Citrus Bling

I am so happy that it's beginning to feel like spring. And to celebrate these warmer temps, I've gone bright with my nail color. I'm loving my orange nails and Swarovski stones which add great bling. Since purple is my favorite color, I thought 'why not?' If you live in the New Orleans area or plan to visit soon, contact me and I'll be glad to give you my nail tech's info.

Hot Buns

Summer is quickly approaching which means skin, skin, and more skin! So now is the time, if you haven't started already, to get those glutes together for a perfect fit in those shorts. Trust me, adding squats and lunges to your workout routine will do the trick. I have a stronger lower body so I use relatively heavy weight. However, if you're just starting out, be sure to pace yourself. Low weights and high reps are a good start. Go for it!

One Haute LBD

I had my eye on this black maxi dress for months, but at the time, there weren't any in my size. Once I discovered that they'd restocked, I placed my order immediately. I was quite pleased with my purchase. Initially I was concerned that the material would be too thin and because of the design, anything worn underneath would show. However, my husband and I went out one weekend and the dress worked out perfectly. Not sure what the outcome would be in a well-lit setting, but I was happy to successfully pull off the look.

Good Morning

Hello all. I know that I've neglected my blog for about a month now, but in back. Hopefully I was missed :)
Thanks to Mardi Gras, I'll be home on vacation for a week (no complaints either). Since I'll have much more free time, eating healthy is an absolute must. Check out how I'm starting my day off.

Go Greek

It's the new year and I'm sure many of you have dedicated yourselves to a new fitness regime.  Good choice because healthy is sexy!

My workout routine involves plenty weightlifting. So I try to incorporate plenty protein into my diet to encourage muscle health and development. I know that there are claims that yogurt has plenty benefits for us ladies, but the perks go beyond that. Check out this Greek yogurt. It's low on calories and sugar, plus it's packing 12g of protein. Oh and it's tasty too. Be sure to read the labels if you decide to purchase because different flavors will have varying amounts of sugar and protein.

911 Beauty Kit

911 Beauty Kit
Considering that I am pretty much always in a rush, I am bound to forget something.  Even if you are a very punctual and organized person, beauty emergencies still tend to arise without warning. Therefore, an emergency beauty kit will definitely come in handy.  I have compiled a collection of 10 items that I feel are sure to come to your rescue.   
  1. Deodorant, for those days that you slip on that black top and forget to apply afterward. 
  2. A mint, to keep your breath minty fresh. 
  3. Tylenol for a sudden headache or those awful cramps. 
  4. An electric shaver for those unexpected visits to happy hour and you're afraid to take off your sweater because your top is sleeveless and you've got some stubble (the drama).
  5. Well, a lint roller for obvious reasons.
  6. Bobby pins to combat the effects of humidity or to spice up your hairdo for a dinner date.
  7. Sewing kits are a must.
  8. Red nail polish because it's sophisticated and bold enough to cover up chipped polish in most shades.
  9. Lotion in a vanilla scent so it won't clash with any other fragrance you may be wearing. 
  10. And finally a mirror so that you can admire your beauty. :)

Pack these items into a cute travel bag and store them in your car or somewhere at the office.

Style Crave of the Day

My Style Crave

It's Wednesday and I'm craving this Steve Madden Reactor heel in Black Leather.

As you may know by now, I am a Steve Madden fan.  Great designs at reasonable prices.  The studded detail on the heel adds some edge to the shoe, which is a turn on for me.  It also comes in a nice blush leather.  I need to add these to my closet soon.
