Ivette Ivens Photo Shoot – Try to Stop Me

I am a warrior. I fight for you. I fight for moms, dads and babies. I fight for those who are living slightly against the grain to those who rage against the machine.

A Review of Primal Pit Paste


Deodorant is controversial stuff. Well, maybe not the deodorant itself, it might just be the spread of new information that gets touchy. I posted on Facebook about how some of the ingredients in big brand name deodorants were being linked to breast cancer.

A Review of Motherlove Green Salve

By Abby Theuring, MSW
