7 Ways Planning, Organizing and Decluttering Led to Better Self Care in 2018

2018 has been a year of redesigning my life. It really has. Today, I wanted to share one of the unexpected changes I made that has probably had one of the biggest impacts on how I feel every day. Disclaimer: I have never, ever been good at planning or even using a calendar or planner. I may even have been known to have 5 planners going at once without ever looking at a single one with any kind of consistency. What I lacked in effort, I made up for in intention and constant overwhelm. That said,  with the amount of...

How I maintain my fitness routine during the holiday season

Fitness during the busy-ness of the holiday season can be tricky for four reasons: it's cold outside, it gets dark so early (for many of us), we're prepping for the holidays, and it's just easy to make excuses.

5 Steps to Better Skin in your Forties

Lets talk about how our skin changes after forty, shall we? I have never, ever had an issue with acne, blemishes, blotchy or red skin ---nada. And then I turned forty-something and my skin decided to do everything. It went oily AND dry; it started to become even more sensitive to things touching it, even hair products. I couldn't even wear liquid make-up without getting these crazy bumps all over. My poor lips started to dry and flake, too. I felt like I was imploding (cue the Walking Dead). Needless to say, I couldn't very well own a natural skincare...

50 things that helped me ease into perimenopause in my early forties

I started this blog, along with this natural soap and skincare business during a particular season in my life, shortly after I turned 40, when I felt I could no longer ignore some of the dreams that have been with me since childhood. My Second Spring was a very real thing, and I needed a change like my life depended on it. It turned out, this business would save me a few years later, teaching me more about myself than I could have imagined, mostly because it allowed me to make some new and necessary changes in my lifestyle, my...
