the best cream for dry winter skin

The temperatures have dropped below zero and my skin has started to look more like a shedding snake than healthy human skin. It seems like no matter how much water I drink or how hydrate I am my hands feel dry and crackly. In fact it isn’t just my hands, my legs are so flaky! I am sure an entire small human could be created with the skin…

the make up eraser review

While I like to play with makeup taking it off at the end of the day can be such a chore. Especially around the eyes. I love layering on the mascara when I do my makeup and that can leave raccoon eyes if not taken off completely. Make up remover makes taking makeup off much easier, but it means you always need to have it on hand. What…

October 23, 2014

While I can try on a sweater or a pair of pants and know right away they look fantastic or terrible, some things take some time to really know whether they work.

3 products to eliminate neck pimples

July 23, 2014

I have a confession to make. For the past 5 years I have been battling neck pimples. It all goes back to when I first got pregnant with my daughter. No matter what I did I just didn’t have clear skin. It was all the hormones. One of the places that broke out that I had never dealt with before (who knew I would have NEW acne problems…


5 ways to make your workout more Enjoyable

July 2, 2014

I am back on the workout train. I fell off around last November and couldn’t seem to get motivated all winter or spring.
