Happy November! It's officially "holiday season"!
Isn't it? Is there some official person that decides that? Well, I've decided it for the rest of us...and I'm SO FREAKING EXCITED!
For once I've actually been thinking about gifts early this year so I wanted to share my findings! Do you have an essential oil lover in your life? Want to share YOUR love of oils with your family and friends? I've found the coolest gifts any essential oil addict would love. Bonus points - many of these products are sold by small businesses and mom-preneurs...my favorite kinds to support! Many of them have been kind enough to share discount codes with my readers so be sure to head over to their sites and show them some love! You won't be disappointed and neither will your friends and family!

For the Oily Kiddos in Your Life
These snugly stuffed animals are essential oil diffusers for snuggling! Place 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil onto the "brain" and place it into the pocket located at the top of the head between the ears. Simply snap the pocket closed, hug, snuggle and sniff. These are the perfect gift for little ones who need some extra help falling asleep at night or just need a little extra lovin' some days!
You can get these silly little faces in several different styles and colors and in 2 different sizes. I recommend the gift set with the most adorable companion book "Sniff The Earth"! We just got our set and I can't wait to give it to Miss Mak for Christmas! Hallie and I have been sneaking snuggles and reading the book ahead of time!
This shop is closing on November 13th (maternity leave for the mom-boss!) so be sure to head over there SOON and get your order placed! On November 4th and 5th you can save 20% on your entire order with the code: SMELLYSALE20
Another diffuser option for the kiddos (or a kid at heart!) these adorable animal diffusers run for 8 hours and are the perfect addition to a little one's bedroom. You can even add a water bottle to it to work as a humidifier on sick or dry days.
We have Rosie the Pig and LOVE her!!
For Your Stylin' Friends
What if you could bring the benefits of your oils with you all day long, while looking beautiful! I love diffuser jewelry - they are so practical but so pretty too! This shop has several beautiful necklaces and there are even more on Etsy if you search around!
This is the perfect gift for your mom or BFF or anyone who wants a little extra oil
with them every day!
I've got an obsession lately with tees and tanks with fun quotes and sayings on them! I recently purchased this "oils & coffee" tank from Oils all the Time and I wear it constantly! Super comfy, cute, and a great conversation starter! This mama owned shop has other great shirts with oily sayings as well as really cute labels for your oil roller bottles!
Get 20% off the entire shop through Nov. 30th with this code: HOMEFIELD
For the Diffuser Addict
This is the PERFECT diffuser if you're shopping on a budget! For just $15.99 you get a long lasting (up to 6 hours) mist, an auto shut-off, and MY favorite - changing colors! I think kiddos would love this but I would love it too! I have a friend that bought this exact one recently and she is loving it!
This is the CADILLAC of diffusers you guys. It's way at the top of my wish list - I know several people who have one and love it, and I totally want it for my living room! It has the obvious diffuser component, but also a water fountain AND a bluetooth speaker! This would be awesome for an office too! By far the coolest diffuser I've ever seen!
Fun Stocking Stuffers
Who wouldn't want to drink their coffee out of this awesome mug every morning! This is another one on my personal wish list! Essential Oil Style is another small business that I LOVE to support. Aside from this killer mug, they have dozens of great shirts and other accessories to fuel your oil addiction.
They are offering 10% off your total purchase through Nov. 30th with the code: HOMEFIELDESSENTIALS
These are a personal favorite of mine, hand made by my very talented cousin! They hold 3 10ml roller bottles and are great for keeping your oils with you on the go! I've got one of these in my diaper bag and one for the kiddos too!
Taking pre-orders through Nov. 30th - email me to place your order!

What's on YOUR oily wish list this year?
Admit it - New Years Eve and you start thinking about all of things you'd like to accomplish/improve/do/stop doing next year. 45% of Americans typically make some sort of New Years Resolutions each year...and over half of them ALWAYS fail at them! Why? How can YOU be the exception?
Here it is - the secret.
ACTUALLY SET GOALS.
No, your "This year I'm going to lose weight!" resolution at midnight after a few glasses of champagne doesn't count.
Sit down, think about what you truly want to accomplish, WRITE IT DOWN, and be sure that it is measurable.
The top 3 resolutions this year are (1) Lose Weight (2) Get Organized (3) Save More/Spend Less Money. I can tell you right now why nobody succeeds at these resolutions. Because HOW will you KNOW if you actually did succeed? The key is setting a SMART GOAL. You can read more about them HERE.
When setting your goals, make is something SPECIFIC that you can focus on throughout the year, and you can reflect on at the end of the year and say "YES I did that".
One of the things I love to do at the end of each year is to sit down with my husband and reflect on the previous year and talk about our plans and dreams for the upcoming year. It's a great way to get on the same page about our family, personal and career goals so that we can support each other in the coming year!
Here are a few of the goals I've set for 2016
If you're ready to CRUSH your 2016 goals, whether they are related to fitness, healthy eating, budgeting or organizing, I've got the class for you! This all free, all online course is YOUR WAY to "Get it Together" in 2016. We'll equip you with the support and tools to make 2016 your best year yet! The virtual doors close on January 4th, 2016 so be sure to RSVP TODAY! It starts January 11th!
Thanks for being a part of my life in 2015, I look forward to an amazing 2016 with you!!
After taking a much needed 6 week blogging break I just HAD to pop back in to make one last post in 2015! Thanks for hanging out with me on Facebook and Instagram over the holidays! 2016 been an amazing year! My family has moved, made some new amazing friends, accomplished so many of our goals and are so ready to springboard into another awesome new year! Since we last talked, we've had a blast hosting our very first Thanksgiving (with a table of 11!), wrapping up the year with recruiting and holiday themed fitness classes and road tripping to Colorado for a nice long Christmas vacation! Being with family over Christmas has been absolutely amazing, especially now that there are little kids in the picture! My sister has a daughter just a bit younger than Little M and having those cousins together for Christmas was just priceless! It felt so good to be in Colorado for a while - feel that COLD winter air, play in the snow and of course get some really good runs in! I sure do miss running in Colorado!
I know Christmas has come and gone and we're all done thinking about gifts for a while, but I just had to share a couple of the awesome running related gifts my family got me this year! They sure know me well!
I've got lots to be excited about in the coming weeks (and year!) Here are a few things I'm most looking forward to!
Have a happy New Year! I'll talk to you again soon!!!
It's great to see you! I'm Alyssa and I blog about all the things I've found "essential" in my life as a fit mama and football coach's wife. You'll find all kinds of fun stuff here like workouts, oily info, football stories and more!
