How to look thinner than you actually are

Oh God. Why do we do this? Every year, we force each other to parade around in bathing suits. Is it masochism, voyeurism, or some sick combination thereof?

In any event, it’s time to wear small amounts of slippery-feeling clothing in front of your friends. Yay? Problem is, just like me you’ve failed to ditch the eggnog-and-butter-cookies weight (or habit) of yesterwinter and you’re still a little, um… paunchy.

Athleisure shorts with built-in lifehacks? Um, yes.

Since I’m a daily fitness gal who works from home (*thbbbbt*), I’ve totally embraced the athleisure/fitness-wear-all-day-erry-day trend. It’s pretty much my dream come true. However, I have noticed that some gym shorts are… how can I put this nicely? Stupid.

It’s not their fault, they just weren’t designed with use in mind. What we really need are shorts with pockets for our earbuds on a jog.

It turns out, though, that there’s hope, and it only takes one Prince Charming to make the memory of all the ruby-red frogs you’ve kissed (and subsequently rubbed off your makeup on) just melt away. Yes, ladies, I’ve found a lip stain that actually works, lasts, and looks good.

Want proof? Here it is on my face. That’s a stain, people! All by itself! Continue reading “Really though – you NEED this lip stain.” »

How a Ceiling Fan Keeps You Healthy

Summer days are filled with fun and adventure. But those hot summer nights can be fairly miserable when you’re trying to get to sleep. Even sleeping with only a sheet can leave you tossing and turning in discomfort. We don’t want to blast our air conditioning on high every night– it’s a waste of energy and money. What can we do to stay cool without harming the planet or paying a fortune?

We Need Our Sleep!

As you already know, we all need a good night’s sleep to lead happy, healthy and active lifestyles. The amount of sleep we need, however, varies by age. According to the National Sleep Foundation, here are the recommended hours of sleep we should be getting depending on our age range: Continue reading “How a Ceiling Fan Keeps You Healthy” »
