Every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, healthy, and optimal for learning. Unfortunately, many schools across the country are subjecting children to unhealthy classrooms with poor lighting, inefficient energy usage, or harmful toxins. When a school goes green, children AND the environment benefit!
Sustainability is important to Pureology. To improve student performance and reduce the carbon footprint of schools, Pureology is offering a Green School Makeover to one Grand Prize Winner. You could win this for your local school when you enter the contest.

I put in a submission for our local elementary school, because I want optimal health for our kids and our land. The funds could be used for water conservation, waste reduction, energy efficient upgrades, and more.
Do you have ideas for how your local school can go green?
Where do you go for inspiration on diet and exercise topics? I have a health & fitness Pinterest board to collect images and ideas.
My link is: http://pinterest.com/robinosully/health-fitness-inspiration/ Blogs are also a great source of tips and encouragement.
I recently discovered http://knowmybody.com/
which is full of articles about fitness, nutrition, healthy lifestyle practices, wellness, and more.
The site has tutorials on body composition, muscle building, weight loss, and setting goals.
I recommend checking out the site!

I was given the opportunity to try L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream through the SheSpeaks blogger program.
This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 helpful actions: it hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects–all for $10.95!
I don’t like to use a lot of skin products, so the fact that this one could take care of so much all in one little tube was quite appealing.
After one week of daily use, I can say that is really does instantly transform to your appropriate shade for a flawless, bare skin finish.
Over time, I may even see more beautiful skin (here’s hoping!).
The all-in-one skin BB cream has “Beautifying Beads,” which are encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E.

Are you a coffee person or tea person? Some people have a strong preference, but I have always been a drinker of both, depending on time of day or depending on my mood. Teeccino Herbal Coffee is a unique beverage that combines some of the healthy aspects of both coffee and tea.
Teeccino is naturally caffeine-free and non-acidic, but it still provides a natural energy boost. It comes in ground form, like coffee, or in tea-bag form. You can choose from light, medium or dark roast. There are even tasty flavors like Chocolate Raspberry or Caramel Nut!

Fatigue? Headaches? Body aches? Chills and fever? Not fun. There is a homeopathic medicine that can help: Oscillococcinum. When taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms, it has been shown in clinical studies to reduce the duration and severity of these symptoms.
It is safe for everybody two years of age and older.
I like that the sweet, melting pellets do not require chewing or swallowing…and there are no side effects (no drowsiness)!
The new, easy-to-use Beautiful Skin line from Boots USA is a two-step range of everyday skincare cleansers and moisturizers, tailored to your specific skin type. Step 1 is to cleanse, and I tried the Cleansing Lotion.
Beautiful Skin cleansers quickly and gently remove all traces of dirt and impurities, leaving you with clean, healthy skin. I found that there is no need for a separate toner. Step 2 is to moisturize, and I tried the Night Cream.
All the Boots day creams deliver SPF 15 and Broad Spectrum UV Protection, while the night creams work to promote optimum hydration while you sleep.
I definitely saw that my skin was hydrated and refreshed after using the night cream.
Beautiful Skin products are color-coded for your skin type: Normal/Oily (Pink), Normal/Dry (Green), and Dry/Very Dry (Lilac).

I received a complimentary Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program.
The candle I tested was “Cider Lane,” and I was immediately impressed at how strong the fragrance was. I am often frustrated by the vague scent of candles, so I was delighted that this one had some “oomph”!
By the same token, I often get bored after using a large candle for more than a week, so I am excited about the Bath & Body Works line of mini candles, which come in adorable glass containers and facilitate frequent refreshment of your living room!
The mini candles burn for about 15 hours. Bath & Body Works does, of course, have jumbo sizes (and large and medium) as well, so you can pick a more lasting version of your favorite!
Some of the scents that appeal to me in the winter collection are: Fresh Balsam, Winter Candy Apple, Peppermint Mocha, Frosted Gingerbread, and Brandied Pear.
