Quick Tuesday Tip: Nivea Lip Butter

I've been dealing with some extremely chapped lips this winter. I've tried a few things to help the situation, but nothing worked.

Finally I tried Nivea Lip Butter.  I'm using the flavor Vanilla and Macadamia.  The Lip Butter is like butter. It's creamy and smells like vanilla. It contains shea butter and almond oil. It's not greasy and keeps my lips moisturized for hours. I'm so happy. 

Nivea Lip Butter retails for $2.99. The price is right too!

I highly recommend this product. Please go to to find out more about this and other products.

Celebrating My Favorite Year in Music 1985: February

Continuing my celebration of this great year in music, we move to February.  I will just highlight some of my favorite albums that were released that month. During this month we saw releases from Til Tuesday with "Voices Carry."Great debut album, my favorite track was not the title song, but "Looking Over My Shoulder."  Tears for Fears released their second album "Songs From The Big Chair."  To my every song on that album is great, but my favorite track is "Head Over Heels." The video is fun and shows a lighter side to the band.  Also Mick Jagger released his solo debut "She's the Boss". "Just Another Night" was a hit song from that album. 

There were a couple of movie soundtracks released that month from "The Breakfast Club" and "Vision Quest".  "The Breakfast Club Soundtrack" included the hit song from Simple Minds called "Don't You (Forget About Me)." "The Vision Quest Soundtrack" included a hit song from Madonna "Crazy For You."

The most notable album release is from the late Whitney Houston.  "Whitney Houston" was her debut album and it became the best selling debut album from a female artist of all time. This album had a ton of hits "How Will I Know," "Greatest Love of All," "You Give Good Love." I remember seeing the video for "You Give Good Love" for the first time and saying to my friends "That's the girl from Seventeen Magazine! Now she's singing!" You can watch my favorite song "Saving All My Love For You" below.

Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel 7.2-Cup Kettle Review

Never used electric kettles before we moved to England. We lived in England for two years. When we returned to Chicago that was one of the first things I bought for our new home.

I have been through a few electric kettles since then and just recently purchased a new one and it is my favorite.  It's the Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel 7.2-Cup Kettle. I like it because it's stainless steel and it boils water quickly.  When filled completely it takes about four minutes to boil.

Doesn't take up much counter space, has auto shutoff and cord-free pouring I recommend this electric kettle.  You can go to to find out more about this kettle and other products. You can also find the Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel 7.2-Cup Kettle at Also check out my review of the Hamilton Beach 5 Qt. Slow Cooker.
