Summer Cocktail Inspired Outfits

Hi my Lovelies!

What can be better than a Nice Refreshing Summer cocktail enjoyed on the beach? Why not get inspired by these girly cocktail drinks by creating a fun and chic Summer outfit? Here’s one to get you started:

Lets start with the Drink- Watermelon-Tequila Cocktails

Ingredients:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon (1 pound)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/4 cups silver tequila
Ice
How to:
1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a simmer with the sugar and stir over moderate heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute; let the sugar syrup cool.
2. In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and strain the watermelon juice, pressing gently on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the pulp.
3. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the lime juice, blueberries and mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, lightly muddle the blueberries and mint. Add the watermelon juice and tequila. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
4. Pour the cocktail into tall ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the mint sprigs and serve

Summer Picnic Fashion

Hi my Lovelies!

Summer is Officially (un-officially) here, which means bring on the Picnic parties. Ever not sure what to wear or bring with you to that picnic party ? Whether it’s a summer BBQ at the Park with a few friends or a picnic at the Lake or Beach, don’t forget these essentials!

Pair of Sunglasses and a cute Hatgirlwearinghat

You don’t want to be the person squinting to see your food or at your friend when she’s talking to you about her latest boyfriend break-up do you? Having a nice pair of shades and a Hat will also protect your beautiful skin from Skin Cancer. Try a trendy Fedora hat or a wide sun-brim hat, paired with your favorite shades. Designer or Not Designer, any will do the trick. Try this hat from Sierra Trading Post.

Sunscreen!

Unless you want to leave the picnic looking like a lobster, you might want to slap on some Sunscreen, at least 45 SPF. Try Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Sunscreen SPF 50+. Wearing Sunscreen also protects your skin from not only skin cancer, but from those ugly aging spots. Be careful of the “cheap” brands of sunscreen also, they can have more chemicals than actually good ingredients to protect your skin.

Picnic Style Prints

If you’re going to a 4th of July Picnic, you probably want to take the opportunity to wear some Red, White and Blue colors. The plaid look just screams Patriotic, don’t you think?
Just don’t overdo the plaid, one plaid piece per outfit, either a skirt or a plaid top paired with a pair of jeans will suffice.

Yoga is a wonderful activity that we ALL need. Yes, ALL of us, including the Males! Yoga helps us relax our mind, body and soul and feel at ease in the moment. Some days I just don’t feel like like “working out”, but I still try and find a Yoga Class to attend. After attending yoga I feel energized and refreshed and ready to take on the world! There’s just something so powerful about Yoga.

And no, I’m not a rubber band that you twist and bend in all sorts of directions. There’s no need to do that with yoga anyway.

When we are stressed we tend not to eat as healthy as we should be eating, our diets start to slack, our exercise goes out the window; when Ironically you should be exercising when you’re stressed. However, not only will Stress cause health-related problems like heart conditions and other sicknesses and diseases; stress will also damage your hair.

Our hair needs nutrients, which we get from the foods we eat. If we aren’t putting the right foods in our body, our hair will suffer. If you lose more than your 100 strands a day, you should consult your Doctor. Your Doctor will probably tell you that you need more B12, Zinc, and Iron in your diet.

You can also try to treat it topically by using thickening shampoos, like FIXX thick-hair shampoo for example. If you want to add even more Volume, you can try one of our Fabulous 100% Remy Clip-On Hair Extensions.

Stress can also cause you to get Grey hairs, ever notice how the President of the United States always leaves office with more grey hairs than when he came in office; stress.

Unfortunately, there is no “cure” to get rid of Grey, all you can do is Cover it. You can try using Permanent colors, which can have harmful side effects to your hair; depending on which Color you choose.

Do you need an Afternoon pick me up?

With our busy schedules, it’s not un-common for most Adults to grab that Afternoon coffee, 5 hour energy drink or sugary snacks to get us through the day. Then you crash 10 minutes after you have it…doesn’t seem like a good option. Not only do these energy products/coffee drinks have too much calories, sugar; the cost can add up quickly! There is a better  and cheaper way! It’s called Awake Energy Shots! They’re delicious!
