Although I don’t spend a ton of time blogging I wanted to share some things with anyone that wants to know.

I have written about being ‘poo’ free and not washing my hair with regular shampoo or using conditioner.  I’ve washed my hair this way for almost 2 years now and have really come to enjoy being ‘poo’ free.  Better for me and better for the environment.  I have also talked about not using normal cleansers in general for the house cleaning and cosmetics wise.  All of these little changes have been important to me and I have enjoyed the journey.

Today I want to talk to you about the ‘cosmetics’ that I actually use now.  I am so impressed with these products that I have actually signed up to share them with everyone I know.

The first is NeriumAD.  The product is an anti-aging cream that actually delivers what it says it will.  In the beauty industry an anti-aging product that shows an improvement of 2-5% is considered remarkable.  Nerium has an improvement of 20-60%! This is absolutely unheard of.  If you look at you will see phone camera photos of people’s results that have been untouched or photoshopped.  You can see the science that proves these results that were performed by a third party.  I can’t say enough about this product and the changes it has made in my skin.  It is also one of the reasons I was able to spend 2 months camping while deciding where I wanted to spend some time outside of Wisconsin.

The second product line I want to talk about is Morrocco Method.  I have been using these products for almost a month and have been impressed.  I have landed in a high mountain dessert and this type of climate is hell on my hair.  Since I moved here my hair has gone from curly-ish to frizzy and dry.  Nothing I added seemed to be helping with the frizzy dryness.  I broke down and decided to try the Morrocco Method shampoos, conditioners and detox products.  I can not believe the difference I’m seeing already.  Use this link and check out the product line for yourself.  I recommend trying the trial packs or the travel packs until you decide which shampoos and conditioners you like the best.

I hope that some of you join me on this journey of not using products that don’t work and only put money in the pockets of large corporations.  I hope to see some of you on either of my websites purchasing and loving your new products.



Today I understand why suicide rates are the highest at this time of year.  I never thought it would bother me to be on my own but today I question why I brought 4 children into this world, gave them the tools to be good, productive individuals and tried to protect them from a man that, although I knew he wasn’t the best, would have beaten them if I hadn’t stepped in.

Two days ago was my birthday.  All I received from these 4 children was basically indifference, also known as the opposite of love.  Today is Thanksgiving and I have received nothing from these children except for a response from 2 of them when I sent them a Thanksgiving text.  I have not received a phone call or an inquiry as to what I might be doing today or on my birthday or I am actually doing.  Instead, these children of mine, are spending the day with the man that I protected them from.  

I spent more than half my life creating Thanksgiving and Christmas meals and traditions that they are now sharing with a man that could have cared less for them when they were growing up and his wife.  My recipes, my traditions are being shared with people that don’t actually deserve to eat food that well made with the children I raised.  

I would love to know where I went wrong that my children can’t love and respect me enough to at least call and see how I’m doing during what I consider to be my only favorite holiday.  I wonder if they would actually miss me if I were to leave this world today.

Today I am sad.
