Michael Todd Sonic Eraser Pro Review

I received product for being a Michael Todd ambassador.  As always, all enthusiasm is my own. My beauty arsenal is full of a range of products in all price ranges.  I have some splurges and some drugstore steals.  One thing I always splurge on though is my skin care.  As I'm in my 30s, I think it's important to use higher quality products for their anti-aging benefits.  When I'm applying my serums and creams, it kills me to think about how much is wasted by getting absorbed into my fingertips and not my face.  Enter the Michael Todd Sonic Eraser Pro .  This revolutionary device helps you apply your skin care products to your face for maximum absorption.  Keep reading for my Michael Todd Sonic Eraser Pro review. Michael Todd Sonic Eraser Pro Review The Sonic Eraser Pro uses Triplex InfusionTM, which is a 3-in-1 technology to get your favorite creams and serums deeper into your skin.  When you apply your products with your fingertips, they reach the outer lay

19th Century Beauty Standards + A Diamond Giveaway

Do you ever stop to think about how thankful you were born when you were and not before that?  I'm going to be honest with you all.  I'd have never made it in the 1800s.  Not in America, not in London, not anywhere.  I really love the Internet, my iPhone, and my flat iron too much to have been happy in that time period.   FX Networks has a new show, Taboo , that's set in London in the 19th century.  My husband and I can't wait to the show to start.  In honor of the show, I'm going to share with you why I wouldn't want to live in the 19th century, specifically because of their somewhat unconventional — if not dangerous! — beauty ideas.

Best Beauty Products for 2017

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Remember last week when I posted my top 10 of 2016 and said I'd be taking a week off?  I spent the entire week in bed sick.  When I wanted some rest, that was not what I had in mind!  I didn't even get our of my pajamas on Christmas.  Thanks to Amazon Prime, my kids had plenty under the tree, and Santa came with the rest of the gifts.  On the bright side, it was a quiet holiday.   Now that 2017 is almost here, I'm excited for next year's new beauty products.  There are so many things on my list to try next year.  Here are the things I'm most excited to try.  If you've tried any of these, please let me know how you like them in the comments.

How to Heal Dry, Cracked Hands

This is a sponsored post written for Neutrogena. I was compensated and provided complimentary products for this post. All opinions are my own. Anyone who knows me knows that winter isn't my favorite season.  I love fall, summer, and spring, in that order.  Me and winter don't get along.  I think I was supposed to be born somewhere tropic, but instead I found myself in Ohio.  Although last year was a light winter, this winter is proving to be more brutal.  I don't like the shorter days, I don't like the cold, and I really don't like the dry skin.  In the winter, my skin gets so dry that it can start to crack and bleed if I'm not careful.  I have to use some seriously hydrating producing in the winter, so that's why I use  Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream .  Keep reading to learn how to heal dry, cracked hands.

Strawberry Watermelon Yogurt Pops Recipe

Eat a healthy snack with these strawberry watermelon pops.  They are made without refined sugar and have yogurt for extra protein. There are many benefits to summer.  Long days, not paying for heat, fresh veggies, and popsicles.  I'll admit that I like popsicles just as much as my kids do. Store bought popsicles are yummy, but they are full of dyes and sugar.  I have two picky eaters, so I need to make every bite count. I prefer to make my own pops because I can control the ingredients.  I usually use fresh fruit, but this is a great one to make if there's no fresh fruit available. Of course, you can always add fresh strawberries to these strawberry watermelon yogurt pops for more flavor and more texture in your frozen pops. STRAWBERRY WATERMELON YOGURT POPSICLES RECIPE Like I said, I have two picky eaters.  Many kids and adult on the spectrum are picky eaters. Neither of my boys eat meat save for chicken nuggets.  I'm pretty sure we will be ordering catered c

Fizzy, Relaxing Bath Salts Recipe

All opinions are mine alone. #MoreMomentsWithExcedrin #CollectiveBias I was diagnosed with migraines when I was a teenager.  I would get the type of migraines that left me in bed in a dark room for days at a time.  Those weren't fun as a high schooler and later a college student.  Thankfully, the migraines went away after I got pregnant with my first son and stayed away until after my youngest was born, but they came back with a vengeance a few years later.    This time, I was a little more prepared for dealing with a migraine.  My doctor recommended that I take Excedrin® Migraine at the first sign of a migraine because that's the key to preventing a full blown episode.  Luckily, I get an aura before one is about to start, so I can start treatment right away.  I've learned that the medication works better if I relax for a while after taking it.  As most moms know, relaxing with children

My Favorite Products for Holiday Parties

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Single Edition Media. 'Tis the season for parties.  This year, we have Christmas parties almost every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  I'll be honest with you.  This holiday season has been brutal for me with work and the kids' activities.  I was not looking forward to these parties because I haven't had much time to pamper myself this winter.  Thanks to BabbleBoxx, I now have everything that I need for some serious winter pampering to get ready to my parties.  With help from Chapstick, Katy Perry, Paul Mitchel, and Dr. Brandt, I'll be looking my best for the parties. ChapStick My lips get seriously dry in the winter because we have propane heat and wood heat.  Both suck the moisture right out of the air.  Even with a humidfier on the furnace, my lips get dry and cracked.  When they get dry, the only thing that helps is using a lip scrub and keeping them hydrated a few times a day.  ChapStick has
