Let's help our teens be ready!

Your kids have been home doing virtual school for the better part of the last school year. Going back to school next week may be both a time of excitement and also anxiety about being back at a desk, with a real teacher, in person.

You, Mom and Dad, have been real troopers helping your kids with online learning while holding down the household, your careers, and managing your own pandemic anxiety. You all deserve a Gold Medal!

7 of the Best Ways to Conquer your Puffy Eyes and Wrinkles

I am passionate about pro-aging which means finding ways to answer the question that is often asked by women all around the world which is "How to age gracefully with diet, exercise and wellness products?". I feel very strongly that right off the bat we need to stop thinking about aging as a bad thing. If you aren't aging, then you aren't alive. 

Having said that, I believe that we can age with grace and beauty and, most importantly, appropriately for our age. Have you ever met someone that is your age or younger but looks much, much older than you or older than you would have guessed?

Chances are high that they have been living large and not following some basic fundamental principles of looking after their skin. It could also be genetics or skin type, of course, as some people are prone to age quicker than others.

Why would I want to use oil on my face?  

With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain.

Why My Laundry Obsession is a Metaphor For Life: With 2020 Eco Updates

My laundry rituals have certainly changed though over the years and have made the most radical changes since this blog post was first published in 2016 (this is a late 2020 update, almost 2021) with lots of healthier, eco-friendly and sustainable laundry ritual ideas for you to adopt. 

I care even moreso about the quality of my laundry, in a healthy non-toxic way, now in 2020. I will not use toxic chemicals in my laundry room nor in my house anywhere. I have switched to fragrance-free, natural detergent (because the word "fragrance" can be used as a catch all for 10,000 chemicals that manufacturing companies do not need to disclose to you, the consumer).
