Coffee Crawl – London

Like most Americans, I love a good latte. Not too sweet, not too bitter, a romance between cream and espresso, those are the qualities of a good latte for me. So when I travel finding a good latte is almost a challenge that I always accept. This visit to London I wanted to get away from the touristy things that I’ve done before and try something different… a coffee crawl… Read More »Coffee Crawl – London

Organic Aromas review

Firefly Review: Organic Aromas Oil Diffuser

I love essential oils. But after I learned how bad plastic essential oil diffusers were, I immediately threw mine away. I was shocked after testing three essential oils on a plastic spoon, seeing that the next morning the oils had melted and warped the spoons.  Which is why essential oils are always sold in glass bottles. Then, Organic Aromas introduced me to their plastic-free glass oil diffusers. Glass doesn’t break… Read More »Firefly Review: Organic Aromas Oil Diffuser

Wynter’s Review of TruDog treats

This week we are trying TruDog treats.  Hopefully, we will find some that she likes! Wynter is a very picky eater.

I think the menu was nice, plenty of vegetarian… Read More »Summer Summer – Thai Eatery in Emeryville, Ca
