Hey Beauties, I’ve missed you! I’m back from a brief hiatus in which a family member passed away and my husband gained a new hip. Skipping a pic on this one – it’s not pretty – but it is done, and there is a beauty to that. Along the way, I discovered potent alchemy from some […]

Lusciousness! Loving these alchemical contributions from gifted bloggers while gathering my favorite posts from the web.

Finding Creative Solutions – How To Turn A Disability Into An Asset (Part One)
