Reading Small Print Is Getting Harder!

Reading Fine Print

Reading small print is something that I’ve been struggling with for a little while now. However, I’ve always been so grateful for my vision. I’ve had a unique journey with regards to my eyes and staying on top of my eye health is very important to me. My journey started off at Sick Kids, feeling terrified while sitting in a long exam room. The result of that first visit was that I had to wear an eye patch to strengthen my weaker eye. Those were not fun times, although my Mom did help make it a bit more enjoyable by … Continue reading

Whole Blends – Making My Hair Soft and Smooth

Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner

In the fall of 2014, our family made a shift in the types of products that we use. This shift started years ago, but it became official when I started to remove almost all chemical cleaners from my home. I began thinking that not only did I want harsh cleaning chemicals OUT of my house, but it became very important to change the types of products that we were using on our bodies too. The skin on our body is our largest organ and it soaks in everything. Because of this, I am always reading ingredients carefully and becoming more … Continue reading

At the Cottage with Bugs

Cottaging with Bugs

The cottage with bugs is inevitable, right? Not everyone is a fan of bugs, however and bugs don’t love all people equally either! Oh, those bugs….I’m all for equality! Spread the love, will you? My daughter is a prime example of this. Mosquitoes absolutely adore her! We always joke that she is super sweet and that is why the bugs love her so much. Those bug bites on the back of her legs are just the start of our cottage trip last summer! Aside from the bugs, I am a HUGE fan of going to the cottage. When I was … Continue reading

How to Teach Children How to Wash Their Hands

live clean giveaway

My hands ALWAYS have to be clean. I cannot stand it if I have dirty hands. It is to the extreme folks! I am a bit of a germaphobe, but that is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the feeling of “not clean” hands. You know that feeling? Perhaps you don’t. Perhaps you weren’t blessed with first child syndrome like I am. Do you know what I’m talking about: first child syndrome? My Mom blames my persistent need to always have clean hands on being a first child. You see, as her first child, she constantly … Continue reading

Your Morning Makeup Routine {Giveaway}

Morning Makeup Routine Giveaway

What is your morning makeup routine? Do you have one? When it comes to “makeup must haves”, mine are very simple. I need to wash my face, put on some cream, throw on a light coating of makeup to hide skin imperfections, toss on a bit of powder and I’m ready for the day. Those are my minimum requirements if I am leaving the house. I will admit, like any busy Mom, that there definitely are mornings where I am at the bus stop without the makeup, but you had better believe that as soon as I come home I … Continue reading
