Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

Image
NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

A mastectomy is one of the most life changing surgical procedures that a woman can go through. It is the surgical removal of a woman's breast. Angelina Jolie recently made headlines with her decision to undergo a double mastectomy because of a faulty gene that exists in her genetic makeup. This gene is scientifically known as the BRCA1 gene. Mutations of this gene can lead to breast and ovarian cancer.

I discovered Nourish Organic last year while on the never ending hunt to find THE best natural deodorant.  The very first thing that I noticed about Nourish Organic was the official USDA organic symbol that was right smack on the front of every single product in their lines.  This is the only USDA organic skincare company that I know of at present.  Of course there are other beauty and skincare companies that may have one or two USDA certified organic products in their lines and collections.  However, every single product of Nourish Organic is USDA certified organic and that is absolutely wonderful and very essential.  There are too many skin and beauty companies claiming to have organic products without an official USDA symbol on the product.  I wholeheartedly support and recommend this company to all conscious consumers! Let's start by talking about the packaging of the Nourish Organic deodorants.  They are beautifully and colorfully designed on a white container and black cover.
