February 10, 2013 starts the beginning of the year of the snake. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs.

Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create.

Olay Regenerist is the best specialty skincare product on the market! I have used many products to keep my skin smooth and young looking, but none have really worked until I literally stumbled upon Olay Regenerist while in Target. This stuff is magic! The microdermabrasion and a mini-peel treatment always leaves my face smooth and softer feeling with clean tight pores. I find that it's best to use it before you go to bed followed by a great moisturizer. If your in a pinch and you do not have time or the money for a facial then this is the best product for you.

L.A. Fashion Weekend on Friday, October, 19, 2012 was all about swimwear. Designers featured were Kate Swim, Nicolita "Havana Nights" by Christina Milian, Culture Swimwear, and Amelie by Andrea Abaunza. The common themes among all of the designs were the use of strong colors from coral to fuchsia and everything in between. Kat Swim’s show opening hot pink bikini with a floral triangle top was an instant hit with the crowd as were the beautiful cover-ups presented Andrea Abaunza. The weather in LA was warm, but the swimsuits on the runway were hot!
