Instagram Care Package | Sweet Friend | The Indie Chic Blog 

Hello readers, I hope you all had a amazing weekend, I know I did! 

Friday I received a wonderful package from a very sweet Instagramer who reached out to me in response to my posts on my page about pain. Her daughter suffers from the same bladder condition that I have and she very kindly spent a few days chatting with me about ALL of my body pain I have been having. Mostly neck and shoulder area and I have even been going to the Chiropractor… but I had yet had any sort of relief from the pain and swelling.. 


A Lady named Cheryl and Her daughter swear by Young living oils and she sent me some samples (peppermint and her own mix) alone with a sweet card pictured above. I have actually been feeling better after rubbing these oils on my pained areas and for that I am SO thankful. 

This has really made me interested in investing in oils for myself and my family! 

It is absolutely amazing that these women that I have never met took the time and sent me such an amazing gift. 

I am excited to share how these oils help me and I hope to become more educated on oils and other Holistic remedies for myself and my family! 

Thank you for stopping by my page and be sure to like and follow my blog to keep up with my ever random life.

Winter Skincare MUST haves- The Indie Chic Blog

01-12-2018 

The Indie Chic Blog 


Hey babes, it has been a while since I have posted a review and I am in LOVE with a few of my Skin/ Hair products lately! 

Dove Winter Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner. 

A while ago I was roaming the Shampoo isle at wal-mart as per usual and I came across the new Dove Winter Therapy set. I have always loved how gentle and amazing dove has always worked on my skin so I figured “why not” without knowing this would soon become my favorite Shampoo and Conditioner EVER! You guys!!!!!!! This leaves my hair so soft, shiny and manageable that I have not even been using any heat what-so-ever on my hair! The scent is very light and fresh, you just have to try it! 


Dove Winter Care bodywash. 

Since my last shopping haul I knew that I needed to try the Winter Care for skin as well and I am just as pleased. This bodywash leaves my skin so soft and moisturized with no ash at all. Seriously, a must have if you are like me and have dry winter skin. 


 Garnier Skin Active [new] 

I recieved this Garnier Skin Active complimentary in my Voxbox I got a few months ago from Influenster. I got this face wash in OCTOBER and look at how much is still left and I use this twice daily! I have a hard time when it comes to my face because I have very very dry skin and most face wash causes breakouts but I am happy to say my skin looks so good that I do not even use foundation anymore! 

I hope you enjoyed this review and I look forward to writing many more in the near future. Be sure to check out my previous posts and hit the follow button! Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

January 1st – Starting a new  journey. 

Monday-1/01/2018 #storyofmylife

I would have to say one of the biggest obstacles I have struggled with has always been my eating problems and stress/anxiety disorder. I used to not care about myself or even thought that I was worth anything because I didn’t see it. I used to be in a vey dark and scary place but I am so happy to say that this New Year has began as Kasey being the Healthiest and happiest EVER! I reached a goal that has always been impossible. I could never maintain my weight (ever) and I had a hard time keeping my weight above 85lb. I am so  thankful to say that the first day of a New Year begins with my highest weight ever and I am no longer struggling! 


I see myself where I am today and all the hell I went through to be where I am today and I can smile. I know that every struggle and all of those mountains I had to climb was to reach the top and to keep going! I have grown as a Wife, Mother, and basic human being. I have a Husband who loves me, children who adore me and inner strength I never knew I had. 


Early 2017. 


Ending 2017. 

Sometime I find it crazy that the one thing that made me realize my strength is the one thing I thought would drag me down. After my diagnosis with Interstitial Cystitis it was like something clicked in my head and I realized that even though I have this life altering chronic syndrome, I am alive and ready to live. 

I will take this year, the last year of my 20s and I will be so much more than I ever believed I could. I know the whole “New Year, New Me” is a clique but really my goal this year is to “Heal” from the inside out. I will no longer run from my fears but rather take them head on. I will begin working on my Health and fitness like I never have and I am stoked to bring you all along on my journey! Follow my  Instagram for a full look into my life.  I can only imagine where I will be in a single year but wherever I go, I am taking you all with me. I will open up and share the good and the bad. I will share my whole experience of 2018 with all of my viewers and I hope you all will stick along for the ride. Cheers to New Years, let’s make the best of 2018!

Our first Time in the Snow! 


As you guys have gathered, we just had a week vacation in New Mexico and it was amazing! I feel so amazing as a parent being able to make such timeless memories with my family! Everything about Red River, New Mexico is beautiful! I have never seen such a fascinating and enchanting place in my life! 

I mean, it does not get anymore beautiful than this right? I wish that we could sell our house and pack up and leave like yesterday! Lol 

The towns are little villages where everyone is so sweet and friendly and there is no stop lights! We couldn’t believe it! Everyone stops for the Mule Deere that walk freely among the town. You can stop and feed the deer and ducks with no fear and everyone just smiles and waves! Ugh, I would love to go back every year because I just felt so at home there. 

We made some beautiful memories that’s for sure and it we were even blessed with snow while we were skiing! Talk about enchanting, our children have never been so happy ever! 



I could have never show my husband and In Laws  how thankful I am for working so hard for us to able to go one such an amazing vacation! 

It meant the world to be able to try something new, travel and spend some much needed time with the ones I love the most. I will be back tomorrow with more photos and details on our amazing trip! I hope enjoyed this post and I hope to see more followers!  


Thank you all so much for the uopouring support, I love you all, so much. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram xxkaseygruenewaldxx
