Botox Do’s and Don’ts

Botox injections are great for improving certain features of your face, but it is still a treatment that must be approached with care. In order for the Botox injections to be successful and look their best, there are a few basic do’s and don’ts to remember. We’re going to go over some of them in this article.

Do: Work with a Good Injector or Doctor

Even though its main function is for aesthetics, a Botox injection is still considered a medical procedure that must be approached with care. In order to have a successful treatment, you need to work with a skilled injector.

Botox produces near instant results, which means you can start seeing changes as soon as four hours after the treatment. Another product that is usually used alongside Botox is Dysport, a treatment for removing deep wrinkles. A good tip is to find the best Botox injector near you for the best results.

Some clinics such as Your Laser Skin Care in Los Angeles have great reputation for Botox injections. Find out more about the one near you, get references or recommendations from friends who have tried the treatments and work with the best injector you can find.

Don’t: Lay Down or Exercise After Treatments

Although the effects of Botox are almost instantaneous by nature, there are still a few things you shouldn’t do after treatment. Many Los Angeles Botox specialists advise against exercising after treatment. When setting the appointment for your next visit to the clinic, find a day during which you don’t have to do heavy exercise or anything serious.

It is also a good idea not to lie down after the Botox treatment. This is something you must avoid in order to get the best results, especially during the 4 to 5 hours after the Botox injection.

The time needed for the Botox injection to fully set varies from patient to patient, but it usually takes full effect in around 7 days. Listen to your doctor and follow the instructions of other things to avoid during this period. For example, you may want to avoid taking Aspirin or other similar drugs after a Botox injection to prevent excess bleeding.

Do: Follow Your Treatment Schedule

Although Botox offers instant results, the treatment is not meant to produce permanent effects. If you like the result of Botox injections after your first treatment, you should also follow the treatment schedule suggested by your doctor. Usually, you need to return for follow-up injections after 3 to 4 months.

Follow-up treatments will help keep wrinkles away. It is also great for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and for adding new injections where they’re needed. You can even ask your doctor to suggest other treatments to complete the set, such as laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers.

These simple do’s and don’ts are all you need to remember when going on a Botox treatment regime. The procedure is more modern than ever, so there is no need to worry about excessive downtime or unwanted side effects. Find a reputable, skilled injector and get your own treatment started in no time.

Most people that see me walking down the street with my kids or in my kitchen slaving away at a cake would think that I’m a poker fanatic.   To be honest it kind of surprised me, too.  I had played a little bit of 5 card draw and 5 card stud with my family while I was younger, but didn’t really fall in love with poker until I played in a Texas Holdem style poker tournament with some friends.  It was a good mix of men and women, some who thought they were a shoe-in for first place and others like me who needed a cheat-sheet to see whether a straight beats a flush.  That night was soooo much fun!  The best part about poker and especially tournament-style is that even an amateur can have their day, and that’s exactly what happened.  My best friend who was another female had played even less than me ended up winning the whole thing (I came in 3rd, our friends still can’t believe we did so well).

Ever since that night I’ve been completely hooked on poker, and especially the World Series of Poker.  That’s the tournament where the biggest and best compete to win massive amounts of money and the sought after bracelet that shows everyone who to watch out for next time they’re at the table.  Many of the best players in the world have so much character and it really elevates the fun in watching them.  A lot of other women probably pull for Annie Duke as it’s cool to see her beat up on the men, but my personal favorite is Phil Hellmuth, who is a poker savant that is capable of having a hilarious and epic meltdown every now and then.  One thing I like about the World Series of Poker (or WSOP) is that no-name folks like you or me practice-up their game and can end up making the big show and even winning it.   My husband always talks about how Chris Moneymaker, an accountant and not a professional poker player at the time, won to 2003 World Series of Poker after really just playing online.  He turned his $40 entry fee into a fortune.    Through the World Series of Poker website you could chase that same dream by playing online in games that are just for fun, and (for those brave enough) to go test out their skills at tournaments all around the country.  The site has all of the details of the WSOP players and events, too.  This is actually a great time to check out the site as right now the WSOP is in full swing.  I haven’t played in any of the events but really enjoy watching it on TV.  Each hand is exciting and I learn a lot by just watching.  I must say as a side-bar tidbit that the commentators for the WSOP are phenomenal…. other sports commentators should listen and take some notes!


