Loco for Coconut

Ladies!!! I was dreading cleaning my face after a long day of shooting. Caked on powder, shadow, bronzer, mascara, lashes….you name it!  I have always leaned towards moisturizing my skin with all natural oils.  Growing up I had very sensitive skin and would break out in rashes from any products that had un-natural ingredients.

I chose interesting to be polite.  One could also use words like insulting, nightmare, and absolutely wrong for me. Through these rough experiences and all the years of searching for the right fit for my family, I finally realized I... Read The Rest →

A Little Blocked Up

As I approached my Aires’ tween years I realized she would not give me information like before. Now she is a teen and I find I am pulling my hair out with frustration to get any answer from her without sarcasm. Lately my teen has been complaining about her stomach hurting her and so I immediately ask the question, “What’s your poop like?”  I also notice her skin is breaking out on her forehead as well. That is a sign of toxins not being eliminated from her system. Of course... Read The Rest →
