I love ice cream! I could eat ice cream every night except for two problems…it is too fattening and it makes my stomach hurt!
I have been on the hunt for the last few years for a tasty low fat ice cream that does not make my stomach hurt. Eureka…I think I have found it! Halo Top ice cream is a low fat all natural ice cream that tastes great! You can eat the entire pint for only 240-280 calories depending on the flavor. They have several flavors and so far I have tried lemon cake, mint chip and birthday cake. They are all fabulous!
I don’t know how they do it but, the lemon cake tastes just like a lemon pound cake and the birthday cake tastes like it should have a candle on top of it because it tastes so much like a birthday cake!
I have to give credit to my daughter. She is the one who told me about this ice cream. Apparently, it is all the rave on social media! So if you are like me and you love ice cream try Halo Top ice cream. It has all the flavor and so far no tummy ache!! There is only one problem…it is a little hard to find, so go to their website hereto find a location near you. I was able to find Halo Top at the Ralph’s in the Marina Del Rey area.
I could not wait to style my new African print handbag from my visit to Nappywood- see post here. I knew it would go well with my favorite blue suede shoes and this “little black dress”. I love when a plan comes together!
The shoes are oldies but goodies from Ann Taylor. The little black dress is also an old favorite from Talbots. I try to buy things that will last for many years. If you love it, you will wear it over and over again!
My jewelry is from a vendor I found in Leimert Park. It went well with my African accessories theme! I also featured this set in an earlier post on Black and White Style, here.
I hope you enjoyed this short Work it Wednesday post! To all of my teacher and administrator friends, I want to wish you a happy first week of school. Educators rock!!
So what and where is Nappywood you ask?? Nappywood is a natural hair and lifestyle expo held annually here in Los Angeles! This past weekend I attended this highly anticipated event and I had a great experience! Continue reading →
A few weeks ago I visited two very hot spots-Las Vegas and Palm Springs! The temperature was well over 100 degrees in both places and the sun was super bright! I was so glad I had UNSUN-a mineral based sunscreen designed for all skin types. I was given the product to try and share my opinion on my blog.I know that I should use sunscreen to protect my skin from the damaging effects of the sun. However, I hate to use it on my face because of the oily white residue it leaves behind. Fortunately, UNSUN is a tinted facial sunscreen that goes on smooth and blends in without leaving a white residue even on my darker skin tone. Continue reading →
When I have an opportunity to get together and celebrate… I go all out! This month it was my turn to host book club, so it was the perfect opportunity to plan something fun! Occasionally, we don’t read a book and have an “activity” instead-don’t judge us, LOL! Paint and sip parties are very popular now but usually you have to make reservations well in advance and it can be very pricey to rent a private space for a small group, so I decided to host my own paint and sip party right at home! Here is how to host your own paint and sip party:Continue reading →
I finally made it to The Broad! A few weeks ago I took a day off for a MEcation (a vacation all by myself). I originally planned to go on a weekend with the hubby. However, tickets for the weekend were booked for months. So I decided to take advantage of a weekday opening and head to the museum on my own! Continue reading →
I am only 5′ 2″ so when I find a maxi dress in a petite length I grab it! I was excited to find this dress at the Banana Republic outlet store. It was 40% off and most importantly, it was the perfect length! Continue reading →
There is so much to discuss when it comes to hair! I could do several posts on just this topic alone. There are hundreds of blogs and videos dedicated to talking about natural hair; although, there is not as much information on natural hair AFTER 40. There are definitely some unique challenges we face with our hair as we age. While I am certainly not an expert on natural hair, I can share my experiences and challenges I have faced going natural after 40.
About a year ago, out of frustration with my thinning damaged and relaxed hair I decided to do the “Big Chop” and cut off all of my permed hair. Continue reading →
I was never a beauty product gal, I was more of a soap and water kinda chick! However, over the last few years I feel like my skin and hair care needs are definitely changing. I find myself browsing the beauty aisle a lot more and looking for products that will work to keep my skin and hair healthy. Luckily, my skin is not too sensitive so I am able to experiment with different products. However, everyone’s skin is different so you definitely have to find what works for you. I started experimenting with a few tips from my dermatologist then I went to ULTA beauty to browse their hugh selection of products.
I am often asked about my skincare routine and I wanted to update you on my natural hair journey. I thought I would share some of my favorite products in a three part series on skin, natural hair, and make-up.Continue reading →
Finding the right summer shorts can be a challenge! As I get older, it seems like the shorts are getting shorter! Just this past weekend I was shopping for a pair of shorts and found some that had a 5 inch seam. I thought, yes…finally, shorts that should be long enough! It was much better than the 3 inch and 4 inch seams that I had come across early that day. Continue reading →
