Garth Brooks reminds us all how precious the role of “Mom” is…

I found the highlighting of the Garth Brooks new single “Mom” to be so touching.The song talks about how God is sending a newborn baby to earth and the wonderful qualities of the new mother he will meet there. I know with the special relationship that have with my mom and my kids, that a Mom tribute song like this hits home with me.

My mom is really such a joy and a wonderful person. She has always been there with me through thick and thin (and WOW have I been through some thin!)  My  dad and she (it’s hard to think of them separately) have always been the best parents on the planet and have shown me so much love it hurts my heart to talk about it. I only hope I have embraced these same qualities and passed this unconditional love along to my children as well! Love you Mom…and thank you Garth Brooks for reminding me once again how dear she is to me! Like Garth sings “You’ll never have a better friend!”

Guest Room Baskets, LBL is the new LOL

[ 7 ] December 20, 2014 |

 Today’s “Guest Room Baskets, LBL is the new LOL” discussion was brought to you Poise #LifesLittleLeaks

Hostess created Guest Room Baskets

Guest Room Baskets #LifesLittleLeaks

Create the perfect stay with a guest room basket

When guest come to stay, I love to create a special basket just for them, full of little surprises to make their stay extra special. Whenever I go to a hotel, I always like to check the shampoos and toiletries that they have chosen for me so that I feel pampered and I like to create that same feeling for my guests.

Items to include in a guest room basket

  • A shower cap
  • Make-up wipes
  • Nail polish and nail polish remover
  • Cotton balls and makeup sponges
  • Fragrant soaps
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Razor
  • A collection of personal care products including Poise Microliners for LBL, tampons, and other feminine care products

Wait! Why include liners for LBL in your guest room baskets? What is LBL?

LBL is light bladder leakage (LBL). Many women face LBL every day when they laugh or exercise or cough. Sometimes even something as simple as walking with a full bladder can result in LBL. As an overnight guest, staying over at someone’s house changes your regular routine so this can be a trigger for LBL. A thoughtful hostess can include a few Poise® Microliners with SAM (Super Absorbent Material) in the guest room baskets and provide protection against LBL.

Poise Microliners are the thinnest liner available on the market and are extra absorbent. Poise Microliners feature SAM (Super Absorbent Material) to help women manage life’s little leaks with confidence, without feeling weighed down!

LBL is the new LOL!

During the holidays, as Marilyn, Poise’s company blogger points out, many women are very concerned about LBL. Parties and holiday gatherings can create all kinds of LBL concerns including excessive leakage from laughing, eating foods that trigger LBL, and ruining your party outfit. Guests often get laughing and talking and forget about their regular needs.

Guest Room Baskets #LifesLittleLeaks

A good hostess considers LBL in her party planning resources

Guest Room Baskets #LifesLittleLeaks

A simple beautiful jar placed on or under the bathroom counter, containing  Poise® Microliners labeled discreetly,  will ease guests minds. As one out of three women experience LBL, Poise® Microliners will be a welcome addition to your party planning and guest hosting supplies!

Yves Saint Laurent



YVES SAINT LAURENT ($50.00 hardcover, 9780500517604) is a dazzling portrait of the designer and his world of fashion over the last 25 years of his career by legendary backstage fashion photography pioneer Roxanne Lowit.

I have not received this book yet as it has a release date of Nov. 4, 2014. The subject intrigued me because he defined the 1970s in terms of cool cutting edge fashion. An accomplishment I particularly admired is that he:
