If you are always stuck at work or at home, this company might help you to keep looking good even when you are too busy or for a reason or another you cannot go out.

Best Gluten Free Brownie Mix: A Taste Test Review

I, like many these days, have had to go (mostly) gluten free. I don't have a serious health problem or Celiac, but I am affected by gluten and wheat, so I avoid when I can.

But...I love baked goods as a treat so what to do?

Try and test the myriad of gluten free mixes to find ones that suit my taste buds as well as my system. So far we've (my husband who has had to go mostly gluten-free just because that's what I bake now and he loves to eat) found a winner.

 Our winner is the Glutenh Free Pantry Chocolate Truffle Brownie Mix. This is the first "mix" I tried when baking gluten free and we were so suprised at how fudgie and decadent this was. It made some of the best brownies ever--with our without gluten.
So, when I read the GlutenFreeGoddess site and she professed to love Pamela's brownie mix, I thought I'd give it a try. At a recent trip to Whole Foods I noticed Pamela's was $2.00 more than the Gluten Free Pantry. I reasoned it must be worth it. Wro…

Zumba or Zumba GOLD: Which to choose? My review at 49

I use Zumba (see my post on it on this blog). I pick and choose between the workouts with my fave being the Rush (what can I say? I like to get it over with!). I thought I'd try Zumba Gold since I'm on the brink of turning another age (let's just say over 49). I workout consistently so I wondered if it would give me the push I needed or be better for me as I age.

Here's my take:

Zumba Gold is a good workout. It has the great staging like the other Zumba, but not a "night club" scene; more of a high-end studio. It also has a fairly mature lady running it with the Zumba master (what's his name again?) and fellow participants. The lady is quite a bit older than me (and what's with those bat-eye fake lashes?) but she is in great shape and love her Zumba.

The workouts are a bit slower and definitely work with aging bodies in their cues, etc. Still, I didn't feel as challenged as in regular Zumba (nor should I). I ended up returning this set and continu…

REVIEW: Best Hand Cream I've Ever Used: Eucerin

I love hand cream. I need hand cream. I live in the desert and my hands look like crepe paper without it. But the problem is, I'm also a frequent hand washer. I need cream that will do its duty. Be there for me after a day of painting, cleaning, washing...

I still love Aveda's hand cream. So lovely! So expensive! But, until recently, and after having used so many creams, I've found one that literally makes your hands silky smooth and look younger (is it possible) after just one use. And...the best part is that it's at your local drugstore.

It's the Eucerin Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme with Buffered Alpha Hydroxy. Have you used this stuff? Does it rock, or what? I'm seriously in love with this and cannot believe how great my hands look and feel after using it.

Until I picked this up (Eucerin is not a brand I usually buy, but on a local Target trip I did), I used Josie Maran hand cream, which smells amazing, but even the beloved Argan oil cannot co…

Burt's Bees bought by Clorox?

I just heard this (no, I do not live under a rock) ...cannot believe they would sell to a large CHEMICAL manufacturer. I think it's awful and have also heard their profits are down 'cause of it. Is it true?

The thing about natural and organic is that they must be from a believer and follower of the concept; not just a profiteer. Now I do use Clorox bleach and appreciate it for what it is. However, I will not be a fan of Burt's Bees now. Sorry. I do love a few of their products, but will not continue to purchase this line due the fact it is no longer a truly grass-roots product.

I feel this way about Stila and Bobbi Brown (Estee Lauder now owns). I know business is about profits and growth, but I still think there needs to be personality and heart in the brands I support.

Just my opinion.

Review: WEN Hair Oil: A must or pass?

I'm a WEN girl and have been for several years now. When I first tried it I wasn't so sure it was all it was promised to be. In other words, I didn't get the super dramatic hair revitalization that they said I would on the infomercial. Since then, I've learned a thing or two and with continued use, I'm SOLD. This is the best (and close most pricey) hair stuff I've used and I make sure I don't run out. So...after watching countless sessions with Chaz on QVC (to see the latest deal and possibly place an order), I've learned ways to use WEN that result in great hair. However, this post isn't about that, it's about the add-on item: WEN HAIR OIL. I pretty much by-passed this stuff for all the years I've used WEN. I'd run some through now and then, but never consistently, as I never saw the results. Then...I left it on for several hours one night and then showered. My hair was incredibly soft. Before it had felt really fried, even with my re…

Product Review: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo

HONEST REVIEW: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo

Hey ladies! In our quest to tighten, firm and "sculpt" our eyes at home, Olay has a new product offering. Here's my take after using it for about 4 weeks:

First, no product is going to "sculpt" our eyes at home. Not gonna happen. So, with that in mind, I do feel this is a nice product for the price. There are several seriously more pricey products out there claiming to do the same: tighten our eye area, both top and bottom. Now, this is a new thing for most eye creams. Usually you can only use them on the under eye area. Now, this cream is letting us dot it lightly on the upper lid to help firm and reduce crepey skin. Finally!

I can't say I've seem super WOW results, but I do feel it is a nice cream for the eyes and I think (think) it's helping firm my upper lids. They seem smoother and less puffy overall, so for now, I'd say it's…

Creativity Spikes with Parkinson's Disease

Some people with Parkinson's disease discover untapped artistic abilities after their diagnosis -- a phenomenon that seems to be related to their dopamine-enhancing medication.

Over the years, reports have popped up in the medical literature on Parkinson's patients who suddenly discover they are painters, sculptors or writers at heart. Read this full WebMD article...
