The Best DIY Body Butter

Written By: Denise Leduc

When it comes to having the best moisturizer, you don't have to spend a lot of money, or buy products full of ingredients you can't pronounce. Sometimes, the simplest is the best.

While at the gym, I have actually had a woman reach out, rub my arm and say, "Oh my gosh, your skin is so soft." It was a little strange, but I was only too happy to share my skin care secret - coconut oil.

Day 27 of 30 to a More Organized You

Today is our twenty-seventh day to having a more organized month.
Let's do this!


Challenge
Document it.

Gather important family papers, such as birth certificates and insurance policies, in one place. It's important to know where to locate them in an emergency.

Days 71 - 83 ~ Chaos

Well... talk about a length of time that went up in smoke. *poof* There it went. Yep.

Let me try to recap the last thirteen days, so we can start on a clean slate tomorrow morning...

  • I've been to 3 more interviews for one company in particular, who has already told me they want to hire me, but they are waiting on the background check (which I'll pass with flying colors) & proof at the police department I volunteered at for four years.
  • That police department that I volunteered at for four years, hasn't been contacting me or my potential future career in almost two weeks. They are the only thing standing in between me and providing a life for my son and I. The volunteer coordinator adored me, until I left. So, I had to go above her and e-mail her Sgt. We'll see if that does anything.

Day 26 of 30 to a More Organized You

Today is our twenty-sixth day to having a more organized month.
Let's do this!


Challenge
Write away.

Today's the day to catch up on letter writing. Remember, a short note is better than none at all.

Stay on top of future correspondences with a stack of note cards kept in your glove compartment. Instead of fuming in traffic, pour out your heart to an old friend.

How To Incorporate Your Favorite Color Into Your Winter Wardrobe

Written By: Hope Jennings

The cold months tend to zap us of any inspiration to wear bold, beautiful, colorful pieces, and suddenly we find ourselves in head-to-toe black, brown, and navy that can't classify as anything other than "neutral." While those shades certainly have their place in our wardrobes, there is such as thing as too much of a good thing.


Unfortunately, if you don't feel like a million bucks, you will dress that way too. The reverse is also true. If you walk around in black all the time, eventually you'll start to feel black on the inside. While it might be okay for a short time, after a while it just becomes depressing. Clothes, in my opinion, are supposed to make you feel better about yourself!

Well, I'm here to help. Inspired by our own affinity for wearing far too many neutrals in the winter, here are some of my tips on how to inject color into your winter wardrobe this year.
