Put Your Best Face Forward for Graduation Day

Graduation Day

*I was provided with tips and products from Clean & Clear It's been 12 years since I've thought about Graduation Day. Honestly, I didn't even go to my own high school graduation ceremony. By the time my peers were walking across the stage I had graduated a semester early, enrolled at the local community college and walked down the aisle with my husband. I had no interest in being center stage, even if it was among 300 other classmates. But … [Read more...]

As a mom I spend a lot of time making sure everyone in my family is healthy. Sometimes I'm so concerned with everyone else's needs I put my own aside. It's a daily battle to remember to eat properly, exercise or even take a stress-free break. Skipping meals, lack of exercise, not getting enough hours of sleep and daily stress all contribute to frequent digestive problems from indigestion to constipation. Both of which are NOT something a mom … [Read more...]

When your a full-time mom in a house with 3 kids, there really is no such thing as free-time or even me-time.

When temperatures drop in Illinois they really drop. This past week it has been below 30 degrees F, sometimes with a wind chill much lower.

Since I'm not fond of lotions that often leave my skin feeling greasy, I focus my efforts on body washes that provide the moisture my skin needs to stay … [Read more...]

Monthly delivery programs seem to have become quite a popular thing these days. There's a delivery service for just about anything and after months of wavering I finally picked a service that would be a good fit for me. Cravebox is one of the many but it's unique in a way that each box is based around a rather random theme. For instance, there are some boxes coming up that include the Big Game box (football theme), Return to School box (back to … [Read more...]

Personally, I've never been a huge fan of makeup products. They've either not performed as well as I'd hoped or I found the color options to be too bold for my personality. I think there's a fine line between enhancing natural beauty and a clown face. That doesn't mean I've given up on makeup altogether though. There are three products that I keep in my makeup pouch at all times that I know any woman would appreciate. First, my mascara of … [Read more...]

There's a lot of pressure for teens heading back to school in just a few short weeks. I know my own pre-teen son is feeling a bit nervous about starting a new year with a new teacher, different classmates and now his hormones going a bit crazy. One thing I don't want him (or any other teen) to worry about is how he'll look. It's already tough to fit in with the ever changing styles so I help him manage his new year stress with products to make … [Read more...]
