#SPOTLIGHT| L’Oreal & Everyday Minerals Skincare & Makeup Samples

Happy Monday everyone, we’re back at the beginning of the week. I’m honestly so shocked at how fast this year is going by.

I’d been holding onto a sample of the L’Oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Care Normal/Oily Skin… Read More

#WhatTheHealth| The Illusion Of Social Media

I have a lot of ideas for posts that I want to do. But this one, I’ve wanted to write for some time. Shannon @GoingWithHappy made a blog post, Social Media Detoxing, and it helped remind me of this topic.

#WhatTheHealth| Bathtub 2 vs Me 0- Severe Ankle Sprain

I have this great talent of injuring myself in the weirdest ways. People always ask me, “Erika how did you do that?!” But the stories I have for my injuries are never that interesting, sometimes it’s just downright dumb. When my knee finally gave out, I was getting out of bed, nothing crazy. I will have to tell that story after this one because that one is quite complicated. Today, I’ll be telling the story of how my bathtub beat … Read More
