Woman love your body

Hi everyone, 

This one may get ranty so you have my permission not to continue reading.

I am a bit of a magazine junkie! I love reading all the latest news and seeing what the latest gossip is.

The other day I was reading my mags when I felt this strange feeling bubbling inside me. Yes it was rage. 

One minute the magazine are praising girls for being curvy then they are saying that we are all fat. 

Yes What I was reading was about Kim Kardashian, who I am the same weight as. But in one mag she was being hailed for her gorgeous curves and the next she was slated for being a FAT Bride WTF!!!
what about this girl is fat? So by Hollywood standards which are barbaric she is curvy but how on earth are we all going to love our figures if we are constantly getting told what is beautiful???

Who makes the rules? Who says a skinny girl cant be as attractive as a big girl? and vise versa?
why cant we all just see the beauty in everyone? look at these three women they are all amazing and beautiful yet two are called plus size? Which to be honest just sound negative. Does it really matter what size you are if you are happy and healthy? 

Don't get me wrong I diet and exercise but that's because I feel better being fit. Which is my choice. I have been a size 22 and a size 6. I am now at 8/10 and I'm happy Yes some days I have the off day where I would like to be thinner but I am human and this is me FAT or THIN I am me.

Guest post by Anita Rosner

Hi everyone, 

Id like to introduce my new guest poster the wonderful Anita Rosner.

Anita Rosner is an American essayist who lives in New York with her husband and two children.  She’s been writing since she could pick up a pencil and created the blog SNORK to spread laughter and positive energy, and to avoid doing the laundry.

Dr. P and Me

Life is full of decisions.  Some are easy to make.  Others can be paralyzing.  That’s how I felt, while standing over my open cosmetics bag.

The flight was less than 24-hours away.  Everything was packed and ready to go, except for my toiletries; and that is where I made a major miscalculation: there was no way I could fit all my skincare products in a quart-size plastic bag (a la TSA regulations) to carry them onboard.  It simply was not possible, and had the potential of ruining my vacation.  Let me explain…
have long been an acolyte of Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD.  Yes, I say acolyte because, not only is he an accomplished physician, and a genius in the area of natural anti-aging therapies, but to me he is a skincare god – the creator of products that I simply cannot live without.  Cannot!  The idea of traveling to Mexico without them gave me the heebie-jeebies.  

Dr. P makes plenty of travel-size items (which I neglected to order in advance) and his team is very generous with samples (Karina, my go-to gal at the NYC flagship storewould have hooked me up if I’d remembered to go see her).  But I had not planned well, and now it was too late for anyone to bail me out.

Why not just pack the full-size items in your checked bags?  Is that what you’re wondering?  Clearly, you are not familiar with the Perricone product line.  Some of the merchandise cost more than most items in my wardrobe, and all were certainly more valuable to me than clothing.  If they got lost en route…well…I couldn’t even bring myself to think about that.  So I decided to ask myself some questions and, based on the answers, I’d know which Perricone treatments to pack:

Q.Was I willing to skip an entire week of Vitamin C Ester Serum?  
A.No, I might lose the radiant glow that was getting me so many compliments.

Q.Could I sacrifice the refreshing exfoliating benefits of Blue Plasma ever night?
A.Sure, if I wanted to walk around with dead skin cells on my face.

Q.If I went 7 days without using High Potency Amine Face Lift and its amazing nighttime counterpart, High Potency Evening Repair, would my face fall down around my ankles?
A.Probably not, but no one in their right mind would be willing to take that chance.

Q.Would it be OK to skip the broad-spectrum sun protection of PhotoPlasma moisturizer?

I finally decided to create my own sample sizes by scooping out just enough creams and serums to last one week. This might sound like an obvious solution, but let me tell you, I was not entirely comfortable exposing my wonderful products to sunlight and elements and (gasp!) plastic.   Most of Dr. Perricone’s original packaging is made of brown glass (to protect their contents from light) and his line does not contain parabens(preservatives).  I realized the possibility of contaminating tiny amounts of my beloved skincare was the lesser evil of going cold turkey for a whole week without them.  

In the end, all of my bags arrived safely, my skin did not suffer and I had a wonderful time in Mexico.  Above all, I learned my lesson.  I now keep my toiletries bag stocked with travel-sizes of my favorite Perricone essentials.

In the future, I might forget to pack my pajamas or a bathing suit, but my skin will always be well-dressed, thanks to Dr. P.

2014 Summer Fashion trends by Analesha

Hi Everyone

How are we all?  I'm just here to Introduce the gorgeous Analesha to my blog. Have you added her yet? Get on it!

Hi! Im Analesha. A 23 year old ex international flight attendant whos now a stay at home mum to a beautiful 11 month old boy. I am obsessed with make up and spend far to much money on it. My theory is you can never have enough lipsticks! Be sure to check out my blog lipsandbubbles.blogspot.com and twitter @Analeshaaaa and say hi xxx

2014 Summer beauty trends

As summer is fast approaching there are many things to look forward to. Late night's,
cocktails on the beach and road trips just to name a few. Each year summer there's
always one thing that changes (and no its not who your boyfriend is!) and that's the top
beauty trends. Fresh of the runway I am going to take you step by step through the top
7 trends for this summer!

 1. Purple make up
This can be in various shades of purple ranging from Lilac, orchard or lavender.
The most popular way to include purple make up is in the form of eyeshadow.
However other options include mascara, lipstick or eyeliner.

2. Orange is the new red
I never ever ever thought that orange would be a popular trend however its here
and looks amazing. From neon orange to coral, orange lips make being a big mouth
popular. Bright lip colors are most easily applied in the form of a chunky glide on
crayon type lipstick.

3. Rebellious Eyeliner
Black eyeliner is a classic look and this summer its time to get creative. More bold
angels, flicks and lines are prominent and the bigger the eyeliner the more
attitude you give.

4. Golden glow
If bronzer is not one of your must have make up items, make it. This summer the
golden shimmer is in right now. A golden, natural bronze is the look you want to
achieve, not necessarily the look of being rolled in a puddle of fake tan.

5. Something blue
In 2013 we saw the return of the blue eyed trend and now its living on. Whether
it is blue eyeshadow or eyeliner there's a form of blue just for you.

6. The Falsies
False eyelashes have been popular for a few years now. Giving bold, confident and
strong lashes are nearly a necessity for all girls and part of your daily routine.
However, this summer we see false eyelashes applied to the top AND bottom. I
think this one will take a lot of confidence to successfully wear!

7. Bare face and beautiful
How ironic that one of the biggest make up trends is the perception of not
wearing any make up. Victoria Beckham is an advocate for this and if VB is behind
it we know its going to be huge. As some of us aren't gifted with naturally
beautiful, blemish free skin its going to be about finding the right balance. My
tips would be to find a good BB cream and translucent powder!
So there you have it. 

The beauty gods have spoken. Id love to know what trends you will
be sticking to this summer and how you will achieve them! Xo
