If you haven’t tried POM Wonderful juices now is the time. I had read about the fantastic health benefits and a cute bottle of pomegranate juice fit the bill. I found it a little concentrated, but cut it with seltzer. Now POM has perfected the magic – POM Lite beverages – new flavors,fewer calories – and all the good stuff left in. De-lish. Change it up this afternoon !

The season for these lemons can dictate when you find them, but I highly recommend. They are more fragrant and have a richer and slightly sweeter flavor than regular lemons. I use them in hot water or seltzer for flavor. Basic and simple, yet feels like a treat !

NHL Concussions

Holy Headache

By | All, Locker Room, Talk | No Comments

Concussions abound and the number of NHL players out due to concussion is almost a full roster… I know from a number of youth hockey families that concussions are now abundant at the junior level and the debate continues in both professional and amateur level as to whether there are more incidents leading to concussions or whether there is simply more diligence in diagnosing and treating this type of injury. Either way, information is key to a full understanding for players, families and fans – this post is from one of my absolute faves Puck That Hurts:

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.

DiorShow Mascara

DiorShow Iconic Mascara gets the job done

By | All, Faves, Shop | No Comments

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.
