Got Plank?

/ Posted on June 13th, 2011

Alright, I have decided to explain the planking to everyone because frankly, I am tired of everyone asking! :)

“Plank” refers to the yoga position, to be stiff as a board, working the ab muscles

There really isn’t some cool story to tell.  One day I was on Facebook. My friend Havilah was posting pictures of herself planking at work.  I was really intrigued on how awkward this was to do in public.  Me, being the awkward person that I am, was hooked!  I wanted to try it out for myself.  So, a few friends and I started planking and tagging Havilah so she could see us planking. Little did I know, It was a worldwide phenomenon!  After doing much research, I saw that a guy died in Australia… from planking.  Now, before you start sending me more emails about how I am going to die, I just want to let everyone know that I will not become a “dare-devil planker”  I just like to be “weird & awkward planker”  Savvy? 

So, there you have it!  My boring planking story!

I have attached a few of my favorite planks that I have achieved!

For those of you who are confused/irritated by the planking… LIGHTEN UP!!

I have been on a “mascara” hunt for quite some time now. I literally have tried EVERYTHING! Thank you to everyone for the help and suggestions!

I am dedicating this blog to the best and worst mascara’s. If you do NOT care about mascara, you will no longer be needed here :)

WORST!

CoverGirl – Lash Blast $7.99
this is the MOST flaky, sticky mascara ever. My eyelash curler got stuck to my lashes everytime I used it. Flaked on my face all day! sorry Drew Barrymore, but I am not a fan

M.A.C.- Plush Lash $14.00
Nope, nope and nope! this mascara is so sticky and made my lashes very brittle. I love MAC but not their mascara’s

Maybelline – Great Lash $5.00
Honestly, I don’t see what is so great about this mascara. My lashes didn’t look longer and thicker. just darker. So, I wasn’t too impressed

BEST!

Fresh – SuperNova $25.00
This mascara is tar free and alcohol free, so my lashes were not sticky or flaky. Also it has a conditioning oil that helps your lashes.. YES!!

Almay – Get up and Grow $8.00
I was hesitant with this BUT I am surprised! It wasn’t flaky or sticky and has natural conditioners to help promote lash health/growth. LOVE THIS ONE

DiorShow – BlackOut $30.00
I was a big fan of this mascara, the only downside to this – it dries out pretty quickly. If you don’t like spending $30 on a mascara then I would suggest you grab Benefit – Bad Gal Lash. It literally is the EXACT SAME THING for $19

I hope this helps anyone out there struggling with mascara’s. Also, if there is a mascara I did not name that kick’s ass, please let me know.  I am sure I will try it :)

I know the Secret!

/ Posted on March 30th, 2011

Haven’t we all wanted “the perfect bra?”

Well , I found it!  Victoria’s Secret has a bra called “Body by Victoria – Racerback Demi”

Its  HEAVEN on my boobies :)  It has MemoryFit, which basically means memory foam. It forms to the bosom and its soft. There is very little padding (which is awesome) and ITS RACER-BACKED!!!  I don’t know about you gals, but I HATE having to criss-cross my straps or find that tiny, little annoying hook on the strap to racerback the bra.  This is already racer-backed! I wear alot of tanks and I hate when my bra straps show.

Let me just tell you why I am blogging about a bra!  This bra, yet functional and comfortable.. also makes my boobs look like a vanilla sundae! They kick ass in this bra!  I have never been more happy with a bra. To add the cherry on top, its only $45.00. I bought one in buff and black!  

Give me some advice on better bras if you all have one that you think is better than this one.. I’m pretty hooked — get it.. Bra.. hooked?  nevermind haha!

Viva la Boobies

Addicted!

/ Posted on February 4th, 2011

We all have shopped at Whole Foods Market right?!   Well, its my addiction!

Have any of you had that moment, where you need 1-2 items from Whole Foods and you leave with 10-15 items? I am that gal.  I go in to Whole Foods with a list, a mission , a purpose.  As soon as I walk inside I get SUCKED IN.  The fresh fruit, veggies, cheeses, healthy EVERYTHING, Kombucha,  deli and bulk items. They also have a really cool “dog/cat’ aisle.

I was sitting here bored and just curious if anyone else out there had the same problem.  I get consumed with weird things – like the “all natural and organic” terms.

Also, if you buy your vitamins or herbs at Whole Foods, they have a “Whole Body Value Card.”  When you buy 10 supplements / body care items, you can receive $10.00 off on the 11th item.

I need some Whole Foods addict stories… Do tell. Don’t make me feel alone. :)

Shatter, Crackle and Pop!

/ Posted on January 25th, 2011

As you all have seen (I’m sure) the new OPI Katy Perry “shatter” nail polish!  They just arrived in stores (Ulta, Sephora, etc.) and are selling like hot cakes.

There are 4 main colors and then the “shatter” black cracked nail polish that goes on top!

Don’t worry, if you get to these stores and they are sold out (which most of them are) you can hop onto Ebay or Amazon and grab the original crackle nail polish created by Mia Secret for a fraction of the price!

The great thing about Mia Secret Crackle is their assortment of crackle colors. OPI only offers black! Covergirl also offered a selection of colors, but good luck finding those, since they came out 10 years ago!
