Get A Healthy Glow Year Round

I'm one of those people who don't tan. Both because it takes a lot for my skin to actually tan, and because I want to avoid sun damaged skin as much as possible. Looking much older than I am due to sun exposure isn't on my bucket list. Neither is skin cancer. So I tend to stay in the shade when I'm outdoors, and still put sunscreen on. I am also super pale, and still want some way to get a little bit of color to my skin without all the damage and unhealthy effects the sun brings. There's sunless tanner and sprays, but lets face it, you still look orange with those and I'm not trying to be one of Willy Wonka's Oompa Loompas. So what's the solution?

Creative Lettering Sketchbook

I love to doodle and I remember when I was younger I would doodle fancy lettering in my notes to friends or on my notebooks and folders. I still sometimes get fancy with my lettering when I make out my Christmas cards each year. I have to say, I'm not quite as good as I use to be, probably because I don't practice my lettering as often as I use to. The Draw, Color, & Sticker Creative Lettering Sketchbook is serious fun and a great way to practice lettering designs and techniques.

Throwing A Ghostbusters Birthday Party

My son has been absolutely obsessed with Ghostbusters for two years now. Ever since he saw his first episode of Extreme Ghostbusters on Hulu. His birthday theme last year was Blaze and the Monster Machines already and it was too late to change the theme, so my husband and I secretly hoped that he still liked Ghostbusters the following year so we could do that as his birthday theme. My children are mini nerds and are certainly mini versions of my husband and I. It runs pretty deep in the family, actually. My brother-in-law has a Ghostbusters costume he wears regularly complete with an awesome proton pack, and recently he even purchased a car to turn into the Ecto-1.

Color For Calm: Your Daily Stress Relief

Contains affiliate links

My husband and I are currently working on my office, which will be in our remodeled basement and already I've collecting things to go on my desk down in the "babe cave". One of the things I have made clear that I need is a calender. I've become tired of looking at my phone to see what day it is or see days ahead, and our regular calendar is hanging in the kitchen. Not really ideal when you are using it for work. I also really love to color. So I mean, yeah, I was a little bit excited about this new desk calender.

Crazy Cups Coffee: Peanut Butter Cup

One of my favorite flavor combinations is hands down peanut butter and chocolate. I could eat my weight in peanut butter cups, but I probably shouldn't. Can you imagine the calories? Crazy Cups Coffee to the rescue! They made a peanut butter cup coffee that is.... wait for it....

Find Your Inner Peace With Chakras Insence Sticks

I haven't used incense sticks since the 90's, so in all honestly I didn't even realize they still existed or that anyone still used them. I am, however, real big into relaxation and meditation, so I gave these a chance.
