treadmill If you are looking for a quick and dirty – and incredibly easy to follow – diet and exercise plan we have just the thing for you! It’s easy to follow, relatively painless, and works for every woman, no matter how busy her schedule is! The plan is simple – start every week day with 20 minutes on the treadmill. Walk for 2 minutes, and then speed it up for 18 minutes of jogging. If you have more energy push yourself for a harder run, or if you are feeling slugglish set your treadmill to a slower pace – as long as you’re running! If you don’t have a treadmill it’s no problem - jump rope, take a bike ride, or go for a swim. The important thing is that you’re jumpstarting your day – and your metabolism – with 20 minutes of exercise every week day. After your morning exercise eat a light and fibre filled breakfast. Our fave is 1% milk with a small handful of old style muslix. The milk fills us up, and the muslix gives us protein and all sorts of great vitamins. You can also try no fat cottage cheese and an apple, or plain oatmeal with a spoonful of honey and a few berries. Come lunch time you’ll notice a big difference. Since you already exercised and started your day with a healthy breakfast you’ll be much more motivated to keep yourself healthy – and you don’t want to waste your efforts from the morning by eating crap now – so staying to a healthy plan all day just comes naturally! Try it out – run for 20 minutes every morning, followed by a light and healthy breakfast – you’ll be amazed what it does for your body, mind and waistline and you should start to see a difference after just one week

Super Fun Bachelorette Party Ideas
June 2, 2010 at 11:23 am 0
It's wedding season, and that means Bachelorette parties! But they don't have to be about lollipops taped to your shirt and penis tattoo all over you face! A new era of bachelorette parties is upon us, so now everyone can get involved in the silliness AND you don't have to hit the clubs and get totally humiliated if it's not your thing. Themed Bachelorette Parties Instead of just making the party about getting married, add some other ingredients into the mix so all of your friends can celebrate with you. Some great ideas are Madonna themed "Like" A Virgin parties and Smurfette parties. Get Ready With Your Girlfriends Most of the fun happens when you and your girlfriends are sipping cocktails, loading on eye makeup and getting really silly together. So start your party a bit earlier and enjoy all the giggles you and your girlfriends will have as you crimp your hair, mix up your lace outfits, and scream in delight over who has the most ridiculous outfit. Have A Secret Santa Outfit Party Want to take your party to the next level? Set up a secret santa and assign everyone names for who they have to bring an outfit for. Make sure that everyone writes down the sizes, and you cap off the spending at around $25. Your friends will show up with their ridiculous outfits for each other and you will have an absolute blast revealing the clothes and making everyone dress up. Skip The Club And Hit The Track If you are not the clubbing type there are loads of fun activities like horse racing (think of the gorgeous hats and outfits you get to wear!) and go karting, or even car racing that can make for a really memorable bachelorette. Don't stick with the club tradition if it's not something that works for you. Keep in mind if you are planning a bachelorette party, or if you are the bachelorette the cheaper and easier your party is the more fun it's likely to be. When everyone is spending a fortune to go to Vegas for your bachelorette the expectations are so high, that it can be really hard to hit it out of the park. If you do something fun, easy and accessible for all there will be less drama, fewer money worries, and more great memories.

Why You Don’t Want to Cut Your Hair Short
November 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm 2


Like every girl I love having long hair to play with, style, pin up and style down, and add bits of colour every now and then. But once in a while I see a hair cut that makes me want to chop it all off and sport a super sassy hairdo. I love how edgy, sophisticated and easy this hair looks.



But I used to have short hair. So I know it's not that easy. You need to cut your hair once a month to keep it looking good. You always have to have polished clothes and nicely shined shoes, because short hair and sloppy Saturday style just makes you look bummy. And you don't get to mix up your hair style with a huge variety. So everytime I'm tempted to chop it all off I try to remember how difficult it really is. Temptation be gone!
