It’s been an interesting few months over here on the skin care front. Some massive allergies that left my eyes swollen shut the week of Thanksgiving had me rethinking detergents, creams, make-up and lotions. I feared it was our new pup who doesn’t shed (which does NOT mean she is hypo-allergenic I have learned!), but… read more

This post is all about nutrition and wellness. It’s time. Three babies later I must admit that my body feels like it’s gone 5 rounds in the ring with a heavyweight boxer.
