Making our happy contagious

Last night's dinner party was probably one the best family holidays to date... and to top to off, it was also the first time that I prepared the Thanksgiving meal. I wanted to do it right, where even the silk flowers seemed to serve a purpose, so I headed to Target for all my decorating needs and Whole Foods for the rest. Having recently accepted an organic lifestyle, conversation swelled over the handmade pommes puree with Celtic sea salt, decadent bite-sized dessert options, the giant stalk of choux de brussels and a freakishly cool Buddha's Hand citron that sat center of attention at the dining table. It felt pretty magical. 

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Youth Express Eye Serum & Youth Express Eye Gel

Around here, the weather changes with the blink of an eye... and this time of year, as the cold rushes in and the sun disappears, the constant overcast makes me feel like I'm sleepwalking. Everything reminds me of naptime and before long, the sleeping beauty curse doesn't sound too bad. When given the opportunity to work with InstaNatural, a leading global distributor of nature inspired beauty and cosmetics products, I was thrilled to say, "Bye-bye tired eyes." 
 Using Youth Express Eye Serum in conjunction with Youth Express Eye Gel, my results have been great! The highly concentrated blend of ingredients designed to restore a youthful glow to the eye area decreases the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. Even though I just started using them, I can already see the difference. Having tried a handful of different creams, gels, and serums in the past, I was so pleased to find one that does exactly what it says it will do. Plus, it smells won…

Vitamins for Happy Tresses

Nobody wants to think about thinning hair, and when extra strands start blanketing your bathroom floor it can be very scary. As women, we tend to put our locks through the ringer by blow-drying, straightening, coloring, and raking a brush through wet tresses. Big no no. But everyday stress and hormonal imbalances play a part too. Hair loss afflicts men and women and to some degree, it's perfectly normal.But it can be a sign of a more serious problem so it's important to take those vital steps in improving your hair health and that means taking your daily vitamins.
