Downtime With The Girls

Ladies, you know what? We spend way too much time fussing over things in life, which are only going to make us more stressed, more anxious and more tired.

Sure, we all have huge commitments like work, school and maybe even kids, but that doesn’t mean we should neglect our girlfriends, no ma’am!

In fact, spending some quality time with the girls can actually help us to relax and give us a much needed break, and so you should never, ever underestimate the value it can bring.

But just how should you let your hair down and really let loose?

Here are just a few ideas to help you actually start to chill:

Play Games

Have you ever sat there wistfully dreaming of the good old days when you were a little kid?

The freedom it brought, and the carefree attitudes you had?

Most of us would kill to go back to simpler times, and although we can’t turn back the clock, there may well be ways to regress. Cracking open a trusty old bottle of wine with your gal pals is easy enough and then all you have to do is unleash the laughs! From Twister to board games, you can recreate the sleepovers of your teens. If you’ve got money to burn, you can even take the party elsewhere. Vegas, anyone? Failing that, you can bring the casino to the ‘casa’ and get in a little practice with bgo! There are loads of different online gaming sites you can use to have a giggle such as Costa bingo or even Party bingo, but bgo really gives you that true Vegas feel!

 Eat Together

Food is essential for life, right?

But in reality, it’s so much more than that!

Eating is a social activity whether you’re dining out or eating in, so why not indulge a little as a treat all together? Whether you book a table at the hottest restaurant in town, order in a pizza or even cook or bake with each other, there’s a lot of fun to be had, and a lot of deliciousness to be enjoyed!

Take A Class

Whether you want to expand your mind or your skill set or just have a laugh, there are a whole load of easy classes you can take with friends.

Of course, you don’t want to stretch yourself even further than you already are, but providing you’ve got a healthy distraction on the go, there’s no harm in in at all.

Fitness classes are especially good fun, and it’s never too late to get involved. Ballet classes and the like aren’t just for kids, there are tons of benefits both to your health and socially!

You could even learn self-defence together – now that’s practical, and super kick-ass!

Travel

If money and time allows, there’s absolutely nothing like a weekend away with the girls, or even a nice long vacation.

From spa retreats to beach resorts, hiking to exploring, the world is a big old place and so we’ve got to get out there and see it. 

There’s no better way than with friends, and you’ll make enough memories to last a lifetime!

My Ride Into The Future With Sidekick Wheels | By The Editor

You’ve probably seen it, you’ve probably wondered what it is, and you probably have wanted it.

As years pass us, and as time constantly feels as though it is flying by us, it seems as though things more ‘futuristic’ keep coming out. Everything just keeps on becoming more and more advanced as time moves on.

I’ve seen a ton of posts about this, and a ton of people have asked me questions about in regards to what my favorite “electric scooter” is, and why.

From the I O Hawk to the Glidr, and many others, my favorite so far would have to be Sidekick Wheels.

Purple

Sidekick wheels not only comes in a different variety colors, for guy or girl preference, but what I love most about them is that the entire company is extremely committed and passionate about giving you the ability to no longer have to transport on foot from point A to point B.

They honestly truly believe in making a difference in the world, and a world of difference with Sidekick Wheels.

If you don’t know much about Sidekick Wheels, they actually run for 9-12 miles in one single charge and they have the ability to reach speeds up to 8 mph, which is pretty awesome if you ask me.

Here are a few of my favorite Sidekick Wheels:

New Music Monday: Introducing Darlene Love

c600x600

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

If you’ve been reading the blog for quite a while now, you more then likely know how I love talking about new music that i’m into, and new artists that i’ve happened to stumble upon.

It seems like I always have a few new songs in my Itunes Library at least three days out of the week, and that’s usually one or two new artists per week.

Yes, aside from having a passion for blogging, i’ve always felt like music is next to being my second favorite ( you also may know from different interviews that i’ve done, that I use to be a ‘Stache Lifestyle Rep’ for RED when I was 21, which is a division of Sony ).

Anyways, this Monday, I wanted to share with you all who i’ve recently been tuning into over these past few weeks, and that has been the extremely talented ‘Darlene Love‘.

If you haven’t heard of Darlene, she is actually the legendary backup singer and the focus of the film in “Twenty Feet From Stardom”.  She also was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2011. The New York Times has called her “a thunderbolt voice embedded in the history of rock n’ roll…”.

With that being said, recently, i’ve downloaded multiple songs off of her new album that released in September called “Introducing Darlene Love” and let me tell you that Darlene has one powerhouse of a voice! That women can sing her heart out.

8fbe79acfc94e9357a2a95e03746e5fe

Her new album actually features songs written by Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Jett, Jimmy Webb, and many others. Elvis Costello and Bruce Springsteen both contributed two tracks each to her album, which is AWESOME.

My favorite songs off of her album are:

1. Forbidden Nights (Elvis Costello)

2. Little Liar (Desmond Child/Joan Jett)

3. Last Time (Stevie Van Zandt)

4. Jesus Is The Rock (That Keeps Me Rollin) (Stevie Van Zandt )

darlene_love

Not too long ago as well, here in Los Angeles, I actually went to see a concert, at which Darlene was performing at a venue called ‘The Whiskey’.

