How & why I’m detoxifying my beauty and cleaning routines

How & why I’m detoxifying my beauty and cleaning routines

Please note: What you will read below is what has personally worked for me.  I realize that even making drastic lifestyle changes may not help everyone who suffers from an autoimmune disease, and as always, you should consult with your doctor to determine what will work best for you.  For about half of my life, I have known that I have an autoimmune disease called lupus.  I’ve learned to manage very well with it over the years (mostly without prescription medication) thanks to my very healthy lifestyle.  As I wrote in the disclaimer...

Friday favorites (10/24)

Happy Friday! It has been a busy week here with the kids, and I’ve been behind on reading blogs and blogging myself.  I should be back on track next week, but despite the chaos, I still have a five favorites to talk about today. Let’s get to it! Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Candle from Bath & Body Works We are crazy about the scent of this candle in my household.  MT likes it so much that I went to Bath & Body Works on Wednesday to totally stock up on the candles, plug-in, and hand wash before they are all gone for the season....

Friday Favorites & Maybes (10/17)

Friday Favorites & Maybes (10/17)

Happy Friday! As you know, this is usually that day of the week where I turn into a QVC hostess and rave on and on about all of the products that I am into at the moment.  I’m still wearing my Lori Greiner hat today, but today I also have two things that have me on the fence a bit. Let’s get the maybes out of the way before ending on a high note with my definite favorites…     Maybe #1: Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Vinegar I picked this up at Whole Foods several weeks ago after reading that it “is an abundant...

Shop for a cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Shop for a cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post.) I love to shop (which is not a secret), but sometimes I do suffer from “Buyer’s Remorse” after I buy something (especially if that “something” is for myself).  Like most people, I just don’t like wasting money or spending it on foolish wasteful things. However, I never regret buying things, such as the items below, because I know that my money is going toward a great cause.  In this case, I’m talking about breast cancer research. I am so happy that such...

Friday Favorites (10/3)

Happy Friday! Just a head’s up- next week’s Friday Favorites will feature items that support breast cancer research in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I have a long list of products, so make sure that you check back here next Friday to see it!   Apple Spice Candle  Yankee Candle ran an incredible deal on candles last week, so naturally, I took advantage of it and ordered some fall scents.  I have been burning this apple spice candle ever since it arrived, and I think that I may even shed a tear when it is all...

My nail polish picks for fall 2014

My nail polish picks for fall 2014

Happy Monday! Even though I don’t get to paint my nails nearly as often as I did pre-kids, I am absolutely crazy about the polish colors that are typically worn around this time of the year. Let’s face it though- there isn’t much that I don’t like about the fall (except maybe for football). I’m still loving my picks from last year, especially Chinchilly, but my list of favorites has really expanded- especially with all of the new fall collections. Hopefully, my nails will be painted the entire season long, but my...
