It’s warm, it’s cold. It’s cold, it’s warm. Ah, the story of spring. The secret to dressing for spring? Layers. Check out my recent Today Show segment for tips on how to dress in layers for spring for you and your guy.
Quick – what’s better for you a body scrub or a dry brush? Last week I was on The Talk on CBS giving the audience a quiz on shower smarts. You’d be surprised how even the smallest changes to your shower skin care routine can make a major difference, especially when it comes to dryness. Now that we are moving into winter, it’s even more important to think about how you take care of your skin in the shower. The first thing you should do is look for a super hydrating body wash. I like Olay Ultra Moisture Body wash, which will keep your skin clean, refreshed, and moisturized all day.
So how shower smart are you? Watch here and take my shower smart quiz.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I am a huge fan of my Vitamix. Well, the Good Day New York producers apparently do. I was called by a producer friend and assumed she wanted me to do a beauty or fashion segment. But, it was my love for my Vitamix they wanted me to come on air and talk about. Now, I am no chef, but the Vitamix helps your cooking look professional. My husband and I use it daily – whether it’s a morning smoothie, blending a sauce for dinner, or using raw almonds to make almond butter when we have a craving.
Now, the Vitamix is amazing – it can chop, blend, puree, heat up soups, make cold desserts. But, there is a but. It’s pricey. The top model is about $650. You can get a lower priced model for about $350. I can promise you won’t be disappointed with its performance. Plus, it’s so easy to clean. No base to unscrew. Just add in detergent, a bit of water, set to the cleaning mode and in 60 seconds it’s squeaky clean. You can pick one up at most department stores or Williams Sonoma.
Eating healthy is also a must in our home. Instead of mashed potatoes, we use our Vitamix to make “Cauliflower Mash.” It’s pretty much on the menu weekly in our home.
Now, dessert is not something we do regularly in our home. We skipped dessert for months leading up to our wedding. But lately, we have been in the mood for treats. Here’s a healthy dessert that is perfectly in style for fall.
