Bee Well http://www.poshmom.com/blog/2015/02/05/bee-well/ http://www.poshmom.com/blog/2015/02/05/bee-well/#comments Thu, 05 Feb 2015 10:00:22 +0000 posh mom http://www.poshmom.com/?p=7333 unnamed1Honeydrop Beverages

We’re not ones for cleanses. Paying to be deprived and restricted to 1,000 calories (or less!), doesn’t strike us as healthy or realistic, but that doesn’t mean we don’t believe that we’re in need of a little detox from time to time. With that in mind we were excited to try a new line of nutritious cold-pressed juices from Honeydrop Beverages, all of which were designed with detox in mind.
The juices are packed with antioxidants and nutritive ingredients, sweetened only with pure, raw honey. Two flavors are available Apple Ginger Lemon Daily Immunity. Neither of the blends are ever heated meaning they not only retain all of their nutritional potency but also the pollens that have been shown to help alleviate allergies.
Drinking one of these first thing in the morning is a great way to amp up our typical morning lemon juice and water mix to set us on the right track for a clean and healthy day.
Better yet down the Lemon Cayenne Cleanse pre workout and watch your energy sore.
Dish with us: Do you believe in cleanses?

Who has time to call in sick from work? Let alone that calling in sick from mommy duties is never an option. However we've learned over the years that if we're not good to ourselves, we're useless to anyone else, which is why when we were hit with the sniffles we turned to Dr Teal’s Foaming Bath ($5.99).

Nike is the unequivocal leader when it comes to golf gear. There is no doubt that if you find the right product you will up your game near instantaneously. They test their gear on actual athletes and are always leading the way in terms of innovation. The Nike Method Mod 30 Golf Putter ($299) is a perfect example of a spot on marriage of form and function.

We've been using this putter for just about a week and we can already see how much more precise we can be about where exactly we want our balls to roll meaning that we end up with a significantly higher rate of successful putts (and no lectures about form from the hubbies!).

The lightweight ball is a travel-friendly and effective tool to tone your whole body and works your core the whole way through. It comes with a a full length DVD workout led by fitness instructor Tanja Djelevic, which combines Pilates, yoga and strength moves. Not only is the workout effective (we recommend at least three times a week for optimal results), but it’s low impact so you don’t have to fret over your joints.

Beauty Rituals You Should Continue Year Round http://www.poshmom.com/blog/2015/01/23/beauty-rituals-you-should-continue-year-round/ http://www.poshmom.com/blog/2015/01/23/beauty-rituals-you-should-continue-year-round/#comments Fri, 23 Jan 2015 10:00:53 +0000 posh mom http://www.poshmom.com/?p=7302 Don't let up when it comes to these musts

Let’s face it, now that the motivation of tiny bikinis and warm summer afternoons has passed, our normal beauty routine tends fall behind. However, regardless if you’re hitting the slopes or in hibernation mode it’s crucial you keep up with a few beauty rituals regularly. Here's a look at three musts according to the experts.

  • Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen. Don’t be fooled by lower temperatures, overcast skies or rainy days. UV rays are just as strong when hitting the slopes as they are on the beach. “The easiest way to prevent sun damage and protect your skin is to apply an SPF of at least 30 every day - not to mention, look younger. Reapplying every 2 hours if in the sun is critical as well” says Dr. Nussbaum, Dermatologist and Brand Spokesperson for Sebamed.
  • Use Hair Masks Regularly. Do you color your hair, straighten it a few times a week or use a lot of hair spray? Adding chemicals, applying heat or using products are habits that we all find hard to kick, and can come with some unwanted side effects. Anna Urban, CEO of AVIVA notes that “you should be applying a hair mask like Aviva’s Hair Rescue Renewal Masque 1-2 times per week to repair damage and restore elastic, while replenishing the moisture which often depletes from dry summer heat and the cold winter air.”
  • Wax Even Through Winter. Let’s face it, as the temperature drop [...]

  • Wax Even Through Winter. Let’s face it, as the temperature drop we are inevitably becoming a little bit lazier with our normal waxing routine and the motivation for tiny bikinis and warm summer afternoons pass. Noemi Grupenmager, founder and CEO of Uni K Wax Centers notes that “maintaining regular waxes year-round will benefit you in the long run because waxing weakens the hair follicle, causing hair to grow back slower, lighter and thinner over time. Dry, winter hair is more likely to break when waxing, causing it to grow back faster and thicker, so you want to keep skin hydrated and healthy (ie. drink lots of water and exfoliate regularly.)”
