I’ve to say that I am not guilty of letting my children spend too much time, sometimes, in front of screens, or letting them watch too much television. I know, though, that I need to monitor, and stop children playing games online too much.

Summertime calls for sippin! Last week, I introduced y’all to my friend Ginny, over at GeorgiaPeachy.com . She wrote an open letter to Justice after asbestos was found in children’s makeup (yes, seriously!) Ginny was nice enough to host a Beautycounter social for me back in May and served up these tasty cocktails. They are perfect for summer and I served them at baby’s 1st birthday last Sunday.

Superfoods seem to be all the rage. They seem to be in every recipe on Pinterest. (Are we friends over there? Let’s be!) It seems like there’s a new superfood product on the shelf every time I shop. But, what exactly are superfoods? There is no scientific definition of a superfood but the term usually refers to foods containing high levels of vitamins and minerals that offer many health benefits such as boosting your immune system and natural weight loss.
By consuming these superfoods on a regular basis, you are feeding your body large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, fiber, probiotics, and high levels of omega 3 fatty acids. Superfoods also contain few calories, are low in sugar, and have lots of soluble fiber and health-boosting phytochemicals. It can be hard to sort out which may be the best to incorporate.

Last year I had my first baby which led to a real come-to-Jesus moment about my skin. Clean eating, sunscreen, loads of water and avoiding chemical laden products on my sensitive skin had kept most people guessing I was in my later 20’s, instead of the
awful truth that I am now deep, deep in my 30’s. And I need natural skin care products that actually work. Read on to find out what’s in my natural skin care routine. Continue reading “My Natural Skin Care Routine”
In honor of National Dental Health Month, I’m going to let you in on some things you probably don’t know about me. I was a dental hygienist in my former life…ok, well maybe in this life, but it feels like ages ago.
Confession time: I still keep my licenses and the geek in me thoroughly enjoys a day in the clinic from time-to-time. That said, I’ve got some sneaky secrets to share. Continue reading “5 Secrets I Learned as a Dental Hygienist”
