Mrs. Meyers – Get your free Mrs. Meyer’s Set ($35 value)

Recently, I started using aromatherapeutic household products, and they clean while being kinder to my home and the environment. I have been using Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Multi-surface Everyday Cleaner (Basil scent). Basil is said to revive the senses, clear the head and calm the nerves. Made with plant-derived ingredients, natural essential oils, and a birch bark extract. It does not have parabens & phthalates, glycol solvents, formaldehyde, or artificial colors. I recommend these products.


Listed below are the tools I use to keep this site and my other sites running.  If you want to start your blog or website, I highly recommend these products.

Testing all the tools and services, even if they are free, takes tons of time. But time is not the only problem. You are also putting your newly created blog into a risk every time you install a new plugin, and fixing the technical issues is not the best way to spend your time as a new blogger.  

In this curated list, you will find only the tools and services which I used and can 100% recommend to you.
