After a long week of fully/overly indulging in divine meals and treats, you need a good cleanse! If you don’t like juicing cleanses because of the lack of satisfaction, you are not alone. Juicing is not the only way you can clean out your body, the nutrients in food are extremely powerful. Along with food, supplements are a great way to aid in your cleanse.Here are some great food and juice cleanses that Dr Oz has suggested....more
let me start off with saying i’m not the type of girl who’s really into hair and make-up products. i never really learned how to do that stuff, and am pretty super low maintenance when it comes to that. i rarely wear any make-up at all, and usually only do my hair for special occasions. i have been “that girl” at work who’s hair is always in a ponytail. but as i hit 30, i realized that i want to start being more “grown-up” and have started incorporating some things into my non-existent beauty regime....more
It's like a mini-product purge (sort of) like I did here, or maybe we could call it just being more efficient. Efficiently simplifying! See, we end up with a bunch of product samples -- mostly freebies that were included as special offers, or free with a coupon deal. And sample-sizes are perfect sizes for purse necessities or diaper bag needs, and finally, of course, small sizes for travel....more
Fellow moms, do you have specific product favorites that you use during the summer that you want others to know about because you have had a great experience with and think others could benefit from?
I was thinking the other day, what were my key faves that were important for my summer, and even other times in the year. I don't typically write posts about products on my blog site; however, when there are some that I can't stop talking about I feel it's important to share with my readers, I do.
Some of my favorites are not necessarily seasonal....more
A few years back, my oldest daughter came home from school one day and announced that one of her friends was going to stop eating meat and become a vegetarian. I asked why and she responded, “I don’t know—she said that she wanted to stop using/eating products that were made from animals.” I am always looking for ways to broaden my children’s horizons and increase their knowledge, and this seemed to be a great opportunity so I ran with it…...more
As I age I notice that I do not exercise the way I used to. For one thing, I no longer care as much about the latest fitness trend. I still enjoy the social sports like golf and enjoy swimming, yoga and skiing when I can. The reality is that none of these are consistent. I have never been a runner and quite frankly it hurts my feet, knees and back. So, my regular exercise regimen simplyconsists of walking almost everyday. I do anywhere from two to five miles. Here is a short video on products I love that help me look and feel great as I exercise: ...more
Every day or when I'm up to it, I bust out my make-up bag and doll myself up! There are some products in that bag that I've had for years, they are my favorites and products that have been discontinued. I've never thought twice about using these products until a couple days ago! I never once considered that just like the eggs, milk, cheese, and produce in my fridge that even my make-up has an expiration date!
Okay, I am 40 something with 3 children, 1 who doesn't sleep well, stress, life... I am tired of looking older than I am. All my friends look youthful and rested and I just feel like dirt most of the time. I have been longing to try some of the more expensive products on the market today because none of the inexpensive ones seem to really do anything but at $100 for a 1 oz jar of cream... I just couldn't do it.. UNTIL NOW. ...more
