About Taylor

I'm a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I'm constantly asking "Why?" My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.

Today is Easter! Goodness, it seems like not that long ago we were celebrating the new year! Where has the time gone? While you may have plans for Easter, we just wanted to wish you a fabulous day! We hope it is full of fun, sunshine and laughter.  

It’s Easter!

Teacup 2
Today I have reason to pause and think a little bit. One of my coworkers has learned that her mother has fallen ill. I found this news to be incredibly sad and I would like to ask that you call, write or otherwise message, those who are important to you. After all, there is truth [...]

Finished Cuticle Oil It may still be February and I may be dreaming of sunshine, grass and gardening but outside my window are still piles of snow. You know, it is funny.
