3 Steps to Help Jumpstart Your Wellness Routine

3 Steps to Jumpstart Your Wellness Routine

It has been very nice here the past few days… in the 80s and sunny–borderline hot for me, but there has been a nice breeze. I actually broke out the walking sandals and put away my sweatshirts. So excited for nice weather. And then I realized what is coming up, like NOW. Summer. Shorts. Swimsuits. Tank Tops. AGH!! With the terrible weather we had this past winter I spent way too much time inside, sitting on my butt, instead of outside walking and getting exercise. I definitely need to jumpstart my fitness routine! By taking a few small steps in the right direction, I can improve my health and hopefully drop a few pounds in the process. I know that I work better with a plan. So my first step was …

Well, it’s official! Even if the calendar doesn’t quite agree, summer is here. And it has hit North Carolina with a vengeance. We are only on day 6 of summer break and I’m ready for fall. What the heck am I going to do to survive the next 10 weeks of “vacation”?!? It’s too hot to do anything outside. I’m a fair-skinned redhead convinced I will die from spontaneous combustion if I go outside when it’s over 90. Air conditioning and ice pops are my best friends. …

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Disclosure: I was provided a pair of JLeer jeans in exchange for an open and honest review. All opinions are my own. A friend recently had her purse stolen while shopping. She turned away from her cart for just a few seconds to put something back on the shelf, and when she turned around it was gone. Less than 5 seconds is all it took for her life to be turned upside down. Everything was in there. Her cell phone, keys, checkbook, license, credit/debit cards, photos, and address book filled with all kinds of personal information. Everything that you don’t want a stranger to get their hands on. Until my friend’s experience, I’d never given much thought to theft. I mean I know it happens all the time, but “not to me”. And I’m …
