Taking a Moment for the Game of Thrones Finale

May 20, 2019

*SPOILERS AHEAD* I have been a devout fan of Game of Thrones since the very beginning.

Martin to the wind. My analysis is simply the … Continue reading Taking a Moment for the Game of Thrones Finale

What’s In Your Soap?

April 09, 2019

I don’t ride bandwagons or hype-trains. I was never one to tout “all natural” or “organic” because it was trending. So, several years ago, when I started my research into making my own soap, it was out of the sincere need to help my husband’s struggle with psoriasis and eczema. At that time, prior to … Continue reading What’s In Your Soap?

The Hardest Part is Getting Started

August 31, 2018

I recently started going to the gym.  I’m not a big fan of the gym, in fact, I would dare say that it is slightly above medieval torture on my scale of things I loathe.  I have tried so many different ways to make the moments at the gym joyful – from classes, to workout … Continue reading The Hardest Part is Getting Started

May 25, 2018

Who has the time to give yourself facial masks, nevermind go and get facials? While rituals of cleansing are important aspects of self-care, anything that causes you extra stress is not worth its time.

I bought twelve amber glass jars a little less than a year ago. I stored them in a drawer for that entire time. I had a million ideas for these jars. I knew I wanted them to be a candle, but I pined over the design of the label, and most importantly, over the fragrance. … Continue reading A Serenity Candle Created From Chaos

What is Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine?

April 03, 2018

I have long been intrigued by Ayurveda and ancient Indian herbalist practices. My introduction to Ayurveda is actually one of the (many) reasons I chose to develop my own skincare; I just didn’t feel Western culture used enough of these practices in our own holistic health. The main practice of Ayurveda is the balance between mind, … Continue reading What is Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine?

Dealing With Perioral Dermatitis

January 29, 2018

I look back on my youth with reverence and sadness. I never realized how beautiful my skin was. I would get the monthly period pimple, but my skin was clear, dewy, and vibrant. Youth is wasted on the young. All of this youthful vitality seemed to change when I hit my thirties. Suddenly, I was losing more … Continue reading Dealing With Perioral Dermatitis
