Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils

Carley Hall crunchy mom eco friendly essential oils mama blogger

THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED AS OF APRIL 2019 --- When was the last time you walked down the cleaning aisle in your local grocery store? You typically come across an overwhelming wall of choices for each area of your home. There are surface cleaners for the kitchen, bathroom, or living room, all in different bottles. It's pretty much all the same harsh ingredients, marketed to you in different packaging, making you think you need different products for different rooms. After the birth of my son, I re-evaluated our habits and started researching more natural ways to keep our home...

BayBee Boutique is now...

Carley Hall baybee boutique careha + co mama blogger

Well, the time has come. I've been teasing this on social media for a few weeks now, but truth be told, I've been wanting this change to happen for nearly two years. BayBee Boutique will be no more within a matter of months. In its place, I am introducing a new brand; one more reflective of our goal to support mothers and their littles.  Introducing Careha + Co., a new lifestyle brand for mothers. I will focus on the ups and downs of motherhood through social media, blog posts, and natural postpartum and baby products.

A Mama’s Self Care Journey: Part 1

A Mama’s Self Care Journey: Part 1

I am sitting in the doctor’s office right now waiting for my appointment, and I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I have a suspicion that I am suffering from hyperthyroidism or anemia. I have a history of anemia so that makes sense, but the symptoms I have been experiencing the last two months have to be more than just anemia. Although this post is “all about me” it is very much about mothers in general. We tend to put ourselves on the back burner compared to our children and our significant others. I let myself go, I didn’t practice...
