Fellow “Barista” Trista Porter is no stranger to these pages, but you may have noticed she hasn’t “been around” lately! She’s in the throes of school, her own business and co-owning another, and marriage preparations (yup, Candy is gonna be a mother-of-the-groom this fall, too!). So, while you will see her around again…it may not […]

I’ve been hearing about the whole apple cider vinegar on your hair fad for years now. I know that internally, apple cider vinegar is great for you, but I have always been hesitant to put it on my hair. I’ve seen horror stories where people have had their brown hair turned orange by vinegar, and […]
My journey to become more frugal and healthier simultaneously has been challenging, considering most foods that are even slightly good for you cost an arm and a leg. It gets a bit overwhelming at times.
One of my new years resolutions is to be frugal while still using products that are friendly to the earth and people. I know.

Lights, angles, and composition all go into a great photo, but throw a kid into the mix and things sometimes come off as a bit more challenging.

I’ve been cutting back my use of cleaners that are made with harmful chemicals and I have to say that I’m pretty proud of myself. Homemade toilet, floor, glass, and now shower cleaners! Plus, they’re all made in an inexpensive and eco-friendly way! Showers/tubs can be pretty difficult to clean. Built up residue and even […]
Shampoos and conditioners can cause some major damage to your scalp if you aren’t careful. Even organic products can leave a layer of residue that stays on your head after multiple shampoos. This can hinder toxins from being released from the body (a large amount of toxins are released from the scalp) and it is […]
Summer snuck up on me. I’m not gonna lie – the heat, the sunburn, the BUGS, they all seemed to show up out of the blue… Even though it caught me of guard, I’m not letting mother nature get the best of me. I’m going to work with her to get the best out of […]
