And you think you've heard it all...A Vaginal Steam Bath for Gwyneth Paltrow! #celebrities

When you keep up on celebrity gossip and trends, sometimes you hear more than you really want to and sometimes you are just completely blown away! When I say a headline this morning for a "Vaginal Steam Bath" I was so intrigued that I clicked on the article to read on...Wow! 

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for hygiene and preventative procedures and although I have never participated in anything like this I think I might enjoy a day of luxury spa treatments. Apparently the Vaginal Steam Bath has so many positive effects like helping to balance female hormones and assisting with fertility issues and appointments are being booked like crazy...it's all the rage in California right now, with this particular spa going from 3 treatments to 10 per day!

Taking Care of Yourself is Important at Any Age #skincare

Links to this post

Nature can seem so cruel, and it seems to be worse to women. However, what most women don't know is that the key to looking younger rests mostly in their daily habits. It's important to take care of health, but many women end up neglecting themselves for one reason or another. It can happen after a woman gets married. She may lose herself in taking care of her husband. It can happen after a woman gives birth. The first months of a child's life can leave a woman sleepless and depleted. It happens, but it's important for women to think about what they need to do to take care of their health. More importantly, women need to take daily action to do so.

Everyone loves traveling to an exotic location in the summer, to unwind and have the time of their lives. Nothing brings families and relationships together, like a summer holiday at a luxury resort on a secluded beach. The only downside is the exorbitant cost of a holiday getaway.

BACtrack Vio Smartphone Breathalyzer #bactrack

Links to this post

So the holiday season is over and you've had fun at all of the festivities and parties, but were there situations where you or someone else may have had a little too much to drink and should have handed over their keys? Maybe it was hard to say or difficult to convince someone that it wasn't a good idea to get behind the wheel.


I received the neatest product for review from BACtrack...the Vio Smartphone Breathalyzer. This little device fits conveniently inside a purse or can be used as a key chain so there it's always easily accessible. It instantly transforms your smartphone into a breathalyzer and quickly estimates your blood alcohol level content, tracks your BAC results over time and with Zero-Line estimates when your BAC will return to 0.00% again. Better safe than sorry is what I always say!

"Lose Weight Without Dieting" ~ Android App #health #fitness

Links to this post
Losing weight is a struggle for some of us and just the thought of having to diet is not something I want to face. Counting calories and figuring out which foods are good and which foods need to be cut out of my meal plan is almost exhausting.


Thank goodness that I found this amazing Android App that basically does all of this for me! It's called "Lose Weight Without Dieting" and it's a super easy to use calorie counter that provides me with a fun and comfortable way to lose weight. All I need to do is record my meals in the app and it tells me whether or not my meal was healthy. Awesome! It even goes a step further by calculating the calories, proteins, fats and carbs for me! I love that because I'm a busy parent, like I'm sure most of your are and I don't have time to figure all of this stuff out on a daily basis which is the reason that I've given up on so many past dieting efforts.
