I’ll even have a discount for you guys. Yessir. I’m working with this company to save you money and get you sleeping a healthy, deep sleep. Sofreakingpumped. But until then, drink this. Because it’s delicious. And inspired by Ginger Newtrition adrenal cocktail which uses cold pressed orange juice, collagen, and salt to make the most delicious drink. This time I just spiced it up a little bit! Thanks for the inspiration, you amazing health coach you!

    We used to use a conventional lawn service and we had a beautiful lush lawn with no weeds, but I hated all the chemicals they used. We now use an organic service. It takes a little longer to work and doesn’t quite get all the weeds, but it’s good enough. And when my dog rolls around out in the grass I don’t have to fear that I am poisoning him. Plus you’ll still get to pull a few dandelions for funsies. Good luck!

    I’m always looking for a good self tanner. I recently tried Nature’s Gate Sunless Tanner and I love it. Try it out…no nasty chemicals 🙂

    I loooooove my Roomba! Best purchase ever hands down.
    I also wanted to say I’m loving 2015 positive Juli, it’s infectious 🙂

  4. Eva says:

    We got a Roomba BEFORE we got most of our furniture in our new house (seriously like day 8 of living there) and it was the best purchase ever. We have all hardwood floors and a dog too, and I couldn’t even sweep up the hair – it would just fly around and land back on the damn hardwood. The Roomba gets it all – serious lifesaver. Plus it’s fun to watch the dog run away from it.

    Want to get the Intellibed after your recommendation!! Do you know about when you will have a code? Our house burned down here in TX last Thursday and we need new mattresses ASAP and I remembered you recommended these!! Thanks so much!!!!

      OMG I’m so sorry! That’s absolutely terrible! Funny you wrote that because the post was suppose to go live yesterday, but we are finishing up some small details to bring you more than just 10% off your bed! At the latest, the post will go live on Monday. Can you wait until Monday? If you can’t, email me at and I will get you in contact with intellibed right away. I absolutely don’t want you to have to wait longer, but I also want to make sure you get the extras other than just the 10% off!

    Does the self tanner stay on or does it run or come off when you sweat? I’m drenched with sweat when I run and during my work outs. Self tanners I have tried in the past come off and it’s on my clothes and the towel I use to wipe the sweat off me. Thanks!

    1. juli says:

      stays on!

      1. lisa says:

        That’s awesome! Thanks for answering.

    You know, I’m really surprised no one suggested seeing your chiro for your twitching eye. I too had a twitching eye for probably 6-9 months and finally asked my trainer about it. Have your C1 adjusted. It did the trick for me. It took a couple weeks though! Good luck!
