Fit Bit One reviews…..

Everyone who knows me knows I LOVE tracking.  Whether that's calories or my steps, it works for me.  There is something very visually satisfying to see what I'm eating and the steps I'm taking.   I decided to monitor my activity during the day and bought a FITBIT ONE.  The Fitbit is like a pedometer on steroids!  Seriously.....

DIY Organic Cleanser Recipe-for Oily Skin.

I started making my own skin care because I wanted to stop using chemicals on my skin.  For most of my career in the skin care industry I used Dermalogica.  I loved this line of skin care.  They had beautifully smelling products with great results.  They claimed to be "all natural" which was good enough for me.  After doing research on all the harmful ingredients that are in skin care I started looking at the never ending ingredient list on the back of my beloved Dermalogica products.  Propylene … [Read more...]
