PostHeaderIcon Always Discreet Knows All About Mom Issues #AlwaysDiscreetAtTarget

After the birth of my youngest, Spencer, in 2007, I was unsure if I wanted more children. I was only 29 and I didn’t want to close that window just yet. I opted for an IUD and was thrilled to find out that one of the POSSIBLE things that could happen was….. no more cycles! I was absolutely ecstatic to learn that I was one of the lucky ones. I did not have a cycle for almost 8 years. Can you even imagine how wonderful that is in your early late 20’s, early 30’s? There was a down fall to to having kids as well. Can you sneeze without peeing a little? Oh come on, we are all adults here right? We know it happens to so many women. I am not ashamed to admit this. It is one of my “battle wounds” for my wonderful children. Yes, it can be annoying at times but, I will gladly live with it to have them in my life. It is a small price to pay!

My IUD was only good for 7 years. At 36 years old, and my sons being 7 and 12, I accepted that I wasn’t meant to have a little girl. All Mom’s want a little girl but, I decided to close the bakery for good. There would be no more buns baking in this oven. So, I went in June and I had a tubal. The removal of the IUD, of course, would put me back in the cycle stage. This was not something I looked forward to. In August and September, no cycle! I thought that I was one of those extremely rare cases when it wouldn’t come back. It turns out, October rolled around and I wasn’t so lucky. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays with @ACUVUE®

I have been blessed with extremely bright blue eyes. When I was little, I would always get embarrassed when people complimented them. My Nana would always laugh and tell me to stop covering them up. I didn’t learn to love them until I was in my late teens.

When I was 16, I started to wear contact lenses. This was mostly due to the fact that the sun literally hurt my eyes. I didn’t want to be switching between prescription sunglasses and my regular glasses. To be honest, I also just hate how I look in glasses. Even at almost 36 years old, I still am not a big fan of them.

It has been my experience that most people simply wear sunglasses because the sun bothers them. I don’t think many consider the damage that the sun can do to your eyes and not just your skin. Experts say it is difficult to isolate the exact amount of damage that Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) imposes on the eye over a long period of time. However, a number of studies have shown that the effects of UV radiation are mostly cumulative and may increase the chance of developing eye problems later in life, including cataracts, a leading cause of reduced vision in the United States. read the rest of this entry »
