The Village Herb Cellar

The Village Herb Cellar has a new location at 4811 North Brady Street, in Davenport, Iowa. I recently had the opportunity to meet with owners, Mary Evelyn Rollings and Mike Strong, to learn all about the business. The storefront itself has a lot to offer those visiting the new space–herbs, spices, oils, herbal supplements, candles, plant-based home needs, jewelry, teas, and homeopathic medicines–the place has it all. If you have any questions or curiosities, the staff considers themselves a resource and are more than willing to help guide you. Continue reading The Village Herb Cellar

Escape Rooms in the Quad Cities

Escape Rooms are becoming quite popular around the nation and the Quad Cities has followed suit now with five different locations. An escape room is an interactive, mystery solving, group activity filled with puzzles and clues following an adventurous story line.

Cocoa Beano Race: Running for Chocolate and giving back to children

I’m a woman who thrives for days on chocolate, a little bit of coffee, de-stressing, and running. It is the perfect balance to creating a healthy lifestyle balanced with some moderation. Personally, I know a lot of people feel the same. How would we get along in our crazy lifestyles without taking a break to embrace our active java and chocolate junkie lifestyles?
