Travel Light, Summer Style

I love a good packing challenge.  I’ll never forget the trip where I was able to fit all of our belongings for ONE WEEK in ONE carry-on – for a family of four! (That’s two adults, two kids, and 1-2 pairs of shoes apiece plus snacks). Disclaimer: we’ll take a backpack for things we might need en-route,…

The Care 2020 Gift Guide!

I love the act of giving – as my sister says, it’s one of my love languages. To me, it’s more about knowing the person, what makes them tick, what they like, and how I can show them I care even when I can’t see them in person (thanks, 2020!)  Together with Natalia, Care’s Marketing Manager,…

Maskne, No More!

Have you noticed those little bumps, pimples, red spots or patches of irritation after repeatedly wearing a mask to work or – in my case – even after one trip to the grocery store? Most likely it’s maskne – something new that’s popped up (literally) during the global pandemic. Dermatologists have said that mask rubbing, or even sweating underneath a mask, can lead to skin irritation. Here are a few great tips…

Help My Sensitive Skin!

Even after having two, I can still say my skin is as sensitive as a baby’s. For many years, my skin couldn’t tolerate lots of things – most new makeup and skincare products, various sunscreens, pillowcases, and even hotel towels!  When it comes down to it, for people who have sensitive skin (as well as rosacea, eczema, and other skin concerns) it’s usually fragrance that is…

Power Up with Vitamin C!

Last winter, I was constantly getting sick from the kids – picking up their coughs and sneezes as often as I picked up their laundry.  I scheduled a visit with my doctor to do routine bloodwork and to see if there was any medication or precaution I could use to better maintain my health.  When we met for our consultation, he simply told me this – Vitamin C was my best…

Hyaluronic Acid + Moisturizer Myths

Never has my skin taken so well to an ingredient. The word “acid” seems alarming at first, but I love what Hyaluronic Acid does for my face and the health of my skin.  As you may have read or heard, Hyaluronic Acid (which looks like a pure, clear jelly) is a molecule that can hold up to 1,000x its weight in…

Handle Your AM Like a Boss

Mornings might have been the boss of me lately, but I realize that has got to change. I’ve truly never been a “rise and shine” person, even after a coffee and a shot of espresso.  It was hard enough getting out the door when I was single, and now with two kids (and two school…

Major Multi-Tasking on the Daily

Wow, there’s a lot we have to accomplish on a day to day basis – and that’s the understatement of the year.  The positive side is it’s wonderful to add value to your work, home, family and community.  On the flip side: how on earth can we get all of this done?  Anecdotally, I have two full…
