#TBT My Favorite Holiday Memories

Me, my cousins and my great-grandfather at Christmas time (date unknown)

I know that the weather has barely gotten cooler (at least here in the Northeast) and the leaves are barely changing colors, but I can’t help but think about the upcoming holiday season.

This time of year (from now until the end of December) has always been my most favorite time of the year. I enjoy the cooler weather and I love the holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

The older I get, the more I seem to reflect on holidays over the years, going all the way back to my childhood days. Ah… to be a child again with not a worry or care in the world. Those were the good old days. Growing up, I always spent the holidays with my immediate family, as well as my extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents).

I miss having my great-grandparents come over for Christmas morning presents. After we opened our presents my great-grandparents would come over (they lived next door) and my mom would make a huge breakfast for everyone. Of course, as a kid I was more interested in my presents than having breakfast, but I still enjoyed the yummy food nonetheless.

I remember one holiday I spent with my aunt and uncle, as well as my extended family, in Pennsylvania. For some reason (I can’t remember why) I was wearing my cousin’s pajamas (a boy!). All I know is that there are plenty of photos of me wearing those pajamas. How embarrassing! LOL!

Me in my cousin’s pajamas with my great-grandfather.

I truly miss spending the holidays with my relatives. My grandparents and great-grandparents have passed away, as well aunts and uncles. My cousins all have busy lives and we barely see each other anymore – if ever. It’s so sad. It makes my heart hurt just thinking about it.

A not-so-good memory relating to the holidays is when my mom had a heart attack and was in the hospital during the Christmas holiday. I remember talking to her on the phone Christmas Eve. She let me open up one present while I was on the phone with her. It was the Ballerina Barbie that I really wanted that year. I still remember all of this as if it was yesterday. From that year onward, my mom let me open up one gift on Christmas Eve.

Other memories that seem as if they happened only yesterday include chasing Santa down as he rode down our street on the back of a firetruck handing out coloring books, crayons and candy canes. WOW… that was the highlight of my day!

Not far from where I lived, there was a plant nursery that used to have a magical Christmas Village during the holidays. You walked from room to room and looked at animated holiday displays. It was amazing! At the end of the “trail,” you walked into the souvenir shop (of course!) where my mom would let me pick out a new ornament for our Christmas tree. That tradition has carried on to this day. Each year we buy our kids a new ornament, just like my mom did for me. That way when my kids are ready to move out on their own they have plenty of ornaments to decorate their own trees, as well as the memories that went along with them.

Most of the ornaments on our tree are ones we gave our children each year and the ones my mom gave me each year growing up.

I could go on and on about how much I love the holidays. Times sure have changed.

When I look in the mirror now I don’t see the same fresh faced little girl I once was. I see a mature woman, slowly showing the signs of aging (as could be expected). Back then all I could think about was what Santa was going to bring me for Christmas. These days I just hope that no new wrinkles pop up on my face. LOL!

When I was younger I never gave skin care much of a thought. There were times I didn’t even wash the make-up off my face. I shudder every time I think about that. I didn’t even wear sunscreen or moisturizer.

These days I am more conscious of what I use on my skin. I want to use only products that will not only help improve my skin, but also help prevent it from showing the signs of aging.

The holidays are when we want to look our best, especially if you are in your 50’s (or close to it).

So, I’ve been using a new product as part of my beauty routine lately – L’OREAL Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer.

So far, I am really enjoying the L’OREAL Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer. It goes on my skin smoothly and absorbs quickly. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or sticky. In fact, it makes my skin feel silky soft and fully moisturized. I especially appreciate that it doesn’t weigh my skin down. I’m not a fan of wearing much make up, and I don’t like to have my skin feel like there is something covering it. Once the moisturizer absorbs into my skin I don’t feel like there is anything on my skin at all.

I’ll be sharing my full review of the product in the upcoming weeks. Keep an eye out for it.

