Outfit: Pink& Black

I have always had a big aversion for pink but recently I am reconsidering it and this outfit is a good proof. Summer weather recently is getting out of control. One day is super hot and another is super cold. 
I have been having this shirt in my closet since this winter ( it was on a huge clearance and i loved it, i had to get it and just wait for the perfect day to wear it). 
Luckily for me that day my hair decided to cooperate and look good in photos ( thanks Batiste dry shampoo for the extra volume effect).
The shoes are my newest summer favorite: Toms ! I like this model because they look a little more chic than regular Toms due to the "lace/crochet" design. They look amazing both with dresses and pants!

Ho sempre avuto una grande avversione per il colore rosa ma ultimamente mi sta passando e questo outfit ne è una prova.
Le temperature estive stanno dando i numeri ultimamente. Un attimo fa un caldo assurdo e quello successivo si patisce invece il freddo.
Comprai questa camicia in inverno e  l'ho tenuta appesa nell'armadio tutto questo tempo aspettano il giorno e il clima adatto per indossarla. Finalmente quel giorno è arrivato.
Fortunatamente per me quel giorno è arrivata e i miei ricci indipendenti hanno deciso di cooperare e  per una volta sono stati al loro posto ( ringraziamo lo shampoo secco di Batiste per l'enorme volume offerto).
Le scarpe sono un nuovo acquisto azzimatissimo per l'estate: toms! Le adoro perché sono molto versatili e comode. La trama uncinetto le rende perfette sia per look molto causal che un po' più impegnati e soprattutto vanno benissimo sia con pantaloni e gonne/vestiti.

Outfit: A Big Nude Skirt


HIII!!!!!
It was definitely love at first sight between me and this skirt. 
I was going trough the sale rack at H&M when i saw it and i just couldn't resist. I had already so many outfits in my mind when i saw it. 
The price tag made me fell in love with it even more: 9.90$. 
I decided to create a nude-white outfit with a long slowly skirt and a white top. 
I paired all with my pointed studded stilettos. 
They are very comfortable and i can walk in them for hours. 
I wore this outfit to a friend's graduation.
I really enjoyed the entire experience very much. 

CIAO!!!!!!
E' stato decisamente amore a prima vista tra me e questa gonna. Ero alla ricerca di qualcosa di simile da tantissimo tempo e stavo quasi per saltare di gioia quando l'ho trovata mentre passavo in rassegna il reparto saldi di H&M. 
Il prezzo poi è stato ciò che mi ha fatto decidere di prenderla subito: 9.99.
Ho deciso di creare un outfit sui toni neutri e bianchi. 
Ho abbinato a tutto le mie decollate basse nere . 
Sono tra le scarpe più comode che possiedo e riesco a starci per ore senza soffrire.

Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant



[powered by OZ Naturals]




 OZ Naturals FACE SCRUB EXFOLIANT utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping.
FINALLY A FACIAL SCRUB THAT contains lactic acid and alpha lipoic acid to further help the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
ANOTHER KEY INGREDIENT, green tea extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as tone and protect the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.
THE PRO-VITAMIN B5 IN OUR scrub is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin
SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and free of harmful ingredients.

OZ Naturals is a top seller on amazon.com and its easy to understand why.

Co-Founder and Certified Esthetician, Angela Irish launched OZ Naturals as a company that embodies everything she's passionate about -- healthy skin, anti-aging, natural ingredients, and utilizing the latest technology to formulate the highest quality skin care products on the market.

Utilizing her personal experience of skin issues, that she understands that when your skin is unhealthy it can negatively affect your self-esteem. After try tons of products over the years she was always left with the same skin issues as before. Sometimes even worse than before. Angela knows how disheartening this can be, especially when so many skin care products make huge claims, and simply do not deliver. It's especially frustrating when the cost of those products are hardly affordable, and you realize once again that you've wasted your money.

While it's true that beautiful skin is also hereditary, healthy skin comes from taking care of the inside and outside of our bodies. However, finding the right products for your skin can be the toughest part of the equation. This is why OZ Naturals was founded, to create healthy, premium skin care products to help those who weren't naturally born with perfect skin, to obtain more perfect skin. The kind of skin that everyone deserves to have.


