Thank you M Booth

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Are you ready for some foooootttbaaaallllll? I admit, I know nothing about football no matter how many times my dad has explained the rules to me, but I will never turn down any festivity that calls for a cocktail. 

Treat your guests to more than just pigs in a blanket this year for Super Bowl Sunday with these game-day libations.

#NoticeTheLotus with derma e

Anyone who has went in Target and actually stuck to their shopping list is either lying or has an insane amount of willpower. This month I'll be shopping for new year spruces - like bedding, a blender, and of course derma e.

You guys already know about the healthy properties in derma e products from my last review, so it's a no brainer that I'm gonna stop in for the new natural and affordable eye cream. #NOTICETHELOTUS at Target this week and discover the derma e® approach to modern skincare.

The Firming DMAE Eye Lift visibly lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area while smoothing crow’s feet with this doctor-developed, multi-action eye treatment crème that contains advanced, clinically proven natural ingredients. DMAE, a widely-acclaimed skin-firming nutrient, is clinically proven to boost collagen for firmer, more resilient skin. InstaLift® Goji Berry glycopeptides add further firming, lifting and tightening antioxidant power. Hyaluronic Acid, also known as nature's moisture magnet, infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture helping leave skin soft, smooth, tone and rehydrated. With continued use, this pro-collagen and pro-elastin blend leaves the delicate eye area firmer, smoother and younger-looking.

Although I'm young(er) than some, anti-aging and dark circles should be treating at the first signs. I've been using it for over a week and I can already see a visible difference.

Don't believe me, just watch.

Try something new this year and #NOTICETHELOTUS at Target – derma e has arrived!

The Most Valuable Product Hidden in My Purse

If you're a smoker - cigarettes, cigars, or ganja - you know that the habit also comes with an odor. My significant other and I frequent cigar shops. While it's a place of relaxation, I always end up loathing the funky after-smell after we leave. To combat the problem, I've been throwing Squelch spray in my bag.  

Why this product is great: 
Fragrance free
All natural and non-toxic
Does not stain or fade fabrics
Portable and convenient to carry and store
Environmentally friendly
Can be used to remove stains

When to "Squelch It":
It comes in a small bottle - perfect for your purse, gym bag or desk drawer
Great to use after your lunch break workout class
Safe to spray on your hair and clothes to get rid of that smoke smell from the bar
Freshen up your apartment before a cocktail party
Use on the musty winter wardrobe you just pulled out from under the bed
Spruce up that new vintage store find
Clean up your furry friend
