One-Stop-Shop Skincare Brand For The Whole Family

Between scents, allergies and function, when every family member favors a different skincare brand, it can feel like shopping for different skincare items is never ending. Everyone needs something different, which can be annoying for the primary shopper to keep track of. Thankfully, there is a brand out there that seems to have it all covered. Have you tired Belli Skincare yet?

Belli Skincare has a bundle that will satisfy every family member’s needs:

  • Body Bliss – Features the Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub and Pure and Pampered Body Wash for a allergen-free exfoliating and cleansing experience.
  • Dew You – The All Day Moisture Body Lotion and Elasticity Belly Oil is all about keeping skin healthy, nourished and hydrated.
  • On The Spot – Focused on acne control and improving the complexion, the Anti-Blemish Face Wash, Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator and Acne Control Spot Treatment work together to repair skin.

Belli Skincare products are dermatologist-approved and free from harmful chemicals, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, parabens, gluten, phthalates and preservatives. They smell really nice too- nothing overpowering, just a light scent. My favorite is the cleansing gel, it never leaves my skin dry or greasy, and it does keep it clear.

My husband and youngest son use these skincare items as well. The face wash works for all of us, and the acne spot treatment is something both my youngest and I use on a regular basis- though honestly, myself most of all.

Keeping your skin moist is always a challenge, but the Dew You works really well. None of us have dry skin any longer, and the smell doesn’t bother anyone. It’s not overly an overly feminine scent, so the husband and son like it as well. We really like Belli Skincare, you should give it a try. Save money, time, and use less chemicals while you are at it.

Kickstart Your Morning with CBD Living Instant Coffee

It’s a universal fact that mornings are rough, and they’re 10x more difficult when you have to wrangle sleepy kids too. If you are like me, you are trying to balance the “new normal” of working from home, kids be schooled from home, and trying to keep everything going smoothly while staying sane (since everything is canceled or postponed and we are all going stir crazy, no? LOL)
Mornings, though. Impossible, even with the new, non-commute many of us now have. And getting the kids into online school isn’t any easier or faster then into real school- on the contrary, it seems to take longer, and you have to stay on top of them all day besides. Arg.
So…..what do you do to give yourself a little boost?
Try new CBD Living Instant Coffee, which has three flavors of delicious instant coffee. OriginalGolden Milk and Matcha. Each flavor contains 7mg of US-grown organic hemp and is made from 100% Colombian Arabica coffee. Even better, CBD Living Instant Coffee is vegan, gluten-free, THC-free and non-GMO.
Using CBD Living Instant Coffee is easy. Simply scoop one teaspoon of CBD Living Instant Coffee in a cup then add hot water, cold water or milk. Stir and enjoy.
Doesn’t get much easier then that.
It tastes pretty good too- my oldest son and I grab it on the occasions when the pot is empty and we don’t want to make a new one for just one more cup. It’s not that watery, blech “instant coffee” flavor that many people associate with instant- it’s totally worth trying and a really good staple to keep in the house.

  • The doctor designed Dr. Brown’s Gripebelt helps naturally soothe upset stomachs in babies and kids. Using a heated clay pack inside a safe swaddling belt, it soothes pain associated with colic and gas.

No matter what you need for your baby, this is a good place to start if he or she is uncomfortable. Hopefully these products will give you and your baby the relief you are looking for.

Sports Drinks For Kids/ Hydrate Without Chemicals

Looking for an alternative to Pedialyte that is more natural but has all the benefits? Look no further. Kinderlyte gives you multiple options for your child (and several flavors to choose from) that they will enjoy. No syrup-y aftertaste, these are flavors your kids will enjoy. There is also individual powder packs that make it easy to keep them on the go in case you need them.

After the founder made a 2am trip to the store for his sick daughter only to find that the Oral Electrolyte Solution he had purchased was full of artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors that are known to influence behavioral and health issues, he decided to create Kinderfarms. This is a company dedicated to values-driven alternatives that better serve the needs and values of today’s healthy families.

At Kinderfarms, it all starts on a farm, where healthy hydration begins with real, natural ingredients! Kinderlyte is the first 100% natural and Non-GMO oral electrolyte solution (OES). NO artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors or preservatives. Kinderlyte is Non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan, Gluten Free and Kosher. With Kinderlyte, you get more electrolytes with no artificial ingredients like Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Yellow 6, Blue 1 or Red 40.

