Disclosure: I received the products mentioned below to review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would benefit my followers. All opinions are my own and those of my family. Please see my full disclosure policy at the end of this page.  

Being a home educating mother to three wild children blessings, I find myself needing a little "mom time out" on occasion.  Anyone pickin' up with I am layin' down? 

 I know about 2 pm I am looking for just a little something sweet to kick up my afternoon.  I have found the PERFECT little gem for you today! 

The Macaron

 Have you had them?  They are an art in of itself. 



Being a party gal myself, I have heard of the Sucre' Shop out of New Orleans before tasting their perfect confections. Now you can too!


These little pieces of goodness are a married combination of little outside crunch with a smooth middle.  I could not believe all the flavors that were offered in their Signature Macaron Collection.   With flavors like chocolate, hazelnut, almond, pistachio, bananas foster, strawberry, pecan and salted caramel a girl can't go wrong! 


Just look at all those yummy ingredients in this salted caramel macaron! 

 Can't you just taste it?

After checking out their website, I was thrilled to see the variety of gifts available (think holidays my friends!).  I was especially drawn to the Kings Cakes!  PERFECT for our school Mardi Gras celebration!

 Check out this recipe!  You can try to make these lovely's right in your own home! 

If you could use a little pick me up or maybe just a late night sweet then you are in luck!  The Sucre' Shop New Orleans is allowing me to offer 1 Complete Signature Macaron Collection to one my followers!  It's so easy to enter!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
