Turbo-Fire kicked my butt

Hi my beloved readers,

It has been a while since I posted a blog, I feel terrible of not having the time to have done so. I have done a lot of stuff in this mean while. I enjoyed the x-mas period, did some shopping, I enjoyed my B-day and finally decided to do my big chop on 24th of Dec-12 (I was transitioning for 5 months).  But I will evolve myself in the next blog about my transition process and my big chop and the whole experience. I am also thinking of a haul where I will show you all the shopping I did.

This post is all about my new experience which is the Turbo Fire exercise program *. It is an intense conditioning program that is scheduled for 20 weeks. The program is focused on the HIIT; which means High Intensity Interval Training. It is designed to work in your body aerobic and anaerobic energy release in your body. This means exercising at your max in up to 1 minute interval. This method shifts your metabolism into calorie burn mode. I know it is some mind cracking theory  :D
Check the link below if you want more insight info.

I wanted the program for a long period already, because I have done the P90X** and saw biggg results also started the Insanity** but was not at the level of doing it yet,  so I saw nearly all of this great programs in Goisco (a local store) and bought the Turbo Fire kit.  It costs Nafl: 126, = but is worth the price for all you receive in the kit

My Turbo-Fire Kit
Took my before pictures and measurements, and hit the play button. I am in love with the program, the way it is scheduled to be done. Even a busy woman can do it without the excuse of not having time to exercise. There is a HIT dvd of 15 minutes, which kick your but in that little amount of time, and I’m seeing great results. Not only from exercising but also from adjusting my eating habits

 With these thoughts I would like to motivate you to start moving. Do some sort of exercise, to keep yourself in shape. Eating healthy does not mean starving or doing crappy diets. It is about doing smart choices, one step at the time.

I will keep you guys updated with my progress. I will be posting pictures of my journey to a better me.
So what exercise do you do? I would like to know what are you doing or planning on doing.

Share the fitness <3

20 Beauty Tricks Using Vaseline, No Seriously

I have found this interesting tricks, and thought I would share it with you guys, who knew that Vaseline can be so handy?  ;) I did..

20 Beauty Tricks Using Vaseline, No Seriously

Yes we are serious. You might be surprised of all of the things you can do with Vaseline!

1. It makes your eyelashes grow: Lather Vaseline all over your eyelashes overnight and watch them thicken, even without a prescription!

2. Soften dry and cracked elbows.

3. Dry cuticles: Store a mini-Vaseline container in your purse and use for emergency dry cuticle moments.

4. For kissable, luscious lips: Fall is a beast for drying out summery, dewy lips. Vaseline is there for you and your irresistible pout. You can also mix Vaseline with Kool-Aid powder and make a colored (and flavored) lip gloss.

5. Help your scent stick around: Softly rub Vaseline all over your perfume points (i.e. the cleavage, behind the ear, neck, and wrist) and your scent will last longer!

6. It is a misconception that Vaseline clogs pores, so smear it all over your face, neck and arms for softer skin.

7. Lipstick smudges: Spread a little Vaseline over your teeth and lipstick smudges be gone! This is an infamous tip used at beauty pageants.

8. To remove last night’s makeup: Apply some to a Q-tip and have a pretty day.

9. Perfect for an eye-shadow/blush boost: Apply some under your eye shadow for a glossy effect. Apply on the apples of your cheeks for a dewy glow. Mix with lipstick for a cream blusher!

10. It eases eyebrow plucking: Tame your eyebrows and lube up the under-skin so you can pluck with ease.

11. Prevent hair dye from seeping onto your forehead: Softly dab all over your hairline and keep that box hair dye from dying your forehead the color of your new hairdo.

12. To make your accessories look brand spankin’ new: New job interview or a hot date? Put a small dab on your shoes and shine away!

13. Hide Split Ends: Haven’t had a haircut since your budget only allows you go to Great Clips for a quickie? Hide damaged ends with a small amount on your ends.

14. Remove makeup stains for your clothes. Dab a little with a damp cloth.

15. To Prevent spray-tan streaks: Rub all over the backs of your knees, ankles and hands to prevent seriously frightening spray tan lines.

16. To get those O.P.I. nail polish bottles open: Make it easier next time and rub Vaseline under the cap. Easy to open the next time you decide to do an at-home pedi.

