I love the change of season, especially Spring. It’s the ONE season that feels like it’s nature’s way of hitting the refresh button. It’s the time I weed through my closet and makeup. Rearrange the furniture, etc. Of course that means SHOPPING for things like a chic purse in a bold color, dangling effortlessly from my arm as I pretend to stroll the Champs-Élysées (OK, so I’m at the mall). I love to add a sprinkle of sparkle with some statement jewelry — think playful earrings that catch the sunlight and delicate bracelets that whisper of new beginnings. And let’s not forget about hair accessories! Those whimsical vibes of the season with colorful scrunchies and hair clips add a touch of charm to every outfit. And behind the scenes? Well, every fresh start needs a trusty light-up mirror for those flawless makeup moments and a scale to keep us on track with our springtime wellness goals. With these essentials by our side, I’m ready to bloom and embrace all the beauty that spring has to offer! I hope that you are TOO. Here’s a look into what I’ve added this season (so far).

Nexus Pro Wireless Body Composition Scale

A perfect gift for moms or dads who are health + fitness conscious to help easily track fitness goals would be iHealth’s Nexus Pro Wireless Body Composition Scale. Today’s scales are not old school scales by any means to just hop on and off to check your weight and then throw back into a bathroom cabinet or closet, but critical tools now for essential smart health management — -featuring:

  • 12 Essential Body Composition Analysis — The digital bathroom scale not only supports weight measurement but also heart rate, body fat percentage analyzer, BMI, body water %, muscle mass, body age, etc.
  • Sync with Apps — Free download MyVitals app at the App Store or Google Play, and MyVitals app can easily sync with other fitness Apps like Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, and so on, which lets you store and share your data more conveniently
  • Sleek Design — The durable design with 6mm tempered glass is thicker and larger than most others and with 4 anti-slip pads which makes it more comfortable and safer to stand on.

It’s time to keep track so I can get into that new bathing suite that I bought.
