    Age Healthily—How To Protect Your Immune System In A COVID World

    This post is sponsored by The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, but all the opinions are my own. Last month I turned 47 years old. I seriously feel like I am still in my early 30s, but my physical body sometimes doesn’t agree with me. Lol! Getting older has definitely affected my immune system. Our immune system helps protect our body from harmful substances such as bacteria, viruses, toxins, cancer cells and even body tissues from another person. The immune system makes cells and antibodies that destroy these harmful substances. We all know how important it is to have a healthy immune system to help navigate this COVID…

    Tips To Look And Feel Your Best in 2021

    With this new year, especially after 2020, we all need a new look to jump start a fresh and hopeful 2021, right? Speaking of new looks, did you notice anything about my hair? 😉 Well, I recently chopped my hair short and donated 10 inches of it to charity. My hairdresser was so impressed by how thick and healthy my hair was that they asked me what my secret was. Lol! After she found out I was almost 47 years old, she REALLY wanted to know all my secrets for looking 10 years younger and healthier! Other than the ways we are all aware of (for example, eating more vegetables,…

    Spread Hope, Not COVID

    This post is sponsored by The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, but all the opinions are my own. As we look at COVID data, it’s easy to get discouraged about the state of our world. The pandemic has no doubt shaped how we live, work, and even how we relate to each other. 2020 was a tough year but we have all heard of or experienced acts of kindness in many different ways. A few weeks ago when my husband and I were getting ready to pay our bill at a fast-food drive-thru, we were told that the young gentleman in the car right in front of us…

    The Best Gift You Can Give To Your Loved Ones

    This post is sponsored by The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, but all the opinions are my own. As many of you know, I recently got married, bought a new house and am now a wife and stepmom to 4 kids.

Lately, I have been focusing on ordering gifts for my family members. I enjoy finding gifts, wrapping gifts, giving gifts and opening gifts; all the laughter and joy is just so heartwarming. People who know me…

    Learning to Talk About Menopause

    In Chinese culture, there’s a lot of topics too ‘inappropriate’ to talk about. Many of these taboo subjects are things that happen often and to many people. While in American culture we might be more open about certain things, Chinese culture is the exact opposite. It took me a while to get used to something that was such a culture shock for me. One of the biggest taboo conversations is nearly anything that has to do with women’s bodies. That’s one of the many things I love about America. Talking about these things that are a part of everyday life are important so that you no longer have to struggle…

    Empowering Women with Natori || I am Good Enough

    This post is partnered with Natori. But all opinions are my own. I used to hate my body and dislike myself for a long time. The memory of my mom yelling at me saying how ugly I am and showing me her discussed face seemed to haunt me for a long time. Then I turned 13 years old, my period came and my boobs started to grow. I got yelled at for being a dirty women now. My mom was super ashamed of my body because my boobs were bigger than the average Chinese girls. She made me hunch over so I can make my boobs appear smaller. She yelled…

    Wellness ||Exploring CBD Oil With X-SPRAYS

    This post is partnered with X-SPRAYS. But all the options are my own! I had never heard about cbd oil in my whole life until about two months ago. Lol, I know, I have lived a sheltered life. A social media agent that I have worked with for a long time asked me if I would like to try the CBD oil (since it is really good for the skin and sleep). I was like, OF COURSE! I’d heard of CBDNutra.co.uk from my friends, who couldn’t recommend it enough. So hey ho – I will try anything that will help me with my sleep and if my skin can get…
