The Surprising Beauty Benefits of Honey

Legend has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey…if it was good enough for Cleopatra, reason dictates that there must be some fantastic beauty benefits to honey.

Ole Henriksen Roll On Acne Clearing Solution

Ole Henriksen Roll On Acne Clearing Solution ($20) has become my secret weapon for a post-gym face cleanse. It’s super easy to use since it’s a rollerball (i.e. very sanitary – key after the gym), and it doesn’t smell or dry out my skin. It says to apply it before using a moisturizer, but I actually cleanse, apply moisturizer, and then use this as a spot treatment and never leave having a feeling of dryness.

Cereal You Can Actually Eat Guilt-Free

Am I the only one who could sit down and eat a whole box of cereal? I’m a total addict.

I am so jealous of people who have a private chef and a driver…there are no two things I want more (well materially speaking at least…)!! The biggest challenge for me to maintain a healthy lifestyle is my diet. You couldn’t pay me to miss a workout, but it is SO hard for me to buy/prepare nutritious meals that taste great and don’t get boring.
