Natural Deodorant- Why won’t it work for me?

It is amazing to me after 15 years in the skin and personal care industry how the view of products we put on our skin changes. I remember using so much hair spray in the 80’s I am sure I have enough lining on my lungs that could coat your drive way!   Fast forward…

Expect Less….

Each birthday since I was 20 Ron has worked hard to make me happy. He plans, gets all the details worked out, asks me what I want, and bribes the kids to behave for one day. One eventful birthday was my 40th. I wanted to go to Dogwood Canyon in southern Missouri and bike ride…
