Getting Ready For The Holidays: Gaiam Yoga Mat Review

Gaiam has a yoga mat for every yogi’s preference, including sticky, extra-thick, phthalate-free, eco-friendly, printed yoga mats and many other options. Click here to view the yoga mat guide if you need help choosing the right type for your needs. Whether you need a premium thick yoga mat or would like to buy an affordable option to get started, Gaiam is the one-stop resource for all things yoga.

What I love about Gaiam is the first thing you read is that they will help you pick the correct mat for you! I also love the selection so much so it actually took me a few days to decide which mat I wanted. Another really awesome feature is that you can actually customize your mat to your specific taste. I personally have never seen this before so it's a really nice feature. Below is the mat I finally decided to go with!
Description
Our eco friendly reversible yoga mat is perfect for someone looking for a clean, versatile yoga mat. The not-too-thick 3mm cushioning offers excellent grip, padding and stability. This mat is made from non-toxic TPE, which contains no PVC or latex. As always, Gaiam is committed to protecting and preserving our planet's natural resources. Taiwan.

Our Eco-Friendly Reversible Yoga Mat
•Textured nonslip surface
•Provides cushion for your body
•Lightweight and durable
•Solid construction

I am extremely happy with my mat! I love that the mat does not slip all over when doing my yoga or exercises. For some reason I love the feel of the material on my toes. I can't even begin to describe the feel but it soft & squishy. Plus it's pretty :) Below are few of my favorites & you will be able to see why it was so hard to pick. This not because of how pretty the mats are but the features








I love this mat

Dial Diaries: Dial NutriSkin With Fruit Oil Ultra Hydrating Body Wash Review

A fresh twist on Moisture
Who says moisture has to be creamy

Dial Diaries: Dial Healthier You Skin Nutrition 101 The Dial® Nutriskin Story

The Dial Nutriskin Story

Dial is always looking for new ways to make our customers happy - so when we noticed that we were listening to a pattern of people discussing how greasy and heavy standard moisturizing body washes feel, we sprung into action to look for a solution that would provide moisture but still leave skin feeling light and fresh.


In our research, natural fruit oils quickly emerged as a promising new solution. Fruit oils such as grape, cherry, orange and lemon are imagined to have a ‘lighter’ consistency than other heavier oils and butters, such as the soybean, sunflower, shea and cocoa butter extracts that have been used in moisturizing products for decades. Just as fruit is naturally a low-fat food to eat, it is also ‘light’ on your skin, whereas butters and vegetable oils are high in fat and can give your skin the same heavy, bloated feeling that your stomach would have after eating a high-fat meal.

This makes perfect sense to use oils from fruits which of course will be lighter. I received the Cherry Seed Oil & Mint Body Wash which smells awesome by the way :) I have a review of this product click here to read the review


Both the Grape Seed Oil and Cherry Seed Oil used in the Dial® NutriSkin™ body washes function as emollient oils, which are known to help hydrate skin. These light yet deeply moisturizing oils are captured in micro-beads, which are evenly distributed throughout the formula. The formula also contains a positively charged cationic polymer that attaches to negatively charged skin, which imparts moisturization and gives skin a soft, smooth feel.

All opinions are solely mine & I was not compensated for this post. I did receive a product(s) to properly conduct a review. Most information can be found at DialNutriSkin.com

Dial Diaries: Dial Healthier You Skin Nutrition 101 What Causes Dry Skin?

What Causes Dry Skin?


So if you are like me you know one cause of Dry Skin = Cold Weather. I know when the cold rolls around it's a never ending battle fighting the effects of the weather. The dryness of my skin leads to cracking which if not properly taken care of can lead to bleeding. As of right now my skin feels & looks like alligator skin.

10 Creative Ways to Maintain a Successful Marriage

10 Creative Ways to Maintain a Successful Marriage


When you first get married, your relationship is filled with passion and desire. Although you may fall in love with your husband or wife again with each passing day, you still have to compete with work, the kids and just life in general. However, it does not have to be this way. It is possible to maintain a successful marriage that is full of passion and intimacy for many, many more years to come.
Little things go a long way in a marriage where both people need to feel needed and desired. However, it is not entirely sexual. Your spouse needs to know that you appreciate him or her. They need to feel that they are doing all that they should be in the household as well as in the relationship. If they do not, they may tend to shy away from intimacy. Something as subtle as a wink or a kiss on the cheek can be all it takes to keep the spark alive within a relationship.
Marriage does not come with an instruction manual and you are not going to find foolproof formula to follow. However, you can do a few simple things to help maintain a successful marriage, such as:
1. Begin every day by saying a kind word to one another. For instance, if your husband or wife is dressing for work, mention how attractive he or she looks that day. Tell him or her that your greatest desire is to lie there in bed with them all day long. If you do not see your spouse first thing in the morning because of schedule conflicts, leave a note on the bathroom mirror or somewhere he or she is sure to see it.
2. Leave a voice mail, send an email or text your husband or wife sometime during the day to say you are thinking of them.
3. Notice little accomplishments that your spouse has done, such as tidying a room or mowing the lawn.
4. Take the time to flirt with your spouse.
5. Always treat your spouse with respect.
6. Listen to your spouse and hear what they have to say.
7. Trust your spouse without worry or second-guessing.
8. Remember to spend time just being a couple. Make a date night so you can reconnect with one another, maintaining the spark that caused you to fall in love in the first place.
9. Communicate with your spouse. Always let him or her know how you feel and take the time to listen to their thoughts and feelings as well.
10. Be creative in your love life and do not be afraid to experience new things together.
