If it is possible to be 'in love' with a skin care brand, then I am head over heels with Dr.Brandt Skincare! About a month ago, I was given the opportunity to review some of the best skincare products I have ever tried! My skin has been extremely dry with the colder weather, and I thought it was because I was finally starting to look old! Thankfully, Dr, Brandt Skincare products saved my skin, just like a handsome Prince rescues a Princess, and made me look young again!
Okay, that might sound like a silly comparison, but I truly do feel like a beautiful, and I might add, "young" princess after using these miracle products. Here is a look at a few of my newest favorite products from Dr. Brandt – Radiance Resurfacing Foam, Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask, and Neck Sculpting Cream.
Radiance Resurfacing Foam
A cream-to-foam packed with alpha hydroxy acids and paired with a no-blade tool that, together, lift away dead skin cells to reveal a fresh, radiant, super-hydrated complexion. You simply apply the cream to your entire face, and then you use the no-blade tool, and glide in an upward motion with gentle pressure to lift away the layer of foam. You then rub the remaining cream into your skin.
Neck Sculpting Cream
Neck Sculpting Cream is a neck rejuvenation formula and application process that combines a luxurious cream with traditional Gua Sha technique from Eastern Chinese Medicine. Massaged into skin with the rose quartz tool, it leaves the neck and jaw area looking more toned, sculpted and smooth while increasing the feeling of firmness. Additionally, the product targets “tech neck”, which are the lines below the neck caused by constantly looking down at one’s electronic devices. With continued use, the results are dramatic: enjoy significantly reduced appearance of volume under the chin for a more sculpted looking neck and jawline that appears more youthful and rejuvenated.
Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask
A deeply hydrating recovery sleeping mask that balances skin’s naturally-occurring flora and locks in moisture overnight to hydrate, reduce redness, and soothe signs of irritation. This leave-on mask works through the night to reduce redness and signs of irritation while restoring hydration to dry skin in 24 hours. Skin wakes up with a natural glow, looking and feeling refresh, soothed, nourished, and hydrated
Here are the results, and I am loving them!
No matter how many bras you already own, there's a new bra every woman needs to own. It's comfortable enough to sleep in and it gets rid of wrinkles at the same time! Introducing Bravity -- an anti-wrinkle, no-cup bra that stops the formation of creases and wrinkles in the chest area and smooths out existing wrinkles.
Bravity has Y-shaped padded straps that go in between the breasts leaving them exposed to allow the natural lymphatic cleaning process to occur. Bravity smooths and supports the chest area while you sleep. Made of nylon and spandex so it’s soft and cool to the touch. Adjustable straps for the perfect fit.
Cleavage creases are caused by the upper breast shifting over the lower breast, creating pressure on the skin. As the skin ages and becomes less elastic, the creases get bigger and deeper affecting women of all shapes and sizes. Wear Bravity to bed at night and watch the wrinkles disappear!
I love my Bravity bras. I received two of them to review. They truly are comfortable to sleep in. I also enjoy wearing them in the day time, because they actually lift my breasts and make them look perkier! Below, I am wearing the Bravity sport bra, which is wonderful for exercising. It keeps chest wrinkles and creases at bay, even when I am working out!
It's funny, because even though these bras were not designed to be sexy lingerie, I walked past my husband wearing one, and my husband definitely turned to look as I walked by him. (He was even playing video games, and I actually caught his attention!) So I know that Bravity bras can be sexy as well as functional.
Weleda, the European skincare brand, announced that it is expanding its cult-favorite Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream to include three new formulas.
For almost a century, Weleda's Skin Food has been feeding our bodies with plant extracts that work in rhythm with the skin to allow one's inner beauty to shine through. The ultra-rich, multipurpose formula derived from farms that follow sustainable principles delivers soft, supple, deeply hydrated skin. Skin Food's nourishing ingredients satisfy skin with nutrients that help unlock a healthy-looking glow. Skin Food has developed a cult following for its plant-rich formulation becoming a must-have item in makeup artist's kits and celebrity homes alike.
