Spring & Moose

We had more snow than normal this year which was totally fine by me. I adore a fully covered ground all winter long. But…now that *spring* is here I have that itch, probably like most of you. And by golly, that snow can’t melt quick enough! We still have about 2 foot, though, so it…

Emerging

I feel like I am finally ready to emerge from…what exactly, I don’t know. But what I do know is that somehow it’s been months? Almost years? Since I’ve consistently written on my blog. And I’m sad at myself. Because I had so much great stuff to share in that time, and now I’m feeling…

Trades of Hope

I don’t know about you but things like sex trafficking and acid attacks, or children who go to bed hungry, and extreme poverty are unacceptable to me. It breaks my heart to hear that in Haiti, most of the orphans aren’t actually orphans. Their parents simply can’t find work to pay for food and so…

French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Ahh. The traditional vanilla latte. So delicious in all it’s simpleness, I could probably drink this one straight. But that would be gross, so I won’t. Ha!  For a full list of all my homemade coffee creamers click here.  Sweetened Condensed Milk: 1/2 cup very hot water 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla…

Gingersnap Coffee Creamer

So there’s Starbucks. And then there’s homemade. I’m not gonna lie–if you are used to super sugared up, fakey tasting coffee (hey–I don’t judge, sometimes I totally indulge) then the flavor of the homemade version may take some getting used to. However, I guarantee that your taste buds will adapt and you will fall in…

Microdermabrasion

Need a little exfoliating power on your face? Well this is where it’s at, my friends!  Honestly I don’t know very much about microdermabrasion other than they use some little tool to scrape all the dead skin off. Or something like that. I’m not at all sure why you need to go in and have…

Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Mmm, this creamer is a little more “mild” than some of them. The flavor is pretty simple which is sometimes super delicious. It’s just a bit of a twist on the vanilla latte with just a touch of cinnamon added to the mix.  For a full list of my homemade creamers click here. Sweetened Condensed Milk:…

Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

Ah yes. A classic to say the least. And yes. My version is a wee bit more natural tasting. But still very peppermint-y and oh so delish!  For a full list of my homemade creamers click here.  Sweetened Condensed Milk: 1/2 cup very hot water 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2/3…
