Let’s Talk About Endometriosis

There is something in my life that has been a major hurdle for me healthwise.  I know I have been alluding to talking about it in a few recent posts, but I have found it hard to find the words. I suppose I have found myself at a loss for how to cover such a big, serious topic in a way that will not weigh down you my readers. Finally I came to the conclusion that this issue is common enough and not talked about enough, that it could be really beneficial for ya’ll to have heard about it in…

D.I.Y. All Natural // Toothpaste (Dentist Approved!)

Hello Peeps! A few weeks back we were chatting about our new series: D.I.Y. All Natural where I shared our recipe for D.I.Y. Windex. Originally when I came up with the idea of doing a series based on all natural D.I.Y.’s I was thinking it would be for cleaning products exclusively.

I typically just zombie walk to the bedroom where I return to my passed out state.The main problem with this, aside from it being a great way to cause more…

Vajayjay Talk // Diva Cup Review

About a year ago, I shared with you the wonder of Thinx underwear, in one of my most popular posts of all time. Apparently you guys are open books like me and really like talking about the #NotEw topic of vagina care. So instead of just letting that post be a one time box talk, I thought that it would be fun to include a new little series called “Vajayjay Talk”. This will not be a routinely posted series, but as topics arise I will do my best to cover them and if you have any ideas of things you…

Keeping My Skin Happy With Aveda

When A and I first moved to Ohio, it was the only time in our lives that we had encountered truly cold weather. Don’t get me wrong, snowboarding is my favorite sport and I was up in the snow as often as possible growing up. But midwest cold? It is a whole different animal than California “cold”. Ohio was pretty much unbearable for me 11 months out of the year. The winters started in late October, and continued clear through April – we decided to move when we got back from a trip in April and the ground had a foot of…