The new Skin Food Experience, which includes a product for lips, a body butter and a lighter version of the original, will feature formulas created to help nourish and soothe the skin. Comprised of nutrient-rich lead plants, including rosemary, chamomile, pansy and calendula, the new blends are rooted in different base formulas of sunflower seed oil, lanolin, beeswax, and Shea Butter.
Rob Keen, CEO of Weleda N.A., says, "Skin Food has been a beloved product and a savior for dry skin since its launch in 1926. We are thrilled to bring all the benefits of Skin Food Original to more usage occasions so that fans and new consumers alike can enjoy a total Skin Food experience from head-to-toe."
The new Skin Food Experience formulas include:
Skin Food Light Nourishing Cream: A lighter version of the classic original, the cream formula quickly melts into skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. Delivering a dose of moisture, chamomile and calendula invigorate senses while a base of Sunflower Seed Oil and Shea Butter instantly nourish for a velvety smooth texture. Perfect to use every day and as a light option in warmer weather; suitable for use on face and body.
My skin has been insanely dry and flaky this winter. This light nourishing cream has completely saved my day a few times, when I would look in the mirror and almost cry because my skin was so flaky looking. I literally had facial dandruff! This light formula allowed me to apply it to my face, and it was deeply hydrating, yet not heavy or too greasy for my face. The flakes vanished upon application, and looks and feels very moisturized and healthy.
Skin Food Body Butter: The light whipped texture quickly absorbs into skin all over for a smooth, luxurious feeling. Perfect for any area that needs extra hydration, the rich base of Sunflower Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter leaves skin intensely hydrated and senses invigorated after a bath or shower.
I apply this amazingly hydrating body butter every evening after my shower, while my skin is still slightly damp. It seals the moisture into my skin and locks it there. It is very soothing, and makes my skin look very young and healthy. It smells very nice, too!
Skin Food Lip Butter: A vibrant blend of viola, chamomile, and calendula soothes and cares for lips while the oil-based formula nourishes. Great for cold weather conditions or when lips need extra TLC, the rich texture softens lips for a smooth finish. I keep a tube of this heavenly lip butter on my night stand, and apply it at night before bed. It keeps my lips velvety soft, and helps my lips to heal of any dryness as I sleep. I have not suffered any kind of chapped lips this winter because of this intense hydration. (I also keep lipstick on all day long, and that also helps.)
Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream: Intensely hydrating, the original formula combines plant extracts with a base of beeswax and sunflower and sweet almond oils to nourish skin. With extracts of rosemary, chamomile, and calendula, this plant-rich ingredient blend is renowned for its moisturizing and soothing effects. I love this extremely rich cream! I use it on my feet at night before bed, and then I put on socks, and my feet are very soft by morning. I use it as my hand cream during the day, and it protects them from the cold and the wind during the day. I also use it on my hands at night for a 'sleeping hand mask.' It deeply penetrates the skin on my hands and keeps them supple as I sleep, allowing the ingredients to work on replenishing and repairing the skin on my hands, which needs extra TLC, especially in the winter.
The Skin Food Experience is currently available on Weleda.com (https://www.weleda.com/skin-food-experience) and will be available at national retailers in early 2019.

Kids can quickly become bored and restless when cooped up inside on a rainy day. Rather than allowing them to climb the walls, you should encourage them to have a little fun within the home.
You’ll be glad to know there are many activities that can occupy your children when the weather takes a turn for the worst. Check out the six ways to entertain your kids on a rainy day.
1. Build a Fort
If your children want to escape the home but can’t go outside, allow them to create a brand-new environment by building a fort in their bedroom. Grab a blanket, cushions, and maybe even a large cardboard box and create a unique den where they can go to watch movies or play games.
2. Bake Together
Spending the day inside doesn’t need to be dull. All you need to do is find fun baking recipes, gather up your ingredients and create some delicious treats together in the kitchen. Your kids will love getting their hands sticky and decorating cookies and cakes, and they’ll forget all about playing in the outdoors.