Poker brings together so many great things: 

  • There’s the social side of itwhich can be fun but also brings about the layer of psychology and reading people.  “Are they betting big because they have a good hand or is it all a bluff?  Hmm, they keep looking down at their cards… I think they’re bluffing.  I call!”
  • It involves a lot of mathin trying to figure out all of the different permutations of card combinations for your cards (and if you’re smart and fast enough, running those same calculations for your opponents)!
  • It has competitionwhich I love, and for the WSOP the biggest and best.  I love all or nothing tournaments like the WSOP… just like March Madness for basketball,  one bad move and you’re done!
  • And there’s the underdog element.  If beginners like my friend and I could place 1stand 3rd amongst our poker-playing friends, anyone else could do it too.


I definitely recommend having a poker night with some buddies if you’ve never done it before.  Print out some cheat-sheets for the beginners and have a buy-in amount that everyone is comfortable with.  Check out the World Series of Poker website as they have tons of information on the thrilling WSOP tournament (including chip counts, bios, etc.), other games and events going on, poker tips, strategy, and more.  It’s an awesome all-in-one go-to site for poker whether the person is a  seasoned player or brand new to the game.

    Packing Tips for Travel and Win a Yellowstone National Park Adventure 

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


    Win a Yellowstone National Park Adventure 

    Yellowstone National Park should be on every person’s bucket list.  Those who have been say there is nothing like it, and it’s legendary beauty is known throughout the world with millions flocking there each year.  The park’s boundaries stretch across three states and has vastly different landscapes throughout the park.  Much of that is attributable to volcanic eruptions dating back 2 million years.  The area has more geysers and hot springs  than the rest of the world combined, some with the most gorgeous limestone terraces.  The mountains, plateaus, rivers, canyons and lush forests stretch on-and-on as far as the eye can see (and then some).  Although the park is massive (3,472 square miles!), the roadways and grounds throughout the park are perfectly accommodating without impeding on the park’s paradise-like appeal.  From bison to bears, moose to elk, otters to badgers Yellowstone is a mecca for wildlife enthusiasts too.

    Packing Tips

    Well there is some great news, Atlantic® Luggage is having a sweepstakes for the ages with the chance to win a trip for four to Yellowstone!  Over the course of the trip (4 days and 3 nights) your time could be filled soaking up all of the gorgeous sights and taking up memorable activities like biking, fly fishing, kayaking or just hiking one of the thousands of trails that the park has to offer!  The sweepstakes runs from 10/1 through 10/31, with the winner chosen within 30 days after the close of that period.  It’s easy to enter, just go to the following link and fill out the sweepstakes form

    trip to Yellowstone is a life-changing experience for anyone.  A family trip there will bring everyone closer and leave impressions of nature that will last a lifetime.  I can’t think of a better place to get away from the hustle and bustle, the traffic on the roads, the boss, the phone…all of that!  Just decompress while exploring and hiking our most beautiful national treasures, that’s what it’s all about.  The clean air and peaceful natural sounds are therapy for the mind and soul, and your bodies will get a great workout each day in the park.

    If you happen to be the lucky winner or are just heading to Yellowstone remember to pack light and pass on those items that aren’t essential.  “Pack light and pack tight” as my mom used to say (she and I still disagree on packing strategy… I’m more of a “roller” for shirts and pants while she is a “fold and stacker”).  In addition to rolling clothes, here are some other packing tips that have treated me well over the years.

    ·         Utilize every nook and cranny, especially the insides of shoes.  You can fit socks and even rolled up shirts inside a shoe.  I usually pack a bunch of socks into plastic baggies, then place those baggies inside my shoes.

    ·        I always keep on-hand a handful of those travel sized shampoo bottles (the kind they give out at hotels).  When traveling I then reuse them for shampoo, conditioner, hair gel and more.  They are perfect for saving space, and are small enough so they won’t get confiscated at the airport.

    ·         I picked up a couple of cheap bright bags that are great for holding my bras, valuables, etc.  Having different colors like bright orange and  green has been clutch when having to grab something in the dark and easily telling the difference in bags.

    ·         Using tissue paper inside some folded items can reduce wrinkles and help keep their shape/form

    ·         Shoe bags are a great investment.  Before I picked some up, a large portion of my shoes dings and scratches came from traveling.   It’s a cheap solution to what could be an expensive problem (let’s face it, shoes aren’t cheap!)

