“Demi Lovato wakes up each morning and affirms her commitment to herself—to her health, her happiness, her being. Those commitments are the bedrock of her recovery and her work helping other young people dealing with the issues she lives with every single day.”
Other than being a platinum-selling artist, Demi Lovato is definitely one of the most inspiring young artists as well. She opened up about battling anorexia, bulimia, bipolar disorder and bullying and is now sharing her tips to staying strong and loving yourself in her first book “Staying strong: 365 days a year”.

I don’t know what it is about them, but lately I’ve been obsessed about all things owls (I blame Harry Potter ); from socks and pj’s to home decor and mugs.
The first “owl” that I got was this big silver decor piece that I bought last year at Home Goods for $15.00. I originally bought it as part of my Christmas decorations, but when the time came to take down the Christmas Trees and my little reindeer statutes I just left the owl in my living room where it remained for the rest of the year.

The lovely and beautiful Sophie of soinspo nominated me for a Sunshine Award. I was very happy, specifically because this award is given to bloggers who are “positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.

When my skin was at its worse few years ago and I was forced to go on birth control to stop my acne, I would spent hours at a time on acne.org forums. I would read reviews, others’ experiences with acne, etc. Being the genius that I am, I never thought of trying out the regimen, created by Dan Kern, the founder of acne.org.
I finally decided to give the regimen a try after many, many recommendations. I’m currently two weeks into using it. The whole regimen revolves around using a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment in large amounts along with a gentle cleanser and a very rich moisturizer. The regimen products can also be substituted with drugstore products and Dan actually recommends specific ones right here. Continue reading
