Some Of My Most Popular Blog Tidbits

To celebrate my blog’s 4th anniversary, I got to share some of my most read articles on my morning show recently.  I only had time to share a few so I chose some of the posts that happen to be my favorite, too.  So check this out to see me make our homemade and very healthy yogurt parfait, the orthotic high heels that I sport that always gets compliments, Celebrity Makeup Artist’s Karen Hall‘s top mascsara pick (it is affordable, too) and more….oh and if you didn’t catch my error….I meant to say that KIND is a NON gmo food.  Hate when I mess up on camera, but it happens 😉



KIND provided several samples to try in our yogurt recipe.  My opinion about how much I love the KIND line is 100% my very own.
