All Natural Deodorant Review- Routine

Using products that are natural and cruelty-free has become increasingly important to me. Not only for my own personal health and well-being but because I kind of care about the environment. Yea that’s right, I am a tree hugger and proud of it. We as the consumers have the power to make the choice of what products we purchase, so I have decided to place a healthy level of mindfulness between myself and beauty products. There are alternatives out there if only you take the time to do a little research, the big brand beauty companies…

Searching for Happiness – PT4: Supporting your Spirit

Hi there, it is me again. It is week four of this new super cool  Searching for Happiness series and now we are getting into the deep bits. Today’s post is all about the spirit. No not the holy spirit or the one in your basement, the cool kind, the fun kind. Is it just me or do people tend to look at you like you are a weirdo hippy, a nonmodern idiot or a judgmental hypocrite when you talk about religion or spirituality anymore? Ok, that may be a little dramatic. However, I do kind of feel…

Searching for Happiness – Part 3: Healthy Relationships

Welcome back, and to part three of this new series. Today I will be talking about healthy relationships. Because basically, I am an expert on those matters. Kidding.

Make date night a priority: Even if you can only squeeze it in once a month, it is important to spend quality time with your sweetums. Check…

The Book Lovers Tag

Hello, everyone! I have been seeing this tag post pop up everywhere lately and I thought I would give it a go. Why you may ask? Well because if there is one thing I like almost as much as reading it’s writing. So why not write about reading. You feel me?   Do you have a specific place for reading? My favorite place to read is in the cabin, with little distraction I can read a book in one weekend if it is chilly outside. So peaceful. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper? Bookmarks.  I have a few books…

I have been making some small changes lately that have been impacting my overall happiness in big ways.

Dear Bloggers, It’s not just about the money

  Dear Bloggers, Is it just me or is the blogging world quickly becoming a bit of a get rich fast scheme? It seems to me that more often than necessary there are posts all about making money blogging, public income reports and how to earn money on posts. Bloggers boast about how they made $20,000 in their first month of blogging and other crazy declarations. It is reminding me of those insanely unrealistic diet ads that so many people fall for. I am sure for those who are actually cashing in it is helpful to have these references…
