Are you getting enough?

How much is enough

  Okay, get your minds outta the gutter here! I’m talking about water, you know, good old H2O? Whenever I hear multiple messages about the same topic I start to feel like I’m meant to pay closer attention. Like I’m being hit over the head with it.

In fact, most of us are actually pretty dehydrated and have habitually been in that state for a … [Read more...]

BAM! Just Like That!

Wanna Betta Butt?

  How many of you have ever bought into the crazy marketing promises we are bombarded with on a daily basis? Marketing gurus play on our weaknesses and the things we are self conscious about.

For some reason, we just keep on hoping and believing.   I’m pretty immune to those ploys at this point in my … [Read more...]

Some said that my skin looks better now, 20 years later! And no, I haven’t had a brow or lid lift or any … [Read more...]

When I encounter a sale, I feel lucky. When I have a day of savings, I’m on cloud nine. My “day of savings” began at Visible Changes in the West Oaks Mall in Houston, TX. I felt that it was time for a change. (It has been over a year since my last haircut.) Grant, my new go-to hairdresser, was phenomenal!

I go months and months with clear skin and on this particular day I get a big honking pimple! All I can think is that I must have been unkind to someone … [Read more...]