My experience:
I am in love with Oz Naturals new product! This is a must have, especially if you are a fan of the Tachta Rice Enzyme Powder. It does just as good of a job (if not better) and is only a third of the price. If your not use to a exfoliant powder it takes a little getting use to as far as how much to use and how much water to mix with it. I have found though it takes very little to get an excellent and thorough clean. I have dry skin with some combination skin, and it does a good job at taking any dead flaky skin off without damaging my skin. As a person who is constantly trying out new beauty products, I was really impressed with the effectiveness of it. My only two complaints about the product which were more of a manufacturing issues were the fact that when I opened the box, I spilled powder everywhere that I believe was outside of the actual product.

Restful Sleep Review

                 [powered by Brandbacker]


Natural sleep supplement calms your mind, so you can wake up refreshed...but not drowsy.








Traditional Chinese Medicine herbs and essential minerals in Restful Sleep™ help to:

- Calm and quiet a restless mind and body
- Promote a full night’s restful sleep
- Nourish chi to bring harmony and balance into the body
- Promote calm throughout the day
- Restore vitality to the spleen and heart organ systems

Can’t fall asleep? Wake up several times during the night? Trouble feeling rested even after a full night’s sleep? Oftentimes an overactive mind is what keeps us from getting a full—and good—night’s sleep. But did you know your spleen is KEY to healthy sleep? That’s why Dr. Yan Ping Xu, certified practitioner of Oriental medicine and board certified herbalist, developed safe, non-addictive, Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement to help restore balance to your spleen’s—and whole body—chi (energy) so you can have a full night of restorative sleep and wake up refreshed, never drowsy.


Great sleep starts in the spleen…

Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine belief that sleep issues start with the spleen. That’s right—not the brain. Because in traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that when you’re having trouble sleeping, it’s your spleen’s chi that is off balance. In fact, in Chinese medicine, the spleen is a VERY important organ that every other organ in your body relies on. Here are just a few ways the spleen is central to your body—metabolism, digestion, even circulation—all of which can have an impact on your sleep.

The bottom line is, when your spleen chi is out of balance, you can experience worry, fatigue, anxiety, and restlessness—all of which can contribute to a poor night’s sleep! The good news is you CAN get your spleen’s—and your whole body’s—chi back in balance, and Restful Sleep can help.


Ancient Chinese herbs restore and rebalance chi for a good night’s sleep

The ancient herbal blend that the Chinese have been relying on for thousands of years to remedy sleep problems by rebalancing chi is called Yi-Fang. Restful Sleep’s formula uses the same exact Chinese herbs in Yi-Fang that have been used for over 2,000 years! And to make sure the herbs are pure and top quality, Dr. Xu personally selects each herb on her yearly trips to China, then makes sure each herb is processed, purified, and sterilized to remove any toxins—all done right here in the U.S.A.


Essential minerals absorb overnight, for overall health

But, not only has Dr. Xu included ancient herbs to rebalance your spleen chi, she’s also included modern-day nutrients to help prepare your body to accept the herbs. This includes calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

These nutrients help the herbs absorb into your body more efficiently so they can get to work even faster. And the best part is—unlike other traditional Chinese herbal remedies where you have to make some kind of herbal concoction or mix with tea (and the smell and taste can be awful)—she’s put all these potent herbs and Western nutrients into one daily dose of easy-to-take capsules!


Getting the most out of Restful Sleep

Restful Sleep provides a gentle, restorative sleep. It doesn’t knock you out like other sleep remedies. Dr. Xu knows that most people can’t sleep because they can’t stop thinking, so she created Restful Sleep to work like an “off switch” to a hyperactive mind. If you’ve have not been sleeping well for years, it may take a short while to achieve great sleep so you use it consistently for best results. Dr. Xu tells her patients to "keep taking Restful Sleep and in a couple of weeks you’ll see that you are sleeping longer and better than you have in years."  


A full night’s sleep, without the drowsiness

Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement provides the exact herbs your body needs to bring the spleen, heart, and entire body into harmony so you can switch off your mind and turn on a great night’s sleep—without waking up drowsy!

Plus, for even more calming of the spirit and help to balance your mood—both key for achieving a good night’s rest—try Dr. Xu’s Serenia alongside Restful Sleep. Taken together, these two botanical blends provide optimal support for a balanced mood, relaxed mind and body, and a great night’s sleep!


About Dr. Yan Ping Xu

As the popularity of and demand for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and herbal remedies continue to grow throughout the country, Dr. Yan Ping Xu brings to Healthy Directions a passion for healing based on years of experience studying TCM with deep roots that reach as far back as the Ming Dynasty.

