I’ll Be Home(made) For Christmas

Have Jars Will Travel

Thanksgiving is the major holiday that jump starts the grandiose holiday season. That also means lots and lots of traveling for many. Whilst on our Turkey Day travels, I packed an arsenal of travel products and I wanted to share their successes. Just because we are traveling, doesn’t mean we start using junk-filled, easily accessible store bought products. No. No. We make it, pack it, and bring it. Continue reading “Have Jars Will Travel”

Have you heard of these little miracles of awesomeness? A berry that can wash things?!?! GET. OUT! I’ve been playing around with soap nuts, soap berries, or whatever you want to call them for a few years now. I was first introduced to them when I tried going “no poo” with my shampoo routine, but I have very coarse hair and ridiculously hard water… it was a “no” from me. My city water friends have raved about their valiant efforts. Continue reading “Are You (Soap) Nuts?!?!”
