Clean Eating Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake

It's taken me years to figure my way past all the diet and eating fads and over the last while I have settled more into simply cutting out anything processed and eating as clean as possible. It stems from both my belief system and my exhaustion at trying to figure out what's going to make […]

When Dove asked me What's Your #BeautyLegacy?

When I received the press release and video link to the?"What's your #BeautyLegacy" campaign by Dove, I watched it in awe of the responsibility it takes to be a parent to a young child (I don't believe only girls have self esteem or even beauty issues), but I couldn't relate and set the email aside. […]

Home remedies and heart tonics

It's been a long few weeks. Some of it has been super exciting and then there are the life patches that remind me how tender I can be at times. I spent last week dealing with a sick cat child, who is such a happy child, that he never gave any indication of not being […]

The things not even my bestie may know about me

I've had the combination of a stressful and exciting few weeks. I've also had my fair share of happiness and then a whack of sad. I've been forced to look at some things and tell myself the harsh truth and a few days later I've had the gift of being given the simplest reminder of […]

I have the cutest pair of Tigger slipper ... wait, I'll show you. I proudly wear them through winter, around the house. They haven't been out for public viewing, but #SlipperDay is a month away, on the 7th of August and I'm thinking ... Granted, I don't have offices of my own yet, so I […]

Yes, Humans Can Hibernate

I'm a 4:30am, get up and go, kinda girl. Well, in summer I'm that, but this winter I was more like a wake up and snuggle with the cats until the birds let me know it's warm enough to get out of bed. Amazingly, I still wake up before 5am through the whole of winter […]
