Urban Nest Apartment Makeover Series

Featured

Hellooooo my DIY loves! It’s been forever! Not to say we haven’t been busy over here at DIYShowOff behind the scenes. 2020 was a crazy year but I love when there’s a project in the works to keep my brain busy. There was an amazing apartment makeover in the works and now that it’s nearing completion, I have SO much to share with you in the way of a before and after Cinderella transformation story. I can’t wait!

See me in this corner? All comfy cozy. It’s where the Urban Nest design dreams began. Notice the walls, the blue industrial carpet, The need for a lamp left behind by previous owners because the only window in this empty room is on a door to the left. Just me, sitting here with a dear friend and her cat, walking around an empty ugly bare space, visualizing potential. My thoughts running wild, my creativity inspired, my mind’s eye seeing the future. Where to put a kitchen? How to create a dream spa bathroom? Knocking down walls, putting in a window, all.things.design to create a beautiful luxury retreat space in my little hometown. Our favorite pastime…creating pretty spaces, right? 

Fast forward to this year. The same corner…

What?! Can you believe it?! A stunning modern kitchen with open shelving, white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, subway tiles, gold accents. LOVE! Oh my gosh. Prepare to be wow’d!

So stay tuned. Lots of before and after photos coming your way and a happily ever after renovation with more details on how to get away, see Urban Nest up close and personal if you’re looking for a charming small town getaway in western PA.

It’s so good to be back! 

2020 Catch Up

Featured

Hellooooo, DIYShowOff friends! I know. I know! “What the heck, Roeshel?!” It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. What a crazy year it’s been, right? I’ve been itching and wanting to get in here to post but … LIFE. You know how it goes. Things have been busy and I’ve been pulled in so many directions (bringing it on myself, do you do that too?) and I’ve neglected my little slice of cyber space. But here I am! I’m ready to catch you up, my faithful followers and friends, my DIY buddies. And gasp! A blog post with no lovely pin-worthy photos this time around but stay tuned because this girl is back! Here’s what’s been going on with me. It’s been a whirlwind!

Wellness Inspired Living – It’s been over 6 years of discovering Young Living and making healthier choices and 3 years ago today (bring on the champagne!), we closed on a property in the city of Butler. It wasn’t in my plans but when opportunity falls into place and things just work out, you go with the flow, right? I wasn’t property shopping or looking and I didn’t stress over it. I stumbled across it. I met with the owner. He was so sweet, so cute and there was a connection over the character and charm in the old building. I told myself if it was meant to be, it’d happen. And it did! #helloredreno was the beginning of creating a space for my wellness and short term rental business and it has been a blessing to so many with educational workshops, a place to support an amazing team with small wellness events and changing lives. It’s a blast! It’s a mission so dear to my heart. I love my circle of oily friends! My love for the roller coaster experience with this amazing network marketing company because making a difference in raising awareness for building a strong immune system is as strong as it ever was! 

Suite Thyme – with Wellness Inspired Living on the main floor, the upstairs was an empty shell of un-utilized space. I knew I wanted to renovate “someday” to create a short term rental where I could host out of town guests and contribute to our small town. My original mindset was much like our house … DIY makeover as time and money allow. Well, you know how that goes. There’s never EVER enough time or money to complete a large scale project and nothing was being accomplished. I think that’s why God introduced me to one of my best of friends, Shelby from Suite Retreat Bed & Biscotti from right across the street. Full of life, motivation and a huge adventurous spirit bigger than life, she gave me the advice and little push to make it happen, to get my butt in gear and a little over a year and a half ago, that empty upstairs shell transformed into Suite Thyme and was listed on AirBnB and VRBO. First year of business is always a little rocky, especially when you throw “lockdown 2020” into the mix but I have to tell you, hosting out of town guests has become one of my favorite things to do! I love being a part of inspiring beautiful memories and making getting away special for others!

