These beauty blunders can add years to your face. Foundation that’s too light – If you use a foundation shade that’s paler than your skin tone it will exaggerate your fine lines and wrinkles. Contact your Independent Consultant to help match your skin tone perfectly with liquid or wet/dry foundation. Too much concealer on dark circles – Our skin under our eyes gets thinner and thinner each year as we age which can make thick concealer look like paste. Keep your concealer light and airy by applying with a brush to distribute the color more evenly. Be sure to only apply to the dark circles, not your entireRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! When my Zaggora Hot Pants showed up about 3 weeks ago, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve heard about all sorts of products that you wear to lose inches, but I always wondered whether they really worked. I was excited to try Zaggora’s new Hot Pants, that promised to remove unwanted inches from waist and legs. I took them out of the package and immediately put them on, and off to Zumba I went. When I got to Zumba, I showed off my Hot Pants to everyone in the place. They can be worn alone, butRead More →

Well, it’s official…I’m a Food Affairiate! I was blessed to be selected as one of the Bloggers to receive a preview copy of Beth Aldrich’s new book, Real Moms Love to Eat! Now this is a review that I can really get into, one that involves food! First, I have to say that Beth is a vibrant, exhilarating writer. Before she sent me a copy of the book, I thought “I hope this isn’t just another cookbook”. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The book is not only about recipes, it’s also about Beth, her family, and her love affair with food. We get insight into why Beth wroteRead More →

As the mother of 3 boys, I take a lot of care to keep them healthy all year long, especially during cold and flu season. The kids don’t like to miss school, because that means “make-up” work, so I’m fortunate that our tactics have worked since they were little. Here are some of my tips to keep them healthy & happy year-round. Wash your hands for 20 seconds and do it often. I’ve taught the kids from the time they learned their ABC’s that singing the ABC song while washing hands is a great way to send those nasty germs down the drain. It’s alsoRead More →

With our family having so many school and extracurricular activities, it’s hard to keep the house neat and tidy, especially the kids’ rooms. It seems that it’s an endless chore to have them pick up toys, put clothes away and actually have room on their bed to sleep. Our biggest issue is cluttered floors from toys. In our house, it seems that every time a toy comes out to play, it doesn’t find it’s home again for weeks. Recently, I saw a new system called Hot Wheels Wall Tracks that might just help me with our little problem (can you hear the sarcasm – it’s really aRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! When I was asked review Kleenex’s new products, I was already a Kleenex fan. But when I got the package in the mail, I was blown away! The new and improved packages were exactly what I needed to make my allergy-prone family more comfortable on-the-go. So what’s so great about new packaging? It’s the same old product, right? Not always… I couldn’t count how many boxes of Kleenex have been stepped on & broken open in my minivan, leaving the Kleenex strewn all over the place. This wasn’t an issue with the boxes themselves, it’s just a factRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! I was lucky enough to have enough Klout to be sent an Armchair Detective Kit containing a DVD set of the first year of the show Rizzoli & Isles. The kit included a red blanket, a pair of handcuff earrings, a mug, a booklight and a bookmark, all imprinted the Rizzoli & Isles logo. A neat gift if I should say so myself! I have to be honest, I hadn’t seen the show before, I hadn’t even seen a preview of it. I was intrigued by the cover of the DVD set which shows Jane Rizzoli (played by  AngieRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! The beginning of school is quickly approaching, and my boys are getting excited about the first day of school. But how can we make going back to school safer and easier for kids these days? Here are my top 5 tips on making the kids feel safe and secure for the new school year: Make sure that the kids know their phone numbers and address. It takes time for the office staff to get student records in order, and you’ll want the kids to be able to contact you whether it be for a stomach ache or anRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! If you’re like me, you’re the Mom (or Dad) Taxi, and you’re in the car most of the day every day of the week. Now I know what my mom went through when my sisters and I were younger. Running around town, getting one kid to this event and hustling over to the next event to pick a kid up. There are times when I don’t even get a chance to grab something to drink, let alone eat lunch. Ever wonder how you can make your time in the car more pleasant, or at least less stressful?
