I told y’all I wasn’t done with Real Oil…
You may recall my previous post regarding the “ready-to-apply” roll on oils (see Real Oil’s Essential Oil Beauty Kit) but this sampling experience was slightly different… Not because I loved the products any less (I am still straight up obsessed with them), but because I decided to try their diffuser as well! And I will admit, the Beauty Kit still has my heart…but my newest collection is a real close second.
First things first, here, is what I tried:
Yoga Blend | Sweet Orange, Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Sandalwood, Jasmine
Zen Blend | Sweet Orange, Lavender, Cedarwood, Pine Needle, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang
Re-Align Blend | Black Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Howood
And here, is what you need to know:
The oils are your typical oils…they do all the great things. And I couldn’t pick a favorite if my life depended on it. The Re-Align is very earthy, floral, and woodsy; whereas the Zen is a mix of spicy, and sweet. The Yoga on the other hand is fruity and warm. Ugh, even describing the scents puts me at ease!
And then there’s the diffuser…truly my favorite part of the order. The sleek, clean design brings me an odd amount of satisfaction. And with only 3-6 drops of your choice of essential oil, your whole home can smell just like your favorite yoga studio.
And so it goes…my continued addiction to these products. And I don’t see it ending here. I’ve got my eye on the Home Essentials Kit next. I never could say no to Eucalyptus and Lavender.

This year, Alex and I decided to host Friendsgiving! Which is kind of like Thanksgiving, except with friends instead of family, and a lot more booze (at least that’s our tradition). Now, I hate to host anything without decorating a little…mostly because I love to decorate, but also because I want to set the mood. No matter what the occasion may be, I want the party to feel like the holiday. The feeling that holidays give you is a huge part of the fun, and I personally believe heightens the memories you make!
With that being said, I’m always ballin’ on a budget. Meaning I don’t have all kinds of money to just throw around (can I get an Amen?). So my goal was to pick up a few simple things that are versatile to the season (AKA can be used again) but will also have a big impact on the overall vibe.
What I walked out of Michael’s with:
5 pine branches
2 medium mason jars
1 small mason jar
6 extra small glass jars
What I already had:
2 table cloths
Tea light candles
Total investment: $45… Not too shabby if you ask me.
I put two branches in each medium mason jar, and one in the small, to create simple, yet festive centerpieces for the tables. Accompanying the centerpieces were the 6 extra small glass jars, filled with tea light candles to enrich the experience with a subtle glow. What I love about tea light candles is that you can buy a decent size package of them for very inexpensive, and then continue to replace them as they burn throughout the night! I prefer to buy scentless for occasions like this, so that the smell of the candle doesn’t interfere with that of the yummy food. Just a personal preference!
What is y’all’s go-to for budget-friendly holiday party decor? Your thoughts are always welcomed and encouraged!!
Thankful for you all.
