A Guide to Healthy Living


The more weightloss related Blogs you read, the phrase “Healthy Living” comes up a lot , and I admit I use it a lot too. Just what does it actually mean though to live a healthy life? Here are some tips on living a healthy life. Ready?

Make a To-Do List

Before you go to sleep, make a To-do list for the next day. (This is something I myself need to get in a habit of), but it has been studied that Healthy and Successful People make To-do lists and stick to them. The best time to make this list is at the end of the day when you are winding down and getting ready for sleep. It helps your refresh, and also helps you wake up in morning. Since you’ll have something to look forward to.

Make sure you schedule some Exercise in.

If you schedule your exercise, you are more likely to do it, rather than if you say “if I’m not too tired”. Instead, schedule it in the morning  before you head to the office. Get up an hour early if you have to. Haven’t exercise in a while? Start slow, by going for a walk. Not a morning person? Go with your kids and/or significant other after work/school. A Family that Exercises together, stays together!! 😉

Plan your meals Ahead of time

To eat Healthy throughout the day (especially during the work hours), plan your meals, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients at home to avoid eating out. If you do have to eat out or have that splurge,make sure eat healthy, use these Tips on eating Healthy at Restaurants. Eat lots of Fruit and Vegetables 

Go Shopping on either Sunday or Monday (if your schedule allows)

On Monday, the food at the grocery store is the freshest, so if you can make it to the store on a Monday, go shopping on Monday, if not go on Sunday to stock up for the week. Don’t buy too much food that will spoil.

Limit the Soda and other Sugary Drinks

Soda has way too many empty calories in it that is so bad for you on so many levels. By just eliminating Soda from your diet you can drop tons of pounds (if you’re a regular Soda drinker). Soda is high in Sugar, chemicals and causes tooth decay. Just stay away from Soda. Instead, drink Seltzer water flavored with fruit or Iced tea that is unsweetened. One cup of coffee a day is okay as well (just go easy on the sugar)

Keep a Journal

If you are trying to lose weight, keeping a journal will help you attain your goals. Also, share with a friend or a coach that guides you will also help you achieve your Weightloss goals.

Why I’m so getting a Wrap Dress

Some days you just have those mornings when you have nothing wear and nothing looks good on you. Do you ever feel like you have hundreds of clothes and nothing matches? This is where the Wrap Dress comes in handy for Every Girl! Read on for why you must pick one up next time you’re out shopping!

Every girl has those days when they just don’t feel “sexy” and have those “go-to” items to enhance her look. For some it may be that pair of sexy skinny jeans that make your long legs look sexy. For other girls it may be that awesome top that enhances her full figured top. Or maybe its that skirt to enhance those sexy legs? Whatever it is, every girl has that go-to piece of clothing. If you don’t have a Wrap dress already, next time you are out shopping, be sure to pick one up!! It is a Must Have for Every Girl!!

Yes, guys every girl has these days believe it or not! After reading about the Wrap Dress on Loren Ridinger’s , I decided that every girl needs a Wrap dress!! Seriously!! Here’s Why.

The Wrap Dress can be styled down with flip-flops or styled up with a pair of some sexy Heels and a nice Necklace, bracelet, maybe some earrings?

Another reason this dress is a must, is its All Season! Never going out of style!!

The Wrap dress can be worn ALL YEAR LONG, since it is very versatile.

Just wear it plain with some sandals in spring or summer.

Slap on a pair of  some tights and a light jacket during Fall and layer with a few extras during winter.








Which dress do you prefer? What do you think of the Wrap Dress?

Do you have a go to item in your closet that’s a must?

How to Make your Perfume Last Forever

Perfume makes us feel pretty, and to be honest it is not a cheap accessory. Most bottles can set you back $150, so keeping your perfume lasting longer should every woman’s must! The horrible part is Perfume is not expensive to make, yet the price tag is high…and the pretty bottle makes it look like there’s even more than there actually is.

Perfume is not a cheap item to buy, yet we have our favorite scents that we must wear, or maybe you got one as a gift. Making that little bottle last longer than its expected shelf life is important for not wasting precious products (and money). Here are a few tips on how to keep your Perfume lasting longer than the 2-3 years shelf life time.



Surprisingly, storing your Perfume with the lid shut tight and in the original box will help your perfume last just a little bit longer

Also, the darker bottles have a tendency to absorb less light therefore the scents will be truer for longer.


Keep your bottles away from any moisture-rich areas like the bathroom . Be wary if you live in humid, ocean or wet climates as your perfume may taper off faster

It is best to keep your perfumes in dark corners and at room temperatures, this will prevent your perfume from losing its scents and lasting longer.

Also, the expensive brands tend to last longer since they are made with better ingredients than the cheap ones. So, save up and buy one good one instead of 10 cheap ones. (This should go for most things you buy)

When in doubt, close the lid and stick it in a corner if you want your perfume to last forever 🙂

What is your favorite scent to wear? I love to wear Chance by Chanel..I know I’m going to use all of these tips to help it last even longer!! 😉
