Arms up!

Here I’m using 5ld dumbbells in a sequence of arm exercises that can be done with in the gym or at home. I usually do 10-15 reps 4x each. Depending on your fitness goals you can go heavier in weight with less reps to bulk and build or lighter in weight with more reps to lean and tone.

Working Hands

O’Keefe’s Working Hands is a must have product all year round but especially for the winter season. This dry weather makes my hands a mess. I also stand on my feet all day full time on top of being a mom to a 14 month old i don’t get a lot of free time to get a pedicure. It seriously is magic and i suggest all of you girls and guys run out and get this ASAP!

Jump Jump!


Today we had scheduled a play date with my longest and dearest friend and her daughter who is only a week younger than my son. Rockin Jump Trampoline Park in Wayne, NJ has toddler time every morning from 9-11. We basically had the whole place to ourselves. The babies didn’t jump that much but they definitely had a good time together. We signed the waiver online the night before to save us some time and we paid $18 a piece at the desk. We received socks for us and the kids and a wrist band. The place was super clean and we can’t wait to go back!

Washing Your Fruit


IMG_2900.jpgI had bought grapes a couple weeks ago and did my usual rinsing. Once they dried I put them away. A couple days later I noticed they had a funny chemical taste. Actually, they were disgusting! I threw the whole thing in the trash and didn’t buy them again. Recently I had saw an interesting article about removing the wax off an apple with white vinegar. I decided to buy the grapes and soak them in water with some white vinegar for about a half hour. It definitely worked. The grapes taste amazing with no chemical residue. I didn’t measure exactly how much water to vinegar so if you decide to try this I would suggest adding the water first and then counting to 3 when pouring the vinegar and swish them around.
