Posts Tagged ‘Wedding Anniversary’

Here are a few things I am so excited to share…First off I went to Bora Bora. Crazy Right! Check out these pictures. This trip was a celebration of our 20th. Wedding Anniversary.

We flew from Detroit to LA and then boarded Air TahitiNui. It was such a long flight but totally worth it. Once you arrived.

Dreamed of this day for a long time. We started planning this trip over two years ago.

I researched every blog, website and review and got some amazing tip on items and things to bring from home. One being tubes and floating rings. So that’s what I did. Brought my own so we could float the day away. I also brought rope to tie off to our deck…Kinda have a fear of being in the Open Ocean.

Four Seasons Bora Bora was the most amazing place to stay on earth. They are amazing hosts. From the first sight of the island to the last they were the most friendly people I have ever met. They really made every single day so special.

Collagen: The Body’s Anti-Aging Protein

Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body’s major systems.

Although abundant in our youth, the body’s natural collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the tell-tale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis. Super Collagen+C™ utilizes Collagen Types 1&3, which is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.*

I used NeoCell Biotin Burst every day for 30 days and I did notice some changes in my hair. It did not crack off at the bottom like it normally does and my scalp seemed to be healthier. I normally get really dry scalp around my crown area. I also want to comment on the flavor of the chews. They are just taste little nuggets of flavor. I really looked forward to them every day. Wonderfully made product and a great website with lots of health items.

I also loved having the Collagen  shakes. The flavor was so good. It mixed well and was easy to just add water and sip on after yoga or a long walk.

On August 18th., Jeff and I celebrated Our 19th. Wedding Anniversary. We had just gotten back from a long weekend of camping and fun with friends and decided to hit up our favorite restaurant for dinner. Talk about a perfect meal from start to finish. Also 19 years, WOW. We are still as crazy in love with one another as the day we met. When we started our life together our main goal was simple: Have fun and travel as much as possible. Well I think were doing a damn good job of keeping up with our goals.
