Please continue to support breast cancer research

If there’s one charity you don’t have to ask me twice to support it’s breast cancer research. Not even sure how many friends and friends of friends I sponsored this year in Susan G. Komen races. Plus, if you’ve seen my act, you know I eat all the pink M&Ms I can get my hand on ;) Tee hee ;)

I respect people who care enough about their bodies and the earth to buy only green/organic products. But I haven’t yet jumped on that wagon. The organic eating might be more expensive but damn it if making my own skin and body care products wouldn’t save money. Equilibrium, people. Very appealing… Continue reading →
