Collagen Peptides from Naked Nutrition

Collagen Peptides

I am a proud 42 year old mother of 3. That “40 something” number does not bother me in the least. The feeling that comes with that number however, that’s where me and the number have an issue! Aging is inevitable, and along with aging our body changes. One of the things I’ve noticed the most since going over the Proverbial hill, is my skin. As we age our body produces less collagen – a word I didn’t even know until the last few years – but what a difference a little collagen can make!

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins found in the human body. It is responsible for providing strength, structure, and elasticity to skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.  Collagen is vital for skin hydration and elasticity. Loss of collagen often contributes to dry and wrinkled skin as we age. Supplementing with collagen peptides can help your skin stay smooth, hydrated, and firm. 

Naked Collagen has only one ingredient: Bovine hide collagen peptides sourced from pasture-raised cows in Europe. It is odorless, tasteless, and easy to mix in with your favorite drinks. Each serving includes 9 grams of protein and only 35 calories.  Naked collagen is free of additives and artificial sweeteners. Naked Nutrition is committed to shortening the steps between their farms and you. 

I love these pre-measured packets of collagen! I can keep one in my purse for those mornings I don’t have time to make my coffee before running out the door. I can slip it in my drink later in the day and still get my collagen in for the day! 


Plant Based Hair Care from VEGAMOUR

Plant Based Hair Care

As a woman, I find a certain amount of security in my hair. I didn’t realize how much until after I had my third child and my horomones went CRAZY – my hair was falling out by the HANDFULS. I was terrified, to say the least, that ALL of my hair was going to wash down the drain. It was a humbling and eye-opening experience. Thankfully, through diet and some life changes, I was able to reverse the damage and get back on track. 

Truly far from ordinary, GRO Revitalizing Shampoo and Conditioner from VEGAMOUR utilize microencapsulated vegan b-SILK™ protein which physically bonds to hair follicles and remains attached to strands even after rinsing, making these nourishing formulas the world’s first chemical-free keratin hair treatment products. Wild harvested marula oil, organic murumuru butter and ximenia oil help to condition, hydrate and fight damaging free radicals without imparting pore-blocking residue.

VEGAMOUR takes a holistic approach to hair wellness that incorporates powerful phyto-actives that work in tandem to address both the symptoms and underlying causes of visible hair thinning & fallout. Our inside out approach takes into consideration the health of the entire follicular ecosystem and works to promote a healthy environment for hair to thrive, naturally.

If your mom has thinning hair, give her the gift of confidence this year, give her VEGAMOUR!

Luxurious Silk Pillowcase from Celestial Silk


A goodnights sleep is the cornerstone to our health. It is impossible to function happily and healthy without getting the proper amount of sleep. If you are a mom, you know getting our sleep hours in can prove difficult for weeks on end.  

You spend almost 1/3 of your life in bed. Why not make the most of it and make those sleeping hours work for you?  Mulberry silk pillowcases from Celestial Silk help retain the moisture in your skin and hair, resulting in a smoother complexion and softer (less frizzy) hair. Beautify while you sleep.

Both are made with side enclosures and are designed to keep the silk pillowcase snugly on the pillow. The zipper is almost undetectable and secures the silk pillowcase on the pillow. The envelope style (also called the “housewife” style) is your traditional style of pillowcase with a hidden flap inside to secure the silk pillowcase while you sleep.
