Ladies, take your multivitamins

Although we try to eat healthy foods, it is very likely that most of us aren't getting all the vitamins we need on a daily basis from our food. A multivitamin will provide you with much needed vitamins and minerals. Calcium is a vitamin that many women do not get enough of. Calcium helps to prevent osteoporosis and helps maintain healthy bones and teeth. It is also important for women of child bearing age to take a multivitamin containing folic acid. Folic acid can help prevent birth defects of the baby's brain and spine even if taken before you are pregnant. It also keeps your blood healthy by aiding in the production of red blood cells. Ladies, take your multivitamin and stay healthy!

Classy ways to wear mesh on your dress!

Sheer mesh is HOT right now in evening wear! If you're not careful though you could end up looking trashy instead of classy. Here are the correct styles you should look for when going for a sexy evening look!

Sheer sleeves on a little black dress is super seductive.

Embellishments make even a sheer bottom look elegant.

Less mesh is better with bright colors.

A sheer shoulder is super sexy. Nude lining under a long sheer skirt is exquisite.

Small inlays of mesh on the side look hot without showing too much skin.

Red Wine for the Holidays!

Opt for red wine over sugary cocktails this holiday season! You will save calories in the drink department and feel less guilty about eating your favorite holiday foods!

5 Travel Must Haves

This time of the year so many of us travel far and wide to see loved ones. Here are my top 5 travel must haves when flying high in the sky!

1. Blistex Lip Medex

Keep your lips chap-free with the best (in my opinion) Blistex formula! Moisturizes and cools to keep your pout pretty.

2. Aluminum Water Bottle

Fill up your reusable canteen after you get through security. It's important to stay hydrated at high altitudes on the plane. (Environmentally friendly too!)

3. Pashmina Scarf

A nice big soft scarf can also double as a blanket! Not to mention, it can be worn so many different ways that it's quite fashionable too!

4. Hand Lotion

The air gets super dry when you're up high. Make sure your hands stay properly moisturized with lotion. (3 oz or less of course!)

5. Fruit & Nut Mix

Always travel with a healthy snack! You can munch without guilt while getting a serving of fruit and protein!
