We all know that one of the best ways to keep looking great is to get a great night's rest. Being a Diva is not easy and our days are just filled with challenge after challenge, so it is not always easy to fall asleep.
Here are a few tips that will help the Diva in you to get a better night sleep, regardless of what the day throws at you.
Get a Massage
A good massage will help to relax you and put you to sleep. In fact, according to a recent issue of World, studies show that a weekly 15 minute massage can dramatically reduce stress levels.
Go on a Date
It is sometimes easy for us Divas to forget the men in our lives, especially when we are all over the place being fabulous.
Every now and then a true Diva needs to go on a 'date' with her hubby. This will help to reconnect the couple, leading to a reduction in stress levels once more.
Sniff some Lavender
We all know that lavender puts babies right to sleep so why should it be different for us grown ups? Get some lavender scented bath oil or put lavender sachets under your pillow and drift off into a blissful sleep.
Get some Flowers
I love flowers and studies have shown that just looking at flowers can relax you. Get some pretty flowers to look at and keep some in the bedroom to mellow you out.

I just finished reading a funny article from one of my favorite Pink Diva Bloggers, Xiaxue. She talks about people hating Pretty Girls with Long nails.
Xiaxue has long nails and did a review of the iPhone which got her into trouble because she feels that it does not cater to people who have long nails.
She then got a backlash from people who think she is stupid or a tramp for having the long nails and wanting to look pretty all the time.
I say more power to you girl. If you want to look dolled up all the time there is nothing wrong with that. She is not hurting anyone and if they don't like it then they should just not read her blog.

I found a site that had some Rapid Weight Loss Tips and Tricks that really sounded good. In some cases they were not really 'rapid' because they will take some effort.
The thing I liked about this article is that the tips seemed more realistic. One tip said to cut out sugar and you can do this by limiting the number of sugary drinks you have for the day. You don't have to wage a full out war and completely eliminate sugar...but you can have more water with meals and that will help.
Go read the post and let me know what you think.

I thought I had a pretty good handle on the waxing procedure with waxing my underarm area so I decided to move on to another area.
I think anyone who has tried waxing has heard of the Waxing My Hoo Ha horror story. It details the experience of a lady who tried to wax her hoo ha and what happened.
I did not think my experience would be like that because I was going to take more care with the wax. I decided to try a small area just south of my navel...before tackling the more sensitive parts of my lady bits.
I put the wax strip on, held the skin taught and let it rip.
After the stars cleared up from my eyes I saw that the strip had only come off about halfway. There was hair sticking to it so all was not lost.
I decided that I could not go through with this so I carefully peeled off the rest of the strip and applied the soothing oil.
I will stick to depilatory cream for my lady bits.
I also found some interesting information on Waxing the Lady Bits and Brazilian Waxing. The comments are good too.

I have never been a girly girl and as such I was not into makeup at all. I saw a friend of mine wearing false eyelashes and they looked so beautiful that I just decided I had to try them out.
I think that wearing fake eyelashes makes a Diva look truly fabulous and I wanted to try something a bit different.
I also found this post from my favorite beauty blogger Xiaxue who wrote about How To Get Beautiful Eyes. The tips seemed simple enough so I figured it would not be too difficult to get the fake lashes on.
I was wrong.
It takes a lot of work to put on makeup and false eyelashes are no different.
I followed the steps they said:
- Apply glue to lashes
- Let glue become tacky
- Apply lashes along eye close to real lashes
I did all the steps and the lashes were not looking right. The first time I tried I think they were too high above my real lashes so I took them off and redid them.
The next time they were close but I could not open my eyes all the way and they felt heavy. I tried putting them on again a few more times and ended up mangling the lashes so badly that I had to throw them out.
I am going to try again and maybe get some pictures this time.

First here is a beautiful red keyhole dress for those nights out.
And here is a cute top for you to wear with your jeans and espadrilles when you are hanging out at a barbecue.
These clothes are simple yet stunning, a perfect look for any Diva out there.

Ladies everywhere you can save money on your hair this summer by keeping it simple. You can have great looking hair with minimal effort and frugal use of products.
Headbands are big this summer and can instantly take your hair style from boring to beautiful in a simple and cheap way. Invest in a few cheap headbands and scarves to change up your look every day without breaking the bank.
This is the simplest style to achieve but you can change it around so much to look fresh. Try a high pony tail one day and then try a low slung side pony the next. Accessorize with things you already have and you have interesting looking hair styles without spending a lot of money. Putting your hair up in a pony tail also means that you do not need to use gels and mousse to keep the hair looking nice so that also saves you a bit of money.
Can you think of any other simple yet stylish looks that help you to save money on your hair care?

Here are Three of the Top Beauty Myths. Do you believe these myths and unintentionally harm yourself and your skin?
- Certain Foods Make you Break out. Not true. Stress makes you break out.
- Vitamin E prevents scarring. Not true. Silicone strips work better. All vitamin E does is moisturize.
- Raised Moles are bad. Raised moles are ok and generally not dangerous.

Now that the summer heat is here all Divas are breaking out the sexy strapless outfits. We are heading out into the sun more and wearing the shorts and skirts that show off our beautiful skin.
While most people use a sunblock on their bodies when they go out...most of us neglect our faces.
I use Oil Of Olay Moisturizer with SPF 15 on a daily basis on my face. I wear it even if it is cloudy out, just so I get in the habit of always wearing SPF and moisturizer on my face.
What do you use?
