Get Rid of The Bat Wings!

I am sure you all want to get your bodies ready for the spring and summer. The "bat wing" situation is a problem for a lot of people. For those of you that aren't sure what I am talking about, I am referring to the tricep area of the arm that can sometimes get a little flabby. Gwyneth Paltrow posted the below video on her website. The video features her personal trainer, Tracy Anderson doing a little dance routine that targets the arm muscles. I have to tell you that I just finished doing it and my arms are killing me. Sleeveless tops here I come!

Cocoa Comfort

Well, it's snowing here again! On days like this there is nothing I like more than a comforting cup of Puerto Rican style hot chocolate. I am of Puerto Rican descent, so once I take a sip of this hot chocolate it brings back so many memories of being a little girl. I can just picture my mom making it in the small kitchen of our old house. She would serve it with crackers and cheese. Now, the secret is to use Cortes Chocolate. This chocolate can usually be found in the Spanish section of the grocery store. To purchase it online click here. For a good hot chocolate recipe click here just make sure you use Cortes Chocolate and add a pinch of cinnamon!

Designer For Less

Here are some looks from the new Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection. Prices range from $17.99 - $199.99. I'm in love with that trench. Not too shabby for $59.99. The collection hits Target stores on March 7th.

Excuse me, gorgeous! I'm sorry, but how fabulous does Kelly Osbourne look!? She dropped about 40 pounds and is looking better than ever! Going from 160lbs to a healthy 118, she is truly an inspiration. Work, honey!

Moroccan Oil

I have been hearing a lot about Moroccan Oil. Celebrities like Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe swear by it. It's supposed to be the shizz for your hair. Now, I myself am more of a drugstore girl for my hair products, but I think I may want to buy this stuff. Have any of you ever tried Moroccan Oil? If so, what did you think?

I am in complete shock right now. Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home this morning. This is a huge loss for the fashion community. His innovativeness and originality will truly be missed.

On Monday night I saw a preview for the coming season of The Housewives of New York City and I literally got butterflies in my stomach. This season looks like it is going to be drama filled, just how I like it! I can't wait for Ramona's prescription med driven craziness, Jill's all up in your businessness, and Kelly's dumbassness. Damn you Bravo and your addictive television programming!
