How to Get Over a Stomach Bug Quick

How to Get Over a Stomach Bug Quick

So not too long ago the stomach bug hit our house HARD. Both the little and Nate were puking their guts out (though thankfully not on the same days). Really and truly, this rarely happens. I can count on one hand the times that Nate has been sick since we have been married. We work very hard to take fortify our immune systems and it shows. But this dang bug slipped by. 

I was SO incredibly thankful that we were well stocked on all of our favorite (and proven) natural wellness tools.

My Honest Review of Annmarie Skin Care Masks

My Honest Review of  Annmarie Skin Care Masks

It’s no secret that “masking” is all the rage in the beauty industry. There are a BILLION options out there. While some boast amazing results and show some pretty stunning before and after photos, many of these “super masks” have some pretty questionable ingredients.

Green Tidings: A Natural Deodorant That Actually Works

Green Tidings: A Natural Deodorant That Actually Works

In our journey to use healthy products in and on our bodies, some things have been easier to swap out than others. One of the hardest things for me to switch over was my deodorant. I have always been really good at sweating. What can I say, it’s a skill.

 

When I played sports in high school, I distinctly remember buying stronger and stronger deodorant because my old stuff “wasn’t working” to keep me from sweating. Hearing that the aluminum is what helped me not sweat, I started choosing deodorants with higher and higher aluminum content. Dumb move, kid. Dumb move.

 

Oh how I wish that I had known then what I know now about deodorant. Hindsight is 20/20 though isn’t it?