    Be sure to check out Atlantic® Luggage and the current Special offer on Atlantic Luggage 21” Spinner from Amazon. It carries a ton and has spinner wheels (love those!) and comes in a variety of sizes and colors (black, purple and my personal favorite turquoise).  The have a 10 year warranty and are very durable, yet still look sleek.

    #TBBloodTest - Most Accurate Way to Test for TB infection #IC #AD

    “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

    About 5 years ago, I had to take a TB Blood Test and i remember having to wait for days to receive the result. It was not very convenient because my doctor’s office was about 45 minutes each way, (plus the usual parking fees, waiting room, and other delays). The doctor told me to wait for a reaction and that I should go back to the office at that time so they could measure the size of hard area or swelling. The test results would be determined by the size of the bump. Unfortunately, my bump had raised more than normal size. I had the feeling that they would give me a positive result because of it. I convinced myself that I was a healthy person with no high risk and no exposed to a TB infection. I finally went back to the office and the result came out as positive. For that reason, they wanted me to do another lab check, which is an X ray. Not only would I have to spend hours to drive to the lab, but I was also required to pay medical expenses. My mom told me that i shouldn’t have TB because I had been vaccinated with BCG when i was a kid. I was very relieved when the X ray turned out negative, but it was quite an experience and I am very excited that there’s an alternative out there for you to try. The  TB Blood Test is a wonderful product to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) infection. Possibly the best part about it is that it so much more advanced that the old process that I went through (the standard skin test that I did and many of you also took hadn’t changed much at all over 110 years old!!). The Blood Test gives results that are more reliable and have a greater overall accuracy. On that note I wish that it had been around when I went through that whole scare.

    #TBBloodTest - Most Accurate Way to Test for TB infection #IC #AD

    Another great draw is that this test entails only one trip to the doctor. As you read I had to take a multiple trips to and from, and sometimes walking away feeling frustrated that hardly anything had been done. Now I’m a mom and hardly have any time for myself as I’m constantly running after the kids. Every minute or two that I can save is well appreciated and this will save me more than a bundle of time. With back to school going on it’s tough on me as I don’t get to see them quite as much and they are around the other kids with the sick season about to start up. Coughs and colds will surely come so it’s reassuring that I can to testing on big things like TB and have faith in the results.

    There are a few other advantages to this test that you should also know about:

    For one it takes out the subjectivity of visual interpretation. it’s the only method of TB testing that is solely objective.
    It also only entails a 3ml draw of fresh blood. This is across all ages/immune statuses of patients.
    There is no cross reaction with a previous TB vaccination.
    This is the most accurate way to test for TB infection and it is such a time saver. I love it when science is put to great use!

    Orgain Protein Powder - Organic Vegan Protein Powder‎

    “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Orgain. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

    My husband is a bit of a workaholic. He tries to beat the traffic going into work, but often comes home later than most, too. If he eats breakfast it usually isn’t a stellar one, and he tries to make up for it throughout the rest of the day by getting enough nutritious food and eating things that will fill him up. By about 10 AM he is hungry for a snack. For lunch he often goes to the cafeteria for a quick meal, but if he is usually starving again by about 2 PM. The main thing he craves is protein, and rightfully so as his body needs it! There’s a reason why there is so much positive press right now, because there is more science than ever proving how crucial it is for our health. So at 10 AM and 2 PM what does my husband eat? Sometimes he grabs a protein bar. There are some out there that do the trick, but many feel too heavy or give him heartburn. Also, he wants to eat organic whenever possible (thanks to my constant pushing over the last few years!). The bars that are organic can be pricey or chalky, and some of them actually don’t have all that much protein. Sometimes I help him out with some hardboiled eggs, but I am so busy with the kids in the morning and he’s usually out the door before I even wake up.High in Fiber No Bake Organic Protein Bars

    High in Fiber No Bake Organic Protein Bars recipe :
    1 cup of organic steel oat
    3 scoop of Orgain Protein Powder
    1/2 cup of Organic Roasted almond, chopped
    1/3 cup of Organic Almond Milk
    1/2 Cup of Organic Hemp Seeds
    Organic Shredded Coconut Flakes

    Mix oat, protein powder, roasted almond, almond milk, hemp seeds in a bowl. Stir well to combine. Spread evenly in the prepared baking dish and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle with coconut flakes. Enjoy!

