Get your best hair

I've been using the hair supplement, Viviscal, for two years now and find it's worth every penny. Other supplements claim to thicken hair, but this is the first product where I've actually seen results. According to Viviscal's website, in the 1980s a Scandinavian professor discovered that the Inuits' great hair and skin was due to their fish- and protein-rich diet. What became of this is Viviscal's key ingredient: AminoMar C Marine Complex (shark cartilage and oyster extract powder).

The supplement has clinical studies and testimonials to back up its work and offers a money-back guarantee. After being unhappy with my hair for several years, my good hair days now far outweigh the bad days. Viviscal is available at most discount retailers. Be sure to look inside the box for a $5 off coupon.

Clarity for your diet

I’ve recently started the book “Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?” by Dr. Mark Hyman, and even just a couple of chapters in, I’ve found it to be a wealth of information that helps makes sense of all the conflicting dietary recommendations out there. Dr. Hyman explains the logic — and sometimes the flaws — behind various guidelines from the past few decades. He also makes clear recommendations of his own on what actually constitutes healthy eating. I’d highly recommend “Food” as a great resource for anyone who wants to go beyond fad diets and get a bigger picture of what to eat and why.

As the seasons changed I realized I needed to update my wardrobe a bit, including shoes. I'm not the kind of girl who has an entire closet to herself and dozens and dozens of shoes. I'm pretty practical. But my membership to JustFab has been worth it. Yes, it is a membership but if you don't want a new pair of shoes that month just hit the skip button between the first and the fifth of each month. I skipped the entire year last year. There's no penalty for skipping, you just have to remember to. And if you don't, like I did a couple times this year, you have store credit. I just got my new kicks and I love them!
