There is a lot of information about people who obssess over a clean house. Here is an interesting new take on it….that I don’t want my husband to see, because I am not sure I agree with it! Read about cleanliness HERE.
Recently, I was honored to appear on a Facebook Live progam with this lady, Emily Fritchey, the founder of the all natural skincare line, Sunshine Botanicals.Emily and her late husband were sound believers of the damage done to our skin from impurities and chemicals in the environment. They studied the power of plants and, they believed, plants were the key to a youthful, healthy complexion. So, I asked her to send samples from fome of their products for me to test and I am very impressed. The products have a silky feel and great aromas. My face looks healthy and glowing after I use them. They do tighten the complexion. Here are the products I have tried and liked:
The Cellular Firming Cream is a firming, anti-wrinkle antioxidant. It is very lightweight and smooth….infused with cranberry extract with white birch bark extract. Love the way it smells…especially after the night cleanse.
Good eye serums and creams are very important to me. They say this one reduces wrinkles by 15%, and helps with dark circles and puffiness. It does firm the area around the eye. I like the way my eyes have looked using it. Liquid 02 Extreme Eye Repair
More and more brands are making hydrating sprays and I have come to really like them. They advertise: “Cellular Renewal Mist is a powerful and targeted blend of unique botanical extracts carefully blended to hydrate the skin, stimulate healthy cell growth and revitalize damaged tissue.” It is very refreshing as well. Cellular Renewal Mist
I have also tried their cleansers and do like them. This Cleanse & Purify is like pouring plants from the blender on to the face. It is a refreshing cleanse and I really like it. So this gives you an all natural, plant made skincare line to consider and to help out your decisions, Sunshine Botanicals is offering my readers a discount. If you make a purchase and use the code PAM20 at checkout, you will receive a 20% discount. This is one of the best all natural options I have seen.

We had a wonderful surprise for Spring Break last week…our grandchildren came for a visit! They were so excited when I said it was time to take pictures for the blog, so the boys and the puppy jumped into the spirit of spring. My Spring Break wardrobe was mostly denim inspired and that is why I chose to show you a couple of denim outfits this week.I could’ve made money on this photo bombing, but I let them do it any way without a payment…Gigi rarely says NO!
This is a Talbot’s cardigan; a Tahari Tee; a beautiful silk scarf I found at a consignment shop; and my Soft Surroundings denim Metro Leggings. Navy blue is such a nice, softer option for black. And these lightweight cardigans make perfect transition pieces to have. I find myself selecting navy more and more lately as I have resolved to wear more color this year.
Photo bombing wore the puppy out!
How do you feel about substituting black with navy? Are you in or out? Let us know and make sure you always…
The weather is heating up in South Texas, and kimonos are one of my go to pieces especially for hot weather I recently found this one at one of my favorite boutiques, Andie & Barbara in San Antonio…and it was on clearance…score! The tank I am wearing is a light brown Chicos Travelers’s tank because the same brown is subtle in the print of the wrap. My denim are my favorite Soft Surroundings Metro Leggings….which are really just skinny jeans. Besides wearing kimonos, something else I do when the seasons change is clean and re-organize my closet. For the last five years, my closet has been orgainzed into colors…all like minded colors hanging together…and then a prints section. But what I discovered is that I am usally looking for specific brands… asking where is that Chicos jacket, where are those Soft Surrounding’s pants…etcl. So, when I re-organized the closet recently, I hung my clothes in families! After two weeks, I am loving it. I can find things so much easier. Most of my wardrobe is in five major families…then there is a miscellaneous section. So far, it works great..so much better than the black section, the white section, the blue section, etc. etc. I also like it better than the pants section, the jacket section, the top section…I will let you know if my love of this pattern continues.
Would anyone else like to share your closet organization secrets? Please share and then……………….
Spring is busting out all over our city, and this scene is a perfect depiction of the season to me. While beautiful flowers are beginning to show, they really stand out even more with the bare trees of winter in the background. Many of us are coming out of a winter of predominantely neutrals and accessories are one of the best ways to have stand out style right now…accessories become our own mountain laurels against the bare trees.
One of the best ways to find unique,stand out, affordable pieces is on ETSY. I always have fun shopping ETSY and experiencing the talents of so many around the nation. So, I selected some fun accessories below for you to see what is currently in some of the ETSY shops.
I am concluding Spring Break with my grand children, so I hope to be back tomorrow with some outfits I have transitioned into Spring with starring my accessories….until then…
KEEP SMILING!! And tell us, do you ever shop Etsy…..

I have discovered a little gem, which I know will be of help to all of you. Read on to learn about the OMRON HEALTHCARE AVAIL, A WIRELESS DEVICE FOR DRUG-FREE PAIN RELIEF.
Mr. Bill and I are active adults in our sixties. He loves to run…not just any running…off trail running. In Texas, that means through rocks, trees, cactus, shrubs, and snakes! He runs half marathons and is currently training for a run in Colorado early summer. He loves it so much, he will do just about anything to keep running..I am not that active. The minute I heard about snakes,. I said no thank you to off trail running; however for me, to do my strength training and treadmill walking on a regular basis is way more active than I was in younger days. We both tend to struggle with pain issues. Getting old does stink sometimes…doesn’t it? However, it is so good to know there is help for those who suffer from chronic and acute pain. Omron Healthcare Inc., a global wellness technology leader has invented Avail, an innovative over-the-counter medical device for safe and effective drug-free pain relief. Avail is Omron’s first TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) unit with wireless and dual channel capability that provides relief from chronic and acute pain. The device can treat multiple pain sites simultaneously and is controlled by Omron’s new mobile app, Omron TENS, enabling users to operate Avail remotely.
I was first introduced to electrical nerve stimulation by a chiropractor after a car accident many years ago. The combination of treatments really helped my back and had me pain free very soon. So when I learned we could now do this at home I was immediately interested. My husband struggles with arthritis and has been lately suffering from plantar fasciitis. He was also very excited to hear about the Omron Avail.
It comes with two soft, contoured pads that fit comfortably and securely to treat a variety of areas of pain simultaneously. Avail’s five pre-programmed Body Pain Modes soothe lower back, shoulder, knee, elbow, and leg pain with recommended therapies. Avail users can also design their own therapies using five additional pulsation modes – including steady, acupuncture-like, knead, tap and microcurrent – and 20 different intensity levels. Bluetooth® 1 connectivity on Avail provides wireless control of settings via the Omron TENS app, for on-the-go personal control of pain relief. Omron TENS for smartphones is available for free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play. A therapy regularly administered by physical therapists and chiropractors, TENS sends stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. Electrical stimulation can also trigger the body to release endorphins, which act as natural painkillers, and improve blood circulation. Omron was the first company to market with an over-the-counter FDA-cleared TENS medical device for use at home. Of course, we recommend you discuss this with your primary physician or if you are under the care of a physical therapist.
Here is the really good news, you can save on the device if purchased by March 31. Those who purchase now may take advantage of the introductory pricing offer of $159.99 through March 31, 2018. After that, it goes back to its regular price of $199.99. Check it out on the Omron website HERE FOR SPECIAL OFFER. We will be curious to see if this saves us money on the over-the-counter pain meds, physical therapy, and even therapeutic massage…all have been used by Mr. B.
This could be very beneficial for many 50+ adults who suffer from chronic pain. Thanks so much for stopping by………….and, please……………………….
