Easy Homemade Furniture Polish

Easy Homemade Furniture Polish Banner

Hello Lovelies:

When I was little, one of my favourite chores was polishing the furniture. Put in a little elbow grease and all of the tables and shelves looked fabulous! Plus, the smell of lemons was to die for. These days I still enjoy making my bookshelves shine (my books are kind of my most prized possessions). But I prefer to avoid the conventional stuff and opt for a homemade furniture polish.

Why would I make my own? For one, it’s super easy and works wonders! But I’m also concerned about my husbands asthma and my skin. That lemon smell I liked so much happens to be artificial… and fragrances do not blend well with asthma (and really aren’t good for any of us – I’m a fan of knowing what I’m inhaling). My skin has no issue telling me what it likes and dislikes either, and certain cleaners leave me with an icky rash, polish included. So I like to keep it healthy and simple! Which is why I love making this 3 ingredient homemade furniture polish. And now you can too!

Gluten Free Waffles With Blueberry Syrup mshealthesteem.com

Hello Lovelies:

Have you ever had a craving that just won’t let go? A need to find a way to create something delicious that you’ve been dreaming of? That was me for the longest time… dreaming of gluten free waffles.

I’ve been drooling over pictures of homemade waffles on Instagram for ages! It has been eons since I enjoyed a waffle breakfast. They kind of went to the wayside when I had to go gluten free. Many of the gluten free waffles out there either made my stomach sad or didn’t meet my ingredient standards. Still, I had hope that I would one day create a plate full of healthy, delicious waffles.

So I finally invested in a waffle maker and went to work! And I just love what we came up with…

Changing your diet can seem incredibly daunting and it can be difficult to know where to start.
