I have a serious crush on this manicure done with fairy dust!!!
It is so pretty with the gradient and then the fairy dust just makes everything pop! What is even more amazing is the creator's husband actually gave her the inspiration for her nail.
Go check it out here.

It is important to stay well hydrated to keep your skin looking moist and plump. I usually carry water bottles with me and fill them up at home and at work when I can.
I live in a place with hard water that is also not the best quality. Many people choose to buy bottled water but I invested in a water filter and prefer to carry my own water. I had a bottle that worked quite well for a few months. I would use it for about three days before washing it everything was fine.
Recently I noticed that it would smell odd after just one day of use no matter how well I washed it. I guess that means it is time to get a new bottle so I bought another one. This one a metal cover and it would smell funny after just one day as well.
I heard about these Nalgene bottles that supposedly solved the problem so I decided to try one. It holds 32 ounces which is about half the suggested water intake for the day. This means I will have to drink two of these to get the suggested hydration for my daily needs.
I hope these can last a couple of days before smelling bad like my first bottle did. In any case I will just get another one and use one per day and wash every night so it can be dry and ready for the next day.

I recently went on a shopping trip as I wanted a small purse or wristlet for those quick trips. I needed something I could put my phone and keys in for when I needed to just run out quickly but did not feel like carrying a larger purse.
I found these two beauties at Target and I instantly fell in love.
Here is the wristlet.
Here is the body bag.
This one is a little bigger than the wristlet and can hold more items. I think it is perfect for a night out when I may carry a few more items but not enough to need a big purse. My tablet can also fit in this bag so I may use it for some days when I have class.
The cross body bag is a sea foam green while the wristlet is a powdery blue. They are both made of this soft leather and feel quite luxe and just right for a diva!!!
Happy shopping everyone.

In the spirit of eating better I am trying to get more fruits and vegetables into each meal. This involves a bit of prep before hand as I like to get everything washed and portioned out..so I can just grab a portion for each meal.
In the past my breakfast would just be a cheese sandwich and some tea.
As you can see I have added some carrots and cherries to the breakfast. I also reduced the cheese by using grated cheese instead of slices. This has reduced the cheese by about half!!!
I am also using DanActive probiotics as I heard active cultures help with digestion and can aid weight loss!

I am finding it so difficult to stay motivated to get going with the exercise. I have a really easy set of things to do...all I planned on doing is walking 20 minutes on the treadmill on alternating days. I also set to do 10 minutes of abs and yoga on the days that I am not doing the cardio.
I always start off well and make it to the third day and something happens and I quit on day 4. I will pick up again two days later but always end up falling off the wagon.
I know intellectually that I need to exercise but I am just finding it very hard to stay motivated to do it all.

I just bought a tube of CoverGirl Colorlicious lip gloss in Fruitilicious and I am thrilled with the purchase. I have always loved fuchsia lip gloss and wanted to wear it but could never really find a shade or formula that I thought looked good on me.
I came across the CoverGirl Colorlicious in Fruitilicious and while it does not look very nice on the site it is a vibrant shade in the store.
I used it once I got home and I am completely in love.
The formula is very smooth and it smells GREAT. It is not sticky or greasy and provides a sheer yet pretty color on your lips.
Best of all it looks great on me and has now been added to my collection of favorite glosses. You can pick this up at your local Walmart or you can use the link below to buy from Amazon. Please note the link below contains my affiliate link so I will receive a commission if you purchase after using it.

I found this great article about the 5 Biggest Myths About Weight Loss...And Why They're Wrong and I just wanted to share it with you.
I think this is really good, simple information that everyone can use. It is also helpful for me now that I am starting the 8 hour 'diet'. It is not really a diet in the sense of restricting certain foods..it is more of a lifestyle.
Anyway, check out the myths surrounding weight loss and let me know what you think!
