Unlike my kids who get to travel to beautiful beaches every summer, driving to the country to visit family is what I did on vacation when […]

Simple is better with Kukui Oil

Many times in life, you realize simple is better.

Think about it. Some of the best meals you make have just a few simple ingredients. And, when people talk about their ideal day, they don’t give a laundry list of things they want to do. They focus on a few simple things that matter the most.

There’s nothing more satisfying to me than discovering simpler, better ways.

During a family trip to Hawaii, to my surprise, I made a […]

Consider Natural Soap as a Substitute for Shampoo

I washed my hair, blew it dry and flat ironed it every day. I have curly hair. And like most girls with curly hair, I LOVE straight hair. Call me high maintenance, but I like my straight hair, so I continued to follow this process day after day, year after year.

Over time, this hair recipe resulted in a dry hair disaster. When I realized that people were distracted by my fly-away hairs wavering above my […]
