eShakti- customized clothing for everyone!


OH How I love to find that one piece of clothing that makes you feel flawless. That piece that whenever you put it on it will hug all the right places or fall just right. That is what you could have everyday with eShakti.  The perfect design with your personal customization. 
Have you ever been tag in a "who wore it better?" What are the main reason's a person gets the most the votes? They could of accessorized differently or the other person wore too chunky of a shoe for the outfit but the real reason a person gets the most votes is ......FIT. Regardless of your fashion prowess if it doesn't fit you look sloppy or out of style, that is why I wanted to introduce you to eShakti
We believe that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion.  What began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces has grown  into an international company offering  fashionable custom clothing.  eShakti offers both design and fit customization for women size 0 through 36.
Custom Clothing at affordable prices!
 You love your legs = shorten the dress, Your arms are amazing= make it sleeveless. The options seems to be endless. I decided to just give my height and weight but you can customize as much or as little as you'd like. You would think a tailored look would take months to make and endless fittings but with the easy customization tool you'll have your look in as little as 2 weeks and no visits necessary; just enter your information and you're done. 

This is the beauty that I picked to try and I love the military inspired look but it is really the fit that makes it stand out.

If you have followed me for awhile you know that I come up with a new and festive drink to serve each and every Thanksgiving. It has to be fun and festive but easy to make and usually something I can make ahead of time for the lushes family to drink. This year I have finally found the perfect drink (whew ) 

Wait for it....

Holiday Ideas

I have been glued to pinterest these last few days for one reason only...Holiday ideas. I love changing up my decor and gifts each year but lets face it...I'm not that creative. That's where my love of pinterest comes in.  
This is what I'm loving now....

I actually made this yesterday and it took me a total of 20 minutes to do. I absolutely love it.

Carb cycling

via
Carb Cycling, so what is it? The Wikipedia defines Carb cycling as A cyclic ketogenic diet (or carb-cycling) is a low-carbohydrate diet with intermittent periods of high or moderate carbohydrate consumption. I first heard about it on Dr. Oz where Chris Powell was a guest. Like most woman I have tried a number of diets through out my years and for some reason or another never stuck to them or never got the results I was looking for. I would eventually give in to my sweet tooth telling myself that I should just be happy with how I look or some other self righteous notion that would allow me to quit and settle back into my routine of eating a bag of potato chips and whinning that my jeans don't fit. The only problem with that is you wake up and realize that it is not self powering to be overweight and lazy and eventually you have to face that fact that your a fat slob and need to get into gear. 
Okay maybe that is a bit harsh but I am really getting tired of my own justification on why I can be happy at my current weight. To be honest I am not considered overweight but as I had posted before I have a high percentage of body fat which is very unhealthy. I have joined a gym and although my body fat percent is lower and moving in the right direction each month I am still not getting the results I want as fast as I would like them. After meeting with my trainer after two months he said to meet my goals I MUST change my eating habits. Why would I put all the work into coming three times a week to work out if I was going to sabotage myself with what I shove into my face? Good  Great question! So after my work out I headed home to watch my beloved Dr. Oz and wouldn't you know it.....he was talking right to ME. Okay I am not crazy and I didn't hear him say my name but he was addressing the age old problem I have with dieting; cravings! I love me some food. It actually makes me giddy and sometimes when no ones around I will hum when I love something I am eating. Actually I have done that with people in the room too. Anyways, I love my sweets, salty, and spicy food and really can't seem to stick to a diet long enough to get any real results before I dive into the bag of chips or have a bowl of ice cream. So that brings me to Chris Powells Carb Cycling solution.

In a nut shell it is a day of high carb foods followed by low carb foods and the real reason I want to sing its praises.....you get a cheat day. Well hello potato chips and Ice cream! Yes once a week you get to enjoy the foods you have refrained from eating all week and it won't sabotage your progress. I am still in the research phase but this diet combined with my workouts will be the ultimate combination to bring me to my goal weight, I just know it. I have ordered the book from the library but plan on starting tomorrow with what I have found on Dr. Oz and other articles from Joefitness . Although they are all a bit different they do share the same basic principles.  

Have you tried Carb Cycling? What are your thoughts?

Happy Veterans day!
