Aroma Artisan: Review and Giveaway

You might have noticed that I'm on a rather organic/all-natural product kick right now. On my quest for some new personal care products that pass my standards, I discovered Aroma Artisan at Etsy, a company that sells exactly what I was looking for - cold process soaps and unique essential oils with custom fragrances.

We’ll Miss You Patrick Swayze

It saddened me every time I saw one of Patrick Swayze's photos on the cover of a magazine in the grocery. Though I'm sure that he didn't want his fans to feel sorry for him, it was hard to see such a vital, handsome man with a lively career in film languish in such a way.

Liberation

Liberation: Posing Nude, Shaving Your Head, and Skinny Dipping What makes a woman feel free? Is it dancing to her favorite tunes while no one is looking or driving down a country road at 75 MPH (that one might be more of a man thing)?

Organic Tea At It’s Best

Sitting on the deck with a cup of quality tea, a good book, and a cool September breeze in my face is what I call a perfect way to spend a few moments of peace. There is truly something calming about taking in the scent of a hot beverage that you know is good for you. Because finding new organic products and edibles is one of my passions, I went looking and found a wonderful source for all-natural, gourmet teas.

Deja Vu

Landing in Philadelphia for Journey trip #33, I hopped into my car and set Betty (my GPS) to navigate me to Scranton. On the phone with my sister-in-law, I realized I’d been there before. You know that crazy Dèjá Vu feeling that washes over you? And then it hit me.

Fortunate Friday: Constructive Criticism

A part of coaching a woman to achieve true life fulfillment and happiness is to help her see where she is and where she wants to go. I've had to do a lot of self-coaching over the years just to stay sane and moving forward. And, to tell you the truth, I still have many areas in my life that need work. We all do.

Fortunate Friday: New Friends

Since I started this blog back in March, I have learned how quickly that you can go from being scared of the Word Press Dashboard to whizzing around it like a Cirque Du Soliel aerialist. Another thing that magically happens is making new web friends - the topic of this Fortunate Friday (a new column for Fridays that talks about the fortunes of blogging).

Making Decisions

Today's topic is one with which many have trouble - on a daily basis. It is making decisions and acting upon them. I, for one, am one of those who don't find making some decisions to be pleasant; therefore, I avoid them. When I say this, I don't mean your every day ones like which breakfast cereal to buy or what shoes should I wear today; no, the ones I speak of are much more life-changing and some can even be hazardous or painful.
