Saturday, August 31, 2013      14 comments

I have Kindle cookbooks, but all of the recipes require cooking something beforehand. Does anyone have a simple recipe where you just throw the stuff in and uncover it hours later? I'd appreciate it. Have a happy, healthy holiday weekend... Read more

My life has been one great big joke, a dance that's walked, a song that's spoke. I laugh so hard I almost choke when I think about myself. Maya Angelou From a very early age, I always said that lif... Read more

A friend bought me a copy of the 9/2 magazine "Woman's World." There's an article by Dr. Oz on weight loss. I've heard of him, but don't watch TV so not very familiar. In the article, he and several other MD's rave about the Ayurvedic mir... Read more

The best advice I got before buying my fitbit was to make sure to put it in the same place every night when taking it off my clothing. Which I've done - pretty much. The other day, I was talking to some grocery clerk acquaintances at the s... Read more

Tuesday, August 20, 2013      15 comments

About a week ago, I blogged about derma rolling and how it was making my skin glow. Truthfully, there was no reason for me to start doing it other than I thought it would make my skin glow. I didn't need to do it, but I was intrigued. Since I... Read more
