Your new secret weapon for healthy snacking ideas is Nuts.com.
Let’s talk about nuts. I’m nuts, which is probably one of my better qualities. But there’s also Nuts.com. And before you go thinking it’s such a simple-sounding website that it might not even be real… let me fix that thought for you. The site name is simple, but they have branded themselves as an incredibly fun destination to buy ALL SORTS of things. From the pretty blue and orange re-sealable packages to the box (with cartoon drawings) that the items arrive in, everything about the process is fun.
I got to sample 3 items from Nuts.com. I do recommend ordering from this website, but I would only re-order one of the below items.
Dried Fruit Chips Review – These offered several varieties of fruit but I’ll be honest, I could really only taste banana and then “other” which was a sweet mix (which was apples, pineapple, etc.) I loved this, though. It was very healthy and had a great crunch. My only comment against it would be that there was too many banana chips. It’s great for healthy snacking ideas. The packaging was not just cute, but super functional to keep everything fresh! ... Read More
These “Hair Portraits” by Maria Gil Ulldemolins are drawn images of hairstyles that I couldn’t wait to share with you guys. I literally had them saved on my computer for a week (which is a bit typical for me, argh) and I kept seeing them in thumbnail version.
I used to sketch hairstyles out, but never with such elegance. I love that the focus is all on the back and it really shows you how certain hairstyles are put together. While I don’t think these were meant to be instructive, they still are.
Now THIS is intricate… oh boy. From the back of her head I think she seems like a very nice person, maybe a British gal who knits and drinks mint chocolate tea.
Here I immediately think of a Scandinavian woman who is a bit of a punk.

If you’re looking for the best kettle corn brand around, it happens to be (amazingly enough) also the brand that makes the best caramel corn popcorn. They’re both by G.H. Cretors!
I recently had a chance to taste different varieties of G.H. Cretors Popcorn. The Caramel Corn and Caramel Nut Crunch were so good. Not only did I think it was the best I’d ever had, so did my Dad. And he’s not easily impressed. When it came to the Kettle Corn, I found it super sweet and the corn (like for all mixes) is perfectly and fully round and popped.
Oddly, I just didn’t like the cheese corn mix (and therefore I was not a big fan of the Chicago Mix that has the cheese and caramel corn together.) So, I cannot personally recommend that. But I typically only like white cheddar popcorn, anyway. And this was more of a heavy cheddar, I think.
Now that I’ve already told you all about how great some of these flavors are, it’s time to tell you even more about the popcorn. This is all natur ... Read More

When it comes to stylish ipad (2) cases for women, you definitely might find yourself looking at the ones at Hang Accessories. And while I cannot recommend them, I can tell you my reasons for hesitance and you might still like them. (I also provided some pictures of soem very stylish rolling laptop bags you might like to see.)
I received the Rose Gold Skin iPad 2 Case to review. They also offer this case in a Brown Gold, Black, Black Gold, Purple and Turquoise. The cases all have textured snakeskin on them, which is quite posh. Aside from the look of the case, I also liked that the magnetic closure turns off my iPad instantly, and that there is a way to use the cover as a stand. (It says there are two angles that it folds open to, but I could only figure out one. I’d say you could use it to watch Netflix, but if you were going to be touching the screen it might slide a bit.)
My biggest issue with the case is that the inside cover doesn’t have any padding, and presses the snakeskin pattern against the iPad screen. Now, many cases don’t have inside padding. But I’m a bit of a worrywort, and my iPad is my b ... Read More
If you want to accomplish something, you must first expect it of yourself. Believe you can do it. It’s mind over matter. This is the first, biggest, and most important step.
I was inspired to this by listening to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer speak. He’s a Christian. And he has a book with a terrific title – Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting (AMAZON.)
Here is a brief snapshot of the book:
This book is dedicated to your mastery of the art of realizing all your desires. The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of your imagination. Everything that now exists was once imagined. And everything that will ever exist must first be imag ... Read More
Here are two fool-proof outfit ideas for spring 2012. Just try not to go overboard on buying great Butter nail polishes (because it can happen, and it’s…well, no, it’s not tragic at all, actually. They are AMAZING.)
This first outfit utilizes a long printed maxi dress that you probably already own from last summer. Then you take a cropped jacket, and pile on a large gold statement necklace for the entire downtown-city-boho-chic look! And I included a Butter nail polish in this fabulous dark turquoise because I love Butter nail polish colors. TV characters that might wear this include: Emily Fields from Pretty Little Liars when dressing up for a date (see: How to dress like Emily Fields), Alex from Happy Endings (see: How to dress like Alex Happy Endings Fashion) or Cece from New Girl (Cece New Girl fashion.)

You know your Pretty Little Liars always love to dress up for a great dance. Let’s look at what we’d put them in, using selections from promgirl.net.
The reason why we’re focusing on prom dresses from that site is because we now know how great they are. We had a chance to review this cocktail dress by Clarisse. It comes in white, light pink (coral), or blue. We choose the pink, as it’s perfect for a short, Spring dress. It’s a sale dress, and they have a price match guarantee – which is so nice. It’s such a nice dress because there’s a bit of texture without there being any print. Which means you can pair this with bold accessories. Silhouette wise, this is short and body-conscious. Luckily, there’s a nice lining for the pretty pink dress. The rhinestone pin is removable, so you can use it or not. The dress arrived right on time (fast!), and packaged in plastic and on a hanger. All in all, we are very pleased with our interaction with promgirl.net and would order a dress there again. Their swiftness of service really can’t be beat. And, as we’ve pro ... Read More
Elegance, vintage, and romance. Enjoy these lovely bedrooms! Large images.
Note the gorgeous skeleton key art above the bed.
This soft blue with the cream is amazing.
Our favorite brand with the peaceful dove as a logo has a new product called Dove® Clear Tone Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant. It was created for women to even out skin tone and reduce any dark or red marks on their underarms. It does this with the help of Calendula, Sunflower seed extracts, and unique Dove® moisturizers that help aid your body with its built-in natural skin renewal process.
I wasn’t sure that this was an issue for a lot of people until I went a a’googling around. Apparently plenty of people search for “underarms dark,” and “underarms dark home remedies.” But you don’t need a home remedy when you have something that will work. And don’t be embarrassed to admit you have any discoloration under your arms, because it can happen from wearing a tight top or a sleeveless shirt where your skin touches itself and has friction.
The clincher: And really, much as we want it smooth, we want it to look good if we’re gonna wear a tank top!Dove Clear Tone Review
My underarms aren’t too dark, but I do deal with this issue in a spot on my face and it drives me CRAZY. Seriously, crazy! And I also crazy moisturize that area all the time. I thi ... Read More
