Vegan Favorites

Don’t get excited, SweatyGirl is not coming back But, someone on a forum asked me recently what my favorite meat replacements are, because they were struggling with gout (ouch!) and wanted to try and wean off of real meat to help. I took the time to write out all my favorites, and I realized it… Read more »

No Poo

I want to talk about my trials in No Poo! First, for those who haven’t heard of this – No Poo simply means not using commercial shampoo and conditioner on your hair. Why? Typical commercial shampoos strip your hair of so much of the natural oils that your scalp will overproduce natural oils (sebum) to… Read more »

Restaurant, Rambling, Running.

Good morning fine people! Somehow it got to be Monday again. Don’t you ever wonder how that happens? Evil black magic is my guess. I’m feeling good after finally sleeping this weekend.  Though, I am now desperately overdue for an eye exam, and it’s causing me some discomfort. You see,  I’m legally blind (which is… Read more »

My after Christmas, Christmas.

Now that Christmas is officially over, I thought it was finally acceptable to buy myself something! A few somethings, actually.(I’m not saying you forgot, Santa, I’m just saying… I’ve been a really good girl!) First of all, I really wanted/needed a camera case for my new camera. It is remarkably beefier than any camera I’ve… Read more »
