Fly On The Wall In Limbo

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, three bloggers are bravely inviting you into their homes for a peek at what goes on behind closed doors.


     So far, January has been quite entertaining. We celebrated the New Year, then a grandchild's birthday, and have also had some pretty fun times around the fire pit since the weather here in Florida has turned cold (yes, a whopping 60 degrees----BRRR!). But this is the kind of weather I thrive in---cooler days---because this girl does not like to sweat. And of course, that pesky fly on the wall has been buzzing around my family the whole time, eavesdropping on our conversations. Here are some snippets of what he overhead:  


"That dog food stinks. Is it a new brand?"
"Yep. How did you know?"
"I have a really strong sense of smell, especially for gross stuff."
"Then why did you marry me?"



"What did the doctor say about your swollen knee cap?
"He said  I have water on the knee. I guess I don't have to worry about drowning because this thing is big enough to act as a floatation device. "



"How dumb is this---our car insurance rates went up because they say the area we live in has become more populated."
"So, if we move to a deserted island, will they give us the Gilligan discount rate?"


"It's amazing that those doctors were able to do a human heart transplant by using a pig heart. Hopefully, the patient's body will accept it." 
"Does that mean that from now on, the patient will have an aversion to eating bacon or ham? 



"Whoever invented the game of Twister must have been a master at yoga."
"Or he really liked pretzels." 



"Hey, did you see that you received an invite in the mail to your 45th class reunion? You need to RSVP."
"I doubt the committee will get that many RSVPs. More likely they'll get news of a lot of classmate RIPs."

"Don't you hate waiting for news from the doctor? It leaves your plans in limbo."

"I have a bad back--my limbo days are over." 


"Our dinner guests are arriving soon---do you have everything ready?" 
"Yep! The roast is in the oven, champagne is chilling on ice, the playlist is ready, and I sprayed down the entire house with Microban."
"Nothing says party 2022 like booze and a can of Microban." 



"I can't wait to get to the restaurant! The last time we were there, I loved their handcrafted cocktails."
"Not me--I'm not drinking that stuff again."
"Why? I thought you liked the tropical flavors."
"No, because that Tropical Reef Drink I ordered gave me tropical grief the next morning."



"What did the doctor say about your back? When will you stop being in pain?"
"When I'm dead."

Here's to wishing everyone a Happy 2022! It can only get better, right? RIGHT?? Cheers!

If Menopause Has Knocked You Flat, You Can Get Back Up Again!


Menopause got you down? There's help if you need it! Today on the blog I have the good folks from Nutrafirm, a company that has developed a supplement called LibiGem that will help balance your hormones. Wouldn't it be nice to reduce night sweats, hot flashes, fatigue, and anxious feelings? If you're experiencing these common symptoms of menopause, check out this amazing supplement from Nutrafirm!



IF MENOPAUSE HAS KNOCKED YOU FLAT, YOU CAN GET BACK UP AGAIN!


As women approach that “certain age”, many find the challenges of the menopause transition can often feel debilitating.  One of the things that can really help with these unique challenges during this time, is a natural supplement by the name of LibiGem® by NutraFirm® Inc. It works to balance and regulate hormones by promoting healthy estrogen levels.  When hormone levels are balanced, women will experience less sleep disturbances, less hot flashes and night sweats, improved anxiety levels and mood, and increased energy levels.

Looking at the ingredients of LibiGem® (which is all-natural and vegan and gluten-free), you will find many that you’ve been hearing so much about already, and some that you may already be taking separately (you can effectively stop doing that and take it all in one supplement instead!). 

LibiGem® takes 16 important ingredients and puts them in ONE perfectly balanced supplement, so you won’t have to buy multiple products. It’s the only one that combines all these herbs and roots into one product along with essential vitamins. You just take two capsules a day! It’s been Health Canada approved, and you will find that along with many other amazing benefits such as improved sleep, mood, and energy levels, hot flashes and bloating will greatly diminish if not disappear completely. The best part is that you will start seeing an improvement within a week or two of using LibiGem (i.e. improved sleep). The full benefits of the product are evident within three months of taking it.

LibiGem® is quite an affordable supplement and is sold in several pricing tiers.

As an exclusive offer for readers of this Blog, use coupon Marcia20 on https://www.NutraFirm.ca to get 20% off all orders!

