How I Keep My Hair Healthy!

  Last fall, I cut my hair off and decided to go relaxer free. It’s all a part of my journey to remove as many chemicals, preservatives, and artificial ingredients from my life. I try to use mostly natural products except for hair dye. I think I’ve found a solid hair routine for my TWA…

Tuscan-Style Pork Chops & Salsa Verde

This was a tasty Blue Apron meal that took a twist. Blue Apron delivers my meal boxes on Tuesday,  but I didn’t cook this meal until Sunday. The kale had wilted, so I improvised and cooked my yummy canned greens. Ingredients: 2 Boneless, Center-Cut Pork Chops 1 can of French cut green beans Butter 2 cloves Garlic-roughly…

Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil …Wow!!

I had given up on Shea Moisture hair products until I tried the Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration line. Honey is my hair’s best friend, and this line delivers. It moisturizes and repairs dry damaged hair. Since I color my hair, this shampoo and deep conditioner give my hair the TLC it needs….

Home Spa Day: From Head to Toes

On the weekend, I set aside some time for a home spa day.  I like to pamper myself and relieve stress from the work week. This week I’m going to use Tree Hut’s Coconut Lime body wash, sugar scrub, and body butter. These products smell amazing, and they’re affordable at around $7 each. This scent…

I love gumbo, but I’m a lazy cook. Here’s my recipe for a quick spicy gumbo that takes less than an hour to make. Ingredients 1 package of turkey sausage. This Garrett Valley All Natural Smoked Turkey Kielbasa was $6 which was pricey, but the taste was out of this world. 1 can of sweet…

Drug Store Makeup that I Love!

I subscribe to several monthly makeup boxes, so admittedly I have loads of makeup. I haven’t needed to buy mascara in years. I usually get a sample that does a decent job. I was in Meijer the other day when I decided I needed a new mascara. One that does better than just a decent…

Easy Holiday Turkey Breast

Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas and time to cook up another big family dinner. In many homes, turkey makes another appearance. There’s a way to have mouth-watering turkey with no preparation. Just let the oven do the work. Butterball’s Everyday Ready to Roast is nothing short of a miracle. Everything you need is…

A New “Natural” Look

I recently decided to stop getting relaxers and wear my hair as it grows out of my head…curly and coily. I’ve done this before. About ten years ago, I had a health issue that thinned my normally thick hair. I decided to wear weaves while my hair recovered. Soon my hair grew back longer than…

Sephora PlayBox-October 2018

I believe I’ve given all my eye cream samples away, so I’ll put this one to use right away. I love Philosophy beauty products. Tarte hydrating primer. Thanks to these subscription boxes, I never buy primer. This one will be used accordingly. Benefit Gimme Brow in the color 5. I love this stuff and often…
