Get Soft Hands this Winter


Our Hands, we use them for everything and yet often neglect them until they are in pain.  Don’t wait until they are dry and cracked in order to do something.  Save your hands.

Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier




















If you’re in or near the Chicagoland area one of the best places to stop by this Holiday season is Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier.  Stay warm while you and your family Ice Skate in the indoor rink.  Relax while watching the many performances.  Enjoy some of the city's delicious treats, like funnel cakes and Garrett gourmet popcorn.

Men’s health online has made a very simple, compiled and very detailed gift guide for the man in your life.  What I like most about this gift guide is that it gives you 92 different ideas with the corresponding prices.  The wonderful thing is that the items listed provide you a broad price range, so something on the list will most definitely peek your interest. Better yet the price points can accommodate any budget.

Rise of the Guardians


This past weekend my husband and I took our daughter on a little family date to watch Rise of the Guardians.  As excited, as our little one was, truth is my inner child was bouncing off the walls. I have been waiting for this movie since the first trailer appeared this summer.  I mean come on you have Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost come together to save the beliefs of children and fight off an evil spirit known as Pitch.
