Want To Look And Feel Younger? Read This First!

With 2019 already underway, it’s quite shocking to think that we all counted down to the turn of the millennium 19 years ago…A mere 10 years ago, the world was shocked with Michael Jackson suddenly passed away, Lady Gaga had released the incredible “Bad Romance” and people where still dancing with their iPod.

It's not that I don't have faith in CoverGirl (and its awesome formulas), it's just that I've found very few liquid eyeliners can live up to such a loaded claim. I got my hands on the new Cove...

Intention, Action and Accountability to Accomplish Your Goals

I don’t create New Year’s Resolutions  because, for myself and most others I know, they don’t last. As we have just crossed the threshold from 2018 to 2019, this topic is fresh on people’s radar. Diets, gym membership and smoking cessation programs take upticks at this time of year. At my gym where I work out 3-4 times a week, I notice that the machines are more occupied right before and right after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve/Day. Does motivation run higher at those times...

Blast From the Past: new year’s resolution – tea and exercise

How many of us made yet another list of New Year’s resolutions? For those who did, I suspect that adding exercise to your routine was prominently placed on that list. No one will dispute that exercise is good for your health. But what can you do each and every day that is also healthy for you? Drink fluids.