3. Watch Fun YouTube Videos
The internet is filled with many videos your kids are bound to love. The hours will quickly pass by when watching a fun YouTube Channel, such as Shawn Toy Car. Plus, as they’re immersing themselves in a fun video, you can enjoy a little downtime or clean the home without disruption.
4. Create a Family Magazine
Grab some pencils and paper and encourage your kids to create a family magazine. They’ll not only need to decide on what stories to feature, but they’ll need to write the articles and draw pictures.
Maybe they could interview a grandparent over the phone for a story, or they could glue photos of the family into their first edition. They could even add in a fun puzzle or a joke. It’s a great way to occupy your child’s time while sparking their creativity.
5. Host an Indoor Picnic
The rain doesn’t have to stand in the way of a fun picnic. Pull out some blankets, set out dishes and fill the space with drinks, snacks, and napkins. You could even ask your kids to bring along their favorite toy as a guest, so you might need to set out a few extra plates!
6. Enjoy a Disco
Turn down the lights, push back the furniture, turn on the disco ball and dance the rainy day away. Every family member should pick five songs they love to add into a playlist, which you should put on shuffle before busting a move. You could even get everyone to try limbo dancing, the tango, or the can-can – and you can then hand out awards for the best and worst dancer.
As you can see, there are many ways to entertain your kids when the weather is a little miserable outside, from finding fun videos for them to watch alone on a tablet computer to enjoying a disco with all the family.
As 2018 comes to an end and 2019 prepares to make its grand entrance, many people are gearing up for a fresh start. You may be one of those people looking at how they can make this coming year one that’s memorable as well as better than preceding ones. There are different aspects of your life which can be improved, and each often requires different approaches. Nevertheless, if you’re looking to make changes and need a little advice on how to start, you’re going to find some below.
One area that most people are always looking to progress in is finances. It can seem like swimming against the tides for many people, but it is possible to get your finances in a healthy place whether you’re single and in debt or managing a family and spread thin. If you can afford it, consider hiring the services of an affordable finance professional as this could help fast track your financial progress.
When looking for a financial adviser, figure out what you need, check their qualifications, and ensure they’re capable of handling your requests.
Seeing as you can never tell when you’ll need legal advice, having a good solicitor somewhere close by is always a good idea. A good solicitor should help you solve any legal challenges and nip them in the bud before they escalate. Some key areas that they could help you in are purchasing or selling commercial property, getting a divorce, shareholder agreements in your business or even resolving construction disputes. If you look for solicitors in Aldershot, you should be able to find a reputable one that you can use for your varying needs.
In case you’re worried about the cost of one, you should know that prices aren’t always expensive!
Your health should be your number one priority in 2019, so if you don’t already have a good health professional, you should think about looking for one. You want to be sure that you’re in the best shape possible as no matter how many plans you make for 2019, without good health, they may never happen. Some qualities of a good health professional are someone who has excellent communication skills, takes a personal as opposed to a generic approach when caring for you, and is empathetic.
If you need extra help and support when it comes to improving your lifestyle, why not consult the services of a nutritionist? They can help you get to the root of any health issues that you may have, create an individualized plan, as well as improve your relationship with food. A good nutritionist can even teach you the skills you need to live a healthier lifestyle which is invaluable information.
If you’re looking to reach greater heights in your career, then it may be a good idea to get a career advisor in 2019. If you’re confused about which path to take or how to reach your highest potential in your chosen field, then they can help navigate you in the right direction. Another route to getting good career advice would be getting a mentor who you respect that can give you advice on what steps to take to get to your destination.
You are raising children in a world that is constantly developing. For this reason, there is nothing you can do to shield your kids from change, as it will impact them sooner rather than later in their young lives. There are, however, ways to protect them during such a tumultuous time and there are things you can do to help them deal with it.
To see what you need to do to help your children deal with all the instances of change that come their way, check out the advice below.
Give advanced warning whenever possible
Sometimes, you’ll have the luxury of being able to warn your children about an impending change before it befalls them. When you are provided with such a chance, take it. Warning your child about what changes are about to occur is the best thing you can do as it will give them a chance to ready themselves in their own way and time.
