About four years ago I got serious with working out. It was difficult starting out. I’d make excuses – too tired, too hot, too much – but then it gradually turned into something I love to do now. My job is stressful, and it can be overwhelming at times. I’m also a workaholic, often working… Continue reading Exercise is Life
I’m a perfectionist, and it’s something I’ve struggled with since at least high school. It mostly affects me in my work life, and it affected me immensely when I was in school.

With the warm sunshine (yay, vitamin D!) and longer days, I’m reminded of maintaining healthy balance in my life. Here’s a glimpse at what… Continue reading …Balance…
A few years ago, I started making the switch to all-natural products for everything from cleaning supplies to skincare. Harsh, toxic ingredients were not doing my skin any favors.
