Favorite Hand Lotion

Ultimate Strength Hand Salve by Kiehl's is by FAR my favorite hand lotion. My daughters pediatrician first told me about the product. I knew a woman who washed her hands at least 50+ times a day, had to know something about lotion. Just a little dap of this baby and it goes a long way. It doesnt feel greasy and it lasts! Kiehl's has an awesome line of baby & other beauty products as well. None of their products are tested on animals which is just one more reason to love their products!

Do you have pets?? Did you know that living with a pet brings you many things in life??
A few benefits:
Less stress in our lives
Mental Stimulation
Nuturing Skills
I live with 3 dogs and they bring me more love, happiness, and laughter than I ever thought a pet could provide. There are so many pets living in shelters today. Why not bring more love to your life and adopt one today.

Aveda Hair Products

I love Aveda products. My very favorite from their line is this Rosemary Mint shampoo. I have very thin and greasy hair if not washed everyday. I use this product everyday. I love the scent and the way it leaves my hair clean and not weighed down.

Shark Steam Mop

I recently purchased a Shark Steam Mop from Costco. I've been wanting a steam mop for some time. When Costco put out a coupon, I was all over it. I was so disappointed with my purchase that I took it right back. I loved the idea of 3 different head sizes, the length of the cord, the size of the water tank, and the fact you dont have to use any chemicals. With a child and 3 dogs, I dont like using harsh chemicals in my house. I have dark laminate floors and tile. The mop left streaks all over both of them. I tried adding a little white vinegar to the water hoping that would solve the streak problem. I tried again with the same results. So its back to the drawing board to find another steam mop. If anyone has one they love, I would love to hear about it!

Favorite Vacuum

For Christmas Santa brought me an Animal Dyson Vacuum. With 3 dogs and a small child, this was by far my favorite gift. Yes, I'm a little on the odd side to be in love with a vacuum. I cannot believe the suction and how easy it is to use and clean. Dyson will even send you a reminder when its time to wash the filter. Yes!!! The filter is washable. No more filters to purchase every 3 months like my last vacuum. It also comes with attachments for your furniture. My advice on making that BIG purchase, buy one from Bed, Bath, & Beyond using one of their 20% coupons...BTW BBB takes their expired coupons. You can also purchase a refrib vacuum from Frys or Google to find one.  You can save a lot of money by buying a refrib.

PSI Bands

When I was pregnant with my daughter, night time was the worst. I had night time sickness and could only find relief with PSI Bands. I loved all the colors to choose from and most importantly, no drugs were involved. They worked great for motion sickness as well. I found that after I wore them to a theme park!
Here is what their site has to say about the product:

Psi Bands (pronounced "Sigh Bands") are acupressure wrist bands for the relief of nausea due to morning sickness (pregnancy), motion sickness/ travel, chemotherapy, and anesthesia.

Unlike any product on the market, Psi Bands are: Drug-free, Adjustable, Comfortable, Fashionable, Waterproof, Reusable, Affordable

FDA-cleared Psi Bands are a stylish alternative for those who suffer from nausea.

Benefits of Lavender

The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to remove nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. Lavender has the Latin name Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which fills a room spread with lavender oil with a clean aroma.

Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the plant, primarily through steam distillation. The flowers of lavender are fragrant in nature and have been used for making potpourris since years.

I recently added Lavender sachets to my store!
