New Ways to Save Your Health with AltoViva


I was given the opportunity to try out the all-in-one supplement created by AltoViva specifically for my blood type. Many people looking to optimize their health take a daily regimen of multivitamin, pro-biotics, and herbal supplements to help support their immune and digestive health. It can be a lot to keep up with. Just the other day I totally think I doubled up on my B12, Vitamin C, and Biotin because I couldn't remember if I had already taken them. I have a terrible memory. AltoViva Supplements wanted to simplify that regimen, and developed a … [Read more...]

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for MedImmune. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Did you know that November 17th is World Prematurity Day?

Sweaty Betty – Fun Clothes for Workouts

All Weather Protector Jacket

Back when I was first starting to get my weight on track, one of the problems I had with working out, or one of my excuses really, was that I didn't really have the clothes for it.

I recently found out about Sweaty Betty which is a website that is nothing but workout clothes. Not just one type either, they have workout apparel, yoga wear, running attire and even swim wear. So there are plenty of options for any type of … [Read more...]
