Maple Holistics Shampoo Review

Hello, So, this is a bit of an exciting post! I was contacted by Maple Holistics in the middle of September and they offered me a free bottle of their tea tree shampoo in exchange for a review. I had to buy the conditioner myself, because I didn’t feel that doing a review on the shampoo while using another brand of conditioner was a fair judgement…

SPICE UP YOUR LIFE

I wore my new favorite dress from Anthropologie to work today and I was feeling extremely fall-ish (semi scarecrow-ish). I really…

Hello All, If you have ever seen produce growing in a field, or even just had a garden or fruit tree in the yard you’ll know that produce does not all look the same. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t taste just as good, it just looks different. I am very fortunate to have been raised in Northern California in a town surrounded by farmland so I…

Since the city is such a tourist destination, but is so close to me I have decided to do “staycations” in the city every now and then and feature what I get up to here on the…

HOLD BACK THE RIVER

I’m just going to say it. I am not, nor have I ever been particularly curvy. I have very slim hips and that is something I can not change. No amount of squats or weight gain will cause my bones to miraculously spread to give me an hourglass shape… lol! That being said, I’m here to represent another wonderful shape of women. A couple of…

LADY IN RED

When I was growing up my favorite color was red. I’d choose to be the red player in any game, and I was obsessed with the RED SHOE in one of my favorite childhood games. Anytime my best friend and I would pick wedding colors while playing I always chose red, and she was always my Maid of Honor. Fast forward 15 years, give-or-take, and my…
