The Worst Four-Letter Word: CARB.

Fuck. I knew, in the back of my mind, exactly what my doctor was going to tell me. You might remember, that at the beginning of May I was experiencing some pretty intense hormonal issues. I made an appointment with my gynecologist, went, and left with the same instructions I had been given almost two

That Oily Shelf

As you may have noticed, Jess, Taylor, and I are oily. We love our essential oils, we use them daily, are building an oily empire together, and love to spread the word on how much these tiny bottles can help support your wellness. Mind, Body, and Spirit. Now that I’ve gotten the nicey nice stuff

Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

I am not a “reader” – if you give me the choice between sitting on the couch all day (re)watching old episodes of The Challenge, or picking up a new book, I’ll pick TV 9 times out of 10. I try to push myself to read more, but as a visual person, reading doesn’t always

Throwback Thursday: One Day at a Time

In a previous life I had a blog called The Corner Office. I wrote on it daily, then weekly, then…rarely. It was a chapter of my life that needed to be closed – shit, it was a BOOK that needed to be closed. But, in an effort to be honest with you about my story

Ditch and Switch

From washing my hair to putting on my make up, I use non-toxic products. It wasn’t a quick switch, but it was definitely a researched one! Because if you’re anything like me, you aren’t ditching your salon brand shampoo unless you have a good reason to! If you are also someone who needs to know
