Natural Makeup Remover

Once you turn 30 I think a lot changes.  A ton changed for me since my first daughter was born on my thirtieth birthday.  So not only did I hit the big 3-0, but I also quickly learned to survive on little sleep.  Little sleep meant that I had to start wearing a bit more makeup then I did in the past.  I was an athlete through high school and …continue reading

Do you have a front load washer or know someone that does?  Have you noticed something about your washer yet?  Might it be that your washing machine isn’t all that clean?  I have a sneaking suspicious that you’re most likely thinking, “How did she know that?”  Don’t bow your head in shame.  I know because I was there and I couldn’t believe that my washing machine that cost more 1k …continue reading
