~Happy New Year everyone! In 2020 I'm looking forward to new discoveries in healthy living and hopefully some new farmer's markets! *Update: I'm no longer sick! 😀 I will, however, be writing at least 2 more posts in my Sickness Saga in the next day or two so be on the look out for those.
~Today's a better day, not as stuffy and not coughing as much. Does that mean I'm finally on the mend?! God I hope so -_- Earlier this week I was okay enough to run errands around town before meeting some friends. In the middle of errand running, I decided to treat myself to a rare… Continue reading Sickness Saga Part 2: Becoming a medicine baller
~Ever hear of the expression 'I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired'? Well, that's me. To a T. In every literal sense of the word For over a month (though it feels like much longer) I've been battling concurrent colds after recovering from pneumonia. Yeah, the big P. The next few blog… Continue reading Sickness Saga Part 1: The Beginning
~Last weekend my fiance and I checked out the Strawberry Festival, an annual event held in Long Grove, IL from June 21-23 (we went on the 21st since we both had the day off). It was about an hour drive from where I live, but thankfully traffic wasn't bad. The main road took us on… Continue reading Long Grove Strawberry Fest 2019

~Can you believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away?! Good thing I finished all my Christmas shopping lol. But if you didn't, I have a place where you'll find the perfect gift: Christkindlmarket in downtown Naperville (or Chicago, but Naperville is closer for me). I've been wanting to go to Christkindlmarket for… Continue reading Countdown to Christmas
~While I am not Jewish (I happen to be Catholic), I still feel it's important to highlight and respect other cultures' traditions, especially around the holidays and in this time of worldly strife. Hanukkah, also know as the Festival of Lights, started today at sunset and lasts for 8 days, representing the 8 days the… Continue reading Happy Hanukkah!
~So the Burt's Bees Beauty Challenge has come to its end, and I have mixed feelings about the gentle foaming cleanser with royal jelly. I like it because of how gentle it is and the fact that it's foam is pretty cool in and of itself. This was my first time using a foam cleanser… Continue reading Burt’s Bees Beauty Challenge: Final Thoughts
~Playing a little catch up today, was too tired to post yesterday. Everything is still going well with the challenge, still using both products twice daily (morning and night). With the acne spot treatment, it did help to clear up the spots on my chin, but a new pimple apppeared overnight Hopefully with a… Continue reading Burt’s Bees Beauty Challenge: Day 2 (yesterday)
