Through my research I am finding that many natural cleaning products can be put to use in our home and used for personal care reasons, too! Definitely a win-win!

Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster

I received a free copy of Romancing My Love written by Melissa Foster to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours. No other financial compensation was received and, as always, all opinions shared are 100% mine.

 My Review of Romancing My Love

Skin Care: The Oil Cleansing Method

A couple of years ago I was having the hardest time adjusting to my changing skin type – three pregnancies, stress, getting (dare I say it) older, adjusting to a new home and different water source, the list could go on and on.

The Importance Of Family Emergency Plans #GetReady

Twenty-five years ago, Hurricane Hugo made landfall at Charleston, South Carolina as a Category 4 Hurricane. Hugo left 60,000 people in the state homeless, 270,000 temporarily unemployed and 54,000 residents seeking disaster assistance. Many were without power for two weeks or more.

I remember going to bed the night before the storm hit. My mother, a Registered Nurse, was working the night shift and it was just us girls and my Daddy. He’s a worrier and light-sleeper.
