Let’s Talk – BBC and KISS!

Posted by:

Nope, not referring to the British Broadcasting Corporation. Try this one on – “Before Breast Cancer!” Let’s get serious about PREVENTION!

Okay, we’re all seeing it –“Breast Cancer Awareness” month. Awareness is a good thing, but as a breast cancer survivor it bothers me that PREVENTION isn’t at the top of the list. Research and shopping to support research for a cure is a noble idea but how can we personally empower ourselves to minimize getting a breast cancer diagnosis to ...

This Balm is the Bomb!

Posted by:

I finally found it! An amazing four-in-one skin care facial product that cleanses, removes make-up exquisitely, moisturizes and can be used as a mask as well. And let me not forget that there are no hidden toxic chemicals either. You may ask “Where can I get this incredible product and tell me more!” Billed as a “Best Seller,” this cleansing balm is heaven on my face!! While we love our Colorado climate, it’s dry and really dry during the winter. ...

Cosmetic Facelifts with Acupuncture, You Say?

Posted by:

“Botox is so passé. Cosmetic acupuncture is where it’s at,” says a woman interviewed three years ago in the Daily Mail. What? Apparently it’s the latest weapon in anti-aging with several A-list stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth and Angelina. Like them or not, these women look great.  This growing movement is the result of women being afraid of fillers and Botox, according

to facial acupuncturist, Samara Reid, who’s been in the business for 20 years. This non-painful, non-toxic technique takes roughly ...

The Allure of Botox

Posted by:

Botox, dubbed as “the little neurotoxin that could,” by USA Today. It’s a household name now, isn’t it? Have you tried it? Is it safe? Several friends I know use it to calm forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and lines around the face. I have to admit they look dang good! I’ve been offered the opportunity to try it. Most of you know I’m about living naturally and cleanly. I am not a fan of putting foreign substances, especially known toxins, ...

Body-Licious!

Posted by:

Body pampering and scrubs are the best at-home treats I love to give myself year-round, especially during the holidays and during the dry winter months.

You will be thought of and thanked every time they step in the shower! Give yourself the gift of glowing, body-licious, beautiful ...

Musings on Spring Delights!

Posted by:

When the leaves burst forth and I can enjoy tulips on our breakfast table for next to nothing in cost, I am ready for SPRING! I cherish colors in the garden and eagerly await our first farmer’s market opening (we live in Colorado so we don’t get to enjoy the year round markets of other states). I’m a sucker for new cookbooks bursting with visuals that get my mouth watering. I’m ready for new adventures outside that take me out ...

Non Toxic Insect Repellents to the Rescue!

Posted by:

Caroline, this one’s for you! Summertime and the living is easy, except when the flies, gnats and mosquitoes join the party. I can’t tell you how many toxic sprays and creams I covered myself with many years ago without knowing the chemical dangers. The most well-known chemical in insect repellents is DEET. Did you know that it melts plastic and fishing line? Of course it’s effective and insects are smart enough to stay away, but do we want to be ...

Sunscreens: UVA, UVB, SPF – What do they all mean?

Posted by:

I am of the baby boomer generation that didn’t use sunscreen growing up. The “in” thing was slathering baby oil all over our bodies to enhance the tanning effects of the sun. I’ll spare you the details of my sun-spotted arms and hands, but I certainly wish I knew then what I know now!

When my kids came along, I thought I was being a diligent parent when it came to applying sunscreen. However, little did I know that those sunscreens, ...

Skin-tastic Coconut Oil!

Posted by:

Puxatawney Phil saw his shadow on February 2nd which means six more weeks of winter. Skiers, snowboarders, snowshoe enthusiasts, and ice climbers are thrilled. Those not so thrilled — those people NOT in the above populations and those slipping, chipping and digging out from the mounds of snow in the Boston area. Many parts of the United States are experiencing unusually cold temperatures this winter and lots of people are just plain “over it.” Whether you’re enjoying the winter months ...
