I decided to paint my nails and wanted to have a color that was flattering but also easy to manage. I chose a pink of course since a Diva will always be pretty in pink.
I got great nail polish from Pure Ice called Watermelon Ice.
It is a very pretty pink and it will go well with just about any skin tone.
Sorry I could not get a picture of it but you can get it at Walmart.

I have been running about busy, busy, busy and I have not been sleeping well at all. Now we all know that to be a Diva you NEED to get your beauty sleep.
However for those times when you just cannot get all the rest you need you will need some tools to fake that well rested look. We will talk about that another time though.
First you need to make your bedroom your sanctuary. You will need a few items to spruce up your sleeping quarters and make them a place that is truly fit for a Diva.
(all images are clickable and you can purchase directly from Amazon.com if you find something you like)
You do not have to have the biggest bed in the world to pamper yourself when you sleep. All you need is to make sure that it is comfortable for you when you lie down so that you can make the best of your rest.
A real Diva MUST have a memory foam pillow. While these are a bit more pricey than regular pillows they are in investment that is well worth it. The first time I slept on a memory foam pillow I almost lost my mind.
It felt so good that I wished that I had a memory foam bed to sleep in....but that is way beyond my means right now. I got one of these pillows from WalMart but you can order it through this link from Amazon and get it shipped to you.
These are just two of the things a Diva needs to make her bedroom a sanctuary. What do you use to make your boudoir better?

Hello again Divas.
It seems that lately I have been on a whitening trend so here I go with teeth whitening. I have tried teeth whitening before because I drink coffee or tea EVERY day.
We all know that those things stain your teeth and dull, yellowish teeth are NOT attractive at all. Well at least in this society.
I tried Crest Whitestrips along with some other techniques and I found that the Crest Whitestrips gave the best results for the money and time.
The strips were easy to use and in 4 days I noticed the results. I used the strips on the bottom teeth only so I could compare to the top teeth to see if they were lying.
Divas I must say I was pleasantly surprised. You could tell a DRAMATIC difference in the teeth that had the strips on and those that did not.
If you really want to whiten your teeth and have a better looking smile I suggest you use Crest Whitestrips and not any of that other stuff because it just does not work.

Hello again Divas!!!
Sorry that I have been away for so long but I really appreciate the comments. I tried waxing my armpits in order to whiten them and I have had some mixed results.
I just wanted to give an update on how the armpits look now.
This is the right armpit taken today with the camera phone. Here is what that armpit looked like when I first decided to stop shaving and start waxing.
Actually I am not sure if that is the left arm or the right arm....I mixed up the pics. But be assured that both pits are equally dark...black even.
I originally started using the wax strips shown here:
but then I ran out of them. I moved on to using the wax kit shown here instead and it was an experience!!!!
The wax kit is MUCH harder to use because you have to microwave the wax but not get it too hot where you burn yourself.
Well I warmed up the wax and then ran back to the bathroom to apply it. I got one swipe with the stick and then the stick decided to get stuck to my underarm...so I had to gently nudge it off.
I then applied the strip and pressed it down a few times. After a few seconds I grabbed the strip, said a prayer and let 'er rip.
Using the melted wax hurts more than the other wax strips.
It did take out more hair.....and skin.
I think the melted wax works better but it just takes more practice to get it done right. I will stick with that and see what happens.
I think the pits look lighter....what do you think?

I recently tried sweetening my tea with honey instead of sugar and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The honey made the tea sweet without being overpowering. Honey is also better for you than white sugar because it digest slowly and keeps your blood sugar levels more stable.
Honey is also great for hydrating your skin so it is wonderful for inside and out. All you need to do is add a teaspoon of honey to your body wash or face wash and mix well. Massage it into your skin and then rinse off.
You will feel the difference after just one use..so try it out.

Please take some time to visit my Amazon Fragrances Store when you get a chance. Right now I only have a few perfumes on there that I have PERSONALLY tried and liked.
My latest addition is Fabulosity by Kimora Lee Simmons. I got this for my birthday and I must say I feel fabulous when wearing it.
I will be adding a few more in as I find things I like but if you have any suggestions be sure to let me know.
