  Our family loves nature. We are always outside, camping, hiking, so planting a garden fits into our lifestyle. Did you know that you can make plant any seed you find? I will show you how, and chances are you have everything you need right at home! 
     So, I wanted to try to grow a lemon tree. I will show you how and you can follow along to see if it actually works! It's a work in progress, so we will find out together! This is how we got the seed started. It is an incredibly simple process and it is a great way to get kiddos excited about gardening! 

 
 
 I am pretty lazy. I don't spend a ton of time on any beauty regimen and I despise getting dressed up. So, when I read about being able to go days and days without washing my hair, I was all for trying it. Don't judge me. I have three kids, work two jobs, and it takes hours for my hair to air dry. Looking like a model is the last thing on my list. So, I was reading about this thing called going "no poo". Yep, ditching your shampoo, completely. There are a ton of benefits and in the end, your hair looks AMAZING! I promise! 
     I actually started looking into the whole no shampoo thing because I have hair extensions and they kept slipping out. I couldn't figure out why until I did some research and I read how the silicone in shampoo could have such an awful affect on your hair and especially your extensions. I was just throwing money away every time I had them put in, because they would just slip out a few weeks later due to the silicone build up from my shampoo. Then, I went no poo and it all changed. After I ditched the silicone based shampoo, my hair looked amazing, my extensions stayed put, and I get some extra time in between washes! Want to try it? Keep reading!

      Our family tries to live as chemically free as possible. It is super easy to do and even cheaper than you would realize. I make most things that we use, even our detergent. It takes only minutes to make and the best part is, it is completely free of harsh chemicals and it is organic. See how we make it here! This recipe will give you one gallon of detergent, or 64 loads. Use 1/4 cup of detergent per load.
