Mango. Jasmine. Relaxation. No, it's not exactly a vacation in an exotic location, but it's close. güd Mango Moonbreeze Shampoo & Conditioner by Burt's Bees can take you there for about 10 minutes when you're indulging in a little "me" time during a bath or shower. I've been using the güd foaming hand wash in the "Pearanormal Activity" scent for awhile now, which I love, so I jumped on the opportunity to try out this hair product line.

The period between winter and spring is an awkward time of year. You can't pack away your winter wardrobe because you have to dress warm in the early mornings and late evenings, but you need lighter clothing in the daytime. This presents the perfect time to rock trendy winter pieces while incorporating spring colors into your outfits. Here are some ways to get out of your fashion limbo and make the smooth transition from winter to spring.

The quote above was in a book that I started rereading this weekend titled, "The Beauty Blueprint". I got the book awhile back, but forgot about it until recently. I guess a part of me needed to be reminded of why I started this blog. I can relate to alot of what the author, Michelle Phillips, has gone through. Going from "having it all" to having nothing, then discovering her purpose and calling in life.

Pressure to compete with others in our lives is something that we feel on a daily basis. When it comes to planning a wedding, this can translate into spending for the purpose of having the best wedding of all our friends and family. However, it is important to understand that it may not always be in your best interest to duplicate what others may be doing with their money. When your special day comes with the person you love, it may be best to focus on simply using your resources in order to have the best possible time. Attempting to outspend your friends or family members would be like engaging in a race to go broke, this is not something that you should take part in on purpose. Instead, you should remember that your wedding is about an expression of love, you do not need to spend all of your money to have a great event.
I am a huge Boston Celtics fan, and although the team hasn't been doing well this season, I still support and love them!

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in San Diego for the past week. The birds are chirping extra loud, the smell of jasmine is in the air, and all the colorful flowers are in bloom. So of course I'm feeling inspired and want to dress accordingly!
This is a continuation of my previous post where I've been doing some online "window shopping" for fun spring dresses. Here are 5 more that I'm adding to the wishlist...

Picking out his and her wedding rings is often one of the first 'official' acts a couple does as they approach the commitment of a marriage that will bind the two of them legally together into a married partnership. Depending on your relationship and the type of communication you have had about the subject of marriage, either you pick your rings together, or each partner selects a ring for the other, individually, as a part of the traditional suspense of the wedding proposal and later ceremony. Either way, the choice deserves a lot of thought.
If the process of selecting rings is a team effort for the affianced, communication between the partners is essential. Everything from choice of material for the wedding band to style and type of diamonds to include may be open for discussion, although often, a woman may have had a very clear idea of what she imagines as her ideal wedding ring for some time.
