How to Care for your Aria Diffuser

I've had my beautiful Aria for well over a decade! And it literally brings me joy every single day! It's beautiful to watch and it has a strong diffusing pump. 

Over the last 12 or so years, I have only had to replace the ultrasonic mist maker twice. When I replace it, the diffuser begins to pump like it's brand new! If you have an an Aria and it's not diffusing big puffs, simply change the ultra sonic mist maker disc.

Simple Maintenance for Longevity

How to Keep Your Diffuser Pumping Like New

Once you have the new disc, remove the old one from the center of your diffuser. Keep the ring that holds the disc in place. Discard the old disc. Replace it with the new one. Secure the new disc in place with the metal ring.

Now use and enjoy your diffuser like you always have!

Essential Cleaning Tips

Keeping Your Diffuser Clean for Optimal Performance

It's important to clean the inside of your diffuser with a toothbrush or a diffuser brush occasionally. Keeping it clean will help extend the life of your disc.
I clean mine with the Thieves hand foaming soapbecause it's gentle and effective on stains. I use this brush to get the details cleaned.

Be careful not to get water into the motor. If you get water in the motor, there's no hope for the diffuser as far as I know.

Water Quality and Maintenance

Why Distilled or Purified Water is Best for Your Diffuser

If you keep your diffuser clean, use low mineral water like distilled or purified, and change the disc out about every 5 years, your diffuser should last you a very long time!

Capturing Your Life in Photos

I adore having beautiful photos with the ones I love. In fact, I believe it's important to take bookoos of photos with my family because it's the photos that will trigger memories of our sweet life together later. Howeve
r, finding the perfect outfits for those photo shoots can be a big pain. Anyone else feel that way? 

Well I recently discovered a website that rents a variety of brands. Yes, RENTS! That means you can rent and enjoy something that might be out of your budget to purchase. Or if you're like me and you also don't like having an overstuffed closet, clothes rental might be perfect for you, too. So now let's look at how to select photos for your photo shoot.

  1. Choose a Mood: Take a moment to understand ther mood you hope to capture. Are you going for a casual outdoor session, or a formal portrait? Playful or serious? Understanding the context will help you narrow down your options and create a cohesive look that complements the overall vibe of the photos.    

Capturing memorable photos with loved ones is an invaluable exercise in preserving moments, but often the dilemma of selecting the perfect outfit can dampen the excitement. The essence of a successful photoshoot lies not only in the genuine smiles but also in the cohesiveness and aesthetic of the attire selected. Renting high-quality clothing has emerged as a savvy solution for those seeking variety without the commitment, ensuring you and your loved ones look your absolute best without compromising on style or budget.

To achieve a picture-perfect look, several factors come into play, including the mood of the shoot, flattering color choices, and attire that compliments your body type. A deliberate approach to selecting outfits—not just for aesthetic appeal but also for comfort and suitability to the photoshoot's location—can significantly enhance the overall outcome. Avoiding over-accessorizing and opting for clothes that exude confidence will ensure that the focus remains on the people in the picture, capturing the essence of the moment.

Ultimately, creating visually striking and meaningful photographs is a creative endeavor that requires attention to detail. From understanding the theme of the shoot to carefully planning outfits that reflect each individual's style while adhering to a cohesive look, every choice contributes to the narrative of the photos. Embracing this process allows for not only beautiful images but also an enjoyable experience that celebrates personal style and the joy of togetherness.
Creating memorable photos with loved ones is a cherished activity that captures the essence of precious moments. However, the challenge of selecting the perfect outfit for a photo shoot can often overshadow the excitement of the experience. The concept of renting outfits offers a practical and stylish solution for those seeking variety without the commitment of a purchase, making it easier to achieve a look that matches the desired mood and setting of the photo shoot.

To ensure that one's outfit complements the photo shoot, several factors need careful consideration. Selecting attire that resonates with the theme of the shoot, choosing colors that enhance one's natural beauty, and focusing on flattering silhouettes are pivotal steps. Additionally, the importance of accessorizing thoughtfully and dressing appropriately for the shoot location cannot be overstated, as these elements collectively contribute to the visual cohesion and overall success of the photos.

Ultimately, comfort plays a critical role in exuding confidence and grace in front of the camera. Choosing comfortable clothing not only ensures ease of movement but also instills a sense of confidence that is visible in the final images. By judiciously selecting an outfit that aligns with these guidelines, individuals can effortlessly showcase their personal style while creating lasting memories captured through the lens.
Discovering the perfect outfits for cherished family photo shoots can feel like a daunting task. Yet, with the emergence of services offering the option to rent a wide variety of clothing brands, this challenge becomes far less formidable. This innovative solution not only aligns with those mindful of budget constraints but also appeals to individuals desiring to keep their closets uncluttered, making it easier to style your photo shoot without permanent additions to your wardrobe.

Choosing the right attire involves several key considerations that collectively contribute to capturing the desired mood and essence of the photo shoot. Factors such as selecting a cohesive mood, opting for colors that make you feel beautiful, dressing according to one's body type, and accessorizing with subtlety all play pivotal roles. Moreover, the shoot's location significantly influences the choice of outfits, emphasizing the importance of comfort, practicality, and the integration of the setting into your overall look.

The end goal of any photo shoot is to create visually stunning memories that reflect the unique styles and personalities of the participants. By thoughtfully considering elements like the theme, colors, fit, accessories, and location, individuals can effortlessly curate outfits that complement the visual storytelling of their photos. This approach not only enhances the quality of the photographs but also ensures a more enjoyable and confidence-boosting experience during the photo shoot.

Candles versus Diffusers

I wish I had known this information when ALL my kids were little. Once I made the switch from candles to diffusers coughing came to a screeching halt in my home. Following are several reasons I switched my candles for diffusers.

Organize Your Dishes

Welcome to my China closet, one of my favorite spaces in my home. 
This little space used to be a thorn in my flesh.
The door is in an awkward place and is constantly open.
Pantry foods in disarray once lives here. It felt like a dirty closet opened for everyone in the house to look at all day....
