Clarisonic Alpha Fit Review

My husband is one of the lucky ones. He has clear skin and doesn't have to put much, if any, effort into keeping it that way. I'd gladly trade complexions with him any day of the week (although he does need to step up his sunscreen game.) All that being said, he does need to start taking care of his skin a little more. We're not getting any younger, you know? One of the big reasons I wash my face at night (and why I think everyone should, dudes included)  is simply because your face is funky by bedtime. You may not see it, but there's a layer of your day sitting on your skin. Everything … [Read More...]

Pumpkin Biscotti

National Coffee Day: Pumpkin Biscotti Recipe

Today is National Coffee Day. If you know me, you know I am not a coffee person. I prefer a cuppa tea over coffee any day of the week. But, I married a coffee fanatic. His day doesn't begin until he's had a hot cup of coffee. I'm convinced the stuff runs through his veins. I guess you could say I'm celebrating National Coffee Day by proxy. But there's one part of coffee I will gladly celebrate: all of the delicious treats that go with java: coffee cake, scones, and biscotti. This pumpkin biscotti recipe is perfect for a fall coffee break (or tea break.) I made the icing using LACTAID … [Read More...]

Sick Day Essentials

Sick Day Essentials

I am down with some nasty cold/borderline flu funk. It's completely awful timing, seeing as my house is torn apart as I go on my purge fest and you can't walk anywhere without stepping on a random piece of clothing or knick knack I've emptied from a drawer. Once Upon a Time marathon: Daytime television is awful. Not just awful, horrific. Netflix is my true love on sick days. I'm currently binge-watching on Once Upon a Time. I tried watching it a few years ago and couldn't get into it. Now, I'm completely addicted. I had hoped to catch up by the season premiere on Saturday, but that's not … [Read More...]
