Lovelies, by now you all are probably aware of my mission to get fit this summer. Every week Ive been finding new ways to spice up my fitness routine whether it be through a ballet inspired workout, yoga or even some exercises to help improve your posture. Ive recently discovered a bunch of sneaky ways to bring you closer to obtaining those rock hard abs, and they dont involve a single crunch.
At the office
Slim down the belly pooch with some Pilates breathing exercises: gently suck in your gut as if you were buttoning a tight pair of skinny jeans, then breathe without allowing your abs to relax. Repeat five times for 30 seconds each. Also, remember to sit up straight! Slouching not only makes you look up to 10 pounds heavier, but it can also weaken ab muscles, effectively undoing all those tireless hours you spent sculpting your abs with planks!
Having flown under the radar since its early August release date was announced about a month ago, this pair of Akron Aeros Nike LeBron X Lows is back on the scene wit a set of fresh new images. Sporting a colorway inspired by the Akron Aeros minor league baseball team, many sneakerheads first thought that this pair was created for the Summit Lake Hornets. In this latest set of photos, the metallic silver upper takes center stage as it truly shines bright in the various new angels. Keep reading after the jump to check out a better look at the previously mentioned pair of Nike LeBron X Lows and let us know if you plan on picking these up when they drop on August 3rd.
Start by washing your face thoroughly with an oil-free cleanser. Follow that up with a toner to remove any excess oil. Then apply primer to the whole face to you’re your makeup in place throughout the day. It is also important to apply sunscreen at this point to protect your skin and actually help your makeup adhere to your face. If you must use foundation, stick to one that is oil-free and lightweight. If you can skip it, simply cover-up problem areas with concealer and then set with a mineral finishing powder. Apply waterproof mascara and eyeliner to finish the look. Stick to lip products that are not sticky like a basic lip balm or a lip stain for some colour. If you can find one with SPF in it that is even better!

I love convertible or 2-in-1 handbags! They are so awesome! I mean, who doesnt like to get the most bang for their buck? And handbags that can take on different looks can help you do just that. So when I see a handbag fitting this description, I always have to stop and take a good long look. That is what happened when I saw the Maison Martin Margiela Reflective Fold Over Tote! I am glad I did too because what I saw in this handbag was so much more than I was expecting!
This lovely tote features a mirror-like exterior that catches and reflects the light. Small strips of leather crisscross this exterior, creating a lattice pattern. Very pretty, yet simple at the same time! This tote also features a gusseted side that expands to make more room inside and a magnetic exterior pocket.
Ill be honest, Lovelies: I like to save money just as much as the next gal, but when it comes to beauty products, Im guilty of a splurge every now and then. Ill gladly drop $10 on a gorgeous nail lacquer that Ill wear every day for months, and Ill probably spend $35 on a cleanser if my flawless-skinned friends have been raving about it. But I think its pretty safe to say that (no matter how much money I made) I will never spend this much money on a bottle of nail polish
A new limited edition polish by jewelry designer AZATURE costs $250,000 — and the polish is so exclusive they’re only making one bottle, called Black Diamond. What could possibly cause it to cost $250k, you might ask? The polish contains 267 carats of real black diamonds.
According to the designer, “the black diamond is the ultimate fine jewel. Its combin
Alohi is an emerging footwear brand focused on climbing their way into the game. Alohi will be releasing their Lo-LO collection this summer, hoping to catch the eyes of many fashion fanatics. The style of the Alohi Lo-LO collection is very simple and could easily be overlooked. However, once this shoe catches your eye, it hard to look away.
The canvas upper is very similar to a low-top Chuck Taylor, with white stitching along the laces, but the Lo-LO offers some differences that help them stand out. For starters, there is a pull tab on the heel, which is probably what many wish were on Chucks, and a flip down tongue—unique, yet still simple.
Alohi is a complete brand that could easily produce waves in the sneaker-world. The shoes will be available on their website tomorrow, and will be hitting various stores throughout the month. <
