Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani is the perfect gift on his special day!

Acqua Di Gio Acqua Di Gio

Father’s Day can be stressful. Of course, you can just purchase another “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug, and he probably would say he loves it! But why not get him something unique. He can enjoy it everyday and so can everyone else! The perfect Father’s Day gift is Acqua Di Gio Giorgio Armani Cologne. It is a light, fresh splash of aquatic, citrus fragrance. A modern classic from a memorable Italian designer. It starts with a brisk and cool calabrian bergamot, green tangerine and neroli, and gradually grows deeper and richer with the notes of rose, rosemary, jasmine petal, persimmon, and Indonesian patchouli. A top purchase for the dad in your life who probably taught you how to ride your first bike, play catch, or how to fish. A very sophisticated scent for a very important man in your life. Not too heavy, just richly divine and oh so manly! It is one of the most impressive, long lasting aquatic scents on the market. Every dad would most certainly like receiving Acqua Di Gio as a gift on his special day!  1.7oz. $51.99 / 3.4oz. $71.99 / 6.7oz. $102.99

The DBelt Pro is perfect for exercise and for everyday life!

The DBelt Pro is perfect for exercise and for everyday life!


After trying and loving the DBelt Original, I did not hesitate to test out the DBelt Pro.  I honestly love both but being a hardcore workout nut, the DBelt Pro is suitable for me when I conquer my intense workouts!  For example:  Ready to run a half of marathon race, my family did not want to arrive at 6:30 am with me for registration before the race and then patiently wait around 3 hours until the race started.   They promised to be there to cheer me on at the finish line.  What is a runner to do with all their belongings and no one to hold and trust them with…. Well, thank you DBelt Pro because I had my keys to my car, my driver’s license, my insurance card, my cell phone and cash and no one to free me from my valuable belongings.  I placed everything in my DBelt Pro and ran the race with not a worry in the world.  The DBelt was comfortable, fashionable and held on to my valuables!  Even after 13 miles, no chafing!   I love when products do their job!  The DBelt Pro has a thinner cut of hi-tech, water resistant, polyester/spandex fabric which rest lower on your hips so you are able to have greater movement.  The DBelt is guaranteed to carry all your important items and ensure stability even with the endurance of any hardcore workouts like running, high impact aerobics, cross fit training, rock climbing, just to name a few.

The DBelt Pro has Xtra-Dry fabric which transports moisture from the skin to the belt’s exterior keeping you sweat free and comfortable. You are cooler and drier longer!  The DBelt Pro is bounce free keeping my belongings snug and secure.   The three pockets are lined with moisture-resistant material to keep your electronics and essentials dry.  It has a slide in velcro-secured pocket for phone access – large enough for the iPhone 6 Plus size.  It has a zippered essentials pocket for keys, credit cards, driver’s license and cash for safely.  The DBelt Pro is designed for both women and men — available in sizes from P to XXL.   Comes in a variety of colors!  After the race, my family left for home and I stayed for the big cook-out and a drink (I deserved it).  I changed out of my running gear and into dry clothes but kept my DBelt Pro belt on to hold my valuables so my hands were free ….  one hand for my hamburger and the other for my drink.  My metal that I received from the road race was also stored away in my DBelt Pro safe and sound!   The DBelt Pro is perfect for exercise and for everyday life!  Purchase yours now at

Sock it to me — the best gift ever: K. Bell Socks !

Sock it to me — the best gift ever: K. Bell Socks !


What do you get for someone who has it all or what do you want to receive as a gift assuming you don’t need a single thing!  My children were so undecided as to what to get me for a special Mother’s Day gift this year.  Many ideas popped up into their busy minds …… chocolates (NO, always trying to eat healthy), perfume (have so many bottles, I could open my own perfume store), flowers (allergies), Italy trip (too expensive)!  How about SOCKS!  Not just any socks but K. Bell Socks.  Socks are a lot like shoes, an everyday essential which need to be comfortable yet colorful and different to pull together an outfit!   I have a passion for socks …… unique patterns, pretty colors, different styles and of course high-quality material!  I love all the different styles, crew socks, footie socks, holiday socks or over the knee socks, you can choose from whether you need fun in your life or some sophistication.  K. Bell has everything for everyone in your family.  My favorite is the Women’s Leg Sleeve or called Sport Legwarmer.  I wear these socks running and working out!  They are so comfortable and cozy but not bulky.  I also decided to wear them lounging around my house!  Many socks I purchased in the past restrict my legs and ankles and when I take them off, I literally have indentation from the tightness.  I hate that so much!  I end up throwing the brand new socks away in disappointment.   My second best sock is the Leopard Panel Knee High Sock.  It adds style to any outfit.  Believe it or not they actually make your legs appear thinner because of where the leopard panels are located.  Flair and comfort thats what you receive with K. Bell Socks!



