Sijang Tacos #NomNom

Sijang Tacos
*I was monetarily compensated. All words and thoughts are my own.
Sijang Crowdfunding<>Sijang Facebook<>Sijang Twitter

Sijang needs your help! Their Crowdfunding campaign is LIVE! They need support and funds to make their dreams a reality. Please share with your family and friends. Thank you for supporting local Northern Virginia businesses!

My mouth is watering at the anticipation of eating one of Sijang's culinary creations! Chris Fitzer(pictured above) is the Chef and mastermind behind Sijang located right here in Northern Virginia. Sijang is what I would consider Fusion Cuisine. Chris combines Mexican, Korean, and Vietnamese influences. This next point is particularly important to all you foodies: Chris states that it is very important to him to respect the cultural influences these creative dishes are coming from. As you can imagine, the end results are some mighty interesting and tasty dishes. Drooling yet? Stay with me.

Sijang Pho Dog
The Sijang "Pho Dog".

Nom nom nom nom nom....Okay, I am back:) The Sijang "Pho Dog" is the dish I am coveting the most. I cannot wait to eat the Pho Dog! Get in my belly now. The pho dogs are served on a lightly 
toasted bun, the inside of the bun is brushed with hoisin sauce, topped with thai basil, bean sprouts, 
 and a ginger-sesame based slaw. 

Sijang Tacos
 The Sijang " Korean-Mexican Taco".

The Korean-Mexican inspired taco from Sijang also looks incredible! Where are you? I want to eat you. Again, in my belly. They are served on two warm corn tortillas with beef marinated in soy, sesame, and honey(traditional Korean BBQ style) topped with a napa cabbage slaw. A soy, sesame, and ginger vinaigrette is served on top with cilantro and red onion. Limes are served on the side.

Chris and Sijang care deeply about the community of Northern Virginia and about "giving back". Chris recently had a food drive for the Woodbridge Homeless Outreach Association. He also plans on donating a portion of his profits from Sijang to local homeless shelters. So every time you eat a Sijang dish, you can feel good inside and out knowing your belly is full and that you are helping someone else have a full belly too! Now pat your head and belly simultaneously, while visiting Sijang's Crowdfunding page! Good Luck Sijang! We are cheering for you all the way.

Well & Good Shopping Gift Guide #WellGoodHoliday

*I was monetarily compensated for this post. All words are mine. Well & Good is located at 118 South Street SE, Leesburg, VA 20175 in Market Station.

Well & Good is a piece of Eco beauty heaven right here in Loudoun County, Virginia! They offer top shelf Organic beauty products and holistic care consulting sessions with the owner Lauri Bosserman(whom is a Registered Nurse and holistic health coach). According to Lauri, “I have taken the time to carefully review the ingredients in each product to ensure they are clean, healthy, and effective. Understanding every ingredient is essential to your overall health and the performance of the product. If I refuse to put something in my body; I don’t want to put it on my skin either. Our skin is our largest organ, and what we put on it, is absorbed into our body".

Lauri founded the boutique following her sister's diagnosis with breast cancer. Her mission is to educate men and women on the importance of clean beauty products for their health internally and externally.Among the top brands at Well & Good are RMS beauty, May Lindstrom, Josh Rosebrook Skin and Haircare, Ilia Beauty, and Earth Tu Face.

Well and Good are also huge small business supporters and have located the best local area artisans to include: Skincando, Waxing Kara, Karmalades, Oh So Good Organics, Sydney Hale Co., and Eco Bathhouse. Lauri Bosserman wants to share with you her top holiday gift picks at the Well & Good studio! Without further adieu, I give you The Well & Good Holiday Shopping Guide!!!

One Love Organics
The Jet Setter

Inside your will find:Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser, Brand New Day Microderma Scrub & Masque, Skin Savior Waterless Multi Balm, and My New Best Friend Skin Shammy.

Stuff that Stocking
RMS beauty is the Organic make up standard. Well & Good Studio carries RMS beauty and those little pots fit perfectly into a stocking*wink wink*. The living luminizer, Beloved Lip2Cheek, and Sacred Lip Shine are Lauri's personal recommendations! Another thumbs up from Lauri, goes to Amber Blue Anti-aging serum. Amber Blue's little blue bottle chocked full of 16 skin nourishing Organic oils will fit nicely into any young ladies stocking;-) Looking for another quick and sweet treat for the stocking? How about a Waxing Kara Honey Lollipop? Delicious straight up or in a nice spot of tea!

