Watches are some of my fav item's to collect!  When it comes to looking totally put together,  a great watch is the icing on the cake.  These are some of the watches that I've had my eye on throughout the past year, we've got a mixture of edgy, classic and femininity.

ARE YOU CONSUMING ENOUGH?

Links to this post
I'm often asked about how to keep skin free of breakouts,  and my only answer is keeping a clean face and consuming h2o.
Do you know how much water you should be consuming on a daily basis? 
Find out here: http://nutrition.about.com/library/blwatercalculator.htm


According to my Daily Hydration Calculator, I should be drinking about 2 liters (65.5 oz) of water on a daily basis, that's easy!  Think about it, that is only about 4 bottles of water a day. 

When I wake up in the morning, 
I eat breakfast and take my daily vitamins with a 16.9 FL OZ bottle of water. 

I grab my morning coffee, and follow up with another 16.9 FL OZ bottle of water.  
I do this because coffee is very dehydrating, and can easily 
 suck the life out of your skin--leaving you with a dull complexion. 

Around lunch time I'll normally have a lemonade or fruit punch to drink, and I'll sip on a water throughout the remainder of the day. 

My last bottle of water is normally at night, right before bed.

Figure out how much water you should be drinking daily + commit to it.

Back in highschool my cousin *the cosmetology student* told me that I had almond eyes, I didn't know exactly how she came up with it but said okay, cool.  So I've gone into adulthood knowing that I had almond shaped eyes but not knowing exactly how that conclusion came about.

WE LOVE OUR PHONES, BUT THE BILL. . .

Links to this post


The amount that I pay on my phone bill is out of this world! I throw a side-eye at my Verizon bill when it arrives-- Yet I willingly pay the amount month to month because in today's society a phone is something that we absolutely can not go without. We'd be missing out on all of the social media goodness! Honestly, I feel like it is my duty to be on social networks inspiring, motivating and helping others... so of course I'm keeping my phone!
