Clinical trials find that the inhalation of peppermint essential oil by women in labor reduces both pain and anxiety of the birthing process.

Spending another day at the Public Library… which I have to admit is on my top 10 favorite places in Memphis. I just wish that I was here to search for and find new books to read instead of to write research papers :( #fail
Ok here’s the plan… fall & winter in Cali, spring & summer in NYC! How’s that sound?
Checked out Memphis’ newest grocery store today. It’s really cute and hip no doubt with it being in the center of Midtown. They offer a large variety of cheeses, produce, nuts & coffee. They also have a few sample stations set up, a wine aisle, and a nice bakery. The store is pretty pricey so I wouldn’t recommend shopping here with a full on grocery list, maybe just to pick up a couple organic items.

Hi readers! Most of you know that I am in school working on my Masters in Nursing, my concentration is Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. My studies involve a lot of research and I have already learned so much interesting information that the general public does not know. Women’s health is important to not only women, but to men as well. We all have female family and loved ones in our lives. I have decided to incorporate some of what I learn into my blog (references will be cited). So in the future I will share a “Women’s health fact or tip” that I hope will enlighten and maybe even benefit you. Look for them on Wednesdays! And inbox me if you have a specific topic you would like me to research for you and then share on my blog!
Where all the magic happens.
Hey, I own 4 of these books! God, I love books.