Thyme & Mint. Those things inspired some beautiful connections with the creating of personal wellness retreat options. A collection of carefully curated intention collections with The Lunar Fae (my amazing daughter, Evangeline’s etsy shop) providing reiki infused crystals and The Witchn’ Kitchen (a sweet friend who opened up shop on the adjacent corner of Wellness Inspired Living (essential oils) /Suite Thyme) … all things herbal knowledge providing bath soaks, these collections are created with lots of love and personalized intention. We also partnered up to provide options for creating a personal wellness retreat including private yoga sessions by Healing with Amber; crystal healing, guided meditation, sound baths by The Lunar Fae and The Wandering Bramble, Aroma Freedom with Wellness Inspired Living, tea leaf readings and herbal/energy consultations with The Witchn’ Kitchen. We’ve had wonderful positive feedback on the collaboration of these services and put so much care and love into offering up these one on one self care packages. 

WoW. I’ve had the best time getting to know Shelby from Suite Retreat. Down the street is another women owned business, a quaint antique boutique shop called Then & Again and Forever. Wellness Inspired Living and Suite Thyme on another corner. And when The Witchn’ Kitchen opened up along with Bent Oak Plant Co. across the street, and All About ReClaimed, — a boutique/wellness/shopping/lodging district was born! We call ourselves Butler Women of Washington (our street) or WoW and are on a mission to support women owned business, work together providing fun vendor events and local festivals and to inspire revitalization in our community. 

Oh! And I’ve been having the time of my life helping with designs on a new short term rental space. Simply helping a friend with decorating and design decisions and it’s starting to come together. I know I’m going to want to LIVE there. It’s unfolding into this beautiful magical happily ever after makeover story. I plan on sharing some crazy before and after about it as soon as it’s ready. Exciting! 

So whew! A lot going on, right? 

And you know my heart is filled with so much love for my grandson and you guys! He’s turning 6 years old already this month! SIX! Time is just flying by! Know what else? He’s getting a brother in less than 2 months!!! This mother of two girls is going to be a grandmother to two boys! I am so excited! I am so blessed! I can’t wait!

2020 is also the year I turned 50. Oh.my.goodness. A big milestone that’s gotten pushed aside. A lot of reflection. A lot of gratitude. March 2020 didn’t allow for a big celebration. We haven’t felt comfortable booking a celebratory travel destination either. But I’m looking forward to finishing out the year on a positive happy vibe and making the 5th decade of my story the best chapter yet! 

Okay. Back to DIYShowOff. With so much going on, I’ve neglected my passion for maintaining a beautiful home. Projects half finished, rooms cluttered and un-used, things feeling blah and boring. I miss surrounding myself with cozy comfort, seeing my home as my favorite safe haven and have a new desire to freshen things up and to resume my DIY lovin’ habits. Maybe a little ‘nesting’ with a new grand-baby on the way (?) but I am SO ready to dive in and get things done!

First up I’ve been working to downsize my closet. You guys, there are still professional work clothes from at least 10 years ago hanging untouched in the dressing room. And my craft room? It’s like a sealed vault. I haven’t opened that door in well over a year or more. We have a man cave creation in progress that’s been on hold. And remember one of my very first DIY makeovers…that bathroom with the painted floor? It’s time to give it some grown up DIY with tile! 

Time to clear out the clutter that’s weighing me down. There’s no two week tropical vacation in our December this year (boo) so I’ve decided to move full speed ahead into creating an in-home oasis. For me that means, out with the things that no longer serve us and changing up rooms to utilize and make the most of our entire home. Those early DIYShowOff room makeovers are feeling old and tired and I’m ready for some good old budget friendly DIY to change things up!

What’s new with you? I’m so ready and so happy to get re-acquainted and can’t wait to see what’s new with you!

