Do you remember Christmas before electronics?
I remember being excited to find a Scrabble game as one of my Christmas gifts. The family would play all day. Sometimes I would play by myself when everyone else was busy cooking or talking. I could spend hours making words. Now we all have our own games of Words With Friends on our cell phones. It is sad how times have changed. Everyone is on phones or tablets. Family interactions may be an occasional "watch this". Teenagers hypnotized by their phones are like holiday zombies. You have to nudge them to get them to respond. We may be all together, but worlds apart.
I challenge each family this Christmas to pull out the traditional board games or buy some new ones. Encourage interactions between family members and don't get lost in social media or the Internet feeds. Sometimes you just have to regress to make progress. Let our goals be to reconnect with our family this Holiday Season.
Happy Holidays to All!
Count those wraps 1, 2, 3... The Perfect Watch is a Triple-Wrap Watch
Buying the perfect watch is easier than you think. With this awesome coupon (Super50), you can save 50% off an amazing watch. The triple wrap watches come in two lengths to accommodate those like me with a larger wrist. I buy the large band, and as you can see it is a great fit with extra room so it hangs like a bracelet.
Once you purchase a watch, you can alternate the watch with several interchangeable bands. I have the Denim Lover, the Pure White, and the Pure Black. With these three bands, I can wear my watch with just about any outfit. Of course, the Pure White is my favorite. Your purchase comes with a tool for changing out your bands and in a very nice gift package. This is a great choice for a Christmas gift or a treat for yourself.

Makeup is one of those topics that varies from person to person. I have been wearing makeup since my high school years. After struggling with acne, I had to take action about how I apply my makeup and remove it. There are two rules that I live by: "Never apply makeup with your hands" and "always use a makeup remover and not soap".
Application: Get good quality make up brushes and application pads. Change them often. If your brushes are losing bristles or your pads are leaving crumbs, you need new ones. I change mine monthly. Keep your items organized. Get a makeup box with compartments so your tools are not pressed against each other when they are not being used. This will allow time for drying without the exposure to outside bacteria. People who leave items on the bathroom sink are breeding all kinds of bacteria on their make-up brushes and pads.
Cleansing: I buy bottled makeup remover for when I'm at home and removal cloths when I travel. I keep a pack of cloths in my purse too for when I go to the gym after work.
Preparation is key: Having a routine with makeup is just as important as brushing your teeth. You may not see the results until years later, but protecting your skin and looking your best should not be compromised.
