bikini so teeny

Good Morning my Beautiful Readers.. Fashion post!
For this look I was inspired by the a shade from the new Essie Nail Polish Summer Collection.
I call this look "bikini so teeny" in place of the Essie shade "bikini so teeny" (a sparkling, cornflower blue).
The jewelry is gold with pops of baby blue tones.
You can choose whatever makeup style you prefer. For lips use... MAC VIVA GLAM GAGA in Pink.
For nails OF CORSE I used the shade "bikini so teeny" by Essie (such a cute nail polish name!)
The sandals are very hot right?!!
The fragrance/perfume you can choose from three that all fit.. Escada Island Cool, Victoria's Secret Ohlala, or Victoria's Secret Angel.
For the hairstyle you can style it in a high ponytail or big curls fit for the beach.
Are you as obsessed with this bikini as I am? :) SO HOT!
Hope you like it!

I recently picked up a couple of new products while at Superstore, one is today's post.
Blue Menu - Smoothie Fruit Bars in the flavor mango peach.
Made with real fruit and 80 calories per bar.
I love the ingredients don't have unnecessary things in it, just Fruit Purees and Water pretty much.
These are great, and I wasn't expecting much because of the Superstore brand "Blue Menu".
But saying that, I actually have been impressed with the quality and selection of products from the Blue Menu label!
These Fruit Bars are very tasty, very fresh mango & peach flavor like you just made them homemade.
I also liked the ice-ness on the outside of the bar, very refreshing!
Great treat for laying out by the pool..
Looking forward to the other flavors for this collection. :)

Hey Everyone!
Good Morning.. check out this recipe for "Spicy Brownie Bites".

Total Time
1:25 Hr:Mins
42 brownie

1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from can of chipotle chiles)
1 container (12 oz) Betty Crocker® Whipped cream cheese frosting
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

Heat oven to 350°F. Place mini paper baking cup in each of 42 mini muffin cups.
In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup, water, oil, egg and adobo sauce until blended. Fill muffin cups about three-fourths full, using about 1 tablespoon batter in each.
Bake 18 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in edge of brownie comes out clean. (Do not overbake.) Cool 5 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Frost brownies with cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with pepper flakes.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Simplify by baking the brownies in a 13x9-inch pan about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool at least 1 hour. After frosting, cut brownies into small squares (7 rows by 6 rows or smaller) and serve in miniature paper or foil baking cups.
Look for cans of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce in the international section of the grocery store.
If you don’t have enough mini muffin pans, refrigerate the batter until ready to bake and cool the pan 10 to 15 minutes before reusing; add 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.

Hey Beauties!
Time for another "I Love It Perfume" posts.
Well today's is called "Truth or Dare by Madonna".
Really love the bottle design & fresh, gardenia-based scent!
Been seeing the commercial so much and love it! Very Hot!
A little about the new fragrance from "Truth or Dare by Madonna is a contemporary and sexy reinvention of a classic, robust signature white floral. The unique blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla, create a scent that is timeless yet modern, simultaneously dark and light. The addition of gourmand notes such as Vanilla and Caramelized Amber makes the fragrance stand out from traditional floral fragrances and gives it a contemporary edge. Experience the opulent and sensual scent of Truth or Dare by Madonna with the new fragrance collection for women."
The Song used in the ad is "Girl Gone Wild - Offer Nissim Remix" I've been addicted to it!
The also have a matching Shower Gel & Body Lotion.. amazing!
Check out the ad/commercial & song below..

Be sure to check out this gorgeous fragrance at your local beauty counter..
Be on the lookout soon for more "I Love It Perfume" posts on my favorite fragrances! :)

I purchased this fragrance for myself.

I have been eating lots of Watermelon during this Spring.. it's always fun to sit outside or while watching tv.. to have a piece of watermelon during the lovely Spring/Summer Weather!
Well ever wondered what the Benefits of Watermelon is?
I prefer Organic Seedless ones.. just simply sliced and drank with some water.. VERY refreshing on a hot day!
This Sweet & juicy fruit is packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature. Watermelon is an excellent source of Vitamin C which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds, prevent cell damage, promote healthy teeth and gums;
& Vitamin A which helps maintain eye health and is an antioxidantand vitamin B6, which helps brain function and helps convert protein to energy. Also a good source of vitamin B1, magnesium, and potassium.
Did you know that Pink watermelon is also a source of the potent carotenoid antioxidant, lycopene. Which means these powerful antioxidants travel through the body neutralizing free radicals. Great Huh?
I also like it in Smoothies and served in little cubes with my lunch, great after a workout too!
This pretty fruit just SCREAMS "SPRING/SUMMER". AM I RIGHT?!!
