I’ve been coloring my hair, in some shape or form, since I was a teenager. From henna rinses and box dyes to bleaching highlights that recently took me from brunette to a blonde. You’d think I would have lost my hair by now, but by some miracle, my hair still looks fairly thick and healthy. Ok, maybe it’s more than just by miracle. Perhaps it’s just knowing how to take care of bleached hair.
I decided to do a three-day detox, this week, and I’m happy to report I made it! Having autoimmune disorders, from endometriosis to PMDD, and hypothyroidism (to name a few), I learned that clean eating is one of the best ways to alleviate symptoms. But, let’s be realistic, not all of us are made to live on carrot juice. Nevertheless, I did partake in a 3-Day Detox, this week. I’m going to share the basic guidelines I followed. What I ended up eating, each day, along with how I felt.
As the saying goes, summer deserves a speeding ticket! It surely does fly by, fast. I had been longing to get to the beach with Baby Blue since Memorial Day. But, it wasn’t until late August before Blue’s tiny toes hit the sand. Scott and I took Baby Blue to Wildwood Crest~New Jersey, with friends for a mini 2-night stay. Last week, we celebrated my birthday with a five day stay in Avalon, NJ. This was our official end-of-summer vacation with Baby Blue. And, it was well worth the wait!
Sometimes, on rare occasion, I am asked for my take on diet & exercise. I usually assert my personal tongue in cheek phrase, Snickers and Squats.
I am not embarrassed to admit that I have a very healthy appetite. I can out-eat most men. I’ve entered more than one All-You-Can-Eat Wing Bowls- Once, against a large group of high school boys (as their church youth leader) and eh hem, won first prize. And yes, I am often spotted holding up buffet lines with my second helping of dinner or dessert. What can I say? My appetite is extraordinary.
You’re probably reading this, for one of two reasons. Either, you’re thinking about quitting your day job to do what looks so much easier, more glamorous, and fun! (Trust me. It’s not nearly as much as you think.) Or, you want to show support to the Blogger, Instagrammer, and/or You Tuber that is sharing awesome, FREE content with you on a regular basis. (Thank you!!!) Either way, it’s a fair question. How do Social Media Influencers make money? Here are a few ways…
I want to start my own business. I want to join the gym. I want to spend more time with my friends. I want to write a book. I want to adopt. I want to join a church. I want to get my family together, on Sundays. I want to learn how to play the piano. I want to be a life coach. I want to be a public speaker. I want to go on a mission’s trip. (Fill in the blank: ________)
Ok, so we have all seen the movie, “The Notebook”, right? Probably more than once. One of my favorite parts is after Allie returns to Noah, and before running off, he asks her, “What do you want?”
Oh, this entire movie tugs on my heart strings. I feel like I can relate to Allie in so many ways. I believe this scene resonates with all women, because it’s so true. Sometimes, we don’t know or we just forget what we want. WHY?
You didn’t think I’d leave out the family, did you? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which comes only once a year, is one of the best sales for good reason. Last week, I shared some of the 2018 Fall Fashion Trends for women, along with my top picks from the sale. The week before that, I shared my personal picks, including some classic pieces that are most popular. So, today, I’m providing my top picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for the Men, Kids, and Home!
Every year, there are official Fashion Week events that help fashionistas plan their upcoming seasonal wardrobe. I have never been to one, yet. But, my goal is to attend NYFW in the Fall of 2019! Fortunately, we can see everything on-line. So, I wanted to share some of the Fall 2018 Fashion Trends that have been projected from the winter events.
You may, or may not, have heard of it. The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes place, in July, and it is unique in one major factor. These are all items that are coming out in the Fall, and for a limited time, you can snag your favorite picks for a great discount! So, saddle up, and get yourself ready. I’m going to give you the lay of the land and share how this works, how you can prepare, and what I will be adding to my personal wish list.
Over the past few years, Scott and I have become somewhat addicted to drama-related television series. After a full day of doing our own thing, putting the baby to bed, doing dishes, and picking up toys, we anticipate our down time, relaxing, and watching an hour of TV. It’s just enough time before one of us declares, “I’m falling asleep!”
