Well it is already Thursday and it just started to rain…..uggg. I suppose that’s spring for ya. That put’s a damper on my bike ride / walk today that’s for sure… Oh well this gives me the the chance to Edit more of my things here at home. I thought I did a fairly good job before we moved but now it’s – “Out With It!” – this includes makeup, papers and clothes! I am like a machine!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CfWg_794DA – (Note: this doesn’t start quite from the beginning where you do the body twists ) but I tell you what it is my “GO TO” workout for my stomach. Short, sweet & to the point. If you do it 5x’s a weeks you will see results fast really does take 10min. or less…. I hope you try it out.
etc…. ck out the youtube link
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY,
This one Really Works……..
Run your bath water as hot as you like. Add your “ingredients” and agitate to dissolve. Soak for 20-40 minutes – download some nice spa music – light some candles and give yourself some TLC. Be sure to drink a full glass of water when you’re finished. ( I keep glass of water next to me in the bath – as well as a wash cloth that is soaking in an ice bath for my face and head to cool down during my soak if I become over heated )
Warning! You will be exhausted after your bath, so do this right after dinner….
Enjoy -let me know how it works for you!
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY,
So happy to be right ahead of some great trends again….. I have been “gaga” over the new YSL Vernis A Levres Glossy Stain‘s – especially #17(bright lilac) & #18 (cool neutral lilac) and here it is mentioned in the new Instyle Magazine June 2014 issue pg 28. I like to line my lip with a light brown/neutral liner first than apply the stains and go over with more liner on edges to add more impact. I have not tried the #LOrealParis Colour Caresse WetShine Lip Stain yet but will let you know my compassions and reviews. The YSL Stain is a bit pricey @ $35 bucks a pop but loving the color choices and staying power! Have a great day all!
Ok – so you have heard me sing the praises of IKEA for quite sometime now – but this time go round I am struggling. I was able to get items and be in/out in 35min. A record somewhere…. but I can not seem to get motivated to put it all together. I have 4 pieces to make my vanity area etc.. and have only been able to sit and put two things together. This is how the rest has sat now for over a week – close to two! Uggggggg I am not sure what the block is – but I just look at it and run away. Someone send me my “Ikea mojo” back. I really need to do it to finish organizing my dressing / office area but – just not happening. I mean I will do just about anything else. I sit here now writing and its right next to me – mocking me.
Well I ended up making soup on the rainy off & on again day and If I do say so myself It tuned out sooooo good! I made a white bean & cauliflower soup.
So easy – thought I’d share
1/2onion chopped and sauteed
3gloves garlic chopped sauteed (after onion is started & clear)
Add 1/2 head of cauliflower and sauté till lightly browned
crushed red pepper to taste ( I like it spicy )
chicken stock 3cups (homemade or store bought just low sodium no msg etc…)
top with water ( i use bottled water for my soups – just cuz ) till pot is 2/3’d full ( a smidgen more)
Garlic powder 1/4 tsp
two cans of cannellini beans ( drained )
2 bay leaves
2 springs of rosemary & thyme
bring to boil
S&P again to taste ( I try and keep it very low sodium )
last 5 minute add some greens – aruguala or spinach (a hand full or two )
Serve topped with fresh parmesan cheese and for me more crushed red pepper flakes
I think I going to order a home treadmill this weekend from Nordictrack they have a great sale going on and free shipping – looking at the 2450 Tredmill (commercial series) & the Jillian Anderson “RampUp” series and just seems I have not been using my gym membership. Its only 10 min. from my home but when I get the energy to workout – something ends up sidetracking me so if its right in my basement I can pop off & on much easier plus the whole family can use it…… that’s my story and sticking with it – LOL
BLINDS ARE BEING INSTALLED TODAY!!!!! Thank goodness – I have been living in a fishbowl – no real neighbors yet but I still have to do army crawl at night from bath to bed…..so thank you Hunter Douglas
Playing with some “falsies” this weekend – MAC vs Ardell (the classic)
I awoke today at 5am to a huge thunderstorm. I just layed there for awhile enjoying the storm and it got me thinking how weather and color affects my moods – I have some friends that are the same way.
I hear it’s called – S.A.D. seasonal effective disorder. I don’t have severe reactions but it does contribute to my day. My energy levels especially, you? Like I am going to make soup today and do cozy things at home.
Thank goodness for Pinterest, Instagram Tublr etc…. It has been crazy busy here for me. Personal things, selling home in Florida (& driving staring back with car – Blah…) Opening our 3rd BBQ Black Hog BBQ & Bar – handling social media for several business & trying to learn all I can about linking things etc. The evolving design of our new home – family life & trying to make time for my health and nurturing some old and new friendships.
BTW – I am planning a ladies get together here @home soon. Not to raise money – not to do anything but enjoy some terrific women I know and want to know more…….
So I am taking a little time from my day to escape and do some surfing for bright pictures that made me happy & keep the creative juices flowing. Hope you like them too!
Oh and still…… trying to put my #IKEA stuff together – you have to really get in your zone for it…..
Will today be the day? I hope so – uggggggggg
GOTTA RUN – THE SUN JUST CAME OUT………..
