You have to be careful what products you use on your skin. Look for something effective, yet gentle, with healthy ingredients and no harsh chemicals. That's why I would choose Mario Badescu again!!

Classic Floral Women's Strap.
1. Large enough straps that I can fit it comfortably over my shoulder even if I have a winter coat on. (This is why I love Silvia's Handbags because there are so many bags with long shoulder straps!)
2. Inside pockets and zipper storage for things I don't want to have loose in my handbag.
3. Decorative hardware but not too much that it weighs it down.
4. A beautiful liner. I can't stand ugly designs on the inside. After all, I have to look at it everytime I open it right?
What's your critera?
monogrammed insulated cooler from The Trendy Boutique! It's 14" x7" x12" so it's big enough for a day's worth of food and drink and you can customize it to have your name or initials. You can also pick from several different colors (red, black, and royal blue). I'll definitely be prepared this year at the beach!

Gina comes home from work everyday to find her boyfriend alreadyhome and nappin gon the couch. The place is filthy with his work boots and trash and everything from hsi workday that he brought home but didn't put away. This really bothers Gina, but she knows it will start a fight if she brings it up. So she doesn't. She decides to clean it herself because the problem goes away. The next day it happens, and the next day. A few days later, she comes home again to the same situation and her boyfriend begins to wake up. So Gina says "It would be nice for you to help out instead of sleep!" Inside, Gina is mad that she can't come home and rest because she works so hard to keep the house clean. When her boyfriend hears this, he thinks he's getting yelled at or nagged at for sleeping. They begin to bicker about sleeping and how he needs it and she could take a nap too...When it's all said and done - NOTHING is resolved That's because the problem wasn't her boyfriend sleeping...it was him not cleaning up after himself.
Now, if her boyfriend is just grouchy and refuses to ever help clean, that's on him, and that's a whole different topic.
Basically, Gina was on edge because of something else so she took it out on him during a different situation because she didn't want to bring up EXACTLY what upset her.
ALWAYS talk about things right away. If you are lucky and have a great partner, they will talk things out as well, but sometimes that isn't the case and I'll delve more into that in future blog posts.
Pictures on Gold you can find a huge selection of graduation jewelry at low prices. Whether it's a necklace charm or a bracelet charm, this is a gift that will last a lifetime!

A lot of people don’t think they can have problems with their feet. Just because it doesn’t hurt at the time, doesn’t mean your feet aren’t suffering. I used to wear flip flops all the time. I could even run in flip flops! Then it caught up to me and I had to deal with Plantar Fasciitis for a couple years. It was no fun and I am so glad I finally got rid of it. Ever since then, I began searching for shoes that have proper arch support, thick soles, and shoes that I can walk around a lot in.
Make sure you invest in a few comfortable pairs of shoes for each season, that way you never have to wind up in the situation I was in. You will thank yourself in the longrun, as will your feet!
DiamondWave has a great selection of vintage engagement rings and other wedding jewelry. Vintage engagement rings are great for people who like to be unique and different and are great for vintage-themed weddings.
And if you are looking for jewelry for the big day, DiamondWave has beautiful stud earrings. Stud earrings are great because they don't take away too much from your hairstyle, necklace, and dress, but they add just enough to make for a gorgeous finishing touch. Plus, stud earrings can be worn for so many other occassions. It's not something you will buy and only wear once!
Most websites can be ovewhelming especially with wedding jewelry, but I like how organized and easy to browse the DiamondWave website is. I love the clear descriptions and informative details. This is a website I will definitely be using in the future. I am also going to recommend it to my friends, as most of them are about to enter the "next step" in their relationship!
So next time you hear someone say how overwhelmed they are, you can point them in the right direction when it comes to finding the best jewelry for their engagement, wedding, and reception! I will keep this in mind for my big day, whenever that may be!
Melie Bianco Ruby Canvas Satchel from Silvia's Handbags! What a fun bag! I love the size of the straps and the strip down the middle gives it an extra boost of attitude!! It's a very sophisticated looking bag....perfect for the office!! What do you think?

Mastiff shirt on the Arm the Animals website today and I just love how it resembles the shirts for the band Misfits. And most people know right away what that is, so when they see Mastiff written how it is, it reminds us how breeds like this never seem to fit in because they are assumed to be aggressive or even be fighting dogs! That is so not true! My neighbor has an extremely friendly Mastiff and they have always been known to be such loyal dogs. Help raise awareness about this little issue by purchasing a shirt from Arm the Animals. Part of the proceeds goes towards helping shelter animals in America!!!
Mohawk Home provides quality rugs for your home. Their rugs are built to last and look great in your home. They come in all different sizes and all different designs. There is such a huge selection to choose from which is great because think of all the different home design possibilities there are out there? No one wants to be limited! One thing I have always admired about Mohawk Home is their enormous selection!!
As I get closer to my 30's I am more and more careful with the products I use on my skin. More than anything, I want to keep my skin healthy and youthful looking for as long as I can. Most products say they will do that for you, but when you look at the ingredients it's all man-made chemicals. That CAN'T be good for your skin!! However, with éclos Skin Care the products are actually made from natural ingredients! One of their products, the Apple Stem Cells are extracted from a rare Swiss apple and they really help to stimulate skin stem cells. Plant extracts are packed iwth vitamins and anti-oxidants that are great for your skin and combining that with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and tired skin!
I got the chance to review the eclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter Kit. It contained:
Facial Cleanser Skin Prep- This is great for refreshing your pores. It made my skin feel very alive after using it, rather then dried out or sticky as some facial products have done. It also primes your skin for treatment which is always a good idea!
Cellular Activator Face Serum-This stuff regenerates cells and rehabilitates aging skin. This is great for me since I have sun damage on my face. It felt great and my skin felt firmer after using this for a week!
Moisture Therapy Regernative Cream- The Regenerative Cream reduces lines and wrinkles and it did just that for me. I had fine lines, very very tiny ones on my face, and they almost totally disappeared after a solid week of use. I have never seen this great of results from a skin product!
Restorative Eye Cream- The skin around your eyes is so delicate and this firms it up and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and I was amazed that this worked as well as the Regenerative Cream. I used it on the fine lines around my eyes.
Instant Radiance Facial Scrub- This scrub felt soooo good on my skin! It removes dead skin cells. It made my skin able to breath and I felt refreshed and awake! It also improves texture and tones, which is important for me since my skin tone is tricky!
Skin Renewal Clay Mask-This mask is made to absorb dirt and impurities on your face and tighten and reduce pores. i have huge pores and they definitely became reduced. It looked much better when I had makeup on too!
Terry Cloth Head Band - This was great for keeping water and product out of my hair and it was super easy to put on. It didn't even mess up my hair at all which was great! It's very soft too!
And guess what! You can win this exact same kit!! All you have to do is leave a comment under this blog post with your name and email address and tell me which product in the kit you are most excited to try!!

Plantar Fasciitis is terrible. I suffer from it, not so much now as before but still I get reoccuring moments of it and it is really painful. It hurts to walk and even stand and your feet feel so cramped up!! I used these GelThotics for a couple of weeks and WOW WOW WOW did they make a huge difference when I ran and even wore them for walking during errands! They were easy to slip into my sneakers and they were very comfortable. It only took a few hours to get used to them being there.
These things are so amazing and they are waterproof and cannot absorb microbes and odors. They were not an inconvenience at all and I could run much faster and much more often since I didn't have to rest my feet for days on end like I had in the past!
