Beauty Junk Roundup: Silk 18 Shampoo

This isn’t so much a “roundup” as it is more of a review of just one product: the Silk 18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. Once again, Maple Holistics reached out to me to see if I would be willing to do a review for this product (see past reviews here and here), and I agreed….

[review: di coffee bar]

Since my Examiner.com page wanted to play games and keep telling me I needed to either use Firefox or Chrome to publish (even though I tried to use both), I decided to move my coffeeshop reviews over here to avoid further headache. Today I visited DI Coffee Bar, a place which opened on Davis Island…
