Today we would like to take a moment to celebrate and honor the life of Evelyn Lauder, creator of the pink ribbon campaign for breast cancer awareness, and daughter-in-law of Estee Lauder. The pink ribbon campaign has brought a tremendous amount of awareness about breast cancer and raised millions of dollars for research. Evelyn Lauder was a pioneer who contributed to the fight against this disease. She died on Saturday at her home in New York of nongenetic ovarian cancer. She was 75 years old.
Mommies, always make time for your mammograms, self-exams, and wellness checks.
Sometimes we get a little lazy and laid back with our beauty routine in the winter…especially when it comes to the feet. I mean seriously…who’s going to see your feet anyway right?!? Wrong! Winter is not the time to neglect your feet. Here’s a great gift we found at Nordstrom that your feet are sure to love: the AHAVA Foot Indulgence Set. Best part….it only costs $29!!! 🙂 The set comes with Mineral Foot Cream for rough, dry feet, 100% Dead Sea Bath Crystals to sooth skin, and Deluxe Warming Socks. We love!!! Great gift idea!
I don’t have to tell you how devastating the HIV/AIDS epidemic is to families across the world. Millions of lives are affected daily. Today is a GREAT day to make a decision to do something that will have a lasting IMPACT! Support HIV/AIDS awareness, volunteer at a clinic, donate money, give love to a child suffering from the disease, start an organization or support group. Do something! I’m not just challenging you….I’m challenging myself as well.
I love shopping for new beauty products! Whether it’s new makeup, nail polish, facial cream, or deodorant, I love trying new things in hopes of finding something great to share with you! In my latest quest, I decided to try St. Ives Restoring 24 hour Moisture lotion. The verdict: LOVE IT!!!! Works very well, lasts all day, and keeps the skin feeling smooth and silky. I love it so much that I also purchased 3 different kinds of St. Ives face washes during my next trip to the store. For years my mom has used St. Ives products, while I opted for so many others. I guess this is yet another situation where I’m becoming more like my mother! Scary!!! 🙂
Every morning I arrive to work about an hour early. So the first thing I do before getting my work started is walk the sales floor to see what’s new, what’s on sale, and what’s a cool new product I can try! During today’s morning walk, here’s what I found and I’m already a fan. Doctor T’s Supergoop.
Green tea and vitamin E reduce irritation and redness and combat free-radical damage.
Helps to prevent signs of aging. (we LOVE that!)
No greasy feeling.
Of course I tried a tester wipe and I loved it! So easy to apply. The travel size comes with 8 wipes so you can stick them in your purse and you use them when you need to. Nice to have when you and the kiddos are unexpectedly in the sun for an extended period of time. And best of all…..the travel pack is only $10!!!!! Betcha didn’t know Nordstrom carried ANYTHING that costs only $10! 🙂 (30 count wipes – $34)
Ok…we get it! We need a gazillion gallons of water per day to be healthy. Many of us have accepted this to be true and make a conscious effort to consume our daily doses of H2O. *thumbs up* But if you’re buying bottled water regularly you are contributing to a separate issue – tons of plastic waste!
Instead of buying bottled water, consider investing in a reusable bottle like the one we found on UncommonGoods.com. It’s called the Filtered Water Bobble. Designed by Karim Rashid, this sleek bottle is made with recycled plastic. We love the look! We think it’s cool. It kind of looks like a chic baby bottle. 🙂 All you have to do is fill it up with tap water and the built-in filter takes out the stuff we don’t want. The filter is good for approximately 300 uses!! That’s 40 gallons of water. And best of all the Filtered Water Bobble is cheap! You can have one for only $10!!! (Replacement filters are $7.) This is great to have while you’re working out and tightening up those loose areas….as I know you ALL are! After all….it’s pool/beach season right?!? 🙂