Baby Shower Gift Basket Tips and Inspiration

Featured

There’s nothing more precious than a new baby and putting together a collection of sweet baby gifts can be so meaningful for parents-to-be! I love shopping and gathering up gifts to create a beautiful arrangement and I’m all about a pretty presentation. I thought I’d share a few I’ve made this past year to help inspire you if you’re stuck or looking for some examples to go by. Some affiliate links included. 

diyshowoff baby shower gift basket tips and inspiration

Baby Shower Gift Basket Tips

Tips for personalizing a gift for a new little person makes if feel so special, right? Here are a few tips to help:

  • Registry – most parents-to-be will share their baby shower registry. Try to choose a few items from their hand selected wish list when possible.
  • Gender – it’s rare that we don’t know this ahead of time and completely unnecessary but if you do know, it does narrow down options. 
  • Name – even more rare, but if it is known, I love to add something monogrammed – specifically, I love adding a wall art letter or creating a personalized iron on decal. 
  • Theme – a lot of the time, the baby shower invitation will give a hint to the nursery theme or design style … elephants, owls, woodland, boho, Noah’s ark, etc.  
  • Parents’ hobbies, collections, lifestyle. Do they love the outdoors (fishing? hunting?), love their dog(s)?, have a favorite sport’s team? 
  • Your signature piece – for example, I’m all about wellness so I try to include chemical free, natural, organic options when I can. 
  • Diapers & board book – baby showers now will often host a special raffle for bringing one of these items. I always use a pack of Honest newborn diapers in the bottom of the basket to lift the gifts. Either way, diapers are SUPER helpful and adding a favorite children’s story or baby board book to create a library of bedtime stories is one of my favorite things to add. 
  • Gift wrap a few of the items with coordinating wrapping paper. I often use what I have on hand. It doesn’t have to be specific baby shower themed. 

Baby Shower Gift Basket Inspiration

Here are 5 baby shower gift baskets I’ve put together to help inspire your next baby shower gift. 

Girls: 

EMMA

Emma’s mommy’s favorite color is purple and she designed an owl themed nursery. My dear friend waited a long time for this precious miracle and I am so happy for them!

Easy DIY Summer Cooling Spray Recipe & Tutorial

Featured

It is HOT out there! Our local forecast promises a HOT and humid week. No worries! I’m going to share my favorite way to keep cool and chill out with an easy DIY cooling spray.

DIY cooling mist

Reasons you need to make cooling spray this NOW for you and your family members.

• It’s hot outside! As a result, you might be feeling over-heated.
• If you’re hot, you’re sweating. Yuck. Doesn’t hurt to spritz on some good smelling lavender and peppermint! lol
• If you’re overheated, chances are – you’re cranky. A ‘lil lavender for calming is going to help!

DIY Keep Cool / Chill Out Spray

Supplies I use:

I included some affiliate links.

• 2 oz. amber glass spray bottle (or adjust recipe according to the size spray bottle you have on hand)

• Witch hazel

• Distilled water
Peppermint essential oil*
Lavender essential oil*

* I only use and recommend Young Living essential oils! Quality matters!

What I do:

I fill the bottle half way with witch hazel, then the rest of the way with distilled water (to where the bottle starts to curve, NOT to the bottle neck or completely full, leave room for essential oils. I then add 4 drops each of Lavender and Peppermint. No worries if you get an extra drop or two, no worries if you’re running low and only have 3 drops. The nice thing about DIY is you control the strength and can alter the recipe as needed.

Lavender Essential Oil

The Swiss army knife of essential oils! SO many amazing benefits! Off the top of my head – supporting healthy skin, so a good choice for a body spray. AND as most of us know…relaxing and calming. So hot = cranky pants, add lavender = CHILL (CALM).

Young Living lavender

Peppermint Essential Oil

Another good one with so many benefits. It supports a healthy digestive system, soothing after exercise (dilute and apply topically), etc. But one other benefit is … it’s COOLING! For all things that cause me to overheat, I keep this bottle handy. Peppermint = CHILL (COOLING).

peppermint essential oil

Tip:

It is not necessary at all, but I store it in the refrigerator to give it an extra cooling boost!

Easy to grab and go, throw it in your purse or backpack. Having a cookout or going on a picnic in the park? Toss it in the cooler.

How I use it:

Shake and spritz myself, then spray the back of my neck.

