Where I live in Charlotte, there are just a small handful of holistic practices and you can wait months to try to get an appointment with...

Eat Pretty, Live Well + Giveaway

It’s safe to say I don’t always take as good of care of myself as I should, as evidenced in my post about about self love. Like a lot of moms of young kids, I grab what’s most convenient to eat and get way less rest than I should. At the end of the day though, all these short cuts add up and I not only feel...

What’s That Smell?
