A Tribute to my fellow Bloggers!


Good Morning Bloggers!! Well its Thursday…have to say I wish it was Saturday so I could have stayed in my warm bed with my man…but duty calls, at least there is coffee and two bright-eyed bushy tailed kiddos waiting for me. 😀

Remedy for Dry Skin


Okay I know I am not the only person out there who has an issue with dry skin over the winter time. Summer not so much due to all the sunscreen I lather on at work, needless to say my skin stays quite oily for those few months.

So how do we get rid of that itchy dry irritating skin and scalp? Here are a few tips to put in your back pocket for the long dry winter months.

If you are seeking a more natural way to keep your skin healthy I would start with the soap you use everyday for your face and body. Over the years there are a few key ingredients to soaps that have helped immensely: Glycerin Soaps, Olive Oil, Tea Tree oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil, Wheat Germ Oil.

Jojoba Oil: the skin strengthener. Similar in structure to that of natural sebum, jojoba oil can help reduce the production of oil while strengthening the epidermis.

Tea Tree Oil: antifungal and antibacterial. Tea tree oil has been used for centuries to heal the skin. In addition, it carries oxygen into the hair follicles, reducing and killing the bacteria that lead to pimples.

Almond Oil: the skin soother. Used for centuries for its ability to nourish, almond oil is ideal for soothing sensitive skin.

Wheat Germ Oil: the acne fighter. A rich source of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, wheat germ oil is effective in treating acne and blemishes, and provides antioxidant protective properties.

Olive Oil:  It is a great skin moisturizer, in part because it contains linoleic acid, a  compound not made by the body, but which prevents water from evaporating.

Glycerin Soaps:  are soaps that contain glycerin, a component of fat or oil. They are very mild and rich in moisture.

Coconut Oil:  For skin it is a moisturizer, antibiotic, multivitamin, multi-nutrient, nourishing, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle and anti-oxidant. The best and most skin friendly form is Pure Virgin Coconut Oil.

We just got done making a batch of natural Olive oil soaps infused with hand-picked fragrance. I gotta say it is very refreshing to wash my hands with a soap that doesn’t instantly make them feel dry and itchy.

So the next time you are at the store or your local farmers market, cruise on by the soap area and see what natural soaps you can find. You may pay a little bit more but your skin will thank you a million times over.

Happy New Year!


It was a fantastic 2012 and I am looking forward to this year…2013!

I have to admit that it makes me feel slightly old 🙂 but then again kind of grown up. If I look back at how far I have come over the past year, I have learned a lot. I honestly never thought I would live to see 2013. It seemed so unreal back in the 90’s, I thought we would have flying cars, teleporting, and laser guns. We may have a few prototypes of these things but I have to admit I was looking forward to things being like the Jetsons.

I didn’t set a new years resolution, gasp, I know right? What was I thinking? I have a few thoughts on goal setting. Mine is usually not set out that far ahead. I like to set daily and weekly goals not yearly goals. And this is why…

There are always goals we jump for and panic to reach in a timely manner, succeeding at times and failing at others. What matters the most is what you have learned along the way and how you have grown as an individual. Did you reach your goals? If not what was the greatest moment along the way, and what would you do differently?

I used to set unreachable goals for myself that I would fail, but what is failure really… and is it that bad to not reach a goal if you have learned something magnificent in the process. Now I could set a goal for myself saying, ” I am going to paint the most realistic painting and have it hanging in a local gallery by the end of the year.” However, while reaching this goal, I start to realize that I have painted over 15 abstract scenes, flowers, and clouds but no realistic scenery. At this point should I be disappointed in myself, or should I rest satisfied in the fact that I am a decent abstract drawer/painter? Failure is only failure if you give up and stop trying to reach your goal. Even if you never get the that first designated goal, your journey has led you to a beautiful place of growth which in itself is priceless.

With each step we take towards a set goal, we learn a little bit more about ourself…what we’re made of…capable of…the strength within us… and a clearness of who we really are and how far we can travel on our own two feet.

In the end, each journey is our own to experience. Whether we have people in our lives who step in tune with us, or we are alone…we are ultimately walking the path solo with a singular purpose… finding the answers only our soul searches for.

So this year I will take a deep breath and enjoy the world around me. I will accept the positive and not be blind to the negative for in it there is growth on how to be a better person. I will love my children boyfriend and family with a humbled heart knowing our world will not last forever. Does this sound like a resolution? kinda but it is more like a declaration of independence I will create for myself. 🙂

Happy New Year Everyone!
