Top 5 Shaving Cream Alternatives

I was in the shower the other day and I needed to shave my legs. I looked around and there wasn’t any shaving cream in my shower. How could this happen!? I looked around to see what else I could use so I grabbed the conditioner and it worked, even better then my shaving cream! This got me to thinking about other shaving cream alternatives.

Best Organic Fertilizers for your Garden

This is my third year of growing a backyard garden and I have had a lot of success ( and some failures) over that time. I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. I’ve gotten pretty good at knowing what will grow in my specific climate and what type of care my plants need. Since I try to grow all organic produce, I’ve done a lot of research on finding the best organic fertilizers for your garden. There are four main types that I think work the best.

With vacations coming up and the pools starting to open, I thought it would be a good time to talk about sunscreen. As you know, I’m a natural Ginger which means I am super pale! I know my sunscreen. I have to use a ton of it during the spring and summer months. Now that I have a daughter, I have been doing some research on the best drugstore sunblock for babies and kids.

Best Drugstore Sunblock for Babies and Kids

Doing some research online, with Consumer Reports, by asking my doctor, and just my personal opinion,  I have come up with a list of some of the best sunblock you can get for your kids from the drugstores.

Southern Style Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese

Here in the South, we love our Mac & Cheese. You really can’t go to a Pot Luck or family get together and not have at least one type of mac & cheese there. It is a true Southern staple. We have a family recipe that I love but I came across a Southern style slow cooker mac & cheese recipe that I tried and fell in love with. I saw this on Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show and it it so much simpler to make.

Things will happen and you just have to laugh to get through the day.
