4 Must Haves For Vacation Travel

Posted on Updated on

These two thirty one bags are easy to pack and carry tons of stuff, must haves for me and our vacation.  I was able to make this small duffle like bag (with no top) flat and packed into the suitcase and could use it to bring our sunblock, towels, extra clothes to the pool, without worrying about carrying a bunch of heavy stuff.  My polka dot bag, just made traveling so simple with the inside and outside compartments.  You can shop these products here.

My two Thirty One Bags


My Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream with SPF 15 was all I needed for cover up.  No heavy foundations in that humidity in Punta Cana or in Florida where I live, just sheer coverage with sun protection.  And Mascara, all I need to brighten up my eyes.  Flamed out and lovely, thank you Cover Girl and P&G.

Stella & Dot, Making Women Feel Fabulous!

Posted on Updated on


I ordered earrings from Stella & Dot but what I received was an experience. Their packaging comes very personalized with messages like, “You’re Gorgeous, Tres Chic and Hey There Beautiful.”  Even though I made this purchase for myself it felt like someone was sending me a gift.   It made a moment in my day, stand out, I felt special and I did indeed feel Fabulous just like the little thank you note said.


The packaging is creative, warm and Tres Chic itself.  As for the earrings I ordered, well THEY were beautiful and I can’t wait to rock them.


After having my experience opening my cute little package, I decided to look into who was behind this Stella & Dot, what are they about?

Jessica Herrin worked in corporate America and in 2003 she started Luxe Jewels from her Living Room.  (She’s also known for her very popular In 2007 Blythe Harris joined as a partner and they re-named the business after their grandmothers, Stella & Dot.  How cute is that?! Jessica wanted a business where she was her own boss and managed her own calendar.  As a mother, she understood the struggle women faced in a regular 9 to 5.  She created a business where similar to Mary Kay, women could be entrepreneurs and create careers in which they are their own boss.  There is a wonderful interview with Jessica on Maria Shriver’s blog, you can find that here:

I highly recommend the tips she shares on her time management.  So many of us juggle various hats and roles in our lives and she hits it on the nail  describing how we can better manage our duties and realize that not everything is that important.

If you haven’t yet experienced a purchase from Stella & Dot, check out my fabulous stylists site, The Fabulous Leslie Gil, at

Happy Shopping!

Yoplait Whips (Yogurt Mousse) Review

Posted on Updated on

chocolate whips yogurt back yogurt whips

Yoplait Whips are DELICIOUS!!!!! Have you tried them yet?  If not, what are you waiting for? They are soooo good.  These yogurt whips are fluffy, light yet very filling.  My favorite is the Key Lime Pie.  When I eat this yogurt it truly feels like I am eating a delicious slice of actual Key Lime Pie.  It’s a little piece of heaven and very satisfying.  Their tagline hits it on the money, It is so good!  No High Fructose Corn Syrup and Gluten free.  Under 200 calories, make sure you give this treat a try!  Let me know your thoughts if you try this. I highly recommend.
