Top 10 Moisturizers.

Best Skin Creams

Moisturizing the skin is an important step in maintaining healthy skin. It is that vital final step in your skincare routine both day and night. It needs to be applied daily (both day and night) to keep skin hydrated and basically working properly. Moisturizers do so much more than hydrate; they protect sensitive skin and improve skin tone and texture.

EXPRESS GLAM: Fragrance for a Sexy Night Out.

You have spent hours upon hours getting ready for a hot night out on the town. You are dressed to the nines. Of course your makeup is looking better than ever and your hair has all fallen into place. One thing is missing though and you can't seem to put your finger on it. I know what it is. That perfect scent. Nothing goes better with a sexy night outfit for your hot night on the town than EXPRESS GLAM.


Feminine and fun yet luxe, this sexy new scent, the second for EXPRESS, draws inspiration from decades of trendsetting style. Making sure every fashion forward girl looks, feels and smells just as sexy and stylish as she wants to be, this fragrance is the finishing touch to your perfect night out look.

EXPRESS GLAM is definitely a fragrance to be worn out. It combines lush notes of black currant and mandarin vodka with florals like lily of the valley and sandalwood flower then adds creamy musk and white woods to become sexy and sultry. It is one of those scents that lingers and leaves them wondering in all the right ways.

Fragrance Composition

Top Notes: Black Currant, Mandarin Vodka

Mid Notes: Sheer Jasmine Petals, Lily of the Valley, Sandalwood Flower

Base Notes: Praline, Creamy Musk, White Woods

I love the combination of the Praline and Creamy Musk at the base of the fragrance. It gives it that downright sexy scent with the rest of the notes giving it the name it so deserves -- GLAM. It is the perfect accessory you don't want to be without.


EXPRESS GLAM comes in three sizes; 1.7 oz. for $44.90, 3.4 oz. for $59.90 and there is also a .33 oz. rollerball for $15.90. Doesn't it make the most glamorous stocking stuffer? Shop for EXPRESS GLAM at EXPRESS stores nationwide or at express.com.

Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 14.

This is the week where I hit a wall. I swear I am not making an excuse because I continue to put in all the work. I am following the program. I did my exercise and ate how I am supposed to. I will tell you at beginning of my post that this week on Nutrisystem, I did not lose any weight. I did not gain any either, but I am disappointed. I am worried that I hit a plateau.

I have had help with the dietician before, and I just sent off another email to her. I am sure I need to adjust my program and either add in more exercise or change up the program a bit. My body is probably used to the program at this point.

I do exercise a lot more than what is suggested. Nutrisystem suggests 3 - 10 minute activities a day. I walk (a brisk walk at that) for a full sixty minutes every morning. I also go to the gym at least 3 times a week for about 45 minutes and ride the bike and do the Cybex machines. On the days that I don't go to the gym, I walk another 30 - 40 minutes each evening. My evening walk has turned into more of an interval workout with a few minutes of jogging worked into the brisk walking. I am definitely getting my exercise in.

For any of you on weight loss programs, what have you done to work through that plateau? I am on track, but I still have those goals to reach. To this point, I have lost 22 pounds.