Shugar Soapworks – Beautiful soaps that not only clean, but also saves lives


I love to fill my home with beautiful things – most especially things that smell lovely. I pride myself on making my home very welcoming and inviting to friends, family and guests.

When I know we’re having company over I go all out to make sure our home is not only clean, but I also like to add a few nice “finishing touches” to truly delight my guests. That can be everything from yummy treats to beautifully scented candles.

I like to offer my guests the “good” towels and best linens. I even go so far as to use beautiful soap in the bathroom. Actually… I enjoy having beautiful soap in the bathroom all the time.

I was recently introduced to a unique soap company called Shugar Soapworks. I like the name “Shugar” (sugar). When I think of the brand’s name I think of sweet smelling soaps.

Shugar Soapworks offers consumer a line of lovely hand soaps (you can use them in the shower too!) that are not only good for your skin, but also smell delightful.

I was sent a wonderful assortment of Shugar Soapworks soaps to sample and review. I received the following.

  • Rose
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Honey Almond
  • Cucumber Melon
  • Oatmeal & Verbena
  • Oatmeal & Coconut
  • Lemon Slices
  • Oatmeal & Lavendar

Shugar Soapworks soaps are cruelty-free and made only from the purest plant-derived ingredients. They never use sulfates, parabens, or animal by-products.

Each of the soaps has it’s own unique scent. What I like about the scents is that they smell natural – not artificial or “chemical-like.” The scents are subtle. It’s not like you are washing your hands (or body) with a bar of perfume. I prefer the subtle fragrances.

Shugar Soapworks is bar soap. I know that some people prefer liquid hand soaps or body wash. Not me. Call me “old school” but I prefer actual bars of soap.

Each of the soaps is good for your skin – as well as your spirit. Take for example the oatmeal soaps. Not only does the oatmeal help to clean and exfoliate your skin, but the uplifting scents are sure to make you smile.

I discovered just how wonderful oatmeal can be when I was pregnant with our daughter. I had incredibly itchy skin and the doctor recommended that I use oatmeal products (soap, soaks and similar). WOW! It made such a difference. Since then I have been a fan of oatmeal products. Add in a delightful scent and you have yourself a “must have” product.

If I had to pick my top three scents from Shugar Soapworks I’d say Rose, Lemon Slices and Oatmeal & Coconut. They all smell amazing, but those would be my top three (if I had to choose).

The Rose scented soap reminds me of my great-grandmother. I don’t know why. There is just something very classy and nostalgic about the scent.

PHOTO SOURCE: Shugar Soapworks Facebook Page – Pretty packaging!

Shugar Soapworks soaps are just as lovely to look at as they are to use. The packaging is really pretty. You could easily tuck a few bars in a gift basket. Each one-of-a-kind keepsake box tells a story of exquisite beauty and delicacy. Their packaging is also 100% recyclable, a perfect complement to their completely biodegradable soaps.

Shugar Soapworks soaps are not only wonderful to use, but the brand is very much into charitable work.

Shugar Soapworks fervently believes that Clean Hands Save Lives™. That’s why we work closely with our customers to identify nonprofit organizations across the country that can use individually wrapped bars of Shugar Soapworks soaps to better the lives of others.

By providing natural, sustainably crafted soaps, we hope to improve the health of those in our communities who are at high risk of illness. Since launching, we’ve delivered soaps to vital organizations like Comfort Cases, CityTeam Portland, The Los Angeles Mission, Operation Gratitude, Working Wardrobes, SOVA and more, from California to Massachusetts, Oregon to Virginia, and states in-between.

When Shugar Soapworks sent me soap to review they sent me a lot of bars. I knew it would take years for my family to use them all up. With the brand’s permission I donated a good chunk of the samples to a local woman’s charity that helps low income women/families, domestic abuse victims and others.

It made me feel really good to donate these pretty soaps to women who might be going through some really tough times. I hope the sweet smelling soaps lifted their spirits and helped them to feel relaxed and/or energized.

