Lets get ready for summer!!!

Have you already started "preparing" your body for summer?Or you are of those lucky and non lazy people that go to the gym and fights cellulite all year around?Well, I admit,I am a lil on the lazy side now,but there was a time when I used to go and work out five days a week,but now....Summer is getting closer and closer and I am in PANIC!!!I want to get my body in shape,tone those muscles a bit and yeah get the cellulite monster under control.
That said from tomorow I am on a diet (I will make a few blog posts and show you what I eat). Anybody wants to join me on my diet journey?
Now for working out routine I was searching around to find something that will inspire me and this is what I found on YouTube:

Just look at those abs!!!Jealous :D Now I also have a Tracy Anderson work out Dvd somewhere around the house just need to find it.It is very good and I used to work out by her routine a while ago.
Cellulite - that monster and (almost) every woman's number one enemy! I am not sure if you can really get rid of it for good (if someone knows the miracle treatement feel free to let me know) but I belive if you are consistent and disciplined with the help of right diet,work out and daily use of cosmetic products you can keep it under control and minize it.
There are soooo many creams,gels,lotions and what not to help you fight it,but the key is consistent use: every day use (once or 2 times a day depending of the product),proper few minutes massage to activate the circulation and after a while you will start to see results.
Here is the right way to apply your anti-cellulite treatments:
Also there are some hand massagers that can help you along the way
Now for the cosmetic part of the fight: There are milions of products on the market and its really hard to choose,but my absolute favorite is Nivea's Goodbye Cellulite
It is a really good drugstore product,the price is good (last time I payed around 9 euros for it).It works really well,and after just a few days of use I notice a small difference in how my skin looked and felt.Ofcource the cellulite didnt just vanish in few days but the skin apeared to be more firm,more toned and with continuous use  the results will show.(This one is to be applyed twice a day).The best way is to firs prepare the skin and body with a nice scrub of your choice to activate the circulation and that way skin will absorve the product.
(This is NOT a sponsored post,nor I am obligated in any way to promote this product,it is simply my favorite and I want to share it with you)

Here are some other products that can help you:

So thats about it for today,hope any of this can be helpfull for you.Tomorow is a good day for starting my diet so I will keep you posted :)
Have you started getting ready for summer?Any advice is more then welcome :)

"Designer" manicure


the objects of desire for so many of us.Classy,sexy, name it (oh,yes expensive!!). Well if you cant have the real deal and give hundreds of dollars or euros on a pair of these gorgeous shoes at least you can do this simple and cute manicure inspired by the famous stilettos:)

Really easy and all you need is basic colors - black and red (and a top coat). I will admit that I am a lil lazy to glue my nails on so I will wait a little and let my own nails grow.Also I think a more pointy shape would look nice.

What do you think? Will you try it?

Braids and pastel nails

Hello everyone! If you have long hair like me,maybe you often find yourself without ideas what to do with it.I really don like to use heat (curling and straightning irons) that often,cause my hair is very dry and I don't want to dry it out even more.But Spring hair trends this year really make it easy - Braids! They are so IN right now,and I could't be more happy.First they are so easy to make,you can wear them in a milion different ways,you can make your braids simple for a casual day to day wear or you can make it more elegant for a night out.They are great even for those "bad hair" days.Here is one hair tutorial I found today on YouTube by amazing LuxyHair.

Also here are some pics to get your inspiration :)
If you want to add a more romantic feel to your braided hairstyle just add a cute flower clip :)

Now,for the nails...I have always been a huge fan of dark nail polish - black,dark blue,deep brown,but lately I catch myself buying a few pastels.This week I chose a nice pastel green.

The polish brand is "Andreia" and this is number 3.It looks so pretty and fresh on the nail and my photos don't do it any justice,but I hope you can get the idea of the color. (Can't wait to get a good camera soon,be free to suggest me a good one if you know).

What is your favorite hairstyle for spring?Do you like braids?
Hope you all have a great weekend :)

Love and kisses:***

Nails of the Week: Blue Affaire

Hi everyone!Hope you are all having an amazing sunny Friday:) Yes the Sun is here,its still a lil cold,but,hey I am not complaining :) Today I will show you my two new favorite nail polishes,and I have been switching between these two babies during the week.

This is "Andreia" in number 5 and it is a pretty baby blue color. The first coat goes a bit streaky but when you apply the second one its perfect. Now when you look at the color in the bottle it looks like it has a tiny shimmer,but on the nails it doesn't transfer.The only thing I hate is the brush,its so thin,but with the color like this I will try to look over that. This one was around 3 euros,if I remember right.

Now this one is LOVE :) It is "Yssy" in number 139, I bought it at China store for just 1 euro. I dont know how to describe it well,but I guess aqua,blue(ish)-green would have to do :) Again this is two coats,and it drys  super fast,which is a huge plus in my book since I don't have the patience to put base and top coats. I fell in love of this color and all I do is stare at my nails :)

What are your favorite polish colors of the moment?
