When Alexi said we were going to be in Tiger Beat I immediately had a flash back to my room with ripped out pictures from the magazine of Kirk Cameron, Fred Savage, Scott Baio, the Cori’s and who could forget Zach Morris all over the front and back of my closet doors-my mom wouldn’t let me tape them to the walls it might rip the paint. I LOVED Charles in Charge! I know you are all in singing in your heads too “I want Charles in Charge of me.” Growing Pains, Wonder Years I could go on for days.
3Floz.com being in Tiger Beat might be one of the most exciting placement yet as I had a reason to pick-up a copy and go back to my childhood if only for a few minutes.
“Charles in Charge of our wrongs and our rights…” Yup still singing it!
Grapefruit: Want to ingest fewer calories during meal time? Eating half a grapefruit prior to gathering around the dinner table can help fill you up enough to where you are able to resist that second helping of tortellini. The plentiful amounts of soluble fiber in grapefruit slow down the digestion process.
Watermelon: Everyone has experienced the stuffed feeling that comes from this colorful fruit. The water invades the space that your stomach leaves open for food, thus making you less likely to pig out. Apples and pears produce a similar result, too.
Berries: If Hollywood still made horror films based around foods, The Attack of the Killer Sweet Tooth could easily be the name of a new thriller. Instead of allowing yourself to succumb to the temptation of a cookie, pop some blackberries or strawberries into your mouth. Frozen blueberries also provide the illusion of enjoying a cold, high-calorie treat (step away from the Häagen-Dazs!).
Veggies Cucumber:Refreshing and crunchy, is there anything better? Cucumber has very few calories and helps to stave off liver disease and pancreatic cancer, and even keeps your nails looking amazing due to the high mineral content. Keep a few slices in the fridge for a nourishing bite!
Hot peppers: Although they haven’t been directly linked to weight loss, spicy habaneros or jalapeños aid in curbing the desire to gorge since we typically eat less when our food has a fiery flavor. Hot peppers also comprise the compound capsaicin, which speeds up the metabolism.
Celery: If you’re a self-proclaimed snacker, celery will be your best friend. Not only does it satisfy the need to eat something, but it has virtually no calories (one cup of celery equals a measly nineteen calories). Tip: instead of adding cream cheese or peanut butter to the stalk, give fat-free cottage cheese or fat-free black bean dip a go!
Protein Greek yogurt: Some of us can’t stand traditional yogurt, but when it’s this thick and creamy we will race down to our favorite market just to stock up on it. Besides its wonderful texture, Greek yogurt “keeps you satisfied longer,” according to sports nutritionist Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, because all proteins take their sweet time leaving your stomach.
Eggs:Start the day off right with seven grams of protein! Having an egg in the morning will keep your body busy because digesting eggs burns more calories than a carb-infested breakfast.
Fish: It has been engrained in our brains that fish is full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. But did you know that wild salmon, tuna, and sardines all make your body more responsive to the fat-burning hormone leptin, which is responsible for suppressing your appetite? If you won’t eat fish, turkey can also help you ditch the extra pounds, as it encourages the release of tryptophan, which helps you sleep. Remember: lack of sleep wreaks havoc on your waistline!

WHAT: All natural, handmade papers are the Japanese geisha’s secret to petal fresh skin. Keeps skin fresh by removing excess oil and sweat without disturbing makeup or stripping skin of essential moisture.
HOW: Tatcha blotting pads were originally created by gold craftsmen to protect the precious metal they hammered into whisper-thin leafing to enrobe the majestic pavilions of Imperial Japan. Their golf-leaf artistry transformed the supporting paper into aburatorigami, an incredibly soft, strong and absorbent leaflet ideal for removing excess oils from delicate skin. They are the original beauty papers, made in the same tradition discovered by geisha over 300 years ago.
WHY: Free of pulp, mineral oils, synthetics, powders and fragrances that can dry and irritate delicate skin.
LOVED BY: Travelers who want fresh skin, particularly after long flights!
Sunscreens or heavy moisturizers- These products can leave a layer of oily film on the skin, especially sunscreen. TATCHA beauty papers will pick up the excess SPF moisturizer/lotion, without removing the benefits of the SPF.
Self Tanners, Tanning Mists, and Towelettes- TATCHA is excellent at absorbing excess self-tanner product off skin to prevent streaking. It instantly absorbs the wetness for a streak free tan, without disturbing the color absorption on your skin.
This week’s guest blogger is Natalie Alcala, a Cali girl with a penchant for all things style and fashion. When she’s not soaking up the sun or rocking dangerously high heels, you can catch her feeding her insatiable sartorial appetite on her blog, Natalie’s Menagerie. She also pens a…
We’ve all been through it before: the pounding headache, the hangover from hell, stress from work, PMS, the list goes on and on. With all the remedies we’ve tried or been told to use, somehow we seem to still be on a never ending search to find the perfect cure. Well, lucky for us (and now you,) we may have stumbled upon an answer. 21 Drops is a new and invigorating approach to solving a variety of health concerns. By combining the knowledge that has been known for years about the healing properties of plants, along with the information that we have regarding our bodies, minds and hearts, these drops were created in order to allow us to face off the every day affects from our constant interactions with daily life. These 100% naturally compounded formulas are designed to battle the 21 issues that we face the most.
After celebrating the weekend to it’s fullest, I would have loved to be able to use Drop #4, Hangover. Made from juniper fruit oil, geranium leaf oil, lavender flower oil and cardamom seed oil, the combination is designed to help detox while making you feel refreshed and revived.
As for days when I just can’t seem to get my mind together, I would immediately turn to Drop #9, Focus. This blend is catered to help clarify thinking and promote concentration due to the effects from rosemary leaf oil, peppermint leaf oil and frankincense rosin oil.
So go ahead, have that extra glass of wine without dreading about how you will feel tomorrow and don’t worry if it’s just one of those days when you’re not feeling your best…we’ve got you covered.
