Shop for a cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Shop for a cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post.) I love to shop (which is not a secret), but sometimes I do suffer from “Buyer’s Remorse” after I buy something (especially if that “something” is for myself).  Like most people, I just don’t like wasting money or spending it on foolish wasteful things. However, I never regret buying things, such as the items below, because I know that my money is going toward a great cause.  In this case, I’m talking about breast cancer research. I am so happy that such...

6 Benefits of Manuka Honey

6 Benefits of Manuka Honey

Winnie the Pooh  and I have one major thing in common- neither of us wear pants. Just kidding (much to the future relief of my children). What we actually have in common is that we both love honey. I always buy local honey and use in my tea, spread it on toast, and add it to my smoothies to make them a bit sweeter. Even though I like honey because of the taste, there’s one kind of honey from New Zealand that I like for different reasons, and that’s manuka honey.  Manuka honey contains active hydrogen peroxide and methylglyoxyl...

Friday Favorites (9/26)

Happy Friday! Despite not feeling great this week, I managed to build quite a hefty list of favorites.  As always, I narrowed it down to five and hope you enjoy reading about them.   Korres Black Pine Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Night Cream I received a sample of this night cream, and I definitely plan to purchase the full sized product.  Because I only got a few uses out of my sample, I don’t know if its anti-aging claims hold true, but I loved how glowing and radiant my skin looked the next day after using the cream.

Lip scrubs to address any beauty concern

Lip scrubs to address any beauty concern

Over the course of the summer, the sun can really take a beating on our lips leaving them burned and dehydrated.  Then the cooler months roll around and all of that wind and crisp air can make them dry and chapped. A few weeks ago, I wrote about some of my favorite exfoliating products for the face.  Well, it is every bit as important to exfoliate our lips to keep them soft and supple all year round- and anyone who might kiss you soon will surely be appreciative. Because it can sometimes be overwhelming to choose which products to use, I...
