    Restore & Maintain Good Bacteria On The Skin With Mother Dirt

    Restore & Maintain Good Bacteria On The Skin With Mother Dirt My Grandma and my Mom often said the reason young people have so many skin problems is because the chemicals we use on our face. Of course I didn’t listen and felt they are just too behind the time. 😉 Now I am a grandma and I started to realize that they might be right. Some of the skincare products we are using actually damage the natural state of our skin. The human body is a super magic system that works very well by itself. What I was doing was not helping, and maybe even destroying it. I felt…

    Happy Eyes, Happy Wallet – Reading Glasses from Readers.com

    Happy Eyes, Happy Wallet – Reading Glasses from Readers.com It was right after I turned 40 years old… I started to notice some changes in my body. One of them was my eyesight. I started getting blurred vision when doing minor activities and I was squinting a lot. My crow’s feet were more and more obvious around my eyes. I even got headaches more often. Later, my eye doctor confirmed that I had presbyopia. Really!?! I was quite upset because I didn’t feel like I was that old. My doctor told me that the average person to get presbyopia is 36 years old. This made me feel a little better…

    Relieve Stress and Soothe Aches and Pains with Vitl Waters®

    Relieve Stress and Soothe Aches and Pains with Vitl Waters® This last month was the 10 year anniversary of me living in Michigan, but I feel like I only know a very small part of this place. Everyday I am learning something new about this place where I live. 😉 Have you heard the Vitl Waters story? I hadn’t until recent. During the mid-1800’s an old, gimpy horse in Mt. Clemens, Michigan spent time wallowing in the mud and water near an abandoned, leaky salt tank. Due to its contact with this mineral water, the horse’s limp declined. The secret in the mud has to go back to more than…

    My Anti-Aging Secret Cellular Repair Night Serum from Bellatorra

    My Anti-Aging Secret Cellular Repair Night Serum from Bellatorra Today is a very special day for me. It is the 10th anniversary of me moving to the U.S.A. There were so many things that have happened in my life in the last 10 years. I got married, had my first house, learned English, learned driving, learned American culture, got my own family, got my teaching certificate, got a full time teaching job, became a blogger, and now I’ve become single again since my husband passed away. But when I look at myself in the mirror, it seems like it’s still 10 years ago, and I’m the same me who stepped…

    Winter to Spring transitioning comfortably with ANIA booties

    Winter to Spring Transitioning Comfortably with ANIA Booties It depends on where you live. For some, it is Spring already, but for us Michiganders, we are still in between Winter and Spring. Winter fights back quite often and it just doesn’t want to leave us alone. This Wednesday will be my 10th year of living in the U.S. I noticed my body has totally gotten used to the cold weather in Michigan. For me now, as long as it is above 50 degrees, I can show some skin and will not feel cold. What about you? What is your tolerance for cold temperature? One way to show some skin in…

    Love who you are Sparkle and Shine in Belldini

    Love Who You Are – Sparkle and Shine in Belldini You may think I am a confident and pretty woman. But in fact, I have struggled my whole entire life to become really comfortable in my own skin. Everybody knows how much damage a dark childhood can cause. My mom never liked me because I am not a boy and I didn’t know how to surrender to the unfair treatment. I had gotten beat up many times because I refused to say sorry to her when she treated me like dirt. My brother got more and better food than I did. He could buy just about everything, but I could…

    Be Bold, Be You – Unique Sunglasses by Winkwood

    Be Bold, Be You – Unique Sunglasses by Winkwood As the world celebrates Earth Day on April 22, let’s use our own actions to support this cause by wearing wooden sunglasses. My Desert Rose from Winkwood has gotten so much attention and quickly becomes a conversation starter. I love a pair of good wooden sunglasses because they balance beauty, function and the environment. Besides being a natural resource, they are also very stylish. What is very cool is that each pair, even though they are the same style and wood, will always look different due to the grain of the wood. No two are exactly alike. They are unique, just…
