December 30th, 2013 | Living, Personal

I like to take a little time at the end of every year for a personal reflection back on the past year… to express gratitude for the lessons learned, for the dreams that have come to fruition, as well as areas of my life that I want to improve upon.

August 3rd, 2012 | Living, Personal, Practical Living

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. What you put on it is just as important as what you put in your mouth. According to the FDA, we each use 9 personal care products daily, containing about 126 chemical ingredients.
