If you want REALLY smooth legs try using an exfoliant (salt rub or a cleanser with grit in it) instead of shaving cream! It really works and it won't get caught up in the razor (like I thought it would).. My legs have never been smoother and just in time for SHORTS season!
Hello, my name is Maria, and I'm addicted to Special K "Chocolatey Pretzel Bars". They come six in a box and are a great SNACK! I have found myself eating enough to count as a meal on my nutrition tracker so I had to do something about it!
I have hardwood floors and THREE dogs! Needless to say I sweep everyday! I always had the problem with dust bunnies flying away and I never seemed to be able to collect them in the same pile.. I sprayed a little bit of Static Guard on my broom before sweeping and they collect marvelously! Give it a try!
I used to tell people "I LOVE water, as long as there's sugar and Kool-aid in it"! So obviously I struggled with the whole 8 a day thing. What I found helps is eating spicier food!

Whenever I went to the grocery store it seemed as though I walked out with SO many things I didn't need!

I L-O-V-E having clean, white sneakers! So when I'm about to leave the house I give them a quick wipe with either one of my daughters baby wipes or a Clorox wipe! It works wonders to keep them looking brand new!