Shanghai born and American educated, Dr. Xu is a highly respected and internationally recognized clinician. She is a Licensed Acupuncturist, certified practitioner of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and board-certified herbalist. At her state-of-the-art clinic in Boca Raton, Florida, Dr. Xu regularly treats world-famous sports figures, celebrities, politicians, and their families, as well as other doctors and health care professionals.

Dr. Xu grew up studying the classical botanical formulas of the Ancient Chinese Dynasties, which are treasured for their healthful, preventative, and anti-aging benefits. During her course of clinical practice, Dr. Xu observed that almost every person she treated was overscheduled and stressed, with their energy reserves and adrenal systems depleted and their immune systems overtaxed.

Working with some of America’s top chemists and scientists, Dr. Xu began to create her own vitamin formulas for patients, which included some of the most successful ancient traditional Chinese remedies found in every medicine cabinet in China, but modernized to meet the needs of today’s American lifestyle.

In China, Dr. Xu studied under Dr. He Jin Shen—the first Traditional Chinese Medicine PhD in China—to use TCM in the treatment of thyroid disorders. She also studied at the Yue Yang Hospital’s stroke and cancer units for integrative herbal medicine to enhance and support patient treatment. Dr. Xu has also been a guest lecturer at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and earned the Golden Touch Award from the Florida College of Natural Health in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Every year Dr. Xu returns to China for advanced training in various traditional Chinese medicine specialties and subspecialties from some of China’s most respected doctors, and in some of its greatest hospitals. On every trip she also examines the fields and farming techniques where many of the botanicals and herbs used in her formulas are grown.


My experience:
i liked these pills.I like the fact that they are natural and so i know what's getting in my body.
The main ingredient in this supplement is Astragalus, a Chinese Herb, which is known for it's health benefits for the Spleen! The Spleen can be negatively impacted by stress and worry, which in turn can make falling asleep, and shutting down the mind difficult! Astragalus helps the mind quiet itself, and promote rest, relaxation, and a good nights sleep! This sleep aid also has three essential minerals: Magnesium, Potassium, and Calcium. These minerals tend to absorb better at night, help the body rest longer, and support nerve function!

Restful Sleep is known to help aid relaxation, prolong the sleep cycle, and calm a restless mind. The suggested use is: Take 2 capsules 30 minutes before bedtime with a 4 oz glass of water. Do not exceed 4 capsules within a 24 hour period. What I do is take it 10-20 minutes before bedtime with a bottle of water, and then brush my teeth, and go lay down in bed! I have taken this supplement about every other day to see the differences in how I sleep and feel the next day! This supplement comes with 60 Veggie Capsules in a clean, easy to read bottle! That is a months supply!

Directions:Step 1: Clean your face of all excess oil and bacteria and pat dry. Step 2: Apply a thick layer of the Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud by smoothing the product onto the face. Make sure to cover the entire face and neck. Also, pay close attention to problem areas like the T-zone (forehead, chin and cheeks), which produce the most oil. Leave the mask on your face for approximately 15 to 20 minutes until the mask is dry. Step 3: Rinse off the mask with warm water and a washcloth. Be careful to remove the mask gently so as to avoid irritating the skin. Once the mask is fully removed, splash your face with cool water to close the pores. Re-apply the mask once a week or whenever your skin feels like it needs a beautifying boost. Step 4: Follow up the mask with a lightweight moisturizer to leave you skin supple and soft. We recommend using Adovia Day Moisturizing Cream.

My experience:
I had the opportunity to review a mud mask from Adovia, it is the Dead Sea Mud Mask and comes in a nice blue and white tube in 5.1 oz. size. Depending on how thin or thick you apply it, it claims to last about 30 uses or more. I use it twice a week and apply it generously, but still have a full tube. This mud mask has a very light scent and spreads like a cream. It is a greenish grey color and when it dries it does not crack or become uncomfortable.
This dead sea mud mask by Adovia is a product designed to clean your pores and prevent acne and blackheads. It comes already mixed so it will save you some time versus some other products. It is a very rich and smooth texture when applied on your face. It takes around 10 minutes to fully to dry so make sure you have some time when applying. While it dries, it creates a pretty nice cooling sensation so you know it's actually working.
I washed it off with warm water but you can also use a warm towel if desired. It left my skin pretty soft and not as oily as it was prior. I'll be using this at least once a week as to not dry out my skin too much.
