Burt’s Bees Keeps Amazing Us


With the cold weather firmly settling in on the New England area, my family always keeps Burt’s Lip Balm in ample supply Each one of my three children is an avid user of their lip-balm, claiming that it lasts longer than any other lip balm on the market.  I can be added to that list also. Burt’s Bees lip […]

Bye Bye Dry Hands!


  Washing hands after practically everything we do seems to be the way of the world these days. We wash our hands after using the bathroom, after sneezing, before shaking hands, after shaking hands, before we go to bed, when we get out of bed…..and the list goes on and on. And, with the repeated […]

Nice Warm Socks Without Gadgets


One thing that bothers me more than anything else when I am outside in the cold is for my feet to get cold. My face, hands, body and even my head can get frigid cold but when my feet get cold, I am done. Back to the house to put on another pair of socks […]

Beautiful skin without a Spa!


Just about everyone want to have beautiful skin. There are a multitude of skin care products to help us achieve that desire and then there are spas, salons and facial centers to help with the process. I would love to be able to visit a spa every day, but it would cost a fortune, so […]

That Special Gift in a Jiffee… I mean YIFTEE


Modern electronics offer all sorts of conveniences to our fingertips.  It seems that every time I turn around there is something newer and more innovative that has been produced that will make our lives easier.  Technology is here to stay, so I make the best of it. With the holidays almost here, I purchase most of my Christmas gifts […]

Enjoying a Bed of Nails?


  People lead pretty hectic lives these days.  Careers, raising a family, appointments, sports, visiting relatives, the gym….pretty much everything eats into what small amount of spare time they have.  Just looking at the list of things that people do these days is enough to make me get stressed out!  I can only imagine how they feel.  Leading such […]

A wrap that is more than…….just a wrap!


I absolutely love it when it starts to get cool outside.  When the leaves gently fall from the trees and there’s a definite chill in the air.  For some, the cooler months of the year aren’t very comfortable to them but for me, it’s the best time of year.  However, one thing I don’t like […]

Snoozing is great with my snoozies!


When I travel I always make sure that I bring along a pair of lightweight slippers or slipper socks.  It’s nice to be able to keep my feet warm, have an option to those business pumps (or hiking boots as the case may be), and not worry about the precious space it takes in my too-tightly-packed luggage.  I […]

Music on the Run


Exercising, particularly on long walks through the neighborhood or (shudder) on a treadmill goes a whole lot smoother when we listen to our favorite music.  Modern cell phones and MP3 players make it easy, but the constant movement, a shortage of pockets, and entangling cords make music on the run a bit complicated.   Even when we’re not […]

A Wedding Gift that will be Remembered for Years


Weddings are beautiful.  I have to say that there has not been a wedding that I have attended that hasn’t been beautiful.  Maybe a little extravagant at times, but definitely beautiful. I love the ceremony, the flowers, the music, the food, and the cake just about everything and anything that is involved in a wedding.  But, there […]
