Hello world!

Hello World & Welcome to my page!

We are Shauna & Bryan (and Ray the Cat.) We live in a little beach cottage in San Diego that everyone calls “The LoveShack.” My brother Rich lives in the house behind us.


I spent 30+ years in the Hotel/Hospitality business but my real passion has always been creating things. Whether it’s in the kitchen cooking, doing minor construction projects, making homemade beauty and hygiene products or  my line of custom jewelry, these are the things that fill my soul.

We have a 250 sq foot garden that we eat out of year round, and 3 chickens that love roaming there. Our garden is abundant and has made me into a master canner (something that used to really intimidate me.) Our garden has an awesome herb collection and I make my own dried herb blends for cooking. We have several passion fruit trees and my passion fruit jam & curd have become legendary in the neighborhood. We recently planted a blueberry bush, a cherry tree & a peach tree and can’t wait to harvest them!

Bryan is an engineer and a Master Gardner and an avid fisherman. He is always teaching me new skills with power tools, how to fix stuff & he keeps our garden flourishing. We love working on projects & in the garden together.

About a year ago, I discovered essential oils and I am obsessed! So much that I became a distributor for YoungLiving. I started making our toothpaste, mouthwash and soap and have now moved into beauty products and more. I began to realize how many toxins we use on a daily basis and have worked hard to eliminate them from our home.

I recently  combined my love for jewelry making and my love of essential oils and  started a line of diffuser jewelry. It is at the top of my list of my most favorite things I have ever created.

I am so glad you are here and I look forward to sharing some of my passion with you, hope you drop by again soon!
