Detox Soup Recipe

Most of us start out the New Year with the best of intentions.  We want to live better.  Get more sleep.  Stress less.   Get more exercise and eat right. Sort of wiping the slate clean from the year before and starting a new.  Whether or not you stick to none, a few or all of these resolutions, mantras or promises you make with that little internal voice that keeps you awake at night, is up to you… but if you want to at least attempt to start off on the right foot, try this detox soup.

If you’re starting that new diet this year… want to just drop a few of the pounds that you’ve gained over the holidays…or want to be overall healthy, you is gonna dig this soup!

You’re literally going to flush out the toxins of 2012 and move into the fiber of 2013!

Stress-Free, Stress-Relieving Holiday Gift Ideas

 

Is it just me, or does it seem like holiday gift lists are getting longer and longer every year? In addition to the kids, family, and friends, there are gifts for the teachers, teacher’s aides, babysitters, mailmen, doormen, garbage men… and the list goes on!

To make your gift giving easier, here are my top 10 gifts in both high and low prices.  Of course, the men in the above-mentioned list might prefer a bottle of scotch or some good ‘ole cash.  But many men will appreciate a scented candle, especially if they think it will bring them a night of romance. Successful re-gifting is always an option for them too!

So off we go, here are my 2012 gift picks (which I’m sure you’ll LOVE for yourself too) … Read more »

The Greatest Detox Tea Ever! Peau-Pay Tea [pronounced: poo-pee}

Peau-Pay Tea

Day after Thanksgiving.  You’ve eaten almost three times your weight in food.  You feel sick. You feel bloated.  You feel like you would like to ex-communicate yourself from certain family members… specifically Aunt Marge (I know no one who has an Aunt Marge, so this will not be offensive to anyone I know) who made that ridiculously delicious Apple Crumble dessert that you could literally taste the 4 sticks of butter that went into it, but didn’t care because it was so good.  Let’s face it… you’re a few pounds heavier for the wear thanks to that all “Thankful” day!  More like NO-THANK-ful day!!

You’re in need of a little detox… you’re in need of a Peau-Pay tea. pronounced:  [poo-pee]

The Joy of a Vajacial At Stript Wax Bar – Los Angeles

A Vajacial… a WHAT????

When it comes to the bikini area, everyone (or at least everyone I know!) wants to be neat and clean for as long as possible so as to avoid the excruciating pain of waxing. For busy moms, simply knowing that you’ve taken care of yourself ‘down there’ is a stress-reliever in itself since it’s one less thing to think about when you cuddle up to your partner at night.

If you’re used to shaving, normal waxing or Brazilian (which is, for those of you who don’t know, the removal of all the hair in the bikini area except for maybe a small landing strip), you’re probably used to the occasional annoying ingrown hairs that appear a few days after waxing. Well, ladies, I’m happy to report that help is here! Read more »

Coffee & Cocoa Brightening Face/Body Mask

Even though I can’t have caffeine, I LOVE coffee!  I also love cocoa, and the two together pack a mighty punch, both as a beverage (hello Mocha!) and as a beauty treatment to enhance your skin.  Coffee and cocoa masks are favored by many beauty experts because, in combination, they decrease puffiness in the face and eye area, wake up dull skin, and brighten your complexion.

WHY? Both coffee and cocoa contain caffeine, an antioxidant that acts as a stimulant. When the Coffee & Cocoa Mask is applied to skin, it improves the blood circulation and promotes radiant, healthy skin. Read more »
