The benefits of essential oils! As featured in the October Box. October 07, 2016 00:00

It's that time of year! Crisp mornings, cozy scarves & pumpkin spice latte's. This months Bliss Box was all about Fall, pumpkins and a touch of Halloween decor! One of my favorite things about Fall and the holidays are the sights and smells and if you didn't happen to notice that amazing scent coming from your Bliss Box delivery, it was the Young Living essential oils sampled by our contributor, Jenna Herrig with Young Living.  Jenna is graciously guest posting for us today to offer up some of the amazing benefits of essential oils in your home.

Without further adieu......

 

Hello, Hello! Bliss Box Followers! I am Jenna and I will be sharing with you all about Young Living Essential Oils. You may have received some Young Living samples from me in your Hello! Bliss Boxes. Maybe you were wondering what these little things are? Stick with me, and I will lead you on the best health journey with Young Living Essential Oils.



I joined Young Living Essential Oils in November 2014 and I am so glad that I did. Young Living has been so beneficial in my life and for my friends and family too. I didn't start out wanting to do the business side of Young Living, I just wanted to experience their oils and products for myself, Clinton and our fur-babies. Soon I saw AMAZING results that I could not keep my mouth shut. I just had to share with everyone! First, I wanted to create a chemical-free home. Second, I wanted something to assist me with my weight loss goals. Along with clean eating, exercising and some Young Living oils and products, I am seeing some fun results! Third, I wanted to escape the 9-5 lifestyle and to have more free time to spend with my husband and our friends and family. ​I absolutely love sharing and educating others about Young Living Essential Oils. I absolutely cannot wait to share with all of you more about this wonderful lifestyle that you can experience too.

 

 

 Young Living is the world leader in Essential Oils and they believe that everyone deserves to live a life full of abundance and wellness.  Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Essential Oils are extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come. Any time you hold a bottle of Young Living’s powerful essential oils, you hold nature's pure essence. https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/discover

    How to Host a Favorite Things Party April 01, 2016 08:30

    Guest Contributor: The Momerie - www.themomerie.com

    One of my favorite springtime activities is hosting a Favorite Things party – have you heard of them yet? They are nothing short of fabulous. Basically you hang out with your closest friends, eat lots of yummy food, share and gift a favorite item and leave with the same amount of brand new items gifted to you!!  I told you it was awesome.

    Today, I am going to share all my best tips and tricks on how to host a fabulous Favorite Things party – it’s easier than you might think and so much fun, you’ll be making it a yearly event for you and your besties too!! First things first,

     Pick a date and pick a theme:

    I prefer my parties on Saturday in the late-morning myself – its perfect because you can have a brunch type menu, which is so versatile and allows for pretty much anything – breakfast, snacks, appetizers, desserts, no food is off limits! It also provides a consistent turnout, probably because it gives guests time to still enjoy the weekend with their families and is usually a day free of obligations. That said, any day and or time will work as long as it is convenient for you and your guests.

    With any party I like to pick a theme (blame my college days) and maybe it’s just me, but themes just make get-togethers more fun. So a Favorite Things party is no exception. I have heard of awesome ones focused around the kitchen, or where all items must be beauty related, even holiday inspired themes like “no tricks, just treats” – which was for Halloween and was all about food items! I’m a fan of the basics. A simple “like it, love it, gotta have it” theme is straightforward and easy for everyone to comply with – basically just bring your most liked, can’t live without item.

    As far as invitations go, I have found that sending an evite or paperless Post is the easiest and most cost effective. I like to go big, so I shoot for a guest list of about 15-20 people – it’s a manageable number of guests when the weather is good and I can host outside, but you may find that a smaller group of 10-12 is easier to visit etc.

     Set your price range:

    I have attended other favorite things parties and each one had a different dollar value and a different number of items to bring – for example, $20 per item for 3 items, or $5 per item for 5 items. I personally like to set the dollar amount at $10 per item for 5 items. The key here is for everyone to spend the same amount and that each guest brings multiples of the same item. I like to ask my guests to bring all items unwrapped, then you can see everything up for grabs on the table (it builds suspense!) However, you can have all the gifts be wrapped up and unseen too, if you choose this method everyone will have multiple presents to unwrap. Both ways are fun, its really just a personal preference of wrapped versus unwrapped.

     Plan the food:

    If you are a Hostess with the Mostest and like to do all the menu planning, prepping and cooking yourself – by all means fly solo on this one. However, I prefer to go pot-luck style and ask each guest to bring their “favorite” appetizer or dessert, along with multiple copies of the recipe.

    1) This takes the pressure off me to plan food for a large number of guests.

    2) Everyone is able to try a variety of new dishes and take home recipes of their favorites.

