September 2015 Favorites

(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...

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? Ideally, oil pulling should be done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (even before you’ve had anything to drink).   What type of oil should I...

Things I didn’t share Friday (1-17)

Things I didn’t share Friday (1-17)

   1. As part of my nesting phase, I’ve been cleaning out beauty products that I don’t plan to use and gave most of them to my sister Melissa- including a pretty bold shade of gloss by Rimmel.  Apparently, my sister owned a clear gloss from the same line and automatically assumed that the tube I gave to her also contained a clear gloss.  Her lips were pretty chapped while she was at work yesterday (FYI- she’s a teacher), so she kept reapplying the gloss over and over again as though it was a lip balm.  Imagine her...
