SAGE & HAZEL APOTHECARY

We recently had the chance to try out some products from Sage & Hazel Apothecary. The products have been proven to change daily skin care regimen making skin care a treat, not a chore. To be honest, caring for my skin has been one of my last priorities, but as my skin begins to show signs of sun, stress… and wine, it has moved up the list a bit! I always like to use all-natural products and I am happy to say these actually WORK! The deodorant lasts and smells so yummy… (seriously yummy) while the clay mask and toner are revitalizing and leave my skin feeling soft and refreshed. We are soon going to be checking out the Wrinkly Wink and documenting the change to our skin… so stay tuned. In the meantime, fill your shopping cart with the clay mask, toner and deodorant!044

MY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE WITH SIMPLY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

To be really honest with you, having newborn pictures taken sounded like torture for the entire family. The combination of a hot August day + an unpredictable newborn + sleep deprived parents + a mom who’s not feeling her best = ugh. But to EVERYONES surprise, our morning with Laurie from Simply Newborn Art was one of the most enjoyable experience we had in those first few weeks of our baby’s life.

VOO VODKA: ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

When we were introduced to VOO Vodka, we went on a mission to convince our friends that it is the way to go when drinking vodka… anytime, anywhere! It is so clean, that even the anti- vodka drinker couldn’t deny its smooth flavor. voo-bottle1

Why VOO?

VOO Vodka is distilled and distributed right here in Michigan. It is distilled eight times versus the industry standard five times, which explains why there was no “burn” when you drink it.

VOO Vodka makes the perfect mixer in a cocktail:

CHAPMAN HOUSE

Fine dining in Downtown Rochester has been taken to the next level by an architecturally fine spot on Walnut Boulevard. Although this 8,200 square foot house is nearly a century old, it has been converted into a Modern American restaurant inspired by French culinary tradition. We must give kudos to the extraordinary cuisine at Chapman House, however it is the vibe that completes the experience.
