Our Lord made every women beautiful

She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

MIA: with a terrible cold!

Hey ladies!! I am so so sorry to have fallen behind on my posting and tweets lately. I was supposed to have covered my Coastal Scents haul and the Julep giveaway by now (Btw, my first box came in already, let me tell you girls: gorgeous!).

Unfortunately, I came down with a cold last week and thought I was getting over it; but somehow, its only gotten worse! I've been getting LOTS of rest, fluids, staying bundled up and all that, but I only feel worse than before :/

I guess I'll just have to give it a few more days. As soon as Im better, look forward to the giveaway and tons of hauls and reviews! (I may have gone a little overboard on the "Hope this makes me feel better" shopping.. everyone does that, right?..). Until then ladies,
Stay Lovely!

How do you get over your colds? Any family traditions/recipes? I'd love to try some new soups recipes!

Here's a few little Mexican supersitions I'll share, my grandmother has been yelling things like this at me all week!
***Don't try these at home! This is just for laughs***

-Don't walk around barefoot!
-Put Bapuru (Vixs vapor rub) on your chest, joints, and the soles of your feet, but don't take a shower the next day!! (Yeah, that one was hard for me)
-Here drink this tea! (it was yucky!)
-Put a spoonful of Vixs in your tea and drink it! (I told her I did it when her back was turned)
-Rub some Vix in your nostrils! (That one burned...)
-Dont eat jalepenos! They have vinegar!
-Dont eat anything with vinegar!
-Dont eat that avocado, its too fresh.
-Dont eat potatoes, they'll give you cough!
AND a bunch of other crazy things that don't make sense to me half the time!!
But my grandmother means well :)

Were you raised with any funny things like this? Let me know in the comments section, I'd love to hear them! After all, they say laughter is the best medicine! Stay lovely ladies :)


  1. My friend, who is Cuban, is convinced vapor rub is a cure all. She'll put it on her forehead and feet.

  2. My grandmother is the same way! I have gone through an entire package of it this whole week! It does help me sleep at night though :)


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
