how-to-prevent-a-hangover

Writing this post may seem rather odd to those that take part in Dry July. I figure however, for the most of us shit- house-uncharitable-citizens who wish not to prove they can stay dry for an entire month, knowing how to prevent a hangover or limit it to say the least is one of those essential life skills. I had written quite a few dot points to this post prior to asking the MMM Facebook gang their tricks.  So incorporated into…

29 May, 2014
Untitled design-4

There is a very fine line between being assertive and becoming aggressive. It is one that some dance along beautifully and others fail miserably. By going in gently to a difficult situation, you risk being earmarked as passive and then promptly walked all over. By going in hard and fast, you’re sure to offend and possibly be viewed as being aggressive. This is where skill, tactic and a little practice plays a part. I once worked with a lovely lady that could…

There is a great way to have your microwave sparkling again though.  All you need is a bowl of water and a sliced lemon. Too easy you say?…

Coconut Coffee Scrub

I have been using this scrub on my face and body for a week now and cannot believe I was able to make something so fabulous from my kitchen with little effort.
