My favorite things this week:
this essential oil diffuser
This winter has been one illness after another in this house. J. has had I-don’t-know-how-many sinus infections, G. had strep and the flu at the same time, B. has battled upper respiratory infections and asthma, and as I write this, I’m home sick with strep.
We use our Zaq Noor diffusers– we have two- for lots of different things, but lately they seem to be working overtime diffusing essential oils to help ease the symptoms of our sicknesses (or to hopefully help others from getting sick). There are a ton of different oils, and combinations of oils, out there that we use for specific situations, but my favorite resource for oil information is everything essential.

this way we watch TV without cable
We’ve had our roku for about a year and a half and I seriously can’t recommend it highly enough. We don’t have or want to have cable, but we still have shows that we like to watch. The roku connects to our TV and allows us to stream Netflix and Hulu, as well as Amazon Prime Video and several other channels, ranging from children’s shows to workout videos. We even have an ESPN channel, which allowed us to watch several college football games last Fall.
this photo editing app
What app do you use to edit photos? I’ve really only ever used one, Afterlight, and it offers everything I could want. Afterlight allows you to crop photos and adjust clarity, exposure, brightness, and more. The app also has tons of different filters that can be applied to photos. I don’t edit every photo I post, but I do clean most of them up with Afterlight.
this floor cleaner
Why oh why did it never occur to me to buy a floor cleaner that is applied directly to the floor? We’ve always used either a) a store-bought cleaner that is mixed with water that you dip your mop in or b) a combination of water, vinegar and essential oils that, again, you dip your mop in. And it was always gross to me, that I would mop a section of the floor and then dip the dirty mop in the water, swirl it around, and then “clean” some more.
That’s why I had to try this Method squirt and mop floor cleaner. It works exactly the way the name implies: squirt the cleaner straight from the bottle onto the floor and get to mopping. If your mop needs to be rinsed during the mopping process, just stick it under running water in the sink. No dirty water to spread across your floors, just a light lemon ginger scent.