Head’s Up:

Avoid your eyes! Peppermint stings! IF you do get it in your eyes, grab some coconut or a carrier oil, some fatty liquid and flush. Water will not help.

When I use it:

When temps are up, summer heat! Outdoor events, going to the park, going on a walk, run or hike, doing yard work, working outdoors, when air conditioning isn’t available or isn’t working, when the power is out and the a/c and fans aren’t an option, picnics/BBQs, at the pool.

IGTV

It WORKS! When I made this video, I spritzed myself then had to adjust the a/c. I was cold! Brrr!

Watch the tutorial on IGTV HERE!

Not a member of Young Living yet?

You guys! I know you’ve heard of essential oils by now. Maybe it feels overwhelming? Sounds expensive? Whatever your reason, I’d love to answer your questions and address your concerns.

#1 Quality:

It does matter and Young Living has a 25+ year history and is the pioneer of bringing back and raising awareness for using essential oils. Check out the Seed to Seal guarantee and pillars.

#2 Where you get them matters.

Maybe you’ve had a bad experience with MLMs, therefore maybe you feel that going to the store is a better option because you steer clear of network marketing “scams”. Well, with a 25+ year history and the fact that scams are illegal, Young Living doesn’t fit that description at all. And you wouldn’t avoid your friend who waitresses at your favorite restaurant, right? Of course not. You’d want to be seated in her section, tip her extra and show your support. Same thing! PLUS! When you connect with a friend who’s passionate about Young Living, you’re going to have access to an amazing community of thousands who love and use the products and share their real life experiences as well as educational resources to empower you to actually know how and why you would use the products. You have a friend to hold your hand as much or as little as you want to make the whole ‘healthy lifestyle’ less overwhelming!

#3 Membership

Purchasing a Young Living Premium Starter Kit is NOT agreeing to selling anything. It’s there floating in the background as an option of your membership but completely your call. No pressure, no obligations. It’s NOT agreeing to purchasing regularly or ever again (of course they have an optional rewards program for those of us who do that can be canceled at ANY time without penalties). There is NO yearly fees. You guys, we have a SAMs Club membership. $45/year. Over a year year time frame, we’ve paid $450 for the privilege to shop there and not really anything to show for it. With Young Living, you buy a premium starter kit, you have lifetime access to 24% off retail prices. That’s it. Not to mention the starter kits are the best bang for your buck. When I need to restock, that’s usually the route I go (hello, $400+ worth of product for $165 = smart)!

#4 Young Living Lifestyle

Young Living is about so much more than essential oils (although they have a HUGE collection and oils you can’t purchase anywhere else). Example: we started choosing products with non toxic ingredients. Building and supporting a healthy immune system is SUPER important! So I simply switched from buying the following at the store to purchasing them with my Young Living membership (ask me how I get 25% back in rewards):

Young Living products

• Cough drops and chest rub
• Insect Repellent
• Dental care (toothpaste, floss, mouthwash)
• Natural deodorant
• Nose rings! yep! – personal essential oil infused diffuser rings
• Shampoo and conditioner
• Clean makeup! Yep! EVERY thing you need!
• The best skincare I’ve ever tried in my life
• Supplements (Vitamin D, C, B and more!)
• Baby products (wipes, lotion, wash, shampoo, diaper rash cream, etc.)
• Pain cream
• Sunscreen and After Sun Spray
• C B D oil + C B D muscle rub
• Household cleaner (plant based that we use on EVERY surface of our home)
• Foaming hand soaps + bar soaps
• Bath bombs, body wash, lotions
• Hand sanitizer (that doesn’t burn and is so moisturizing)
• Hormone support – I have NO issues at age 50 or for the last couple of years and I know it’s because of what I use.
• Laundry and dishwashing soaps
• Kids’ collection (pre-diluted essential oils)
• Pet line!
• Energy and anti-oxidants with Ningxia Red (love Ningxia Zyng for an afternoon pick me up too)

I could go on and on! I love that there is so much to choose from to create a beautiful safe environment for my family!

