@gratefulbodysc *Beauty is not one size fits* all aquative/midnight body oil #giveaway #glutenfree


We are not one size fits all, so there is no need for our beauty needs to be either.  I am almost down to the last 2 weeks of the 90 day beachbody program with RevAbs.  I have been working hard and enjoy treating myself without food. Beauty products are a great way to enhance & encourage all our efforts. So, what is worthy of our efforts... Imagine a company that offers cruelty free, vegan, & raw ingredients.  Then, combine that with the fact that the products are blended by hand in artisan-sized batches with a low-tech approach (absolutely no exposure to high heat, chemicals, or any other factors that might compromise the value and effectiveness of our creations). About Grateful Body "Following Mother Nature's rules . . . Biologically Appropriate Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff.   ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ Our body is very particular, very precise about what it uses to keep itself strong and … [Read more...]

@alphahydrox Montagne Jeunesse Masques Review


I am nearing the end of my 90 day Beach body program (to see click here).  There is more to being healthy than your physical appearance.  I think that learning to pamper yourself for your victories can boost your state of mind rather than setting yourself back with food.  Facials are a great way to relax & invigorate yourself.  However, spending the time or money getting one done professional can be discouraging.  The solution: Montagne Jeunesse!   About "Do you find yourself stressed out?

@NaturalizerShoe “Shoe to the Rescue” at blogher? Yes, please! #Naturalizer


As a mom of 3, my fashion sense has always revolved around being stylish yet functional.  My wardrobe falls in this in-between category of classic and bohemian chic that I have collected over the years from thrift stores, boutiques, and mass merchants.  While I am a fan of shoes, my mom taught me early that comfort is key.  I have always loved to stretch my money further.  As a result, I won't purchase a pair of shoes that aren't comfortable, because odds are I won't get my money's worth.  High heels are fun since I am petite, but not worth the effort if they hurt my feet. During college, I was told for my professional life to splurge on a pair of heels and an actual suit.  I remember searching and searching for the perfect, comfortable heels.  It is hard sometimes finding comfortable shoes with personality.  I ended up falling in love with a pair of Naturalizer pumps.  I felt like a real grown-up walking around in heels and my feet did not hurt at the end of the day!  Thanks to … [Read more...]

Bosley Professional Strength Women’s Hair System Review & Giveaway


When we think of thinning or balding, images immediately go to men's receding hairlines and beyond.  However, since our medication, illness, infection, hormones or chemicals can affect our hair growth, women too suffer from thinning hair.  Auto-immune disorders can cause thinning hair.  When I was younger my hair was very thin.  Due to untreated Celiac Disease, I was malnourished and nutrient-deprived that provides an unfriendly atmosphere for hair growth.  Women normally notice their thinning hair on the top third to one half of the scalp, which can be more prominent when pullling the hair back.  Thankfully Bosley known for being "The World's Most Experienced Hair Restoration Expert" has non-invasive options to help you stop hair loss and  restore what you have lost!
