Tips for Fall and Skin Care Awareness Month

Fall skin care regimens are different than what to use during summer months.  September is Skin Care Awareness Month.

Do Recycle in Your Bathroom?

It was just about a year ago that Johnson and Johnson rolled out a campaign to remind consumers to recycle products in their bathrooms. Depending on where you live, most of us are used to recycling cans, milk jugs, cereal boxes, cracker boxes, yogurt containers and anything else with the correct number on the bottom and the familiar recycling sign.

Do you BENTO?

A bento box is a packed lunch box with compartments.  The idea comes from Japan where they have been using bento for a very long time for lunches.  We have jumped on the bandwagon for bringing bento lunches to work.  We were getting bored with lunch and spending more than we would like to to eat out every day.  With all the great options of containers with sections, it has become a topic of conversation each morning as to what is in our bento today. Why do we like bento boxes? We tend to eat more leftovers if they are

Buff it out!  Summer is winding down and fall is here.  We need to regroup and start fresh.  Apothederm Body Prep Scrub is the perfect go to product that gives a quick fix to dull skin.  Use 2 to 3 times per week in the shower on elbows, knees, feet and other areas that are rough and need a pick me up.

Scandal: Love the show, now wear the clothes

Each season there are shows that delight each of us in our own way. Whether you like zombies, reality, suspense, comedy or drama, the new fall lineups bring new shows and the answers to shows that were on hiatus over the summer.  One show that our office talks nonstop about is Scandal on ABC and how we love Olivia Pope, her Gladiators and all the chaos in her life and she handles it.
