Skincare Redefined with ageLOC ME by NuSkin


If you were to ask my Mom what I was like as a teenager or young adult with regards to my skincare, my guess would be that she would tell you that she considered me to be a product junkie. The honest truth is that while my routine has simplified significantly, I continue to LOVE testing out new skincare products. The geek in me was extremely thrilled when I was asked to test out the new ageLOC ME device from NuSkin! Seriously, the functions on this little device are impressive! ageLOC ME launched in North America on November 15, 2016. … Continue reading

How to Teach Children How to Wash Their Hands

live clean giveaway

My hands ALWAYS have to be clean. I cannot stand it if I have dirty hands. It is to the extreme folks! I am a bit of a germaphobe, but that is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the feeling of “not clean” hands. You know that feeling? Perhaps you don’t. Perhaps you weren’t blessed with first child syndrome like I am. Do you know what I’m talking about: first child syndrome? My Mom blames my persistent need to always have clean hands on being a first child. You see, as her first child, she constantly … Continue reading

The @Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler #PGMom

This post was written by my hubby! He says he is “A husband, a father, and an engineer. In that order.” Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler. I am, quite possibly, the precise target demographic for this product because: I look extremely goofy without facial hair. As a result of number 1 above, I always maintain some form of facial hair. I am married to a woman who believes that any facial hair longer than 0.25″ is “scruffy”, “unkempt”, “messy” and generally unpleasant to look at. (So, yeah, there is no talk of … Continue reading