FYI… Shugar Soapworks soaps are not only for women. Men can enjoy them too. My husband happens to like the Honey Almond soap. Both of my kids (young adults) also enjoy the soaps. My husband and son DON’T think they are too “girly” at all. Trust me, if they thought that way they would never use them.

In addition to being charitable, Shugar Soapworks also believes in strong women. They understand what women around the world go through and how strong they need to be. Strong women need soft hands, which is what Shugar Soapworks is about.

If you are interested in learning more about this amazing brand visit ShugarSoapworks.com. I would encourage readers to visit the brand’s website to learn more about this remarkable brand and all that they stand for.

You can find Shugar Soapworks soap at many retail locations across the country. To find a store near you visit the brand’s website and click on the “Store Finder” tab. Dollar Tree and Dollar General are two locations across the country you can find the soaps. You can also find the soap on Amazon.

What do you think of Shugar Soapworks? Do any of the soaps stand out to you?


*I received free product samples to review. I donated most of the samples to a local woman’s charity. There was no compensation. The opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.

Tips on a Nighttime Routine for Healthy Hair


Waking up with beautiful hair is a dream of just about every female. Just like our skin, our hair defines our beauty.

Did you know that having healthy, lustrous hair is easily obtainable? There are plenty of things you can do in the comfort of your home.

Here are a few tips you can do each night to help you achieve the beautiful, healthy hair you dream of.


Whether you travel a lot or you are a stay at the home person, your hair goes through a lot during the day. As a result, your hair can lose  moisture and get damage over time. Just like your skin,  your hair needs a little pampering and care every day. Before you go to bed deep condition your hair with your favorite natural oil and wash it out with a gentle shampoo in the morning. Makes sure to massage your scalp, hair tips, and hair roots to provide maximum moisture.

Applying a Hair Serum

This is an alternative to the oiling process. Apply a hair serum before going to bed. Serums offer a protective layer to the hair and helps your hair to get strong. Serums are good for treating dry, frizzy hair. Don’t apply hair serum to your roots because it can make your hair look greasy.

Apply a Weekly Hair Mask

A weekly hair mask can do wonders for your hair. There are plenty available on the market or you can make one yourself using equal portions of coconut oil, yogurt, and fuller’s earth. Simply mix all of the ingredients together to form a paste and apply it to your hair. Leave it on for 1-2 hours then wash off with a hair cleanser.  Alternately, you can even apply aloe vera gel on your hair once in a week. Right after the first application, your hair will look shiny, healthy, and feel soft to the touch.

Comb and Detangle Your Hair

If you wish to wake up with beautiful hair in the morning, comb your hair with a brush from roots to the tip and detangle every strand. This will not only relax your scalp but also make sure your hair is detangled, which might have occurred during the day. Even if you are seriously exhausted, this is an important step that you cannot afford to miss.

Prepare Your Bed for Healthy Hair

Your bed that can help promote healthy hair. It is essential that you have a clean, dirt free bed. Check for your pillow case and if possible, change your pillow covers every day. Silk pillow covers can reduce tangling and damaging your hair.

Tie Your Hair to a Loose Braid or Loose Bun

If possible, tie your hair into a loose bun or braid before going to bed. This will help reduce tangles. In addition it will reduce friction on your hair which can cause split ends and breakage.

Make sure the bun or braid is loose. You don’t want to make it too tight because it can be uncomfortable and make the roots sore.

Cover Your Head if You Have Long Hair

If you have long hair you might wan to consider covering your hair in a muslin or silk cloth that stays on your hair the entire night. This can help prevent hair damage and split ends when you sleep. It can also help your hair retain it’s volume.

Sleeping on Damp Hair can Result in Severe Damage

Don’t go to bed with damp or wet hair. It will cause your hair to get tangled and promote split ends and breakage.

Try to let your hair air dry fully before bed. If need be use a hair dryer to get rid of any additional dampness that might be left.

