How I Clear Up My Eczema | Glowy, Healthy Skin Edition

I hosted a live video chat on my Instagram channel earlier this week sharing how eczema has affected not only me but my children for years.

I’m not saying I’ve found a cure, but I’ve definitely found that the following solutions have reduced our eczema flare ups dramatically. Use an apple cider vinegar rinse as needed. I’ve found that by using an apple cider vinegar rinse on my hair and skin, most of my eczema has dried up as a result. I typically mix one part ACV to one part water in a bottle. My eczema is [Click here to continue reading]

Summer Animal Print

I am having an amazing summer and these animal print pants are making it even better. There’s just something about putting on an outfit that allows you to express who you are. If I had to describe myself in one word it would be BOLD and that’s what these pants make me feel. They are from the LOFT and the print instantly caught my eye when I first saw them. They are linen with a navy blue and white animal print. I paired them with this black silk, layered top from TALBOTS. The silk and linen worked well together and made the pant print appear almost black rather than blue. Because the pants would be on the floor without heels, I wore these strappy NINE [Click here to continue reading]

Father’s Day Weekend Fashion | Animal Print

This Father’s Day weekend was epic only because I got to spend it with the most amazing man evah! I wanted to make sure he felt really special from the time he got off work Friday until the time he laid his head on his pillow Sunday night. That’s pretty much what happened and all the while I gave him something absolutely gorgeous to look at. This is one of the three outfits I picked to wear this weekend. Only two of them were worn and this was one of my favorite.  My hair was done by my stylist who shares the same name as mine, only spelled differently. She and I are only people we know personally with our name so it’s always funny [Click here to continue reading]

These 5 tummy flattening exercises, protein shake recipes and shopping trip have been compensated by EAS Sports Nutrition. #easbrand #PowerinProtein Being a wife and momma is the most challenging work I do. It takes a lot of sacrifice that I willingly give even to my own detriment.  Sometimes I’ve given so much, that I didn’t leave enough for myself. My husband saw that, which he admired, but he felt it wasn’t healthy to give everything to the family and not take care of myself. I wasn’t eating like I should, dressing up or exercising.  We sat down and made some changes so that I could take care of my health and well being. This included planning meals I liked and exercising. When I started eating [Click here to continue reading]

Fitness Routines for Moms that Will Get You the Body You Want

It’s long overdue for me to share my fitness routine, but before I do, I want to share a little back story. I’m a mom of four, one via c-section, so those of you who have children understand the trauma your body endures to give birth to these wonderful gifts from God.   My tiny body stretched far beyond what I thought possible, bore weight greater than what’s medically recommended for my height and all this was possible because God knew what He was doing when He created women. But with each birth I stretched more, gained more, and didn’t snap back to my pre-baby shape as easily as I did after my first child. I wasn’t uncomfortable with my weight, but I did begin [Click here to continue reading]
