5 Ways to Reach Your February Fitness Goals

It’s almost a week into the month and I’m starting to feel it: the February slump. Why is it that the shortest month of the year feels the longest? For many, winter is still at full blast; even Austin is at its chilliest. Where does that leave my fitness plan? These days, sometimes it’s easier to be cozy in bed in the morning than to put on work out clothes and get ready to sweat. It’s tempting to hold off…

I am one of those women who rarely leaves the house without something on her lips. I’m totally addicted to chapstick and gloss, and I’m not ashamed of it. But my favorite thing to put on? Lipstick. A good red lipstick. There is something about red lipstick. It’s so classy, yet also sexy and alluring. I just feel better when I have on a good shade and anything I wear instantly becomes 100% more stylish. It’s just a truth: lipstick…

DIY Essential Oil Bath Salts

One luxury I can’t live without? A nice, warm bath. When I’m soaking in the tub, I find myself in my own little relaxing world. How nice it is to wash away the stresses of the day, leaving both my body and soul in clean condition. When I bathe, I love to use bath salts to sink me even further into relaxation.

A Robertson Family Christmas

When it comes to the holidays, we Robertsons are pretty traditional. While we may not have an elf on the shelf or go looking for pickle ornaments, we do have a lot of fun. Usually, our festivities begin in November. Christmas music starts playing on the radio early in the month, and I’m right and ready, cranking up the volume in my car to Bing Crosby and the other crooners. Music is important in our home, so we have piles…

How can smell really help put those butterflies at ease? (People use xanax for that, and last I heard, xanax did not work because of scent.) Despite my skepticism, I tried it.…

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Enchiladas

Thanksgiving is over, the excitement is dwindling down, and our tummies are slowly returning to normal size. The holiday may be done, but when I open the fridge, there it is staring at me: the turkey. Don’t get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving food. I love a good repeat meal of stuffing and mashed potatoes, but there is only so much I can take. Leftovers in our family is a growing art. I’ve seen mighty creative sandwiches and some darn…
