Beauty Gadget Junkie

My love for beauty gadgets have been known to be quite excessive.  If they make it, I will try it which brings me to sharing a couple of my favorites.  The Crystalift home microdermabrasion machine and the Lightstim.  The Crystalift is awesome! but a bit uncomfortable.  My skin is left soft with a feeling as if I have just had a in-spa treatment.  Unlike in-spa treatments I experienced no redness or irritation.  Crystalift is well worth the investment.

Lightstim is also a fav of mine, but takes a bit too long to cover the crucial facial parts.  I have been using the Lighstim along with the Lighstim serum for about 6 months now and the skin around my eyes seem to be a bit firmer which will keep me using.

Don't be afraid to make a fashion statement

How many times have you looked into your closet and thought "I have nothing to wear"? For many women this happens every day.  To everyone on the outside looking in, it appears your closet is overflowing with fashions, but because we tend to only wear our garments in a certain manner, we are unable to see how a pair of shoes, a jacket and accessories can turn your boring closet into overflowing ensembles.

Valentine Day treat that will impress

With Valentine Day around the corner and if your like myself and really don't have an interest in having the typical date night, create your own magical meal and finish it off with a delectable desert.  I'm a huge fan of cheesecake, dark chocolate and mint so I decided to incorporate the three into this low calorie (only if you eat one lol) dessert.

Enjoy!




Ingredients: (Makes 6)

Filling
1/2 cup cream cheese
3 Tbls fresh squeezed lemon
1/4  cup condensed milk
Optional fruit toppings


Chocolate Molds

You can use molds purchased at Michaels Crafts for $2-$5
 or get creative and use a mold from house hold item packaging.

Dark mint chocolate candy melts that can be purchased at Michaels Crafts or your local super market


Preparation Directions:

Place the chocolate in a zip lock bag and microwave for 30 second intervals until smooth and completely melted.  Once the chocolate is melted, clip the tip of the bag and pour the chocolate into each mold to the rim.

Place the mold into the refrigerator for 1-2 minutes until a shell is formed.  Pour out the melted candy from the centers and return the mold to the refrigerator to set completely.

Excess candy can be remelted and used again.

Once the chocolate has set, pop cups out of mold, trim excess candy from edges with a paring knife.

Using a hand mixer, mix cream cheese, condensed milk  and lemon juice until mixture is smooth.

Spoon mixture into cups and garnish with fruit or nuts.

Grate a piece of chocolate over the filled cups as a garnish.

Refrigerate until ready to eat! Pin It Now!
