Review Wednesday: Jamberry nail wraps

I have talked about my thin, peeling nails before. For more than a year I have been trying to get them back to healthy with no more peeling. I started using Nail-Aid after gel rescue, which seemed to help a little. I also started taking calcium every day. My friend Heather is a Jamberry consultant. I […]


Review Wednesday: Brawny Produce Protector Reusable Bags

At some point at the grocery store I had noticed green bags for sale, which claimed they could keep produce fresher longer. My grandpa and I even discussed these. He mentioned he had tried them and they worked. But he didn’t know why. So I decided to experiment with them myself using Brawny’s Produce Protector […]


Review Wednesday: Wine2Go

A few months ago I was wine tasting at a Fred Meyer, a one-stop shopping retail supermarket company. (Fred Meyer stores are located in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska.) After perusing the wine area I noticed an item called Wine2Go. Wine2Go is a foldable, reusable wine bottle. I filled it up with some white wine and used it recently […]


Review Wednesday: SodaStream

For the past eight or nine years I have made sure to get in a regular and healthy amount of water in daily. Last year after returning from my birthday trip to Bora Bora I decided reducing my alcohol intake might be a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t eliminate wine and beer and […]


Review Wednesday: Dry shampoo part drie

I have done two reviews in the past on dry shampoos, which you can read here and here. Today I am posting No. 3 (drie in Dutch) review. If you have been a reader of GFG! even for a short period of time you probably know that I have a smell sensitivity. I get what […]


Review Wednesday: Spotify

A little more than a month ago I took the SPINNING® teacher training. Soon after that I took the test (and passed), which made me a certified SPINNING® teacher. One of my indoor cycling teachers has been my mentor and personal cheerleader through me becoming a yoga teacher and now an indoor cycling teacher. One of […]


Review Wednesday: Aveda’s Scalp Remedy

I have dry scalp, which shouldn’t be confused with dandruff. I won’t go into all of the details. If you want to know more feel free to look it up. What I will quote from a blog post titled There is a difference between dandruff & dry scalp is that dry scalp is due to loss […]


Review Wednesday holiday roundup

For at least the past five years (maybe a little longer) Curt and I along with our families have stopped giving each other Christmas presents. We have decided we all have what we need. This helps to ease the stress of getting each other gifts. So instead of giving to others we give to charity. […]


Review Wednesday: Bear Naked nail wipes

I am trying to get my fingernails back in shape and healthy again. They are thin and peeling. At a recent visit to the nail salon the woman giving me my mani/pedi gave me some suggestions on how to get my nails growing and strong, which, of course, spurred a blog post titled: My nail […]


Review Wednesday: Make-A-Bolster

When I travel I usually pack exercise clothes and tennis shoes to make sure I keep up with my regular exercise routine. Sometimes hitting the gym at the hotel is successful and other times not at all. Once I started my teacher training last year I developed a home yoga practice. The more I did […]
