I’m bringing you a self-care gift guide featuring some of my favorite products this week. From candles to chocolates, there’s a self-care option for everyone! This post contains some affiliate links 1. Honey Mama’s Chocolate Honey Mama’s is by far my favorite chocolate. I first had it when I was in LA, then went home and immediately bought more online. They are made using only five whole food, nutrient-rich ingredients: raw honey, cacao powder, coconut oil, Himalayan pink salt, and either sprouted almonds or shredded coconut. The consistency is unlike any other chocolate I’ve tried and I simply love it. They are… View Post

This is a sponsored post on behalf of UNTAMED™ by 4health® Here we are, back again with another post about my dog. I’m just pretty happy that I stretched it two months before there was another one.

For a while it even killed me to bake chicken because I felt like it took too long. The only time I spend more than that is when I make an epic cheesecake or some other baking masterpiece, because that I actually enjoy. For anyone else who wants to enjoy… View Post

This post may not resonate with many of you, but I know it applies to at least some. I haven’t had a drink in 7.5 years. It’s certainly not because I don’t want to, but because I’m someone who doesn’t know when to stop once I start.

I felt relieved that people may not point out that I had had too much or focus on what I was doing because they would likely be drinking as well. Alcohol… View Post
