Healthy & Happy for the Holidays

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are honest and my own, as always.

The holidays are fast approaching, and many of us are scrambling to pull it all together. Once Thanksgiving arrives, time starts to move at breakneck speed toward Christmas and Hannukah, barely giving us a chance to catch our breath or check our habits. Here are a few items that can help you have a healthy & happy 2022 holiday season!

Gaiam Speed Rope

Many of us travel during November and December, and your exercise routine can get way out of whack, especially since you can’t bring most exercise equipment with you. Packing 15 lb. dumbells in your suitcase? No, thank you!

Gaiam is bringing it back to basics when it comes to workouts with the Gaiam Speed Rope. Retailing at under $10, this is an ultra-portable way to get your cardio and endurance workouts in on the road! It is 9 feet in length, and you can easily customize this by cutting the rope down. Improve balance and agility in addition to burning calories. You can grab this rope on or

Quest Mini Peanut Butter Cups

I have a sweet tooth that gets me in trouble, never more so than during the indulgent holiday season! Quest recently came out with these mini peanut butter cups, that make a guilty pleasure like this a lot less guilty. With 8 grams of protein, less than one gram of sugar, and 1 gram net carbs per serving, these make an ideal treat when you need something to satisfy those sugar cravings.

Swap out your traditional sugary treats in a candy bowl for these, and you won’t have to worry about grabbing one when you walk by. You can find them at Walmart, Target, Amazon and for around $10.99.

DAX For Naturals

I am always on a budget during the holidays with the high amount of gifts to purchase, but I don’t want to cut corners when it comes to looking good. So many hair products, especially pomades, are incredibly expensive for just a few ounces. DAX For Naturals has been around for over 65 years, and they provide quality products at a fair price. Their For Naturals line is under $19, and jars are 7.5 oz!

The line is created for those who embrace their natural hair, and it is made for ALL hair types. It contains natural ingredients and essential oils such as shea butter, monoi oil, passionfruit, and broccoli seed oil. And did you know that broccoli seed oil is a natural alternative to silicone?

Grab these on,, at Beauty Supply chains, and other retailers.

Cheers to heading into the holiday season happy, healthy, and ready to tackle anything that comes at you!
