Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. This weekend I worked really hard to finish up a very special video to follow in my next blog post. It is something I have needed to do for a bit because I start back to school next week for an on-line class this semester, so I will not be able to film as often. I will still pop in from time to time on my blog and of course share regularly on my social media, but filming and editing, even as basic as my videos are…takes a quite bit of time. Continue reading

I am scratching things off of the perpetual “to do” list that seems ever growing and that includes sharing this super quick video of one of my favorite quick meals. This video highlights a few favorite brands if you are looking to increase your options for grass fed and pasture-raised eating in the New Year. Continue reading

shift-con-2If words like natural, organic, nonGMO, sustainable, grass fed, & eco-friendly are part of your healthy living love language…you’ll love this new series.

ShiftCon was held in New Orleans…December 1-3, 2016, and I was given the glorious opportunity to attend! ShiftCon is a 3-day blogger education & networking conference & expo for online publishers who provide content related to  natural, organic, eco-friendly & green lifestyles. ShiftCon is sponsored by food, health & wellness brands with shared values and there were about 40 brands there, sharing the love!  I came home with so much stuff that there is no way I can share it all in one post or video, so I decided to break it up into categories and give you a mini series.

Hi Everyone!!!

For a list of ingredient to avoid, I love this simple wallet card and Never List from Beautycounter. I have this saved on my iPhone and use it anytime I need to read a label. Continue reading