Apply Vitamin E Topically if required

Did you know that Vitamin E is essential for healthy hair and skin? If you don’t get enough Vitamin E in your diet you can take supplements (check with your doctor first). You can also purchase Vitamin E capsules to use on your hair topically. Simply squeeze the serum out of the capsule and apply it directly to your hair. Leave it on over night and then wash your hair in the morning.

If you follow these easy steps you can have gorgeous, healthy hair.

Check out EndureLash, an all-natural makeup removing cleansing cloth


I’m going to say something that many women might gasp at – I am OK with going out of my home “au natural,” meaning I’m OK with going out in public with little to no make up on.

As a teen and young adult I wouldn’t be caught dead out of the house without a “full face” on. Back then I was into cover ups, foundations, eye shadow, blush… the works. It wasn’t until I became a mom that I learned to embrace the “less is more” theory. When you have an infant or toddler you know that finding the time to do your make up right is easier said than done.

These days I have plenty of time to spend putting on make up, but I choose not to. I just use a little foundation (just to cover up the uneven spots), powder, mascara and a wee bit of eye liner. If I’m going out (party, dinner…) I’ll do up my face some more (blush, eye shadow…).

I don’t really like the fee of make up on my face. I prefer my face to feel fresh and clean – like it does when you step out of the shower.

Me how I normally look and me all done up.

The moment I get home from work I go straight to the bathroom to wash off my make up.

Sometimes washing off the eye make up (liner, mascara) is not that easy. It smudges and gets all over the place. I also don’t like using regular face wash near my eyes. I tend to get it IN my eyes and that burns and stings. I don’t like when that happens. For that reason I am extremely careful about using face cleaner around my eyes.

About a month ago I was introduced so something called EndureLash. EndureLash is a product developed for those who wear lash extensions. It helps to keep your extensions in shape.

I don’t use lash extensions (I didn’t even know there was such a thing).

The company also sells an organic eye make up remover. This product was of interest to me. I like that it’s organic and I like that it minimizes the risk of me getting facial cleanser in my eyes.

Here is what the brand (EndureLash) has to say about the Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth.

Made with Organic Bamboo. With or without eyelash extensions, our EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloths are a safe, hypoallergenic tool to help you safely cleanse the delicate skin around your eyes — using only warm water. You will no longer need harsh chemicals, cotton rounds, disposable wipes, or makeup sponges that can harbor bacteria. EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloths provide a better, more hygienic way to remove eye makeup.

I was sent one to review.

Using the cloth is easy. Simply run it under warm water, then gently use it to wipe around your eyes to remove eye shadow, make up, eye liner and even mascara.

I found the cloth easy to work with and it gets the job done.

I don’t use waterproof mascara, so I don’t know how well it works with that, but for regular mascara and eye liner the cloth does a great job of washing it off.

Organic cloth and handy travel/storage bag.

Be careful NOT to scrub or pull on your skin. The eye area is very delicate. Just use the cloth gently.

I used to use a regular wash cloth to remove eye make up, but this cloth is much softer.

After I am done I rinse it out with very warm/hot water and hang it up to dry. When someone in my family does the laundry I ask them to toss the EndureLash cloth into the wash. So far it washes/dries very well.

I like that this is reusable, so I don’t have to waste money on cleansing clothes. I also like that I can remove make up without a face wash and the risk of getting it in my eyes.

This is also great to take on the go with you (gym, vacation, work…) so that you can remove your make up whenever you need to without face wash.

If you are interested in learning more about the EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth, visit EndureLash.com. You can also check them out on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Their links are found on the bottom left of their website.

What do you think about EndureLash’s eye make up removal cloth? Does it sound like a product you need in your life? Feel free to share your thoughts.

