Not Your Everyday Valentine's Gift Guide

Just when you start to recoup from the financial strain of Christmas and you think you can breathe again, it's Valentine's Day.  

Well, we here at Busy Women's Health have told you time and time again that we are here for you.  Whether you are shopping for that special busy woman or you are shopping for those who support you, we have put a list of five, Her and Him Must-Haves.  We even threw a few ideas for together gifts in there.

Of course we will start with the gifts for the busy woman.

For Her:

#5 on our list is the Coola Liplux.  This is Carly's FAVORITE and must have "chapstick".  With SPF 30 and vitamin enrichment, this beauty comes in original or tinted and is sure to leave your valentine's lips kissably soft and healthy.  



#4 is the SUNMAY Rechargeable Sonic Heated Eye Forehead Wrinkle Remover.  We all know that one lady who never gets enough sleep and is always saying they are puffy and "squinty," this is the gift for them.  This baby can be charged and thrown in her purse so she can use it whatever time of day she needs it.  (While this is on the "For Her" list, I know a few guys who would use this, too.)



#3, and definitely a must have of my closet, the Muck Boot.  Not all women are heels and dress.  This is the perfect gift for that outdoor, gettin' it done girl.  With so many options of styles and colors, this boot can still show off their personal flare all while ensuring they can get the job done in comfort.  Hose 'em off and she can literally go out for a casual dinner or beer and never have to change.





#2 because who doesn't like to be reminded they are loved.  This necklace is sure to go with any outfit, whether jeans or dress.  Bonus factor, she can learn to say I love you in 100 different languages.


#1 on our list just may already live in the Busy Women's Blogger Homes.  We just love our long distance touch lamps.  Give that special someone in your life a lifeline to their best friend, mom or whoever, and they are sure to shower you with Valentines Day Love and Appreciation.









Ready to see what you can get the person behind the busy woman?  Here you go.

For Him:


#5 is the blue tooth beanie.  While this isn't a new concept, it is one that seems to garner a lot of love when given.  Trust us, Carly and I have already gifted one to our other halves. Perfect for the hiker, the builder, the runner and even the gamer.  This is truly an "every man" will appreciate and love type of gift.

#4 on our list are these super cool whiskey glasses.  These are perfect, whether he is the hunter, the protect and serve kind or just likes to drink his beverage of choice from a super manly glass, this is the gift for him. (PS they also have beer pint glasses/mugs). You won't catch my husband with a whiskey in any other glass.

#3 on our list is for that coffee drinking dog lover.  It's never any fun having to leave your furbaby at home while you work.  Now your biggest supporter can think of their furry friend every time they take a sip. (And let's be honest, you know you want one, too.)






#2 The ultimate gift for the techy or just plain cool dude.  With a USB port for direct link to a smartphone, ipad, camera, laptop, etc, this little unit is sure to please even that hard to shop for person.  This mini projector is portable and durable, great to view movies in larger format, or to get a bigger picture/better experience with that video game they love. 




#1 is the Jerry Can Bar.  Re-purposed old stuff is always so cool.  What's more nostalgic than something dubbed "the can that won World War II" made into the perfect wall bar setup for his man cave or tailgate companion?  Etsy has quite a selection, so finding your person's perfect one should be a  breeze.  Now, these do take time to make and most are not made until ordered, but this is one product that definitely will be worth the wait.

Want to get gifts together? Plan a monthly date night and sign up for Snackcrate.  You can try foods from other countries and never have to leave your kitchen.  

Don't want to do food but still want to relax together? Check out companies like Merry Maids and have your house clean before you ever get home, leaving plenty of time for all the happy and sappy romance. 

And don't forget sometimes old school is the best school.  Look for local dance studios that teach couples dance or buy a pass for the museums in your area.  Groupon may even have some fantastic deals in your area for just such outings. 

Happy shopping and sharing the love.

I'll be back soon!

Introducing Miss Kelly

Welcome to the start of our new monthly series.  

Here at Busy Women's Health we have been trying to come up with a way to share the stories of our followers.  Carly and I finally decided that the simple route was best.  

We have reached out to a few of our friends and gotten their stories directly from them and now we're sharing them with you.  

Of course, since we know the first few ladies, we may just throw in a few "details" of our own.

Busy Woman #1 - Introducing Miss Kelly.

Kelly is one rockstar of a busy woman.  Just looking into her crazy list of responsibilities and businesses can make a person tired.

She is a High School Agriculture Teacher, FFA Adviser, Yearbook Advisor, Junior Class Sponsor, County 4-H Leader, Erie Recreation Volleyball and Basketball Coach, Neosho County (KS) Farm Bureau Board President and Women's Chair, and Kansas Pet Professional Executive Secretary.  She also owns and manages the personal businesses of Snapshots by KellyKlassy Kelly&…

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.

Please Stop Asking When I'm Getting Married

"When are YOU getting married?"

This is a question that has begun to haunt me as an unmarried, unengaged woman in a long-term relationship. Well, that and "when are you going to have kids?" But, that's a subject to broach another time.

What do you say to that? It's not as if we've secretly gotten engaged, set a date and haven't told anyone. Responding truthfully with "I don't know" doesn't seem like the right response.

I've learned to brace myself at gatherings and social functions (especially weddings) for this inevitable question. 

Now, I am completely aware that the asker is simply trying to take an interest in my life and that the question is meant in a completely harmless way. I don't take offense to it, I just get asked this A LOT.

You know who doesn't get asked this question...like ever?

My boyfriend.

I recall an event a while back where I fielded this question about half a dozen or more times. On our way home, I asked …
