Let's start off by saying I have a confession.... I am a dairy-oholic. Love almost every dairy item, especially ice cream! Here is the problem. I can officially say I am allergic to dairy :(. See I have pretty bad eczema and knew I was allergic to something. So the best way to test this is by elimination. Taking out individual things like milk, wheat, eggs, nuts, etc one at a time for over a week and up to 3. After about a week my eczema was getting better and I was a lot less itchy.Then I ...

Totally not the best picture but I was at school in the computer lab and used my dumb phone! I was way to excited not to share this! I am all about saving money which also happens to be a great way to be Eco friendly. When it comes to my hair I like things that are really simple.

photo credit I had plan to make pancakes, but forgot to tell my husband that I needed eggs which he always eats for breakfast. So when you have no eggs and you need them for a recipe what is there to do? Well you can substitute 1 egg with 1 Tbsp of ground flaxseed and 3 Tbsp of water.
