I still consider my kids to be relatively picky, but they really aren’t so picky when I take a look at what they’re typically willing to try.

I’ve made a few different versions of this bar before now… and I finally feel good about sharing it with the great big world, and I can’t wait to hear how […]
These cruelty-free (and completely vegan) items have made the honorable mention list this month, hands down! A few of these are part of my daily routine on a regular basis (not just in October.) and a couple of these items are brand new favorites worth sharing the word about. Hair Care Acure Shampoo and Conditioner. […]
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Muffins – I wasn’t so sure about this combination, but then I decided to just go for it, and the result is DELICIOUS. A perfect recipe for fall, I’d say! I know it’s a cliche, but I really have been putting pumpkin in everything. For this recipe, I was literally lying in […]
Turmeric and Ginger come together to make this delicious variety of “Golden Milk” latte that helps boost your immune system and kick the detoxification process into high gear!
