Just a little catch up. I hope everyone is having a great Monday or had a great Monday.

2017 is bringing about more change for this blog, along with all of my other entrepreneurial ventures that I have going on. So for now I'm going to write a little something, a little Monday catch-up on how things are in general. Well next week, if I have something to say.

Of course you can also keep up with me on my podcast (My Views, Extended), which comes out on Tuesdays (most of the time).

Till next time,


If you live in a colder climate, this DIY Hair & Body Butter can be a lifesaver. The cold, strong winds and/or constant hand washing can wreak havoc on our hair & skin. Try my recipe out. A little goes a long way. As always use what you have or can access. The measurements are approximate. Adjust the formula to your liking.

Check out the video here & please come back and share how your hair and/skin feels after a few weeks!

You'll need: 2 heat proof containers; hot water; spatula; whisk or electric hand mixer; 2 clean & dry containers with lids.
