Is Jaka Jamu the Jamu For You?

There is nothing that I love to see more than an absolute boss lady taking charge, running her business and not needing anyone’s help. Except, seeing two absolute boss ladies working together to create a company with room for both of their unique personalities and strengths and just supporting the crap out of each other in general.

I love Jaka Jamu because it’s delicious, trendy, super hydrating and run by two literally awesome power babes, Caitlin and Kristina.

The Less Sweet Life – 3 Foods I Use Everyday to Shake Sugar

The road to a sugar free lifestyle is paved with setbacks, failures and obligatory birthday cakes, but it is 100% a road worth traveling. My journey to quit sugar started for me when I quit my job. A job that I loved by included too many cupcakes for breakfast and frosting taste tests.

In order for me to get to a place where I don’t consume any sugar, I need time and I need a lot of help. Each month I’m still noticing what feels like a significant improvement in the way I not only eat sugar, but also the way I feel regarding sugar. It’s been three years. For that, I have my own determination and three awesome products to thank.

Raise Your Bar.

I’m usually a huge fan of bars. I love the concept of a lot of nutrition being shrunken down into a little bitty baby package. I’m okay with the concept of a lot of filling calories being shrunken down into something that can fit in the palm of your hand. But. I am literally super not cool with a lot of garbage being shrunken down so you can basically just unhinge your jaw a little and swallow it in one go.

That’s a trap.

Did Millennials Kill the Mushroom Industry?

In the past two months I have begged information from multiple sources regarding the quality and efficacy of several brands of medicinal mushrooms. I have heard people with something to gain make claims and I have encouraged people with nothing to gain to talk over them.

Weird Kid Gift Guide – 2018

So my loves are getting older. Developing tastes and preferences. Little tiny bite sized personalities and let me tell you, these children are not your average.
All counted, I’ve got seven nieces and nephews. And not a single one of them is boring.

So I’ve compiled a gift guide, to ensure thorough spoiling during winter holidays or for birthdays because it’s important to know that even if the kids in your life are unpredictable, the look on their faces when they open their gifts shouldn’t be.

Bar Round Up – or… Square Off….

 I know that when people say ‘I get asked all day long…’ it sounds like an exaggeration. But I am being 100% real when I tell you that someday, all day long, people are asking me what my favorite something is. 

Protein powder. Bars. Juice. Berry. Vitamin D Supplement. Alt Grain. Honestly, the questions just keep on coming. 

And I love it. Because this girl is never without an opinion.

Why So Sociable?

A lot of the people who know me in real life, frequently approach me and ask about my Instagram. Sometimes they are complementary, sometimes they are noticeably uncomfortable and sometimes they seem like they try to get a rise out of me.

I have, literally, two thousand followers, (small potatoes). But its very obvious how much effort I put into my pictures (captions, not so much) and I think that makes people who know me curious.
