Keep Your Nose Clean with Oogiebear

Have you ever gone to a playground or a play date and see a child (or two) with a big dry/slimy booger just hanging there; a booger that you would pull out yourself if it were your own kid. Yes, they are gross. BUT, they’re something that happens to the best of us.   I mean, better out than in, right? Or how about when it’s your own child and you’re rushing to get a wipe or something that can fish…

The Teal Pumpkin Project

It’s that time of year, where there’s pumpkin everything, colder weather, Halloween parties, and of course, tons of sweets. For most of us, it’s an exiting time of year for sugar highs, and togetherness. For others, it’s the time of year to feel left out and awkwardly different; particularly for your little ones. Why? Because there are some little ones that have terrible food allergies and can’t eat most things that are handed out for Halloween. OR, some of us…

Platex Sport Fresh Balance

Well this may be embarrassing (or not)…but I guess it’s something that affect a lot of women in their lives at some point or another…. your period.  Yes I said Period.  I’ll say it again…PERIOD! LOL.  We all want to have something to absorb, and also be comfortable and easy to use.  I found that was the case with Platex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons.    I received these tampons from influenster to review and I have to say that I’m…

Sugar Really Isn’t Sweet

As we’re all trying to eat healthier and better… us beauties are always on the hunt for better alternatives to sugar, while not ingesting those fake sweetener chemicals that are just as bad if not worse than simply ingesting sugar.  One thing to note is the actual amount of sugar that we find in our foods.   When you read the label of an item, and you see “21 grams sugar”…what does that actually mean?  When you really think about it…sugar…

The All Natural Lie

Can I just say #$@! the words “All-Natural”?!?!? I mean, excuse my rant, but the marketing departments of food companies (and cosmetics) have really pushed the phrase “All Natural” to the maximum limit when it comes to foods. Yes, we all need to eat more foods around the perimeter of the store (which I do), however for those snack foods you like to have around the house for you and the kiddos…the word’s “All-Natural” have lost all meaning to me…its…

Six Tips for Success at SOULCYCLE

Soulcycle has been all the rage, so I decided to give it a try… I don’t know about you, but the thought of taking classes at the gym really bore me (YAWN).  I really get bored because classes are usually too slow of a pace for me, and I end up wasting my time and not putting forth the effort. I’ve even walked out of a class before too.  So I’ll tell ya, I was a little nervous before I…

To Be ORGANIC or Not To Be

Yesterday I was talking to my girlfriend about Organic Veggies and Fruits and it occurred to me that some people are seriously being duped into buying produce that is not organic, and is even GMO sometimes.  So here’s a quick guide to help you “see” what you’re buying. When purchasing produce always always ALWAYS check the PLU code.  The PLU code will tell you if a fruit or veggie is 1) organic, 2) conventionally grown, 3) Genetically Modified (GMO), or…

1 Thing You Can Do To Eat Cleaner Food

Now that Pesticides and GMO’s are in the news, people are having a tendency to head for the Organic section of the markets (and even farmers markets)…I know I am!!  I don’t want any part of those chemicals in my body, or my baby’s for that matter. However even buying organic can have some precautions of its’ own.  Since you’re buying better (in my opinion), you’re also buying fruits and veggies that are being trampled on by bugs, and birds,…

The ONE thing that could be causing your breakouts

We all know that skin creams (and eye creams) come in many different types of packaging.  They range from a squeeze tube, to a container, to individual application tablets.    I personally love to have my creams in jars to make sure I’m able to get every last drop of my money’s worth!   However, having your cream in a jar can introduce many unknown bacteria and dirt that you may not be aware of.  AND you know where it comes from?…
