Helping Hand logo

It's no secret that I'm a clean freak. I hate sticky fingers and dirty, and I especially hate having to put my things down in dirty areas. I also like to have my phone near me because I'm multitasking most of the time. While this is fine when I'm sat at my desk, it's not so great if I'm in the … [continue]

Product Review: Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent

Soap Nuts Liquid

If you’ve been around for more than a minute you’ll know I’m a little bit crunchy. I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 14 years, I would rather clean the house with baking soda and vinegar than with chemicals, and everything other than bed sheets and towels gets washed on a cold wash. I’ve touched on […]

Life and Times

It’s been a while since I did a Life and Times update, so I decided to shake things up a little bit. I want to get better at writing more personal blogs so I’m giving myself a few prompts to break me in gently. Haha. Eating: Key Lime Pie and Coconut Creme macarons from Sucré. […]

Pick and Mix

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser - MidwestFinds

The weather has been so changeable in New Orleans in the last few weeks. It seems like we had thunderstorms here for a two weeks straight, and now it’s back to being HOT. The dogs are down to very short walks in the shade and sitting the balcony under a big umbrella. If I was a […]
