I have mentioned before that we live in a forest. I wouldn’t have it any other way but with the trees comes the ticks. Ticks don’t mess around. One tiny baby tick can leave a huge, itchy whelp for months. My girls and I have several tick bites each and I’ve found the best remedy to calm the itch, accelerate… Read More »Coconut Sticks for Fast Healing!
This post might seem like a no-brainer but up until a few months ago I was seriously neglecting my upper chest, or as the french say, decolletage. Let me make something clear, this isn’t a post about boobs. I’m talking about the shoulders, collar bones, and upper chest area. I guess you could say it’s a post about cleavage,… Read More »My Favorite Summer Beauty Tip…
Summertime is upon us and I’m ready for some warm nights on the patio! Normally I am not a sangria fan. I just don’t love tons of sugar in my cocktails and I’m not a red wine fan either.

A few weeks ago I ran across a… Read More »Create Your Own Art with Smoke Balls!

I have a confession to make-I have a sunburn. And it’s bad. My girls were begging to go swimming and I had just been at the gym so a dip sounded so good. What was supposed to be 20 minutes, turned into an hour with no sunblock, no umbrella! I should have known better!! So, I’m bright pink right now! … Read More »DIY Sunburn Relief Spray
Summer is rapidly approaching and it’s time to shed the winter sweaters and show some skin! I don’t know about you but at the beginning of the spring/summer season I get a little bit shy the first time I wear a sleeveless shirt or a non-maxi dress. I feel exposed! Nothing like a nice tan can shake this feeling and… Read More »The Healthy Way To Tan & The Benefits of Vitamin D!
I have been waiting to do this post for a while now! Sunscreen is quickly becoming a very controversial subject that is worth discussing. Facts aside, I HATE sunscreen. I hate the smell, I hate how it burns my skin and I always was confused about those SPF numbers.
