Cold Weather Lip Saver

Lip care is essential in winter months. Just stepping outside can leave them chapped and cracked. I have tried many different brands of lip conditioners but have difficulty finding ones with out all the nasty stuff like parabens, sulfates and mineral oil. Golden Door has the #1 winter beauty necessity from the #1 destination spa in the world. The ultimate lip care pouch includes lip conditioner and lanternshine lip protector SPF 15. The lip conditioning treatment is rich in humectants and vitamins. It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory to protect and strenghten your lips. It also promotes healing of chapped lips and protects from dryness. This is the key since we are treating the lips

Kyle Cease Evolving Out Loud

After hearing about Kyle Cease from a friend I decided to find out more via youtube. I quickly became captivated with watching his videos. I can't quite categorize him, perhaps a motivatinal comedian. Either way I was hooked. I learned he was coming to New York for his Evolving Out Loud show and booked tickets to go. The show was absolutely fantastic and hilarious at the same time. I think that is what makes him so relatable and easy to listen and learn from. Similar to the law of attraction and The Secret, his teachings are similar in living your true life. He speaks about living on the edge of your heart. Kyle repeatedly stated everything good or bad without judgement simply say "I love th

Your Defect = Your Value

I was at my Dad's house recently as he was doing some de-cluttering and purging. After 92 years of living, one collects a number of very interesting items. Two such items that caught my attention were some old stamp collecting books. I pulled them off the shelf in his basement anxious to see what I might find inside. I wasn't disappointed. There were an untold number of beautiful stamps dating back almost 100 years that my Dad must have collected as a kid. I was fascinated by their beauty and age and started to wonder what they might be worth, so I made a note about a few of the oldest ones and decided to research them on the Internet. I have to admit I was surprised by what I found. Thes

Open Your Heart

It might sound cliche but loving yourself is where all love starts. I have found over the years of practicing yoga, specifically Kundalini that I have so much appreciation for myself, mind, and body. It has allowed me to experience true joy and happiness within myself first. This allows love to flow in with ease and abundance. Opening your heart is the best place to start. There a simple poses to being and more advanced when your body is ready. Allow chi energy to flow and trust love will too. *Sunshine from Poe Yoga explains how yoga is a very powerful connection between mind, body and soul. By Moving through particular asanas combined with deep Ujjayi breath, your prana( energy ) is allo

Sweet Love Treats

We all know Valentine's Day is for flowers and chocolates but what if those chocolates were Mochi dipped? I found the ultimate indulgence from Mochidoki. It is a New York brand that will deliver right to your doorstep. The Valentin'e Day mochi are even sweeter with 2 collections, including heart shapes. The “Love You Mochi Much” Collection, taking a cue from the popular Valentine’s Day gift of chocolate covered strawberries.

The “Love at First Bite” Collection is a chocolate lovers dream. Featuri

Youthful Eyes

I feel like our eyes instantly show our youth. When someone has a pair of sunglasses on it is not as easy to determine how old they might be. The second the sunglasses come off we can guess pretty acurately. This keeps me always on the hunt for natural products that do the job of keeping my eyes young. Oz Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel does the trick. It is 100% natural and 75% organic and treats dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. When I know I have a big day of filming on TV it is essential to put this on my eyes the night before. It is so soothing and smells like fresh cut cucumbers. I also like the fact that it can be used all over your face. So for extra relief from dryness and wrinkle

4 Easy Ways To Incorporate Love Into Your Home Year Around

The entry to your home is your first impression of it and it’s the perfect place to set the tone for Love. People tend to glance to the right as they enter a home so it’s a great place to display a beautiful table with an open bowl or a family or couples portrait on the wall holding hands, sharing a kiss or family hug. Remember, if you enter a home with a feeling of Love, you will exit with a feeling of Love. Out of our five senses, the strongest is our sense of smell. Scents remind us of people, places, and life experiences that we love. A scent has the ability to transcend us to another time and place. Placing candles or essential oil room fragrance throughout your home in various scents

Glamulet Gift

Valentine's Day always seems like the perfect day to gift little gifts to friends and family that you love. It is not just a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife day in my eyes. Although a perfect time for little gifts for those too. If you are going to give a little something to a BFF, Sister, Mom, or Aunt I feel like it should be thoughtfull and show how much you know them. I was browsing on Glamulet.com a found the complete bracelet to be the perfect gift. I customized one with a photo heart charm of me and my sister. For an Aunt I love the lotus rose gold charm and Mom the love like flowers set. I also had no problem spotting charms that are so sweet to recieve from that special guy, lik

Probiotics for Good Health

My father has been talking about probiotics and digestive enzymes for as long as I can remember. He has always explained the importance of them. My sister and I often brushed off what he was saying and took a suppliment here and there. Most recently I have been reading more about them and the imporance they bring to our well being. Since I encourge a healthy "drug free" lifestyle to family and friends and swear by vitamins I started to take probiotics more seriously. After reading pages and pages online I now know why my father did so much pushing. Probiotics are literally little miracle workers bringing good live bacteria to the digestive system. In essence they keep your gut healthy preven

Escape To a Sizzling Tropical Destination 4 Hours from NYC

Turks and Caicos is located south of the Bahamas and is easily accessible from all major airports in the tri-state area. Most with direct flights, allowing one to be basking in the sun on Grace Bay, while sipping a Pina Colada in under four hours. I had the pleasure of recently spending some time in Turks and Caicos and I would say though this is the low season ( June 1st – Nov 30th) I consider it the best time to visit if you are looking to avoid the crowds and also save money on hotels. High season is considered mid-December – mid April, hotel prices are higher and they’re more crowds. However, during high season you will find more restaurant open as several are closed during low season. N

We are so excited to have Dr. Nikki Goldstein ,who is a Sexologist, Relationship Expert and author of #SingleButDating to give us her tips on how to spice up your Valentine's Day. 1. Don't feel like you have to be stereotypical valentine’s day mushy. People tend to feel the pressure to be romantic on Feb the 14th and as though there is some romantic mold they have to fit into, but what means more is instead knowing your partner and what type of your relationships you have. It's important to do something or choose a gift that reflects them not one that is advertised on TV. 2. When you are looking at something to do or a present to give try something that shows you have put thought into it. A