NEW Skin Healing Masks from Arbonne


I am not one to wear a lot of make up, but I feel the need to put on “my face” whenever I leave the house. If I’m just running a few quick errands I’ll go without any make up on. But if I am going to work our someplace a bit more “populated” (mall, ballpark, movies…) I’ll make sure my make up is on.

The reason why I am not a huge fan of a lot of make up is that I don’t like the way it makes my skin feel. I don’t like feeling “heavy” or like there is something resting on top of my skin. I prefer the feeling of fresh, clean skin – the way your face feels when you step out of the shower.

When I am not wearing make up I like to take care of my skin. The older I get the more little “imperfections” I am noticing. I also notice that my skin is not as bright and healthy looking as it once was. It seems more washed out and dull.

Recently I was sent some face masks from Arbonne to try out. I am a fan of beauty products, especially anything that can help to restore my skin to the way it was (subtle, glowing, smooth…). I am also a fan of the Arbonne brand. I’ve used a few of their products over the years and I have always been pleased with them.

I was sent the following products to review.

NEW! Arbonne Rescue & Renew Detox Mask

This creamy French pink clay formula cleanses to draw out impurities from the skin’s surface like a magnet, resulting in smaller-looking pores. Utilizing an oil-pulling technology with 5 self-neutralizing acids to help clarify and brighten skin’s appearance, the mask transitions from wet to dry to visibly show where excess sebum is drawn out. Balanced out with hydrating rosemary oil so your skin is never stripped of moisture.

I like that this mask dries to let you know when it’s time to remove it.

I have found that my skin feels less greasy/oily when using this mask. Since I don’t wear a lot of make up during the summer months, and it’s always hot, my skin tends to get oily – more so than other times of the years. I am finding less oil in my “T-Zone” (forehead, nose, chin) when I use this mask.

My skin can be sensitive at times too and I have not had any issues using this mask after the first few times. The first few times my face felt tingly and it was a bit red, but the more I used it the more I grew accustomed to it. Now it’s not a problem anymore.

I’m not fond of the scent, but you only have to deal with it for about 10-15 minutes until the mask dries and you can remove it.

This comes in a large tube and you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

NEW! Arbonne RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Mask

Pineapple and papaya enzymes in this mask work together to gently remove dead skin cells to minimize the look of pores and improve the appearance of skin tone revealing your healthiest-looking complexion. Sustainable orange stem cells help to improve the appearance of skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and conditioning the skin.

This mask is more of lotion than a typical mask. You apply it to your skin for around 5 minutes then wash it off. You don’t want for it to dry like the other mask.

This mask has more of a typical lotion scent to it. It’s subtle and didn’t bother me at all.

So far I haven’t noticed any visible changes in my skin. It’s possible it has to be used for a longer amount of time than what I have used it thus far.

It does make my skin feel soft after I wash it off. You use it on clean skin and when you remove it your skin continues to feel freshly cleaned. There is no residue.

This mask does make my cheeks a bit red after using it, but the redness goes away in about a half hour (give or take) after washing it off. Since I do this at night before bed it’s not a big deal.

It does come with pretty packaging, much prettier than the other two masks.

Arbonne Clear Future Soothing Overnight Mask 

This lightweight skin clearing mask is formulated with exopolysaccharide, derived from marine algae, helps mattify skin and control sebum by absorbing it at the skin’s surface. Prebiotics help condition and moisturize skin while preventing impurities from settling into and clogging pores.

I have not given this mask a try… yet. Since I have been using the other two masks I didn’t want to throw this one into the mix, then it would be hard to get a good sense of how well this one works.

I like that is absorbs and controls the oil on your skin. As I mentioned earlier I have an issue with that.

With this mask you need to leave it on overnight and rinse it off in the morning. I’m not too keen on the idea of leaving something on my face all night, but I am willing to give it a try if the results are beautifully moisturized, non-oil skin.

All three products are available on the Arbonne website, Arbonne.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of their link are found at the bottom right of thier website.

Are you a fan of Arboone? Do you have a favorite product?
