On Healthy Options' All-Natural Eggs, Gluten-Free Diet, Binge Eating, and More

Going gluten-free this week and can feel the difference already. After experiencing fatigue, bloating, anxiety, acne and lots of other gastro-intestinal symptoms, I think this is the way forward. Wish me luck in cutting out all gluten.

I know that going gluten-free is a serious and significant commitment, so I did my research and had some tests in advance. I found out that barley is the root cause of  my digestive symptoms. Another cause may be because I'd been watching Netflix while binge eating a lot lately. I used to sit down and watch an entire season at once, and finish a bag of chips and chocolate bar at the same time. Yes, I admit I'm guilty of the binge-watch, binge-eat scenario.

So, step aside, wheat and barley. Hit the road, gluten-free diet.

Watsons Launches its Newest Celebrity Endorser and Switch and Save TVC

Summer is here and ‘tis the season for Watsons to be on my regular errand route. Whether it’s meds, under eye cream for my extra tired peepers or wet wipes, Watsons is my one-stop-shop for all things home/health/beauty related. What makes Watsons even better is the number of ways you can save when shopping there.

With so many bills, expenses, including the over-a-hundred-thousand tuition fee, it can be overwhelming. We're faced with tightening budgets, forced to choose where we would spend and where we would cut down.

That is why I thank Watsons for helping me save time, money and well, my sanity. With its “Switch & Save” campaign, I was able to compare the difference between Watsons products and other leading brands. Seriously, Watsons has all products with the quality I look for, up to 80% less. Smart shoppers (like me) can save on their personal care essentials in order to afford more of the things they really wanted. All they had to do was shift from the leading brand to the Watsons brand.

Watsons recently launched their newest celebrity endorser, Kylie Padilla, as well as the new Switch and Save TV commercial.  Find out why it’s time to Switch and Save!
