When It Comes to the Flu, Prevention is the Key

Two weeks before Christmas, I was hit with the nasty flu that seemed to sweep across the U.S. (if my Facebook feed is any indication). Fever, chills, body aches, loss of appetite and a cough that made me cry were the name of the game for 6 days straight. On Day 3 of my fever,…

Why I Drink {And Love} Apple Cider Vinegar Water

I have a slight obsession with apple cider vinegar water -- basically, I love it! -- and every time I mention that, whether in person or via social media, I get tons of questions: What does it taste like? Why do you drink it? Do you really like it? Originally, I started drinking ACV water…

Fight MRSA with SAFESKIN Kids Antibacterial Gel

Right after her second birthday, our youngest daughter began sucking her thumb. She was such a high-needs baby/toddler that we really didn't try to stop this habit because -- after two years of screaming -- car rides were suddenly peaceful and she began sleeping through the night!

Using Redmond Clay as Part of Your First Aid Kit

Alcohol-Free CloSYS Oral Rinse for Healthy Mouths

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CloSYS for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. We've never been big mouthwash users. Although I love the idea of fresh minty breath, I'm not a fan of "the burn" that comes from traditional mouthwash. We recently had the opportunity to try CloSYS Oral…
