New Year, New Resolution!

Well guys, 2016 is FINALLY over and good freaking riddance!

I don’t normally like to write off an entire year as “bad” because it’s never exactly accurate. But wow was 2016 as bad as it has gotten in many years! Not just for me, but for many of my friends, families, the world, and hell, even celebrities! There have been constant bad news and to rise above it was more than difficult at times.

Almond Milk – and Why You Should Make the Switch

For years, I’ve been hearing about the almond milk phenomena and quietly ignoring it and going about my ways. Often even thinking, “oh people are so dramatic/snobs… just drink milk. sheesh” I know…how terrible of me. Of course, those who are lactose intolerant are an exception, but why does every other person have to rave about the damn thing? its just milk!

Until a few months ago…when for reasons that are blurry right now, I went and bought almond milk. What’s the big deal… does it even taste good? Isn’t it so expensive? I’m perfectly happy with my 1%.

Daily Recommendation: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector

July 15: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector

I’ve  been using the Curad cast and bandage protector on my foot cast to take showers and I can’t even begin to tell you how easy and effective it is! It’s basically a slip on and it stays tight at your calf/knee – whichever part of your leg you decide to pull it up to. I was apprehensive if it was going to keep my cast COMPLETELY dry, especially for the duration of the entire shower, but to my pleasant surprise, it did! Not once, not twice but every single time. They are slip resistant and reusable, so one pack (of 2) will last you several weeks (I intend to use mine for the entire duration of my cast wearing days, 6 weeks.)  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector”

I never do a daily recommendation without having tried the product out for myself. But like all rules, there are exceptions. And while I have not tried out this 15 minute exercise pattern in the order in which suggested, I am done every single one of those exercises and I know they WORK! So, while I give this workout a try every day, I thought I would share it with you so you could do it with me too!  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: 15 Minute Workout”

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you know that earlier this week I finally bought a pair of Yoga Toes to help with my Plantar Fasciitis and as promised, I’m here with a review. Since this is under “daily recommendation”, you may have already guessed that I am loving this product and you are correct!

June 2: Essence of Ojo Native American Flute Music CD

Listening to sounds of nature is an effective stress reliever. Something about human beings and nature just go hand in hand, imagine that. I love listening to soothing music to relax my mind so when I walked into the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa in New Mexico, and heard the background music, I immediately knew I needed to own it.

Daily Recommendation: Get Rid of Negative People

June 1: Get Rid of Negative People

Happy June, Everyone!

It’s the start of a new month, yesterday, I told you all about the power of positivity. Today, I thought I would elaborate on one way to do that, by getting rid of negative people around you. I think it is by far one of the most effective and difficult things to do. We are surrounded by an array of people on a daily basis, family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, even random strangers. It’s impossible to ensure that they are ALL having a positive impact on you. Obviously, the more people we encounter, the higher our chances are of being surrounded by negative people. Realism must be taken into account when approaching this subject. I’m not suggesting cutting people out of your life, point blank (although there are situations where this is not only doable but an absolute must). But, for the times that is not a viable solution, what can you do?

Daily Recommendation: Abreva

May 29/30: Abreva

I rarely get cold sores, but when I do, it is one of the ugliest things to visually see and physically feel. I used to do household remedies like treating it with toothpaste overnight, to dry. Not the most effective tool but desperate times call for desperate measure. That is until I discovered Abreva, thanks to a doctor friend of mine. Abreva has been around for ages, so it’s certainly not a new discovery. Having said that, a lot of people I know don’t use Abreva when they have a cold sore. So, I thought I would bring some light to it.