    3) You get to see what everyone’s favorite dish is

    I take care of all the beverages – infused water, ice tea, wine and usually some type of fun alcoholic concoction for everyone to enjoy.

    From experience I have found it wise to provide take out boxes so my guests can take home extra food as well, that way I’m not left with a ton of left overs that would likely go to waste. This year I was inspired by Pinterest and made glitter rimmed glasses in my guest’s favorite colors as a favor – which were used for the mimosa bar (because who doesn’t love a cocktail that’s acceptable to drink first thing in the morning).

     

     

    Making the exchange:

    There are so many ways to go about exchanging all the goodies. The method I prefer (which is both easy and straightforward) is to have everyone write their name on a several pieces of paper – if you asked guests to bring 5 items then they will write their name of 5 separate slips of paper. I ask everyone to do this as they arrive – that way it is done and out of the way from the get go. You don’t want to be chasing people down or having any issues once its time for exchanges.

    When you are ready to exchange go around and have each guest draw 5 different names out of the bowl (one for each item they brought) – making sure they don’t duplicate names, or take their own.

    As the host, I like to start the exchange off by introducing my “favorite thing” and why I think its so fabulous. Then I read off the five names I drew from the bowl – those are the people who get my item. Each guest follows and by the end you should have five different items – all other people’s favorite things. The whole process is really fun. Imagine a scene from one of Oprah’s giveaway shows where everyone is screaming and cheering and totally freaking out – it can get kind of like that…especially over the must-have items!! And every year, without fail, there is always one or two items that everyone wants and people bend over backwards for. Usually at the end of each party a fair amount of trading takes place – a candle for a nail polish, for example. All with those must-have items…  This was my haul after some trading:

    Other popular items included:

    • MAC lip gloss set
    • Wrapping paper
    • Bounce dryer bar
    • LUSH Bath Bombs
    • Selfie sticks
    • Cookbooks
    • Makeup brushes
    • Nail polish drying drops

    I like to include cute bags with notepads in them, that way if you love a favorite thing and aren’t lucky enough to be drawn for it, you can make sure to go out and get it yourself or use as ideas for future items. I guess a cell phone picture could work just as well, but these are just so cute…

     

    That’s pretty much all there is to it! Everyone always has the best time at these parties, and looks forward to coming each year – which is part of the reason my guest list has grown so much, people tell their friends, and they want to be a part of the fun too!

     (Special thanks to The Momerie for sharing her FAV party idea with us! Make sure to visit The Momerie at www.themomerie.comfor more great party ideas, tips & mommyhood tricks).

    Make your own tea diffuser- EASY! February 10, 2016 08:55

    Did you simply fall in love with the Mermaid Blend tea by My Beauty Tea featured in February's "Retreat" themed box?  We secretly think it gives us fins.... plus who doesn't love to be a mermaid right? Many of you may not have a good ol' tea diffuser sitting in your kitchen we so wanted to share a super easy-peasy way to make your own out of tin foil!

    STEP 1: The essentials

    (Tin foil, loose tea)

    STEP 2: Add loose tea to a small 7 x 6 piece of foil

    STEP 3: Gather and twist into a turnip shape, tea should loosely fill the bottom of the shape

    STEP 4: Poke small holes on the bottom on your turnip diffuser with a knife or any small pointed object. You will want the holes small enough that the loose tea cannot escape yet large enough to bring in enough water to steep the tea's flavor.

    STEP 5: Fill your mug with steaming water (carefully) dip & bob your homemade diffuser in the water allowing for the tea's flavors to absorb in the water. At this point, you could also use kitchen tongs to dip your diffuser so as not to burn your fingers.... diffuse until the color of the water starts to change and your desired flavor is achieved!

    Aaahhhh.... sit back and enjoy the rest of your goodies from February's Bliss Box!

    Easy Salt Dough Ornaments! November 18, 2015 10:30

    Looking for something EASY & FUN to do this holiday season? Salt dough ornaments are the perfect "kid-friendly" kitchen activity for that cold day. Give them as gifts to friends, family or the neighbor next door!          Ready, Set, GO!

     

    Ingredients:
    1 cup salt
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 cup luke warm water
    Toothpick
     
      
    Directions

    1. In a large bowl mix salt and flour.

    2. Gradually stir in water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.

    3. With your hands form a ball with your dough and kneed it for at least 5 minutes. Use a rolling pin dusted in four if needed.

    4. Lay out some wax paper, cover in flour and bring out those favorite holiday cookie cutters! Use plenty of flour so your ornaments don't stick while forming them.

    5. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and make a small hole with the end of a toothpick to attach the string or ribbon to hang your ornaments with once dry.

