Health & Beauty: I Gave Myself the Gift of Health this Christmas with a #StepsToWellness Journey

I gave myself the best gift I could possibly give this year. The gift of health. Being a codependent, workaholic means I put the needs of others before my own. For most of my working adult life I’ve put work ahead of my health. I used it as an excuse to skip the gym and constantly ate fast food because I devoted lunches to working at my desk rather than prepare lunches at home and bring them to work. I used business trips as an excuse to try the most outrageous, gooey meals possible.

I Took My Vitamins and during a Month of Travel Didn’t Break Fingernails and Stayed Healthy

I’ve been taking Nature Made® VitaMelts because I’ve accepted I’m no longer a spry thirty-something-year-old with the stamina for staying awake and functioning 48 hours at a time, I’ve been consciously taking better care of myself including taking my vitamins. By adding vitamins and supplements into my nutrition plan, I suspect they’ve contributed to my well being.

Health & Beauty: “Eye” See a Difference After Using Fysiko Lash Growth Serum

  “Eye” see a difference after using Fysiko Lash Growth Serum and for four months (that’s 16 weeks!), can you? Way back in May when this beauty experiment began I really wasn’t sure what to expect. Would it really give me #LongerLashes as it promised? Would my lashes become more lush? Comparing photos from Day 1 to the end of Week 16 (see top photo), there’s definitely a difference in fullness and...

Health & Beauty: After 12 Weeks, Seeing Lush Lashes with Fysiko Lash Growth Serum

It’s been 12 weeks of using Fysiko Lash Growth Serum and I’m pretty sure I’m seeing lush lashes. You may have heard of the butterfly effect but let me tell you about the #LongerLashes effect. With the bat of an eye I’m able to conquer the world. Well, not really, but I do feel pretty rockin’ with a set of lashes I know are mine, all mine, and won’t fall off or smudge in Florida humidity. Comparing...

Don’t Be a Travel Slug. Eat Dark Chocolate to Ease Your Jet Lag

Don’t be a travel slug. Eat dark chocolate and ease your jetlag. Although I love it, travel is sometimes my nemesis. Giving into airport food temptations, not drinking enough water when traveling between Point A and Point B, and catching a few hours of sleep in order to catch an o’dark-thirty flight often makes me feel sluggish.

Waldorf Astoria Orlando Turned Me into a Spa Princess

I entered the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa a stressed out young professional and left a relaxed, chilled princess. Central Florida just isn’t for kids, it’s a great getaway for adults looking to escape the everyday grind and the Waldorf Astoria kindly reminded me of that. It’s been almost a month and I’m still feeling my cheeks in disbelief as to how soft they feel.

Health & Beauty Review: Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Gelastic Ultra Strong Flex Gel

Do I love it? Do I not? That’s the question I’m still trying to answer about Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Gelastic Ultra Strong Flex Gel I received last month from Influenster in my Spring VoxBox. It does what it says it promises to do: offer ultra strong style control all day long, dries with a firm strong finish and has lasting definition.

Health & Beauty: One Month After Using Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum and Seeing Results

My educational background is in science which makes me a somewhat skeptical person. If a product or service markets itself as something too good to be true, I need to see it in order to believe it. I’ll admit, when I began this journey a month ago to lengthen and enhance my eyelashes with Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum I was skeptical it would do anything but was optimistic. What Has My Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum Routine Been...
