I’ve been a Beautycounter consultant now for almost a year and have had a chance to try many of the skincare, makeup, body care and even hair care products! (more…)
I was skeptical when I first heard about essential oils. I didn’t know what they were or why I should use them. My first try with oils was with a blend my sister gave me meant to repel mosquitoes and other bugs. I thought it worked reasonably well and it smelled good so I looked up some other oils to try.

I put a lot of thought into gift giving. I guess it’s my Love Language. Surprise your favorite him or her with a gift that will be good for their health as well! Win-win in my book.

I’m gearing up for holiday shopping and with Black Friday just hours away, I thought it’d be helpful to put together a gift guide for young kids (since that’s what I know).

I recently discovered Beautycounter, a safer skin care and cleaner cosmetics company out of Santa Monica, CA. I had heard about them here and there on social media but hadn’t personally known anyone who had bought any of their products. (more…)
Meal planning is something a lot of people struggle with and I am no exception. Some weeks I just lack inspiration or I’m burnt out on thinking about food. But I know it’s worth it to plan for the week ahead and makes the evenings go so much smoother. (more…)
Raise your hand if you leap out of bed in the morning, ready to tackle the day? Not you either?
