With summer really just around the corner, the idea of short shorts, shorter skirts, and swimsuits has be a bit on edge. As someone who’s always struggled with weight, a part of me is always a bit loathe to see the summer rays peek through the clouds as June rolls around. It’s way better nowadays, since my boyfriend thinks I’m nuts and all that for having issues with it (hey, support is good!), but this year, I really feel like I need to get healthier. I was watching the latest webisode at Only In A Woman’s World, and it SO described my previous fitness attempts.

My goal is a lot less intense this time around — I want to incorporate exercise into my daily routine while reducing some more no-no foods/habits in my life. So, I’m not talking about spending half a day at the gym (I don’t think I could ever do that) or eliminating anything from my diet. It’s about making better choices (aka not drinking Starbucks everyday!). This is how I’m going to celebrate summer this year — as a huge motivator to kick my butt in gear. I’m also hoping to ease some of my beauty woes like under-eye circles, skin that hates me, etc. by feeling more energized, getting better sleep, and increasing my water intake. Continue reading →

5 Ways to Feel Beautiful for Less

Only a Woman’s World is all about making better choices and feeling good about yourself. Sometimes with all of the beauty products available, I forget there are simpler ways that I can do every day to make myself feel beautiful inside and out. These are just five of my favorites!

Drink more water. If you’re not drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, you’re not drinking enough to keep your body well hydrated. Drinking your daily dose of water keeps skin looking its best: supple, soft, and glowing.

Exfoliate regularly. Skin can look dull and tired when not all of your dead skin cells slough off, which is why regular exfoliation is key. You can use anything from a mild facial scrub to an at-home remedy. You can use products such as an aspirin mask (crushed aspirin mixed with a bit of water and honey) or just baking soda with a little bit of water to make a paste. All items you likely have at home, so you won’t have to spend big bucks to get great looking results.
