And people are finally catching on...

Making your own DIY natural homemade beauty treatments can be easy and cheap. Often you have the supplies in your kitchen without having to buy anything special. It’s messy. It’s not as convenient as the over the counter “natural” products for tightening your skin, moisturizing and shrinking those pores. It is, however, good for you and you’ll be avoiding...
I’m always on a quest to improve my skin naturally. From what I’m eating to help how my skin looks to egg white masks, lemon juice to lighten my aging skin and even apple cider vinegar for acne.

3 Ways to Achieve Beach Waves with a Flat Iron

Eco-Friendly & Warm Winter Jacket
I don’t like to be cold. In fact, I despise the cold. It’s something you’d think I was used to after all of these years living in Michigan. I’d prefer shorts and flip flops. The snow, wind and cold is something I just have to live with and my flip flips stay packed for 9 months out of the...
Women love shoes. Women love to wear shoes that are stylish and comfortable. At least this woman does.

I do a lot of reviews. I like doing reviews and getting the mail is always exciting seeing that I make it very convenient for people to send me products to review. I now have a very good relationship with the UPS man and Fed Ex driver. The reviews aren’t always something for me. I don’t get new clothing...
My face is always dry. I just have that type of skin and yesterday my Origins Face Lotion was gone. Gone. I have become hooked to the stuff ever since it was sent my way. I didn't even share it with my new Green Guru, Mckenzie. I kept it all to myself (shh)! I've been wanting to try something...
