This may not be a good thing... Peanut Butter Pop Tarts!
99% of the time, I eat a healthy breakfast.  Really, I do.  But once in a while things get crazy or, sometimes you just get a craving for something different, then we might buy a box of Pop Tarts.  It is going to take real willpower not to buy more than a box or two of these a year.  Creamy peanut butter topped with a sprinkle of sugar - not too sweet, kind of filling.  Haven't tried the Chocolate Peanut Butter yet... probably a good thing!

French, Made Easy!

One of the items on my "Things I Don't Do" list is manicures.  Pedi's yes, but not manicures.  They just don't last and I don't want to spend the time and expense to maintain them.  But recently I read about a product called Nail Glow by Dior.  It claims to create an instant French manicure effect.  According to the label, the unique formula revives the natural colors of the nail - whitens the tips while enhancing the pink color of the nail body.  Designed to be used on its own, it requires just one step to brighten and protect your nails.   I've used it a couple of times, applying two quick coats each time.  I really like it!  It leaves my nails looking "finished" with the hint of a French manicure.  It lasted a week, without any noticeable chips.  I don't think this qualifies as a manicure, so I'm keeping that on my "Don't Do" list, but I will keep using this to keep my nails glowing!

Take a Quick Trip with Me....

... over to the blog Travel Fashion Girl where I am honored to have written a guest post.  Thank you, Alex, for the opportunity!

Sweet or Salty?

Got the munchies but can't decide between Sweet or Salty?  Now you don't have to!  Swing by Walgreens and pick up a bag of the DeLish Popped Granola Chips in Sea Salt Caramel.  These light and crispy multi grain (corn, oat, brown & white rice) chips are sprinkled with sea salt caramel to make them simply irresistible.  But you don't have to resist, one serving is just 140 calories.  Yeah & Yum!
