Live Infinitely Infusion Water Bottle Review

It is a well-known fact that most people do not drink enough water to keep our bodies functioning at their maximum.

The Natural Dentist Cavity Zapper Toothpaste Review

Believe it or not, toothpaste can be a tricky thing for kids. Toothpaste can cause behavioral problems in kids, rashes or be just plain nasty tasting. I had a first-hand experience with a friend’s child who once they switched off toothpaste with SLS, artificial colors and ingredients in it, the child’s bad attitude and disruptive behavior stopped within 2 weeks. So I know how important these product decisions can be. I have always...

While I do not claim to be an expert in the area of honey, I have done a bit of research on the topic. I have written about Manuka Honey from New Zealand, which I love.

Vitamin D

I grew up in the sunscreen era! Commercial after commercial warned us to stay out of the sun and always wear sunscreen. So I was confused as to why it was bad for me to be vitamin D deficient, just as 85% of the population in the USA is deficient in vitamin D today. Perhaps the commercials were wrong… What is Vitamin D? #Vitamin D has been overlooked for so long, yet is #vital to our #wellness. http://t.co/RtshxalqMd #loveyourself...

Best Breakfast in London

Upon the advice of a dear friend who once lived in London, I tried Kensington Square Kitchen for breakfast. I was told it was the best breakfast in London! My friend was right! The restaurant is painted a very pleasing shade of green so I instantly felt relaxed upon entering. We were quickly seated and our orders taken by a very pleasant person. Who then brought our teas and some orange juice. Seriously, some of the best fresh orange...

Brilliant Wine

Recently I posted a study on my Facebook page in regards to wine being better for us than going to the gym! While this is amazing news, I think we should take a deeper look into what wine does! The Latin Times reports: “Jason Dyck and other science researchers in the University of Alberta in Canada found that red wine, nuts and grapes have a complex called resveratrol which improves heart, muscle and bone functions; the same way...
