Does your gym have a Rower?

As a fan of the Biggest Loser, I have researched some of there main workouts. Ali's routine includes 30 minutes of rowing every other day.

This is a great way to incorporate more cardio while toning. It mixes up the routine and completely kicks your booty!!

My triceps are sore and my legs feel like I got a great work out. To keep you entertained you can play the fish game or race against the computer. It was a great workout.

Must-Have Plaid Shirts

Un-tucked plaid button-downs will be great to bring in the fall. Yes...fall is here at least in Chicago!

Sarah Palin for President!!

If you've never been into politics or excited about who's running- then this is your year to get excited and get in "The Know". Sarah Palin is so inspiring and such a great role model for the American Women (forget Oprah, she won't even have the potential Vice President on her show). Check out her amazing speech at the Republican National Convention http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snomW6Bdrpo (it's a 5 part series).

Camera Straps

I know there are lots of you out there that are picture crazy right now. Check out these camera straps. They come in many prints!

Treating Dark Spots

Those of you that know me think I'm a little crazy when it comes to Skincare. I wear a hat 24/7 + sunscreen + tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. I protect my skin constantly! Then something crazy happened when I was pregnant! I got the pregnancy mask called melasma. This is when your hormones create an overproduction of melanin which turns some areas of your face darker or blothy.

This is very hard to treat! Most doctors prescribe Hydroquinone, Retina, Laser treatments, etc. There is a downfall to these products and treatments. They make your skin more sensitive to the sun so the problem can become worse. Also, some people have reactions to these products and the melasma will intensify! Be very careful when treating this problem.

Well...trust me! I have tried everything under the sun and I think I found a winner! It is called Meladerm. I have used it for 2 weeks and I'm already seeing a difference. My baby is 1 yr. now so my Melasma has faded but I had a few areas that I wanted to lighten up. It works and so does the price. Check it out!

What are you going to be Halloween night??

This is a must have Halloween Bag for the kids. It can hold a ton of candy and I think they are pretty fabulous! They are from Polka Dot Market.
