What guests are saying:

“Beautiful Butler City Apartment is indeed a beautiful apartment. Everything was very nice, and the apartment was a beautiful, cozy place. The couch and beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was very modern, with high quality, modern cooking utensils. Roeshel obviously takes a lot of pride in this apartment, and it shows. I was very pleased with my experience there.”
 
~Robert
 
“Beautiful apartment next to a cute down town! Our first Airbnb fell threw last minute and Roeshel was on top of getting back to us and having us stay with such short notice! So many extra touches to ensure a great stay! Lists of local places to eat and a calendar of things to do! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Definitely recommend.”
 
~Brittany
 
“Roeshel’s place was simply spectacular!! Luxury surrounded us in every detail of her space. The kitchen was a dream…I enjoyed cooking up local vegetables. The beds were super comfortable with fabulous linens. And the decor was right out of a magazine! Roeshel’s special touches made this my favorite all-time AirBnB experience. We felt so at home and didn’t want to leave. If you’re lucky enough to get to stay here, I’m certain you’ll feel the same way.”
 
~Cathy
 

Holiday stays:

“My husband and I stayed at Roeshel’s for a trip home over the holidays and absolutely loved it! Roeshel met us for a quick tour when we arrived. The whole place is filled with cute little touches and smells amazing (all essential oils). She even had it decorated for Christmas and it looked incredible! The bed was super comfy and there are throw blankets to keep warm under and a full kitchen should you need it. We would definitely stay again!”
 
~Shannon
 
“This place had everything you need and more. I mentioned to the host that I was visiting my 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter for the holidays and I found a basket of perfect toys that were placed to share with her in the space. The house is sparkling clean and the atmosphere so inviting. Everything you need to have a nice getaway! I highly recommend staying here!”
 
~Christine
 

Wedding weekend:

Butler PA wedding lodging

“My husband and I booked Roeshel’s place for our wedding weekend. We used the space to get ready in and as a retreat after our long exciting wedding day. Her space is decorated beautifully with many amenities for her guests to use. One feature my make-up artist loved was the long table/desk with built in charging station – convenient!
 
Not only did she go above and beyond with her communication and little touches but she also surprised us, not once but twice! When we arrived the morning of our wedding she had laid out a little welcome platter of fruits and drinks with a congratulations sign hung on the fire place mantle. She also drew up a cute little note on the calendar on the refrigerator!
 
When we arrived back to the space late that night after having the most perfect wedding day, we were greeted with another surprise. The entry way and stairs leading up to the AirBnB had been decorated with rose petals and electric candles. This led to a decorated romantic set up outside the apartment door along with chocolates, drinks and chilled glasses. We cried. It was the most perfect ending to the beautiful day we had just shared. It meant the world to us.
 
Her thoughtful touches, ultra clean + super hip space and her timely communication make this easily the best place to stay in the Butler area. If you are in town or just want a little stay-cation I can’t encourage you enough to book Roeshel’s space!”

Local Butler, PA friends: 

I am so honored by the recent feature in our town’s local Butler County Business Matters magazine and if that’s what brought you to DIYShowOff today, I want to extend a warm welcome, a big hug and a thank you for stopping by! It’s so fun making new friends – even e-friends! And getting to know you! I love supporting our community and small local businesses and your presence here and shares do exactly that, so thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

A little about Roeshel: 

As a home DIY and decorating blog author, Certified Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner and inspired Young Living user and business leader, I share DIY decorating tutorials here on the blog but more importantly, I love teaching that a beautiful home begins with creating a happy and healthy environment. We can do all of the pretty cosmetic renovations and fill our home with beautiful decorative accents but surrounding ourselves with positive energy and promoting emotional and overall wellness are the most important accessories. Living our best life is the most treasured “do-it-yourself” project of all.

roeshel

Before blogging transformed into a full time career in 2007, my work history included nearly 20 years of administrative support in healthcare and especially because my family history within the past 5 years dramatically changed from no medical history of cancer to include cancer survivors (4 close family members), I possess an interest in health, healing and natural approaches which led me to Young Living and the Aroma Freedom Technique. I am passionate about promoting wellness from the inside out, developing an attitude for gratitude, raising awareness for chemical free living and empowering others to achieve their goals.