 Kinderlyte is different. Doctors & Dieticians worked to formulate a true OES with more electrolytes, potassium & zinc than the leading brand. Unlike Sports drinks, OES’s use dextrose exclusively to carry electrolytes directly to the bloodstream for rapid absorption. Any product containing juice, coconut water or honey will be absorbed more slowly and is not a true OES. Kinderlyte hydration drinks work quickly when you or your loved ones need it most.

Kinderlyte is a 100% natural oral electrolyte solution. We use non-gmo dextrose instead of fructose so it’s delivered direct to the bloodstream for rapid hydration. This helps to rehydrate and replenish key nutrients due to dehydration resulting from illnesses and colds in both children and adults alike.

Kinderlyte can be used for rapid rehydration & rehydration therapy for people of any age! More than 90% of people are dehydrated, keep your eye out for symptoms of dehydration in adults, the elderly and kids. These include dry skin, dry mouth and muscle cramps. Kinderlyte’s direct rehydration to the bloodstream makes it effective, it works fast to address dehydration for any reason including sports, hangover, travel, stomach virus, infant diarrhea, toddler vomiting and more!

Liquid and powder electrolyte solutions  – Kinderlyte liquids and hydration powders offer natural and effective rehydration, without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. We recommend keeping at least two bottles of electrolyte solution at home and two boxes of the electrolyte powder in your (or your kids’) favorite flavors on hand for instant hydration on the go.

Drinks and powders with high levels of electrolytes like Kinderlyte meet the World Health Organization’s requirements and can help relieve symptoms associated with virus-related mild to moderate dehydration in both adults and kids. Kinderlyte’s oral electrolyte solutions are designed specifically for rehydration with the optimal balance of glucose and electrolytes. Kinderlyte products are available at Target, Rite Aid, Walgreens and other retailers nationwide.

5 Winter Essentials Worth Adding to Your Cart

It is best practice to update your wardrobe before the season actually arrives. You don’t want to be caught out in a snowstorm in a thin summer dress. Summer colours aren’t appropriate for winter either. Autumn clothes might come in the right colours but they lack that added winter warmth. Hush Style has the latest fashions to keep up with the changing seasons. 

Boots

The autumn boots are fine for protecting your feet from the rain and falling leaves but they lack the lining of a good pair of winter boots. Numb feet aren’t just uncomfortable. They affect your balance. It is bad enough navigating icy pavements without numb feet. Autumn, winter and spring are different seasons requiring different boots. Let’s hope you don’t need any in summer unless you live in the countryside. Autumn and winter boots may look similar but they’re designed for different seasons. Autumn still experiences some warm days and boots reflect this. Show your feet you love them and buy boots for winter. 

Wool Tights

Skirts aren’t off limits just because it is winter. In late autumn, you noticed your legs were cold in your favourite skirts. Wool tights should be added to every winter shopping basket. They’re thicker and warmer than autumn and spring tights in 100 denier. That means they’re very thick and opaque but your legs will be warm. Save the sheer tights for early autumn and late spring. Black 100 denier tights can be paired with numerous winter appropriate skirts or worn under a pair of ripped jeans

Sweatshirts

Sweatshirts aren’t just for the gym. If you are prone to being cold, you’ll want layers. A sweatshirt easily fits over your office clothes and under your coat. Perfect for standing at the bus stop on a winter morning or storing in your car. They don’t suffer from loose threads the same way knitwear does, so can easily be taken off and causally thrown into a bag or desk drawer until it is needed again. It is also more comfortable for lounging around the house than a cardigan. 

Scarves

One scarf is never enough when it comes to winter. They need to be washed or dry cleaned after use, something a lot of people forget. Scarves should be matched to what you’re wearing beneath your coat. Most of us go all winter wearing the same coat. We don’t spend all winter in the same clothes. Our scarves should reflect this. 

Larger Bag

Whether you prefer handbags, shoulder bags or crossbody bags, not only should it be upgraded every season, the size should reflect the season. In winter, you carry gloves, scarves, hats and umbrellas. You need somewhere to put everything. It is tempting to use pockets but gloves fall out of these as well as create an unsightly bulge. Gloves should be stored in a handbag. You don’t carry them around in other seasons. Winter bags need a bit of extra space. 

Be warm and stylish this winter.

How To Save Money On Wrapping Christmas Presents

Giving gifts to special people in your life on Christmas Day doesn’t stop at buying the best gifts ever. Typically, you need to wrap your presents so they look nice and presentable when given to the receivers. This means you may have to spend some money on buying gift wraps for your Christmas presents. 

