The best sunscreens 2014

I’ve used sunscreen since I was 12 years old, after getting a horrible case of sun poisoning while visiting a friend in Florida. My Aunt Mary handed me a bottle of “suntan lotion” that summer, and told me I’d have gorgeous skin forever if I used it. Like most 12 year olds, I wasn’t worried about my skin, but I had now seen the damage the sun can do. I’ve been using sunscreen ever since. Preventing sunburn is still on my mind during the warm months, but now I’m acutely aware of the sun’s part in dangerous skin cancers. And as a mom I know how sensitive babies and young kids’ skin can be. I’ve also investigated the impact chemicals can have on our overall health, and our body’s ability to cleanse, heal, and maintain it’s overall efficacy. There are significant differences between the various sun products out there–and I’m super picky about what goes into my beach bag, and onto my body. I want you to all have the healthiest, happiest summer yet. That means an absence of burns, and ending the summer with more of a glow than you started with. I was happy to wake up to…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

I spent some quality time with my son at his school this past weekend. It was an especially fantastic visit. He’s so busy, and he loves it, and that makes me one proud Mama bear. At breakfast on Sunday, he turned to me and said he hadn’t yet gotten me a Mother’s Day gift. Well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree this time around. I, too, have been so busy that I haven’t taken care of my own Mom. So, if you’re like us, I thought I’d share a list of ideas that light me up. Maybe something below will suit the Mother(s) in your life? The Tea Lover A friend calls this Breville Tea Maker the “Tea Robot”. What a treat to have the perfect temperature tea waiting for you in the morning. I added some of my favorite loose teas too. *This is what I want the most. I’m a connoisseur of sorts. The Luxe-ist While a gift certificate for a massage may never get used, going WITH your mom to the spa is always a great gift. The best. For my last minute local DC and VA friends, I personally love treatments at Salamander Resort….

Eat that cookie, drink that prosecco!

Dirty Little Secrets to Surviving Holiday Parties

It is possible to maintain your nutritional style and even thrive your way through the party season—just follow these tips! Eat first. Counting on your holiday office party to serve healthy food won’t always work, so be prepared. Eat something before the party begins to keep your blood sugar even and help you keep your resolve. If you walk in feeling hungry, you’ll end up having that extra cookie, or driving too many crackers into the gooey dip. Instead, eat a healthy protein at your desk or before you leave the house. The snack will stabilize your blood sugar and improve your personal staying power. Almonds, walnuts, nut butter on celery, a few bites of animal protein, or a Nutritional Style® smoothie all are great options. Choose whole foods. If you can manage to eat only or mostly whole foods when you go out, you’ll be ahead of the game the entire holiday season. Whole foods are foods with just one ingredient, such as celery, nuts, carrots, salmon, salad, and so on. That means avoid anything baked, goopy, creamy, oily, cheesy, or fatty, especially if you don’t know the ingredients. If you have to compromise, choose something that’s high in…