You all know we use essential oils in our home and our everyday lives.

They support our sleep, hormones & emotions, muscles, immunity; we diffuse them instead of burning candles, and we even bake & cook with them. It’s the first step that really sparked a healthier lifestyle for our family and home.

desert mist diffuser and essential oils

My absolute favorite starter kit is on sale this weekend (thru tomorrow). You get a beautiful “Desert mist” diffuser which runs up to ten hours and even has a candle flicker mode. It’s gorgeous! Then you also get 11 of the best everyday oils (lemon, lavender, peppermint, Thieves, citrus fresh, Digize, Panaway, frankincense, copaiba, Raven, & Stress Away)- and don’t worry, I’ll tell you how to use every single one of them.😊 You also get a sample of our thieves household cleaner which makes two bottles of cleaner, 2 packets of NingXia Red drink, & a bunch of other goodies. You get 24/7 access to our private Facebook groups and getting all your questions about oils answered. Oh and did I mention you get a 24% discount from Young Living on anything you want in the future?(it’s like a Sam’s club or Costco membership).

The kit is normally $160 (which is THE best value because you get over $300 worth of products). NOW it’s on sale for $144 this weekend through Young Living. But I’m giving my new members $25 back on your new account to spend on whatever you want in the future. That’s $119 which is literally THE lowest you’ll ever get your kit for. *When you purchase the Premium Starter Kit using enroller/sponsor #1836762.

DIYShowOff weekly recap:

You may have noticed my absence. #life Turns out, I wound up being out of town more than I was home in December with our Jamaican vacation, the holidays, an unplanned trip to Vegas and then my MacBook decided to poop out and was sent away for repairs but … new year, new goals and I’m finally back to work! 

Happy New Year

In case you missed it, I did manage a holiday tour of the #helloredreno studio and now it’s time to pack it all up and refresh the space and get back to work on the renovation. 

wellness inspired living Christmas

New year, new goals, new you! Time to make a change towards a healthier lifestyle! I’m blessed to be a part of a community that’s been life-changing for our family. When a couple of blog friends shared Young Living with me, I had no idea how that would spark healthier lifestyle changes and steps towards a healthier chemical free home. I can’t imagine what my life would look like if they hadn’t (pretty toxic!) – so I’m can’t help but pay it forward by sharing with others. Not only the lifestyle changes, that I look and feel better than I ever have, I’m a part of a close knit community of like-minded blog friends AND if you haven’t considered a network marketing career, girlfriend, we need to chat because that income opportunity exceeds blogging income and has really inspired some personal development and amazing relationships.

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly! And Healthy!

‘Tis the season to be jolly! And healthy! And if you’re wondering where to even start with a healthier lifestyle, here’s my story. As you know, I’m a DIY girl. No fear about diving in and giving things a try. So doing the same when it comes to wellness made sense to me. This is what got me started, raised awareness and made a difference in my lifestyle:

DesertMistPSK

 

Is what you put into your body important to you? I‘m pretty sure by now that you’ve heard a lot about essential oils, right? ::groan:: and ::eye roll:: <— that was my initial reaction too! lol! What IS all the fuss about? Let me share it with you as short and sweet as I can why essential oils are all the rage for me personally. (Some affiliate links below.)

I am so forver grateful someone shared with me: When I first heard, I thought it was some temporary popular trend and I tuned it out. la-la-la-la-la!!!!!! But nearly 4 years ago on a blogging retreat, two of my blog buddies shared essential oils with me…I have a bit of an issue with traveling which causes some uncomfortable side effects (TMI! you don’t want to know) and the essential oil shared made all the difference! Oh.my.good.NESS! If it worked for that, how else? In my world at the time, my mom and sister were going through treatments for breast cancer. I was ready and open to making healthier choices. Baby steps. Just starting somewhere.