Well & Good Studio

Sydney Hale Co.

Oh Ladies!
May Lindstrom is one of my all-time favorites and she made Lauri's list too! The Good Stuff body oil rejuvenates, hydrates, and leaves your skin glowing! I heard it smells fabulous too with a mixture of cocoa, rose, lavender, and ylang-ylang. Sign me up! Another great gift for the ladies is the natural soy candles from Sydney Hale Co. These local and natural soy candles will impress even the most difficult ladies to please and purchase for! Lauri(and I for that matter) highly recommend this next brand: Earth Tu Face.

Lauri recommends that you grab the Dead Sea Salt Scrub to exfoliate and moisturize those winter skin woes away! Another Earth Tu Face honorable mention is the Jasmine Body Lotion. This magnificent sounding body lotion contains three types of Jasmine flowers as well as Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Olive Oil, and Vitamin E to protect and nourish your skin These gifts are great for the girlfriends who already have everything!

Well & Good Studio

Something for the Boys!
Inside this cabinet lies the skincare miracle of Skincando! They have skincare for THE entire family. The Combat-Ready Balm, however, is the balm that can do it all! It helps with eczema, chaffes, minor burns, scrapes, bug bites, severe dryness, jock itch, you name the ailment and it probably does something;-) My kids call it the "boo boo cream". Whenever they get a minor scratch they call for it by name! Ahhhh...Instant relief.

As you can see, Well & Good Studio has something Merry, Organic, Beautiful, and Ethically made for the entire family! So give your loved ones the gift of Organic Beauty & Wellness this holiday season. Have a very Happy Holiday season from our family to yours!

Top Blogger series on YouTube

Top Blogger In our new YouTube series Top Blogger, Carin Kilby Clark of Memoirs of a Clueless Woman and I are exploring every detail of what it take to become a Top Blogger. No longer do you have to wander "the Google" searching for the answers you seek. Follow along during our YouTube and *coming soon*Podcast series to see if you have what it takes to climb the mountain to influential stardom.

Why are we starting the Top Blogger series? To help young aspiring bloggers and to bring attention to the NEW Virginia Bloggers Club. Carin and I want to help connect local and national brands with the perfect dedicated blogger for their campaign. Also, we want to bring awareness to blogger equality. Some small businesses will attempt to pay bloggers with paperclips and sticks of bubble gum. That is not okay. Likewise, bloggers must insist on being compensated(as any trained professional should be) for their time and efforts.

The Virginia Bloggers Club is helping to connect businesses that know the value that bloggers bring to their businesses, products, and services. Bloggers have an established audience of online friends that trust their opinions and feedback. Most bloggers(even when paid) speak honestly without a filter when reviewing a product and/or service. They cherish the bond they have with their audience. The Virginia Bloggers Club is getting quality and motivated DMV bloggers the financial compensation they deserve and small businesses are getting high-end promotions as a result.

Stay Tuned as Top Blogger picks up speed for tips and tricks of the trade. Also, please leave us questions and feedback. We will be doing special Q&A sessions with your questions and feedback. Thank you for joining us and good luck on your blog endeavors! Cheers to the influencers of the world!

Invisible Wound and High Heeled Happy Hour #VeteransDay

Saluting our Veterans and thanking them on this special day is very nice, but supporting them first hand at a local event is an even greater "Thank You". Tomorrow is a very special High Heeled happy hour with special guest Gale Warren Paige, whom is the founder of Invisible Wound right here in our backyard of Leesburg, Va. Proceeds will also go to benefit Hope Lives There.

Brambleton Fall Fest 2014 & CPL Preschool

Who's ready for the huge Fall event known as the Brambleton Fall Fest? I hope you are ready, because it is tomorrow from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Lots of food, activities, vendors, and tons of fun
for the whole family! I will be there LIVE and in person representing the Cooperative Preschool of Loudoun(CPL). CPL is the only non-cooperative preschool in Loudoun County!

What does "cooperative" mean? It means it is a parent run preschool. Parents also help in the classroom and get to assist in their child's early education. The experience has been wonderful and I am delighted to be a part of such an important aspect of my children's early eduction. CPL will be selling delicious baked goods at our booth, so be sure to stop by and say hi!

Eco Bathhouse will be sponsoring the CPL table and will have all-natural bath goodies for the hard working mamas! The CPL family and Eco Bathhouse are excited to be a part of the Brambleton Fall Fest 2014, which is quickly becoming a tradition in the making. We hope to see your family there tomorrow!

