Cough Tea

It’s that time of year. 

The time that, to me, is worse than spring. The time that brings the fall cough! 

You know the one. The one that never really goes away and you’ve had so long you’re not sure when it first appeared. It’s the same one that you don’t want to go to the doctor for because you’re positive it’s just something that has blown about with the change of seasons. 

I like to call it the “allergy faker.” 

Like Carly with her constant sinus fight, I have the constant cough fight. And although I always win, the shorter I have to deal with it the better.  

I also have to think about the fact that I have a child and he and his friends are in and out constantly, and I’d really prefer they not share anything with me. Lord knows no parent wants to start that viscous circle of sick. 

So, that’s where my favorite cough-away recipe comes in. It’s delicious, aids sleep and it’s for adults only! 

Wellness Tea and Whiskey, two new best friends.  





This is genius, if I do say so myself.  The benefits of this cup of awesome seem to be endless.  

You're getting aid with immunity boosting properties and stress reduction from the tea, honey, Essential Oils..and even the bourbon - solely based on what studies you read and grandma's old wives tales.  

The Essential Oils used in this, as always, are pure food grade quality and are part of the Young Living Vitality Line.  Both lemon and peppermint have throat soothing and calming, natural benefits to help soothe that . 

This specific tea will most likely naturally boost your energy, making this a definite day time tea.  If you want a night time tea I would recommend going with a Spiced Apple Cider Tea like this.  

Well, I hope you have a new favorite cough relief drink. I for one and going to make some now.  Sleep will be peaceful.  

Be sure to come back as we have 3 more days of tea in store for you.

I'll be back soon!

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.


Dr. Jason Fung, who's books on Intermittent Fasting can be found on the Resources page, says “Don’t try to fit Life i…

I Tried Those "Easy" Nail Polish Strips And Here's What Happened

I am a low maintenance person.

I love all the hair and makeup products. I wish I could be one of those women who always looks airbrushed and flawless with that perfect winged eye liner and just the right shade of lipstick, but that's just not me and I've learned to accept that. 

I typically don't have the patience for a full, daily beauty routine as I'm trying to rush out the door, especially when it comes to my poor nails.

Whenever a special event or holiday rolls around, I have the best intentions to get a manicure or at least take the time to polish and sculpt my nails, but it usually doesn't happen.

I get busy trying to get my hair to cooperate, or not get liquid liner EVERYWHERE, or finish packing to leave, or cleaning if guests are coming, so the nails get put on the back burner.

If by some MIRACLE of time management, through no fault of my own, I actually get them painted, without fail, I'll remember something else that needs doing and, no matter how careful …

I Was Hungover For Three Days: The Search For The Perfect Hangover Cure

The Hangover.

The most awful headache, dry mouth, can't get off the couch feeling next to the flu.  Sometimes worse.  

Well, I took three for the team.  For three nights, thanks to some previously unforeseen turn of events, I drank until I knew I would would be worthless the next day, and let me tell you, it was not easier as the days went on.  By the final night, my body and liver were ready for permanent retirement.

But you can't find a good hangover cure without the hangover part and this was my mission.

Here is the run down. 

Friday Night:

Home, back porch date night with the husband.  Portable heater, warm blankets, wine and a case of budlight.  (Don't shame me, it's all him on the beer choice.)
Start time 7pm.  
End time 12:30am.  
3/4 Bottle of Wine
4 Beers

Saturday Morning:

Talking, by anyone, was prohibited.  I didn't even have to request it, if someone even tried my facial expressions said it all. 

I know what you're thinking, why didn't I already have coffee …
