You've all heard the saying that beauty comes from the inside, right? Well, it's true...In more ways than one! Have you ever seen a woman who is just glowing? (And no, I don't mean the pregnant glow!) Thick, shiny hair. Dewy, flawless skin. Just an overall appearance of health and femininity? Chances are, that gorgeous woman takes very good care of herself, starting on the inside!
There are a lot of different supplements that can actually improve your physical appearance on a cellular level. Without a good nutritional routine, no amount of primping will give that glowing, gorgeous look. Unless, of course, you're a model and have your photos airbrushed to remove imperfections. Or a Kardashian, who just happens to be annoyingly perfect to begin with!
Some of these ingredients are well-known, like Collagen. This important ingredient actually works to re-build your skin, allowing it to appear plumper, and even younger. (Yes, really!) Collagen is "beauty's protein" and not only helps the skin, but helps keep hair and nails looking their best as well. Collagen can be found in gelatin, and is offered in many supplements. They're not all created equal though, and I will get into that in a moment.
Another ingredient that does wonders for the appearance is Hyaluronic Acid. This is collagen's partner in crime, so to speak. While the collagen repairs and rebuilds, Hyaluronic Acid hydrates. It has literally been called Nature's Moisturizer.This is what gives the skin a more youthful look, and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Add some Vitamin C to the mix to enhance performance , and you have one powerful and effective way to enhance beauty from the inside out.
Sadly, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C are hard to find all in one place. And who wants to take about a zillion supplements in a day? I am a mom, and I simply don't have time for that. My days are spent trying to chase down toddlers, stay one step ahead of a sneaky teen, train puppies, keep on top of a blog and the housework, and feed my family...So I would never remember to take a ton of supplements every day.
That is why NeoCell is a God-send in my life. I have worked with this awesome company several times now, and not only are they a joy to work with, their products are amazing.

Okay, so everyone in my real life knows how much I love the products from Nature's Sleep. I love my pillow, my old, open-toed slippers that my Yorkie, Trouble, ultimately destroyed, and I absolutely adore my memory foam mattress! (Seriously, I sleep better now than I ever did on my previous mattresses!)
So when I got the opportunity to review a different style of slippers from Nature's Sleep, I jumped at the chance. I freely admit that I have been wearing my old, chewed up pair because they were still too comfy to just discard. (Isn't that awful?!)
WELCOME TO THE RED HOT BLENDTEC GIVEAWAY
Most of you have probably known me as an advocate for VitaMix, so why on earth would I be reviewing the Blendtec now? Let me share a story with you about how this BLENDTEC giveaway came about. When I was on vacation in New York City last November 2012, my girlfirend and I were surfing TV channels and happened upon one that was talking about Vitamix and Blendtec. It explained how Vitamix had copied another company's (Blendtec) mixing jar. That case was taken to court and the court agreed with Blendtec. Vitamix lost, and Blendtec from K-Tec, Inc. was awarded a multimillion dollar judgment. I almost had to pull my jaw up from the floor! My friend and I looked at each other, and I asked her, "how can I promote a company that stole another company's design"? If you want the details, you can read more about this federal court ruling here. I will now be affiliating with Blendtec.

