Celeb Pick of the Week-Demi Lovato

image

Singer Demi Lovato looked very chíc in a black and white crochet scalloped shorts outfit by Sister Jane in New York this past  Thursday for the Today Show. I love that she added a pair of  white stilettos for extra height and her all black bag by Saint Laurent was perfect in completing her look. Did you hear…Demi and Nick Jonas are starting their own record label! This 22 year old has definetly proven she is all about the business!

Yellow Dress: Deal of the Day!

I absolutely love my new dress from H&M and it was definitely a steal of a deal! I ventured out and got this little number on Memorial Day for only $12.95! I started to get another print and changed my mind to get a few other pieces, however I am just loving the fit (and all the compliments I received aren’t bad either)!  Lol. 

By the way, I did get a size larger to accommodate the growing belly which is always key if you want to avoid maternity clothes and want to wear after pregnancy. The only thing, I think I may have to go back and get that other print!  What do you think?

P. S. Sorry, don’t know what’s going on with my camera, but almost all my picts came out either blurry or with a glare.

3pm Memorial Day Rememberance

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!  To those who lost their lives, the vets,  the family and friends who serve proudly, thank you for your sacrifice! After reading an article in Forbes, I had to share about some of the ways the nation will choose to honor those who served in the war on today.

The National Moment of Remembrance Act calls us to stop and have a moment of silence. As noted by the Uniformed Services Benefit Association, here is what is suppose to happen, trains will blow their whistles, about 500,000 Major League Baseball fans will pause for a moment of silence, cars will drive with their headlights on. Americans everywhere will wave flags, and “Taps” will play throughout the nation.

However way you choose to honor, do it in love and take nothing or no one for granted!

Stay on the Journey

As always, we received a great word in church.  Today,  it was from one of our elders and it was about not quitting and going for what God has for you. Also, if we are not careful to use the talents we are given, they can be taken away.

We all have giftings and talents that God has called us to. However,  most of us either don’t know what they are or do  not operate in them fully. Think about what things interest and drive you. From there, think about how you can get to the next level and acheive the ultimate success.

At times when things are not working out,  we feel discouraged and want to give up.  However, it is important to never give up what you believe in and continue to stay motivate.  You have to learn to encourage yourself even when others don’t.  You have to constantly be working on you and increase your faith.

Lastly,  don’t be concerned with anyone else, but you. We all have the same opportunity to become successful. Just learn how to be greater than you were the day before. Stay on your journey and run a good race!

Late Night Beauty Tips

When I find out something new, I love sharing it with others. Here are few of my latest picks, I hope you find them helpful!

1) Did you know that sleeping on your side and stomach can actually cause “bags” under your eyes?  When you are sleep, it’s been said that fluid runs to and collects in the area. Instead, try sleeping on your back or sleeping with extra pillows to lay your head at an angle.

2) Should you have “bags” or puffiness under the eyes, put 2 spoons in the freezer for a few minutes and glide them under each eye to drain fluid and also reduce puffiness.

3) Dry skin?  Use a humidifier to help draw in moisture while you sleep!

4) Coconut oil has many uses and one of them is moisturizing your lips overnight!

5) Exfoliate your lips by using your toothbrush each night after brushing your teeth.

6) When getting rid of blackheads, mash a tomato and run over affected area and let the juice sit over night. Because of the antiseptic properties in the tomato, they are effective in de-clogging your pores.

Pretty in Prints

This has got to be one of my favorite blouses from BCBG that I own. Blue is not a color that wear often, but the fuchsia pink combo was a must have to match my shoes! 🙂 I also liked the fun animal print and believe that prints are great for turning any outfit from “ok” to “wow!” Now that I’m preggers, I definitely need to go shopping, especially for some summer pieces. Stay tuned for more looks with the bump!