You guys, I’ve had 6 family members diagnosed with cancer in SIX years! I felt so helpless! 

DIYShowOff

Essential oils have been around FOREVER and I know that lately they’re ALL THE HYPE but I believe it’s because word of mouth spreads faster these days via social media. They aren’t new. And specifically, Young Living has been around going on 30 years! I was still practically a child (and I’m a grandma now!). That’s not anything bright and shiny and just born. And “Young Living” is THE BRAND everyone wants. Because guess what? Not all essential oils are created equal! What I really love about Young Living is their Seed to Seal Guarantee. They aren’t just buying from a supplier and slapping on a label. Young Living controls the process of planting, harvesting, distilling, bottling, labeling and shipping from their own farms and partner farms from around the world with high standards and lots of testing. In fact,

Seed to Seal

 

Young Living is the #1 essential oils company in the world. I am confident that I am getting the best quality essential oil. One other quick point about Young Living…unlike buying a cheap oil from Amazon or WalMart or even TJMaxx (be aware: even a label with 100% pure doesn’t mean that’s the case), I love that I have support, resources and testimonials from personal experiences to help guide me on my oily journey. I’ve never had to work about my health but now I’m empowered to research, to learn more and to embrace wellness. When someone tells me they tried an essential oil and it didn’t work, I’m pretty sure they tried a fragrance or lower grade, not the quality of Young Living essential oils. 

Nostalgia: Something that is really important to me … creating an environment for my sweet grandson that’s FREE of toxins. Know what else I really love? You know how a certain scent will take you back to a really special memory? I love that he is going to associate those amazing good scents like lavender or clove/cinnamon with his grammy. 

roeshel @diyshowoff grandmas rock!

What is an essential oil anyway? My first uneducated thought: “oh, some air freshening junk that maybe helps you relax, snake oils for hippies”. An essential oil is the substance created by plants for protection against damage, injury, predators, environmental/weather changes. And they work for humans (oh and my dog and that horse too) in much the same way. Whoa! I certainly never imagined that essential oils had powerful health benefits. What? Why haven’t we heard about them before? Why didn’t I know that I could grab an essential oil for relief or health support in so many ways without the synthetic chemicals or side effects? The answer to that is an involved blog post for another day but just because I never knew, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Essential oils were one of the first medicines! I’m learning so much and I’m so thankful that my friends DID share with  me because it’s made a HUGE difference in our lifestyle, our health, our finances and our home. 

 

Again, why Young Living brand? The history, the quality, the support, the selection (hello essential oils, personal care, supplements, cleaning products and so much more – toxin free products I use every day!), the opportunities (ask me how I’m going to the lavender farm for FREE this fall and how I’ve passed up my blogging income, especially when I vowed I would NEVER promote one of those work-from-home type companies). It’s rewarding having the opportunity to help others make healthier choices too. I see how it really is changing lives. And because I see that for myself personally, I really can’t help but to shout it out to you on my blog on occasion or from the top of my lungs on Facebook! “YOU need these oils too!” 

 

Recommendation:

SO here is what I recommend: THIS DIFFUSER IS THE BOMB! 3-5-10 hour settings, LED lights (including a pretty candle flicker)! Love it!

essential oils @diyshowoff

…just dip your toe in by purchasing the premium starter kit. Just try and see. This gives you the biggest bang for your buck with NO obligations. It’s the best way to give essential oils a good fair shot to see the benefits for yourself! For $160 (+tax/shipping) you get:

