Au Revoir 2010~*

Up. Down. All around.
Been all over the place (Physically, Mentally, Emotionally).
It's been a fun, happy, sad, frustrating, scary, educational, exciting, blissful and blessed year.
Thanks for the memories 2010 (and all the people, places I've  encountered throughout the year)~*

Wishing everyone a wonderfully blessed, blissful, and bangin 2011!
Cheers to Health, Wealth, and Happiness!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
-William Arthur Ward

*~ Have a Beautiful New Year ~*

The Power of Prayer

"Prayers go up, and Blessings come down"
-Yiddish Proverb

This has been a pretty crazy year  (when in my world is it not, right?).
Another rollercoaster of a year filled with ups and downs~
However, this year was a lot more bearable during the down times.
I believe this is because of the power of prayer.

Over the past few years, my spiritual life has grown in many different ways, but this was the first year where I felt I truly lived differently.... and could actually see the outcomes.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream

Earlier this year, I discovered an amazing product at the L.A. Makeup Show.
I didn't really use the product until recently~ I'm officially in Makeup Love.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams have recently became a new favorite and have been added to my must have list.

Love Nest- Josie Maran's Argan Oil Favorites

Yay~ The Holidays are here!
There's Good (Holiday Lights, Holiday Cheer), there's Bad (Long lines, Traffic), and there's UGLY (There are some mean Grinches out there in the world!).

One of my favorite parts of the Holiday Season is..........the SHOPPING!    =D
More specifically, I love the gift sets that come out during the Holiday~ They're usually a really good products,  don't come out the rest of the year, and you'll usually get the most bang for your buck.
For one of my Secret Santa/White Elephant gift exchanges this year, I bought the Josie Maran Love Nest.
(I  maaaay have also bought one for myself, too.....)

Tiger Balm~ It's Grrrrrrreat!

I remember when I was younger, I would walk into various Asian friends houses and always see a small hexagon shaped jar with a tiger on it.
Curiously, I would open it up, and then quickly close it after taking a whiff of the strong, pungent camphor/menthol smell.
It wouldn't be til years later that I discovered how awesome this smelly little product was.
I bought a jar of Tiger Balm at the Dollar Store out of curiousity a few years ago.
I was first able to test it out when I was renovating my house, moving in with my cousin, and moving into a new apartment~ all within a few months. 
It was one of the most stressful times of my life ... both mentally AND physically.

After carrying TONS (and I mean TONS) of clothes, boxes, and all my other little chachkas (NO ONE is allowed to use the word C*** or S***.... except for me) back and forth, back and forth, my muscles were killing me.
Tiger Balm.... I would not have survived without you.
