Silver Snowflake Earrings

With the holidays fast approaching, there’s pressure to shop, shop, shop. But in the back of our minds, there’s always the fear of what our credit card statements will look like – last year BB spent $736.74!

One Christmas gift, office Secret Santa present, or stocking stuffer that works for many women is silver jewelry: earrings, charms, rings. Below are some of the deals I found on silver jewelry online, so you can avoid holiday crowds and all those long lines. A gift in itself! Note, these items are not solid silver but silver plated or other. Read descriptions carefully and don’t hesitate to ask the seller questions.

Are you sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, and fighting through the symptoms to stay awake and put two thoughts together? It’s that time of year again when colds descend, as they have in my house. I don’t mind taking a few days of decongestants or medications for relief, but when the colds stretch on and on, I turn to home remedies to avoid overmedicating. They are cheaper than buying over the counter meds, and are great if you have other health concerns that limit the meds you can take, like pregnancy.

Witch Hazel (aka toner) is more than just an odd-smelling, funny-named bottle of clear liquid your grandmother kept in her medicine cabinet. It’s produced from the leaves and bark of a shrub and has been used for years for medicinal purposes. The bottled witch hazel consists of oil from the shrub and which has been distilled and combined with alcohol. Why use harsh chemicals when you can opt for all natural and eco-friendly? Plus, it’s easy to find at the dollar store, so you can’t beat the price!

How I Got Rid of My Sinus Infections For Good

, , 5 Comments

A few years ago, I was having sinus infection after sinus infection. I went through 8 rounds of antibiotics in less than one year. I even had an MRI. The doctor said the next step was surgery. Then a mom from my daughter’s kindergarten class told me about an anti-inflammatory shake she drinks every day and how they improved her health.

An anti-inflammatory diet can help with a variety of chronic ailments including sinus infections, digestive disorders, arthritis…even the common cold. Her swamp-colored green shakes looked anything but appetizing, but I was desperate and sick of being sick! The next day, she brought me my very own mossy green thick shake. With a shudder, I drank it and it was delicious! I started making them myself. That was 4 years ago.

I have had zero sinus infections since drinking these shakes.