17. It’s your new exfoliating body wash: Mix with sea salt and come out of the shower feeling soft, and sexy.

18. Remove false eyelash glue from your lash line.

19. Can be used to smooth and soothe skin after shaving.

20. Lubricates ear lobes and helps make earring insertion easy and painless.

A tribute to Bob Marley

We Jammin Jammin

I went to this amazing concert @ the Janthiel Beach on 9th of November 2012, where I had the pleasure to see the concert of The Rootsriders with Junior Tecla as lead vocalist.The concert was a tribute to Bob Marley, where they sang all of his hits and more. It was an awesome concert I Enjoyed it to the maxxx.. Tamara Nivillac  did also sang some of the themes, which I loved very much like No woman no cry.  Bob Marley died but he will be never forgotten nevertheless hiss songs especially by the reggae lovers, he is the legend.

We went jamming all the way. I was accompanied by my friend Liza, she is not a big fan of Roots Reggae, but she did enjoy the concert a lot. I laughed when she told me;’ heyy I didn't know that I knew so many songs of Bob Marley :D ‘

The epic moment of this night for me was when I pushed to go up in front to take a picture of Junior Tecla, he jumped of the stage just in front of me and started jumping and singing and jamming like crazy, and I was able to join that bunch of enjoyment. waaww it was such a great experience.

Right now Junior Tecla is promoting his new single Aurora ta yora. I do encourage you all to buy this new song, and support our Dushi Korsou people, since it is a very great song.

Here is a sneak peak of the concert when Junior Tecla and Tamara Nivillac was singing No woman no cry.

Hope you enjoyed the post.

Ten Tips on how to start blogging

Welcome to my Blog 

This is my first post and yeeaasszz I am happy and with a great feeling of accomplishment.

As I did, there are a lot of other divas out there with the same passion but do not know how to start the journey.  So I thought this will be the perfect introduction for me and also my aspiring fashionista bloggers.

I have been thinking on starting this journey for somewhat 3 to 4 years. But just did not take the initiative to really put on a theme. I always had thoughts like, I don’t know what to blog about, or don’t know how to use the blogger page and if readers will read my posts… But I have overcome all this thought and now it’s the time.

For this post I did gather some easy but important steps that you can follow to start your own blog too. This post is not only for those who want to start, but also you whom already own a blog. These tips can help you refresh your way of thinking on your blog.

Here will follow some great ideas on how to start in a very simple but fashionable and interesting way;

1-10 steps on how to start Blogging.

  • 1. Take the step to start Blogging

This is a very important decision.   Decide to do it and stick to it within some time frame, for example every day or every week, continuity is very important. Your followers will want to read more and will expect it in some time bond. A non- updated blog is a death blog.
  • 2. Choose your blog site or your own domain name

 You can start by choosing your blog site such as,, or you can create your own domain name. This will make you appear as more professional and will make you stand out from the crowd. I am starting with But eventually I will step over to my own domain name. I do recommend to do it as soon as possible because, when your readers get accustomed to your blog from a blogger site, it may take a little effort from them to switch and adapt to the new side.
  • 3. Choose your topics, or the area of interest you will be blogging about

Ask yourself what are the topics you are passionate about, if you are not passionate about it, you will not stick to it.
  •             4. Take the time to write your topic

Your readers will forgive some grammar and over all mistakes, they do not expect it to be yet professional, but still some effort is highly expected in your writing. Take some time to double or triple check your post, make sure it is free of mistakes.
  • 5. A blog is about your own opinion

A blog is not a news post, it is to give your own precious opinion of your topic of interest. This is how your readers will relate to you.  It is your own visions that make your blog unique.
  • 6. Communicate with your readers

Your blog is a 2 way communication form. Don’t forget that your readers will be delighted with your respond to their review, comment or question. Communicating with your readers will build trust and loyalty. Interacting with your readers will make you more approachable.
  • 7. Read other bloggers post

This is not precisely to be a copycat, but it is important to be in contact with other bloggers. And also you will have some ideas what is happening around you out there, at least bloggers with writing on the same area of interest as you do.
  • 8. Give out loving links and or videos

Readers will be delighted to get some links covering your topic. It can be links of your own interest related to your topic.
  • 9. Out of ideas to blog about

A simple idea to stick with is your reader’s reviews, ideas and questions on your posts.  Tadaahh, in a fraction great topics to write about.
  • 10.Keep it fun, keep it simple keep it YOU

This is your key to a successful blog. Just be greatttt!!!
