One of the things I love about spring, is that it is time to bring out my spring clothing. I can get rid of the darker, heavily clothing and start wearing colorful, lighter items. A favorite of mine is spring scarves. It is such an easy way to really make my outfit stand out. I can easily wear a basic plain colored fitted tee with a scarf, and it looks like I really put an effort into my outfit. The big problem I have though is that the selection in the stores is so limited. There always seems to be just a handful of scarves in either colors or patterns I am not looking for. Scarves.net is an amazing website I have found. This site carries the biggest selection of scarves I have seen at such affordable prices.

About the book:
Lemon Curd is a love story between the righteous and opinionated Anna Lisa Gibson and her arrogant British officemate, Neil Scott Whittaker. He can have any woman he desires but Anna Lisa's honesty and down to earth personality makes him fall in love with her. Except that he doesn't want to give up his fiancée and she doesn't want to have an affair with a soon to be married man. Yet romance is only part of this story. From the streets of Los Angeles to the streets of London, Lemon Curd depicts the millennium lifestyle - Women's position in the business world, the workaholic and multitasking attitude of our society and the difficulty of balancing family and work life while trying to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
We all have something that we love or puts us in a good mood. It could be anything! For me I have a lot of things, like running, friends, shopping, books. Yay! Life! is such a fun company with a positive message that helps you to embrace the things you like in life. This company creates magnets and car magnets. Each magnet is made with bright colors. Yay! Life! sells so many different magnets that you are guaranteed to find one that suits you.

A fun thing about being is lady is that we get to feel pretty. But it is so easy to get caught up in your life and forget to do little things that make all the difference to you. Feeling pretty can make you have a fabulous day. There is a company named Pretty Girl Makeup that will make you feel just like a pretty girl. The company was founded by Christina Fuch, a FORD makeup artist who knows exactly what it means to be a pretty girl. She has created a high quality makeup and body care line.

When I think of luxurious, high quality makeup products, I do not really associate those products being eco-friendly or natural. And neither did Josie Maran which is why she created Josie Maran Cosmetics. This company creates makeup, skincare, brushes, and hair products. Plus this company is always supporting wonderful causes throughout the world. Josie Maran Cosmetics is a new company to me, but I am already loving every bit of it.

I receive lots of packages. Between receiving products to review, prizes I have won in giveaways, and things I have bought online, it really adds up. Most of the packages I receive are delivered through the postal service. This means that my mailman has to deliver a lot of boxes to me. Now if the package fits in the mailbox, GREAT! Stick it in there. I have no problem with that. That way it is completely safe if it starts to rain.
Since I am on the go during the week, I rely a lot on protein/energy bars to keep me going strong. I am sure you all have heard of Balance Bar and maybe you have even tried their bars before. I am always switching up bars, so I eat Balance Bar's products pretty frequently. They actually just created a new product called nimble, which is unlike any other bar out there. Balance Bar says that nimble is the first nutrition/energy bar for woman with a beauty bonus.

After a long day, bath time ends up being my favorite part of the day. It is so nice to soak in warm water, relax, and have some much needed me time. I always have to add something to my bath water, because I love the good smells those kinds of products give off. I recently was able to try Simply Bath Salts. This is a no frill company whose main purpose is to provide high quality organic bath salts. This company has over 20 different scents and really knows how to make a one of a kind bath salt.

Where I live, our Joann Fabrics store recently moved to a bigger store. It is the biggest craft store around here now, and they carry so much stuff! I have said this before, but I really do not have an artistic talent. When I have some free time though, I do like to do something artsy every now and then. So when I saw this template from a company called Social Artworking, I had to buy it. Then this kit has a canvas art pattern and graphite paper that allows you to just trace the pattern onto your canvas. It is perfect for people who cannot draw very well, but still want to create something that they can be proud of.
You know you neeeeed it... Well a great group of bloggers have come together to give it to you!

Since my first half marathon race is only 3 weeks ago, I have been running a lot more to be ready for it. Lucky for me, it has been so warm where I live, so I have been able to run outside.

They let you look good and feel good while working out. This is the best site I know of to shop for fitness clothing.

I did not know such a thing as Lip Appreciation Day existed. But today is the day! I thought it would be fun to share some facts you may not have known about in honor of it.
If you are a lady, I know this has happened at some point to you before. You buy a gorgeous pair of heels to wear. After you start wearing them for awhile, they start to really hurt your feet and you have to them off now. Sound familiar? I know it has happened to me before. It is such a pain to have to carry around another pair of shoes to wear when my feet are done letting me wear my heels though. Lucky for us ladies, After Flats has solved the problem.

If I am going to buy a new product, I like to read real people’s reviews before I purchase it. There are just so many products out there that I like to see what other people have said about it. I found this awesome beauty app called Total Beauty and is filled with people’s unbiased review of products. This app has over 45,000 products listed and 280,000 reviews! This app is available for iPhone or Android phones.
I have actually only gotten into mineral makeup not too long ago. I remember one day I was at the store and spontaneously decided to try some out. Since then I have tried different brands to find the perfect makeup for me. I think I have tried my favorite mineral makeup yet. All of Jenulence offers makeup that is 100% natural, biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and never tested on animals. Plus their makeup works so well and lasts me all day.

Spring is not too far away, and I cannot wait. It will be such a relief when there will be no more cold weather. We will be having spring temperatures here in Illinois these next couple of days. I am very excited about that, so I figured I would share why I am so excited about spring.

If you have not heard of CafePress before, you have been missing out. This online store has all my favorite characteristics. There is a huge selection, there is something for everyone, you are able to personalize/customize a lot of items, you will find items that are not sold in stores, lots of unique items, deals are always going on, and the prices are affordable even without the deals. I cannot even begin to list all the products CafePress sells because there are just WAY to many. I was able to review three different items which will give you a little idea on the different products this company sells!
