How I Clear Up My Eczema | Glowy, Healthy Skin Edition

I hosted a live video chat on my Instagram channel earlier this week sharing how eczema has affected not only me but my children for years. Eczema has been a skin problem that has plagued me and my children and I have been on a diligent search to find a solution that would clear up the irritating breakouts. I’m not saying I’ve found a cure, but I’ve definitely found that the following solutions have reduced our eczema flare ups dramatically. Use an apple cider vinegar rinse as needed.

How to Plan Ahead for a Busy Week

Today’s tips to make busy weeks bearable is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kellogg’s Special K. Does anyone besides me sacrifice their own well being to make sure everything gets done?

February Goals

I’m not sure if this will be a monthly post or a one-time thing, but I wanted to give y’all a glimpse of what my monthly goals look like in some key areas of my life.  If I had to describe myself I’d have to say that I am a reluctant goal setter. What I mean, is I don’t do well with setting goals for every single thing. For instance, I find that setting income goals don’t work for me. When I set them too low I feel like I didn’t believe in my abilities, but when I set them too high, I feel like I wanted something God didn’t want for me. For that reason, I don’t set income goals per se.  That being [Click here to continue reading]
