Healthy Holidays with Arbonne Essentials

I don’t talk about it much here but I’m an Arbonne Independent Consultant. I don’t want to go into full detail because this isn’t a post about Arbonne exactly but just know that I signed on because I love their products, the ingredients, how they are tested, etc. I just think they are great quality for all of their lines (skincare, beauty, and health products).

A Personal Health Plan with Arbonne Essentials

As you might know, I signed up to be an Arbonne Independent Consultant a few months ago because I loved their products so much.

My Playground

Party All Night

What a busy weekend!  Friday was spent just cleaning the house and doing homework.  Saturday was busy, busy getting ready for my friend Ida from college to come in for a visit.  She was only staying the night but it was bound to be loads of fun.  She only lives about 2.5 hours away and we’ve never really spent the weekend together (here or at

Lots of Girl Time

It’s the weekend!  Well, for me anyway.  Today is a Friday class schedule at school and I don’t have classes on Fridays so Woohoo!  The plans for the next 5 days are lots and lots of homework and lots of housework.  I also plan on hitting the gym a lot with Rob.  Other than that, we have nothing to do!  No Thanksgiving dinner plans either.
