Skincare Confessions, From Home.

I’m a work from home (and stay-at-home) mom with two loving, high energy kids under the age of 6. Like many of us, I’m grateful to stay put and thankful for those who keep our country going – yet I also find the days are busier than ever, leaving very little time for self-care. Here are my daily skincare confessions!  Confession #1: I’ve been skipping some…

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…

The Good of Glycerin: Why It’s So Important in Skincare

So, what exactly is Glycerin?  I must admit I didn’t know much about Glycerin before writing this post even after years spent working in the cosmetics industry.  If I was playing one of those word games and Glycerin came out, I’d probably shout “SOAP!” without a second thought.  And it’s true – Glycerin is a component of many, many personal products we…

Handle Your Morning 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…

Travel Light, Summer Style

I love a good packing challenge.  For our most recent trip, 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, too. I…

Turmeric Root: Antioxidants To The Rescue

Turmeric is quite literally a golden ingredient.  We see it every day – in our food (shown above in a Turmeric latte), supplements and even in skincare. I myself have a container of Turmeric powder that I use every few days (I would take a picture for you, but let’s just say Marie Kondo would not approve…
