National day(s) of complete diet obliteration ...also known as "the holidays," is almost upon us.
As much as I am looking forward to unlimited pumpkin pie and stuffing, I know that beginning the day after Thanksgiving, all I am going to want to do is detox.
This year I am one Read more

Although I absolutely love this time of the year with the brightly colored leaves and crisp fall air, I dread it at the same time. It seems all of my time is spent trying to prep all the livestock for the winter, insulating the house, cooking and freezing all Read more
Toner is one of the biggest misunderstood skin care products out there.
And to be honest, at one point when I was younger, I also believed some of these myths. What about you?

As I’m about to have a baby in a week, I can’t help but think about how, two years from now, we’ll be making another transition with our family – my oldest will be going to college. It’s hard to believe that while I’ll still be changing diapers with one child, I’ll be sending off another into the world.
It reminds me of this time 23 years ago, I was preparing to start college life. Seems like a lifetime ago and I’m sure my kids would chime in that it was “back in the olden days.” But what held true back then, still holds true now. Confidence is everything when beginning a new venture. Would you agree?Read more
IfÂ you’re anything like me, shaving is one of those beauty rituals (chores) that most of the time (every time) you wish you could skip…it’s just not that enjoyable (and doesn’t make much sense) to drag a sharp object across your skin in pursuit of smoother, softerÂ skin.Â Â Â It is, however, kind of a necessity if you plan on wearing anything shorter than ankle length…or if you’re not inÂ THAT stage ofÂ the relationship, when if your someone special runs their hands across your legs and encounters a bit of stubble you’re not embarrassed and they don’t immediately remember that the have an early deadline tomorrow and have to head home to get some sleep (I thought you worked for the government, they have Sunday deadlines…go figure).Â Nothing ruins a perfect, romantic Sunday morning faster than stretching seductively in bed and in the process revealing a not so sexyÂ patch of underarm fuzz…and you even woke up with glowing skin, not so bad morning breath and sexy bed head…in which country is it again that women don’t tend to shave their armpits?Â Read more