     6. Bake at 200 F until your creation is dry. The amount of time needed to bake your creations depends on size and thickness; thin flat ornaments may only take 45-60 minutes, thicker creations can take 2-3 hours or more.

    (You can also your salt dough in a air tight container and you will be able to use it for days).

    Lastly, (here's the fun part), paint your creations with acrylic paints or glitter, Modge Podge whatever! and seal with varnish or even a clear nail polish.

Well for starters we literally have been bursting trying to keep this months artisan goodies a surprise  (as we do every month) but it never gets any easier especially after we snap a few brand partner photos!  Maybe a few "Sneak Peeks" here or there but really we want to show you all what's in store but we get it.... the surprise really is half of the fun right? PLUS, it's now November and we had our first heavy rainfall here in California YAY! 
    A delightful excuse to wear warm winter boots and scarves to work.
    Our team puts a great deal of thought into what goes into our Bliss Boxes and this month was no exception.... What will fit with our Destinations theme? What shades go well with this brand partners design? What skincare could our fans really use this month?  As always, we hope you enjoy November's box themed "Destinations" as much as we did curating it for you! We can't wait to see your #helloblissbox or @helloblissbox fan photos!
    Be Blissful

    FALL IS IN THE AIR AND WE'VE GOT AN ITCH TO BAKE!

     

    This easy fall recipe is sure to please your family (and your wallet) with ingredients you probably have sitting around!

    FALL APPLE CRISP

    5 large (peeled) apples sliced into cubes

    2 cups of oats (Quaker or like brand)

    1 cup of brown sugar

    Cinnamon to taste

    1 stick of butter

     

    Spread your cubed apples in a 9 x 13 pan. Combine all dry ingredients and spread generously over your apple lined baking dish. Melt your butter and drip all over your ingredients! Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes! This is such a yummy recipe it can even be served hot or cold (like you can't sleep and grab a bite to eat out of the fridge at 3am cold). VIOLA'


    It's FALL Ya'all! September 24, 2015 11:03

                         
    Fall is such an amazing time isn't it? The leaves turn and we can't wait to bring out cozy scarves and sweater knit lined boots!  Sometimes I literally count down the days until the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte makes it's presence into our local coffee shop (and don't get me started on the "red Starbucks cups"!  Our packing stations are a little cooler with crisp California air blowing in through the windows.  It's time to start working on your fall bucket list... maybe one for you and one for the kids? September's box was full of cozy fall essentials including this hand knitted coffee coozie by Knot Unraveled in perfectly coordinating fall shades topped off with a gold sparkle heart. October's box is not to be missed with everything indulgent.... ahem, we hate to give away too much info but the October box "may" include chocolate whaaaat???  We shall see..... until then, enjoy these beautiful crisp fall mornings ya'all!

    Sit back and take it all in..... September 03, 2015 13:24

    It's shipping week here at Bliss Box and we're cranking out boxes all week long. With all this rushing around, it is so fitting we decided to sit back, take a break and relish in sweet naptime smells.  Isn't this what life is all about? Enjoying the special moments, hoping the little's don't grow up too fast and making memories?  It is so perfectly fitting with our September box theme "Fall Reflections". Sit back, relax and take in the sweet smells of what Fall brings.  Enjoy~


    Where do you find inspiration? August 17, 2015 12:26

    August's Bliss Box quote:

    Did you know every Hello! Bliss Box comes with a 5x7 inspirational quote?  The inspiration behind this sweet sentiment in every box is to make all women feel special, something to remind them of who they are and to always feel our best (even when we don't). These fun cardstock quotes are meant to be saved (or framed) and placed in the most conspicuous of places.... i.e. the bedside table, refrigerator, your desk at the office or even in your car on long commutes to work.  Let's get creative for a minute... what if you took that quote and left it at the park for just the right person to stumble upon and brighten "their" day?  A co-worker or deserving neighbor may benefit from some wise words.....  you just never know who's day a happy quote will improve!  Replace each months quote with a new one~ Be Blissful


    How we do what we do! August 10, 2015 12:30

    So what exactly does shipping day mean here at Hello! Bliss Box? Lots of coffee, good tunes & shipping tape of course!  A few fun facts:

    • We go through over 10 pounds of shred filler every month
    • We fold and assemble our Bliss Boxes ourselves in our own shipping center
    • We don't use a fulfillment company (we want to make sure each and every box goes out assembled in precise order)

    We acquire all of our brand partners months in advance and stock amazing products well before our shipments run.  Then, we assemble our boxes and each months contents about 1 week pre-shipment. We confirm all orders, seal packages and print shipping labels and lastly we email every anxiously awaiting subscriber their tracking info!  WE LOVE OUR JOB!