    Well luckily about a year back we discovered Orgain Protein Powder. Orgain was started up by Dr. Andrew Abraham in his search for optimal nutrition when dealing with cancer treatment. The end result are delicious products with amazing ingredients that are of the highest quality. The first thing that we noticed about Orgain Protein Powder was that it’s organic. This alone set it apart from most of the protein powders that I’ve seen out there. The fact that it’s from plant-based protein makes things even better. Two of the main protein ingredients are hemp and chia, a couple of things that I had already been targeting to build into my diet. Two of the other main proteins are brown rice and pea proteins. What a great balance, from grains to veggies. My husband likes to make a shake at work that has Orgain Protein Powder, Greek yogurt, and either soy milk or almond milk or water. The Orgain Protein Powder goes down so smoothly with its creamy texture. Some days he adds peanut butter and or banana, and sometimes berries to change up the flavor, but he likes the taste without those extras, too. The shake fills him up and gets him through those tougher in-between periods of 10 AM if he didn’t catch a good breakfast or 2 PM on days that he did. There’s a vending machine at work and he likes how he can get a fix of something that fulfills his dessert cravings in these shakes, and then doesn’t succumb to buying a candy bar.

    I’m proud of the changes my husband has made in his diet over the last few years and really thankful that products like this one are making healthy ingredients so easy and accessible. I have started bringing it into a lot of different recipes, obviously for a boost in nutrition but also for taste. It’s a great product to keep in the kitchen and at the office.

    Back to School with Carter's #CountMeInCarters #IC #ad

    “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.”

    Back to School with Carter's #CountMeInCarters #IC #ad
    Back to School with Carter’s
    It’s back to school time for the kids which brings a lot of bittersweet emotions.  They are bummed out that summer is wrapping up, but really excited to see their friends again and get back to learning fun things.  It’s fun to get the kids involved in picking out the outfits that they’ll be wearing over the coming year, so I brought them along to Carter’s to check out the fresh and colorful new styles.  I have found a few different reasons to get them involved in the process.  First off, I have been dead wrong on what my kids would like in the past!  Second of all, it’s a fun activity to do together.  I love to shop and having them with me, especially for their clothes is a fun experience.  Thirdly and most importantly, it’s great for their self-confidence and their identity.  My son thinks a sandwich tastes twice as good if he helped me make it, his favorite picture in his room is the one that he helped paint.  Clothes are the same, if he helped pick it out it’s bound to be his favorite.  Also, his personality is shining so much nowadays, he has his favorite colors, patterns, and above all favorite things such as cars and animals.  Although a couple of years younger my daughter does as well, though she’s a bit easier as she goes nuts over most things cute that are pink or purple.  My son picked out two different shirts with vehicles on them (those are his favorites, he could hardly get home to put one of them on), a polar bear shirt, some great football shirts (one that has beautifully sewn on stripes and “Property of Mom” written beneath the football.  Adorable.

    Back to School with Carter's #CountMeInCarters #IC #adThere are some great sales going on right now (below you’ll see details on the Count Me In Preschool sale and the Labor Day Weekend Sale and we took advantage of some of the doorbuster items.  The prices were so good that we stocked up on some things for when he grows into some bigger sizes down the road… it will be here before we know it and Carter’s carries sizes  all the way up to size 8 now (and size 3y for shoes)!  There’s such a great variety from shorts, fleece pants, leggings, long sleeve tees, terry pants and more.  We picked up the cutest outfits for my daughter too; her favorite is a long sleeve pink shirt with small gold star pattern.   She has already worn it and looks amazing and ready to take on the world (starting with the backyard and preschool!).  We also grabbed swimwear for both kids, something that we had a hard time finding elsewhere, the styles on those were so modern, too.

    Back to School with Carter's

    Even though their clothes is priced well the stitching on Carter’s clothes is top-notch and they last a very long time.  I also like how easy it is to get full outfits at Carter’s either from the easy outfit sets and color coordinated collections.  Most importantly I love how Carter’s always does an amazing job of keeping on-point with what both of my kids are happy wearing and what brings out their best.

