Less Work More Zen

With crazy work schedules, and home lives, I think we could all agree that we need a little more peace in our lives.


Zen gardens are great when you need a little time to relax and take a moment to yourself to just literally ZEN OUT.  Don’t settle for some boring zen garden though.  Add some color and style to your zen and your home/office/space.  Draw around aimlessly in a vase of colorful sand.  Doodle and design.  Take your mind off stress and worries.  Relax.

Check out wendiland on Etsy for great modern alternatives to Japanese Zen Gardens.  Itty Bitty succulents and furry moss balls in little beds of goodness.   The cactus is your obstacle and the sand is your peace.

Is water your garden of choice or sand?

Less work, more zen.  You deserve it.

Spray The Bitch Away


I don’t know how your Monday went, but mine was a typical Monday.  If only there was something you could spray into the air that could chill everyone out.  Now you can with Frankie & Myrrh!  Check out Spray the Bitch Away Aromatherapy.

To help with PMS, hot flashes, menopausal issues, and overall general bitchiness, Frankie & Myrrh combines a variety of essential oils that induce a calming effect and help to ease muscle tension.

You may wonder what essential oils are in this glorious spray?  Lavendar, Bergamot, and Frankincense provide the calming effect, with added hints of Rose Geranium and Clary Sage for prominent notes.

Spray the Bitch Away is a light perfume with a purpose.  Always breathe the aroma as you are using it.  Use as a body mist, room freshener, car freshener, or linen spray.  You can even carry it in your purse as a hand-sanitizer, or use it to help repel insects (insects cause bitchiness too, don’t forget).

Spray near co-workers, friends, and relatives as needed.  Spray it into the air and let them soak it in.

See ya later bitch!

Stock up on Spray the Bitch Away Aromatherapy Spray at Frankie & Myrrh’s Etsy shop.  $18USD (not too shabby for essential oils!)

I drew up some optimism this morning while I was drinking my coffee. I hope that everyone knows that things always get better.

I have not been posting much lately. I’m sorry to any of my followers. I have been going through some personal things myself, but plan to get back on the posting wagon soon. Love you all.
