Winter comes every year and it always likes to sneak up on most of us.

As you do in the summer you need to take care od yourself during the winter too. It’s important to your body and your overall health. Instead of being a grump because the sun has decided to share with the moon you can do something about it! There are a few simple ways you can enjoy […]

Creamy White Chocolate Pistachio Cranberry Fudge

I have a confession to make, i have never ever in my life made fudge. Now, i am a little embarrassed! Who knew it was so easy! Since making the first batch a week before Christmas, my family and friends have become full blown addicts! I have had to make 4 more batches of this fudge since. This fudge is the perfect balance of creamy, sweet, crunchy from the pistachios and tart from the cranberries. Your tastebuds will sing in harmony after you pop a piece in your mouth. The recipe makes 64 pieces and trust me, some of you […]

New Year // New Me

I am hoping to have a very productive 365 days in 2017. I am nervous but exciting coming into the new year! I am officially a full time freelance writer! I am so excited to be out of the corporate world and forging my own path to my future. Working 55+ hours a week wasn’t worth it to me, i had no time for anything and i was always tired. The job i left was stressful and the long days gave way to frequent migraines, chest tightness, and panic attacks. So mostly for my health i decided to take the […]

Don’t Give Up – Ever

I resigned and December 31st will be my last day at my cushy full-time job to go full on freelance. A few friends have asked how i am feeling and to put it in a word – terrified! I wanted to be a freelance writer so bad i could taste it (tastes like milk chocolate and caramel). I was constantly scouring the inner webs to find any useful information i can find for my resources. Then it hit me – 2017 will be different. I love the people i work with and the company i work for but something is […]

Gina’s Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Hey, friends of Leslie! I’m Gina from the blog Desperately Seeking Gina where I write about everyday life, what I had for dinner the night before, crafting, and my cat. My fiancé and I live in a little cove on a beautiful lake in Arkansas. We love it here. Don’t tell anyone-but Arkansas is SO much more than people give it credit for. It’s just turned cool here and the leaves are changing and falling fast as we approach Thanksgiving. I thought I’d share with you my favorite fall recipe, one that I just had the chance to make this […]

Things I’m Loving

It’s Wednesday, how are you doing today? I woke up this morning and it was clear, cool, and crisp outside. I was thankful for opening my eyes this morning so i made my way through the door with my coffee cup. I said a mantra this morning that i think will be added to one of my favorites “i opened two gifts this morning, that was my eyes”. With all of the hate spewing over the last weeks and months i’ve decided to say a little mantra every morning when i wake up. This simple little task can set yourself […]

A Serious Life Revamp

I have been in a downward spiral here in the last few months. My anxiety has revved up and my depression has reared it’s ugly head (is it just me, or do you think of a stone gargoyle when you say that?) again. You’d think with all of the sunshine during the summer i would be uberly happy, right. Yeah so not the case. I think i am in need of a serious life revamp. I’ve decided since it makes me feel pretty that I’d start getting manicures & pedicures regularly. I got them done last weekend and i love […]
