At the beginning of the school year, I wanted to adopt a new attitude for myself. I personally wanted to find a way that I can make a brighter difference in our families life, my personal life and for others. We all know that it's the little changes that can make the bigger difference. I have been volunteering in my son's 2nd grade classroom everyday. I work one on one with each child in the class for a few minutes every Thursday. Its funny because when I began volunteering I thought maybe I would make a brighter difference on a child's life even for a few minutes every week. What I didn't realize was that going into that classroom each Thursday makes a brighter difference on my life! I love working with each of the kids individually. It is a pleasure to see their smiling faces and hear their sweet voices while I work with them.


Another difference I have been making in our families life over the last 4 months is changing our eating habits. I have been focusing on eating cleaner with a low sodium diet for our family. I am hoping that this will help make a brighter difference for our families future. Each week I work hard to find healthy recipes that everyone can enjoy. Some of the recipes have been hits and other misses but it truly has made a big difference on each one of us.

I sadly admit that since having kids over ten years ago my beauty routine has suffered. Slowly over the years I have tried to change that but it is still a work in progress. I am trying to find ways to give back to myself. Neutrogena® Natural Brightening Moisturizer has brightening benefits that I was looking for. I love the lightweight formula with 94% naturally derived ingredients provides moisturization while skin brightening lemon peel. The best part is that the bionutrient works with your skin to even skin tone in just 4 weeks! That is what this busy mom is looking for when brightening her beauty routine.
