Natural cold remedies

Flu season is right around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to reveal my natural cold remedies. Natural health and wellness are very important to me, from eating all organic to making my own personal care products (check out my toothpaste and anti-aging eye cream recipes). Since I avoid over the counter and prescription drugs whenever possible, I have honed natural cold remedies that work – and I’m sharing my secrets.

What dogs can teach us

Life lessons from your dog: Photo Friday

Dogs are great teachers and you can learn life lessons from your dog if you’re paying attention. Buster the boxer is my brand mascot (here is a gratuitous puppy picture…okay, there’s also this one and this one). We’ve spent years diligently training him, which is why he can be pictured on Instagram with food he doesn’t eat to promote my recipes (the pictures of him with my protein cookies are adorable). Buster is also my personal mascot and below I share life lessons you can learn from your dog! Continue reading “Life lessons from your dog: Photo Friday”

What to do in the fall

Photo Friday: fall bucket list

Summer is coming to a close and I’m already starting to think about my fall bucket list. As always, summer at the cottage passed by in a blink. The older I get, the faster time seems to fly and that’s why it’s so important to be present, be grateful and make the most of it.

The best craft books

Photo Friday: books that have made me a better writer

Today I’m sharing books that have made me a better writer as I work towards publishing my first novel, Twist of Fate. The best authors are readers themselves and not only consume the books in their genre, but also books that improve their own narratives. I’ve been writing in the corporate world for nearly a decade (still not sure how that happened – time flies!) and even though I consider myself an experienced writer, I’m constantly learning and humbled by those who are ahead of me on their journeys.