The warning you give need not be too detailed, but it should be age-appropriate. A terminal illness in the family, for instance, should be described with the utmost sensitivity. You should warn them about what is about to happen and that somebody will soon not be around anymore, but you shouldn’t go into detail about the illness itself.
Try to make them feel as if they are in control
Change can really scare children due to the way it makes them feel powerless. It is for this reason why you should seek to make your children feel like they are in control of their destiny. If you need to move home in order to be closer to your new office, for instance, you should ask your children things like ‘will you help us pick a new house?’ and ‘will you help us to decorate your bedroom?’ Simple things like this will make your child feel more in control of their change than they actually are.
Protect them from the particularly difficult parts
Some changes, like a change to their diet, will be more of an inconvenience to your child rather than a problem. Some changes, however, will prove to be more difficult. It is the particularly difficult parts that you should seek to protect your child against, as they are the aspects of change that could scar them for life. If you and their other parent seek to divorce, for example, then you should do all of your dealing and arguing as far away from the kids as possible. You should also enlist the help of London divorce lawyers that specialize in family law to ensure you go through the settlement in the right way. Anything less and you will make the situation harder for the kids.
Be the change be something big like a new sibling, a death in the family, a divorce, a home move, or a school move. Or be it something small, like a change to the morning routine, a new pair of shoes, or a new diet. Whatever change befalls your child, just be sure to help them deal with it. By not doing so, you could do more damage than you first realize.
Home moves are routinely described as being one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through in life, and for good reason. What with the anxiety of passing such a big milestone combined with the hassle of making sure everything goes off without a hitch, it’s easy to see why moving home gets such a bad rap.
The whole experience doesn’t have to be as stressful as it’s made out to be, though. If you’ve got a home move coming up, you don’t necessarily have to fear what is in store for you. There are ways to take the stress out of moving home, four of which can be found below.
1. Work alongside a conveyancing solicitor
If you truly want your home move to be as stress-free an experience as can be, then you need to align yourself with a professional residential conveyancing solicitor. By doing so, you’ll share and lighten your load, meaning you’ll have less to stress about and more time to devote elsewhere. A typical conveyancing service will cover:
If you have to deal with any of these factors with regards to your home move explicitly, especially, then you should make sure to work alongside a conveyancing solicitor.
2. Itemize as much as you can
Itemizing is the act of presenting a list of all of your individual items, and it’s something you should be doing if you want your home move to go off without a hitch. It’s true, from the larger items you own right down to your small worldly belongings, everything should be individually listed. Doing so will make your move so much easier, especially when it comes to unpacking your goods into the correct rooms and areas when you reach your new abode.
3. Clearly mark out zones designated for rubbish
During the packing process, you will come across many items that you do not need anymore and, thus, want to throw out. To avoid accidentally getting rid of something you actually want, you should clearly mark out the zones that are designated for rubbish. Doing this and keeping your trash clearly separated from what you want to bring to your new home will stop you muddling everything together. If that were to happen, you’d face added headaches further on down the line as you seek to retrieve whatever you’ve accidentally thrown out.
4. Get your removal situation sorted well in advance
You’ll have enough to deal with on your moving day without having to organize how you’re going to move everything you own from point A to point B. For this reason, getting your removal situation sorted as well in advance as you can is a must. This could mean booking a removal company, or this could mean ensuring that whoever you have enlisted to help you turns up on the day — whatever route you take, just make everything is booked and planned before the big day.
Have you made your new year's resolutions yet? One of my New Year's Resolution for 2019 is to take better care of my health! As a woman, there are certain things we can do to ensure that we are taking the best care that we can of our unique bodies. I am now in my forties, and I would like to make sure that I am doing everything I can for my health. I am learning about supplements that are made especially for women. Serenol, Relizen and Reveree can help with some of the issues that women deal with on a daily and/or monthly basis.
Featured on Good Morning America, these supplements are non-hormonal, and during vigorously tested clinical trials, shown to be as safe as a sugar pill, but effective!
