Products I Love

When I find a something I love, you’ll likely find me talking all about it to anyone who wants to listen.  Although I’m not getting paid to do these reviews, I’d like to use my blog as a platform to share products I recommend.

On today’s list we have:

Veggetti

Behold, the Veggetti!  I have so much fun saying that word. The Veggetti is a tool that allows you to make noodles, or “voodles,” out of vegetables.  It gives you the option of twisting your vegetable of choice (I mostly use it for squash and zucchini) into either thick or thin noodles.  One of my favorite dishes to prepare using the Veggetti is to sauté the voodles with garlic, salt, and pepper in olive oil.  Remember, when cooking with olive oil, cook at a medium temperature, since olive oil becomes carcinogenic when cooked at high heats.  You can even toss in some pre-cooked spaghetti (use a brown rice or quinoa spaghetti for gluten free options) and sauté along with the voodles and garlic.

Panache Sports Bras

For all you lovely, big-breasted ladies, this sports bra is life changing.  I speak from personal experience.  Any discomfort during exercise will be eliminated.  The bra can clip in the back to become a halter bra and there’s wiring under the breasts. There are distinct cups, so this bra even looks good under regular tees rather than creating the unattractive, uni-boob look. The bras usually cost around $68 and are completely worth every penny.

Coloring Your Mood

Did you know that the colors we wear influence our moods?  The same applies to the colors we paint our rooms. Some colors inspire, some calm and some energize.   I find color psychology to be very interesting.  This information could be helpful if you’re preparing for, let’s say, a date or an interview.

Read on to find out what the colors you wear say about your mood.

 

redRed-  Wear red if you’re looking for attention.  This color also symbolizes strength and power. Because this color stands out so much that is why our traffic lights use red for “stop.”

yellowYellow- Represents optimism and creativity and can suggest a person is lively.  Wearing too much yellow can be overpowering since it’s the hardest color for the eye to take in, which is why people and babies often get more upset in yellow rooms.

Orange-Work-Outfit Orange- Looking for a good time?  Orange is associated with fun times and warmth.

green Green- This calming color represents nature.  Green restores balance, reduces stress and is associated with peace.

blueBlue- There are many positive physical effects of wearing blue.  It is a color of faith, peace and creativity.  People often paint their offices blue because the color helps with focus and clear thinking. Overall, blue calms, but wearing too much blue can stimulate feelings of depression.  

PinkPink-  Unlike red, the color pink soothes.  It affects us both mentally and emotionally and calms aggression and feelings of neglect.  The color inspires love and compassion.  It is also used for skin treatments.  In fact, my favorite blemish drying lotion by Mario Bedescu happens to be pink.  

purple

Purple-  Purple is a purifying color used to detoxify the body.  Diseases are often treated with purple because it is a strong vibrational color.  Too much purple, however, can cause depression or suppress emotions, namely anger.

Black- Want to walk into a room and feel like you own the place?  Well, black expresses power, authority and elegance.  It is also associated with mourning and evil.