If you’re feeling subpar or struggling with symptoms – you can take action!



The goal of true hormonal rejuvenation and all the benefits that it entails has been the holy grail of hormone research for decades. Today that goal is finally attainable with proper diet, exercise, rest, and proper supplementation. Don’t wait any longer to discover what countless women have already discovered; that using LibiGem® in concert with healthy lifestyle changes can restore hormonal balance and with it, the joy of living.

For major health issues, always check with your doctor; but if you want to try a natural supplement that can truly make a difference, NutraFirm® is a great place to start.

Women no longer need to struggle through the menopause transition, they can now take control with LibiGem®.

The Skin We're In: Caire Beauty


I have often mentioned on my blog the woes of perimenopause and the effects it has on the skin---especially dryness and the appearance of wrinkles. Today I'm excited to introduce you to Celeste Lee, Co-Founder of Caire Beauty, Skincare for Grownup Women. She's here to share tips on the breakthrough science behind the company's awesome products that help hydrate and nourish your skin. If you want healthier skin for the new year, check out this amazing facial serum and mask! 

The Skin We’re In



Yep, it’s true. One of the VERY first signs of perimenopause – before you even know that it’s happening is drier, duller skin. Then you wake up to an undereye bag or little eye lines. Some women see horizontal creases in their neck and forehead and others are appalled by brown spots, redness, or out of the blue bigger pores. 65% will have acne. Meanwhile, you’re still faithfully cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and sunscreen (maybe not every day on the sunscreen but still!). What’s going on? 


Aging or as Caire Beauty likes to say, “growing up” is hard on our largest organ. In skin, it turns out there are 2 major causes of aging. The kind that 99% of skincare solves for is external – which is UV radiation and pollution (think free radical damage here!). This starts the day we’re born and is ongoing. 


But who knew that internally caused skin aging also existed! Sex hormones like estrogen & progesterone do much more than drive sex drive! They influence all manner of biological functions including skin cell production. “Keratinocytes, Langerhans’ cells, melanocytes, sebaceous glands, collagen content and the synthesis of hyaluronic acid are under hormonal influence,” says Dermatology Review. But like so much associated with peri/menopause, the beauty industry has traditionally ignored it. This is why your skincare isn’t as effective as it used to be. It only works to defend your skin from the outside, utterly ignoring how the wild west of hormones is slowing up things on the inside. 



Caire’s breakthrough science fights the estrogen-related Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid slowdown that DOUBLES in perimenopause (38 – 44 onset and lasts 4 to 10 years) and then contracts another 30% at menopause (age 51-ish). Their Pro-Growth complex includes a full spectrum of hyaluronic acid molecules including their signature ‘Tiniest HA in the World’ and a customized peptide that ‘talks’ to the skin, telling it to make more skin cells. It’s like a new ‘good’ boss for your skin. Because the stronger skin is inside, the smoother, suppler, brighter it will look outside. 


Caire’s Theorem Serum Boost ($56) and Triple Lift Molecule Mask ($52) are multi-tasking miracle workers. In addition to the hormone-defying science, all Caire is clean, vegan, fragrance & toxin-free. The Serum should be used twice daily, the tightening gel Mask up to 3x a week. Some women even like to sleep with the Mask on, so as to wake up to younger, softer skin. Aging is unique, meaning you might have large pores, brown spots & fine lines and your bestie might see sags, jawline softness, and dryness galore. 



Caire is a new science for today, and their recent Clinical Test results are super supportive. The Theorem Serum clinicals showed 100% of women experienced smoother, firmer, suppler, more radiant skin. 97% of women said their skin “looked & felt more like it did 5 years ago” and “that circles under the eyes were visibly diminished”.  The Triple Lift Mask clinicals showed 100% experienced “immediately softer, plumper, glowing skin” with “visibly reduced lines” on both the neck and face. 


Their customer reviews in all honesty are even more compelling because these are totally objective experiences from real women from ages 35 to 75 all over the United States of every skin tone, skin type, and living in all different climates. Caire formulas that are naturally anti-inflammatory are becoming a cult favorite for those with newly sensitive skin (caused by that damn estrogen change) as the clean and gentle formulas benefit and soothe redness, irritations, rosacea, and other sensitivities.  See for yourself at www.cairebeauty.com
