Has anyone ever told you that you need to get your priorities in check? When I hear this, I not only think that it is a harsh statement, but it seems they might be suggesting that you are acting irresponsible and judging the way you choose to live your days—your life. We unknowingly make day-to-day decisions, big and small, that we prioritize without even knowing it.
After the long Memorial Day weekend, a co-worker asked me what I did and if I had a nice day off. I explained how I made a shoe wall that was built with bookshelves from Ikea, something I’ve been dying to do. She laughed and said, “So that was the priority for the weekend!?” and I thought, “YES!” but it was more than that. Sure, I could’ve been more productive and done laundry, worked out or gone grocery shopping, but I didn’t. It would be easy for someone to say, “Haha, priorities of a basic millennial.” Honestly, it was more than just the shoes (and a lot of them) … I needed that weekend to build a space for myself, one that I felt comfortable and happy to walk into. I think it’s choices like that, the kind that may seem silly to others, are the ones we need without even realizing why at the time.
CAREER OR LOVE: Oh, the theory that you can’t have both! I never looked at love that way. I never consciously made the decision that work OR love has to be the priority. I think when you meet the right person, you both should know each other enough to feel secure within the relationship and be capable of compromising. Some believe that your significant other should always come first and that’s ok. Although, I would want someone to have their own thing, a passion for something other than me and the relationship. Sure, who doesn’t want to feel important? Ideally, it is just as important to grow as individuals as it is to grow together and build a strong foundation.

OK, so we were naughty…but hey after Christmas it’s standard to feel more stuffed than a little rich girl’s stocking. We all love to enjoy just as many cookies as Santa Claus, but hate resembling Old Saint Nick, having to put our stretchy pants on. (No those sounds aren’t Christmas Carols, it is the noise of discomfort in our belly’s).
Unfortunately, wishing you had your reindeer’s to carry you around town while you continue to digest isn’t an option. If you are still making sounds of pain that hardly resemble Christmas cheer maybe you need a Post-Christmas cleanse! However, it’s not all about looking slim, but rather keeping your spirits bright and feeling less like Mr. Scrooge.

People who have normal or oily skin should indulge in champagne as a natural skin toner. The fermentation of the grapes in the champagne help fight free radicals and the tartaric acid helps lighten skin and even out skin tone. The bubbles in champagne can also help constrict pores to give your skin a gorgeous glow. While you may be nervous to use champagne because of the alcohol content, most toners actually have up to 60 percent alcohol; while champagne contains only 14 percent. Meanwhile, skincare products actually use alcohol that our bodies can’t break down. Continue reading →
Admit it, ladies. You know you’ve done it: sneaking into your man’s bathroom cabinet to get an inside look as to who he is, what he may be hiding, and where you can sneak in your own things. Well, why not squeeze in something you both can share? Isotonix Champion Blend Plus is the cutting-edge new vitamin created by Carmelo Anthony.

As if surviving middle school wasn’t painful enough, getting embarrassing breakouts definitely added on some throbbing discomfort. I confess I used to have a bit of a breakdown from just a few breakouts. My pimple panic attacks would start like any young teen, and then finally ended with me patiently waiting to see my dermatologist, Dr. Tom, just to get a shot of cortisone into the blemish.
Needle-less to say, I learned at a young age beauty is pain.
Years ago, I loved when a new prescription cream or lotion produced a burning or tingling sensation, then I knew (or at least thought) it was working. I guess I never really grew out of that bizarre belief and behavior…
That eventually led me to my recent acupuncture adventure. Acupuncture has been used to help cure PMS, fatigue, insomnia, asthma, allergies, and infertility, as well as restore energy flow and relieve chronic pain in the back, head, or abdomen. I have always been a light sleeper, but have had difficulty sleeping and staying asleep now more than ever. I wanted to try acupuncture hoping that it would help my insomnia. Although I feel like I have had deeper more restful sleep these past few days, I am still a little skeptical.