Blendtec is offering their Blendtec Designer Series blender with a Wildside Jar and a Twister Jar as a Prize for this Red Hot Blendtec Giveaway! The winner can choose from a base that is Red, Black, White or Champagne and get a Wildside Jar and Twister Jar to use with the base unit. This Prize is valued over $500! Thank you Blendtec!
You have got to watch this funny video from Blendtec: "Does It Blend?"
PICTURE OF THE BLENDTEC BLENDER I CHOSE FOR MY BLENDTEC REVIEW:The Blendtec Designer came in one package with the Wildside Jar, Spatula, and 2 Cookbooks. The Twister Jar came separately. Both were packaged extremely well and nothing was dented or damaged. I was really excited about the cookbook that came with the Blendtec. It is spiral bound and hard sided and someone that is really into eating healthy has put down some fabulous recipes! The recipes are labeled as to whether they are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan, RAW and low sodium recipes as well as regular recipes that require wheat, meat and dairy. There are even recipes for exfoliating and skin care, plus recipes for your pet as well! The recipes also have nutritional and calorie counts. In addition there are recipes for making your own flour. You do NOT need a separate container to make flour like you do for the Vitamix. That is a huge plus in my book. And there are recipes for making your own nut milks. Speaking of nut milks...I decided to see how Blendtec compared with the Vitamix in making Almond Milk since I use alot of home-made almond milk. I was thrilled because the lid of the Blendtec is much easier to use than the lid on the VitaMix. Previously, I had to ask my husband to take the lid off the VitaMix because my arthritic hands could not unlock it. I was shocked at how powerful the Blendtec machine is in comparison. I do not soak the Almonds when I make Almond milk. I use them straight out of the bag. The Blendtec has pre-programmed cycles, so I pressed the cycle for the milk. This machine is fast and powerful! When the cycle ended and I poured the ingredients into the strainer I noticed the feel of the almond pulp was much finer than the other machine and the milk seemed to have more almond flavor. My next comparison was to blend a quick gluten-free bread. I couldn't believe how quickly this machine whizzed this mix together. I pulsed the Blendtec a couple times, scraped down the sides once and hit pulse again and it was done! The bread turned out fabulously and my husband loved the texture and flavor. I have to mention, again, how easy the lid is to handle on these Blendtec containers. I also like the wider container size that has the same volume as the taller Vitamix container. The Blendtec WildSide container is easier for me to handle. The Blendtec also fits on the machine and under my cabinets where the other machine does not. The Twister container is used for tackling thicker dough and comes with a small recipe booklet. There are recipes items that require high speeds or have heavy doughs such as Dairy-Free Ice Creams, pasta dough, pizza dough, nut butters and many other recipes. To test the Twitster Container I made the recipe for Whole Wheat Spinach Pasta but substituted gluten-free flour and I didn't have spinach, so I substituted cilantro. It was a very thick dough but I used the special spatula, Spectacula, as it is called, which made it very easy to remove the ingredients and very easy to clean the container. This dough was very easy to make with the Blendtec, and the noodles held up very well despite using gluten-free flour!

I have 2 toddlers. My daughter, Sophie, is 3 years old, and my son, Xander, just turned 2. So needless to say, bed time in my home can turn into a sticky situation rather quickly. Especially lately. You see, we all came down with whatever mutant cold/flu virus has been going around, and this has greatly disrupted everyone's sleep schedules. The babies had such a hard time sleeping because once they laid down, they started coughing. So of course they woke up and were absolutely miserable, and I woke up to care for them.
To be completely honest, I am still running on very little sleep because 3 weeks of illness has really wreaked havoc on our internal clocks! Rather than falling asleep at decent, normal hours, the kids have become night owls. I have been trying everything to encourage them to go to sleep at a more acceptable time. That's why I was so excited to learn about Shushybye Baby.
On Sunday, January 27, BabyFirst, America’s television destination for parent-child interactive entertainment will debut the new season of its popular music-centric series Shushybye Baby. (BabyFirst is available on DirecTV, Dish Network and Comcast.)

As a Pull-Ups First Flush Ambassador, I recently got the opportunity to host a great "Potty Party"! The awesome folks at Pull-Ups sent me some great party kits full of coupons, progress charts, stickers, and of course, noise-makers and adorable party hats!
We had our little soiree a couple of weeks ago, and we had several neighborhood kids over. Sadly, many of the parents did not want their children's images to be published for privacy reasons which I have to respect, so I will be featuring pictures of my own toddlers partying it up. I completely understood their concerns, especially since I am "that parent" that won't allow my teen to have a Facebook or get online without complete and total supervision. While this threw a bit of a wrench in things, it certainly didn't stop us from having fun!
We had a great time sharing potty-training stories and watching the kids' excitement as they did the Potty Dance. (Yes, I just happened to have that DVD on hand already!) We also watched "Once Upon A Potty", which is a great potty-learning DVD that has been a God-send in helping my kids learn not only about potty-training, but also their own bodies! Even my soon to be 13 year old benefited from this DVD when he was a toddler!!
