Belly Baring

I’m cleansing you guys – because it’s Summertime and baring your midriff is big this season.
I scoured the Internet until I found a doable detox program and the Four Elements Cleanse seems doable. I’ll eat high fiber fruits, veggies and grains and drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne pepper for the next 7-10 days. Easy peasy. Except I make everything extra difficult for myself. I overindulged this weekend so I’m starting off puffier than usual and craving a Fritter like a mofo.

It’s been three hours. I have a headache. I want a cup of coffee. I’m gagging over the detox drink. I’ll let you know how I’m feeling in a few days. Happy Monday!

Just Dance

I woke up this morning with an abundant amount of energy. I love mornings like this, they emit productiveness. I got up, kissed my sweet man on the forehead, brewed some dark roast coffee, (as if I needed more voltage) turned on my ipod and jumped in the shower.

Time was on my side this am, so I threw on a Wella Brilliance hair treatment knowing it would make my hair look fabulous for my friday meeting. To gain full victory of the mask I had to let it sit for 2-3 minutes, I couldn’t stand still for that long? what could I do? Squats..I did squats in the shower.  Ambitious right.  I know!

When I got out I dried off and poured myself a cup of java, and then magic happened, I heard JLo’s new tune” Get on the Floor”. The rhythm really got to me,  I danced my morning away. I channeled Demi Moore avec Striptease, and shook my little booty while I applied my Laura Mercier 3 part beauty routine and blew my lush locks. It was magnificent.

The dance vibes carried out like Timberland and JT right into my commute to TO. I look better, I feel fantastic and this was all made possible by dancing. Now here’s where it becomes relevant to beauty -Dancing releases endorphins and produces oxygen rich blood helping reduce stress and tension. Beyond that it also gives your skin a beautiful glow and makes you feel better. It’s a pre botox fix! Like Lady Gaga said “just dance”!

Happy weekend everyone, I’m off to little mexico with my friends for the evening. On the agenda: social time, mexican fare. Diet smiet….I will be indulging in major margaritas.

Dance, Dance….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4H_Zoh7G5A

Headdress

I’m totally gripped on dressing my head right now, never mind the snug knits or military hats of the winter months,  I shed those weeks ago,  I’m talking headscarves, turbans and wide headbands.

Spring is virtually almost here..I can smell it. It smells like mud, plus I’m getting lots of use of my original Hunter Boots, this means style is springing forward!

Back to head dressing. I like my hair. I take somewhat good care of it,  but lately I find myself too busy.  Between the gym, my career, the renovations and blogging I simply don’t have the time to flat-iron or barrel curl it like I used to.  Which brings me to dressing my head.  The  idea of stepping up an outfit with accessories and head dresses makes me giddy. It’s a great way to budget, and explore different avenues of style without out actually blowing a pot hole in your handbag (you’re welcome, husbands, boyfriends, finances, parents).  Like, H&M, they have great accessories and Forever21, well that’s just a given, you can walk out of that place with a boat load of accessories for under 30 bucks.

Hand bands, scarves and turbans are great for a prompt current looks.  For those “I don’t want to wash my hair days” or if your just kickin it with your friends, hubby or kids…why not look fabulous?

here are some great inspirations:
