Over To The Dark Side

Y’all know I love a good bedding update! I’ve been on the bright white and neutral bedding band wagon for years. Last year when I discovered my favorite sheets (Target’s Threshold Performance Sheets) I ventured away from all white and got a few cute patterns.

I bought her myself around sophomore year of college after asking my mom and boyfriend for a puppy for Christmas. They didn’t deliver and I  wished I’d written Santa a letter in the off chance that he still believed in me…. Well – I was on a doggie mission and […]

What Are Probiotics?

What are Probiotics? Probiotics are typically defined as good bacteria or yeasts that are good for your health. We are encouraged to get more probiotics into our diet because over 70% of our immune system is in our gut and we need to constantly make sure that we keep the balance of the good and bad bacteria, especially if we do not lead a healthy lifestyle, and as we get older. How important are probiotics? Studies and research repeatedly show that if you are one of several […]
