One of the things I do for myself, simply because I enjoy it, is buy pretty, foaming hand soap for all of our sinks.  It’s such a small thing to do but I like the way it looks.  It makes me feel fancy and pampered, which is a nice feeling. [...]

Tips to Keep You Active All Season So You Can Address Your Heart http://joyslife.com/tips-to-keep-you-active-all-season/ http://joyslife.com/tips-to-keep-you-active-all-season/#respond Tue, 24 Feb 2015 23:31:59 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=39203 This post is sponsored by Campbell Soup Company.

The toughest time of the year for me to stay active is the winter.  I just want to crawl under a bunch of blankets and hibernate until the sun hits me in Spring and I feel like crawling back out.  Spring is when I have the most energy and feel like I can achieve anything.  However, thinking that way is what packs on the pounds, makes my [...]

I’ve been carrying a few American Express gift cards in my wallet for the last two years.  I’d partially used each one which left them with random amounts that made purchasing some things a clumsy experience.  “I don’t know how much is on this can you run it anyway?” “Can I use that one with this one and then pay cash for the rest?”  Ugh.  Plus, I rarely remembered that I had them and when [...]

Today I’m shouting, “FINALLY!” because it’s been almost a year since I made this lamp and the lampshade has stayed plain and boring this whole time.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with it until today.  I just love this “Maps of the World” paper by Hazel & Ruby so much that I wanted to cover more things with it.  I mean it was just last week when [...]
