Some of you probably lump me in with a large group of people that you see on your Facebook pages and other social media sites who sell things. You all see these people who are part of multi-level-marketing companies or “pyramid schemes” for the most uninformed out there. I never in a million years… Continue reading Yes, I Sell Things…But Passion Comes First.

Spend $150, get a Cleansing Balm ($80 value) or Citrus Body Oil ($73) for FREE! Now through Sunday, July 30th,… Continue reading An Easy Way to Switch to Safer Products <>
My sweet baby boy was 12 weeks old yesterday! This milestone meant that my time on maternity leave was coming to an end. I spent most of the week trying to soak in as many baby snuggles as I could because when else could I spend my days with nothing on my agenda but taking… Continue reading When The Going Gets Tough, Even The Tough Need To Drink Vodka
A quick note on my day today. I spent the weekend in Michigan hosting my sister’s Bridal Shower. It was a great time and went really well. I had to get to the airport this morning by 6am EST (which is 5am “my time”). I spent the night at my mom’s house in the bedroom… Continue reading When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned
Many of you probably notice that I always wear lipstick. Harlow also notices that I always wear lipstick, and wants to be like Mommy and wear lipstick, too. Most conventional lipstick may contain an unsafe level of lead. The last federal law governing the cosmetics industry was passed in 1938 – more than 40 years… Continue reading Safe Skin Sunday – Lipstick!
If you are a working mom like me, you look forward to going in to work on Monday where you can have a small break from all of the demands that the little people you created (or acquired when you got married) put on you. You come in, put your lunch in the fridge, grab… Continue reading Lies Moms Tell on Mondays
I worked out two days this week! I know it’s only Thursday, and I have a few days left, but I feel confident saying that I am not going to work out anytime between now and Monday. I know two days a week is not ideal, but it is better than zero days a week,… Continue reading How I Manage to Fit Work Outs In
I am just going to put it out there. In the past three days, I think I have eaten about 25 cookies. Yes. 2-5. Twenty Five. Twenty Five Cookies. That being said, it’s actually part of my job. I work for a large CPG company on a very well known brand and I had to taste test some new cookie recipes that will be coming out for the Christmas season. And when I say “had to test” I really mean that I had to take a bite of each and give my approval. I did not have to eat the entire cookie. But I did. And I am ok with that…until I have to pass my gestational diabetes test in a few weeks. Then ask me how I’m feeling. But remember, I’m not perfect. 🙂 Continue reading “The Opposite of Health and Fitness”
I am always looking for safer skincare options. Your skin is your largest organ so you should be just as concerned about what you put IN your body as what you put ON your body. A lot of times, products that have a “better for you” “safe” “organic” “natural” label to them don’t really work… Continue reading Go-To Summer Skincare Products!
