Four Things I Didn’t Expect to Love About Beautycounter

When I signed up as a consultant with Beautycounter in June of 2018, two days before leaving for a two-week trip to England for fecal microbiota transplant, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I’d been following the brand for probably about two years and had considered signing up twice before. When I did finally… Continue reading Four Things I Didn’t Expect to Love About Beautycounter

9 Travel Essentials for the Unseasoned Traveler

I used to think I was a somewhat seasoned traveler. Maybe not curry or cayenne, but a nice blend of sea salt, garlic, and some green herbs. When I decided to go to England for fecal microbiota transplant, I realized just how far removed I’d become from the jetset.

FMT Update #2: the second week and the aftermath

“How was your trip?” I didn’t think that would be a complicated question to answer, but I never know what to say. Good? Busy? Exhausting? Fun? Awkward? Stressful? Relaxing? Crappy? 💩 Any of those would be truthful. It’s taken me five days since arriving home to write an update because jet lag and FMT lag… Continue reading FMT Update #2: the second week and the aftermath

FMT Update: One week down, one to go!

  I had grand visions of daily updating the blog and keeping careful records of my symptoms and progress during fecal microbiota transplant. Sounds like a great idea, eh? Then, jet lag hit. I may have been a bit stressed from travel. (Possibly. Just a theory. Ok, yes, I was a bit of an anxious… Continue reading FMT Update: One week down, one to go!
