Maintaining Your GLOW

Maintaining Your Glow – it’s easier than you think!

Pregnancy, postpartum, nursing, and everything in between not only messes with hormones, but it also can change your skin.  Couple that with changes in the weather and your skin can become overly dry and dull.  The glow may be gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone forever.

Megaformer Pilates – How It’s Helping My Rheumatoid Arthritis!

2 months ago I decided to try out a Megaformer Pilates class (Lagree Method) at Pilates Plus in Yorba Linda. I was nervous. You see, 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) after unexplained swelling and pain in my knees resulted in me seeing various doctors. My RA was managed pretty well until a few months ago when the swelling started up again. I was at my wit’s end. 

The Mental Load And My Mental Health

I first read about the mental load a year ago – and I felt like everything I had been feeling for the last 7 years since having children was completely and utterly validated.

The metal load and my mental health went hand in hand.

Why Is Everyone Talking About Collagen?

If you’re anything like me, then you’ve heard countless friends and family talking about Collagen.  It’s in every store from Costco to Target and everywhere in between.

So what exactly is Collagen?

Screen Time Is Making Me A Momster

I have a confession to make – screen time is making me a momster.  I can feel it happening and I don’t like it.

There are endless talks about screen time in children.  Even pediatricians ask about it.  But what about us?  What about adults?

Mindset Shift – How A Thankfulness Journal Changed My Perspective

I began writing a thankfulness journal not too long ago after a friend of mine was talking about how she started writing down what she was thankful for every day.  See, at the time that I was talking to her I was in a pretty woe is me state of mind.

I have to be honest, there are a lot of things that I want in life that I don’t have.

Caring For Our Children Shouldn’t Cost Us Everything

Caring for our children shouldn’t cost us everything.

It shouldn’t cost us our health, our mental health, or all of our finances. But somehow, as moms, we seem to allow caring for everyone else be at the top of our priority list. 

The Essential Healthy Living Checklist For Moms

Healthy living can mean different things to different people.  But there are a few things that are universally true to help maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially when you’re also working hard to raise healthy children too.

Can You REALLY Reverse Sun Damage?

As we get older the amount of time we’ve spent in the sun can be seen on our face – and I’m not talking about a sun-kissed tan, I’m talking about sunspots and wrinkles.  Not only can the spots and wrinkles age us, but they can also get worse as we get older.

The question is – can they actually be reversed?

And the answer, happily, is yes!

How Do You Know When It’s Time To Ask For Help?

As moms, we can often feel like we have to do everything on our own.  If we aren’t the sole caregiver we aren’t a good enough mom. If we aren’t making from scratch baby food and harvesting our own crop then we’ve failed.

Today’s mom is under so much pressure.

Lurking Chemicals In Your Beauty Products: What To Watch Out For

Chemicals – we are surrounded and engulfed by them on a daily basis. Although everything is essentially made up of chemicals, it is well known that some have more of a harmful effect that others.  Did you know that, on average, women place over 200 chemicals on their bodies through the products they use… daily!?? 

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Sex.  Moms still have sex. Moms also joke about sex, or rather about never having sex. But is it me, or has sex changed a lot since having children? And not just because I pushed an actual human out of my body, but the daily grind of having children can make sex turn into a chore.

And no one wants to do chores.

So, what’s the deal?  

Loving Yourself, You’re The Only YOU There Is

Loving yourself. There seems to be a lot of talk about how we need to love ourselves.  And I agree we do!  But it’s not that simple.

There are so many factors that go into the ability to love ourselves.  Whether it be unreconciled trauma, on-going trauma, illness, relationship struggles, anxiety, and depression – the list could go on and on.

Microneedling – My Journey And Why I Chose To Try It

MICRONEEDLING. It sounds terrifying does it?! 2 months ago I decided I wanted to do something about the texture of my skin and so I visited Facial Aesthetic Concepts in Aliso Viejo. I had a great consultation with Cassandra, one of their RNs and she recommended microneedling. Here’s all the juicy details:
