Perfect Lips

1. First make sure your lips are dry and free of any product

 2. Then apply your carmex as a moisturizing base soft vanilla flavor

Apply your lipliner to outline your lips (Don’t know how to apply lip liner or find the right shade?)

3. Then apply your lipstick inside the lines to create a non drying and long lasting lip

Blot and your ready to go!

You never know who you’re going to run into when you’re shopping for your next big look. (Warby Parker Lexington Avenue Store)

have you seen Draya Michelle, BBW LA star, wears Marbelle?

Although I wouldn’t personalaly wear this (I don’t like to show off my stomach) I think it would be perfect with a statement clutch and bright heels




Have you ever gone to Cedar Point or would like to But don’t know if it will accommodate your Allergies?

last week I went to Cedar Point for Bloggy Con.

I had planned on eating at the hotel and surviving on salad and chicken when I was out (like I always do) and that’s what I did. The Restaurant  café (Perkins) has surprisingly wonderful salmon.

On Sunday I was notified that Joe Cool Café served gluten free pizza!

 I had high hopes for it and it did not disappoint!

The crust was delicious and the pizza was big enough to feed three.

I will defiantly be going back to  Joe Cool Café

Birthday Express

Your inspiration could be as simple as a little girl’s birthday party or as complex as a wine tasting, but whichever the affair, setting your table with Paris chic elevates any party into a soiree.

Set against a backdrop of classic black, playful polka dots and pretty pink details, the Paris Damask party theme from Birthday Express brings elegance and sophistication to the table, with a delightful European twist.

Birthday Express

Food & Drink Ideas – Pink lemonade becomes instantly chic when poured into plastic champagne flutes tied with curling ribbon. Match your cupcakes to the decor with the Paris Damask Cupcake Wrapper Combo Kit which looks great when displayed on a pedestal lined with black and white Sixlets. A cookie decorating station will delight budding little French chefs.

Party Activities – Drape pink toile and feather boas about and then turn the accoutrements into an activity where little ladies dress up and pose for pictures as they walk down a faux Paris runway.

Birthday Express

Party Decor – There are endless ways to bring flair to the table with all of the pieces in this Paris Damask collection, including Eiffel Tower centerpieces and damask decorated partyware.

Want to Switch up your style without buying a million cheap cases?

With this simple hack you can change up your style endless times without loosing the protection of your case




Choose a picture from your phone photo library (you can use one from your desktop but I have found that it’s the perfect size) and print it




Take the clear back of the case, place it on the picture and trace around it




Take the clear back off and cut the shape out, making sure to cut out the space for the camera


Take the cut out piece and place it on your phone, place the clear back over it and snap the colored bumper on



This can be changed whenever you want to mix up your style!


Rock your case!

I am sharing the following PSA on behalf of Bloggin’ Mamas, who is working with Element Associates, the Ad Council and Get Covered America to raise awareness about the Health Insurance Marketplace and the financial assistance available. #GetCovered #TakeCareChat September 3rd, 2014 at 1pm EST More than half of all uninsured Americans can get covered for under $100 a month. And 4 in 5 people, who have already signed up, got help paying for their insurance.  The uninsured are exposed to significant financial risk from medical issues, accidents or emergencies. Even young and healthy individuals are at-risk. One trip to the emergency room for a broken arm or a bad ear infection could cost thousands of dollars. Open enrollment is set to begin again in the fall, but special enrollment is ongoing.  As with other elements of the health care law, many of those eligible for coverage don’t understand all the details. While the Health Insurance Marketplaces don’t open until November 15th, certain “qualifying life events” (like getting married, having a baby, adopting a child, moving, losing your current health insurance, losing insurance when you turn 26 if you were covered under a parent’s healthcare plan, losing insurance after graduation if you were covered under your college’s healthcare plan,  and more) could allow you to get covered now. For more info and resources, please refer to the Get Covered America website:
