Hello everyone! A couple of months ago, I used the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub and Moisturizing Lotion. I bought the products at Walmart for a few dollars each.. They were inexpensive. The facial scrub smelled really good, and I did like the bursting beads in it. The lotion, however, made my face sting. I kept on using the products for a few more days, and finally I realized I was allergic to them. Yeah.. I am not sure what exactly was going through my head when the lotion was burning so badly, and I continued using it. Ha ha. Anyways, I had a huge rash on my face, which went away in about a week. Well, a few days ago my cousin came into town. I decided to give her the Clean & Clear products, since I could not use them. And yes of course, I warned her. So, she loved the products! It's amazing how some people break out to some products while others do not. I guess I just have sensitve skin, but if you have used Clean & Clear products before and they worked well for you... then you may like it. They smell good (citrus) and they are inexpensive. My choice skin care system is Clinique. Stay tuned for that review!

Helloo! I just wanted to let everybody know that I have a Youtube account now. I have posted two videos on there about yoga, so check it out. There will probably be more videos to come. Please remember that I am a beginner! Ha ha so don't expect my arms to be twisted around my back touching my toes... There is also a new "idea" on my blog. There is a "Google Idea of the Week." I have a new topic that you can search every week that has interesting results. I search the idea, too! So, this week was healthy breakfast recipes. I have been eating the best oatmeal this week! I know people may think that oatmeal is disgusting, but I love it and it keeps me full. Go out a give Quaker Take Heart Oatmeal with blueberries a try people. Namaste!

Hey everyone. Today is the one year anniversary of Heath Ledger's death. I am a big fan of his movies, because he does such a good job in each one. It is really sad that he will never make another one, but I think that we should focus on the good. So, I want to celebrate some of the fantastic movies he has starred in. Watch and enjoy!
- The Dark Knight: This movie was definitely the best movie of the summer, maybe even the year. Heath did an amazing job as the Joker in this Batman movie. I have watched it 4 times!
- 10 Things I Hate About You: I love this movie! This is one of Heath's earlier movies. It was made in the 90's, but that makes no difference in how funny this chick flick is. Well, even guys like this movie.
- The Knight's Tale: A good movie that has action and humor. He also looks pretty good in this one, too!

I have recently started attending yoga classes, and I really love it! Yoga makes me feel very relaxed, and I am able to clear my head of all the problems surrounding me. I know that a lot of people have no time to go to a yoga class, so I will just tell you about the yoga breath and the mountain pose.
The Complete Breath: It allows you to breathe in so much more oxygen that a normal, shallow breath from your chest.
- While sitting, relax completely on an exhale. Inhale, let your abdomen push out and begin to fill.
- As your abdomen fills with air, expand your ribs and back, and fill your middle with air.
- Still inhaling, fill your upper chest area.
- To exhale, suck in your abdomen and let out that air, then the air in your middle, and then your upper chest.
- So you are exhaling in the same pattern that you inhale: lower, middle, upper.
- Practice this breath to the following count: Inhale to a count of 6; retain the breath for a count of 3; exhale to a count of 6. Practice for about 5-10 minutes.
Samasthiti (Mountain Pose): Stand with your arms at your sides, and push shoulders back and down. With your arms at your sides, pretend like you are reaching for the floor. Put heels, big toe joints, and knees together. Engage muscles in the thighs, and balance weight of the body on both feet. Practice your breath with this pose, and be sure to clear your mind of any distractions!

Hello everyone! Today is a very important day, because we have a new president! I think that President Bush did a good job considering the circumstances, but I am interested to see how President Obama will change our country for the better. And in beauty news... I bought the Guess by Marciano perfume several months ago. The fragrance has notes of musk, vanilla, raw wood, star fruit, grapefruit, jasmine, and dulce de leche. It is more of an evening fragrance, or something to wear out, because it has a very sophisticated scent. I have been using this perfume for a while, and the 1.7 oz bottle is nowhere near empty. Speaking of the bottle, it is very elegant and sexy with the floral pattern and gold color. This fragrance turns heads, so go check it out at your nearest department store! Peace and love!!

Hello! 2009 has given me a newfound inspiration to begin blogging again! There are so many things I want to write about, like beauty products, skin care, exercising, and music. The list literally goes on and on. My goal is to update at the very least, twice a week. Over the past several months, I have found products I adore and some that just don't work very well. I look forward to writing, and helping people look and feel better!