Get Started:

So, which kit are you going to go with? My recommendation: The Premium Oil Kit + Aria diffuser (it’s a gorgeous statement piece, ART!) with soothing sounds, glass dome, speaker (plug in your phone!), light options, and a remote!  The Desert Mist diffuser being a close second with great settings too (lights, candle flicker mode, 3-5-10 hour settings, automatic shutoff).  

Young Living starter kit options

And when you purchase one of the Premium Starter Kits using my referral #1836762 at YoungLiving.com HERE, I’ll invite you in to our circle of wellness inspired friends who will embrace you! I’ll plug you in to our beautiful Facebook communities. I’ll get my favorite educational resources to you so you have guidance. I am personally available to you as a mentor and friend. I even offer a special welcome bundle for DIYShowOff friends that varies month to month. This month: I’ll give you 10% back on your order and reimburse your standard shipping. OR if you’d prefer, we can chat and I’ll personalize your welcome bundle to suit your needs.

Wishing you well!

Stay COOL, HOT friends!

Staying at Home with Young Living

Featured

Hello, DIYShowOff friends! 

stay at home roeshel

How are you holding up? Hanging in there? Adjusting to the new routine of staying in if you can, homeschooling, getting things done around the house, binge-watching Netflix series, getting outdoors? Are you a part of an essential business and working long hours? If so – thank you so much for putting yourself at risk to serve others. You are so appreciated!

thank-you

 

As a blogger, small business owner, AirBnB host; a little has changed in my routine. No travel means no business for the AirBnB but I’m grateful to continue to work from home with my blogging. My wellness workshop is closed but the Young Living side of my business continues online. 

roeshel suite thyme

At first I felt a little helpless, wishing there was more I could do. Then I realized that I can absolutely continue to serve and bless others through Young Living. I know. I know. Network marketing. Believe me, it wasn’t for me either. I have zero sales skills. I didn’t have a background in direct sales so my opinion was based on hearsay so I wanted no part of it. I simply purchased the products because a friend shared and the essential oil I tried worked. Ever hear someone say that Young Living has been life changing for them? That’s my story too. 

diyshowoff family

Why? I was introduced six years ago at a time when again, I was feeling helpless. Two very close family members were diagnosed with breast cancer (with no previous family history and negative gene testing). So, it’s evident that the environment and lifestyle choices are a contributing factor. And it made me take a look at my lifestyle. I’ve been blessed with good health my entire life, but I knew my unhealthy choices would likely catch up with me one day. At that time, it made me realize that I didn’t want to put off that healthier lifestyle to “some day” when I’d be in desperate need of making changes and I didn’t want to look back and have regrets. 

So, Young Living became that baby step in light of the wake up call. I began switching out the harsh chemical-laden products in our home. Around the same time, my husband who does the cooking was starting to incorporate healthier eating habits and we started looking at supplements for whole body support. And shortly after, I had a grandchild on the way and knew that it was time to stop smoking once and for all. One thing led to another. I’m still a work in progress but I am confident that just those changes have made a difference for us. For the past six years, I’ve haven’t experienced feeling unwell at all. ::knock on wood::

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Young Living. What is this company? Young Living has been around for more than 25 years. They are the pioneer and world leader in essential oils. They have a seed to seal guarantee, meaning they control the entire process of bringing us everyday products. They aren’t purchasing something and slapping on a label. They have strict guidelines when it comes to ingredients, farming practices and more. 

diyshowoff essential oils uplifting blend

How it works. To me, it’s similar to a SAMs Club/Costo membership. We have a SAMs Club membership and pay $45/year for access to shop their store. Over a period of 10 years, we’ve payed $450 to shop there. I have an ID card to show for it. With Young Living, I purchased one of the starter kits. Now I have a lifetime membership to wholesale pricing (24% off everything) with no yearly fees. No obligation to sell. And a premium starter kit for $165 is a diffuser, 12 essential oils and some samples – so a LOT to show for what I spent. 

