best of: cold + sinus

Poor Cal has had the worst sinus issues this week and I’ve been pulling out all the stops. He’s gotten better with each day so I didn’t worry about getting an antibiotic but here’s what I used to help things move along! Children’s ACF (Acute Cold + Flu) by Buried Treasure.

My stress levels have been absolutely next level the last handful of months. And just when I think it can’t get worse, it seems to compound!

So I wanted to recreate it today with Maty’s – which is an organic cough and cold line – that makes this amazing chest rub among other awesome things! Their Chest Rub caught … Read more

vermont recap

As promised here is a recap about my trip with Stonyfield to beautiful Vermont! I have been to New York City in the Fall but out in the country on the east coast is a whole different story. SO unreal. Stonyfield took us on a tour of two of the dairy farms they not only get supply from, but actively support and mentor and I loved it more than I can say! They’re also giving a way a month supply of their yogurt on my Instagram @smallfryblog so don’t miss that! Here is the crew we went with, along with … Read more
