What’s Cookin?

I have not faded away, I am still here, remember me? Oh my gosh you guys. It’s been a strange couple of months. Strange, wonderful, and eye opening. Turns out, starting a new business, when you’re already working full time, takes up a lot of your energy. Who knew? It’s been really wonderful though, and…

So… Frankincense.

Last week I was in Pennsylvania to be on Good Day Fox Philly with Allie, which was surreal, and more on that another day. In between filming segments, I was going on and on about Frankincense essential oil, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately, and yes, I was getting some eye rolls because…

Thursday Randoms

Success is more than what we've been taught.

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.  I’ve been working on my Etsy store for 2 and a half weeks, and yesterday I finished, and launched it!  I felt so amazing after I launched it, and then it got better, I made 11 sales. I’m telling you, the feeling that comes over you…

LTB – Never Stop Trying

Clearly, I understand the importance of shoulder pads in business at a young age.

For today’s episode of Let’s Talk Business, I’d like to tell you a story about epic fails! When I was five, I was gifted with a beautiful, plastic self-inking stamp.  The image was a strawberry with a happy face, and the ink was strawberry scented.  I was pleased.  I realized that I really enjoyed the…

Story Time!

Sometimes blogging is kind of hard. There’s a TON of competition, people have short attention spans, and if you don’t include some beautiful photos (these days, photos with pretty WORDS on top of them) you can’t Pin It on Pinterest, thereby excluding you from the “third most popular social network”.  Horrors! January is particularly hard,…

Losing It Over Here (and Getting It Back)

Howling like a baby wolf is cute and creative. Just not at 7AM, mkay?

I’ve been a little quiet here for the past few weeks.  January is tricky.  The holidays are so busy with deadlines for work, cooking, traveling, presents.  Then, come January, we’re worn out and lazy.  We usually get sick. Going back to work and school presents more challenges than we’re prepared for. This month was typical,…

Confession… and a DIY

Homemade Anti-Perspirant Deodorant - All Natural | Yinmom, Yangmom

It’s yet another confession-time here at YMYM! I’m stinky.  Sometimes very stinky.  And, since I work from home, I don’t need to shower first-thing.  Some days I’m sitting here working, stinking this whole house out, and I comfort myself by pretending that I’m having a contest to see how stinky I can get.  Only, it’s…

A Peaceful New Year

Wishing You Peace in 2013

It’s almost 2013, and for the last couple of weeks I’ve been reflecting on the past year, and thinking about some of my hopes and goals for the next year. Have you ever gone through a phase where it feels like you’re being faced with one obstacle after another?  I went through a phase like…

The Shame Game

There is a very nice mom at our bus stop.  One morning, out of the blue, she looked very, deeply, deeeeeeply sad.  I wondered if something really terrible happened.  I honestly have never seen anyone quite so affected.  It was alarming, awkward, and uncomfortable (I’m being honest). After that I didn’t see her around much,…
