Who loves to travel? I know I do. Whenever funds are available we love to take a trip. It may occur every year or every other year, but it’s something as a family we really look forward to. Whether we go camping or take a road trip down the East coast, how we prepare for our trips only improve with experience. That always comes with a bit of research and products that make it that much easier.

The Best New Products For Women’s Health

The Best New Products For Women's Health
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s a brand new year and a chance to feel better than ever before! Because well-being and fitness are important to me, I love discovering new products that support women’s health.

I wear lots of hats as a wife, mom, daughter, and working mom. Most days leave me feeling drained and exhausted. It’s important that I have products in my life that help me look and feel my very best. 

I’m excited to share with some of my recent finds! Whether you’re a college student, stay-at-home mom, beloved Nana or a corporate mama, there’s something for every woman at every age.

For most of my life, I’ve struggled with the exact opposite of gorgeous hair. Naturally, I have very fine hair without much volume. After my son was born, I actually ended up losing a lot of hair! After that, I knew I needed to find a supplement that could help improve my hair.

I was really excited to check out Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies. I love the super cute heart shape, and the summer strawberry flavor is tasty! Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and contain zero artificial flavors. 

Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are comprised of a special blend of vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair, starting from the scalp and encouraging hair growth. Made of a power-packed blend of biotin, folic acid, B-5,6,12, Vitamin A,C, and E. These were incredibly gentle on my stomach and I could even take them on an empty stomach!

Low carb diets are very popular right now. Whether it’s Keto, South Beach, Paleo – many people are switching to a low carb way of life and reaping the benefits. My husband and I follow the Keto diet which can sometimes leave us feeling fatigued, especially when our electrolytes are out of whack. Ultima Replenisher has become a daily essential for me!

I can’t stress enough how well this product works! After a workout or a hot day, this is the perfect “pick me up,” as it replenishes electrolytes lost. Ultima Replenisher is vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, caffeine free, peanut/soy free, and sweetened with organic stevia. Simply add the packet to your bottled water, shake, and enjoy. I highly recommend the Cherry Pomegranate flavor, so delicious!

Rosebud Woman is a family-owned business that puts great care into the products they create. Every feminine health item they make is plant-based and gentle for skin. I also love that when I purchase from Rosebud Woman, a portion of their proceeds are donated to vetted non-profits who are supporting women and their families. 

I highly recommend Honor Regenerating Balm! It’s a great balm for women of any age, very gentle and nourishing for the most intimate skin. Honor Regenerating Balm improves skin resilience and accelerates skin repair. This has helped me greatly since becoming a mom. Applying Honor Regenerating Balm before baby helps reduce the risk of tearing during delivery. For current moms, it will promote faster healing after giving birth. For menopausal women, this will help greatly with frequent dryness. I recommend using this nightly to revitalize intimate skin, or it can also be used 10 minutes before a sensual encounter. 

Many of us need a little help getting our “groove” back after we’ve had children or reached a certain age. Arouse Stimulating Serum has definitely become one of my go-to products. If you’ve been feeling a lack of sensation, it will help enhance any sensual encounter. Using a natural stimulant, Spilanthes Acmella, it will deliver a gentle tingle to the most intimate areas. This luxurious serum stimulates, lubricates, plumps and tingles! 

These days, I’ve got plenty of aches and pains. I’d been searching for a natural source of pain relief instead of constantly reaching for the bottle of aspirin. I’ve heard wonderful feedback from friends that tried CBD products for pain relief. I loved getting to check out Muscle MX CBD Balm, it worked fantastic for me! Muscle MX CBD Balm is THC-free and made in the USA with all-natural ingredients.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate works at the start of your day, apply first thing when you wake up. Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate will help prevent any pain later in the day. I love to use this on the back of my calves and lower back.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Recovery is the perfect remedy for sore muscles. My husband swears by this stuff after a long day at work! It’s icy cool and feels so soothing anywhere I’m feeling tension or pain.

