Weight Loss Hypnosis Reviews: BodyMind CD

Monday, February 13th, 2012

autosuggestion weight loss

With a particularly open mind, I agreed to listen to the BodyMind Weight Loss Hypnosis Mp3 (3 parts) and then share my thoughts. What is their claim? That through autosuggestion techniques, they can basically hypnotize you into losing weight. That’s a huge claim! I mean, man.

Note: You do not have to be as thin as the image above. This is just the one the site uses. I believe in making positive choices to be active and to eat healthy.

Of course, even the most skeptical has to agree that autosuggestion aka hypnosis is an actual psychological technique that has worked. And our subconscious mind truly is receptive to suggestions while we sleep. When I nap on my couch my dreams incorporate items from whatever was on the TV both before I fell asleep and also while I was asleep. And that can be funny, depending on what you’re watching.

So, weight loss hypnosis sounds like it’s crazy, but it really does have some merit. ... Read More

    Best Sugar Free Desserts: Chocolate Box of Lurve

    Friday, February 3rd, 2012

    best sugar free desserts

    It may be with a groan that you decide to limit your sugar intake, and I’m right there with you. Luckily there are really healthy and beautiful some role models (with rockin’ bodies of course – think: Yvonne Strahovski) and enough qualified doctor-y people on TV reminding me how bad sugar is that I’ve been making a slow decline in (real) sugar consumption. So, I decided that I would try sugar free chocolate. And that’s when I came to the Illinois Nut and Fantasia Chocolate Company. Surprisingly, they make all sorts of sugar free candy (taffy, truffles, gummi’s), including sugar free chocolate. Since I often hate cooking, pre-packaged stuff is right up my alley as the best sugar free desserts around.

    Side Note – Celebrities Who Don’t Eat Sugar:
  • Selma Blair (nor gluten)
  • Gwyneth Paltrow
  • Kelly Osbourne
  • Yvonne Strahovski (though she had a birthday at the Sugar Factory)
  • Jessica Biel (while working)
  • Jewel
  • Leaving sugar behind is sad, so opt for high ... Read More

    I’m Shopping for Curtains like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Pottery Barn…but for Less.

    Monday, January 23rd, 2012

    curtains like pottery barn

    Yesterday I stood in a Home Depot and found two things I wanted to buy. First off, orchids! They sell orchids in cute pots. The reason I didn’t walk away with an orchid is because it would be a waste of $10.00 for me, as I don’t have enough indoor light to keep it alive. And even though I don’t get a ton of direct sun, I really want new window treatments. And that’s why the other section of Home Depot that had me pause was this little curtain part. They were affordable but … they were by Martha Stewart. And I kept thinking about how I don’t really like Martha Stewart and if I bought her curtains these would be the same curtains a million yuppie couples have hanging in their houses. And, I’m not  THAT boring.

    As I walked away, debating this one curtain, I kept thinking bout how I’d always know the vibe of the curtains were Martha Stewart, and I’d feel hopelessly lame for it. Because what I want is something … kind of hip. I’m still young! What I want is curtains like an Anthropologie. They can even be from Anthropologie – but only if they’re on sale. I’m also interested in World Market, Pottery Barn, West Elm (although that’s a bit too modern) and Pier 1. Or anywhere if they look nice, really. But, I suck at making decisions. So I’ve come to you guys for help.

    We’re looking for curtains like urban outfitters – curtains like pottery barn – curtains like anthropologie.

    Creative Dresser Ideas: Copy these Stenciled Designs

    Friday, January 6th, 2012

    creative dresser ideas 1

    To create a truly creative dresser try implementing a version of this design to one of your own pieces.

    Shown is the “Nine Drawer Chest” by RSH Catalog. Constructed of dark mahogany, you’d never guess it. “Awash in blue and cream, the artwork is a rendition of an ornate Louis XVI dresser. Ball feet complete the look.”

    I think this is kind of a shabby chic look without being too dated as a Martha Stewart kind of deal. It almost looks like it was limed, in fact. I love that it’s transformed into a really playful, sweet piece of furniture by having the Louis XVI dresser painted on the bulky dresser. I have no clue why (and this will sound a bit weird), but it reminds me of the feelings (of magic and beauty!) that I get when I think of The Nutcracker.

    You can find the page with this piece of furniture here. However, the price is well over $1,000. So how could you practically achieve a similar look?

    Creative Dresser Ideas

    1. Take an old dresser and paint the entire thing in a pale wash of blue. You can experiment with paint techniques to give it an aged look, like the sponge off or rag off way. Then use stencils of something sweet like birds in ... Read More

    Evil Queen Dress Inspiration from Cherie Sposa

    Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

    evil queen fancy dress costume

    Fairytales are everywhere, so it’s no longer I saw so much major inspiration from the Cherie Sposa 2012 Evening Collection. I saw the perfect innocent princess dress, and also the perfect evil queen dress. Check it out and tell me I’m wrong!

    The black. The ruffles. The tulle layering. The plunging v neck. The sculpting. The sheerness. THE EVERYTHING OF IT! If you wore that you’d strut around and feel powerful and maybe a little bit wicked. Can’t you see just about any evil queen in a fairytale wearing this dress? Like Lana Parrilla on Once Upon a Time, for instance?

    Cherie Sposa Website: Here

    And do you want princess dresses for women? Well, I think this particular one is beyond perfect. I could see it in a fabulous movie. These would obviously make for really stylish dresses or stylish ... Read More
