Endometriosis a condition that only affects women and can change their lives forever. Why am I discussing this you ask?

My Letter to Lupus

Dear Lupus, 
You came into my life with asking, without an invitation. You came in and made it known by all that you were GOING TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION. Who asked you to come? Who asked you to come into my body and take my life away?? I sure as hell didn’t. 
Looking back you made yourself known and reared your ugly head the first time when I was in highschool. Although no one called you that. TheyRead More

For me personally it was to oily. I run aRead More

A few weeks ago I reviewed awesome products from Louise from LouisesSewingBasket on Etsy. She was kind enough to send me a port pillow and a recovery pillow. I started using them both last week in the car and I love them. The port pillow is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a small pillow that you Velcro around the seatbelt to protect your port. It also works nicely to keep the seatbelt from rubbing your neck!  It’s so handyRead More
