Update:: YouTube Channel + Hello Fresh Demo Link

Be Well is transitioning to the YouTube world! It is way out of my comfort zone, but as someone who is not much of a reader anyway--and who is very much a talker-- it seems like an appropriate change.

I do really love writing and since starting a blog in 2009, I have enjoyed documenting the different seasons, but writing a blog doesn't bring the same joy it used to. I also don't dedicate the time or resources to building a brand from a blog like so many other wonderful bloggers out there do.  When I got married, I quickly learned that blogging every day after work took time away from my husband, so it became a little more of a (non-paying) job than a fun hobby. Don't get me wrong, YouTube surprisingly takes a lot of time too, but for now, seems a better (faster) way to use my time.


If you have been a reader, thank you so much! If you want to join me on YouTube, I would love to see you over there! Right now, I am having a lot of fun making videos and editing them! I hope you will join in the fun and tell me what you want to see!

Check out our Hello Fresh Demo here and subscribe to my channel!


EatDrinkBeWell will still be live for a while if you want to read some older posts, but new blog type ideas will be in video format and I have some fun stuff planned! Nutrition In Real Life is the basis of our YouTube channel and the goal is to help connect Nutrition Science with Real World Eating.

I have also started a Corporate Wellness company dedicated to the same--making nutrition work in real life. You can learn more about that at NutritionIRL.com and feel free to share with your company!

So, as you can tell, written blog has taken a back seat in my life. It's so hard to stop doing something I started 8 years ago! But, when seasons change, something must go in order to make room for what the new season may bring. Think Christmas season, the tree takes up space, if we move into a new season without taking down that tree, we just add clutter to the new season. Instead, we take down the tree to make clean room for the new season coming up! That's what taking Be Well down means for me. Taking away something, to allow space in my life for something better that God has in store.

Won't you join me? Is there something that was meaningful in the last season of your life that you need to get rid of in order to make room for a new thing in a new season? Jump on YouTube and tell me about it!

Be Well,
Rainie:)


Savannah Girls' Weekend: 3 Things to do!

Savannah was a great destination for a recent bachelorrette trip to celebrate a sweet friend, Katie. If you are planning an upcoming party for a friend, consider these spots!

1. Savannah Slow Ride

Oh my gosh, this was so much fun! Reserve your tickets in advance ($30 per person) and try not to cancel. You have to pay for the cancelled spots if they don't get filled. You pedal around Savannah while stopping at fun and historic bar spots. Drinks are not included in the price, but some of the bars offer specials. Be sure to bring someone's phone who can plug their music into the system. It was great to listen to some old school NSync while we pedaled around the city! Also, bring some extra cash if you want to tip your guide!







2. Savannah Smiles Dueling Piano Bar

The talent here was amazing! We went on a Saturday night and I'm sure they have different people other nights, but we sat and listened for at least 3 hours. They are true performers and put on a wonderful show! There is a cover ($5) but if you do Savannah Slow Ride, you get in free!




3. RSVP Skinnies

Of course, the best part of any party is a fun group of friends (and some light cocktails)! Have you heard of Skinnies? It's a new cocktail mix, but better! With no artificial sweeteners, no coloring, and no calories, it just may be the perfect mix-in! They are the perfect amount of sweet and are available in flavors like Mai Tai, Gimlet, and Margarita. It even tells you what type of alcohol to mix in!

RSVP skinnies did provide samples, but opinions are my own.


What is your fave city for a girl's weekend?!

3 Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas

1) Maple Holistics Argan Oil
A few years ago, I switched from heavily scented lotions and body washes to Cera Ve, VaniCream, and Plain Dove Soap. I have wanted to try fun and natural products for a while, but rarely actually buy them!  I have been using the Argan oil for about a month now and I can really see a difference in the way my skin looks. It seems to be more evenly tone and has yet to dry out (despite running in 30 degree weather). A dime sized drop is all it takes. I wash my face each night with Proactiv Plus, then apply a small amount of argan oil. With the leftover oil, I smooth out my hair--dual purpose! It seems to last and last!

I was provided a free bottle for my review, but all opinions are my own.

If you want to try it for yourself, follow this link. Most of the products are a perfect stocking stuffer size. You can also sign up for a free sample, here. There are so many products to choose from. 

2) Regular Girl Fiber 
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of fiber. From helping to lower cholesterol, helping to feel full and stay that way, to helping stay regular, fiber has so much to offer! While it's not your conventional stocking stuffer, the regular girl on your list, will love this added benefit! With a blend of prebiotic and probiotics, gut health is totally attainable in 2017! I am an affiliate for RG so be sure to use this link when you buy! (I make a small commission, but would never recommend something I don't use myself!). Get in on their fall sale here!




3. Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin
I got my first set of these about 5 years ago and have literally worn them most days since. I don't like to wear my hair down to work, so I throw it up in these pins and by the end of the work day, there's added body thanks to the bun style (but no pony tail wave!). To say I love them would be an understatement. I tell everyone I know about the wonderful-ness of these pins!
