Fall into your skin…

Hi, folks!  Summer is here and it's proving to be a busy time!  I started a post on change a few weeks ago....and, there were so many things changing, I couldn't get it finished. I'm not sure if y'all are feeling the same way, but here is something that I can't seem...

Be Strong, Stay Soft

Races are sometimes about being fast, yet I’m learning that to be strong, it also takes slowing down. Read more and gather some strength for yourself.

Going Home

Going home for a visit recently reminded me of why there’s no place like home. It’s so good for us in so many ways. What do you love about going home?

Developing New Habits

In my quest for developing new habits, I’m learning a lot about being uncomfortable. Are we talking itchy skin here? Not quite! Join me to learn more.

Shea Butter Skin Care

We’re going deep into our natural ingredients with Shea Butter skin care. We think you’ll be surprised at its origins and why its so great for our skin!

Saying Yes

What is the power behind saying yes? Would you be surprised that it has a lot to do with time? Take a moment and say yes to learning more about your yes!



We believe your skin deserves pure, naked goodness. A few of years ago, the cold and dry Colorado winter got to my hands. Even after using vats of traditional lotion, I was cracked up! And not in a good way! I had those deep, painful cracks on the tip of your finger – the ones that go deep and make you think that the only words you know are curse words.  Damn straight, I needed a better solution. I started researching. First thing I learned? Most lotion is made with ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce and chemicals that didn’t even make sense.  Nope, that just wouldn’t do. “Organic” lotions weren’t a lot better, so I decided to make my own. When I found the first recipe for solid lotion, a lotion bar, I thought “now this is different.” A few tweaks and experiments later, I can honestly attest: it sure is! Three organic ingredients – coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax – pure, naked goodness! No additives, no chemicals, and all words that are easily pronounced. Even better? It works! Years later, my skin doesn’t crack and I’m sporting my best skin yet! These simple products are made with one thing in mind – YOU! Your skin deserves pure, naked goodness!  Roll it up, rub it on, and enjoy!
