Vitamin Benefits

Have you thought of taking vitamins? Have you looked into the benefits of taking vitamins? What’s the difference between Multivitamin and single vitamins? Do you know which ones you personally should take? 

 

I am going to break down each of these questions for you!
1 – Many people take vitamins because Doctors recommend them. You see commercials for Vitamins such a Everyday Vitamins, 1 day a Women/Men. Yes those are to get you informed and pick up the product. Some people research some just buy it because it was on TV.

2 -Reproduction, maintenance, growth and regulation of bodily processes. While taking a physical vitamin does you good having a healthy and balanced diet will provide you the vitamins and minerals you and your body need!  Though, This does not mean don’t take vitamins it just means if you don’t take them everyday you still have a source of getting vitamins.

3 – Taking a multi-vitamin are great! Multivitamins may contain many of these vitamins and minerals, but in varying forms and amounts. They can also contain other ingredients like herbs, amino acids and fatty acids.

4 – Maybe taking a test to you know which vitamins you need, maybe speaking with a doctor who can help you or maybe its you picking up a book, vitamin bottle or paper on vitamins to understand which vitamins to take! I have a great company I used to help me understand exactly with my lifestyle.

To you, Mini

IMG_1179.JPGYour little blue eyes look up at me, and I know you don’t know.

You don’t know that I don’t know what I’m doing.

You don’t remember all the times I’ve doubted myself and questioned my instinct.

You don’t know how I felt angry on the nights you wouldn’t sleep.

You don’t know how I cried and stressed about bottle feeding or breastfeeding. 

You don’t know about the times I thought I was failing.

There are a lot of things you don’t know, but when your blue eyes look up at me, there is one thing you do know. 

Your mom loves you. 

Me, your flawed mom who doesn’t always get it right, I love you. 

Your eyes see me trying to do what’s best for you, and sometimes that means I question what I’m doing.

Your eyes see me feeding you, and you don’t care how I do that.

Your eyes see that I care so much for you that I’d give up my own sleep, time, body, and so much more to give you the best. 

Your eyes see that your mom shows up for you any time of day or night, no matter how tired or grumpy she might be.

Your eyes see the love.

And when I look into your eyes and you look back, the love is all that matters.

With time, all the other struggles will fade away. 5 years from now it won’t matter how you slept, how you were fed, or how overwhelmed I sometimes felt.

To my baby, when I look into your eyes, my eyes light up. I hope you know that no matter what is going on, whatever struggles we may face together in the future, you have always been loved and will always be loved.  

T, Thank you for you making motherhood seem so easy. We are coming up on 5 months of having my best friend born. You are the best! ~ Mom

Guess who’s back?!

I am back…. 

After some family time, a interesting night out and some researching I know what my niche is. I know exactly why I wanted to blog. I am military spouse, I love my life. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon. I didn’t grow up in the projects. I grew up with a house, went to school but I didn’t live in the same house for 18 years, I didn’t grow up in the same city either. I didn’t get along with everyone. I had no filter..

 

I still don’t have have a filter.
And Nor will I ever.

So anyways,  I am here to say I am back. I am lifestyle writer, I am writing my journey of making it through the Navy with my husband, Being a young mom and Soon to be a college student.

Niche….

Over the passed few weeks I have blogged about different Ideas. At this point in time, I realize I need to find my Niche. I love blogging about everything, Though I do want to have a successful blog. It’s time to buckle down and get real with it. So I will be taking a few days away and trying to figure out what my niche is. What is it that I really do want to blog about.

 

If you have read my blogs please also do help me, I am a very chatty person. I can talk about a lot and maybe that’s what I do. But I truly love being new people and families into the Military Lifestyle.

 

Have an awesome weekend!!

Holiday Shopping

Holy Moly!! Can’t believe holiday festivals start in just a few weeks!

Here in California were I live Apple picking is becoming bigger and bigger every year! I seriously can’t wait to take my daughter and husband for the first time! This is my favorite childhood memory during the fall!!

There are so many fun parties around this time a year, Harvest, Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, White elephant party, secret santa, Work party, Christmas, Christmas eve and New Year’s eve party! Like wow!!!! But let’s kinda back it up to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is about being grateful for the friendship, memories and family! Has anyone noticed in the last 10 years how stores like Sears, Walmart, Kmart, Target, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Starbucks have forgot about it?

How all the CEO’s care about is MONEY! Really!?! They have their non-HR employees work and if they don’t work during holidays they are fired?? Really? While the CEO’s and HR are at home enjoying their holidays with their families! Why? Is it rude? YES!

Granted I do understand some people do not have families to go to and some are working multiple jobs to survive in this economy today! So taking 4 holidays off is really going to hurt the business?? NO it won’t!

Why can’t families spent Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years with their families? Why can’t you close your doors for a full 24 damn hours and let some have memories of their children, Nieces, Nephews, Aunt, Uncles, friends, grandparents, parents!!

As for me and my family, My husband is on duty every year during holiday season and he is defending our country, and Law Enforcement is too! But SHOPPING! Really? Paying your employees 4-6 hours on those holidays is really going to hurt their CEO’s? 

NO!

I truly wish CEO knew what it was like to live pay check to pay check. Have the stress of student loans, car debt, credit card debt was! They may have been their years ago(15+ years) but truly now many companies Ceo’s have their head so far up their ass they could careless about their employees. They only care about that $$$!

 

Tell me am I wrong for feeling like this? Does anyone else feel like this? Does anyone else work retail, Restaurants or Delivery Service, How do you feel??

Skin life

How much do you care about your skin? Do you look into the product such as Harsh Chemicals or Ingredients? Do you purchase because its trendy?

How many of you feel like Make up is a mask? You hide behind your true beauty, your true skin and the real you. How many of you feel as if Make up is a way of art? A way to show your personality?

Which one are you? Are you in middle? Love Make up but hate make up because how it destroys your skin??

Well your in luck, I have 2 women who can help you with both!
