Comfy Cozy

It definitely feels like fall here in Minnesota lately.

The air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and I’m breaking out the boots.

I’ve always loved this season, but since moving into this house I’ve appreciated it even more. We only share our street with two other houses, so the view from our windows is largely unchanged from the days when this area was just  an undeveloped forest.

When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and… [Continue Reading]

  • Bobbi Jo Fischer says that the best part of her job is seeing “afters.” And she must see a lot of good ones, because she is an independent rep for Nerium, creator of the amazing Night Cream (Nerium AD). Bobbi Jo offered Tammy and I the opportunity to try this incredible product for a month.… [Continue Reading]

  • I’m a sucker for anything that exfoliates, and lately I’ve been scrubbing my face every night with the Pure Complexion Facial Sponge from Ecotools. Made from 100% natural ingredients, it easily washes away dirt, oil, and makeup.
