Sunday Stills

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but this week has been a reminder of how blessed and full my life truly is. Friend dates and veggie sandwiches Thrift store and flea market wins Baby Sister’s sophomore year Fair Trade oven mitts Deciding to and mapping out my transition to natural hair…

Why Aldi is the bomb-diggety

When I was a kid, I was always excited when we took a trip to Aldi because going there meant we were getting some sort of German cookie for which my mother was feeling nostalgic (military family life) and because we had to jigsaw puzzle our loot into leftover boxes from the store. Now that I’m…

July Green Beauty Empties

Not too many empties this month, but since most of them were new (or new-ish) to me, I wanted to make a post about them. Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Leave-In Conditioner: I mentioned this in my last empties. I still love it, and I purchased another one before I even…

Zarbee’s Naturals (Review)

I haven’t reviewed anything on wellness on here yet, but as I’m in tech week, this seemed like the right time to do so.   I was in Target today with the ambitious goal of solely buying paper towels and an eye shadow pallet (ha) and found myself perusing the medicine aisle. When you have been…

Green Beauty Empties

  The interesting thing about reviewing products is that once I get halfway or three-quarters of the way through, my opinions could be completely different. I’ve been binging YouTube videos like crazy lately and am starting to find that empty product videos are much more informative and helpful than initial reviews. So here are a…

Rating: B Starring: Hugh Grant, Drew Barrymore Director: Marc Lawrence Screenplay: Marc Lawrence Music by: Adam Schlesinger         A few days ago my mother and I made a shocking discovery. I had never seen Pretty Woman. As someone who almost exclusively watched romantic comedies in her teen years (Disney hadn’t made their post-renaissance…

Shop Small Saturday: Sea Essentials

As a blogger who is a “Buy Local” enthusiast, I feel like it’s practically my obligation to share the various local or small businesses that I love and enjoy. So once a month I will be posting a new segment off my blog I’m calling “Shop Small Saturday” in which I will feature a small business,…

Sunday Stills

Better late than never! Tech week mirror shot. Short-lived spring weather. Random winter in April. The only pulled pork I have ever liked, brought to you by my sister. Supporting friends’ shows. Happy Sunday! – T

Farmers’ Market Opening Day!

Cold or no cold (weather and illness), nothing was going to stop me from making it to opening day of my local farmers’ market. I was under slept and under caffeinated, but the rush of pulling into my usual parking space and seeing the familiar scene of white tents and a meandering crowd was enough…

Caboo, and Other Paper Products

Typically colds don’t inspire me to do much of anything, but today as I blew my nose and reminded myself, “This, too, shall pass,” I was inspired to write a post about the paper products I use. One of my favorite brands is Caboo, a company that makes paper products out of bamboo and sugar cane….
