Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!! I found this great facial mask that can be done at home and healthy for your skin! Pamper yourself and give yourself a pumpkin facial mask today while the kids are out trick or treating :) You only need two ingredients and that's a can of pure pumpkin and honey. Pumpkin is good for your skin because it is filled with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and anti-aging properties. Pumpkin and honey nourishes and hydrates your skin. Pumpkin isn't only good for the skin. Pumpkin seeds and the pumpkin itself have health boosting nutrients!
Pumpkin is low in fat and calories and rich in disease-fighting nutrients such as:

Check out the link below for your facial mask recipe.

If you're at home handing out candy to the trick or treaters while giving yourself a facial, you can say you're dressed up as a pumpkin!

What's In Your Makeup???

Do any of you know what's in your makeup? I used to buy makeup such as my lip gloss, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara from stores like Target or Walmart. My foundation I'd buy from M.A.C. I never knew what I was putting on my face. Many of us don't take the time to read labels and learn about what we are putting on our bodies. Those who do, need to know that just because it says "natural" does not entirely mean it is. Many things we use are toxic to our body and we don't even know. These toxins lead to cancer! Not something any of us would like to have. Lately, there have been so many people I know have been diagnosed with cancer and it could have been something they are putting on or in their body. It's better to know now and make a change in what you buy to prevent introducing your body to carcinogens. This video is great to watch and informative. Maybe it's time to change the beauty products you're using. Enjoy the video!

Travel Candles

The Holiday season is approaching and many of us do a lot of traveling during this time. I LOVE candles. I found some candles that are great to have when you're away from home. Ever want to make your stay somewhere feel more like home? Maybe you're staying at a hotel, renting a home/condo for a few days while you're traveling. You walk into this place you're staying at and maybe it doesn't smell so great. Eww! Well, here's the solution. Travel tin candles can provide fresh fruity scent to your temporary home. Put them in the common area or in the bathroom. Wherever you like! Five scents come in this set that I use, so you could also split them up and use them as stocking stuffers! :)

I recently attended a health and wellness workshop for Arbonne and learned something new that I would like to share with everyone. Another Arbonne Independent Consultant at the workshop was telling us a story about one of her clients who has shingles. Her client started to use the Arbonne Rejuvenating Cream and his testimonial was that it has relieve/reduce his symptoms. The cream DOES NOT cure shingles, just relieves the symptoms which allows shingles patients to get through their daily activities a little easier. :) Amazing!!

Turning myself into a runner

I'm not going to lie, I HATE running!! I'm definitely a walker, and I could walk for miles. :) 
I have decided that I'm going to run a 5K in November. So, you're probably wondering why am I running a 5K if I don't like to run. Well, I want to work my way up to be able to run a marathon and try to like running. I never was a good runner. I hated track and field throughout grade school, and always was close to the last ones to be done running the course. haha. When I run, I have a hard time breathing and then I get cramps on my side. With all the things I hate about running, I'm going to train myself to like it!! All I want to do is to be able to say "I finished a marathon!" It's just one thing I can check off on my bucket list, and it's better to do this running deal now than when I get older because there's less of a chance I would do it. :) So, to all the runners out there... what advice do you have for us runner wannabes?

Wish me luck and your support (and motivation) is greatly appreciated!

Goodbye Depression

Here's an interesting article about getting over depression the healthy way. Usually doctors will prescribe you drugs to treat depression, but you don't need it. Save your money on synthetic drugs and get rid of depression naturally just by taking better care of yourself. Some things this article say will get rid of depression are: exercise, yoga, nutrition, omega 3's, sun, and salt (weird, I know, but the article explains how this will help). I can definitely testify the sun helping. Ever since I've moved to Arizona, I have noticed a difference in my mood than when I lived in Michigan because we didn't get sunny days EVERY day. Aaaaand when I live in Michigan, I was in a better mood when it was sunny out. So, yeah the sun makes people happy! :) Enjoy the article!

Say Goodbye to Dry Skin!

Ladies it is not too early to start your wish list for Christmas! :)

Fall is here and that means dry skin is upon us. When I lived in Michigan, I had really dry skin during the fall and winter seasons. Now that I live in the Arizona desert, I have dry skin all year, so I'm always hydrating my skin. Being a dental assistant, I'm always washing my hands so they are dry all the time! I've come to LOVE shea butter because it keeps my skin hydrated and soft. I tried this natural shea butter hand cream that doesn't feel really thick or oily when you apply it to your skin like some other brands I've tried. It comes in three different scents and small enough to travel with and keep in your purse. You get three tubes that are full of Vitamins E and A, shea butter, and cocoa seed butter.  

They make great stocking stuffers too!!! I know what my sisters will be getting in their stockings! ;)

Yummy Sweets!

Can't believe it's October already! Halloween is around the corner and that means our sweet tooth will be craving that Halloween candy. I don't know about everyone else, but when I hand out candy to the cute trick or treaters, I like to hand them some candy and then I have some for myself from the candy bowl. And then just like that the bowl is more than half empty! Or maybe some of you take a few of your kids candy from their trick or treat bags, because they shouldn't be eating that much candy anyway right? Oye, the pounds we've probably added from eating all that candy! 
This year will be a little different. NO more eating from the candy bowl and only leaving the candy to the trick or treaters. This year I'll be snacking on Figure 8 weight loss chews in delicious cranberry flavor! I am going to satisfy my sweet tooth and lose weight! You can indulge in this sweet treat with no regrets and at the same time feel healthy and look great! Who wouldn't want that?!
