Disclosure: PR sample, Young Living distributor; see bottom for full disclosure I’ve fallen down on creating new essential oil recipes in the last few months as a result of our move.

Zoya Jubilee Collection

Disclaimer: PR sample, see bottom I’ve got swatches of the Zoya Jubilee Holiday collection today, and yes, I know I’m so late on posting a holiday collection! December was crazy! And the last four weeks, my 10-month-old and I have been sick, back and forth. Ugh. But rest assured, these polishes didn’t become useless immediately …