Below is some information on these supplements that make being a woman a bit easier.
Do you suffer from monthly PMS symptoms? I definitely do and I always have. I get extremely moody, and I tend to crave sugar. I definitely eat more than normal, and my stomach gets bloated. I had never tried a supplement for PMS relief until I discovered Serenol.
Serenol is a unique product specifically formulated to improve PMS symptoms, including: mood swings, bloating, cravings, overeating and sleeping problems.
Serenol is a non-prescription therapy that contains three main ingredients that specifically address bothersome symptoms of PMS; Swedish pollen extract, Chromax® Chromium Picolinate and Royal Jelly.
Swedish pollen extract and Chromax® Chromium Picolinate are well studied and safely used in women, with side effects no different from a sugar pill. One of the main ingredients in Serenol, a proprietary blend of Swedish pollen extract, has been used safely by over 1 million women in Europe, where it has been used by gynecologists for more than 15 years. (Serenol is not a hormone.)
Royal jelly is a substance naturally created by honeybees. Women who are allergic to bees or bee products should not take Serenol. Royal jelly may act as a phytoestrogen.
I have been taking Serenol for about a month now, and when my last period came, I was actually very surprised because I had zero PMS symptoms! I did not even get my usual cramps this last month! I simply take two tablets every day, and let Serenol work its magic.
And for women who suffer from hot flashes (thankfully, I am not quite there yet) there is Relizen.
Relizen is a plant-based, oral menopause supplement that is made from a unique blend of highly purified flower pollen extracts. Relizen provides a safe, effective, non-hormonal treatment for symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, tiredness, mood swings and irritability. The active ingredients in Relizen are made from a unique proprietary blend of highly purified flower pollen extract.
The plant-based ingredients that make up the extract are naturally grown in the fields of Sweden, where they are meticulously cultivated and harvested without the use of pesticides or harsh chemicals. The ingredients used in Relizen are chosen specifically for the benefit they provide to women suffering from menopausal symptoms.
There is no need to alter your hormone levels to get your hot flashes and night sweats under control. To date, over 1 million women worldwide have used a formulation of Relizen as a safe, effective, plant-based treatment for their menopausal symptoms.
Like other solutions for good health, Relizen can take some time to work. Studies show that Relizen can work as early as month 2, but the best results come starting at month 3, when compared to a sugar pill. This suggests that Relizen builds up in your body, becoming more effective over time. Relizen is also backed by clinical research that shows the product is more effective the longer you stay on it.
For a problem that many women have and nobody wants to face, there is Revaree. Revaree is designed to relieve vaginal dryness without unnecessary hormones. Made of hyaluronic acid, a moisture-binding molecule naturally found in your body, Revaree safely rejuvenates and moisturizes vaginal tissue, providing lasting, hormone-free relief in an easy-to-use, mess-free vaginal insert.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
Vaginal dryness is caused by fluctuating estrogen levels that are often triggered by menopause, post-childbirth, or because of certain medications. This fluctuation in estrogen can cause vaginal tissue to become thin, dry and less elastic, which can lead to additional irritating symptoms such as itching, burning, or pain during sex.
Vaginal dryness can affect women of any age but occurs most frequently at the onset of menopause.
It’s important to realize that other disruptive menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes or night sweats, will dissipate over time, however, vaginal dryness tends to worsen if left untreated, due to a persistent and prolonged lack of estrogen.
For best results, Revaree should be used – every 2-3 days – for real and lasting relief!
Until Revaree, vaginal dryness treatments were limited to hormone replacement therapies, which are accompanied by certain risks and inconvenience, or lubricants and creams, which are messy, drippy and only provide a short-term reprieve.
I cannot believe another year has passed! I always love my Degusta Box because there is always something fun, delicious and tasty to look forward to each month, and the subscription price is way less than the value of the box and all of the goodies in it!
I almost ran out of time to review my December Degusta Box because of the insanely busy holidays, but thankfully, I did get around to it. The theme this month was Winter Comforts, and there were plenty of comfort foods and snacks to get me through some stressful days of getting my holiday shopping done!
