Back to reality

Once again, a fun weekend comes to an end. It sucks, but I guess I have to return to reality. Thanks a lot San Diego for making me fall in love with you. There is something about beach cities that I just can’t explain. When I visit them, I don’t want to leave. I fall more in love every single time.San Diego welcomed me, my hubby, and one of my bff’s with open arms. We ate, slept, ate, shopped, drank, and ate. We even went swimming, thank goodness the outdoor pool was heated! It was a lot of fun. And…

For example, today I was searching for something totally random and I ran across this hot little fashion line.It’s called Missphit, and I want to try their clothes soooooo bad. Look at these cute pieces!! I’m curious about the quality and fit of their clothes.Do you own any Missphit pieces?

Beauty Buzz: Summer Essentials

As I make my way into the weekend for some much needed sun, fun, shopping, and relaxation-I can’t help but pass on what I think are summer essentials. In Monique language, that means beauty products your face, skin, nails, and hair will need to survive the harsh sun…and a few extras…of course. Besides, the sun also causes wrinkles!! That’s enough to convince me!Sunscreen: I can not stress how important it is to wear sunscreen. Come on! It’s your skin we’re talking about. The higher the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) the better. SPF is defined as a number assigned to a…

Huh? What?

Today’s topic is “What?” Yes, the entire phrase “What?” is on the table today.I have heard many things in my day. Good things, bad things, and questionable things. But have you ever overheard someone say something about you and you just can’t help but say “What?”I had that moment and I can’t believe I almost forgot to tell you about it!So, there I was walking out of the medical center into the parking lot. There were two older men walking about 20 feet behind me. I know they were older because they probably couldn’t hear very well, hence their loud…

Alisi Swimwear=Love

I never thought it would be possible for me to fall in love with swimwear. I mean, I’ve always HATED my body in a bathing suit. Well, I guess Alisi Swimwear has given me a reason to LOVE again. I’m head-over-heels for these swimsuits! Gorgeous! They come in Australian sizes 12-24. That averages to US sizes of 10-22 (make sure you check out the size chart).I would wear any one of them proudly in all of my curvy glory! Alisi is an Australian company, but they do ship internationally. You can even find them on these US and UK web…
