Twenty Seventeen

It's a new year and with New Year's come resolutions and the hope to improve our selves, our actions and way of life. To start of the year, I have listed five resolutions to get me back on track to living healthy and well. In addition to my new year resolutions, I have a few goals that I'm working on and hoping to reach by the year's end! What resolutions are you making to start off 2017?

1. Wake early and tackle my day starting with a nourishing breakfast. 
2. Better my prayers and religious knowledge.
3. Keep up with my daily workout. 
4. Be more informed. Read the news and novels. 
5. Become more involved in the community and contribute my time

Garfield Park Conservatory

Whenever the temperature drops to freezing and the wind chill becomes painful, I cherish escapes to the Garfield Park Conservatory from the cold dreary winter weather.

The conservatory is about a 20 minute drive west of the loop and is filled with warm wonderful rooms brimming with plants of all sorts. While the fern room, desert room, and more are consistent and present year-round, the showroom changes seasonally.

This season it's called Sky Forest and it's filled with a hundreds of poinsettias,  endless hanging fir trees and an aroma that reminds me of a yummy holiday candle. If you haven't visited GPC yet, you must! It's size and vastness alone is a treat.

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet

I love lipsticks that provide great color and keep my lips looking bright and feeling hydrated. Giorgio Armani and Influenster sent me two colors of the new Lip Magnet lipsticks and I am loving them so far. Lip Magnet is a liquid lipstick that glides on like a lip gloss and then gradually evaporates to provide a high intensity color that has such a smooth texture and feels weightless. It really does feel like second-skin when on! 

I received the colors in 400 "four hundred for all" and 505 "second-skin." The former is a neutral pink and the latter is a pretty red hue.

The Lip Magnet finish is about four times thinner than an alternative liquid lipcolor (40 to 10 micrometers) and can last up to 8 hours.
