How to Treat your Lips during Warm Weather seasons


With the Warmer weather we all love, comes the dread of dehydrated lips. One way to combat this is to make sure you are drinking enough water. Of course for some of us, we still get that dry lip and want to spruce up our lips a bit with some Gloss..yet we don’t want the smudge from the humidity to happen. Here are a few tips to help your Lips stay hydrated and sexy this summer:


Use a Lip-Stain

If you want that “just-bitten” look, try using a lip stain. This is perfect for those water park , beach or pool-side party days. A lip stain won’t smudge or melt off, which is ideal for the warmer weather; especially when you’ll be outside. Try Revlon’s Just-Bitten Lip Stain +Balm

Lip Balm

Going natural is always ideally sexy during summer, and looks effortless! The best way to achieve this would be using a lip balm that has no color or to use one to play up your natural lip color, with a slight hue. A great balm should give you a great soft, kissable pout without the effort. Try this colorless hydrating lip balm by Motives or this Lip Shimmer in Apricot by Burt’s Bees.

Lip Gloss

For a sexy-laid back look, a girl can never go wrong with a little gloss at the beach or pool. For a sexy-glossed look Try Motives Mineral Lip Shine in Scandal (now doesn’t that just sound sexy?) Or for more of a flirty look, Try L’ancome’s Juicy Tubes-Ultra Glossy in Berry Bold.

Bright Lipstick

If you’re a classic lipstick girl, a great way to brighten your summer look up, is with a Bright lipstick. Of course, before you even think about smacking that Lip Color on, make sure your lips are prepped and smooth; think of it as a primer for your lips. Try using this Vitamin E Lip Treatment by Motives. I absolutely love this one!!! Then follow it up with a bright orange or color lip color, the hottest trends for summer! Use your favorite stick or Try this Mineral Lipstick in Orange Coral.

A New way to Buy and Sell Fashion


Recently, I came across this awesome new site called Poshmark. 

Basically, it’s a site for Ladies to Sell that gently-worn dress in the back of their closet and buy some other Woman’s gently worn dress. (Or you can just keep the profit) It’s kinda like eBay, except its only for Women’s Fashion and Accessories. There are also Posh Parties to buy and sell from multiple women live. It’s a like a live tweet marketplace.

Poshmark also takes care of the shipping for you, when you sell an item, the email you a pre-paid USPS postage stamp (included in the selling price), Just print, pack in a box and leave in a blue USPS mailbox. Then wait for your money to arrive straight to your bank account!

To me Poshmark sounds like a fun Instagram-esqe shopping platform for Women. Why just throw that old piece of clothing (that’s still wearable) to Goodwill, when you can make some money. You paid good dollars for your clothes, get some of it back!

Having Stress is common among most Adults these days. Some of the Causes of Stress are due to Workload, job security, Money and Time.

Studies also show that 85% of the stuff that we worry about actually never happens, and an additional 80% of us say that when the worst does happen, we handle it better than we thought we would. So stop the Stressing, go out and enjoy the Fresh air, talk to a friend, listen to music, have a good laugh. These things are said to help you feel less stressed and people who do these things live longer happier lives.

Chocolate Chip Cookies..that are Gluten and Almost Sugar free


A friend of mine shared this recipe with me and it sounded delicious! Here it is:

Ingredients: 2 eggs, 2 scoops TLS vanilla protein powder, 1/2 cup organic peanut Butter, 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 tsp baking soda, chocolate chips if you wish

Steps:  Form into cookie shape then add chocolate chips on top if you wish

Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

These are not sweet so you can add 1/2 cup applesauce if you want them sweeter

I love them because it’s guilt free snacking! Full if protein and fiber with the TLS powder. It has 10 grams of fiber per serving!
