Organic Skincare & Makeup Products

Bronzer

I just finished my third Youtube video on organic skincare and makeup products. Right now, these are my favorites based on three standards.     1) The ingredients need to be natural.

Weekday Dinner Menu at The House on High Street

Hey, all. It’s been a while. Technically, I am still on hiatus. Praying that the good Lord will shower me with inspiration and clarity in how to continue this venture of social-media-sharing. So, consider this just a “Hi there. Can’t stay. But, wanted to say hello.” kind-of-a-thing. ; ) I wanted to share something I started at the beginning of Honey-bear’s school …
