What to do with old hockey gear as new season kicks in? Started by Goalie Mom’s son – the Stick Exchange is a genius idea – with it’s premier event this weekend in Stamford, CT. Benefiting hockey organizations in our area – it is a win-win – gear purging with a charitable outcome ! Visit thestickexchange.com for more information and find out about starting an event in your area if you are not in Fairfield County.
Looking to dust off (literally) after winter… AmorePacific “Treatment Enzyme Peel” is THE quick fix for a fresh face forward. Super gentle powder mixes into a light lather when mixed with water. Wash face and voila ! I have been using this once a week for a few months and LOVE. This line is amazing and this product is a great intro.
Mid-price range – worth it and no appointment needed – perfect for the results oriented hockey mom ! Purchase at Sephora.com and enjoy free samples from their vast selection with every purchase.
Valerie Waters, an LA-based trainer whose roster is topped by Jennifer Garner, developed Valsides – I can’t say enough about them and have to share ! I was introduced to this simple yet genius exercise program while reluctantly at the gym, and have seen them used on a range of clients from NHL players training in the off season, to once-a-week girls like myself. Based on the concept of slide board training, Valerie created scaled-down versions that lend themselves to an incredibly wide range of exercises.
When the going gets tough… the tough find a top notch mascara ! Long days, allergy season, occasional tears… DiorShow Iconic Mascara is THE heavy weight contender to get the job done. Great formula is super for long, separated lashes with a bit of curl. Not usually one for tears, the recent loss of my 14 year old black lab has sadly given me great cause to test drive this mascara – no unsightly raccoon eyes here ladies ! Only downside is the need to purchase eye make up remover to get it off at the end of the night… I love the standard version DiorShow as well. Both available at Sephora.
This is the first of three cookbooks I love – especially going in to summer although can be used all year ! Purchase on Amazon.
Simply recipes and I love her direction to keep is basic, not fuss and have a drink while you cook !
