Meet Aira, my new best friend! I’m in love with this facial steamer from Vanity Planet. In just 15 minutes it helps to detox and hydrate my skin making it more receptive to the products I use.
The Aira, uses warm steam which opens up pores, helping to release skin-dulling impurities while also boosting circulation for a more youthful flush.
The way it makes my skin feel, is so amazing. It’s relaxing and invigorating at the same time especially when I incorporate my favorite essential oils to Aira! The Aira comes with three essential oil baskets for you to place your favorite oil into (they include three to prevent the mixing of oils). I'll typically steam my face 2-3 times per week. And because we live in the Arizona desert, I’ll take all the hydration from this perfect at-home facial steamer that I can! I love adding this into my weekly skin care routine; it makes me feel like I’m at the spa without ever leaving home.

Take time to Relax, Renew, and Refresh, friends!

I love polished nails, I feel totally put together when my nails are done. Since covid emerged I have forgone my biweekly manicure. My nails looked dreadful!
Recently I tried Color Street nail polish strips. They are easy to apply, simply press them onto your nails and say hello to an instant manicured hand. There is no drying time. They are base coat, color, and topcoat built into the color strip. They last about two weeks and can be removed with acetone. Each pack costs $11. There are so many colors to choose from.
The best part: they don't destroy your nails as acrylics do. If you're a gal like me and want convenience in your life, I highly recommend Color Street.
You can purchase the strips on amazon, or directly from their website.
Here's to looking marvelous,

The older I get the more I can appreciate a good pair of comfortable & stylish shoes. My pick for this month are Rothy's shoes. The shoes and handbags are environmentally friendly and come in many styles and colors. From the knit uppers—which are spun from plastic bottles—all the way down to the algae-based foam in their strobel boards, they consider each material they use. With the future belonging to my grandchildren, I certainly can appreciate their commitment to the environment.
If you refer a friend to Rothy's, both you and your friend will receive $20 off a purchase of shoes. Did I mention they are also washable? I've had a pair for over 5 years and they still look brand new. Can't wait to try some more fun styles and as well as their handbags.
Many blessings and love to you and yours,

Summer is quickly approaching and that means outdoor grilling and barbecuing, along with enjoying dinners on the patio. I've got the perfect gadget to season your steaks, burgers, and salads. This battery-operated grinder mill for salt or pepper is the best that I've come across and I've tried several! You simply turn it upside down over your food and it does the rest for you. It is adjustable to set the coarseness to your desire and it even has an LED light so you can see exactly how much is going on your food. These are available on Amazon, as a set ($29) or a single ($17), and come in black or silver.
Using a grinder for salt and pepper will make your food taste so good and there are other benefits as well. Did you know that Himalayan Sea Salt does not affect your blood pressure like regular table salt? Check out this blog from Paleo Hacks for more info. As far as pepper, the flavor intensity is much better when using freshly ground peppercorns because of the release of the flavor oils. Think of the difference between freshly ground coffee beans vs. store bought ground coffee.
Try this item and you won't go back to regular old table salt and ground pepper!

Spring is here and along with it, spring cleaning. Anything I can find to make the job go faster is always a plus. The Norwex Dusting Mitt has become my all time favorite cleaning assistant. It is a chemical solution to dusting. The static electricity created as it passes over a surface allows it to effectively pick up dust from all surfaces. Just slip it on your hand and get after those dust bunnies. I love how it glides along the lamp bases and those hard to get to places. It really does make the chore go faster. I love not having to use products that are not good for my health and the well being of my family. I use the Norwex Rubber Brush to clean the dusting mitt. It can also be used to remove pet hair, crumbs, etc. from furniture and car upholstery.
Norwex is a company out of Norway, one of the most environmentally friendly countries on earth. Their mission is to provide safer, healthier and more sustainable cleaning and personal care solutions. With every product they make, they consider the impact it will have on the environment and how it will leave a better planet for future generations, our Grandchildren. The microfiber yarn and all their product containers are made from recycled plastic bottles.
Be sure and check out the Norwex website for more environmentally friendly cleaning tools and to find a consultant near you.
Happy dusting Cinderella!
