Here's an  interesting forward my mom sent me ~who knew the timing effects things-
Drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the Human body:

  • 2 glasses of water after waking up   helps activate internal organs
  •  1 glass of water  30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
  •  1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
  • 1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

Yeah!!! Two of my favorite products have released a tube size containers. 
1. Smith's Rosebud Salve: Found at Sephora $6
I use this as hand cream -it's perfect for cuticles.

2. Carmex Found at Walgreens    Sale $4.99
 Carmex  for over 70+ years, people have come to love it, the lip balm like no other. Now, you can get that same healing power for dry skin. REQUEST A SAMPLE HERE

Taste like SONIC Classic Limeade 

The recipe:
2 cans frozen lime concentrate
1 2-liter lemon lime soda (I heard 7 Up is the best)
1 Jar maraschino cherries
Put lime concentrate in a pitcher. Pour the lemon lime soda over it. Pour in the cherry juice and stir it all up.  Add cherries and fresh cut lime.
Enjoy.  Smile

What a cool website

Have you ever loved a song on youtube- but there no link or name of the artist. Now you can find out the song title, artist and download mp3 from this cool website-called MP3IFY.COM   

When I heard this song in the "Social Network" movie called Creep - it gave me chills- it fit the movie trailer perfectly.  I knew the song name called Creep by Radiohead but I didn't know the choir name - so I went to mp3ify.com and sure enough it came up 

Scala & Kolacny Brothers -Creep

This Stuff is Amazing ~AZTEC HEALING CLAY MASK

    I saw this stuff at my local Health Food store and had to grab it- I have seen it on youtube videos and blog post and everyone raves about this clay mask.  So I was ecstatic to finally find it!  So if you live in Huntsville, AL pick it up at the new store called  Earthfare 
  Most health food stores, like Trader Joes and Whole Foods, have the Aztec Secret clay in stock.  My tub was $8 at a local natural food shop and it will last me over a year.  Trust THIS IS A MUST HAVE ITEM! Watch this tutorial/reviewTalking click here 
You make your own clay masks by mixing a scoop of the clay with equal parts of apple cider vinegar or water. 
Apply to face. Wait about 15 minutes. And rinse with warm water.

 I  can't recommend it more highly, but mix it with vinegar, not water, to get the best effect.

How to Capture Those Precious Moments with Your Kids

    Since having a baby all I have been hearing is cherish each moment because "they pass bye so fast"~ So how do you make sure that you savor and remember each milestone?
Well I have found a few online I loved....

~  Since I'm a photographer I'm going to try really hard to capture each moment of Ivy's milestones by taking a picture of her weekly or even daily.  Tip- always carry a camera with you even if it's just a throw away camera because you never know when that precious moment may arrive.  I'm  hoping to do a Custom Photo Book for her each year.   Try Lulu.com or Blurb.com

this one

 Freezing a moment in time

Each year I have my kids make a tape recording about that year's birthday. I've been doing this since they were able to speak, so I've accumulated a library of tapes from the age of 2 to present day. (My kids are now 13 and 14). I plan to make copies of the tapes and give them to the kids as a birthday present later in life when they're able to appreciate the history. 

The kids are free to say whatever they want, but I provide specific guidelines or talking points to help direct the conversation. For example:

•    How old are you today? 
•    How do you plan to spend your birthday? 
•    What is the most fun thing you did all year? 
•    What thing wasn't so much fun this year? 
•    What are your favorite foods?
•    Who is your best friend?
•    What do you like best about school?
•    What do you like least about school?
•    Sing your favorite song
•    Tell me a funny joke
•    How do you like to spend your spare time?
•    What kinds of activities are you involved in?
•    What do you want to be when you grow up?

The same thing could work, of course, on videotape and may be even more effective since you also have a visual aid.  via web

Operation Beautiful

While running around this morning doing my new mom routine(Surprised smilein the background I had on The Today Show- Meredith was talking to this young girl named Caitlin who started this brilliant idea-  leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store.  Caitlin also has a blog and a new book- here
Blog: click here

Loving your body after baby is a difficult thing to do-this what I'm facing right now. I've had a hard time looking in the mirror at my post partum belly with all the stretch marks and my lovely C-Section scar- but I'm coming to terms with it- taking it day by day and realizing this what gave me my beautiful baby girl Ivy. 
As the video says stop the negative talk- this what I need to do for myself so when my daughter is older she see's this message- Love Yourself~Both Inside & Out...
