This time of the year nearly everyone takes time to celebrate Thanksgiving by counting their blessings and having a grateful heart. What would our lives look like if we develop an attitude of gratitude everyday in everything?
A positive attitude is linked to a number of health benefits both psychological and physical. Gratitude has the strongest link with mental well-being than any other character trait.
For years when my daughter still lived at home, we would travel nearly 100 miles southeast to the nearest Nordstrom’s. The destination shopping trip was our girl bonding time to discover the latest beauty products. Especially when we would attend the bi-annual Beauty Trend shows in the spring and fall. However, lately I’ve discovered right in my own backyard beauty items that are oldies but goodies.
Perhaps because I’ve lived in small town USA for the last 30 years that I’ve grown accustom to limited retail beauty options. However, I just recently discovered less is more when it comes to some of my beauty regiment products.

I don’t really follow professional or college football, only until a major game or the Super Bowl. I realize that when a player is standing on the sidelines or sitting on the bench, they are not involved in the football game. I see many men are standing on the sidelines when it comes to their health. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, research shows that many men only go to the doctor when they are sick.

Now that we are in November, it is time to once again change the face of men’s health (pun intended). Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement through the Movember Foundation by raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
Ever at a loss to find the perfect shade of lipstick? Are you growing tired of the same old same old selections to add a pop of color to your lips? Looking for more natural options?

The color purple. Many of us remember Steven Spielberg’s 1985 movie, The Color Purple. You also may recall in 2014 Pantone selected a purple, radiant orchid as it’s color of the year.

World Heart Day was founded in 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading causes of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year.
