What is your New Years change? A new diet? New workout? Or maybe a new hairstyle? We all set goals, and new challenges. Well I have the new hairstyles that are going to be popular come 2016. You may want to keep your length, and if so , there are great ways to keep your length, and maybe switch up the front. 2016 is bringing the bangs back. This is going to be a very popular look, and this hairstyle looks super cute, especially if you have a more oval shape face. The shape of the face has a great deal to do with how a hairstyle looks good on you, and how it shapes your face. I’m absolutely loving the bangs. It actually brings back a bit of the 70’s . Not sure if you want to make the cut? You can buy clip in bangs for a little experience without actually going under the scissors. It’s something that is not a permanent change, but yet can be experimented with for a night out. I actually have some friends who recently got bangs, and said its more easier upkeep. You never know how much you will love it.
Another great hairstyle that is super popular , and has a lot less work time on those busy mornings is the bob. I can’t tell you how cute this looks, and everytime I see it, it makes me want to go for it. It’s a cute length, and takes less time for styling and blow drying. You could actually go for both looks at the same time..bangs and the bob. You may actually wonder why you waited so long.
Happy Saturday ladies!
I’m sure you have all heard the wonderful stories of how mud pulls impurities out of your skin, in return gives your skin a clean healthy glow, and reduction size in your pores. No one likes enlarged pores, and it always helps to use a great mud mask, such as the Glam Glow mud firming treatment.
Glam glow offers wonderful masks for different skin types, but this particular mask helps with skin tightening, pore reduction, and skin brightening. I can’t say I love it better than all the other glam glow masks, because I love Glam Glow products all together, because they are all wonderful. This particular mask gives your skin so much antioxidants and helps supply your skin with moisture and collagen, which in turn helps with fine lines and wrinkles.
This mask is filled with algae extract , and hylauronic acid. If you are looking for a great mask, this is the one to try. Your skin will be more taut, and supple. This is a great mask to use right before going out.
It’s that time of year when the cocktails are swirling, and if you are wine drinker, then I have the perfect food pairings for your favorites. It’s best to associate the best foods with your wine, so you get the most flavor out of it. I have done my homework over many years, and I will tell you that the food does make a huge difference.
Are you a Cabernet Sauvignon fan? To get the best flavor out of your wine, it’s best to pair a good cab with a good red meat , such as a good hearty steak. The flavor of both instantly is compatible. Pinot noir which is a little lighter than a cab, is paired great with earthy dishes , such as a margarita pizza, one with lots of earthy vegetables such as tomatoes, or mushrooms. Sauvignon Blanc, which is a bit more tart , would pair well with great tarts or dressings. Dressings with butter bases.
If you are a champagne fan, then anything salty really brings the most out of your bubbly. Foods such as Chinese pairings, or even salt based flour foods, work well with champagne.
Pinot Grigio works well with light based fish dishes, such as shrimp, ahi tuna, or mussels. The flavor of the Pinot is a bit more sweeter than a Chardonnay, so the light fishes aren’t so overbearing . A Chardonnay would pair well with fatty fish in heavy sauces such as tilapia in a lemon butter sauce, or cod, dipped in a heavy wine sauce. These are all amazing wines, and if your planning on drinking your favorites over the holidays, try pairing it with an amazing meal.
There is always the newest and upcoming trends in health, and as we all get older, it’s best to keep our health at the most optimum level. The newest in health these days is all the rave on bone broth. I have recently started adding it to my diet regimen, and it feels wonderful to know that I’m adding the health benefits to my health.
There are healing compounds found the bone broth, which include collagen, glutamine , and proline.

These great substances help protect the gut lining in your stomach and helps with any healing issues associated with your stomach. Drinking broth or even cooking with it does so much for your health.
Some great health benefits are protection of your joints.

As we get older, it’s always best to keep our joints healthy. It’s better in the long run and will help against many ailments later in life.

Who doesn’t love Starbucks? The drinks they come out with couldn’t get any more delicious, especially around the holidays. It may be easy for some of us to head to a close Starbucks whenever we feel, but for others it may not be so easy. I don’t know about you, but one my ultimate favorite drinks from Starbucks, is the Hibiscus Refresher. The taste is amazing, and instantly refreshing. Are you fan of it? Well I have a recipe that you can make right in your own home, and it taste identical to the real thing, and is a whopping 70 calories.
You will need:
- 5 bags of any brand of Berry Hibiscus Tea. ( I personally love Yogi or Tazo).
- 4 drops of honey
- 5-6 cups boiling water
- Fresh blackberries &blueberries
You want to steep the tea bags in the boiling water , and add the honey . You want to make sure you let it steep for atleast an hour. Pour your tea into a pitcher, and add the berries and how much ice you would like. (Some people do not like them real icy).You can mash the berries up if you would like. Refrigerate for an hour.
This is really so refreshing and you will love it. The refresher can also be turned into a smoothie, by adding some spinach, and almond milk. Its quite yummy.
