*I was provided with a Women’s Health and Fertility test from EverlyWell at no charge. Thanks as always for the support! You may remember that a little over a year ago I did a food sensitivity test with EverlyWell. It was one of the things that I had wanted to do since I started blogging, and it helped me feel legit as I worked on growing this corner of the internet. The other was to go on a sponsored influencer trip, which also happened last year, so I felt like I had MADE IT. When they contacted me this year… View Post

Last week I spent five days at a place called Modfarm in Michigan City, Indiana. It was a magical five days and I’m more than happy with the outcome of my trip. As you know, I decided I wanted to get away to concentrate on writing my book with little interruptions.

As new products started popping up, I wasn’t sure quite how they differed from one another. This post… View Post

Last week I tried cupping and this week I’m telling you all about it. 🙂 As I search for ways to slow down and work my schedule into something a little more manageable, I’ve felt pulled to widen my wellness experiences. I’m a big believer that I can’t really talk about something or give my opinion unless I’ve tried it. That was certainly a philosophy that got me into trouble during my using days as I decided I couldn’t possibly stop until I had tried all the drugs there were to try. Pro tip: not advised. ANYHOO, I haven’t tried a… View Post

*This post is in partnership with Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market stores. All opinions are my own. I LOVE grocery stores. I could spend literally hours wandering the aisles, looking at products, and buying all the food. I would say libraries and grocery stores are my two happiest places to spend time. This is my life. I was contacted by Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market, a natural and organic grocery store. To my embarrassment, I had never heard of it aside from knowing my friend Ashley shops there in Michigan. I was surprised to find out that they have a location in… View Post