For additional muscle relief, the Rykr Roll is a unique handheld massager that gently applies accupressure to muscles. I love using Rykr Roll on my feet, calves, arms, back, and temples! Self massage is an effective method of pain relief that doesn’t involve costly pills or prescriptions with dangerous side effects.

Rykr Roll works on muscles to increase oxygen flow and improve blood circulation. In addition to relief for sore muscles, Rykr Roll also works to relieve symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these new and exciting women’s health products! Let’s make 2020 the year that we feel our best! What products have you been enjoying this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

Have We Found the Perfect Lipstick Duo?

Swedish Jealousy Week - Weekend Lipstick Duo
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ll be the first to admit that I love when makeup products come in sets. It’s a great way to get multiple items at an excellent deal, and you’re getting the opportunity to try out a brand. So, of course, I jumped at the change to test out a lipstick duo that looked like the perfect pair for a day to night look.

About Swedish Jealousy

Swedish Jealousy is a new-to-me brand that created makeup for all skin tones. The duo who founded the company wanted to “bridge the gap usually found in makeup,” because they couldn’t share a tube of lipstick. They worked hard to create and test out dozens of lipstick formulas until they found the two perfect shades that looked incredible on both of them. 

The brand is Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, and Gluten-Free. Let’s take a look at the lipstick duo!

Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set

Not going to lie, I just about squealed when I opened this package and saw both of the lipstick shades. They’re wearable for both day and night looks and works well on all skin tones, which was important to the founders.

The Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set ($23.50) features Week, a nude rose pink, that you can apply to the lips without a mirror, and weekend, is a bold, yet wearable watermelon red. Both lipsticks are creamy and apply to the lips evenly. They’re highly moisturizing and will last throughout the day. However, if you do a lot of snacking and drink a lot of coffee or water throughout the day, you will need to re-apply, which is normal with lipsticks.

I wear Week a lot, and I have even received several compliments from people, even asking me where I got it. The price for these two lipsticks is reasonable and worth checking out if you’re shopping around for a new lipstick brand to test out.

If your daughters are anything like mine, bath bombs have become a hit. Every time we walk passed the bath bombs at our local grocery stores, I know my girls are going to ask to buy one. And as a parent, I really want to tell the YES because this is something new and exciting for them. They have seen reviews on youtube that are partially to blame for this excitement. But I also know that not all bath bombs are made equally. At the ages of 3 and 5, I wanted peace of mind when I put them in the bathtub with a bath bomb included. I finally found a company that creates truly clean and cruelty-free beauty products with young girls in mind.

A Better Smile For A Better Future

A Better Smile For A Better Future
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When meeting someone for the first time your smile is the first thing they see. Sometimes though, that smile can be something that you want to hide. Dental health is so important, and now that I have children I’m looking to improve our whole dental health as a family. Now making a better smile for a better future. Keep reading to find out some great dental products that will keep your smile brighter and teeth healthier.

A Better Smile for a Better Future.

I’ll admit that up until recently I really hadn’t given much thought to my teeth or dental health. I’d brush them like I was supposed too but it wasn’t until my middle daughter had to have dental surgery at the age of 3 did I really start to reevaluate how I looked at my teeth and smile. I had always been so self-conscious about my smile because I used to get made fun of about my teeth. I want to be able to smile fully and not be afraid to show my smile now as I get older. That means taking extra care to keep my smile healthy.

Kansas Bonanno

My middle daughter was three when we first really noticed her issues with her teeth. Like my oldest daughter at the time, we brushed and flossed did everything we were supposed to but something just wasn’t right. She ended up having to have a tooth pulled and I swore that from that day we were going to invest in our dental health more and make sure that we were using great products to help keep our dental health up to top-notch.

Bamboo Toothbrush

The company I’d like to introduce is called TreeBird. TreeBird is a great company that works to make sustainable dental products. Created back in 2018, this company is changing the way we look at toothbrushes and floss. These bamboo toothbrushes are the perfect addition to any family. They have sturdy handles that are easy to grip, soft bristles that leave your teeth and gums feeling clean. Sized for both adults and children.

