Things to Consider as Your Relatives Age

Things to Consider as Your Relatives Age

Everyone gets older with time. It’s an inevitable part of life, but the older you get, the more support you may need. That is why it is essential for you to take this into account when saving for retirement, but also when you may be making decisions for your parents or grandparents as they age.

If they are staying in their own home, your first priority is to ensure that the inside of the home is safe and secure. Consider adding a chair lift on the stairs, and make sure there isn’t even the slightest possibility to slip on something. If a better option is moving your relative into an assisted care facility it is critical for older people to take care of their mental and physical health at all times. More than 2 million people in America over the age of 65 suffer from some form of depression so it is something we need to be aware of.

Microglo Microdermabrasion System Review

Microglo Microdermabrasion System Review

I started using the Microglo Dermabrasion Kit back in January as I mentioned in my Life Lately post at the end of the month. I followed it up partway through my 12 week treatment in March with an updateIf you aren't familiar with this system, it is an at-home microdermabrasion system. As far as microdermabrasion systems go, this one is a really good deal. It's currently only $115 and you can use code LBAMBRICK for another 20% off. I've had a facial with microdermabrasion and it was pricey. Being able to do it at home in only 5 minutes a week is really convenient, especially for a time-pressed mommy like me. The instructions are really clear and there is even a video you can watch to help you. It took me a little bit to get the hang of how to hold it to best to make sure I am exfoliating my skin most effectively.

Love Your Postpartum Self

Love Your Postpartum Self
As my youngest, and probably last child grows more into her toddler stage, I keep reflecting on her as a newborn and her older sister as a newborn. I even remember what it was like when I was pregnant with them and how my body changed. And then how it changed after giving birth! Motherhood is a huge learning curve for all women. Everyone’s experience of pregnancy, birth and the early days with their baby is totally different. Having a baby brings with it so many changes, to your lifestyle, relationships, and of course, let's not forget your body, too. After giving birth, many women discover that their body feels a lot different than it did before pregnancy and may find it takes a little adjustment to get used to it. This feeling of change comes as no surprise; after all, your body has been pretty busy growing a tiny human being for the past 40 weeks!

Spring Break Vacation Recap


Last Tuesday we came back from our week long vacation in Arizona. We stay with my in-laws who live a little outside of Phoenix. This is the third year we have spent spring break there and we seem to keep coming back! It's so much fun and getting that taste of warm weather before we get it in the midwest gives us just enough Vitamin D to push on through the cold early spring!
