Welcome to Deja Vu Organics!
My goal is to make living a healthy, non-toxic lifestyle as convenient as possible for busy women in this modern world we live in.
What do I mean by this?
Most organic wellness sites focus on DIY and saving money. But, although I love to save money, I personally prefer convenience over pinching pennies.
Let’s face it- some of us barely have time to get a pedicure once a month (I am so sorry for anyone who has looked at my toes lately…) let alone try to cook dinner from scratch every night and make our own cleaners. I would much rather have some healthy pressure cooker recipes and a list of non-toxic cleaners and I figure I can’t be the only one out there who thinks this way (even if I am the only one to admit it).
Who Am I?
My name is Deja’ Cronley and I am a mother, blogger, and former nurse. My #1 priority in life are my kiddos and nutty family.
I love Crossfit, Harry Potter, childbirth, Disney, the Dallas Cowboys, and the beach!
For over a decade, I worked with pregnant women and loved it! I was a Labor and Delivery Nurse, Case Manager, and Administrative Nursing Director. I then went “crunchy” aka natural including having a homebirth, extended breastfeeding, eating organic food, using essential oils, organic cleaners, and detoxing my home.
I then went on to completely overall my home (sorry, hubby!) to slowly include nontoxic items including clothing, furniture, and cookware and the process continues to this day. We are currently saving up to build our dream home in a couple of years and we plan to go completely green!
How Did I Go from Nurse to Blogger?
Me becoming a blogger is completely my daughter’s fault- and I can never thank her enough for it.
My daughter was what some would call a high needs baby. She screamed uncontrollably anytime I was not near by. To say she didn’t adjust well when I went back to work (in the home thankfully) would be the understatement of the year. She was often in my lap while I worked and trying to take calls while keeping her quiet was nerve-wracking. We went through FIVE in-home sitters before we found one she would mostly tolerate.
Given what we went through with my daughter, my husband and I decided I would be a stay at home mom once I got pregnant with my son.
I loved being with my kiddos all day but I still had the desire to help women. I missed it. One day I was discussing how much I missed working with woman and my sister mentioned blogging.
At first I honestly didn’t feel like I had much to write about but then she pointed out how much I knew about childbirth and living a non-toxic lifestyle. The rest, as they say, is history.