I must make note that I did not get original pictures of each item in this month's box due to the fact that my husband grabbed some of the goodies on his way out the door to work before I got the chance to photograph them all! Who can blame him?
Campfire Mini Marshmallows
I got two packages of Campfire Mini Marshmallows: a giant 1-pound bag of original minis for baking, and a smaller 1-ounce bag of fruit flavored minis. The bag of original marshmallow minis ended up being a life-saver on Christmas Eve, when my mom called and asked if we happened to have any to top off the yams! Have you ever had homemade yams with melted marshmallows on top? It is pretty heavenly. As for the fruit flavored ones, I remember eating them and liking them when I was little, but I don't think I have had them since I was little. Both varieties are gluten free & fat-free and the original version contains no artificial coloring.
Bahlsen Iced Cinnamon Stars
Who doesn't love Christmas cookies? These were quite irresistible to my husband who grabbed them on his way out the door for work. I didn't even get to taste them, but they looked so good! These cute little star-shaped cookies make for a festive party treat. They’re flavored with hazelnuts & cinnamon and are coated in a smooth white icing. So pretty!
Garden of Life Maple Sea Salt GOL Bar
Gol Bar is an organic protein bar made with whole foods including dates, cashew butter, milk protein concentrate, pecans, and maple flavor. It’s packed with 13 grams of fiber, 12 grams of protein, and 25% of the recommended daily value of calcium. Good thing my husband doesn't like health food bars! I got this delicious Gol Bar all to my self! I loved every bite, and will definitely buy these.
Chimes Original Ginger Chews
I love ginger chews! The Chimes ginger chews were the best I have ever had! I think they are addictive, because I ate the entire package in one sitting. I don't usually pig out like that, but I knew that no one else in my family would have even remotely liked them. I have very picky family members, and that often works to my advantage! These chews have a great, spicy kick of real ginger. They are great for nausea/ and even morning sickness, which would have been great during my own pregnancies (were ginger chews even invented 12 years ago? I had never even heard of them until recently.) They’re also gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and non-GMO.
Vahdam Tea Sampler
Vahdam Teas sampler contained 5 different varieties of teas to sample: Organic Himalayan, Chamomile Mint Citrus, India’s Original Chai Tea, arjeeling Summer, and Turmeric Spiced. I personally do not drink tea, but my daughter-in-law loves it, so I gifted this tea sampler to her for Christmas.
G.H. Cretors The Mix Popped Corn
“The Mix” is a sweet & salty combination of rich, buttery caramel corn and premium aged cheddar cheese corn. It’s made with non-GMO popcorn, real cheddar cheese, and other all natural ingredients. Two 1.5-ounce bags were included.
Of course I love this delicious combination of sweet and salty, so I ate both bags myself. I did not feel the least bit guilty, however because the bags were small, and hey, it is popcorn!
SunSpire's Dark Chocolate SunDrops®
SunSpire's Dark Chocolate SunDrops® are a delicious wholesome alternative to your typical candy coated chocolate.
Dark Chocolate SunDrops® offer the great candy taste you love with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
The smooth dark chocolate centers are perfect for those looking for a more rich chocolate candy experience, while the
bright pastel colors add some fun to your baking and snacking endeavors!
I did not have a clue that these candies were any different that M&Ms until I ate quite a few, and then read the package. I did not feel any guilt for eating half of the package!
Hu Chocolate, the cult-favorite vegan and paleo chocolate bar, made with "No Weird Ingredients. Ever" is free from dairy, palm oils, emulsifiers, soy lecithin, gluten, refined sugar, cane sugar and sugar alcohols. Hu is inspired by quality food's ability to heal versus poor quality food's guarantee to hinder. Hu's mission is to help people get back to eating, living, and thriving like humans.
I don't really enjoy dark chocolate, but even so, this chocolate bar was delicious! I think dark chocolate lovers are in for a huge treat with the Hu Chocolate bar.
