How to multi-task your way to a stress free holiday

PHOENIX - The holidays are here and that means everything you normally do is topped off with extra responsibilities like holiday cards, shopping, and of course parties.  If you're burning the candle at both ends founder, Lisa Kasanicky, says the key is to multi-task.

Kasanicky says one way to do it all is to bring the spa into your other responsibilities.  She suggests wearing a pair of Glamour Gloves from Bliss Spa while you are running errands.

"You may look funny but you know what, your skins going to be softer than theirs," said Kasanicky.

From hands to feet, Kasanicky suggests soaking your tootsies while you write out your holiday cards.  Another great way to multi-task with your beauty is to wear a facial mask while you watch your favorite holiday show with the family.  Get the color right and you may even look like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas or Frosty.

If you're worried about packing on the holiday pounds, Kasanicky says you can try the Bliss Fat Girl 6-Pack, which you just rub on your problem areas and go on about your business.  

Here's one final suggestion from Kasanicky.

"Take some time out for yourself, we all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of getting to parties, so just take a little time to sip some tea and sit by the fire."


Winter Weather Tips

Winter weather is rolling into the state and Arizonans will be making a run to the high country for some holiday cheer.  If you plan to hit the road, the experts at Community Tire have some advice to keep you safe on the road.

1.  Check your tire depth and pressure to make sure they are safe for winter driving.

2.  Test your windshield wipers to make sure they are working properly.

3.  Create an emergency kit with the following products: cat litter, gloves, flashlight, blanket, extra jacket, ice scraper, and chains.

If you find yourself caught in snow or icy conditions, they offer this advice.

1.  Slow down, keep your cool, and drive defensively. 



2.  Drive with the other person in mind.  You may be comfortable on ice and snow but your fellow traveler may not be, allow space and time for driver errors.



3.  Braking will be only as good as your tire grip on the snow and ice, try slow application of brakes and use a tapping of the pedal rather than heavy fast pressure.  This will help you maintain control. Hard braking can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
4.  Watch the vehicle ahead to determine the driving conditions, watch for driver reaction to road conditions and adjust speed accordingly. 
5.  Should you go into a spin do not drive against the spin this can make things worse. Turn your steering wheel gently in the direction of the spin and attempt to slow your vehicle using the brake taping action.
