Everyone in my house loves animated movies, especially when they combine human and animal characters. The Wild Life was a lot of fun to watch. I liked the parrot and cat characters, but absolutely adored the goat, Scrubby. He tries to eat just about anything because he can’t see worth a darn and can’t tell what’s food and what’s not. He was totally hilarious!… [read more]
Make some popcorn, get your favorite snuggly blanket and park your derriere on the couch for some down time with your kids this holiday season while they’re on winter break from school. These Lionsgate Entertainment kids’ DVDs will make great stocking stuffers, and an added bonus is that they won’t melt in your kids’ hands or get ground into the carpet like the candies and treats Santa typically puts in children’s stockings. It’s a win-win!
I have a fondness for apples. They’re one of my favorite snack foods. I use them in jams and jellies and as fun, unexpected ingredients in recipes. And candles? Don’t even get me started on that subject. I’m a bona fide candle freak! I love tropical, forest and fruit scents alike — and apple scented candles are right up there near the top of my wish list all the time.
I have apple-scented lotions that I love to use to help with my dry skin, apple-scented body washes, and have purchased shampoo and conditioners that feature this sweet fruit scent, as well. But, these beauty staples aren’t the only ones that make excellent use of apple extracts. Read on to learn about a few new apple-scented beauty finds I’ve discovered!… [read more]

Keeping your skin hydrated, glowing and looking healthy can be a challenge as the weather changes bringing cooler, drier air as we move through fall and into winter. Less daylight can also cause some to feel blue and find less joy in things they used to find pleasant. I love skin care that pulls double-duty, like those in the Tree Hut Bath and Body Care product lines.
Tree Hut body scrubs and body butters contain skin-conditioning certified organic shea butter that works overtime to provide excellent moisturization for dry, flaky skin. I love this stuff because it gives immediate relief to soften and smooth my skin, making it stronger and more resistant to the itchiness that dry skin can cause. It also helps me to avoid those annoying small skin cracks I sometimes get that can be so painful for me during the winter time.
There are a million reasons and occasions for which we’d all like to look our best and there are almost as many different products on the market that make claims of being the best and doing the most to make us beautiful.
Holiday season is right around the corner — we’re into October already! Where did the whole year go? There are only about seven weeks until Thanksgiving and eleven weeks until Christmas. That’s just enough time to make some simple changes in your personal care routine to help you look your best for all of the family get-togethers, kids’ school parties and office functions that are sure to start filling up your calendar very soon.
Two of the features that people notice first when greeting each other are a person’s hair and smile. These are always the two things I worry about when faced with get-togethers of any kind. I found two products that are helping me prep myself to look great!… [read more]
