Function of Beauty: A Review

Function of Beauty…Personalized shampoo? At first, I thought maybe it was a scam. My friend told me that she ordered personalized shampoo from Function of Beauty and loved it. I thought it was pretty expensive for a few bottles of shampoo. But she said that her hair really felt a lot healthier and stronger. I […]

Pilates for the Average Person

Pilates for the Average Person

Pilates. What mental images does that word bring to your mind? For me, I think of rich, snooty, brainless blondes from some of the chick flicks that I have watched over the years. It brings to mind a passtime for wealthy people who have nothing else to do with their time. I never considered it […]

My Postpartum Rollercoaster

My Postpartum Rollercoaster

I really don’t like rollercoasters. The amusement park kind or the hypothetical kind. I am so fine, happier even, being the “stuff holder” and waiting for everyone to enjoy their ride. That is my happy place. But you can’t be your own “stuff holder”. When your emotions are going nutso, who holds your stuff while […]