Luckily, holiday gift-wrapping doesn’t need to be costly. There are a few ways to keep gift-wrapping costs down and save money. Here are some tips to help you get started:

Reuse Wrapping Paper

Reusing gift wrappers is becoming increasingly popular. While some people have no problem buying new wrapping papers, many others are still looking at the idea of recycling the wrapping papers used during last year’s holiday season. After all, reusing these papers can be a great way to cut down on the number of wrappers you need to purchase. 

Therefore, if you happen to have leftover wrapping papers from previous Christmases, then, you can use these to wrap this year’s Christmas presents. Consequently, you can save more money in the long run. 

Buy Wrapping Paper In Bulk

With the Christmas season fast approaching, you may find yourself in need of some great wrappers and decorations for your home or office. However, if you’re looking to save some money on these Christmas expenses, buying wrapping paper wholesale can be a great idea. When you buy wholesale, you’ll be able to buy larger packages at a lower price, helping you save more money.

To find the best deals at the most affordable prices when it comes to bulk wrapping paper, you’ll want to search the Internet. There are many sites out there that offer wholesale wrapping paper, and you won’t even have to worry about their quality. 

Make Your Own Gift Wrap

Ideally, you can make your own gift wrap to help you save more this Christmas. The best part about this money-saving idea is that you can make your own Christmas wrapping paper, which means that you can customize it any way you want. You can inject your personality into it, making your presents feel more personal and sincere.

You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can put together some great-looking gift wraps all by yourself.  All you need to do is take some extra time to do some research and look through the different stores that offer the materials you need for your DIY project. On the other hand, if you have lots of leftover papers in your house, you can make use of them to come up with your own wrapping papers. 

Buy Gift Wraps From Clearance Sales

Now that you have the best gift ideas in mind, the next step is to plan out your packaging without overspending. Hence, if you’re looking for affordable gift wraps for the holiday season, it’s best to consider buying them from clearance sales. In most cases, stores will have their items on sale due to inventory shortages or to simply bring in more customers and generate more sales. Regardless of the reason, it should be in your best interest to shop for gift wraps at these events. Because you’re paying less, you can save more money, which you can use to buy more gifts or keep in your savings account!

Make Wrapping Part Of The Gift

Instead of buying a gift wrap, why not make the wrapping part of the gift itself?  This means buying something that can both serve as a packaging and a gift at the same time. For example, if you’re planning to gift your father with a gourmet coffee bag and a mug, you can place the mug inside the bag and, then, add a bow—it’s like you have two gifts in one. By doing this, you no longer need to worry about wrapping an awkwardly-shaped gift for your loved one. 

On the other hand, you can also buy baskets, dish towels, and throw blankets that can be used as packaging. Instead of buying a wrapping paper that will be tossed afterward, you can use these items as your packing. Aside from being able to save money on your wrapping needs, you’re also able to gift something that will last longer and bring happiness to your receiver. 

Look For Free Gift Boxes And Wrapping

During this holiday season, there are plenty of stores who offer free gift boxes and free wrapping services when you buy items from them. They usually have a wrapping station where you can utilize their supplies and get your gifts wrapped without spending anything. 

Hence, if you’re on a tight budget this Christmas, why not avail of some stores’ free wrapping services. If you don’t know anyone who offers this, try to go to Google and find one near your area. You might have to spend some money on your holiday gift, but you can save money on your wrapping needs. 

Buy High-Quality Gift Wrap 

Although this tip might sound counter-intuitive, it’s important to note that saving money on wrapping Christmas presents begins with a high-quality gift wrap. Realistically speaking, you might love to buy wrapping papers at a cheaper price without any regard to quality. Unfortunately, you end up getting frustrated, knowing that the paper is torn, ripped off, or looks horrible by the time you’re finished with wrapping. Not only that, but some low-quality wrapping papers are see-through, which means you need to use up more supplies to come up with a great packaging. 

For these reasons, it’s a better idea to buy a high-quality gift wrap from the start than buying more supplies in the long run. When you choose a high-quality wrapping paper, you can make sure that the product is thick and easy to work with. Hence, you can finish wrapping Christmas presents without getting your gift wrap torn or wrinkled. This can be one of the best ways to get more savings on your wrapping needs. 

Conclusion

If you want to make your life a little easier and reduce your holiday spending, keeping the tips mentioned above is the way to go. It will help you save on wrapping costs, as well as give you the convenience of having extra money in your pocket even after Christmas.
