I Just Felt Like Running…

Color Me Rad 5K in Chattanooga

Contrary to the title, this post isn't about Forrest Gump (I hope you got the connection, though!). It is, in fact about running - well, participating in running events. I just did my first 5K at the end of March. I decided to make my inaugural event exciting and fun with the Color Me Rad 5K in Chattanooga, TN. Despite the rain and my lack of adequate training prior to the race, I had a … [Read more...]

Become a Toxin Freedom Fighter for a Safer Environment #FightToxins

Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating Since expanding our family, James and I have become more aware of the need for safe products in our home.

3-Step Skincare with Olay Regenerist Luminous

Olay Regenerist Skincare

A couple weeks ago, I shared with you some new Olay products that are now available for sale at Walmart.

Not to mention, sometimes what I shave my underarms dry out - not … [Read more...]

Eat your Favorite Foods without Worry

Let's face it, gas and bloating happen every now and then. There's probably a food or two that can really mess with your digestion, causing you to feel uncomfortable a short time after eating it.

It’s Time to Stop Sabotaging Myself…

Determination Quote

Here we are, the middle of March, and I have yet to really focus on my 2014 goals of getting healthier. I keep trying to begin, but life gets in the way and I easily allow it to knock me off track. As member of a pretty cool team of influencers, the #VZWBuzz Team, I received a Jawbone UP from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided nor did I promise a positive review. This story of … [Read more...]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of VSP Direct. Is anyone else as ready for Spring as I am?