Breast Feeding is Beautiful #PBAP2014

When did mother nature become so vile and scary? How as a society have we come to shame mother's for publicly taking care of their helpless children? Why do breast feeding mother's have to hide in bathrooms, in corners, and under blankets for fear of public persecution?
...As a society, we have gotten so uncomfortable with the things that make us human, the things that come so naturally to us. We ignore our instincts; we eat chemicals and slather them on our skin. For me, breastfeeding was probably the most natural experience I have ever had and has ignited in me a passion to explore a more organic way of life. When a baby needs to eat, you need to feed it - and if you're breastfeeding, that often means nursing in very public places and usually at the most inopportune times. It's important to me to see this become normal - because it is, in fact, one of the most normal things a mother can do.
                   Blaire Ring, Photographer of Second Ave Photography

Hide no more. Leilani Rodgers started a public breast feeding awareness month campaign #PBAP2014 and recruited the help of other incredibly talented photographers to help "spread the word" via her Facebook page. One such photographer is Northern Virginia's own Blaire Ring of Second Ave Photography. Her image of a tired mama grocery shopping while breast feeding her child is simply magnificent and is being featured with other talented photographers on the front page of the Huffington post!

One last note. Breast feeding is the most loving start you can provide for your baby. These photographers are using their incredible artistry and talents to bring light to a societal taboo that should be no longer. Strong work photographers.

Time Management Made Easy #GoodReads

Study Shows Mothers Get 13 Fewer Hours of “Me” Time but New Time Management Book for Busy Moms Shows Them How to Get All That Time Back
WASHINGTON, June 18, 2014 — A recent study from BabyCenter reveals that the newest generation of mothers get 13 fewer hours of “me” time but thankfully, the new book by author and parenting expert, Carin Kilby Clark called Time Management Made Easy for Busy Moms, (available on Amazon) has five tips that show busy moms how to recoup all those hours for themselves.
Mimi Green of Maryland is living proof. Before she read and implemented the tips in Clark’s new book, she was one of thousands of moms who studies show are exhausted and stressed-out with literally no time for herself.

Green is married with two kids, works one full time job out of the home, owns a small home-based business embellishing shoes, used to start her days in chaos and they went downhill from there.

She got up early, worked on her home-based business, made breakfast and lunches, helped get everyone ready for work and school, and then left for her full time job as an executive assistant.
Once back at home, she made dinner, did the laundry, went to work on her home business for three hours, then literally collapsed into bed only to wake-up to the same tiring cycle again in the morning.
Enter best-selling author Carin Kilby Clark with her book, Time Management Made Easy for Busy Moms which Green read in just under 45 minutes during her lunchtime at work.
“I used to constantly complain how little time I had for myself, was always tired and honestly did not really know how to make my life any better, ” said Green.
“As soon as I read Time Management Made Easy for Busy Moms the book literally showed me the specifics on how to manage and control my time and get the “me” time I so desperately needed.
I now start my “to do” list with a verb, know more effective ways to prioritize everything, sleep better and love the time I spend running by myself and it’s all due to Carin Clark’s tips,” she continued.
Along with her readers who use her tips, author Carin Kilby Clark walks her talk.
“I have three kids at home, run a successful live and online coaching business at find time to write books, and lavish myself with personal renewal time every day,” says Clark.
“The reason I wrote Time Management Made Easy for Busy Moms is because the number one complaint I heard from my clients was that they had no time for themselves. They felt scattered, unfocused and felt like they were destined to live a life of chaos.
Since I had already discovered the five secrets that transformed my life into one where I have a full day each week that focuses just on me, I wanted to share my tips with every mom to help them reap those same benefits.
I spend my personal day pampering myself, get a manicure and pedicure, watch TV shows I recorded and use a portion of the day to plan new ways to help moms achieve the peaceful life I have and am so deeply grateful for,” states Clark.
Reader reviews on Amazon say the book is: “A Mom’s Dream Come True, Inspiring and Useful, and one with Quick Actionable Strategies that Do Exactly What the Book Promises.”
Fans say Time Management Made Easy for Busy Moms gives you:
• A book you can read in 30 minutes
• Easy to implement strategies that are effortless
• Actionable advice to apply to everyday life
• Insights that help you get to the root of your time management challenges
• Quotes and inspiration to motivate you to take action and get more time for yourself