diyshowoff young living premium starter kit

I have to share the business opportunity since at a time when so many are stuck at home without a paycheck and maybe considering an online/work from home business at this time. If you’ve been looking at companies that you think would be a good fit, I believe Young Living is a good fit for ANYONE, for EVERYONE! Check out the Young Living income disclosure statement HERE. It works well with just about any hobby. And most importantly, Young Living provides products that everyone uses and needs! Consumables. Jewelry, nail polish, leggings, cookware, etc. – those are all fun and I support anyone who puts themselves out there with creating their own business and brand (when it aligns with my lifestyle) but If you’re into yoga, oils are a great fit. If you love to cook, the vitality line is a great fit. Love to decorate? A beautiful home begins with a safe environment. Like makeup? Savvy is a beautiful safe collection! Wellness is for everyone! 

diyshowoff chest roll on recipe

Purchasing one of the starter kits is all it takes. Did you know there’s even a basic kit option? How many businesses do you know you can start off with just a $35 investment?

So what’s the catch? Monthly sales quotas to remain a rep? No. Big fees to stay active? No. Young Living wants you to be a product of the product. So all that is required in a month that you do have a bonus/commission coming to you is that you purchase 50 pv (approx. $50 order) monthly of products you choose and use personally to earn fast start and sign up bonuses of the people you enroll or a 100 pv (approx. $100) to earn commissions. Young Living has one of the best compensation and ranking plans. They’ve implemented new Silverbound incentives. AND you have an entire team for encouragement, inspiration, motivation, education and training and support. An amazing group – maybe even some bloggers you’ll recognize! 

diyshowoff keep calm

We use our diffuser daily. I was a designer candle junkie but wasn’t really aware or didn’t care about the toxic ingredients and synthetic fragrances I was breathing in. Until I knew better that even a small step in a healthy direction makes a big difference over time. Not only does my home smell pretty, I can diffuse essential oils with a purpose. Lavender or Peace & Calming for relaxation and sleep. Thieves for cleaning the air and supporting a healthy immune system. A combo of lavender, lemon and peppermint for season support. So many options! 

peppermint essential oil

Some of Young Living essential oils are labeled for dietary use. So instead of reaching for something I bought at the store with side effects or chemicals, I can grab DiGize for supporting a healthy digestive system – all things digestive! Or have you heard of the health benefits of Frankincense? I add it to my Ningxia Red (a juice for supporting a healthy immune system and energy) daily. 

young living supplements diyshowoff

Do I have to purchase regularly? Will things just show up at my door and be deducted from my bank account? No. They DO have an Essential Rewards program that is completely optional. And since we do purchase regularly, we’ve opted in. I earn 25% back on my monthly orders and that adds up fast! There are monthly promotions that have stocked our supply or introduced us to something knew. We simply ditched what we were buying at WalMart and switched to buying the better healthier brand from Young Living. Here’s a list of a few things:

  • toothpaste
  • mouthwash
  • deodorant
  • household cleaner concentrate
  • hand purifier 
  • makeup 
  • lotion
  • shampoo
  • condition
  • supplements!
  • essential oils
  • baby wipes
  • diaper rash cream
  • pain cream
  • CBD oil
  • muscle rub
  • massage oil
  • cough drops
  • hormone, emotional, immune support 
  • laundry detergent
  • dishwasher detergent
  • fruit and veggie cleaner
  • acne treatment

Young Living Thieves products

If I give it more thought, I know I could go on and on. So in love with the variety of products available!

empower the women around you diyshowoff

I also love the community that comes along with it. Rather than wondering what does this oil do?, I’m a part of an amazing supportive group of friends to hold my hand. I had no idea where to start. It all seemed so overwhelming – a good reason for my procrastination. But having access to the educational resources and community for support has been a lifesaver! That’s one of my favorite parts! So who you join under does matter. And I would be honored if you chose me. I’ve been a part of Young Living for six years and want freedom and purpose and abundance and wellness for everyone! It really has made a positive impact on me, my family and so many. I want that for you to.
