The big day is here...COSTUMES & CANDY DAY! Halloween has always been a favorite holiday at my house. This year I'm sad, my girls are growing up and I have no one to take trick or treating...I'm not as excited about staying home to hand out candy, boring! But I might as well enjoy my last day of candy eating, because starting tomorrow it's time to be good until the next holiday...Thanksgiving! So, happy candy day, have fun treat or treating!!

If you love fall colors like I do...today may be your last day!!! Take a quick drive up the canyon and experience one of my favorite things of living in Utah...the gorgeous fall leaves!! My favorite drive is the Alpine Loop starting in Provo canyon and ending down American Fork canyon.

As a self-proclaimed sugar addict, I am glad I finally I don't have to feel guilty about my candy splurges!!! I have to admit, I'm much better than I used to be. I don't HAVE to buy a candy bar at every check-out line. I still want to, I just am better at exercising self-control! But, here is a easy way to eat your chocolate yet still keep your calories in check!
A new study was just published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Assoc, researchers found that people who were served 20 candy halves ate about the same number of pieces as those given 20 whole ones--but they consumed less calories. The take-away: When it comes to snacks, size does matter. So munch on M&M's minis or mini candy treats, trying to go easy on full-sized versions and you may feel satisfied w/less.
Let me know how that works for you! Happy Halloween/Candy Month!!

Well, it's mid-Oct and I guess we are officially into Fall, the summer glow is fading and I feel like I'm over due for check up at my favorite make-up counter! I've been a fan of Bare Essentials for years and I would pick it up at either Nordstrom or Sephora...but now we have our own Bare Escentuals Boutique at the University Mall. (Located by Eddie Bauer)
My daughter and I visited their new boutique for the 1st time last week and worked with a darling make-up artist, Tonya. Tonya color matched my daughter for the season and was so helpful with any concerns, issues and make-up questions. She was NOT pushy or over the top sales person, so nice! If you are still using drugstore liquid make-up, do us both a favor and STOP! I LOVE mineral makeup, it is SO much better for your skin, especially if you have problem skin. And it lasts much longer, so in the end it is more cost effective. So here's my advice, head to Bare Escentuals and "Get your Face Fall Ready"!!!
