As a child, one of the things I enjoyed doing, especially on rainy days, was coloring. I remember my mom having this really cool table in our basement that had a bunch of different matchbook covers on it with a clear coating over top of it and that was our table to color at, play with Play-Doh, etc. We also had a huge shoe box filled with crayons. Ironically enough, my mom still has that shoe box of crayons and my kids now color with them! Being a child always on the go and wanting to play outside with friends, coloring on those rainy days was the next best thing. Now, as an adult, I’d give anything to get back to those rainy days of relaxation with a little art therapy!!

I just recently learned about Art Therapy Collection. This subscription based company brings coloring back to adults! It forces us to take time out of our days to relax and do something that brings us back to our childhood…color!

Dental health is something I am very passionate about. I wasn't always this passionate about my teeth health. You see, I used to have a horrible, irrational fear of the dentist. It was bad. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I wasn't able to go to the dentist because any time I held my mouth open for any period of time, I would puke. Couple that … [Read More...]

Valentine's day is not really my favorite holiday. It's not that anything bad ever happened on Valentine's day, I mean...I do like it...I just don't care about it all that much.

Kind of like when you cook bacon and your house smells of bacon grease all weekend long. I know everyone loves bacon, but that's the worst. I used to have a citrus scrub that someone bought me … [Read More...]

I will never do that...so why is it on my list? Is it because it's one of those things that are on EVERYONE's bucket list? Because lets face it...I'll never jump … [Read More...]
