It has been a crazy busy time of year! It was senior year for my oldest and this last month was filled with proms, award ceremonies, sports banquets and of course graduation! I say it all the time…..time goes by so fast! Up next is college orientation – I cannot believe it.
We are so proud of all her accomplishments. She has already begun her two summer jobs and we have a few trips planned this summer and of course our beach days are ones we cherish so those will continue!
My stress level is through the roof! It took a lot of organizing, preparing, running around and meeting deadlines to get through these life events the last couple of months and that was for her mom! I never have felt so stressed. I am trying to get back into the swing of exercise but it has always been hard for me to stick to a routine. I went to Whole Foods the other day and came across some chocolate called Good Day Chocolate
You all know I love chocolate and this is so good! I am hoping it helps. At least it tastes good! I am also trying these stress vitamins from Olly
I do love a good gummy and these are just the thing to eat late afternoon when I crave a sweet! Some of the multivitamins I see are so big and taste vitaminy – you know what I mean! I am on the lookout for a good multivitamin for women over 40 so let me know if you have a recommendation.
What do you do to de-stress?
I am stressed and looking for a natural way to help!
I really have no idea what to get the teens this holiday season! lol! Well, they are a hard bunch to buy a gift for. It is nice to be able to open a present on Christmas but since this age group is very picky I tend to go with a gift card — which of course they do love. Here are my suggestions:
Yes a gift card – some may say they are not personal but teens do love them. What I do is wrap up a gift with it. My go to gift is a gift card to the movies and then wrap up some chocolate and treats with it! Simple and you are done!
QVC – they really are my go to site (or you can catch them on TV) – nice gifts, nicely wrapped and affordable. From hats to scarfs and more they really have a good selection for teens. I love the jewelry they have too – like these Honora 8.0mm Cultured Pearl Sterling Stud Earrings (Item #J294066) For approximately $22.00 you have a really nice pair of earrings and a cute matching jewelry bag to go with it.
Tech and Teens – For girls I think it is much easier as you can purchase accessories, jewelry, handbags and I am sure they will appreciate any type of technology! Same for teen boys – it can be tricky but a gift card, any electronics or brand name sweatshirt – think North Face or UnderArmour and your shopping for teens can be complete in a flash.
