Welcome to Work it Wednesday - only the most fabulous party in town! {OK, so I may be partial.} Did you have a wonderful Easter weekend? I hope you had some relaxing time with family and friends.

DIY Glittery Monogrammed T-shirt + Silhouette Promotion and Giveaway!!

DIY Glittery Monogrammed T-shirt

Since I'm from the South, it's a given that I love all things monogrammed. It's genetic, I'm pretty sure.

So, recently I've been exploring healthy, natural health solutions. And I've been reading up on different toxins in most everything I consume. This has led me to start using coconut oil for moisturizer and I just made some homemade body butter to … [Read more...]
