Posted by navyhawkins on April 17, 2019 in Uncategorized |

I have been managing my fibro pretty well since diagnosis last year. However, this winter has been brutal. I have had 2 bad flares, one which forced me to take 3 days off work (plus I got glutened which made it worse).   This past week, again a flare. I feel like the tinman so […]

I did it. I cancelled Ipsy. I enjoyed some of the products I got, however for $20 CAD, I found the value not there. 5 samples. And, when I discovered an item I liked, I could not find it Sephora.  I would be able to find it online but, the exchange rate and the shipping […]

I read an article on the Huff Post over the last week entitled “Can We Bring the Holidays Down a Notch?” The article is asking parents to stop going all out for the minor holidays like Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day,  100 Days of School and the list goes on and on. While I appreciate […]
