Product Review: Bundle Up In Style With CoverYourHair.Com

So much for the warm and beautiful days here in Glendo, Wyoming, because Mr. Jack Frost is back yet again. It was nasty, windy and cold last night and even early this morning. I felt sorry for my boys walking to school with strong wind and snow blowing, but thank God they don't have to go far. It was brrrrrrryyyy cold this morning, and it was a perfect time to wear my really thick and warm beanie and infinity scarf that I got from CoverYourHair.com.

You may or may have not heard from them, but if you are looking for some affordable and fashionable head coverings and accessories, CoverYourHair.com is the store for you.

This is actually not my first time reviewing products from this website. It is my second time now and I am glad they asked me again to review a couple more items from their store. I decided to pick the beanie and the scarf this time because I know it is something that I need for the season.

My Review: 

- The beanie is my favorite out of the two products that I got from CoverYourHair.com. It is thick, warm, and stylish, and it is affordable. It is really warm because it has a lining inside and it is perfect for this cold weather. 

- As for the Infinity Scarf, it is not the best quality out there, but if you are someone looking for stylish yet affordable scarf, this one is for you. It is warm, however, and light weight. Easy to use. It is also not itchy. 

The thing I don't like about the scarf is that it has a little bit of smell, so you might want to wash it before using. I would wash it by hand, though.

Health/Fitness: Shower And Peppermint- A Couple Of My Own Workout Tips

I am back at the gym after a couple of weeks off due to some issues. And on the first day of going back to gym, I wasn't too excited about it. I was dragging myself up and debating whether or not I should go. But I did and I am happy I went. 

At first I was planning to go to the gym in the morning because that is when my excitement still kicks in and I feel fresh, energized and motivated to go. But nope, I didn't go in the morning, instead I went back to bed with my little girl and cuddled with her. I got up late and now I had only one chance to go in the afternoon before I pick up my kid at school. Because if I don't go in the afternoon, I doubt if I even want to go in the evening, at all. I kept thinking, if I don't go now, when? If I don't get that momentum going, it might be another month or two before I go back to the gym, and I don't want that to happen. 

And you know what I did to make myself get up and workout at the gym? I showered! Yes, I did. Normally you would shower after working out when you have finally rested, but I needed that boost of energy. And I know that if I take a really nice warm shower (because it is cold outside) that it is going to make me feel awake, refreshed and alive. 

Another thing that I also do before I workout is to use Peppermint oil. Now I am not saying I am an expert on this matter, but it is something I learned years ago. It is said that the scent of the Peppermint Oil helps boosts your energy and reduces/decreases exhaustion. Whether you believe it or not, or whether it is true or not, I believe in it and it works for me. Plus, peppermint smells so good! Who doesn't love Peppermint? Maybe only the mice don't. (LOL)

The next time you feel like you don't want to go to the gym, take a shower and sniff a little bit of that peppermint oil for a boost of energy. Have a great one!
