Life has a way of throwing a curve ball just when you think everything is going perfectly. Since I finished my chemo in January my immune system has been going hay wired. I've had a cold for three weeks now and I have no idea how to get rid of this darn thing.  I'm taking Golden Seal & Echanachia which are natural herbs and drinking lots of warm teas with lemon and honey.  My doctor refuses to give me a flew shot or any antibiotics... he says my system has to become responsive again and fight off the flu naturally.  Okay I can live with that but how long is this supposed to take?

Lifestyle | January 2017 Blogger Income Report

Blogger Income Reports

This year I've made the decision to become transparent and post my monthly income and expenses. I'm not by any means a successful blogger, I don't make a lot of money from my blogs or my online business. I currently have two blogs, this one and wigweaves.com.  I consider WigWeaves my business blog because it's tied to my LLC and also my online store lacewigstraps.com.  Both blogs, however, I've decided to use for affiliate marketing which I've just started actively doing last year. I have never done affiliate marketing before because I've always thought it was too much work even though I know some people have become very successful at it.

Ombre Human Hair Extensions & Clip-ins
As a Wigmaker, I'm constantly asked where to buy hair. Well the market is now saturated with hair vendors and if you search for Hair on Google, you'll come up with thousands upon thousands of hair vendors. Hair bundles have become very popular now because you can now buy the hair in bundles which takes all the necessary work out of your decision. Clip-in hair bundles can easily be made into sew-in bundles, just remove the clips and separate the wefts, then you can sew them in.

Beauty | Top 10 Orange Blushes Every Girl Needs for Spring!

10 Orange Blushes Every Girl Needs for Spring
When it comes to blushes I'll definitely admit that I'm a hoarder. But when it comes to orange blushes, it's more of an obsession. When you find a color that compliments your skin tone, you tend to buy more of that color. I think I have about 24 total, but the 10 listed in this post are all permanent and still available online (links provided for convenience). I didn't think it was fair to include orange blushes that were LE or no longer available. I like to rotate my blushes giving them all some love and even though they may look new, I've actually worn all of them.

The moment you realize that your physical journey involves so much more than just hitting the gym, it becomes a part of your everyday existence.  I knew that fruits was going to be a huge part of my diet but I wasn't exactly aware of how I was going to fit them in on a daily basis.  I wanted to have a bowl of fruit everyday for the natural vitamins, minerals and nutrients that my body needed so I was searching for ways to incorporate them into my daily regimen.

Fitness | Vitality and Youth | Free Nutrition & Fitness Guide

Before I went back to my simple "Back to Basics" eating plan I had such a hard time losing the weight. I kept trying different recipes and different seasonings all to no avail. Then it hit me, I used to be very slim when I was just cooking just the basics... just simple plain foods that didn't require a long list of ingredients. I lost 10 lbs in about 5 months just by cooking the basics and I didn't diet at all. The left is me before the weightloss, the right is after the weightloss.
