Eating healthier always seems to be an agenda item for me. While I like to think that I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle, I’ve noticed that since I’ve hit 30, keeping the weight off is a challenge. I’m always incorporating new recipes into my routine, and healthy snack ideas are important.
I don’t know about you, but I need a little chocolate every day. It just makes me feel better. Attention fellow chocoholics — eating chocolate regularly is heart healthy! Chocolate lowers blood pressure, “bad” LDL cholesterol, and boasts a lower risk of heart disease. It’s basically your sixth food group! ;-)
I’m so thankful that I found Weight Watchers snack foods at my local Shop Rite. They are a game changer! Biting into their snacks is like eating the real thing. Their food never tastes “diet-y”. I especially love the Weight Watchers Whitman’s Candies. Each candy is 2 WW points, and they taste so rich! Who said dieting wasn’t fun?!
If you shop at your local Shop Rite between 9/11 and 9/24, you’ll receive a coupon for $5 off your next purchase when you buy $15 worth of Weight Watchers snacks while supplies last. Want to try some Weight Watchers snacks? Select ShopRite and PriceRite locations will have a Sampling Event on 9/18 between 10-4. Stop by to try great products and get a coupon!
Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone! Now that the weather is getting cooler, I’m excited to incorporate a few of these heavier pieces into my wardrobe. This sleeveless sweater tunic is a perfect weight for fall, and the red color is so juicy! I don’t know about you, but red is by favorite color to wear — next to pink, of course! The color looks great with or without a tan. These white jeans got so much use this summer! I’ve been eying this adorable straw tote ALL summer, and I finally scooped it up on super sale. It was meant to be! Lastly, I love a statement shoe, and these wild print pumps are the bee’s knees.

One of my signature staples is a great smoky eye. I love a beauty look that can take me from day to night. I also really love nude, taupe, and bronze shades because they enhance my hazel eyes. Weird fact — my eyes have actually turned from dark brown to hazel since childhood. Has this happened to anyone else?
In any event, I was so excited to test out the new Giorgio Armani Smoky Eye Tints and Eccentrico Mascara. As a long time fan of the Giorgio Armani beauty line — their Fluid Sheers are insanely gorgeous — I knew that I would probably love their newest eye products. The Eye Tint is an innovative formula that transforms from liquid to solid, instantly adhering to the eyelid and providing 16 hours of fault-proof, smudge-free, and crease-free wear.
The colors are so beautiful, versatile, and apply like a dream! My favorite Eye Tint is #12 Gold Ashes because it’s so pigmented and golden. I apply it to the inside corners of the eye lid layering the wand over the other tints. The tints are creamy and completely blendable.
I’m also really impressed with the New Eccentrico Mascara. It’s a high volume, long-wear mascara that results in precise separation with buildable results. I couldn’t believe how easily it separated my fine, dense lashes. Also, removing the makeup at the end of the day was super easy. No mess or fuss.
Disclosure: Giorgio Armani makeup was provided to me via Influenster for review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale has officially begun! This is undoubtedly the best sale of the season. Many dresses which normally retail for well over $250 are only $59! The sale runs from August 22-23.
When you head over to the website, you’re entered in an online queue where you wait your turn for entrance to the sale. Be sure to shop quickly and often. Shipping is FREE and items sell out very quickly. Once you’ve completed checkout, you are entered at the bottom of the queue, so everyone gets a fair chance at the items that they love!
My personal experience: I set my alarm for 8:00 AM this morning, and I was among the very lucky few to only wait a few minutes for entry to the sale. I nabbed a bunch of great dresses and tops, but the accessories went really fast. My Lilly Pulitzer store opened at 9:00 AM, so I was also able to head over there. Although there wasn’t as great of a selection, After Party sale items are returnable for 30 days when purchased at a retail store. So, definitely swing by your store if you’re unable to score your size.
