Being socially and environmentally responsible has always been a major concern of mine since I was in high school. Recently, I started a campaign online called #oneloveoneplanet that encouraged people to eliminate the use of single use plastic at home. The reason I started it was that I noticed my consumption of water bottles a week. I knew I had to change my own lifestyle to get others to do the same. I started using a refillable water bottle but then I needed to figure out how to refill it at home. I am happy to say I found a Primo┬« Water in-home water dispenser, and this is a sponsored post on behalf of Primo. Primowater is very easy to use. You can order your preferred water dispenser from home, some big-box retailer stores also carry them. They have so many different styles to choose from. There are some that have a single-serve coffee machine built in, there are countertop ones, they have one that has a connected…

If you live in Southern California and want a mini vacation you need to head down to Temecula. I spent one night there recently and it was too short of a time. I will go back to spend more time in Temecula, it’s a great getaway that is only a short drive away. I did see a lot while I was there. Old Town Temecula has been around since the 1880’s and still has areas with wooden sidewalks. Which keeps the charm of the area. Temecula is known for it’s wine country but if wine isn’t your thing there are so many other things to do there. You can enjoy fabulous resturaurants, go to the spa, golf, walk and shop around old town and enjoy a brewery. I started my day at Extraordinary Artisan Table. We had coffee and donuts created by Chef Leah. The donuts I tried were vegan,…