To my surprise, Stevie Van Zandt also played along side of her that night, which I was overly excited about.

I was blown away by the show, Darlene had incredible vocals, and honestly how can you go wrong with Stevie Van Zandt playing along with her, when she’s already so amazing?!!!

I’ll list her full track list below for you to check out, as well as links, and information on where you can download her album.

Tracklist:

  1. Among The Believers (Stevie Van Zandt)
  2. Forbidden Nights (Elvis Costello)
  3. Love Kept Us Foolin’ Around (Linda Perry)
  4. Little Liar (Desmond Child/Joan Jett)
  5. Still Too Soon To Know (Elvis Costello)
  6. Who Under Heaven(Jimmy Webb)
  7. Night Closing In (Bruce Springsteen)
  8. Painkiller (Michael Des Barres/Paul Ill)
  9. Just Another Lonely Mile (Bruce Springsteen)
  10. Last Time(Stevie Van Zandt)
  11. River Deep, Mountain High (Phil Spector/Jeff Barry/Ellie Greenwich)
  12. Sweet Freedom (Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil)
  13. Marvelous (Walter Hawkins)
  14. Jesus Is The Rock (That Keeps Me Rollin) (Stevie Van Zandt)

It’s Almost Thanksgiving | Weekend Home Inspo

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far, or sha’ll I say the end of your weekend.

I realized that I haven’t shared a few home inspirational images lately, so I wanted to catch up, and make a post about it again.

Lately, i’ve been trying to get my decor in the mood for Thanksgiving, but luckily Halloween + Thanksgiving have similar fall ‘colors’ in mind, so I really don’t have to take too many decorations down, thank goodness!

Here are a few Home Inspo images that have been catching my eye:

Inside My Choosy Chick Box | By The Editor

I am a fanatic for beauty products, like every other girl in the world.

However, my skin is also sensitive, and i’m usually very hesitant about trying out new product on my skin, especially when it comes to using product my face.

Recently, I tried out products from The Choosy Chick, and I was surprised what came in my box, when it arrived at my door step.

12191790_1014952595223743_4731737408719814621_n

Here is what I found inside of my box:

  1. Facial Cleansing Sponge-Green Tea
  2. Green Tea Plus Coffee Bean Eye Balm
  3. Au Naturale Cream Eye Shadow
  4. ILANG ILANG Organic Eau De Parfum Oil
  5. Orange Peppermint Shea Butter

Out of 5 of these products from The Choosy Chick, I would have to say that the Green Tea Eye Balm is my absolute favorite, especially because my eyes ALWAYS seem to be tired from being on the computer for so long.

Also, especially for you, I have teamed up with The Choosy Chick, and we are giving you 10% off of your first purchase using code: CHIFFONSOUFFLE at checkout!

Stopping That Time Of The Month Leakage With Poise Micro Liners + Liners | Now Available At Walmart

Every girl has that ‘time of the month’ that they just can’t stand, and that they know all too well.

I know that this goes for me, and i’m sure that it’s extra worse for new moms.

Earlier this month however, I talked about the fact that Walmart was having a promo for U By Kotex feminine care, however pads aren’t always the best solution, when it comes to feeling comfortable and happy in your own skin for your time of the month.

A better solution for me, is always Poise Micro liners & liners, because they are much more comfortable, less bulky, and it doesn’t even feel like you are wearing anything to stop that time of the month leakage. I am not about the bulk-age affect that you have when it comes to wearing pads.

Image55

Walmart is also currently allowing you to purchase Pose Micro liners & liners at the closest store nearest you.

Here is a $2.00 off coupon that you can use to purchase these liners.

Again, if you want to stop the leakage, not have bulk-age, and feel like you’re basically not wearing anything during that, horrible, horrible time of the month, then I suggest going the Poise way, especially if you are on the go all the time, like I am.

You can’t have leakage, when you are on the go.

I am a fan of Poise Micro liners & liners, and you should be too!

Which Summer Trends I Think Will Survive For Fall | By The Editor

It’s hard to believe that fall is almost over, and that December is basically right around the corner.

With trends, constantly coming and going, especially according to the fall season, you never really know what looks are going to come and go.

So, with that being said, I wanted to share with you guys a few summer trends that I feel are going to be staying in this fall season for the long run. I personally can agree with a few of these as well:

Let me know which summer trends you think are here to stay for fall.

  1. Maxi Dresses

I really feel like you can do no wrong with a good fashioned maxi dress. Even though it is fall weather, putting an awesome blazer, or a nice warm jacket over a maxi dress doesn’t hurt. I personally love layering a good quality jean jacket over one of my favorite maxi dresses.

Elle Magazine & Vogue Magazine showcase a few good ways to dress up a Maxi Dress as well.

2. Overalls

Overalls has always been one of my favorite trends. It’s a great style statement for a fall and summer look. You can wear overalls basically almost all year round.

3. Pleated Skirts

I feel like the pleated skirt trend can never go out of style. This can be a great fall look while wearing tights underneath.

4. Distressed Denim

Distressed denim is one of those trends that you can wear every season. There is nothing wrong with a few holes in your pants. It just makes this style more apparent.