 
  • A diffuser: You’re going to want to diffuse your essential oils into the air so you can breathe in those health benefits and support! What I love: unlike a candle, there are no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances. I get to choose the scent I want to diffuse…something uplifting or relaxing, something immune boosting or cleansing, etc. AND I get to control the strength. A drop or two for sensitive noses, more for a POW – my house smells amazing! The diffusers are constructed of a medical grade material that will not break down with the use of essential oils. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.
  • 11 bottles of essential oils: Peppermint (cooling, great for after exercise, occasional head tension, supporting a healthy digestive system), Frankincense (supports healthy skin, meditative/spiritual, promotes a sense of well being), Lemon (energizing and cleansing), Citrus Fresh (I love adding a few drops to freshen up laundry)), DiGize (a must have for supporting a healthy digestive system), Thieves (supports a healthy immune system, very popular oil that because of it’s awesome power is also used in YL’s household cleaner concentrate, bar soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and dishwasher powder, dental products, hand purifier, etc. too – it’s SO good!), Lavender (relaxing and calming and awesome for all.things.healthy.skin!!!), Copaiba, PanAway (smells like IcyHot, great for after exercise), Raven (supports a healthy respiratory system!), Stress Away (enough said!).
  • A sample of Thieves Household Cleaner (YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!! Cinnamon/clove scent?! Yes please!)
  • Sample bottles and cards to share with others.
  • Sample Ningxia Red (super juice – POW!) 
  • A lifetime wholesale membership – sounds scary but there are no obligations to order ever again. But if you do want to, you now have access to 24% off retail prices! Hurray! Spend 50 pv ($around $50) per year to stay an active member or … hey, go inactive. There is no penalty. You just don’t order again, you walk away free and clear.
  • Friendships and support!
  • The potential to share with others and to make a paycheck – it’s just there, hanging out, yours for the taking IF you want it. No requirements. No monthly quotas. You never HAVE to ‘sell’ or share or speak a word to anyone if you don’t want to. But if you do, you might just get an accidental paycheck! Let’s discuss the details. It’s not like your usual work-from-home multi-level marketing company.
  • Access to a Rewards program IF you decide you love you oils to pieces and can’t live without MORE! Completely optional. I love it because I get things I used to buy at WalMart (but now a chemical free version) and my essential oils delivered to my door and I earn rewards BIG TIME (shopping spree!) but that’s just me.

5 Friday Favorites

TGIF! Happy Friday friends!!! Ever look at someone’s photos and wonder where the heck they snagged something so fun and fab? Me too! And I’m often asked about certain items from photos in blog posts and social media so I figured a round up of favorite things was due. Because if you’re nebby like me, inquiring minds want to know.  Some of the links below are affiliate links, some just linked for your convenience. So here goes: 5 Friday Favorites…

1. With a healthier lifestyle including whole foods and cutting way back on sugar consumption, this whipped cream maker is a must! Seriously! 30 seconds and 2 ingredients (we do heavy whipping cream and 1 stevia packet) is all it takes and I have a great dip for fruit or topping for (this) pie which my husband made and I.LOVE.it! I could eat it every single day…as as far as desserts go, it’s pretty guilt-free. You NEED this kitchen gadget! Also check out: the new ice-cream maker, brownie pan and the wine essential tools! My sweet friend Sharon, a Pampered Chef consultant, set up a party to shop from:

Oh my. Looks like I could use some food photography tips.

Any recommendations?

I might get drafted if Russ ever starts his food blog! 

2. & 3. Hey floral patterns are NOT reserved for grandmas! But yes, I’m a proud grandma and I love this floral raglan and these new ‘roses’ shades are my favorite this summer.

4. And this next one I bought for working out but recently paired it with a cardigan. Perfect for a girls’ night out, right which is almost like going to the gym. It’s up and off the couch. So very similar, right? Besides. it’s so cute and well, you COULD wear it to the gym, so versatile too!

5. And last but not least, I made up some foaming hand soap recently with the help of my trusty sidekick and little grand buddy. He is so sweet! He’s back to being two time zones away so I sometimes watch this video daily to get that kiss. ::hold me:: 

 

No video bells and whistles…adding video editing course to my list of things to do but really, we were just hanging out and decided to do a video. isn’t he a natural? lol!
