Spring time will be here before we know it and one of my favorite things to do is go on road trips and visit wineries that are along the way. It’s a great way to check out new wines and I’m not one to turn down a chance to support small businesses either. You know just doing my part to help the economy…LOL. Here’s a trip a took a few years back that I’m hoping to visit again this year.
I had the pleasure of visiting the Purple Toad Winery in Paducah, Kentucky. Any time we take a road trip, one of the first things I do is to check and see which wineries we will pass on the way there or back home. Several came up, but the Name “Purple Toad” just sounded like it would be a cool place to visit and the reviews on Yelp were pretty good.
Purple Toad Winery is located on the edge of Paducah, Kentucky. The name “Purple Toad Winery” originated from the color of your toes when grapes were pressed the old-fashioned way. They combine modern wine making techniques with old world knowledge to produce award-winning wines. The winery is quaint and just off the beaten path. Once we arrived we were greeted by Shadow, a black labrador, who quickly made his way onto the sun porch since it was so darn hot and humid! Inside the shop there were several gifts and wine related items available for purchase. Ian, our server, was so nice and handed me a listing of all of their wines. Since I would be driving home I decided I’d limit my tastings (which are free) to just four. 😉 [Read more…]

I’ve been natural this go around for over 7 years! And during this time I’ve probably tried just about every product none to man. Thankfully I’ve finally mastered what works good for me! Can I get a curly girl AMEN! Even my 16yo has mastered her holy grail list of products to maintain her curls. Which leads us to the youngest, crazy curly girl in our household.
Morgan has the thickest and curliest hair out of the three of us. What makes it even crazier is that due to us all having different textures and lengths, none of the same products work the same on us. Morgan’s biggest issues are maintaining moisture and frizz control. Now that she’s getting older sometimes she wants to wear her hair out and all I’m envisioning is my baby walking around looking like she got into a fight with humidity and it won!
When Formulate contacted me about doing on a review on their customized shampoo and conditioner I was a bit skeptical. First I wanted to make sure that it could be used on all hair textures because I’m lucky enough to have a very diverse group of readers and 2nd I was concerned about the price. But we’ll get to that part at the end! [Read more…]
