New Years Resolution # 1 make the skin you have the skin you love NATURALLY #noticethelotus #targethaul #dermae

I come to the acceptation stage that as a Gen Xer my actions from my 20's & 30's were not always the best. Now I'm looking for healthy & natural options to become a permanent  part of my lifestyle.
Last year my BIG resolution was finding these option in the food I was putting IN my body- I did ok...SO this year my #1 Resolution is going to be finding the natural option for what I put ON my body- Fine lines,crow's feet, dark circles under my eyes, and know all those menacing signs of LIVING! These need to be addressed, and I'm not one to  put on a full face of make-up every day so I needed to find a creme or  lotion where I could see results in my face even going Au Natural!

I have been using the derma e eye lift  along with a few other great cremes  and the results are amazing. You only need a tiny dab this products because a little goes a looong way! Its such a rich creamy formula and made my eyes look MORE awake. I started using it  and after just a few days saw the difference in my under eye circles was less dark and puffy. The Day/Night Cremes are so hydrating!

In 2016 Derma e  proudly announce the arrival of three of their best selling facial moisturizers at Target -  plus their best-selling eye creme! I know I can hardly wait, my sample packs will get me through the last few days of 2015 and then I can get some full size bottles to add to my skin care routine!  

#NOTICETHELOTUS at Target 2016...derma e has arrived!

Great idea to make holiday baking a little easier -#REVIEW

It's the Holiday Season...With the whoop-de-do and hickory dock.  Our family love cooking/baking  at Christmas time while listening to Holiday Music. It's experience for the whole family to enjoy together with end result is delicious.

We attend a few Holiday Parties and I like to give the Host a Fancy Platter that we have filled with cookies as a Host Gift.
We do a few buffet style meals so we bring a  main dish and a dessert-so for us its extra platters of cookies. Because we attend a few parties and 2 of them have over 75+ guest we like to bake a mix of homemade and semi-homemade.

One company that specializes in handmade treats, perfect for a holiday get together iss Matthews 1812 House ,  they have tasty and pre-made desserts and snacks are a great alternative to baking all day.

Items like Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Torte, Fruitcake Bites, Chocolate-Dipped Hazelnut Cookies and so much more.

It's also nice to have a plate of these delectable cookies out if unexpected guest just drop in! It's easy to drizzle a little extra melted chocolate over a Sparkling  Chocolate Cookie  or jazz up a Molasses cookie with a sweet glaze and green & red nonpareils.

Even if you LOVE to bake check out this sight! It's the Holiday you
deserved one great treat you don'y have to bake yourself!
