Beach time, all the time.

I am dreaming of my most recent trip to the ocean. Sand between my toes. Salt in the air. Sunshine on my skin. Aaah! Unfortunately, as I am writing this, I could not be further away from the bliss. I am at the dealership to get my car checked out for some squeaking noise it started making a couple of days ago. First world problems. Boring!

But while I’m stuck here for an hour and a half with a bunch of other annoyed individuals, bad coffee and the local news blasting through the lobby, why not make light of the situation by…oh, I dunno…talking about beautiful things like hair products?

Happy New Year, mamas!

I hope you all had a glorious holiday season with your loved ones and a great start to 2016.

I am very sorry that it has been so quiet around The Healthy Haus lately. Unfortunately, my year ended a little more tumultuous than expected. Although my oldest started kindergarten in the fall, I have been reminded daily how much both of my children still need me and need of me which, at times, has pushed me to my very limits. In addition, taking care of some health concerns and a few other personal issues kept me exceptionally (pre)occupied over the last few weeks. During my very short intervals of free time, all I could get myself to do was nothing at all. 

That’s the superficial version of it.
