Being in my 30’s and not having any children yet, my fur babies are my world and they are our children for now. Some of my older friends that don’t have children consider their dogs their children and pamper them more than some people do their own kids. I’m going to let you know of some items we spoiled our dogs with this year and maybe some of them will be appealing to you and your four legged family members.
I happen to be the Mom who spends most of her time cooking tasty treats in the kitchen for my family and friends. I personally enjoy cooking and love all things food related! Cooking is such a passion; then we sit down at the table and share about our day. What was our “highs” and “lows” for the day? After dinner, we usually enjoy some great desserts. Even though I love cooking, I have a hard time “baking”. I never buy the right things and just have a hard time creating delicious masterpieces. Baking has NOT been my favorite part of being in the kitchen, I decided to try and fool proof baking box called, Rise Baking.
Are you a tea drinker or a coffee drinker or do you enjoy both? About over a year ago I decided to give up coffee due to the caffeine intake and being a hyper person already I wanted to switch to something else. Hot tea is what I decided on and over a year later I am in love with trying all the flavors out there and I drink it from the time I get up until the time I go to bed with only water in-between.
We all suffer with the skin and lip conditions that come with the cold and windy winter months. I recently looked down at my hands during an interview and noticed that they were flaky and dry looking and couldn’t help but feel like everyone else would notice it as well. If you have ever been in the same boat that I have, let me tell you about a few products that go above and beyond your needs.
Do you dread the cold winter months? I do and being in North Carolina I know they aren’t that harsh so I can imagine if I lived somewhere that stayed cold and got even colder than it does here. One of the main reasons I dread the winter months is because I know that my skin is going to become dry, cracked and itchy. I wanted to let you know about some products from Nourish that have helped me to have soft and supple skin while indulging in a relaxing spa atmosphere.
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]
For the last few months, I’ve been dealing with a small eczema breakout on my face. It was odd. Why, you ask? First, I’ve never had an eczema breakout. In the past, my son has had eczema breakouts. I was always told to use lotion and keep his skin hydrated. It would make an appearance when I used different makeup or skincare products. Then it would go away after using natural products for a bit.
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]
