Snack Healthy And #WIN a Bestowed Box + Coupon

Disclosure: I received a Bestowed Box to help facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. Last month, my husband and I celebrated 15 years of marriage!

Getting back into the swing of things was like slipping on an old pair of shoes. Sure, our muscles ached…but as the saying goes “no pain, no gain“. One thing we have…

Tips To Enjoy A Healthy Summer Break And Avoid The Summer Slide

Summer is in full swing which means routines have changed. While in school, children are on more structured activity and eating schedules plus their brains are working more.

Focus On The Helpers

Yesterday, I had a running accident. As I was hitting 5 miles in a local neighborhood, something went wrong. For a moment I was distracted, I heard someone in their yard/garage area and immediately looked up (sometimes cars back out and cannot see runners due to landscaping, dogs are sometimes off leashes, etc.). The next thing I knew, a lady was by my side asking “are you OK”. My pace had picked up for the final leg of my run since I was on smooth sidewalks (prior I was running…

FRAM Fresh Breeze Is Helping Me Kick Allergies In The Face #FresherCar #cbias

Allergies…just saying the word makes my head want to explode. It’s been a tough allergy season for my entire family, we are all in agony and misery. I personally have been to multiple doctors over the past couple of weeks and have gone through two prescription strength eye drops. I also take a daily allergy pill, decongestants and headache meds. The doctor said to recognize my allergy triggers and avoid. That’s tough when I walk outside and my eyes swell, turn red and tears stream down my face. There’s no way to avoid life with…
