Here is an easy trick to have the yummiest Hot Cocoa in the neighborhood... Mint tea bags. Pour your hot water over a mint tea bag and let sit for 20- 30 seconds. Then , add in your hot cocoa, milk or cream. The hint of mint makes it taste like a thin mint cookie!
But fear not... if you don't have mint tea, a candy cane will do.
This morning... before anyone else was awake... the first thing I did was turn on the lights of my Christmas tree. I LOVE it when my home is decorated for the holidays. So, I waited as long as I could... but yesterday was D Day. DECORATING DAY!
Tree up, wreaths, up, Snowman up...
Cookies in the oven, Christmas Music on...
Seriously... what's not to love about it?
Check out all my pics from yesterday!
Don't fight it... it's oddly hilarious.
And no... it isn't heavy. It's so light you won't even know its there. It's a Pedometer. New studies show that by wearing a pedometer you are more likely tomove, burn more calories, and lose weight.
Researchers at an Indiana University saw that the "self challenge" aspect of wearing a pedometer is the main reason. We are competitive by nature. And most people in the study wanted their numbers to go up each day... not down. Just by wearing a pedometer and nothing else, the average weight loss for each in the study was 3 lbs in 12 weeks. And dont worry if you dont want to buy one... you can download free pedometer apps to your phone.

There really may be an app for everything now.
This meditation app walks you through multiple 30 minute meditation routines. Reviews say its a great to way to start. Learning how to unplug...while completely plugged in,
Well... it was nice while it lasted. I used to think that one less step meant one less thing to do. But now I know it's just cheating myself and my skin. Using Make Up wipes at night instead of washing your face is ultimately bad for your skin.
In the simplest of terms... by not rinsing your face you are still leaving tons of residue from the wipe and your make up on your skin. And over time... this build up robs your skin of what it needs to look its best.
So, for once in a while usage its fine. But for everyday use...Bye bye make up wipes.
