Staying Hydrated! Coconut Water & Raspberry Cocktail

Staying hydrated.  It’s one of the biggest things we preach to ourselves and our girlfriends when we go out for a night on the town with them!  I can hear myself telling my friend right now… “Oh honey, go home and drink a BIG glass of water, take two Advil and you’ll feel awesome tomorrow! No hangover, I promise!!”

So being that I’m a good friend, I’d like to share a little secret to the “not feeling like sh*t the next day” drinking trick.  Coconut Water.

Ok, stop laughing.  I’m serious! It’s like the fountain of superior hydration low in calorie fat free juices!  It’s filled with magnesium, calcium and vitamin C.  It’s rad and tastes good!

Coconut water seems to be one of those things that you’re seeing everywhere in the super-market.  Every corner you turn you see those eco-friendly boxes that are filled with the stuff!  At first I resisted. I mean, I like coconut, but what’s all the fuss about?  Then I caved in… hated it at first… then found a brand that I just loved and now I can’t get enough of the stuff!!! What a love story, right?  It’s a really mild flavor of coconut.  It’s not in your face BAM! Don’t go for the sweetened ones, go for unsweetened, it’s so much better for you.

Cures for Insomnia Through Food


Remember the days pre-kids when it was just so cool to be up at 2 a.m? You most likely were strolling in from a fantastic night out that probably involved dinner, dancing and a fancy dress.  Well,  I can say with certainty that nowadays when I’m looking at the clock and it says 2 a.m. I’m angry, annoyed and the only thing that’s dancing is my brain with the three thousand things that I have on the agenda of what I’m doing the next day!!

Botox Stops Underarm Sweat!

BOTOX:  Wrinkle miracle cure & underarm sweat-buster extraordinaire! Who knew? 

Let’s be honest: When most women, including us, think of Botox , they usually think of their faces, not their underarms. Well ladies, we have news for you. Believe it or not, Botox can safely reduce underarm sweat for up to six months!

Considering the crazy heat waves this summer, we thought it apropos to show you how Botox can keep you sweat-free and bring lasting relief to the more than a million people who suffer from an embarrassing condition called “axillary hyperhidrosis,” excessive underarm sweat.  People with this condition sweat up to 4x more than normal in order to maintain a normal body temperature, and they often suffer from difficulty in social situations and say it significantly interferes with their daily activities. However, as moms we know there are many situations that we face everyday that make us sweat!

We know, you’re wondering if it’s safe.  Apparently, it is!  In 2004, the FDA approved Botox for treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (a.k.a you’re sweating a lot!) that can’t be resolved with prescription creams or antiperspirants. In studies, researchers found that after the first treatment, 82% of patients had up to a 75% reduction in sweat production in four weeks after the injection. They also found that the treatment had a positive effect on the patients’ quality of life by easing the social stigma of sweat.

Call us crazy (it wouldn’t be the first time), but we had to check this out for ourselves.  We had the pleasure of giving this lovely treatment a try at the Beverly Hills office of Dr. Rady Rahban, M.D. F.A.C.S. Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon.  After a little numbing cream to take the edge off, and a few pricks to our underarms (okay, quite a few pricks to our underarms), we were transformed into sweat-free moms in less than 2 weeks. It worked!!  We can say that both of us,  after undergoing this treatment, are part of that 82%.  No sweating. Really.

Minimal pain, TONS of gain!

If you’re on the fence about this, or if you’ve done this before, send us an email or leave a comment below.  We’ll answer any questions you may have and would love to hear about your experience with this treatment.

Check out our video, have a laugh, and see how botox can make you sweat-free too (and save you some dry-cleaning $ at the same time!)

Thank you again, Dr. Rahban!  This was amazing!

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 »
