Eating non-stop throughout the day is one of the frustrating habits to have.  For me, it seems to come in waves. Sometimes, I can exercise incredible amounts of will-power when it comes to eating sensibly, other times, I eat well above my normal requirements.

Over the years, I've known friends who've sought out the help of supplements to aid with appetite control.  I've always stayed away from this approach because I have this perception that diet pills were dangerous or unhealthy.  Plus, many of them are meant to be taken for a short period of time. What happens when you stop consuming them?

Recently I asked myself if there was something I could take to help control my appetite when I'm out and about.  Typically, when hunger sets in while I'm away from my house, I make poor decisions.  My intention is to have something (healthy) that I can take to hold me over until I got back home.

 It didn't take me long to come up with the perfect solution.  Not only does this supplement keep me fuller, longer, it also helps to promote healthy hair, skin, and nails!

I spent the better part of the weekend cleaning the house for company coming over this week. Whenever I receive visitors, I invest a set amount of time to deep clean and declutter.  During the process, I realized how much I fell in love with the final outcome.  It felt amazing!

But then a thought crossed my mind.  Why didn't I clean my home to this level on a routine basis?  Why wasn't this my normal standard?

I'm so looking forward to summer.  I often find myself searching for inspiration on simple makeup looks made for summer.  Days ago, I stumbled on the perfect summer face. What made me fall in love is how this makeup look will work perfectly whether a day or night.

The finished product is stunning but what really sold me was that the entire face featured a single item.  And don't worry, this product is super easy to use even if makeup isn't for forte.  I was so inspired by the look that I'm going to try it this weekend!

Lately, I've found it a bit difficult to make it to the gym.  I would love to work out 4 times a week but time just doesn't seem to be on my side.  Because exercise has so many benefits (and summer is fast approaching), I've been on the lookout for a hack that can give me similar results with less time investment.

Thankfully, I stumbled on the perfect solution.  It's called exercise snacking.  I don't want to be dramatic, but exercise snacking will probably change your entire life.

Welcome to another Monday.  I used to think that Mondays were the worst! But now I've come to appreciate Mondays as an important tool when it comes to goal achievement.  Every single Monday marks the beginning of a new (work) week.  It's the perfect opportunity to set the direction for our week ahead.  If we aren't careful, this week will come and go in the blink of an eye and nothing will change.  

But that's not what we want.  We want to be able to affect the outcome of our week.  We want to have active participation in creating the life we desire.  Let's discuss exactly how to do that.

One of my favorite things in life is to jump on an Instagram live only to stumble on a beauty secret reveal.  I've come across some great nuggets while stalking IG lives.  One of my favorite instances was learning the power of using witch hazel in the war against acne.

Yesterday I stumbled on yet another amazing find that I can't wait to share with you all.

I absolutely love learning new skin tips that I can apply right away and see results without having to run out and buy new products.  Last week I learned of a simple technique that instantly made my skin look healthier and more radiant.  This tip is so good that I've pretty much applied it every day since. 

Before I reveal this dewy skin tip, I want to preface by saying that I learned of this method from an article featuring Sir John.  If that name doesn't ring a bell, let me remind you that Sir John is Beyonce's makeup artist.  We've featured some of Sir John's tips here in the past.  I love his practical approach to makeup.  He's all about creating wearable, timeless looks.  Whenever Sir John shares a tip for a flawless face, I'm all ears.

A few weeks ago, a friend shared short videos of a Vision Board party she attended.  Every year, around this time, success-minded women gather together with a stack of magazines in hopes of piecing together various clipped images that represent their ideal life.

Vision boards became wildly popular after the release of the movie The Secret.  This movie came out over a decade ago. Back then, there wasn't any inspiration based social media or websites like Pinterest.  So, of course, magazine clippings were the most viable option.  In my opinion, using magazine images and gluing them to construction paper is an antiquated way to create a visual representation of your desires. 

Let's try a more effective option.

Typically, when one thinks about what to do to attack and eliminate acne, the first thought that comes to mind is how to dry out pimples.  Drying out pimples isn't necessarily a wrong strategy but is it the absolute best way to create healthy skin?

Perhaps there's a completely different approach that can both eliminate acne while promoting glowing skin at the same time.

2019 is moving fast.  So how are you progressing on your goals?  Typically, the first month of the year provides us a glimpse of what's to come.  If you haven't made as much progress as you'd like, but you're really serious about achieving your goals, I'd like to introduce you to a system that just might make that possible.