    Visit and see the selections for fall, and check out the below specs on their sales:

    Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk #GevaliaIcedCoffee

    I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

    With summer winding down and the kids being out of school over the last few weeks we made a point to spend a few days as a family enjoying the outdoors.  This entailed a day out at the pool with a few other families, barbecuing up some delicious carne asada and soaking up the rays (though I was under a big umbrella for much of the day, haha).  There was a nice spread of food and drink and we must have been there for at least 7 or 8 hours.  In the hot summer sun there is nothing better than a drink on ice, and my favorite drink right now is Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk.  

    Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk

    It’s not a requirement to have it over ice, just something that I have found to make it extremely delightful this time of year.  When we first got to the pool I needed a little bit of a pick-me-up and popped open one of the 11.1 fl oz tetra packs (which are recyclable).  They come in Mocha, Vanilla and Caramel; I tend to crave the delicious mocha taste in the mornings.  I am not only a big fan of the flavor, but also the fact that it has 9 grams of protein in single serve container.  My friend Gina was curious to try one and she’s more a fan of vanilla and loved the taste.  From personal experience and as someone who does not like things that are too sweet, I will say that Vanilla has the perfect amount of sweetness as do the other two flavors.  That combined with the great flavor of blend of 100% Arabica Gevalia Coffee and that amazing taste from the almond milk, it puts a smile on my face every time I drink it.  It’s one of those things that makes me stop and slow down for a few seconds and just enjoy the summer and the moment in general.

    Later that day while still relaxing with his friends, my husband ran over from his game of throwing horseshoes and asked for something besides water.  I pointed him to the Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk, to which he said “yes indeed”, then grabbed a tetra-pack and ran back to his game. On that note I love the convenience of these drinks, you can take them anywhere.  These were simple to throw in the cooler but I’ve grabbed them running out the door to work, tossed them in my bag for lunch and try to always keep one or two chilled in the fridge so I can have it ready at any time.  Here’s some more info on Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk, which are now sold in grocery stores across the U.S.

      3 Off-The-Beaten Trails To Hike This Fall

      3 Off-The-Beaten Trails To Hike This Fall

      Fall is not usually a season you would think of for hiking, but actually, the respite from the summer heat is a great reason to go exploring. Fall also has the advantage of fewer visitors, fewer bugs, and milder weather, not to mention the variety of pretty autumn leaves. We found three amazing trails across the US that promise gorgeous scenery.
      As with any hike, travelers should make sure to be prepared. For fall hiking, you will have to make some adjustments. Before we make the recommendations for trails to hike, here are a few pro-tips for preparing for fall hiking:
      1. This is probably the most important: wear sturdy, comfortable hiking boots. Go to stores like Sorel or R.E.I., and pick up a pair of good boots with deep treads for traction. You will be, hopefully, doing lots of hiking, so make sure they fit well.

      2. Dress in layers. The autumn weather will be much cooler than the searing heat of summer, but hiking is still a workout. If you work up a sweat, you’ll have the flexibility of taking your jacket or sweater off, and putting it back on once the weather changes.
      3. This is an all-season recommendation: bring plenty of water and food. Whether you’re hiking a short distance or camping out for a couple of days, it’s easy to get dehydrated, and underestimate the amount of calories you’re burning as you’re hiking.
      4. Carry your fully-charged cell phone and make sure that someone else knows where you are, especially if you are hiking alone, even if you consider yourself an experienced hiker.


      It’s hard to beat the national parks for great scenery. Many of them are easy and cheap or free to access, and the National Park Service website is chock full of information for each park. If you are on the East Coast, and want a less crowded place to experience its famed fall foliage, check out the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Historic Park. It’s got sugar maple trees and 400 year old hemlocks, not to mention a dairy farm on which you can learn all about rural Vermont agriculture and heritage.


      Hike from inn to inn along the California coast. California’s sunny year-round weather is legendary, and hiking along the coast will give you a reprieve from the heat as well as breathtaking views of the ocean. For a great guide, check out the Walkabout California books, which lay out the routes for each hike mile-to-mile. There are several exciting treks you can take, but we recommend the latest addition – hiking from Malibu to Mexico.

      Of course, great hiking trails aren’t just reserved for the coasts. The midwest also promises stunning scenery, beautiful fall scenery and interesting foliage and history. If you are into rock climbing, check out the Barn Bluff in Red Wing, Minnesota. Red Wing itself boasts lots of great entertainment, but the main path is easily accessible and you can follow it to a scenic overlook and gaze upon the traffic below.
