I have never been one to believe in dieting.

And I would never endorse a fad diet, but I do believe in wholesome, and healthy eating habits.

In Oprah’s new cookbook, In Oprah’s new cookbook, Food, Health, and Happiness by Oprah Winfrey you get just that! Recipes that center around eating well.

This my friends will help you Prepare, Pamper, and Prioritize for healthy, wholesome, and delicious meal planning into 2017 and beyond…

My personal feeling on this cookbook is that it is absolutely stunning.

The pictures are plenty, full color, and gorgeous.

I love reading Oprah’s stories, she is such a down to earth person even with her fame and fortune.

She is open about her own struggles with food, dieting, and eating healthy.

The cookbook is so lovely I want to put a protective cover on every page to keep it looking new because I am such a messy cook.

Personally, I was not expecting much of this snack.

Healthy snacks are usually just lacking that special something that cuts through my snack cravings.

Let me tell you, these are really very good!

When my husband first saw them he turned his nose up to them right off the bat.

Yet, after trying one, he was impressed as well.

Need something refreshing and pure to rise those Figgy Pops down?

JUST® water is what I recommend!

JUST Water is 100% spring water with no additives.

This product will not only pamper you with clean, hydrating water but will pamper and prioritize mindfulness in 2017.

JUST® stands more for the fact that what you get is “just” water.

JUST® also represents the companies drive to renewable awareness through using 83% renewable resources in it’s packaging.

The bottle reminds me of the milk cartons we would get in school as kids.

It is the only bottled water I know of that comes packaged like this, and the only spring water that is sourced from the Glens Falls Watershed in Upstate New York where water is abundant.

This is in an ethical trade revenue partnership with the city of Glens Falls which helps revitalize the local community.

It tastes pure, clean, and refreshing, as good water should.

JUST® water is available nationally at a retail price of $0.99 for a 16.9- ounce bottle.

My take on JUST® water,

I am a huge advocate on recycling and am particular about my water quality.

The best way to prioritize in 2017 is to put people first! 

EQUAL wants us to do just that by putting an end to discrimination, standing up for equal rights, and asserting that we all have a right to equality.
By wearing their stylish products we can help spread the word that 2017 is going to be the best year ever when it comes to human rights.
Prepare, Pamper, and Prioritize
You can bet that you will see me wearing these two items in a fashion article coming soon! 
Update: A new article has been posted on Equal


EQUAL asks only that you make your resolution to #disruptdiscrimination in 2017.
They would like people who believe in equality to purchase their merchandise, then “Wear it. Share it. Change the world.” By taking pics and sharing on social media using their hashtag above.
I know I will!
My opinion? I love the fit and style of this beanie and these bracelets are all the rage with the younger crowd but I will wear mine too, and proudly I will wear it! I love that EQUAL is getting behind making 2017 and beyond better for all and creating awareness. Money well spent if you ask me so I will be checking out their shop as soon as it opens. In the meantime, I have signed up for their email list.
