How to Make An Imperfect Smile Look Better In Photos

• By

Ok, so I have gone back and forth about doing a post like this and decided to just go ahead and share my thoughts on this because someone could be dealing with the same thing.

It may seem like a vain and minor thing to be concerned about but, this is something that has bothered me for the past few years and it seems like it has progressively gotten worse in the past year.

Healthy Kids’ Guide

• By

My journey to living a healthier life does not stop with me. Since having Benjamin, I have been super careful about what I put in or on my son’s body. I always say that he is the one who fuels my love for green juice and all-organic everything, even more.

I always get asked which natural products I use on him and what do I feed him so, here are just a few of things I have used or still use that have great ingredients without all of the crap.

Why all the fuss?

For me, I do not want my son to suffer from conditions and illnesses that, in my opinion, could have been prevented. Everything we eat, drink, and put in or on our bodies has an effect.

And yes, I know you can’t prevent everything but, I’m sure going to try!

The things we use on a daily basis should not lead to disease.

This list has products that I have personally used for my son. Some of them are not completely natural, depending on your definition but, what I look for in products are:

  • no parabens
  • no sulfates
  • no phthalates
  • no formaldehyde
  • no mineral oil
  • organic ingredients

If you’ve ever tried to get pregnant, been told you might not ever get pregnant naturally, or struggled with carrying to full-term this post is for you, sis.

I went through my own struggles with getting pregnant and after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in my 20’s, I was told that I probably would not get pregnant without the help of fertility drugs.

I was absolutely crushed!

Feminine Care: My Honey Pot review

• By

Hey loves!

I’m bringing you my take on the Honey Pot company pads that I decided to try out recently.  Video reviews and social media posts about this brand have been swirling the internet for the past few years, and when Aunt Flo made an appearance last week, it was my chance to give them a shot.
