Natural Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads

I get approached fairly regularly by companies that want me to share their products, images, stories etc. and while I believe that everyone needs a helping hand, not all the products fit with the meme of my blog (eg. “eyelash extensions imported from China”, “hot Russian chicks just for me” and a plethora of diet programs that I would never attempt myself)

Since I don’t use eyelash extensions, I’m not much into chicks – no matter how hot these Russian women are – and I […]

The BEST Protein Bars in the world

“The BEST protein bars in the world” sound like a tall order to live up to?

BEST protein bars, protein bar recipe, chocolate protein bars, meal replacement bars, healthy snack, no-bake protein bars

You need to try these and tell me I’m wrong.  I don’t even like protein bars as a rule, but I’ve been snacking away on these like they were candy.  Truly, I even had one as dessert the other […]

Bee Allergies

I’m allergic to bees.

Rather, I WAS allergic to yellowjackets, but am no more.

When I was in my 20’s I was stung several times after mowing over a yellow jacket nest that was hidden under the roots of  a tree.  (Did you know yellowjackets will build nests in the ground?  Neither did I until this incident.)

Anyways, I immediately broke out into large hives all over my arms and chest.  I’d been stung by the occasional bee as a child, but this […]

15 Ways to Get More Vegetables into Your Diet

This is Lisa Austin and she is the owner of It Fits Personal Training.  I approached Lisa to ask if she would share some of her blog articles here on 100Things2Do and she said yes!  Better still, she is offering 100Things2Do readers a limited time, DISCOUNTED offer on her “21 Day Rapid Slim Down” program!  That would mean that if you start Monday, you could look better, feel healthier and be stronger by April […]

Yoga for Beginners – Start Your Spring Training

As you may (or may not) know, I’ve been doing yoga two or three times a week for just over a year now.

It was nothing I was ever interested in trying – I mean, with a rear-end the size of mine, sticking it in the air seems cruel to fellow participants, not to mention my ego.  I did sit through a class or two at the gym and was mortified at both my inflexibility and appearance in yoga pants – […]

Tfees Straws

This post came about because I was surfing Instagram and came across a post from Tammi at Tfees™ Straws.

The image was of a steaming cup of coffee (or tea) with this clear plastic straw in it – something like this:

Tfees Straws - to protect your teeth from staining, erosion and sensitivity

See that tiny little clear stick in the top of my mug?  Pretty discreet right?

Cleaning Makeup Brushes

While I had everything out to clean my hair brushes the other day, I decided it was time to tackle my makeup brushes as well.

cleaning your makeup brushes, cleaning makeup brushes, how to clean makeup brushes

The only makeup I wear is a bit of eyeshadow, eyeliner and lip gloss – so I’m not sure how […]

Toothbrush Abrasion

This is going to seem like a weird post.  I’m not cleaning, building or organizing anything and no, this isn’t a sponsored post – this is one of those articles that I write because I like to share information.

Information that I came across “the hard way”.

I brush my teeth.  We all brush our teeth right? But did you know that if you brush your teeth too hard or aggressively you can actually cause your gums to recede?

Did you know that […]

Benefits of Lemon Water

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

As we roll into the New Year with new goals and aspirations – attention seems to focus on health.  Maybe it’s because all of the Holiday binging has left us feeling slack and sluggish, maybe it’s because we’ve added a few pounds and the clothes Santa brought are a bit snug around the middle, maybe it’s just about fresh starts and clean slates, but whatever the reason magazines, television and yes – even us pesky bloggers – are […]

How to Get Dressed – A Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Some of you may remember a second blog I ran about a year ago – Daily Glam?

Don’t go looking for it now, it’s been taken down – but it was a blog to teach you how to dress.

Don’t worry, I wasn’t the one giving the fashion advice – I was working with Stylists to come up with different outfits each day… and I loved it.

Truly LOVED it.

It made my days so much easier in that all I had to do […]

Allergy Season – and Some Natural Remedies

I have the privilege of being in an accountability group that includes a brilliant Homeopath – Joanna Rogister, DCHM, R.H.N., BA.

I must have been snuffling and sneezing during one of our meetings because the topic of allergies came up.  Joanna told me she had planned to post an article on her website with regards to the trials and tribulations of allergy sufferers, and offering up advice and suggestions on all natural, homeopathic alternatives to help with the inflammation […]

Happy Mail!

How often are you out and about and you see or hear something that reminds you of someone.  Say a favourite song from high school, a wild scarf or hat, or a dish that you think a friend would love….

For me it happens all the time.

Like when I hear the song “Mr. Jones” by the Counting Crows – it reminds me of a boy I dated that gave me a mixed tape with this song on it.  I […]

Timer Apps to Limit Children’s Online Gaming

With summer comes the inevitable daily battle to get the kids off of their technology.

Computer, television, iPhone – or in our house – the iPad,  are constantly in use.  The constant stimulation isn’t good for kids (in my opinion) and being indoors and anti-social is even worse – but getting the girls to turn off their iPads is akin to ripping out their toenails.  We’re talking screaming, yelling, name calling and full-on-tantrums – by them AND by me.

During the […]

Creating a Vision Board

I have been putting this off for MONTHS.

Really…. at least two, probably more, and I can’t explain why.

I wanted a vision board – some inspiration and direction for my life – but I did not want to make one (at least subconsciously).

Now that I’ve made it – I feel WONDERFUL!

The pressure of it lurking in the back of my head has been alleviated, and I LOVE what is on it.

Just looking at it makes me happy.  Maybe it’s more like […]

Eyebrow Extensions?

Yup, you read it correctly… EYEBROW extensions.

You’ve probably heard of hair extensions and eyelash extensions, but this is for those of us with scarred, over-tweezed, uber-waxed and/or thinning eyebrows…

synthetic mink eyebrow extensions that are glued right onto your existing hairs to add fullness and shape.

I was SO THRILLED to find the only person south of Toronto (in Canada that is) that is certified to do this procedure.

This is me this morning.

Couple of gaps, very thin at […]

What’s making me happy…

So much has been going on around here that I wanted to stop and take a moment to appreciate all of the special moments.

Bear with me as I  subject you to my photo montage of what’s making me happy:

1.  Being fortunate enough to be able to drop work to go see my girls Spring Concert at school

Making me happy 1 - 1

2.  Watching them sing and gesture their little hearts out. […]

Women At Play

How many times have you thought to yourself “Oh, I’d love to try that!” – but never have.

How many times have you tried to get your girlfriends together to go out – but never seem to coordinate something that works for everyone?

How many times have you wished you could sneak out for an hour or two and just be you – not a Mom, not a wife, not a caretaker, cook, cleaner, chauffeur etc?

Women At Play is a new […]

100 Funny Team Names – revisited

100 Funny Team Names is another post that I wrote last year, but that I still chuckle at.  It’s gaining a lot of Pinterest traffic, so I guess people are getting ready for Spring sports, walk-a-thons and races and it seemed appropriate to share it again.

While I was surfing the internet compiling my list I was laughing out loud at some of […]
