Summertime Blues: How To Cope

We live in an odd climate here in Phoenix. It’s hot, really hot, for a very long time! How does that affect you? Your body? Your mood? Your thoughts?

Homemade Deodorant: A Natural Way to Stay Fresh!

I began my transition to “homemade life” several years back, but it’s taken me quite awhile to attempt the deodorant. I switched to all natural deodorant years ago, but was never satisfied. I tried lots of brands (Toms, Jasons, Alba, etc) in lots of varieties and scents, but bottom line was that at the end […]
