(This post is not sponsored, but it does contain some affiliate links.) Hi! I think that I have a record number of favorites (for me) this month. Maybe I have been shopping and eating too much? Speaking of eating, when I said that I’d make food favorites an occasional thing, I didn’t think that such an occasion would come up so quickly.  I just have so many good food items this month that it would be a crime if I didn’t share! So here are my food, beauty, and miscellaneous health favorites for September… Food...

Friday Favorites (2/6)

Like a total fangirl, I am ridiculously excited about the first favorite on my list this week… The Saved by the Bell reunion on Jimmy Fallon I could honestly go on for a solid week about how they managed to capture all of the amazingness of the original show into an 8 minute spoof.  If you were or are a SBTB fan at all and haven’t seen the clip, you absolutely must watch it.  It is amazing.  And seriously, they have all aged so well- even in HD! Hallmark Channel Movies At Christmastime, the Hallmark Channel played sappy...

My thoughts & tips after oil pulling for one year

My thoughts & tips after oil pulling for one year

You may recall all of my posts about oil pulling around this time last year.  Since there was so much interest in my experience at the time, and I continue to receive questions about it, I figured that it was time for a little follow-up post. If you have no idea what oil pulling is all about, you should definitely read my previous posts on the subject.  I went into lots of detail about the process, my results, and my thoughts on certain types of oils versus others, and I think you’ll find them to be helpful and informative. At least, I...

Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Pulling

Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Pulling

Happy Thursday! Since I’ve received so many questions about oil pulling, I thought that I’d do a little FAQ for you today. Just keep in mind that many of my responses are based on my personal experience.  I’m certainly not an expert in anything other than Lionel Richie and Saved by the Bell trivia. 😉   What time of the day is best for oil pulling?