They have funky slippers socks, feeling like a kid again!  There is not one Novelty sock I don’t want from cute cow patterns to musical notes.  Love them all!!!  After I received my K. Bell socks, I went directly to and purchased The Girls series socks for a few of my stylish, sophisticated female friends and family.  The Girls series are socks that celebrate women’s passions.  I bought the wedding girl socks for my niece about to get married.  She loved them so much, she is planning to wear them with her going away outfit!  Wine girl socks for my friends who only drink wine!  Texting girl socks for my daughter who obviously can’t live a second without texting!  There is so much to choose from ….. women’s, men’s, sport, holiday, kids and Laurel Burch Design which K. Bell partnered with 15 years ago (all of Laurel Burch Design are original artwork representing her artistic vision).  So spread some comfort, style and a smile, give the gift of K. Bell socks to someone!  Easy gifting that the receiver will appreciate and wear !!!

For Healthy Skin that Glows, the Secret is Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar

For Healthy Skin that Glows, the Secret is Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar


Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar is an unique, 100% natural woodsy and floral scented bar.  This bar smells so good, taken right out of the box.  The scent is light, invigorating and clean, not like a heavy perfume fake smell.   It awaken your senses to refresh your day!  Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar left my face and body deeply clean but plenty soft!  At first, I was concerned it was just going to be a great smelling bar and not a exfoliating bar because it was smooth when I took it out of the box.  Well, it definitely fooled me!  After lathering the bar up with some water, it had a gritty texture.  The right touch and feel, a lot like the texture of a washcloth.  No painful intense scrubbing to exfoliate.  The unique blend of sustainable Brazilian ingredients creates the gritty texture that removes dead cells, flakey skin and impurities.  Teadora Nourishing Exfoliating Bar comes with a combination of powerful oils, butters and exotic agents such as Buriti, Cupuacu, Clay and Acai seeds which are full of free radical-fighting antioxidants, vitamins, and oleic and fatty acids that help to purify and moisturize your skin.  The key ingredients in this great Nourishing Exfoliating Bar:  Buriti is an ingredient which contains the highest concentration of natural vitamin A among fruits and vegetables.  It also contains Vitamin E, Vitamin C and antioxidants to help promote skin healing.  It has also been used for generations as a natural UV ray protectant.   Cupuacu is nature’s strongest moisturizers.  It is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential nutrients which improve the appearance, elasticity, and texture of skin.  Acai is the the most famous of Brazilian fruits which are high in antioxidants and vitamins to protect the skin from damage by UV rays, pollution and stress.  I have sensitive skin so I need to know what is washing my face and body.  Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar was gentle yet exfoliated enough that I saw a visible difference in the tone and texture of my skin.  The moisturizer in this bar does not leave a filmy feeling at all and it soaks right into the skin like a good moisturizer should.  The surface of my skin glows and I look refreshed!   I just love all the complements I have been receiving since I began using Teadora Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Exfoliating Bar.  A perfect “pick me up” for beautiful, healthy looking skin!

SAVANNAH BEE, My hands have never looked better

SAVANNAH BEE, My hands have never looked better


I am always on the lookout for a great hand cream to use during the cold winter months or after gardening or after my hands spend a lot of time in water.  In other words, I need to replenish and nourish my raw, hard working hands.  Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Hand Cream is perfect for dry damaged hands but is also gentle enough to use as an “all over” dry skin remedy.  There is instant relief for my cracked thumbs.  It does not burn when I apply like other lotions do.  It has a natural scent to it with no heavy perfume scent which I love!!  Smells nice not overpowering.  I like to describe the scent as a warm pecan and berry scent.  It makes me happy as I am very sensitive to strong perfume smells!  It naturally protects and hydrates brittle, rough hands with essential nutrients directly from the hive. Beeswax creates a natural barrier between your skin and the cold, dry air.  It seems almost solid in the jar but as soon as you scoop it out and apply it to your skin, it melts like butter.  I love the texture.  It goes on easy and sinks into your skin.  It does not leave your skin greasy or sticky.  It has a beautiful, peach scented texture which absorbs, moisturizes quickly into your skin.  I love to apply it on my hands using moisturizing gloves right before I go to bed.  I also use it on the rough patches of the heels of my feet and my dry, flakey elbows.  In the morning my hands, elbows and feet are super soft and healthy!  Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Hand Cream lasts a long time and you rarely need to reapply unless you wash your hands.  The beeswax helps to lock in your natural skin oil!  Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Hand Cream has pecan and peach kernel oils and anti-oxidizing blueberry extract to soften and heal skin.   When my jar of Savannah Bee Hand Cream is running low, I will definitely be repurchasing a new one!  Terrific product that I must have at all times!  My hands have never looked better!  You can purchase Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Hand Cream at —  comes in 3.4 oz. glass jar or 1.7 fl oz tube

Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball is on the top of my list !

Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball is on the top of my list !


My favorite scent is Vanilla !!!  I have been searching for a mature vanilla perfume that was not fake, artificial, foody, or chemical smell. Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball is pure vanilla with a tint of fresh lemon.  The roller-ball is so convenient.  I love using the roller-ball!! The main benefit to using a roller-ball is the no waste to the product.  The amount of perfume that comes out with one swipe is pretty sizeable and a perfect amount.  Roll it on the area you want to apply and smell fresh and sensual!  The packaging is travel friendly.  I can place it in my purse, desk drawer or even my glove compartment in my car.  The delicious, warm scent is long lasting.  This is one of the best and sexiest vanilla and lemon scents I have worn!  Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball does an amazing job of providing richness and depth as this warms and becomes part of your skin.  You can wear it on its own or it makes a wonderful base to complement to other notes.  I thought the lemon scent would be overpowering and it is not!  I got so many compliments from Lavanila Vanilla Lemon scent.  No parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, silicones, propylene glycol, mineral oils, synthetic dyes, sulfates, chemical sunscreens or aluminum….. Just juicy lemon blend combined with pure Madagascar vanilla for a sophisticated, clean fragrance.  Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball is on the top of my list!

It’s time to bump up the moisturizer with “Made from Earth” Creme Therapy

It’s time to bump up the moisturizer with “Made from Earth” Creme Therapy

Made from Earth

“Made From Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy” is a great treatment for healing a dry face or common skin problems.  When the weather gets colder, it is time to bump up the moisturizer.  When I do, I have to be very careful what products I use on my face and my body so they don’t irritate my skin and break out.  “Made from Earth” is a New York company that specializes in only the highest quality of certified organic ingredients and fruits.  The product formulators were looking for solutions to skin problems that were treated with ingredients made from the earth.  “Made From Earth” products are organic, natural, vegan, and cruelty-free.  There are ingredients in nature that can be used to heal common skin conditions.  So stop applying chemicals to your skin, when the earth provides us with so many natural alternatives and “Made From Earth” products bottled them up just for you!  The top three common skin care concerns which “Made from Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme therapy” are best to relieve:

Eczema…… you cannot use just any moisturizer on eczema. Eczema causes excessively dry skin, due to the body’s inability to maintain moisture.  Aloe Vera is a moisturizer that does not clog pores.

Rosacea….. is a fairly common condition.  The redness on the skin is due to an inflammation or irritation of the skin.  Jojoba Oil is a great option for winter rosacea sufferers, due to its emollient properties keeping the skin moist, and preventing redness from windburn or frost.

Combination Skin…… some areas of their face are oily while others areas are dry.  This makes it a nightmare to find a skin care product that works best for the entire face.  Some cleansers may be too drying while some moisturizers may be too moisturizing.  Aloe Vera is an excellent moisturizer allowing the skin to retain the moisture, while ensuring it is not oily.  Jojoba oil is also a non-greasy, fast absorbing ingredient option for moisturizing combination skin.

I applied “Made From Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy” to my face, I was amazed!  Spending a lot of time in the cold snow shoeing, I needed a rich, natural moisturizer.   It contains highly concentrated amounts of Aloe Vera and Rooibos Tea Leaves.  Rooibos is a powerful antioxidant while the Jojoba nut provides anti-bacteria and preservative properties.  The custom formula of Aloe juice and Jojoba Nut oil create a powerful creme that attacks free radicals and limits their damaging effect on your skin.  It has a light texture that quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving a gentle, natural, smell behind.  No strong perfume smell which I hate!   I have noticed a significantly change in the texture of my skin since I have been applying the moisturizer.  It replenishes without leaving any residue!  “Made From Earth” uses no synthetic coloring agents, fragrances, paraffin, any petroleum products or synthetic preservatives.  Also “Made From Earth” recommends keeping the aloe products in the refrigerator for a cooling effect on the skin, as well as increasing the shelf life of the product.  After spending the entire day in the sun at the beach, I felt my skin was somewhat burned.  After showering, I used “Made From Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy” and it had an instant cooling effect on my skin.   It added the needed moisture to my skin that just made it feel really healthy, recharged and fresh!  You can rest easy knowing you are getting the purest, safest ingredients in your skin cream!  I was impressed with “Made From Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy….. no breakouts, wrinkles lessened, softer skin and replenished moisture and HIGHEST QUALITY OF CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS!!  Cost:  $24.99 8oz. bottle
