Law of Attraction and Spirituality for Non-Hippies

Law of Attraction and Spirituality for Non-Hippies

First of all, let me say that I’m kind of a hippie, and the title is not meant to be hippie-hating. I’m just making a joke that sometimes spirituality seems inaccessible because of the more extreme believers of the beliefs that exist. Know what I am saying? I believe in the law of attraction, but not to the point of being illogical or blind to my reality. I take what I like and what works for me, and I leave…

All About Curly Hair! Care, Cut, Styling and Products

I always get a lot of questions about my hair, and I LOVE talking about it, probably because I hated it for so long before learning to love it. It is my belief that your hair looks best when you style it the way it wants to be styled! And since learning how to take care of my curly hair, it has become very low maintenance. I still have bad hair days, but I’ve learned what to do to make…

My First StitchFix! Was It Worth It? Personal Stylist Subscription Box

I ordered my first Stitch Fix subscription box! Order yours here. I received 5 items in the $50-100 range, and each item was under $60. You can also choose the range “as cheap as possible” but since this was my first box, I didn’t want to limit quality TOO much. The clothes are VERY well made. Nice materials, and as the reviews suggested, PERFECT fit. I am 5 3″ and usually wear a 6 or 8 in the bottom (medium…

Oswald would pump a gay man full of nausea-inducing drugs before surrounding him with glasses of urine and playing audio recordings of men having sex. Oswald was attempting to “overdose”…

How to Make Your Own 15 Minute Meals – Including My New DELISH Recipe

I have had this title in mind FOREVER: “5 Meals With 5 Ingredients”. But…it’s not working out. I don’t have enough recipes to write about, but I DID develop a method to my meal madness lately that I am happy to share. Since Chris and I moved to the Fo’ Fo’, he has been leaving earlier and coming home later. Since my commute to work is almost exactly the same distance it was before I moved, I have been cooking most days….

Eating Everything (And and Too Much of It) When I want to eat something, I eat it. For example, at an event at work recently I ordered pizza for dinner. I had one piece and felt good about it. I had a second piece and felt…less good about it….

Fruit, Religion and Cult Mentality | An Unusual Personal Story

Fruit, Religion and Cult Mentality | An Unusual Personal Story

By: Alison Reeves As many of you know, last year I ate almost completely raw for a full month, and then 2 raw meals a day for the next 2 months after that. All in all, for about 18 months, I ate two or more raw meals a day on weekdays. I was vegan for a bit, and the rest of the time I was pescetarian (I ate no animal products except occasional fish).
