Non Beauty Essentials!

I'm trying to amp up my work outs. I'm not twenty anymore *cough cough* so its a little harder to stay fit. I purchased this dvd because a. I watch the show b. I cannot afford the $400 per hoursJackie Warner charges at Sky Sport c. three twenty minute workouts seems manageable. I don't like exercising when my family is around so I have to wait until everyone clears the room.

Let me preface my review by saying this- Jackie Warner kicks your butt with these sessions. Its divided into three routines- lower body, core and arms. I used 5lb weights for the arms and couldn't get through the entire 20 minutes. Next time I'll use three lbs. The core and lower body workout definitely gave me a challenge and I feel sore today from all those awful squats and lunges. I'm counting on the ab workout to give me a more defined tummy but after two kids and daily bagels, I don't know. I'm hopeful though. You can learn more about Jackie here.

I saw the episode where she made the dvd and it seemed like she didn't put a whole lot into it but the result is a well designed program that targets muscles not used on a daily basis. Everyone on the dvd is so fit and in good shape, I feel bad about myself. My muffin top spilling out over my workout shorts is not cute. So Im planning on doing this dvd twice a week along with yoga.


Off Smooth & Dry is awesome for repelling nasty mosquitoes. I never thought much about those blood sucking insects until I had kids and now every one I see has the potential to harm my children with the West Nile virus. Stay back! I like this spray because its extremely lightweight and the aerosol can is 100% easier than rubbing in a lotion that lays on your skin like a sticky blanket. You spray this, it dries fast thanks to a cornstarch formula and off you go.


Keeps bugs OFF! Repels mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, biting flies, chiggers and fleas. Biting flies? Ouch! Chiggers sound gross. I've got a special coupon for you here.

Of course whenever you wear a light colored shirt is the time when you spill your latte or dribble marinara sauce on yourself. It never fails and I'm too old to wear a bib. It's happened to the best of us. I spilled coffee (thanks for not fastening the lid on my mocha, Starbucks) on my white top while driving to Los Angeles and had to run into Kohls and buy a new shirt. That happened last year and I was a little too enthusiastic about being forced to shop unexpectedly. I also bought new shoes.

To the rescue to nasty stains comes BLOX! Simply pour a little bit into the fabric softener dispenser and poof! Stain removed. Here's the info you need to know:

BLOX prevents hundreds of stains including red wine, coffee, mustard, spaghetti sauce, milk, blood, grass and ink. Visit www.PreventStains.com and click on one of the light blue tabs to see how it works. BLOX goes straight into the fabric softener dispenser before each load, and its stain repellent technology is activated when garments are thoroughly dried in a dryer or ironed. After being washed with BLOX, fabric remains soft and breathable. BLOX contains no solvents, silicone, PFOA or PFOS, is eco-friendly and has been dermatologist tested.

This is staying right next to my washing machine within easy reach!