Silk Eco Floss

TreeBird also uses compostable silk floss instead of plastic floss. With the perfect hint of a minty taste, it has your breath feeling extremely fresh and clean. It comes in a glass jar that is refillable and even the packaging is biodegradable. These products by TreeBird are the perfect way to reduce your footprint and take better care of the planet. To get your amazing bamboo toothbrushes and floss check out their website, Facebook, or Instagram.

Which of these dental products do you think will be a perfect fit for your family?

Three Things We Love To Do On The Weekend!

What do you like to do on the WEEKEND? Do you like to rest, clean, party, or 101 million other things that are out there to do! Do you stay at home and unwind from the week or are you the weekend party animal? I think I go in stages. A couple of years ago I was out every weekend, nowadays I just want to CHILL!

Weekends Are The Best To Unwind!

When it comes to weekends, I try not to make a lot of plans. If I had it my way, I would lay in bed all weekend drinking coffee, eating chips, and watching “YOU” on Netflix, but that is only a wish. Most people take the weekend to unwind from the week though.

We need to remember that weekends are blessings because we create memories on the weekends.

I enjoy COMFORT on the weekend.

T-shirts are a MUST on weekends.  

Usually, during the week, you have to dress up for work, so I love to ROCK MY FAVORITE T-SHIRTS on the weekends. Why weekends? Why not? I have more time to show off the shirt and have people comment, “Oh, I like your T-shirt” or ask me where I got it from- like this t-shirt from Boredwalk TShirts Los Angeles. They have T-shirts for EVERYONE! 

I love this shirt because it is SO ME- Cute but Prickly and I love the fact that the cactus looks like it is flipping you off- or is it just me? Boredwalk Tshirts have the best sayings, so if you are a t-shirt person, you better check them out and get some trendy tee’s in your wardrobe before spring is here. Shirts with sayings or funny pictures are the perfect ice breaker. How many times have you commented on someone’s T-shirt- I know I have a MILLION TIMES…ok, maybe 1000. 

Next weekend throw on your favorite t-shirt and some jeans and you are set. Go for a walk downtown and see how many people commit on your shirt. I know I would if I saw you.  

Get my nails done!

I love to get my nails done. Men too- my man likes to go in and get a pedicure when I go in to get my nails done. I work with my hands, so they need to look good all the time. Sitting in a chair and having someone pamper you is AMAZING!  

Go in every couple weeks to get your nails done- it also does your self-love some good too. When you feel good on the outside, you will also feel good inside. Or least I do. Something about getting your nails done all pretty makes me feel like a new woman. Weird, I know, but it is something I love to do for myself. Pretty nails are my thing, and I enjoy doing this on the weekend. 

Read a book on the weekend.

During the week, I’m so busy with my work, family, and household requirements that I rarely have time to read anymore. I love books that are easy but entertaining, so I found that young adult books are exactly what I like to read. 

Let me tell you about the book I’m reading now…WARDENS OF ETERNITY (just released) by Courtney Moulton (author of the acclaimed Angelfire series) #OwnVoices. If you like an action-packed page-turner, which blends history, mythology, and magic, then this book is for YOU!  

Such a smooth read that keeps me wanting more. Every night before bed, I try to read some pages before my mind shuts down. It is about a young woman, and the days leading up to World War II. She has to rely on her wit and magic to outmaneuver the Nazis and ancient Egyptian gods to prevent global destruction. Right- sounds exciting, huh- IT IS! 

Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty, so her magic has been passed down. Her parents abandoned her when she was 3 yrs old in New York. Some parents! The story takes place fifteen years later, and Ziva is learning how to control her magical skills. She has a lot of power, and very evil people want to take that all away from her- want to know what happens well, you better get yourself a copy NOW on Amazon. 

Now I shared three things I love to do on the weekends, but there is so much more fun to have- please share what you like to do on the weekend.
