Easter Crafts And My Go-To Chocolate Favorites
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Ever since I was a child I have always looked forward to holidays of all kinds, especially the ones that involve candy. Easter has always been a much-loved day in our home, I remember my mother buying my sisters and I matching dresses and going to Easter Egg hunts at church as a child. And waking up to our Easter baskets was always very much anticipated as we were always eager to see what the Easter Bunny had left for us!

All my life, Hershey’s chocolate has been a huge part of all of the major holidays for my family. It’s no different now that I’m a parent myself, Hershey’s is the most prevalent candy I utilize to celebrate every holiday that we love. My kids’ favorite has always been Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….

The Care Bears are back! Or are they? They never really did go away, so maybe I should say that they’re extending their run, I guess. These fun and colorful little bears have been around for as much of my life as I can remember. That’s no small feat in a consumer’s world where everyone is always moving on to the next newest and brightest thing.

The Care Bear universe has branched out to include some new characters, their cousins, who are fun and bring new adventures for old and new fans alike to appreciate.

Skin Care For Every Lifestyle

Skin Care For Every Lifestyle - True Results Retinol Skin Care and ELEWA Holistic Skin Care

Beauty Brite DisclosureSkin care is a topic that I find myself becoming more interested in all the time, now that I’m in my forties. I still enjoy relatively clear, smooth skin. But, I do have some slight sun damage on my cheeks from past sunburns and have noticed the skin (mostly around my eyes) getting a little less elastic.

I’m not really picky about whether I try skin care lines that are all natural or whether they are developed with some chemical ingredients. I know some women do have definite preferences when it comes to the ingredients in their skin care, though. Here, for your consideration, I am offering up my experiences with two skin care lines I have recently given a test drive, True Results Retinol Active and ELEWA Natural.

Love Is In The Air

Love Is In The Air - Valentines Day 2017

All holidays are a fun time at our house. We don’t get all crazy and plan huge splashy, fancy parties. But, I do always do a little something for my kids for holidays from Valentine’s Day and Easter to Halloween and Christmas.

I’ve always made little Valentine’s Day themed treat bags, buckets or baskets for each of my three children. They are all probably a little too old for this now being that they are 13, 17 and 23. But, I still enjoy making them and they love receiving them, so I don’t plan on stopping this tradition anytime in the near future!… [read more]

Heavenly Holidays Start With Chocolate

Heavenly Holidays Start With Chocolate - Hershey's Chocolate Kisses

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Do you have any holiday traditions in your house? No matter what holiday it is, from Thanksgiving and Christmas to Valentine’s Day and Easter, Hershey’s Kisses are a staple ingredient of holiday prep for me. I always have a candy dish full of Hershey’s Kisses themed for the relevant holiday and I usually use them to make cookies or desserts, too!

Christmas is a huge holiday, even though the kids are getting older and don’t get sucked up in the magic of making holiday cookies or decorating very much anymore. Still, every year I like to find cute little treats to make for my kids (and my nieces and nephews) that will bring a smile of delight to their faces…. [read more]
