Drink… to your HAPPY HEART COCKTAIL!
Here’s to heart healthy drinking! Yes, there is such a thing. As most of us know, cranberries have many healing properties. One of those happens to be a key part to helping alleviate cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association.
Cranberries are filled with flavonoids. No, you’re not going to hallucinate… but they do help with urinary tract infections, gastric ulcers, decrease gum disease and lower LDL cholesterol levels “bad”
So… drink to your health! Drink to your heart! A cranberry cocktail that’ll have you head over heels in LOVE!
HAPPY HEART COCKTAIL
Combine Cranberry Vodka, Cranberry Juice & Ice in a shaker.
Pour into a low ball glass.
Finish with a splash of club soda & a squeeze of lime.
You’re exhausted… wiped out… You’re absolutely not getting enough sleep at night. You’re overwhelmed and the kids aren’t making it any easier on you. Your brain is on overload. Let’s face it, you’re stressed out.
Most mornings before your feet even hit the ground you’re already thinking about packing lunches, who has their backpack? and did I throw that wet load of laundry into the dryer last night?!
Reading this will probably even cause your heart to start beating a little faster because you know it’s true.

But while you might feel that you’re solving your stress and anxiety, it’s actually only a farce. That momentary feeling of relief is essentially doing more harm than good. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing more than I love than to dig into a chocolate cake! But sometimes you just need to listen to what your body needs and give it some help when it comes to de-stressing!
Take two deep breaths… come on, do it… breath in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out… and read on as your stress levels are about to fall into oblivion!

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 »
