Immunizations at Walgreens Help Children Get@Shot at Life!

#GetAShot Vaccinations at Walgreens to Help a Child Get@Shot at Life! #shop

It's a great time of year to make sure all of your immunizations are up to date. I needed my seasonal flu vaccine, so I went to Walgreens to help support the Get a Shot-Give a Shot program. From September 2nd through October 13th, for every flu shot or other immunization you receive at Walgreens, you will help provide a life-saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign.  Isn't it sad that children in Tanzania are not even sure Continue Reading...

Tea Time with Sautéed Vegetable Wrap & Pasta Salad #TEArifficPairs

Tea Time with Sautéed Vegetable Wrap & Pasta Salad #TEArifficPairs

I am in denial that summer is coming to an end. I try to eat on my back deck as much as possible to enjoy the warm weather while it lasts. It can disappear pretty quickly up here in New England. I enjoy afternoon tea time with my lunch. I love to create fresh and healthy recipes for my lunches. For the summer, I often like fruit flavored ice tea. I headed to Walmart and selected the Lipton Raspberry Iced Tea Mix. Even though it's a sweet tea, there are only 80 calories per serving. Gotta love Continue Reading...

Hiking in New Hampshire with the Comfort of Icebreaker

Hiking in New Hampshire with Icebreaker

Hiking in New Hampshire is one of my favorite places to be. The fresh air and the views are truly amazing. The folks at Icebreaker contacted me to see if I would like to try some of their clothing. They specialize in sustainable marino wool from New Zealand. While I love marino wool, I was a bit skeptical about wearing it for workouts or summer hikes. I decided to try a hat, t-shirt, skirt and socks. I actually asked for a pair of shorts, but they were out of stock. I have never hiked in a Continue Reading...

BodyArmor Sports Drink Review

BODYARMOR Sports Drink - Should You Upgrade Yours? I was delighted to receive a pack of six flavors from the folks at BodyArmor.
