My oldest was born in August and by the time Easter came around, she wasn’t even one. I looked for Easter baskets for infants but had no luck. This is when I made my first Easter basket and have continued to make them since.
I also noticed that that most Easter baskets bring too much candy. This is another reason why I enjoy making the girls’ baskets myself. I can limit how much candy they get and instead substitute the candy with healthy snacks.
Making the Easter Basket

It’s hard to stick to health resolutions. It can be especially difficult to resist a soft, warm cookie if your spouse just baked them up and is eating one right in front of you.
Moments like these are why many of us choose to get healthy with the social support of a significant other. The gentle peer pressure encourages us to stay on track, and even better, you and your partner are working towards something together, which unites you with a common experience and can be a powerful bonding opportunity.
On the other hand, the potentially stressful process could also cause some friction between the two of you, especially if one is less committed to the pursuit than the other. Here are some tips to help you both be successful in your health goals!

That’s because men’s and women’s bodies hold weight differently. Fat has different functions, and muscle mass comes into play too. This article gives a useful rundown on how men and women store fat differently.
While it is true that being a stay-at-home mama gives me the flexibility to shop any day of the week and avoid the crowds. Sometimes, I wait until the weekend to do my shopping, like most normal people. Why? Because most deals are available on these days! Especially when it’s a holiday weekend.
Honestly, I don’t wear make up 90% of the time but I do carry a few beauty essentials in my make up bag; especially on special events. As Valentine’s Day draws closer, I wanted to share some of the products I am crushing on and some that I have on my wish-list.
I have always been a little hesitant to use bold color but when I found NYX Cosmetics’ Soft Matte Lip Cremes, I snagged two colors; Ibiza and Prague. I am slowly adding more to my collection because I am seriously crushing on these.
